                                  Just returned from a week at Villa Oleander and could not recommend this more highly enough. We were 4 couples and 7 children and there was so much space we never felt on top of each other. Amazing outdoor eating and pool area and Margarita and family had thought of everything and were so helpful. Great beaches 5-10 mins drive away particularly Sunset taverna hidden away near Stavros beach- very special. A must.

                                  Beautiful Villa with a garden full of herbs, lemon and olive trees and a great swimming pool.

                                  The villa is as described, plenty of room, very well equipped kitchen and full of stylish and tasteful furnishings. We had a delightful family holiday (9 of us) in April 2016. We were lucky with the weather mostly sunny 22 - 27 degrees. Although the pool has heating we didn't need it. The garden is really well equipped with plenty of pool towels and loungers, out door seating and bar-b-q. The villa is stunning with vaulted, bare wood ceiling. Every thought has been taken to make this place a luxurious holiday experience. Evagellia was a most welcoming host and happy to help with recommending restaurants, shops and activities. There is a daily cleaner which was a surprise bonus - Georgia is great and takes every care to ensure the house and garden are kept clean and tidy. The local shop is well stocked and staff very friendly, nearby Koupoudiana has supermarkets, bakery, really good fish mongers and a great taverna called The Four Pigs. Also Irene's Taverna, towards Stavros is a great place for traditional greek food. Local beach is small but fine for swimming. We went diving and snorkelling with Chania Dive Centre, they were great, picked us up from the villa and took us out to more remote areas of sea to snorkel and dive. Overall a very satisfying holiday, we didn't do much exploring the island because the villa was so good. The cretan people are very friendly. Would really recommend Crete and this villa for a relaxing and fun holiday.
