We arrived late evening and Martin the villa manager was waiting for us at local petrol station to guide us to villa as it is slightly tucked away up a hillside, welcome pack awaited us so didn't have to worry about supplies straight away, fantastic cold beers and wine meant we could start enjoying ourselves from the offset!!. Villa is situated just outside Agios Nikolaos, perfect views of the bay, town and mountains, a few villas scattered around us but very peaceful. Pool was fantastic great size for us and 3 sons 20, 18 and 16, plenty of space for us all, had breakfast on upper terrace every morning. Night sky was amazing for star gazing lying on the sun loungers after evening out in Ag/Nik where we found some wonderful restuarants our two fav were Amalthea great food with lovely friendly service over looking the sea and just next door for more traditional cuisine Chrisofyllis, last evening we went to Pelagos a slightly pricier menu, beautiful setting but we felt food and service wasn't any better than other cheaper restuarants. We also loved to sit and people watch in the bars on the tree lined streets that lead down to the harbour. Another great little bar with good food and exceptional value for money was the Galley bar just 5 mins drive near Haviana beach $48 for a meal for 5!!
Wonderful beaches all around from local Haviana great, our favourite in Ag/Nik was Almiros. Also off the beaten track was a little beach in Elounda great little cove wonderful snorkelling!
Martin the property manager was always on hand with any problems we came across a couple of issues with toilets and cooker, but this didn't spoil our holiday, and we found the best shower to use was the one in the annexe.
It was quite windy and blustery at times but this helped in keeping temp bearable so wasn't really a problem for us.
The villa was very clean and had a lovely homely feel which was very welcoming and we wouldn't hesitate on recommending it.
Car needed but sat nav never used!! Roads very easy to navigate.
