It was clean, comfortable and well looked after. We have a young family and we found there was more than enough room for all of us - Sam and Jerry were great and also ensured we had everything we needed, including a cot for our youngest. The pool was an added bonus and the children spent most days swimming (even though the water hadn't quite warmed up yet!). The location was great - it was quiet and peaceful, but yet we were only a short journey from Chania. We will definitely be back again!

Seems the season in Crete doesn't really start until June, and this makes no sense as the weather when we were there was nigh on perfect and not those blisteringly hot days that make August there unbearable. The advertised walk to the local village was bang on accurate and we did it a number of times as it was a highlight, and the random encounters with Goats and the like on the way added immeasurably to the experience. When you get there, the small but perfect choice of taverna's was just what anyone would want and of course, the Easter celebrations in Greece are legendary, and you must try the local beer (Charma, pronounced harmer, but it didn't do too much damage) and the raki is, of course, to be respected. The villa was spotless and very well appointed and the managers (Mark and June) were about as nice a couple as you could ever want to meet, even bringing some cushions from their own home to soften the hours of sun bedding. Although difficult to find in the dark the supplied Google map link worked and not a single wrong turn was made, and all the pre-supplied instructions were well worth reading through before hand. Good size pool but good God the water was cold, early season issue that I hadn't considered. However, it did wake you up. Yes, we would go again, in a heartbeat.
