Over the past 4 years since the villa has been built, we have recieved some fantastic reviews and feedback from guests providing us an opportunity to maintain the highest level of quality and improve on areas to continue to give you the best we can offer. Below is a selection of the testimonials.
Fantastic location. Far enough away for seclusion, near enough for amenities. Good local tavernas and cafes catering for all members of the family. Fully equipped villa, fully rested and fully satisfied. Would recommend 100% to friends and family for a great holiday. Invaluable information books for reference and opinions of places of interest. A must is Chania and bustling harbour, wife and kids enjoyed the shopping too!
One of our best holidays! There can’t be another villa that is so private, so quiet, with such fantastic views and superbly equipped for a family of six (three teenage sons and a 6yr old son!) - we had a great time. None of us wanted to go home - thanks to Crete Escapes for good recommendation, friendly service on site and the owners for lending us their house. There are many local sites and things to see several recommendations for local restaurants have been left in the comments book. ps. 6yr old son - " I REALLY LIKED THE BEDS AND THE SWIMMING POOL :-) -
Brilliant 10 days, beautiful villa, gardens views. Pool is just the best facility, Roof Terrace lovely - more tables and chairs up there would be great! We all had a very relaxing time, well away from the pressures of work etc! And we will always remember watching Andy Murray win Wimbledon 2013 - we picked up the final on Abu-Dhabi TV with Arabic commentary - all truly memorable!!
Wonderful week- 5 Star villa, everything works, beds are the best in Greece. Garden magnificent and will only get better. Great excitement chasing after the outside furniture in high winds. All the restaurants/ tavernas round about particularly good. Tried to keep away from the Raki and failed!
What a fabulous place. We were delighted with the villa and felt we had one of the best situations in the whole area. We had a great time - thank you.
Villa Kournedes provided us with the most comfortable and enjoyable stay whilst holidaying in Crete. It met all our needs and even when we had a minor set back with the loss of electricity one evening it was efficiently dealt with. The pool is wonderful and always clean!
Fabulous Holiday, great food, great villa. Plenty of local places recommended including tavernas in Gavalohori, Kournas Lake and Chania.
Another wonderful stay here - we love this place, it's one of our all time favourites. We will be back. Many thanks.
A lovely villa in a beautiful location. We have had a peaceful and relaxing week. Recommend the local taverana in the square in Gavalohori and the Pear Tree shop in Almerida for fresh fruit and veg which is really worth a visit. A wonderful holiday - thank you!
We had a very relaxing 2 weeks at this beautiful villa. We especially loved the pool as the sun was on it until the early evening. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and we also enjoyed the excellent local restaurants.
A greatly enjoyable 2 week holiday. We are all very relaxed and chilled out after an incredibly peaceful and enjoyable holiday. The villa exceeded our expectations and was well equipped. The views are outstanding and the local area perfect for young families. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone.
Wonderful week - weather, villa, surroundings - all so totally relaxing.
Really had a super holiday - thanks for letting us use your beautiful villa.
We returned again for the 3rd time! The weather has been stunning. We've spent more time in the villa on this trip. It continues to be a comfortable and clean base for a relaxing holiday.
We had a wonderful wonderful time in Crete. The weather was a bit grey for the first three days but we managed to do all the sightseeing then…and absolutely adored Chania. Then the weather improved and we sat by the pool and gaze at the views which were simply out of this world. The villa itself was lovely (in our top 5) with definitely the best ever view…had everything we needed. We fully intend to return. So thank you so much for all your help in arranging our holiday and I will be in touch (probably after the 2012 Games) to arrange our next trip.
Heavenly spot - thank you for letting us stay with you. Full on holiday. Best of all was the Samaria Gorge - 18 kms downhill (you need good hiking shoes and strong legs!)
Beautiful villa, peace and quiet - just what we required.
Fantastic - thank you so much. Everything was great and sunny for the whole stay. Villa was really well set up for the family and the setting was amazing. Recommend Aereki restaurant in Almerida and INKA (Kalyves) for shopping plus Pear Tree as above. See you again soon.
The best villa we have ever stayed in! Excellent standard and really well equipped. Good standard of cleaning, gardening and maintenance etc. Almyrida has almost everything you need - Pear Tree shop is excellent for fresh stuff. Dimitris is a lovely restaurant with friendly staff. Had a much needed relaxing break - thank you.
Fantastic villa and location, so quiet - all you can hear are the cicadas and after they go to sleep - absolutely nothing. Wonderful views, lovely pool, comfy beds.... Don't want to leave! Would recommend Dreams boat trip with Giorgos in Almerida. Thank you we had a lovely week.
We had a lovely week, very relaxing. The views from the villa are fantastic, the pool is great and we loved the quiet atmosphere. It is one of the best equipped villas we have stayed in. It was perfect
Fantastic villa in perfect location. Enjoyed some lovely meals especially long lazy lunches in Plaka and evening meals in Vamos. We'll be back.
Superb villa - plenty of space for 3 couples - The men enjoyed building the barbeque whilst the ladies wanted to take the kitchen home with them. Giant Jenga - 45 rows!
Lovely villa in a superb location for us. Wonderful peace and quiet - just what we needed. We were sad to go- will return in the future - Many thanks
Beautiful villa, peace and quiet - just what we required
Just a quick message on our return from Villa Kournedes. We had a superb time in a wonderful villa. It was everything we wanted, remote location yet within walking distance of tavernas, wonderful views, nice eating area with excellent patios and pool. All in all we couldn't have chosen a better villa for our needs
Superb villa, pool and gardens in an excellent location. We enjoyed every minute
A very enjoyable week, lovely villa in gorgeous surroundings. A great place to get away from it all with all the comforts of home. Amazing weather and glorious position!
Perfect villa in a fantastic location! Wonderful week of glorious sunshine, BBQ's, lazing by the pool and record breaking Giant Jenga
A lovely villa in a fantastic spot - very private and well equipped. Loved the BBQ and the herbs growing near to it. We've had a great week. Very sad to leave
We had a wonderful and relaxing holiday. The villa was simply beautiful. The views were amazing from all the balconies and verandas and completely private. We have already told our friends and family about it!
Hi – just got back from Crete and a stay at Villa Kournedes. We loved the villa which is really well equipped and in a beautiful setting. We would certainly recommend it to family and friends
We enjoyed our stay Villa Kournedes very much. We thought the villa was very well fitted out with high quality construction and furnishings. The views were excellent of the coast and mountains, and there were so many places to enjoy them from - balconies, roof terrace, etc. A very nice touch was the white robes in every bedroom/bathroom. The welcome pack was just that. The loungers and tables and chairs on the terraces were high quality and it was good to have two tables outside to choose from. Overall it was a very impressive villa.
