It is an absolutely awesome place and the hosts, Yiannis and his family, are the meaning behind "hospitality". From a location with fantastic view, to the cleanness of the place being taken care of every second day, to nice touches like the welcome present in a form of homemade cakes, to a great value for money, this is definitely the property to recommend.
We traveled a family of six with two kids (7 and 2 years old) and the villa was a perfect match for our needs: the rooms are large and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the backyard is very convenient both for barbecue and for playing with children (actually, due to the number of people in our party, we even got an upgrade from Melodia to Pathos, which is the same, as I understand, in terms of interior, but has a more spacious backyard).
If we are ever back to Crete and look for a place to stay, Uphoria will be our first choice, much of the success of our vacation is thanks to Uphoria villas.
I've stayed in this beautiful villa last year. The host is a very friendly man. My experience was excellent. I recommend this villa
We had an amazing time staying at Pathos Villa. Everything is just as in description or even better.
The surroundings are beautiful - a quite village outside Bali, preety much everything you can hear are goats' bells ringing from the distance ;) So a very nice place if you want calm and releaxing stay.
The villa offers preety much everything you need: kitchen is fully equipped, there was a lady coming to clean the property everyday and everything looked new and clean.
The pool is small but clean and offers a great way to cool down and relax during hot summer days.
The garden quite spacious and very nice - there's a barbecuing place, so you can use it to prepare some food eat outside.
Bedrooms are cozy, air-conditioned and the beds were very comfortable. One bedroom has a terrace with some amazing views.
Apart from the property itself the owners are one of the best hosts we ever had - nice, always smiling and very helpful. They make sure you have a great stay all the time. They come to the villa from time to time just to check if everything is ok.
Some tips about the area:
- if you're up to water sports - there's a great place called Lefkaris Water Sports at Bali village - great prices and service (boats, jet skis, kayaks, boat excursions)
- for best tavernas head to Bali port area
- if you want to do some serious shopping look for supermarkets like INKA, Carrefour or Lidl - either in Heraklion or Rhetymno - so do it rather on the way from airport before you come to village
- Bali village offers quite a lot - lots of tavernas, car rental places, local shops and few mini-supermarkets
- Ideas for local trips (by car): Knossos, Cretaquarium, Rhetymno old town, beaches on north & south side of island
We recently came back from a 9 days vacations on Crete/Bali. Crete is charming, historically rich, with great food and lovely people. Villa Uphoria played a major part in making our stay more wonderful.
We loved the location in the hills (20 minutes walk to the beach, but we rent a car) and would recommend it strongly. Villa is ideal place for families / friends. Fully equipped rooms and kitchen,nice and very clean pool, always smilling staff. Yanis was very friendly and helpful, he kept his promises and tried to help us in all situations. He replaced broken sandwich-maker very quickly and helped with wi-fi wehen we run out the traffic. Thank you a lot, Yanis! We appreciate your help!
Séjour du 10 au 24 Août.
Nous avons énormément apprécié notre séjour dans la villa Mélodia. Un grand MERCI à Giannis pour sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité et son accueil. Il a tout fait pour que notre séjour soit agréable. Un grand MERCI aussi à sa maman qui nous a préparé des petits plats. La maison est idéalement située, au calme dans les oliviers et tout proche de Bali. Nous avons passé 15 jours merveilleux.
It was a very good experience in this lovely place. Yiannis was a really great host. The villa is perfect And very clean. We loved The swimming pool in front of The mountains ! With pleasure we Will return in this villa ! Thanks a lot Yiannis
We spent a few days at villa uphoria and Had a great time. Villa is well equipped swimming pool was appreciated by the family and Stavros did everything for us to have a nice stay
Notre séjour d'une nuit à Mélodie Villa fut une excellente surprise !
Bien que difficile à trouver ( le site web vous en dira plus ) la maison est au coeur d'un coteau magnifique avec au loin la vue sur la mer.
La maison est neuve et dispose de 3 chambres pour 2 personnes.
Les volumes sont généreux et la piscine privative est la bienvenue.
L'accueil ( par Stavros ) fut très sympa et nous avons été agréablement surpris par les gateaux préparés à notre intention.
Le WiFi est relativement performant ( pour le pays ).
Une excellente adresse !
Great appartment! Great service! We had a fantastic holiday!
Very nice villa and helpful host
