We spent 10 very enjoyable days at Villa Aikaterini. Booking & arrangements for airport transfers, food shopping & information about the local area were made simple, thanks to Ariadne of Authentic Crete, Georgios (local taxi) & Sandra, who visited us to make sure we had all the info we needed.
On arrival, despite the late hour, we were greeted by the owners, who were welcoming & attentive. They left us a spread of food to enjoy & spoiled us with home baked treats throughout our stay. Thank you, Angeliki.
The villa was secure, spacious, clean & very well appointed. The grounds were immaculate & there was plenty outside furniture with various outside seating options. Every window had insect screen doors, beds were comfortable & special mention has to be made of the soft cotton bed linen, changed twice a week.
The only disappointment was the pool. It was one of the main reasons we had booked this villa but we found it so uncomfortably cold that we were unable to make use of it. The pool is an integral part of the villa hire, so we feel it should be usable whenever the villa is available for rent. Perhaps solar panels could be used to heat the pool, as they are to heat the water.
Despite this, we would have no hesitation recommending or returning to this lovely villa.

My two daughters, son in law and two grandchildren and myself spent two weeks in this lovely villa. We arrived in the early hours of the morning to be greeted by owners who had provided a delicious spread of food which was quite unexpected. This lasted us for at least two days! The villa was in a lovely position on top of a hilltop looking down a ravine to the sea. It was well fitted out to a high standard. We enjoyed walking to the local villages and walks around the area. The owners could not have been more helpful when there was a problem with the gates and electricity- living nearby they dealt with the problems immediately. The cleanliness was excellent and the food provided by Angelika was superb and the Easter food basket was an additional bonus and very thoughtful. We would all thoroughly recommend a stay in this lovely villa. PS being English some mugs would have been useful for our tea!!
We spent a week at Villa Aikaterini and loved it. The villa was very spacious, clean and tidy. We were met and welcomed by the owners. Booking was very straightforward and we received lots of information from Adriadne. Once we were settled Sandra came by and provided info on local activities. The location is excellent....lots of little villages and very good tavernas close by.
