Good country walks on the doorstep, easy driving distance to Chania. The Villa was very clean and all essential needs were provided. We found the people of Crete very helpful and friendly, and very much so enjoyed our visit. Local food produce was fresh and the meals at the local Taverna's we visited were wonderful! A very relaxing atmosphere in the Villa, surrounded by mountain views. A great place to feel away from the 'hussle and bussle' of life. Plenty to do if you like nature and ancient history and good food!

Easy walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets along the seafront or down the side streets. The pool is slightly smaller than we were expecting but with the sea so close it was fine. Rooms were a nice size. Elizabeth and Evmorfia were really helpful during the booking process and while we were there.
