LOCATION, VILLA, VIEW AND MUCH MORE IS PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine dans la villa. Celle-ci est situé sur un promontoire à environ 600 mètres d'altitude. Les plages sont environ à 5 km de la villa (10-15 minutes d'auto).

La vue sur la mer de la terrasse est fantastique. Tous les équipements fonctionnaient bien (air climatisé, piscine, cuisine...) seulement la télévision n'était pas complètement fonctionnelle.. (on a pas réussi à la faire fonctionner).

Kefalas est un très petit village. Les routes sont étroites. La taverne du village est très sympathique.

We enjoyed our stay in Villa Boreas. Everything is like the advertising, beautiful!

Thank you.

A CRETAN GEM

  • 5 out of 5
The villa has a very nice kitchen/sitting area that makes the stay very comfortable. There are enough beds to easily sleep 8.

The location is perfect for exploring all of western Crete. A short drive down out of the winding hillside gets you on the National Road within minutes. Once on the National Road, you can be anywhere in the west of Crete within a few hours. So many places to visit, so little time.

The Villa has a great terrace for evening sitting. The pool is wonderful after a day of sightseeing. There is enough room available that an extended party can spread out and not be in each others way.
If you have the time, ( you will definetely want to spend more than a few days), and an auto, this is a great location, a wonderful villa, and a charming base for exploring.

We showed pictures to our friends and family and they are now interested in staying at the villa. That is a true test of good tourism. If your relatives wish to follow and stay in the same place, it must be a very good location.

This is a definite high praise recommendation for a future stay at this villa.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN A QUIET VILLAGE. GREAT SEA VIE.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the villa in the 2nd half of June. 2 families with kids aged between 7 and 13. The layout of the villa is very practical with bedrooms on the ground floor seperated from the living area upstairs. The villa is well built, lots of nice details in the interior. Decent quality furniture. Great, large terrace with beautiful views. The cleaning team arrived every 4th day. They focused on the bedrooms and the bathroom. We had to do the cleaning ourselves upstairs during the 2 weeks. Kefalas is a 10 min walk. There are 3 restaurants and 2 shops. We tried 2 of the restaurants, both of them had good Cretan food at great value and very friendly staff. We rented 2 cars and travelled to lots of places on the island. We had a great holiday.

AN EXCELLENT VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
We want to thank you for the excellent villa we were able to hire from you. Everything in villa Boreas was in top condition. We really did not miss anything. Our compliments for the service and all the things that was
thought about: the DVD films, CD's, barbeque, the bottle of wine in the fridge, the tourist information, etc. We will really recommend your house to relatives and friends who want to visit Crete. The relaxing atmosphere, the unbelievable view over the Mediterranean Sea and the fact that you only hear birds and nothing else is breathtaking. We visited a lot of places such as, Knossos, Aptera, the
Samaria Gorge, the city Chania. Everything was as you described in the ad. Our rating is a "full 10"

EXCELLENT VILLA WITH GREAT POOL AND VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
All we can say is absolutely marvellous. Brilliant location, nice surroundings and great view. Our family of 3, 2 adaults and one teen, stayed for 2 weeks in August at this great villa .
Everything was as described. The communication in advance was very good.
The Villa is very well equipped and maintained not to mention spotlessly clean. The Service is top, starting from a welcome package witch was highly welcomed by us, as we arrived nearly midnight till the regularly clean up every 3-4 days. Service is always in a short reach although we didn't need to call.
At the villa you can find a big collection of cd's and dvd's and games for the kids and also some nice beach toys.

The village Kefalas has 2 small supermarkets where you can buy most of the items you need and a very good taverna. Almirida, Chania and Vamos are worth to visit and have very good restaurants and tavernas.
We loved to make a barbeque several times as the atmosphere at the villa at night is perfect for that and there is a very good english butcher in Vamos where you can buy exceptional meat.

We really enjoyed the pool and the beaches nearbuy and the relaxed atmosphere in this area of Crete.

By the way, a car is neccesary.

We would hope to return next summer if possible.

Thank you Dave for this great holidays.

Cheers,
Ulf from Germany
