What others say about Villa Lemoni
For the first time visited Crete, what a fantastic island. Lots of driving around due to the bad weather, but seeing a lot of beautiful things. Visited all the recommendations from previous reviews but also selected routes. The house was fantastic, lovely to celebrate in this house. Thank you for your hospitality and who knows until next time. Maarten and Annelies (September 26, 2017 until October 7, 2017)
We have had two nice weeks here. The house is located in a quiet area. The steep access road is difficult for the first time with a rental car, but after some practice it does not matter anymore. The house is well equipped and everything works. There are many good restaurants in the area and the biscuits of the local bakery are delicious. The beaches provide something for everyone. We wish everyone a nice holiday. (translated from German) Almut and Georg (September 11, 2017 until September 25, 2017)
We were here for the second time and it was again really perfect. Bernhard and Renate
(August 30, 2017 until September 6, 2017)
We had an excellent stay. The view is beautiful and the house has everything you need for a vacation. It’s quiet and if you’re in a hurry it’s not a ten minute drive down. The pool is not very big, but our kids loved it. Also nice that there were all kinds of stuff for the kids to play in the pool. Overall, highly recommended. Leo with family (August 21, 2017 until August 30, 2017)

It is nice destination as well defenetly will look to visit the Villa again . Owner and staff very nice and gave us very usefull tips. Zlatomir with family ( August 5, 2017 until August 19, 2017)
What a great villa in a quiet area, yet very central to the beach, town etc. The villa is very tastefully decorated and it really lacks, we enjoyed it for 12 days. The information about tips in the area was very easy and gave us nice trips and seen beautiful places. The owner is always available for any questions, thanks for that Ruud! We will definitely come back to this beautiful place. Walther with family (July 24, 2017 until August 4, 2017)
Me and my wife have rented the Villa Lemoni for the second time and from here on our daily beach and city excursions. For this the house is located perfect on the island. Empty sandy beaches and small bays are about 20 – 30 min drive away. A well-known supermarket chains can be reached in just 10 minutes. Great authentic tavernas can also be reached in short drives or even walking. We found the house with pool, as well as the garden as last year, in a clean and tidy condition. Everything is top clean! We felt right again well … Quasi home 🙂 Thanks Ruud for the beautiful weeks! (translated from German) Sebastian and Katharina (July 3, 2017 until July 14, 2017)
The service, the extensive info, the tranquility, the beautiful surroundings, beautiful beaches (for all tastes), nice restaurants (delicious food) and the very well-equipped villa with beautiful views were the ingredients for the ultimate holiday feeling. Villa Lemoni, owners and manager …. A big 10 !!!! We really felt welcome and for us it will not be staying at this one time. Jan and Inger (june 22, 2017 until june 30, 2017)
A very nice and clean villa with everything you need. Mooie super opgeruimde woning met alles goed geregeld. The beds are somewhat less, but the rest is perfect maintained. Much information and care from the owner, thanks for that. Paul and wife (may 22, 2017 until may 29, 2017)
Paul, thanks for the review. I am sorry to hear from the beds and too bad that you did not report it to Robert during your stay. It was only a small shelf which was broken and has replaced after you left and the problem is solved. But I hope that your stay was nice at all. Regards, Ruud
Lovely week in Lemoni. Everything you need to have a nice holiday is available in the house. The pool was lovely and the nice landlord gives us sevaral tips. To eat in taverne Kastro in Mesi is perfect, what a nice view over the sea and the valei. Patries and husband (may 13, 2017 until may 21, 2017)
It was our fifth time in Lemoni, this year with the Easter holiday. We learned a total different Crete and also in this time of the year the Villa is great. A perfect place, perfectly maintained and very nice tips from Robert, the landlord. We made many trips but the pool was a little bit cold this time of the year. Because it was early in the season we had to eat a few times inside the house, but then you realise how much comfort the Villa gives! Sven, Anja and Anouck (april 3, 2017 until april 14, 2017)
What was wonderful place to be here. Tuesday booked last minute after an eventful week. The sun, the peace and the environment and have our children done very well. And what a delightful house, clean pool, fresh fruit on arrival and tasty (lie) beds! It was our first time to Crete, but we certainly hope again to come back. Rethymnon is very cozy. Tavernas nearby have great food and the children were also nice play with. Thanks for the good care and love,
Michel, Anne, Dante, Norah and Floris (October 12, 2016 until October 17, 2016)
Lovely house fully equipped. Enough privacy that is further enhanced by the closed area. Furniture stands very well. Because of its location in the olive grove you get when you sit outside again added that Greece feeling. The tall trees to make sure that no sun in early October after 5 hours more falls in the garden but after a day at the beach is no problem. The welcome pack in the fridge was much appreciated. Cottage is easily accessible by car and from Chania are you in 1:20. Recommended.
Theo and Ineke (September 30, 2016 until October 7, 2016)
Lovely quiet place and plenty to see in the neighborhood. The south coast with its beautiful beaches is easily accessible. Preveli is very touristy but Agia Fotini and Ligres are almost deserted. The drive to Chora Sfakion is spectacular. Despite the last week was a bit cold, we still update the last white spots. Thanks for the good reception and comprehensive welcome pack.
Jan and Marjan (September 22, 2016 until September 28, 2016)
Lemoni has an excellent price / quality ratio. The area is really rural and typically Greek. Yet within 10 minutes of drive to the coast for sun worshipers. But you can also swim in the private pool. The pre-information provision is pleasant and very complete. We will come back in any case again. If only for the peace, friendly animal sounds in the area, the beautiful Crete and an attractive, affordable location.
Rob and Marja (September 8, 2016 until September 22, 2016)
Crete is an amazing island. Fantastiko tavern is highly recommended because of the sunset. The manager Robert is also very friendly and gives lots of tips. The house is really top. For the guests after us, a lot of fun. (Translated from German)
Bernhard and Renate (August 31, 2016 until September 7, 2016)
It is over .. We also enjoyed this time in Villa Lemoni again. What a GREAT stay here! We made several trips and every day it feels “coming home". Lazing around and in the pool. Many thanks for everything and maybe goodbye.
Albert and Ans (August 22, 2016 until August 31, 2016)
What have we enjoyed this fine house, a lovely pool and what a view. The house is fully equipped: toaster, juicer and cheese slicer to mention something, but also very comfortable deck chairs and sun beds. We enjoyed many good restaurants nearby, Fantastiko, Kastro, Lemonikopos and Avli. Our daughter is going to dive in Petres Geraniou and the opposite tavern Proto Helidoni is very romantic. Also made nice trips in short, plenty to do. What a nice holiday and a shame we have to go home. Johnny, Saskia, Frederiek and Sophieke (July 16, 2016 until August 2, 2016)
Hi, my wife and I have had 11 wonderful days at Villa Lemoni. Everything that was previously described, we have found in the house. Clean, orderly, modern and quiet. You can enjoy a wonderful holiday with at least four people. I was particularly pleased to have the TV with foreign channels, as well as the German channels. Now I could enjoy the European Football Championships. The Internet is functioning smoothly. You can reach several shops, tavernas and beach with the car a short distance away. Also thanks for the pleasant and fast communication with the landlord. I can definitely recommend the villa and we love to come back.
Katharina & Sebastian (June 6, 2016 until June 16, 2016) translated from German
We all loved Villa Lemoni. A lovely quiet spot with all the facilities, also for the kids. What a top week in which we could relax together with grandma and yet were close to the other grandparents. Definitely worth a repeat !!
Thank you. Niels, Helen, Sven, Lena and Grandma (May 28, 2016 until June 6, 2016)
Very nicely furnished and equipped this property. Air conditioning, blinds, mosquito nets, dishwasher, washing machine, oven and if I could go on. Everything modern and well functioning. From the pool terrace you look over the olive trees next to the azure sea. The lies stools and umbrellas ready. Above the terrace there also depends a canvas for the hottest days. There is a local bakery for five minutes, Lidl 10 minutes and you stumble across traditional or tourist taverns nearby. The beach on the north you drive in 10 minutes. The beautiful tranquil bays can be found on the south side of the island and there you are within 45 minutes. We felt absolutely at home here in the spring.
Robert with Family (April 25, 2016 until May 6, 2016)
Very neat and clean accommodation with stunning views and a lovely pool!
This holiday is definitely worth it! The house is fully equiped, quiet and completely free.
For a wonderful holiday you are in this house to the right place.
Ben v D (5-10-2015 until 11-10-2015)
Two weeks we were allowed to stay at Villa Lemoni. It was delicious! Nice location, nice view, nice pool and bbq there! Nice surroundings and plenty to do! Everything you could want is in the Villa! Upon arrival there were even some things ready for us in the refrigerator; even a morsel for our 10 month old son was ready! Villa Lemoni is really a must!
Evert and Family (18-9-2015 until 02-10-2015)
A magical place. Back from spending ten days with two adult couples in the charming house, which is very well equipped and looks very neat. And what a beautiful location, ideal location to discover from here the beautiful Crete. Also thank to the owner for the extremely friendly way in which the exchange of questions and answers by email expires. We look forward to coming back here again.
Christian and friends (7-9-2015 until 17-9-2015) Translated from French
After three years, but is still paradise. Hints of the crises in Crete, but already on the first day of rain and storm, even the Greeks could not believe it. It’s nice that you one hour after the rain can light the barbecue weather, swimming and good food. This year made not a lot of trips, but much to the swimming pool and are already looking forward to next year. Hopefully then the tall tree at the farm next door or something so we pruned in late afternoon even longer to enjoy the sun. Meanwhile understood that the farmer has agreed to prune the tree still this year.
Sven, Anja and Anouck (15-8-2015 until 28-08-2015)
Excellent vacation, beautiful home and wonderful pool. For us as people over 50 was exactly what we needed. Calm, sun and ouzo. Beautiful excursions, good food and radiant sunshine. Top.
Siegfried and Rudi (18-7-2015 until 15-8-2015)
An oasis of calm for two weeks for the whole family. The villa is fully in line with the announcement: nicely decorated, very clean and very well equipped. Quiet location with beautiful sea views and close to all amenities and centrally located for excursions to discover the beauty of Crete. Also Robert, the manager, is very friendly and available for questions. If we can do is enjoy the question to the neighbour, the local farmer / shepherd whether he will prune the tree on his land so that you will be away from the evening sun around the pool one negative comment. Thanks to the team at Villa Lemoni who have gone to great lengths to make our holiday as pleasant as possible, we hope to come back soon!
Maryline with family (5-7-2015 until 18-7-2015) Translated from French
We had plenty of time, relaxing days alternating with exhausting trips. From here many trips through the mountains and little villages affected, including the Imbros return, Chania etc. There are around countless tavernas with great hospitality that make it a wonderful holiday. Every time we had the wonderful feeling of home in Lemoni, which is fully equipped. Also supporting Robert is worth a lot. Unexpectedly, we have also meet the owners, which was a real added value for us. In short three weeks are too short and full of regret going back home and already have plans to return to Crete. Thanks to all for a wonderful holiday.
Bert and Christel (7-6-2015 until 28-6-2015)
It was quite exciting arrival in the dark, but thanks to the great directions we drove right the first time. The arrival was very nice with some fruit, drink and beds. The next morning it was beautiful weather we have enjoyed delicious. Many trips made in the area and of course also layed on the starnd and enjoyed by the pool in the sun. Overall, really celebrated holidays and a wonderful introduction to Crete where the property certainly has helped. Thanks for all the good care.
Sandra, Bert, Lisanne and Jorien (28-4-2015 until 8-5-2015)
The villa is very neat and well-appointed and well located. It is a perfect place to rest, it’s quiet and it is also close to the main road, so it’s easy to get around on the island from here. We stayed there for two weeks and found it very pleasant.
Henry-Nicolas (31/08/2014 until 14/09/2014)
For the 2nd time in Villa Lemoni. Like last time everything neat, refrigerator stocked with some nice things and an inviting pool in the beautiful flowering garden. Very much use of the bbq and lived beyond 14 days. Many trips made on the island but especially enjoyed the pool and the rest outside. this year exuberant crickets in the olivetrees. Shame that Tavern Hovoli has been taken over by another owner, not as good as last year. Now tavern Fantastiko found with its magnificent views and beautiful sunsets. Unfortunately is over now and we have to go back home tomorrow. We can already start counting because just like last year, we have already decided that we come back next year. Thank you Ruud, Conny and Robert.
Sven, Anja and Anouck de Bakker (08/08/2014 until 22/08/2014)
Hello Ruud, What a lovely island, lovely people and what a GREAT stay at Villa Lemoni, a location where we felt right at home. Really everything was in place for a wonderful holiday. Of course we also made trips to the Arkadi Monastery, Rethymnon and Prevelistrand on the south coast. But we also have a lot of swimming and lazing by the pool here. Delicious with a book on the beach beds. A next vacation will be able to surpass it hard and we hope to come back here. Many thanks for everything.
Love Albert and Ans (01/08/2014 until 08/ 08/2014)
Hello Ruud, Fine house, beautifully decorated and design which exactly matches the description. Sea views from the pool. A must for those seeking tranquility. We had a very pleasant stay. Also thanks for the kindness and trustworthiness of the person who maintains the house (Mr Robert de Kok). Translated from the French
Philippe Sassin (24/07/2014 until 31/7/2014)
Dear Ruud and Conny, We want to thank you for the welcome card that you left for our family in Lemoni. The house is magnifique and very comfortable and cozy. We have taken care of everything. Due to the pleasant part of the pool we tarried settled there. In between we visited the main beaches on the west and south coast. In the sea at Rethymnon we went swimming and then walked on to Rethymnon and have been sitting on terraces. Overall a super successful holiday. It was the max !! Thanks again and sunny greetings
Johny, Mareen and Jolien De Schrijver (06/07/2014 until 20/7/2014)
On the last night anyway a thank you. We have enjoyed the beautiful Crete and your home over two weeks, we have made a lot of miles to see a lot of the beautiful island. All good things have already been mentioned and we also visited. Thanks again
John and Marleen Bouwhuis (17/6/2014 until 05/07/2014)
Villa Lemoni is fantastic! It has truly failed us nothing. Very tastefully decorated and fully equipped. It really struck us that everything has been thought of!
The directions to both the house and to the beaches and shopping knock flawlessly. We even followed the tips on restaurants and these are indeed a must! We come here very much once again!
Fam. Freriks (28/04/2014 unti 05/05/2014)
We enjoyed in your home and the beautiful surroundings. Renting a car is a must, Chania and Rethymno we found beautiful! We have also created a shortcut to the south, and saw many authentic villages, an experience. Nice also that, when we came, their was food and drinks for everyone. Thank you. A conversation with Robert we have experienced as very pleasant. Who knows, until next time!!!
Fam. De Ruiter (18/10/2013 until 25/10/2013)
In September we used 2 weeks in the villa for a comfortable holiday. The use of the villa is good and practical, both indoors and outdoors. Lovely pool there and a great view! We really enjoyed it and also fine if we had any questions or info wanted, we could go to Robert, the Dutch-speaking concierge, who regularly came along. In conclusion, this home is truly a must!
Fam. Drost (23/09/2013 until 06/10/2013)
Had a fantastic holiday villa in Lemoni. Villa was perfect in order when we arrived, refrigerator stocked with some fruit, some drinks and a bottle of wine which makes for a nice arrival. Beautiful garden, nice pool and a great barbecue. Pool they kept cleaning 2x a week. We really enjoyed it and look forward to our next stay.
Fam. De Bakker (9/08/2013 until 23/08/2013)
Nice house, nice environment that exudes peace and tranquility. Crickets, flowers, sun, sea, beach and pool. The friendly neighbor of the olive grove next to us asked if we were affected by the bleating lambs! From him we got to compensate, tomatoes and peppers! “for the salad” he said. Towards Hovoli for lunch we got from him also large bunches of grapes. Delicious they were. And then the local bakery with bread and cakes which are delicious. Overall a return Also Robert, kudos to you in word and deed. Your good care in and around the house were much appreciated.
Christa, Henk, Daani and “Grandma" Ank (22/07/2013 until 08/08/2013)
What a prime location and home. All kinds of trips planned, but once we arrived here we changed that soon. Lovely swim, read books, slept peacefully. Have gone to Fantastico repeatedly. Besides the view also fine food. The time has flown by and with a satisfied feeling tonight we equipped home.
Remco and Peter (14/07/2013 until 21/07/2013)
We spent a wonderful holiday in this nearly new house on. Very nice wake to the sound of crickets and small breakfast on the terrace by the pool. Near a bakery and small market. A car is highly recommended. We hope to return back (translated from French)
Fam Gille (29/06/2013 until 14/07/2013)
A house with all modern conveniences. Neat clean and maintained. Beautiful natural surroundings around you. Good restaurants nearby. It is advisable to rent a car and explore Crete . In the house is extensive documentation on Crete. This home is truly a must.
Annemiek and Wim (19/05/2013 until 26/05/2013)
Cottage is nicely decorated with good tools (kitchen), chairs and beds. Much better than in homes where we were earlier. Access road is bumpy but you get used quickly. Directions and other documentation also very well catered for. The sheep have become our friends, we went by yourself involved at different pitches to call “Bee". Eating at Zorbas is recommended, moreover, very friendly people everywhere. In short, highly recommended.
Joep (2/10/2012 until 09/10/2012)
Great vacation spent in Villa Lemoni. Lovely luxury home with all comforts. Beautiful location. Hiring a car is recommended to see something from the island. To be repeated
Albert and Karin (5/9/2012 until 12/09/2012)
The first acquaintance with Lemoni is great and there is absolutely nothing disappointing. Tastefully decorated, stock in the closet, cold beer and even TV. We have a lot of swimming, lying in the sun, towns visited, walking etc. Good tips in the booklet in the villa, but actually this is not necessary; everywhere is beautiful, relaxed and everything is possible. We enjoyed it.
Lia, Jans, Daan and Eve (11/8/2012 until 18/8/2012)
The holiday was great, but as always too short. Villa Lemoni was brilliant, worth repeating.
Claude (07/29/2012 until 09/08/2012)
From mid July to end of July 2012 we had a great time at Villa Lemoni. The house is fully equipped. It is peacefully situated just outside the village. The baker in the village is a must and the tavernas around the corner. There are still a few cottages, but there is plenty of privacy. Furthermore, there is nothing apart from olive trees and sheep. A must for those seeking tranquility. A car is an advantage because it is beautiful from here trips through the mountains to the south.
Johan, Nicole, Vonne and Roos (15/7/2012 until 29/7/2012)
A week in Crete with this cottage as a base .. Very nice! Every day swimming and/or cool off under the outdoor shower. Good food in Hovoli and trips made to the Meledoni cave, the Arkadi Monastery and the beautiful beach in Bali. The town of Rethymno with the beach and the fort is worth to visit. Well worth the road from the cottage up running prosecute. You will find pear, orange, olive, lemon and pomegranate trees and grapes and even a wild blackberry bush. All in all really enjoyed both the environment and the well-appointed luxury chalet. Thanks for a pleasant week in the cottage.
Hans, Gena, Vicky and Denise (03/07/2012 until 10/07/2012)
What a beautiful villa. We are really very entertained during our 12 day vacation! On the pictures you can see not all of the villa but once you are there it is even better / nicer! You have your own driveway (with gate) is actually a private property and privacy. Well we are very homesick for the villa and crete. Of course we want to come back as quickly as possible.
Regards Michelle & Roy (22/6/2012 until 3/7/2012)
Arrival in the night! With directions and navigation Villa Lemoni found quickly. In the morning pinched ourselves. Are we still dreaming? What a view, what a good smell of the flowers. A lovely cottage and delicacy. What we have enjoyed in the area, Arkadi Monastery, Spili fountain (great for children), Melidoni-cave (stalactite-cave) and the market in Rethymno. Great food in Fantastico (what a view) and delicious home barbeque. The bad news: We have to go home. The good news: We will be back. Thanks for a wonderful week.
Michel, Colinda and Sem (27/5/2012 until 3/6/2012)
The sheep in the pasture next to the villa … that made us decide, given our name, in order to book this villa. A perfect choice, fully furnished, great views and a good starting point for day trips begin. To the southeast, Agia Galini and through the gorge to Chora Sfakion for beautiful views. Also delicious swim in the sea and small mountain villages visited. At the end of the day relax by the pool before going to a restaurant. In short: Lemoni Villa has all the ingredients for the Swiss Life feeling. It was a wonderful week.
Rens and Klaasje Schaap (20/5/2012 until 27/5/2012)
The reception is good, fine wine in the fridge and various snacks and fruit are ready. Due to the late arrival the next morning until we see where we ended up, the shutters open and the sun and swimming towards us laughing. What a location, what peace, what a view, which is fantastic! Besides enjoying the house we have made several trips and visited restaurants and delicious barbeque. In short, enjoyed the accommodation, weather, people and food. And all thanks to the warden in the Netherlands who called us for 3 days in advance that our reserved tent was not ready. What we found that annoying, hihi!
Wilco, Kirsten, Jeroen and Bas (6/5/2012 until 13/5/2012 )
We have really enjoyed our stay in Villa Lemoni. What a wonderful place for a holiday. A luxurious house, next to nothing really grabs you! Towels and linen available, the pool filled, a welcome drink and snack and throughout the hole week sun, who would not want that? Centrally located on Crete. It is convenient to rent a car. Nearby are nice villages to watch and a beautiful environment. We have one day been out with a guide (see the link on the site of Villa Lemoni). This is definitely a must, nice places seen, lovely food and walked the Imbros. All together we four have a great time.
Greetings Saco, Karin, Jordy and Timo (27/4/2012 until 4/5/2012).
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Lemoni. Compliments to the beautifully finished home with comfort and good design. Extensive use of the terrace and pool and BBQ. Also wonderful for privacy.
Mildred and Jean Paul (25/8/2011 until 01/09/2011)
Lemoni Villa is a beautiful new villa with private pool. The house is nicely furnished with all the necessary equipment. The pool is regularly cleaned and maintained. The house is quietly located just outside the village, approximately 6km from the beach. For those who would not stay in the house all day, we recommend a scooter or car to make some trips.
In the house you will find a smart folder in which various opinions have been left out on the sights, restaurants and shops nearby. Definitely worth the browsing and some recommendations to follow.
For those who want to enjoy or relax in a quiet area on its own private pool, or want to enjoy nature and culture, this house is definitely recommended. We enjoyed it and will definitely go back.
René, Mieke and kids (1/8/2011 until 14/8/2011)
Lovely detached house with all amenities! Including airconditioning and private pool. Privacy and tranquility at its best. Centrally located in Crete. Great city and sea are accessible by local bus. Approx. 20 min drive. Car is highly recommended for tours on the island. Delicious bakery and restaurant within walking distance. The house is brand new and is well maintained by a very nice Dutch speaking concierge. He is also an ideal source of information and possible guide. For us, hear and spread the word!
Imke and Peter Hans (17/07/2011 until 31/07/2011)
