Client Reviews for Spitaki


The holiday was great, the villa was very cute. The welcome pack was amazing. We did ask if it was possible to have a full length mirror or at least a portable mirror to use when drying hair. This request has been made in the visitors book several times over the last couple of years. It would be very helpful for future guests I am sure. Great advice from the office re the hiring of a car, it really was needed. Lovely holiday, Thank you Caroline

By far the best accommodation we have stayed in. Private and beautiful.

Spitaki really is unique. In the centre of a small village with few inhabitants, the property is totally secure, private and secluded but not isolated. It would be ideal for anyone wanting to get an overall tan! The locals are very friendly and the nearby mini market meets most needs. Vamos is just a few minutes drive away for tavernas, cafes and shops, plus Jon the English Butcher (excellent). The old cities of Chania and Rethymnon are about 45 mins drive away and well worth visiting. Nearby Almyrida (15 mins) is an excellent small seaside village with a good and safe sandy beach for families. Vintage Travel was recommended by our daughter who used them for Umbria last year. We were not disappointed. The overall service was outstanding. The attention to detail was more than we needed but would be very helpful for less experienced independent travellers. The local rep was highly conscientious - we much appreciated his advice on the best route into Chania and parking there. We are sure that Vintage Travel will be our first call next time we want self-catered accommodation abroad. Thank you everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Spitaki and we were very lucky with the weather! Everything worked very smoothly and we loved the location. John couldn't have been more helpful and we were very impressed with everything.

The holiday was excellent. We were blessed with good weather and the Western part of Crete was interesting. Villa excellent as was the assistance and guidance given by Vintage travel representative John. Highly recommended.

John - our representative was very helpful and provided excellent directions to the villa. Having a linen refresh mid-week was an added bonus - pity it rained!!

Well we have had an excellent time. With a 3 month old baby our holidays need to adapt now and hence Spitaki was an excellent option. We are so tempted to go back but then equally tempting is the option to explore more. Our area rep was there to see us but we were away. He kept us informed about all the proceedings and valuable info. Sarah was prompt on the emails to help us out...event sent me the GPS co-ordinates for the house which was quite useful to look it up on street view. Thanks to everyone for making our holiday enjoyable, Thanks, Aban

Spitaki exceeded our expectations. Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Very peaceful but close by to amenities in Vamos - excellent restaurants - and to town of Chania. Would love to return some day!

Again a most enjoyable holiday with Vintage Travel. First time renting a villa/house in a village location, and the first time travelling to Crete. Excellent location, to both beaches, and for touring the western part of the island. There is no negative comment we can make about the friendliness of the people, the food, the villa or the weather, everything was perfect. Will definitely consider a further holiday in Crete.
