This villa is beautiful and has the most fantastic infinity pool overlooking the sea and Spinalonga island. The village of Plaka is a couple of minutes walk and has a good range of restaurants. Watersports one minute from the villa on the pebble beach. It's only ten minutes drive to Elounda where there are good butchers, greengrocers and supermarkets.
The villa is beautifuuly kept and is comfortable with everything we needed. It is maintained and managed by a British lady called Christine who is lovely. She was helpful both before we went and whilst we were there. The villa was spotlessly clean.
The car hire we used was Byron Travel, recommended by Christine, and they were good too (good service and no hidden extras!)
I would recommend this villa to a family with older children (ours are 18, 21 and 22) Actually, it was great not to rent something geared up for tinies!
For me, the best was the pool. Just enjoying that view all day was so relaxing.
