Thanks Audrey and your team for making our holiday a great experience this year. From the first contact of booking, the selection of the right house in the environment we were looking for, till the goodbye wave on the last Saturday, everything your company could do to make our vacation great was perfect. Immediate support if something wasn't working, advice for the best restaurants, even where to park the car best, where to go for biking tours, you want a massage next to the pool, you name it...Audrey had the best advice. Property is in a good condition, clean and well maintained during our stay. Location on walking distance from cosy and authentic Sisi is very convenient.
Just fantastic hospitality on a very high and personal level. Perhaps you can find something cheaper, but better will be difficult on this marvelous and friendly island. Hope to see you again! Marcel & Anne Marie

We had a wonderful stay in Villa Athena with the highlight being our wedding day in the most beautiful of settings with the glorious mountain backdrop – we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Audrey and the Luxury Villas on Crete team could not do enough to ensure everything went smoothly and the slightest problems ironed out quickly. We had friends and family staying in the surrounding villas which made things especially easy as everyone was close by. An extra mention must go to the gardener/maintenance man who went above and beyond to make sure everywhere outside was perfect for our special day, and quickly cleared up afterwards. We have some amazing memories to take away.

This is a lovely place located in a cluster of three modern villas a few minutes outside of the town of Sisi. The listing accurately describes the space and amenities. It is spacious, clean, and a great home base for staying with a group of friends and exploring Crete. We had a number of complications with the house while we were there, including a medical emergency of one of our group. Audrey and her staff always came immediately and were helpful in making sure that somebody was around to help with communication if needed.
Sisi and all of its restaurants and shops are wonderful, but a little bit of a walk. Also, it was helpful to rent a car to be able to explore further on our own, although I suggest getting the smallest vehicle you can tolerate. That being said, this villa is an excellent place to stay. It is very well managed, and Audrey's team has great suggestions for how to enjoy Crete. Here recommendations for a private chef and boating expedition were great experiences.

It was a great holiday on a great accomodation, we stay at Villa Athena. My compliments for Audrey, she was very friendly and helpfull , thanks for the baby toys, you bring on the second day. Also the car service was very good. They pick us up on the airport, the cars were on the accomodation and they bring us back on the last day with mini vans for the luggage. We also had a night with a chef, they cook in the villa a delicious greek dinner.
Thanks a lot for everything.

Audrey and the Luxury villas team.
Just want to thank you again for a perfect stay at the Villa Athena, you never fail to amaze us. Everything from Airport transfers to stocking the fridge and sorting the hire cars was perfect. Villa was amazing just how we remembered it. We know when we book we have nothing to worry about you take care of everything.
Thanks again for a hassle free relaxing stay.

We had an incredibly beautiful holiday at Villa Athena. Everything was very well arranged by Audrey and her team. We arrived in the villa after 10 pm and, at our request, basic shopping had already been done. The villa is within walking distance of the beach and town. We have greatly enjoyed and will definitely return to Villa Athena.

We had a fabulous time at Villa Athena. The accommodation was very good and the attention to detail with the pool cleaning and general maintenance was excellent. The Villa was a short walk to the beautiful Town of Sissi, which was very unspoilt, traditional and idyllic. Great restaurants and Tavernas with the locals very hospitable and the added reassurance that you were made to feel welcome wherever you went..
Considering there was a party of 10 of us staying we had a very relaxing holiday made easier by the easy approach and organisation of Luxury Villas On Crete.
We would recommend very highly.

We have a fantastic time at villa Athena. We pick up at the airport with a taxi that was arranged by Audrey.
The villa was very beautiful, and everything was well organized. The village Sision is also very nice. You have a lot of beautiful places and restaurants. We recommend the villa Athena, maybe we come back at this wonderful place.
- Mr Hoogenboom - July 2018 -
I honestly can't recommend them highly enough. Initially recommended to me by a friend that stayed with them last year, we booked two large villas to accommodate a large group of us.
The properties are fantastic and very well maintained, and the service from the first enquiry until we left the property was truly second to none.
Superb recommendations for things to do, places to eat, outside caterers to use etc and such friendly and attentive service from the whole team.
There were 23 of us, all had a wonderful holiday thanks to them.

We booked Villa Athena for my 40th Birthday celebrations with family and friends and it lived up to all expectations and more.
From the booking the Luxuryvillasoncrete team were every so helpful, offering early check in from 10:00 and late check to suit our needs, due to no other occupancy immediately before and after our stay.
The pictures of the villa on the website do not do it justice, the place is large and spacious with all modern conveniences needed to be a home from home. Lots of different seating areas to escape one and other if wanted. All rooms air-conditioned to escape the extreme temperatures we had when we holidayed.
The outside pool , bbq and bar area were another highlight, many a night spent enjoying the evening heat. Gardener also came regularly and cleaned the BBQ - added bonus.
The lovely port town of Sisy was a 10 minute walk, enough bars and restaurants to keep it peaceful but enough to eat somewhere different each time we dined out. 2 supermarkets also with all necessitys. Larger one in Malia with a Fishmonger next door.
Should we visit Crete again any time we will definitely be using Luxuryvillasoncrete

Beautiful villa with easy walk to town.
We went for a 50th birthday celebration with the family and absolutely loved it. The outside bar proved to be my favourite feature and such fun.
We did go in the pool but it was cold at this time of year as expected even though the outside temperature was still quite warm.
The upstairs bedroom door handle broke as the door was difficult to close but they were aware of this and didn't charge us. I assume this will be fixed for next visitors.
Eva was really helpful throughout the stay and let us stay longer on the day of departure as the villa was to be empty the following week which was greatly appreciated.
All mod cons in the kitchen and plenty of space and room in the large fridge.

We have just arrived back from a fabulous weeks holiday in the beautiful Villa Athena, the location of the villa is perfect for strolling into the beautiful village of Sissi. The Villa is spotless and has absolutely everything you need for you to feel at home. We were welcomed at the Villa by Audrey, who really does go above and beyond in ensuring your stay in Crete is a memorable one!! She told us the best places to eat and drink, helped us plan trips, she even organised for the most special Taverna on Crete (in my opinion) to open up for us, even though it was closed, they opened up just for us and we had the most amazing time!! Audrey and her staff cannot do enough for you, from the moment you book to the moment you leave, we loved it that much we have already booked again for October, The Hodgkinsons xxx

We had a great holiday! The villa exceeded our expectations (the photos just don't do it justice) and you really have thought of everything. Added extras such as the BBQ being cleaning for us after each use, just added to the already first class service we experienced. The location of the villa is perfect too and we loved that we only had a short walk into the beautiful town of Sisi with its good selection of restaurants and bars. Thanks too for being the perfect host. We'll definitely be back......!

I could not recommend 'Luxury villas on Crete' enough! The villa itself is absolutely stunning- even the pictures on this website don't really do it justice! First and foremost, the mountain views from the villa are simply breathtaking - particularly at dusk, the location makes for some remarkable panoramas. The poolside area is fantastic, featuring a large bar and outdoor fridge, and the sun loungers are particularly comfortable! There are also parasols providing ample shade for those who want it. Inside, the villa is beautifully decorated and the equipment all modern and spotless. All bedrooms have air-conditioning, there is huge amount of cupboard space, and the bathrooms are spotless.
Throughout, Audrey was the perfect host. Upon our arrival at the villa, she warmly greeted us and recommended activities, taxis and restaurants in the local area. One night, there was a leak in the kitchen fridge and within 5 minutes of our reporting it to Audrey one of her colleagues had arrived and fixed the problem. Our departure day was also a changeover day, and our flight was late at night - Audrey was, however, amazingly helpful in allowing us use of the facilities of another villa during the day; a kindness without which we would have been stuck, so we can't even begin to express our gratitude to Audrey.
As regards location, the villa is only a 10 minute walk from the fishing village of Sissi, where there are supermarkets, car rental/quad bike hire shops, and boutique restaurants dotted around the harbour. There is also a beautiful, private beach a further 15 minutes away on foot. We spent our last few nights in the harbour, and the quiet picturesque surroundings coupled with the views of the sunset over the sea really put the perfect end to a most fantastic holiday - and all credit to Audrey and the 'Luxury villas on Crete' team!

One of the most amazing relaxing holidays with our three young boys!!!
From start to finish. Athena is a true gem if you are lucky enough to stay there. We loved every moment of our 13 night stay and already thinking about returning!! The views from the terrace are breathtaking and so peaceful. The pool and outdoor space is wonderful. The villa is extremely spacious and decorated beautifully, with lots of little extras. Upon arrival, Audrey met us at the villa and showed us around. Please take her advice on all restaurants, she is a book of knowledge on the surrounding areas. We went one night to a restaurant off her list and we regretted it!! No request was too big or small for her or her team. She really runs a tight ship and we could'nt recommend "luxury villas on Crete"enough.
Definitely a family that will be returning........

Incredible stay made very special by Villa Athena!
A wonderful, spacious villa that didn't disappoint in any shape or form. So many areas to sit and relax made every day and evening unique and special. If you weren't chilling by the pool then you could be by the bar having a drink or relaxing reading a book on one of the many balconies. The villa is situated perfectly from Sissi which was a few minutes drive away and had some fantastic restaurants. Big thank you to Audrey who was there on our arrival and then met with us the next day to give us a debrief on the area, things to do, places to see, where to eat etc. She was always available on the phone as well so any queries we had were answered instantaneously. So sad not to still be at Athena but hopefully see you next year ! Yamas
