George was a terrific host, and the villa was just as the pictures showed. We were just three, and the size was perfect, but 6 could be very comfortably accommodated. The pool is amazing, the bbq area very well equipped, and the inside is really welcoming and homely without being cluttered. It's hard to write more - I don't want to spoilt the secret! We will definitely come back to this idyllic spot. If you don't know Crete, then please visit - it is a stunning island with incredibly friendly (and genuinely friendly, not just after the tourist $$) locals. Chania is nearby and this is a beautiful Venetian harbor. There are so many places to stay, you almost can't go wrong In Crete. But if you have a young family, don't want to drive too far, love the beach and swimming in the sea then try Villa Stavros - it's an absolute gem and George was an exceptional host.

Close to the beach, close to Chania, handy for shops and restaurants. Next time we will fly into Chania instead of Iraklion (flights booked before accommodation!) and have a 10 minute drive rather than 2 hours!
