“Peaceful countryside villa with warm-hearted welcoming family.””

Stayed for a week at Villa Maria and enjoyed every single day - a quiet and peaceful retreat. The villa is beautifully appointed and perfectly situated for exploring both the north and south of the island. On the days when we weren't out and about, we sat on the villa's veranda soaking in the sun, listening to the bee-eaters, and watching hawks soaring on the thermals over the mountains. Eva, Stratos, Fouli and Maria are the the most welcomingt hosts and Eva's cooking is legendary - don't miss a chance to sample a meal or two! A perfect relaxing getaway.

“Eccellente place”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This year we stayed twice at Villa Stratos, Kaloniktis: in May in Villa Fouli, bigger, with friends, and in August in Villa Stratos. In both cases, we had a great time, the villas are surrounded by greenery, slightly on the hill, you never suffer the heat and each has a pool for afternoon relaxation. Not very distanced from popular beaches and beautiful with clear water. Both have spacious, well furnished, kept very clean by the hosts who are also cordial and use offer, during your stay, a dinner in their home. Dinner course dishes with recipes greek / crete is fantastic, it remains etched in your memory. Absolutely recommended!

“Stratos Villa means home”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed in Stratos Villa with my family and my girlfriend during this summer.
If I have to discribe it with few words I could certenly say: "it's like being in a beautiful friend's house".
The house is very nice and big, always clean, with all accessories and stuff that you need for a relaxing holiday.
the pool (with the option of hydromassage) is perfect if you are so lazy that you don't want to do 10 minutes drive to reach the sea (the beach in Episkopi is really really nice).
Family Kapetanaki is the best family you could find, always kindly and friendly.
when you arrive the fridge is already full with vegetables (grown by Stratos) and drinks.
Eva is a great cook, she prepares Greek's specialities better than any restaurant!
If you want to visit Crete (wich is a wonderful island) I would definitely reccomend Stratos Villa, if you want to fell yourself at home even if you are on holiday!

“As if you were member of the family”

We spent one week at Villa Fouli of Stratos VIllas in Kaloniktis. The stylish villas overlook a small hill and are located in a quiet place surrounded by soothing nature. We explored the area with mountain bikes which we rented in Rethymno (excellent provider / service). That way we were able to visit some of the most exciting places around like Kaloniktis, Roustika, Argiroupoli, Zouridi, Episkopi. Even the sea we reached by bike! Rethymno/Crete is ideal for holidays & mountain biking. And after biking we enjoyed the large pool and relaxed on the calm veranda or on the huge balcony. Villa Fouli is a bijoux combining luxury with tradition. Stratos family with Eva, Stratos, Fouli and Maria make you feel as one of the family member just from the beginning. They did all to make our stay an unforgettable experience, doing more than meeting our expectations and doing it with love. Thank you once again for everything!
