Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We had a perfect 2 weeks staying at this fantastic villa. The villa was just as pictured, lovely views and surrounding garden area, all very well maintained and super clean. The neighbour was acting as 'caretaker' and was very helpful and jolly!

The children loved all the toys that were provided in the villa and all the beach equipment and pool toys (lilo, snorkels, buckets etc) were a great addition, saving making those annual purchases that invariably get left behind!

A car is a must as the taverna close by was only open once on our stay. Plenty of other great places to eat not too far by car. Lots of great beaches and Lake Kornas was fabulous. We did lots ot turtle watching and were rewarded by many 5am starts by seeing turtles hatching. Fantastic!

The kids loved the pool and were in it all hours. The shadiness of the pool early mornings and late afternoons made it quite chilly for me, but once in was refreshing!

I can highly recommend this villa for a perfect relaxing holiday. Would love to visit again.

Great views

A lovely villa for families with great views. A car is essential as the nearest town is 5 mins drive. BBQ area and pool means even days in are enjoyable. Local shop 2 mins walk and very handy.

White Mountain View For a wonderful holiday.

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is a beautifuly maintained example. We spent a wonderful three weeks holiday there. Thanks to Lesley and Tim the villa is like a home from home with everything you will need. The grounds are very secure for children, with gates and fencing, It is in a small hamlet with a shop and a taverna that sells excellent food. The local people are very friendly and there are fantastic views of the mountains from the rear balconies. There are two supermarkets only 5 minutes away and a good variety of shops, there are also a number of very good taverna's we ate in on a warm evening. The scenery is breathtaking as the villa is situated on a hill,we sat there of an evening on the balcony with a glass of wine, nothing better. We can't wait until next year, we are deffinately going again.

wonderful villa

  • 5 out of 5
Having spent 10 days in this villa I can only praise the owners, Lesley and Tim, for equipping their property in such a fantastic way. There was everything that you could wish for in the villa, and more.
The property is in a superb location, within easy reach of the surrounding towns, but also far away from them to give you peace and quiet for the relaxing holiday.
The village Darmarohori has only a few houses, a local supermarket and a Taverna.
A car is a must if you are thinking of hiring this villa, however there are plenty of car hire companies around.
This is an ideal base either for relaxing in the villa and enjoying the pool, or as a base for sightseeing, after all, this side of Crete is such a beautiful country and well worth seeing.

peaceful holiday villa

  • 5 out of 5
Having spent 9 days at White Mountain View I would like to praise Lesley and Tim for renting out a very well equipped property, they have thought of everything that you will require at the accommodation.
It is in a very secluded area, the village has a tavera, shop and a few houses, but is also within easy driving distance of the local towns where everyone seem to be very friendly.
You really do need access to a vehicle at all times if you want to visit the surrounding areas as local transport would not be so easy from the villa.
Places of interest are numerous, and if you just want to laze in the sun then the pool in the property is fantastic, so is the peace and quiet.
Overall, a wonderful holiday,highly recommended.
Our experience at Heraklion airport was the only downside to the holiday,it was hot and stuffy, unfortunately for us there was an air traffic strike on, which meant a very long delay in extremely uncomfortable surroundings.

1 min walk from the villa is the village shop. 5 mins drive from the villa and you have some wonderful restaurants in Kolimbari.

Drive 5 mins from the villa and you will find the villages of Tavronitis and Kamisiana they have supermarkets, Tavernas, bakers, butchers, a pharmacy and the most amazing cake shop.

Head towards Platanias and there you will find bouncy castles for the children and crazy golf for the bigger children. Plus a multitude of shops, tavernas and a long stretch of sandy beach.

The ancient Olive tree Museum is 5 mins drive from the villa, this is where the Olive sprigs came from for the 2008 Olympic games in Athens, it is considered as a natural heritage monument.

Near the villa is a Vineyard you can go and have a tour and a taste!! The wine is excellent.

Our villa is approx 25 mins drive from Chania a beautiful Venetian city, also known as little Venice. The harbour is fantastic with lots of restaurants and shops. There are boat tours from the harbour daily and horse drawn carriages will take you for a tour around the harbour area.

Beaches are a multitude whether you want quiet or busy there is something for everyone!! We love Pirates cove beach 15 mins drive from the villa, make sure to take a snorkel with you as the fish are amazing.

Malame beach is just over 5 mins drive from the villa, and is a pebble beach there are shops and restaurants here you can eat your evening meal on the beach while watching the sunset. There is also a pool bar, were you can order cocktails and food while looking out at the sea ( great for the children also).

Santorini is only a boat ride away, and daily boat trips are available.

Gramvousa and Balos boat trips are available from Kissamoss.

If you like history Aptera is a must, just outside Chania the old Minoan city is worth a trip. Also on the same site there is a Roman city, German battlements, a monestary and a Turkish fort. There are little tavernas on the way to Aptera.

At the bottom of the Island is Elefonisi the most beautiful beach, you can wade out quite away, there is also an island that you can cross too which is a nature reserve the fauna here is lovely.

About 35 mins drive from the villa is the water park Limnoupolis, this is great fun for all the family.

Samaria Gorge is fantastic for walking there are guided tours available it takes approx 5 hours to walk and you do need walking boots. If you are lucky enough you may see the Kiri Kiri goats that live in the mountains or the Golden Eagles that soar in the sky here.

There are scuba diving tours in nearby Kissamos.

Horse riding is in nearby Platanaias.
