Our 2 week stay at Villa Aquarius in Sissi was truly wonderful and our family and friends felt grateful to be here.
The villa is light and airy and has great open spaces and views of the ocean, and the decor & amenities were a bonus!
The GARDEN…. Aaaaah!
We made meals almost everyday from the tomatoes, beets, figs, peppers, oregano etc… plus fresh eggs from the chicken coop.
The pool is beautiful and very clean/ NOT over chlorinated. We enjoyed it ever single day.
The village of Sissi is mountainous an filled with endless olive tree groves and the sound of cicadas. We ate wonderful authentic Greek meals at the Geraki taverna up the street, and swam at Boufos beach close by.
AUDREY was our go to person whenever we had questions or needed help… like finding where to get a Covid test nearby.
Audrey had a car lined up for us & waiting at the villa AND transportation from the airport, which was great after a exhausting day of travel..
She also gave us recommendations for restaurants/ tours & where to find live bazouki music.
I also have to mention Maria because she helped us as well!
THANK YOU! She was quick to answer our emails when things came up last minute.
One night we wanted a dinner party outside on the spacious patio & Audrey helped us hire chef Yianni. He and his sister came & set the table and cooked us an delicious meal. For dessert we had some of the best loukamades ever.
I can’t fit in everything and this is already a long review but this is truly a special place & we will always remember our stay at VILLA AQUARIUS.

We had a lovely stay at Aquarius, having been delayed from 2020 and dealing with the many Covid related hurdles to actually leave the UK the villa was a welcome sight. Even with a large group of adults it comfortably accommodated everyone with plenty of sun loungers, a great dining table on the terrace. rooms and bathrooms. The bar area was a fantastic additional space especially for pre-dinner drinks and late night fun. The team were really responsive assisting with multiple taxi logistics and trips, restaurant recommendations and helping to sort out the inevitable hiccups along the way. Excellent water pressure, well appointed bathrooms and kitchen, great wifi. We had additional cleaning which was a good send with so many of us which was excellent and unobtrusive. An amazing chef night which was excellent value for a huge amount of fabulous food.
The villa is secluded but a walk into Sissi which makes it super accessible but with fab views along the way
I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Aquarius or use the Luxury Villas team again

We had a fantastic holiday, even the weather was nice.
Villa Aquarius was so nice, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, livingroom was perfect for our family. We was 12 persons and there was lot of space for everybody.
We had breakfast on the veranda every day, with this fantastic view!
The pool was also very nice, the small kids was swimming and playing all day.
We used the nice bar/outside kitchen in the evening, grilling and had nice drinks. This outside fireplace, we used 3 times, and was spectacular late at night .In the garden we could pic flavours and even eggs from the hen garden!!
We will absolutely choose Villa Aquarius next time!

From the moment we were picked up from the airport and delivered (by arrangement) to the Villa Aquarius we were in heaven. The 8 nights at the villa lived up to our expectations - and then some!
The villa is well organised, neat and clean and situated in a "picture postcard" private oasis of olive trees. The interiors are modern and luxurious and well suited to a villa near the beach. Audrey had also organised 2 cars that were waiting at the villa on our arrival and we were ready to explore once we settled in.
The outdoor areas at Villa Aquarius are superb and the pool and outdoor bar area became our meeting point for our group of 7 adults - particularly at sunset when the villa and pool area was bathed in glorious golden light each evening.
The local town was a great place to explore with plenty of bars and restaurants to try - all of them were of a high standard and very reasonably priced. The local supermarkets had all we needed to ensure we could cook our breakfast each morning.
An added bonus was that the attached veggie garden and chicken coop meant we very rarely had to buy eggs or herbs! So amazing to have fresh eggs every day!
All in all, we loved the villa and highly recommend it for families and friends. The local town of Sisi is quiet yet quaint and the local beach bar was fun to hang out at.
An amazing, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable holiday! We'd love to come back!

We stayed at villa Aquarius 8-15th August 2018. From the outset the communication and attention to detail from Audrey and the team was outstanding. We asked numerous questions and needed lots of support with transfers and hire cars as we were a big group arriving at different times. Audrey’s response was quick and very helpful. The villa itself was no disappointment, home from home really. The decor was of a very high standard with air conditioning controls in each room, netflicks and a very well equipped kitchen.
It was a superb stay and we have all come home thoroughly refreshed.

We had an amazing holiday at villa Aquarius . The villa is extremely well equipped throughout , absolutely everything you could want or need is there. Our favourite part of the villa is the outdoor terrace , where you can take in the fabulous views , plus all enjoy a meal together made from the fresh garden produce, and delicious hens eggs . The villa olive oil was the best we have ever tasted .
Audrey and her team were extremely helpful , before we arrived and during our stay. We tried every one of the restaurants recommended and they were all excellent . We will definitely be going back to Crete and will book with Audrey again .
Thanks for everything The farrell families

We recently had the pleasure of a weeks stay at Villa Aquarius which is close to the town of Sisi and its picturesque harbour.
The villa is set amongst and olive grove and we were in for a surprise a lovely vegetable garden for our use and every day there were courgettes, spring onions, cucumbers, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, herbs to be had for the picking and the added bonus was a chook house where every day we harvested around 9 eggs. The villa had five bedrooms all with bathrooms,an excellent kitchen, a large living/ dining area and a covered outdoor dinning area with a ten seater table overlooking a lovely pool. At. The end of the pool was the barbeque area complete with fridges and sinks and this is where we spent a lot of time.
Our villa hostess Audrey somewhat made our stay just that little bit better nothing was any trouble to her and we had a couple of instances where we needed her help and she bent over backwards to accomodate us. She also has a very good knowledge of the area (in fact Crete). All in all a truly wonderful stay and we can truly recommend it to those who want a relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings.

We had a fantastic time in Villa Aquarius. There was plenty of living & sleeping space for 10 adults and 4 toddlers and the villa was exceptionally well equipped both in the kitchen and outside area. Audrey couldn't have been more helpful, providing high chairs and good quality travel cots together with organising our hire cars with all the necessary baby seats.The bar, bbq and pool area were well used and we saw some magnificent sunsets sitting out in the evenings. The little ones loved our daily walk down to feed the chickens and look for eggs. We also helped ourselves to some lovely fresh produce from the garden to make salads; including tomatoes, aubergines, peppers and onions. We all had a fantastic time and would recommend Villa Aquarius for big family or friends gatherings.
- Family Cooper, August 2017 -
Villa Aquarius is a fabulous villa. The highlight for us were the views – the sunset over the sea, the mountains behind and the silhouette of Sisi in the distance. Audrey was very helpful and efficient. Her recommendations in the guidebook were excellent.
We would very much recommend the villa and travel company.

Our recent stay with Luxury Villas on Crete at Villa Aquarius near Sisi can only be described as immaculate, seamless, breath-taking, and idyllic - from the moment we arrived until the last few minutes before our flight home took off.
We have been vacationing in villas since 2003 with most of our time between Italy, Spain, Greece, and France. We have seen what villa vacations have grown to be, but nothing prepared us for our amazing time in Crete.
Luxury Villas on Crete was a gem amidst a sea of rental agencies, which were more numerous than usual given it was Crete, a more popular destination it seems. Audrey and Eva, from the first email, were a fantastic source of options and ideas for our trip to Crete. They were always timely, thorough, and absolutely complete in managing every detail of the booking. Audrey had the depth and resourcefulness to book us or to connect us with everything from the rental car (best experience we’ve had with a rental car company and at an excellent rate) to a private sailing yacht tour of Dia. She truly takes luxury to heart and was attentive during our entire stay in Sisi.
Now, the real highlight of the stay was the immaculate villa! This was by far the most beautiful and complete villa we have ever had the opportunity to stay at. The villa was brand new, and we were the first guests. As two families of 4 with children ages 5 to 8, we needed space, integrated services, and a beautiful pool. This villa had all this and more.
The villa’s setting was a huge gated area with a list of amenities: covered car park, grassed play area, large heated infinity pool, complete bar/BBQ area, outdoor eating area, full stone fire pit for evening retreats, and orchard, and finally its own custom chicken coop at the bottom of the garden that was the children’s favourite spot to head to every morning to check for eggs for their breakfast. The villa was tastefully decorated in a modern and fresh style with clean lines and a balanced integration of what is truly Cretan and what is luxury villa. The interior was absolutely amazing with fully appointed bedrooms (beds were excellent), comfortable common rooms, and simply flawless bathrooms. The kitchen was exceptional with all the modern tools and equipment that I can even admit that I don't have at home. Essentially, the interior of the villa integrated every detail that makes a stay complete and fully modern - without compromise. In addition, the exterior dealt with the emerging offerings expected of luxury stays - the infinity pool, the exceptional grounds, the integrated eating spaces, and added the emerging components of organic and local produce grown on site.
We sampled so many things as a family, the beach within walking distance, the in-villa meal preparation by the Cretan Miracle (exceptional and the subject of a separate review), the brilliant tourist attractions, and even the day sail to Dia. There was nothing left to chance or not perfectly organized.
Audrey's service coupled with what can only be described as setting the bar for luxury villa offerings in Villa Aquarius made for a holiday that we will never forget - and a first that we will return to in the years to come.
As a small footnote, the children were so taken by the chance to have a pool that was safe, warm and welcoming, an adventure through the orchard every morning to see how many eggs they could find, and finally the evening chance for a bit of Netflix in their beds that they have asked not if but when we will be back. Simply put the villa was perfect!

Perfect ! I celebrated a "big" birthday here and brought the whole family (12 adults). The villa was perfect for this. Very spacious, new, clean, fresh and modern. Every facility available. Better WiFi than in England! All bedrooms of high standard--quite often the 5th or 6th bedroom is not as good (e.g. bunk beds for children) but not here--there were no fights over the rooms as all equally nice and comfortable.The heated pool made a difference and it was nice to collect the eggs from the hens.The service was great. Audrey made it so easy. Nothing too much trouble and such a lovely person ! Met at the airport, guided right to the door of the villa , shown around. Taxis organised for us. All the restaurant suggestions were perfect too.Even if we do not return to this particular villa , will certainly want to get Audrey and her team to arrange the next one for us ! Eva and Maria in the office were great too! Very grateful !

We had an amazing vacation. We thank Mrs. Audrey Thomassen for the warm welcome, brilliant advice and for making sure we experienced the relaxing atmosphere that brought us to Crete in the first place. Villa Aquarius lived up to our high expectations and ticked all the right boxes for us. The heated swimming pool, modern furniture, isolated location, and high tech features, give the Villa a luxurious yet family-friendly feel about it. Overall, a wonderful stay - highly recommended!

My siblings and I decided to take a family vacation to Greece. There were 10 of us in total, ages 23+. It isn't easy to find a place big enough to house that many people under one roof. Luckily, we came across this website and were able to find the villa of our dreams! Centrally located and beautifully appointed, it fit our needs perfectly. Some days we all did things together, other days we each went our separate ways. We always managed to reconnect in the evenings either in the pool or around the fire pit! Audrey and Sebastian recommended some great restaurants and attractions. I look forward to our next visit to Crete!
