Our host has been in touch with us for the whole stay in Crete with many suggestions of place to visit and possible tours to undertake. The house is suggestive, with a couple of animals in the garden (we particularly liked the donkey!!) in the middle of an old tiny Byzantine village not too far from either Rethymno and Eraklion. We really enjoyed our time there.
My 22 y.o. daughter and I stayed in Vivian's cottage for 2 weeks in July 2017. Vivian's cottage is located 6km from the edge of Rethymnon and about 8 km from the city center/old town. We picked up this location by several reasons: 1. We could have more spacious property for the same price comparing to in-town location. 2. We are sentive to noise in touristic places at nights so preferred quietness and relaxation of the countryside. 3. We wanted to have a real "local" experience in an authentic Greek place. 4. Most of the attractions and the best beaches of Rethymnon and some of Chania areas are easily accessible from this spot (within 30-100km you have enourmous amount of the places worth visiting). We are completely satisfied with what we actually got with this property. Fresh air, green quiet environment, nice views to the garden and the valley. The village is extremely picturesque with its old medieval buildings on the green slopes of the gorge. The gate to the cottage is right on the medieval church yard paved with old stones, so we felt like in a time machine. Meanwhile, the house is very comfortable and equipped with all the modern appliances you may need: full-size fridge, stove, cooktop, kettle, toaster, washmashine, big flat screen TV, perfect Wi-Fi connection. The interiors are nicely decorated and cozy: the kitchen/living room is very large, the bedrooms have large wardrobes and comfortable matresses. However we preferred to stay on the spacious and sunny terrace surrounded by flowering plants, enjoying the view and watching the goats and the donkey grazing down in the garden. Our host George is a very friendly and cultured person, speaking perfect English. He was very helpful during the whole period of our stay: we had our plane delayed and he waited for us on the road at 1 a.m; gave many useful tips regarding parking, beaches etc. George was there offering assistance when we had a minor accident with my daughter in town; also he did not mind our late check-out (the house was not booked for the night of our departure). Definitely you would need a car if you choose to stay in Vivian's cottage (takes 10-12 min to drive to the town center/beach). It was a benefit for us because we visited many beautiful places around: north coast beaches from Chania to Bali, Patsos gorge, Preveli monastery, Platanias and some beaches of the south coast, Kournas lake, Argiroupoli with its cool springs and great taverns, small old villages in mountains etc etc. Prassano gorge is close to the village for those who like some hiking. There is a family tavern in 50 metres from the house with homemade food and funny prices. All in all it was a great vacation and a great accomodation.
