First of all, the accommodation impressed us all along the line!
Everything corresponded in all respects to the information in the advertisement and the expectations it conveyed.
Yes, it is really as beautiful on site as shown in the pictures!
The villa, situated on a spacious and inconspicuously fenced private property, lies quite a bit (approx. 7 km) inland and at an altitude of approx. 300 metres. However, the paved way to the area is no problem even with a normal car. On the property there are a total of four villas. Two free-standing villas and two directly adjacent villas, whose outer areas are separated by a thick hedge. Villa Argiro is one of the latter, but in our opinion it offers the best view and the best exposure to the evening sun from the west. The morning sun was best enjoyed at breakfast on the nice roof terrace.
The accommodation, as well as the whole area around the villas were in an extraordinarily well-kept condition.
On our arrival we were warmly welcomed by the very sympathetic owner with a Greek welcome gift basket. A short guided tour and briefing to electrical equipment and gate locking of the property then followed. The cleaning of the accommodation took place after agreement with us each three days, the pool cleaning however daily and discreetly between 7 and 8 o'clock in the morning, which always went unnoticed.
Via a telephone in the kitchen at any time contact with the landlord was possible. Internet access via Wi-Fi was stable, but the use of streaming services was limited due to limited bandwidth. Mobile reception and data throughput, on the other hand, were excellent.
All in all, we had a wonderful holiday on Crete and in Villa Argiro. In any case, we are sure that they will see us again in the Belvedere Villas and that we will spend more great holidays there in the next years!

Stella and Manos the hosts were very kind and generous which made such a difference to our stay. The house is in a perfect setting to explore the old town and near the bus station to explore the island without a car.
