The Reviews

Our stay at Villa Faskomilia was beyond our expectation, this was our second time to Creta, and we could not have selected a better place.

The mountain and see view is magnificent. Even in August we always had a pleasing temperature due to the high altitude. We enjoyed the warm welcome by the Vasilakis family, which was an indication of their hospitality during our entire holiday. Mrs Vasilakis prepared several dinners: Moussaka, Beef Stifado, Pastitsio, Dolmadakia, cake, … and offered us their own produced wine, olive oil and raki. We never experienced this kind of hospitality in other rental houses.

The accommodation was perfect. Mrs Vasilakis changed towels and sheets every 2 days.

Our children (8y and 11y) loved the large swimming pool.

We highly recommend this property to other guests.

Nous avons passé une formidable semaine à la Villa Faskomilia. La maison en elle même est vraiment top, bien équipée, propre, fonctionnelle, et la vue est à tomber par terre. Dans les collines il règne un calme apaisant juste bercé par le bruit des chèvres qui gambadent. Et que dire des hôtes ils sont adorables. le jour de notre arrivée ils nous avaient préparé notre repas pour que nous puissions nous poser tranquillement. Le ménage est fait tous les 2 jours avec changement de serviettes, lits refaits…. et a chaque fois ils arrivent les bras chargé de nouveaux plats pour nous faire découvrir la cuisine crétoise. Merci encore à la famille Vasilaki! C’est vacances ont été riche en découvertes la Crête est vraiment une île magnifique et vraiment reposante et apaisante dans ce cadre parfait.

Nous n avons passé qu’une petite semaine dans la villa de Argiri et Irini à Harkia mais cela a été une semaine de vrai bonheur.

un séjour dans la villa Harkia ,loin des turpitudes de la ville , en pleine nature , est une véritable cure de jouvence.

L’accueil très chaleureux de Irini , les cadeaux de bienvenue, la propreté des lieux, la vue magnifique, la nature omniprésente, la piscine, tout pour donner envie de revenir.

Un grand merci à la famille Valisiki pour leur accueil et pour cette merveilleuse semaine dans un cadre authentique et naturel .

Vom 2-23. Oktober 2017 haben wir nun schon zum zweiten Mal einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in Harkia Villas verbracht. Das schöne Haus liegt auf ca. 500m und bietet Ruhe und Erholung abseits des Touristenrummels. Die Vermieter sind überaus nett und haben uns gleich bei unserer Ankunft mit einem leckeren griechischen Essen willkommen geheißen. Eine Woche später gab es nochmal eins und drei leckere Kuchen wurden auch für uns gebacken. Die wunderbare Landschaft und der Blick aufs Meer waren weitere Highlights dieser Unterkunft. Gereinigt wurde alle zwei Tage, was aus unserer Sicht nicht unbedingt nötig gewesen wäre. Insgesamt eine wunderbare Ferienzeit, die wir, und das ist nicht überall so, sogar mit unserem Dackel verbringen konnten. Haustiere werden ebenso willkommen geheißen wie die Zweibeiner. Wir können diese Unterkunft allen empfehlen, die Ruhe und Entspannung in gepflegter Atmosphäre bevorzugen. Vielen Dank für diesen schönen Urlaub.

Argiri’s place is beautiful, it’s just like you would imagine it from the pictures. The house itself is cosy, spacious and has all the comfort you’ll need. The outside and pool area is a dream, the view is amazing, the pool is very clean and the plants in the garden are beautiful. Definitely worth a stay if you want to relax in the sun!

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufnethalt. Das Haus ist sehr schön, die Lage traumhaft. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt, es wird sogar alle zwei Tage geputzt. Aber ganz besonders zu erwähnen ist die Gastfreundschaft der Familie! Mutter und Tochter, die vor Ort alles managen, sind unglaublich nett und man fühlt sich einfach wohl an diesem besonderen Platz.

Located in an impressive setting atop a ravine yet only 15 minutes from the sea, this brand new villa offers the best of the tranquility of the mountains as well as the vicinity to most of the interesting sites in Crete.

What truly grabbed us was the warm welcome and hospitality of the owners, which made us feel right at home.

An exceptional place in every way. We loved it!

This villa far exceeded our expectations in every way. The property/location are stunning and the owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful. In spite of arriving late due to getting lost (!) we were welcomed with a home-cooked meal and home produced wine. To our surprise we were treated to other home made goodies during our stay. The property was maintained to the highest standard and cleaning and linen changing was done on a number of occasions throughout our 11 day stay. We cannot recommend this villa highly enough. Should you choose to stay here the family will make you more than welcome and you will surely want to return.

We had a wonderful family holiday here with our four children. The villa had everything you could need and we spent lots of time enjoying the villa itself: relaxing by (∈) the pool, watching eagles, eating outside enjoying the stunning views and listening to all the wildlife around. We had hired a car (recommended!) and so we were also able to visit many lovely places in the region such as Knossos, Lake Kournas, Arkadi monastery, Preveli beach and Melidoni cave.

Thank you so much to our host family for their warm welcome and friendly helpfulness, including the delicious food that was there on our arrival and was very much appreciated.

Would recommend this villa to all!

We stayed in Villa Faksomilia in April for 2 weeks. Our hosts were very kind and offered cleaning and change of towels every 2nd day and did everything for making us feel like home. They also brought us some tasty traditional food from time to time as well as Raki, wine and olive pol. We had a very good vacation and enjoyed the silence and the fresh air very much. Also, the stunning view into the valley including sea view made us feel relaxed suddenly. We will definitely return to the villa to have another great holidays like this!
