“I’m already gone 2 times at Villas Lefkothea, each time was a very big pleasure. Manousos and his mother are very nice, helpful and gave very good tips about the region!
Near to Rethymnon, Villas Lefkothea is perfect for relax with an incredible swimming pool and beautiful villas (clean, spacious, good equipment…).
I will come back with pleasure and recommend this place to everyone!”
“We stayed at Lefkothea Villa in a quite big house for 2 weeks. We enjoyed it very much! There is everything you need to live in comfort: from a washing and dish-washing machine (which is extremely important for we stayed with children) to the TV with Russian channels and Wi-Fi.The place is striking by its beauty – the view on the foothills is amazing. The pool is clean and comfortable. The problem of getting to the sea and any shop was easily settled by the car hire. We would like to thank Manousos for the exhibition and for the tips concerning the places to go out, the food to eat.
The hosts are very friendly, ready to help any minute. They gave us a cordial welcome, for which we are very grateful to them! It’s a 20 minute’s walk to the sea, and it takes 10 minutes to get there jogging. The nearest supermarket is in 15 minutes on foot from the villa. This way of spending a vacation is far better than any hotel can provide. We are likely to come back next year for a longer period of time.
Best regards to Manousos, Eleni and Maria! The group of hunters from Russia with love.”

“Excellent place for a peaceful and relaxing stay in Rethymno
I stayed at villas Lefkothea with my daughter at the end of September 2013. Great location not far from the center of Rethymno. The villas were surrounded by olive trees and garden. The owners, Mrs Eleni and Manousos made us feel very comfortable with their hospitality. Room was clean and comfortable. Clean swimming pool surrounded by greenery. Definatly we will visit Villas Lefkothea next year during summer.”
Niki Chrysanthou, Cyprus
“We had a very nice stay in Villas Lefkothea. We stayed with our 3 children for 3 days and were impressed by the hospitality of the owner. It’s a well maintained and clean house with a wonderful swimming pool. We can recommend this house to everyone who wants to stay in a beautiful part of Crete!”

“Villa Lefkothea is well facilitated for families whith children, with its quiet but yet proximity to several beaches, restaurants and shops. The house has also internet access, which suits the youth very well. 4 childeren from 11-15, had no problem using the internet at the same time. One youth spend a lot of time playing basketball at one of the Schools nearby. We also hired bicycles for mountain biking.
Manousos and his Family provides very good service and know how to take care of their guests. We were given many tips/suggestions to good restaurants and Places to visit. The house, as well as the swimming pool and outdoor area is very clean and well maintained. We felt very welcome from the very start of our stay.Before we left, we were given a bottle of the high quality olive oil from the Lefkotheas garden, which we are enjoying at special occations. At our experiece, the Cretan people are very service-minded in general.”
Siv Skogvik, Norway
“We stayed in Villa 1, which was a perfect fit for us (parents with 2 children, 4 and 1 year-old)
spacious, clean, well equipped
very nice view from the terrace, with shade and air
ideal and very clean swimming pool to swim and for kids to play safely
well located: close to the sea (more sand beaches + warmer water on the North coast), close to Rethymnon and not too far from Chania easy day (or even 1/2 day trips) to exceptional beaches in the West of the island, North & South sides.”
Frédéric T., France
“Just returned from a wonderful holiday in the Villas Lefkothea. The villa where we stayed is very comfortable for two families with small children. The area is very safe, spotlessly clean and with very good configuration. Manousos and courteous mother made us feel very comfortable from the first moment. The area is quiet without being secluded. With great pleasure we will stay again in the future. Highly recommend.”
Nikos Aivalis, Athens
“We stayed for 2 weeks in the smaller villa with our 2 children (5-7years old). The villa is simple but clean and has everything you need including air conditioning. The terrace is superb with nice views.
The pool and garden is fantastic, perfectly maintained pool. The children loved it. The owner gives a lot of advices on places and beaches to go , things to visit, taverna’s to eat. Inside information of a ‘local’ is always good.
We highly recommend this villa.”
Koen en Sara Mermuys, Belgium
“Great location! We (family with 4 kids) were there for 4 nights and had a great time. Manousos was very friendly and helpfull by bringing me to the mini market and renting bicycles.”
Hans Lubbers Arnhem, Netherlands
“The location is great (the sea is at 1km, Rethymnon is close too), and so is the pool! Manousos welcomes you very nicely and is here to help during your stay if you have any question. A really nice place to stay, whether you are a group of friends or a family.”
Aurore Martin, levallois (FR)
“In June 2013, we had a rest with 3 children in a Villa Lefkothea II with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Villa is comfortable, the rooms are very conveniently located. Our children were delighted by the swimming pool, by cats with their kittens. With neighboring children they played football. It was very fun. Here is a beautiful garden: olive trees, palms, flowering oleanders. The pool is great, but there is a place of small depth, which is handy for small children. Also we made friends with the owners of the Villa. The villa owners are very hospitable and friendly, ready to help in any situation, tell much about the attractions of Crete. So we felt at Villa fine, like at home.
Crete is an island with a thousand years of history. There are many places to see. In this sense, the Villa is conveniently located just 8 km from Rethymnon, where you can visit the Old town, the Fortress of Fortezza (built by Venetians on the rocky hill of “Palaiokastro”). Also Rethymnon is famous for its beaches. That is also good for those who seek relaxation in a sea and beaches. Municipality of Rethymnon is also convenient because you can easily get to the South, West and East of the island.
With kind regards,
Natalia Balakina and all my family.”
Vladimir and Natalia Balakin, Russia

They really take care of you and even gave us some fruit, raki and some olive oil made from their own olives as a welcome present. Fantastic! Very nice garden and olive grove. You do need a car to get around to tavernas and beaches.”

“We had 3 days of fun and relax. Owner is absolutely nice. In the village 500 metres up you can buy fresh goat milk from a lady (ask in a shop), and there is an apricot tree near the villa.”
“Villa Lefkothea II with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a spacious living area with kitchen is a very nice house for two families. The terrace offers plenty of space for evening / night talking without bothering anyone . The owners are very friendly and helpful. As a starting point for trips was ideal for us to the beautiful beaches or the beautiful harbor cities in Crete. The pool is very well-kept and invites you to cool off after a day at the beach again. The supermarket nearby provides everything you need.”
Ingrid Schmidt, Hanau, Germany (DE)
“This year we stayed fourth time at this wonderful place. It is the right place to relax in a nice and quiet ambience.

The owner family is very friendly and helpful. All in all a invitation to come back again!
