We stayed in Villa Asteri last summer and it was absolutely amazing. Beautiful villa, wonderful big pool and a brilliant location, near restaurants, shops and the beach. Esther was just brilliant, happily arranging catering for us and always on hand for restaurant and outing suggestions, and eager to make us happy in any way - a lovely lady. We would definitely go back and I can thoroughly recommend Villa Asteri.

This place is awesome. It has a heap of facilities you wouldn't expect in a place like this. There was a coffee machine, a juicer, plenty of crockery and utensils. The pool was awesome and massive. It is an expensive place BUT if you have 10 or more people it is worth it. It's a 15 minute walk to the beach and about a 5-10 minute drive to get into town. Esther was absolutely amazing. On our second day she came and sat down with us and gave us a really detailed run down on Crete and Chania and gave us some amazing suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Not only did she provide an awesome place her suggestions where on point. Ask her about Chrisostomos. It's this amazing restaurant she recommended that bake their own bread.

The only real problem was that the wi-fi was a bit flaky especially if you were staying in the lower part of the house. But who cares. Get off the internet and see the town. Also the hot water went out briefly but apparently this is because it is solar powered. Which kinda makes it awesome because you're staying in an environmentally friendly house. Oh and there are pomegranate trees, orange trees and olive trees in the backyard. All in all, a great place and would definitely stay here again.

“Great holiday with extended family”
Reviewed 29 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Villa Asteria was perfect for a big group like ours, with small children and many adults, in a total of 15 people. The two stairs provided privacy, with different doors, and the garden was big enough for all of us.

A special thank to Esther and her husband for all their help and for taking so good care of us. They helped us to book tickets for the Samaria walk and recommended good spots to visit in Chania. In addtion to all this, Esther brought us a beautiful birthday cake for our 60th birthday.
