Superbes vacances à Réthymno. Voyage mémorable. Appartement vaste, propre, site exceptionnel en plein coeur de la ville : restos, épiceries, clubs... Tout simplement génial ! Avons été accueillis par les parents de Valanti. Monsieur Nick nous a guidé dans la ville dès notre arrivée pour éviter que nous perdions trop de temps dans les ruelles. Il suffisait de l'appeler pour fixer le point de rencontre. Stationnement gratuit à proximité. Bref, séjour parfait !!! Merci à Valanti et ses parents pour toutes les informations et leur hospitalité.
L'appartement de valanti est parfait! En plein centre de rethymnon, tranquille, bien organisé, beau...en plus ces parents qui nous ont accueilli sont d'une gentillesse exquise. Une des meilleures expériences avec airbnb!
Had a brilliant stay in Valanti's house, we ate breakfast on the lovely roof garden, cooked local ingredients from the market in the enormous well equipped kitchen and loved the atmosphere of the bustling old town! The flat is big and spacious, spotless and comfortable, it felt like home from home. Nick and Anna met us to show us around and were very friendly and welcoming. If we returned to the area we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!! Thanks.
The apartment was located in the old town, very central to restaurants and cafes. Grocery store and tourist office very close by. The accommodations were comfortable and spacious, with a nice roof top terrace, well equiped kitchen. The owners came to meet us and show us the apartment. They were very helpful and made themselves available if we needed any assistance. We would definitely stay again in the future.
Valantis house is very nice! Cosy, spacious, perfect location in the ancient city, roof garden & balcony is great, big kitchen, 2 bed rooms, 2 bathrooms (as depicted at the page)! Everything is in a short minutes walk: supermarket around the corner, nearby parking space, lots of restaurants, bars, shopping. The hosts (Valanti and his parents) are very hospitable, we got fresh oranges & fresh eggs from their farm, coffee and raki. Rethimnon is also a nice & central place to stay in Central/West-Crete. Short travel time to Heraklion, Chania, Matala, etc. We had a perfect stay!
Valanti and his parents were waiting in the house for us to arrive. We arrived in darkness in a downpour, but after a quick phone call, Nick, Valanti's father, came out to meet us and guide us to the house. Valanti and his mother made the others feel at home, while Nick took me to park our hire car. (There is free parking along the sea wall by the Citadel)
The house was exceptionally well equipped, and cupboards and fridge were stocked with condiments, bottled water, oranges and Raki.
A well stocked small supermarket was close by, and we often succumbed to temptation at Hari's Creperie - you could almost read the menu from the balcony. And down below a wonderful bakers shop provided breakfast pastries.
Old Town Rethimnon is lovely for exploring - no cars, the odd moped, lots of quirky shops, a vast choice of cafe's & restaurants, and lots of cats to feed.
Despite the late October rain we found plenty to see and do, and would love to return.
Valanti and his parents are perfect hosts. They made us very welcome on arrival and were very informative, as we had hired a car we were met and shown free parking a short distance from the house. The house is lovely and spotlessly presented with everything that you need, positioned perfectly in the centre of town. Rethymnon town is a wonderful place to stay which offers a wide choice of excellent restaurants, bars and shops and is central to seeing other parts of the island. I can highly recommend a stay in this fabulous townhouse which provided us with the perfect holiday.
