Other Things to Note
Givera Villas (Villa Givera and Villa Metochi) is a family business launched by Mr. George Kazilas who built these two properties with great care and personal work. His goal was to maintain the Cretan heritage and tradition and to be able to spread it by letting other people experience the area, the landscape, the agriculture and the way of Cretan life. Today, after many years of know-how, the Kazilas Family is proud to offer high quality services and a vacation experience which can rarely be enjoyed when doing mass tourism.
The two villas are located in two different areas of Rethimno.
Guests are responsible to ensure that the property is left in a reasonable condition of cleanliness and in the same condition of repair as upon arrival. The total number of guests staying at the property may not exceed the number of sleeping places specified.
This was a wonderful experience. The villa is top notch. A quite environment not far from local shops and the beach. The location has a nice garden and swimming pool and all well maintained. A place we certainly can advice.
Nice and very clean house.. but its only 2 bedrooms with one bathroom, it was very difficult for adult 3 gentleman. Pool was not heated but clean. If you there at summertime the bedrooms don't have air conditioning, there is a good AC unit in the living room.
BIGGEST PROBLEM..EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND, make sure someone meets you in town, it took us an hour to locate this house, most locals did not know where it was.
Value= very poor , we payed over 1880.00 dollars for a week, you can find other accommodation in town for fraction of this coast, we payed this expecting bigger and better..
ps.The town is fun in 2-3 days you can see it all, very-good swimming beach.
Everything was as promised. Very clean & very nice and well maintained. I would recommend this place 100%.
Very minor and only issue was the local/neighborhood dogs who barked at night.
Villa Metochi is a lovely, comfortable and peaceful place with beautiful view. It is good to have a car here. We have not met Marina, but she was in contact with us all the time. We strongly recomend both the host and the place.
