.. in Creete.

Villa Talea is perfect for relaxing and joyfull family time.

The house is placed on a hill with the most fantastic view to the Talea mountains.
We have nerver seen a swimmingpool placed so beautiful.

The owners have kept the house in totally authentic style, which we think is very nice.

Every practical issues was absolutely alright.
The website is updated and very useful.

We really like the place and we have and will highly recommend it to everybody we know.

“Beautiful Villa, Stunning Views”

Villa Talea is the perfect villa for a peaceful getaway, lovely spacious villa, beautifully clean. The outside area was perfect with lots of sun all day but shade if you needed it and a very clean and perfect temperature pool. Inside space was also good (not that we used it much!).

Whilst you definitely need a car to get here it was great having no neighbours and towns/villages of Bali, Panormos and Rethymnon not far, we even managed to get a bar man to call us a taxi back from Bali after a few too many cocktails!

I would definitely recommend a stay here (been back a few days now and still missing that view in the morning!).

“fabulous quiet villa”

We loved Villa Talea. Accommodation was perfect for 4, me, husband + daughter and partner. Beautifully finished home with everything we needed for a lovely relaxing holiday. Rooms were clean, kitchen equipment plentiful, comfortable seating options. Fabulous little pool - water much warmer than others we have experienced on the Greek islands. Views were stunning even during the brief thunderstorm. Important to have a car as this villa is on its own up a short rough road - we loved the quiet - easy drive to smaller villages or into main towns of Rethymno and Iraklio. Only a few minutes from the main coast road so good base to explore this part of Crete. We flew into Chania - easy drive along the main road, took just over an hour.
