                                                                                                      Just got back from two great weeks staying at this villa with two of our adult children. We had great communication with the owners before we travelled, good instructions were given to find & access the villa which we found to be exactly as described & spotlessly clean. There was a lovely 'Welcome basket' & some 'essentials' ready for us. We found the villa very comfortable & well equipped with everything we needed. You could spend hours just looking at the views & night after night the sunset views were stunning - we particularly enjoyed watching the sunset whilst swimming in the FANTASTIC POOL! There were plenty of lovely seating areas & sunbeds to relax on and to eat outside & we loved watching the August Meteor Shower from the sunbeds and having a dip in the pool to cool off before bed. However the aircon in all the bedrooms made sleeping very comfortable. The villa is tucked away up a mountain but with a car we found the area easy to explore visiting Chania, Georgiouploli, Lake Kournas, Agia Marina (where we hired a boat), Rethimno as well as countless beautiful beaches. A highlight was snorkelling at Koutalas Beach! We found eating out very good especially in Kalyves & Almyrida at the beach restaurants. We were made to feel very welcome to this villa & the local managers were helpful - we would definitely recommend staying here!

The house was decorated to the highest standard and the views from the rooftop terrace were breathtaking. Evelina supplied water, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls,soap powder and conditioner for washing, something that we have always had to buy ourselves when arriving at previous holiday rentals. We had the most amazing chilled holiday at Evelina's house and was made to feel welcome and part of Evilana's family during our stay, we were sad to leave, but will definitely be returning not only for our holiday, but to see Evelina and her family again. Thank you Evelina to you and your family for making us feel welcome in your beautiful home in Chania. Look forward to seeing you again.
