Fabulous!

5 of 5
A beautifully restored stone house on the edge of the village. The views over the olive tree covered hills from the large south facing terrace are wonderful. It is well equipped with lovely features inside. I appreciated the bath and cotton bedding. The house was very clean for our arrival and Julie had provided us with her own oil and a bottle of lovely white wine - both very much appreciated. She was very good at communicating and responding to enquiries. We had a wonderful week in this Cretan rural location, but close enough to the national road to be able to get to places east and west very easily. Perfect!
