We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Galini and We have the most fabulous time there.
The villa , grounds and views are so wonderful.
Michael is a wonderful host and is there if you need anything and it's never any trouble.
Highly recommend a stay here.
We stayed in the villa with 7 people this summer for the second time. We rebooked because it is a great place to spend the holiday. Iy is not a vert touristic place so we enjoyed the rest and the great views from the terrace.
It is not a very luxureous place but it has everything you need for a super relaxed holiday. Looking at the pictures these are all correct. What you see is what you get.
The hosts a very kind people who will go through great lenghts to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Eventhough it is not very touristic, going to the beach or more crowded places is just a 20-25 min drive. I do recommend a rental car.
Thanks for the stay Michael and family! Maybe we will visit again next year.
We spent 12 days in Villa Galini and wish we could had stayed longer. Villa Galini has a great combination: Located in a hill, very quiet location, away from the tourist groups, but not far from the beaches.
The Villa is well equipped, well maintained and very clean. It has plenty of internal and external space for large groups to relax and enjoy.
There is a village very close, where you can find a mini market, a bakery and a couple of traditional Greek taverns.
The host, Michael, is what sets this villa apart from many other rentals. He Is a great guy, always available to answer questions about anything, related to the house and the area. He gave us amazing tips about places to eat, visit etc.
You will need a car to move around, but it is worth to be able to enjoy the area close by and the eastern part of Crete.
Superb location, very quiet and clean place, perfect for relaxing during your holidays. Comfortable inside area and panoramic view from outside
Good villa in great location s short distance from Knossos, Heriklion and the airport. Authentic village atmosphere but only 1 or 2 local restaurants. Michael from the Villa was very helpful and always available. Recommended.
