Velani Country Hotel - Crete

Sun and Riding

5 star rating   30 June 2022

Fiona who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Fabulous trip | I loved everything at Velani.
The people, the riding, the horses, the food, accommodation and the scenery.
I will definitely go back there as it was just the right combination I was looking for.
Vladimir and Giulia were very helpful and did their best to keep all riders happy.
Sabine is a very astute horsewoman and has a very good knowledge of horses and their suitability for the riding at Velani.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Manolis and his kitchen team produce excellent and delicious food. It was too good really!!
I would have liked more fish on the menu but as we were in the mountains it is more difficult to source than a coastal resort. It was not an issue at all.
Nikos was a fabulous waiter, host and entertainment!
I miss them all already x

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

There was a slight issue with the paperwork arriving but I had everything on email as back up.
I noticed in time and another set of documents was posted out immediately.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

I enjoy dealing with In the Saddle as they listen and really try to find the right holiday to suit your needs.
I will use them again for sure.
Thank you so much Claire.
