Villa Diamantis was everything We hoped to get The owners of the house were outstanding. They were easy to get in touch with, and they hosted the best meal we had in the complete holiday ! We really hope that we are welcome back to this magnificent house ! Valia suggested to rent a car through Best Cars - and I must agree ! We had a puncture during our stay, and they came and changed the tire free of charge within 30 minutes :) I recommend anybody living in Villa Diamantis to rent a car. I will recommend this house to anybody travelling to Crete

Valia was awesome to work with throughout our experience started from our inquiry. She was great in providing useful information throughout our visit. The villa was amazing and had awesome views! The owner of the villa was soooo hospitable and gave us a very warm welcome which also included wine and food from their own farm! It was great to experience the Greek culture which is one of the reason we liked using Airbnb. We had a little issue with the washer but it was fixed right away. We will definitely visit again!

Villa Diamantis was perfect for our big group! We spent breakfasts on the upper patio laughing about the night before, lounged poolside in the afternoons and had an amazing food experience sponsored by the owners! This place is spectacular and all of us were so disappointed to leave!

Our group had a wonderful trip in Crete thanks to Valia. She contacted us beforehand to organize our trip and helped us have discount on rental cars and even helped us make reservations for Samaria Gorge with short notice. She was always available to answer our questions. The landlords of our villa were very welcoming. They helped us find a restaurant for our first dinner and they also offered us some raki. The villa was even better than we expected. We recommand Valia to everyone who wants to have a nice and enjoyable stay.
