Very nice property and lovely location

We had a lovely stay at the villa, the villa had everything we needed and was well equipped. Our daughter lives in Crete and we visit every year, we have stayed in a number of villas around this area and this is the best one to date and we will definitely stay again.                                        (5* HomeAway )

Beautiful villa, ideally situated between Rethymnon and Chania

Quiet setting on the hills but yet close to the beaches between Georgioupolis and Kavros.

Owners are very kind and attentive. Regularly checking with us if everything was OK.

The house has everything you need for a self catering holiday. and all equipment is functional. Recommend the Terra Cotta shop in the village of Kournas for olive oil and ceramics.                 (5* HomeAway)

August / September 2018

 

Vi har hatt to flotte uker i denne fantastiske villaen fra 28.7-11.8.18.

Alt hva hva angår selve bestillingen fungerte godt. Eierne var veldig serviceinnstilt og vi fikk all den informasjonen vi trengte.

Basert på bildene på Finn.no hadde vi store forventninger. Disse ble innfridd og vel så det. Fantastisk beliggenhet og utsikt! Du får en følelse av å bo utenfor turistløypa, med sauer og koselige Kournas Village som nærmeste nabo. Samtidig er det bare ca 4 km til flotte strender og et mer typisk turistområde.

For oss var Villa Karin et godt utgangspunkt for bilturer til ulike steder på øya. Vi fikk med oss Spinalonga, Knossos og flere turer til strender på sydsiden av øya. Men det var og flott bare å være ved og i området rundt villaen. Selv hadde jeg daglige joggeturer på grusveiene i området. Kjekk måte å bli litt kjent med nærområdet på.

Alt i alt: Kan anbefales på det varmeste!(FB)

“Takk
Nå er vi vel hjemme igjen etter å ha hatt to svært fine ferieuker i Villa Karin. Det er flere grunner til at ferien ble så vellykket og sentralt i dette står, naturligvis, selve Villa Karin. Husets utformning og hagen gjorde at vi nærmest umiddelbart fant oss mentalt og praktisk til rette slik at dette ble vårt "home away from home". Videre beliggenheten - fredelig for seg selv i et naturskjønt, "sterkt" landskap, med samtidig med muligheter for raskt å nå ut, når vi ønsket det. Vi har tilstrebet å bo i deres hjem på en skånsom måte og håpet at vi har lykkes med det.(mottatt på e-post)

“Vi har hatt 2 herlige uker her og trivdes veldig godt. Været har vært enestående. Vi har hatt fine utflukter til bl.a. Chania, Rehythmon og Heraklion og kost oss med mye god mat på diverse tavernaer og restauranter.

Det er et flott supermarked (per norsk definisjon) i Rehythmon som heter AB Supermarked. Mye bedre enn Lidl. Vi anbefaler også tavernaen Georgia's, som ligger i nærheten av Lake Kournas.

Dagens treningsøkt har vært ned til Kournas og opp igjen. Denne turen er ca 9,5 km. En littkortere tur på ca. 6,5 km, men finere, er tur-retur Lake Kournas fra villaen på oppmerket skogsvei.
Takk for oss! (5* FB)

“Everything about Villa Karin was perfect.

This is a perfect villa for a family in a very quiet location but only a short drive to good restaurants and the scenery around this part of Crete(5* HomeAway)

" This is our last day in Crete and we wanted to let you know what a great fortnight we have had here, made all the more memorable by the delightful Villa Karin and its position in the unspoilt foothills of the white mountains.

" Sunny week, some wind, but not too hot. Most of the time has been spent on the beach, by the pool or down in Georgioupolis. Thanks for a lovely stay in a super place.

" The villa and its facilities were marvellous, we had a wonderful 10 days with our only regret being that we didn't extend it to 14 days! The view from the villa was excellent, the tranquility very welcome as was the breeze that came up from the valley in the mornings and evenings. We have a great time swimming in all manner of environments, mostly the pool but also Kournas Lake and at the beach. As a family we had a great time in the pool playing games and having fun together. Lovely location, fantastic villa.

" Thanks for a wonderful week at Villa Karin. The scenery is amazing and we have loved to sit by the pool looking towards the sea and the mountains, listening to the sheep, feeling the warmth of the sun and looking at the stars at night. We would recommend the taverna in Kournas village called " Kanakaki Maria"  great food and nice people. Thanks again for a great vacation - this villa  its views, great pool and peacefulness has been just what we needed.

" Enjoyed our stay. The villa was very comfortable and the situation beautiful. We would recommend the local taverna " Kali Kardia"  in Kournas village - they were very welcoming and the food was great. We had a trip to Knossos - easily found. Enjoy.

" We spent 3 wonderful, relaxing weeks here with Villa Karin as our base. It's a fabulous, peaceful, rural retreat yet within easy reach of the coast and with lovely mountain scenery too. It was exceptionally equipped for self catering and we loved all the different terraces. Like others we thought Valentino's in Georgioupolis was a lovely place to eat, and we also liked a taverna just up from the lake which had good views across Lake Kournas. All in all we had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend Villa Karin to others.

" Villa Karin is a beautiful villa with a lovely pool, fabulous views down to the sea and gorgeous flowers. We watched the the local farmer controlling his sheeps, without a dog, every morning and collecting honey from the hives on the hillside.

" A wonderful start to our honeymoon in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Villa Karin. We have enjoyed relaxing by the pool and visiting Lake Kournas, Georgioupolis where we spent a few evenings and Rethymnon. We recommend Valentino's taverna in Georgioupolis. A fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa to which we would definitely return.

" We had a great time at villa which is in a quiet setting with a beautiful view. The villa is very spacious and well equipped, especially for self catering. The pool area was well furnished with plenty of chairs and loungers. We thought the location was very good too as you can get to the beaches  which are just a short car ride away. Found a good taverna in Kournas. Overall our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at Villa Karin.
