This place was great, awesome view, great space in the garden. We loved the villa, was clean and had everything you could need. We were there with our 16 month year old son who absolutely loved the place too. We had a great time, relaxed a lot and didn't want to leave. We were made very welcome by Sophie, moussaka and BBQ'd lamb were fantastic!

We would stay here again! The villa was beautiful and the sunsets over the sea were breathtaking. Valia was an amazing host who took care of our every need - before we arrived and during our stay. She was warm and inviting - she made us feel like welcomed guests to her beautiful country. Throughout our stay, Valia was incredibly responsive to all our questions and proactively anticipated our needs as a family with small children. Her recommendations were perfect! As one example, Valia offered private chef services, which allowed us to stay home and relax with the children. We enjoyed amazingly creative, and beautifully presented cuisine of restaurant quality -- at a similar price as if we ate out! We were impressed with the quality of the food and the chef. He also prepared a special meal for our toddler at no charge (his standard service). We treated ourselves to the private chef twice during our stay. If we had stayed longer, we would have invited him back to try his other impressive menus! As a second example, Valia recommended a wonderful babysitter when we wanted a special evening out. The babysitter was perfect and experienced with small children. My little girl connected with her immediately. She took the stress out of leaving our child in a new environment, and we could relax and enjoy our evening with no worries. We cannot thank Valia enough for her recommendations!! The property owner, Sonia, was equally amazing! She welcomed us into the villa and always greeted us with a warm smile! She made us feel so welcome and comfortable throughout our stay. Sonia lived nearby so if we needed anything she was there to help immediately. Sonia would often bring us fresh vegetables and fruits from her garden which were wonderful. Once she made us the most amazing moussaka we have ever tasted! We were spoiled by both Valia and Sonia! Together they made our vacation truly memorable and stress free!

The Chanteris Villa was exactly what we were looking for for our first family vacation. One hour away from Heraklion and situated near the village of Prinos, the villa is easily accessible by car, which is essential if you want to get around the island! Rethymno, Chania and Heraklion are only an hour of drive away and are easily accessible by the main road that passes near Prinos. There a few local restaurants where you can experience great Cretan cuisine for a low price. We recommend Poliou House on a Friday night so you can enjoy the traditional Cretan/Greek dances as well. The villa has everything to tend to your every need. We've enjoyed easily preparing our meals in the fully equipped kitchen and having our breakfast on the covered patio where we enjoyed the view of the sea nearby. If you would rather stay at home, you can also enjoy the spacious garden that the villa has to offer The swimming pool is perfect to take a dip into after a sunbathing session in the garden. Watch out for the bugs ! Because there are a lot of them but fortunately, the owners have installed screens on every window so the insects can't get in. Their worker comes and cleans the pool every other day so don't be alarmed if you hear a bit of ruffling in the garden early in the morning. The owners (Sonia and Kostas) are very nice and are super sweet ! They will tend to you every need so that you enjoy your stay as much as possible. They come and clean the villa every four days and maw the lawn when you ask them to. They are available when you need them and they will gladly show you around the village if you ask them to. They come and check on you once in a while just to see if you're ok. We once left very early in the morning to go to the Samaria Gorge and didn't came back home before 11pm. Sonia called me to see if we were ok because she didn't see our car the whole day and she was getting worried. I found it very sweet of her ! :-) This was our first Airbnb experience and do not regret to have chosen this villa for our trip. We highly recommend this property!

Das Haus entsprach in Ausstattung und Lage genau dem Inserat und erfüllte unsere Erwartungen perfekt. Die Gastgeberin überraschte uns trotz unserer späten Anreise mit einer grandiosen Mussaka und einem gefüllten Kühlschrank mit Frühstückszutaten und Getränken! Alles war wunderbar und wir verbrachten eine tolle Zeit dort! Besonders die schönen Sitzplätze um das Haus mit der grandiosen Ausblick auf das Meer haben es uns angetan. Nur sehr wärmstens zu empfehlen!

Wir wurden von Sonia spät abends herzlich empfangen und mit einer selbst gemachten Moussaka verwöhnt. Müde von der Reise waren wir froh nicht noch ein Restaurant suchen zu müssen. Unser Häuschen (eins von drei) war sehr gemütlich und gut eingerichtet. Der Aussenplatz ist grosszügig angelegt, mit wunderschönem Meeresblick und verschiedenen Sitzplätzen. Der "Pool" ist hingegen sehr klein, jedoch relativ tief. Einziger Nachteil für uns war die abgelegene Lage, ohne Auto geht gar nichts.

Отличная тихая вилла с прекрасным видом на море. Специально выбирали одноэтажный дом, поскольку были с маленькими детьми. Очень радушная и приветливая хозяйка. Уборка дважды в неделю, этого вполне хватает. Из минусов только недостаток шкафов, из-за часть вещей приходилось держать в чемоданах. Однозначно рекомендую.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à Chainteris Villa. La maison est très agréable, très bien entretenue, fonctionnelle et décorée avec goût. Les premières plages ne sont qu'à quelques minutes en voiture (indispensable), la piscine permet de se rafraîchir à tout moment. Valia a toujours été disponible, et Sonia, qui s'occupe de la maison, est très accueillante, gentille et prévenante. Nous ne pouvons que conseiller vivement de louer cette maison, aucune hésitation à avoir.
