Working with Up Crete Villas was easy and helped build our confidence. The villa is just as beautiful as the pictures, maybe even better than the pictures. We were a family of 12 so we rented the whole house. It felt like we were coming home to a resort every time we would open the gates. The grounds are so beautifully landscape with Olive trees. Each room is equipped with it's own temperature control - that's a huge bonus for so many people with different preferences. The pool is by far the best pool I have ever swam in. It's the perfect temperature and I believe salt water. The villa is quick drive to the near by stores for groceries, bakery, gas, etc. The villa is about 20 min drive into Chania - we loved hanging out in the old town. Food is reasonably priced so you won't need to cook too much at the villa. Every amenity you need is at the villa - ice machine, pots and pans, some spices, hair dryers, iron, laundry, etc. Coming from North America we are used to separate washer and separate dryer so we had some trouble using the two in one machine. We never did figure it out! I definitely would recommend this villa and Crete. Be sure to take a boat to Ballos beach - it is just stunning.

This was our reaction on first entering the villa, together with the certainty of knowing that this, carefully chosen villa, was going to be absolutely perfect for our family get together. We were not wrong! The Villa Delfini was wonderful in every way, allowing us the space to go off into little groups or to join together for meals and 'Banagrams' tournaments! We were a mixed group aged from 11 to 60 and the villa fitted all our needs just perfectly. Beautiful pool area, huge terrace/seating areas and very clean, well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of crockery, glasses etc in the kitchen for mass catering and the large barbecue was fab! Sunsets and views abdolutely stunning. Lis, the manager, was a brilliant help - like having your own personal assistant although we tried not to abuse her kindness! The pool was cleaned and sheets/towels etc all changed mid-week, which we appreciated. We had to drag ourselves away from the villa to vist Tersanas beach (beautiful) and take a boat trip with Captain Nick from Chania (to be recommended). Our family came together from England and Australia to celebrate my 60th birthday and it was everything I could have wished for. The beautiful Villa Delfini was the icing on the cake. P.S. Geraniums watered regularly, Sarah!

Il ya de belles plages pas loin. Très pratique car proche de l'aéréoport. Petit bémol sur la connexion wifi assez mauvaise et l'équipement de la cuisine un peu léger ( 1 seule poele.) Merci beaucoup. On gardera un super souvenir de cet endroit!
