The villa was well equipped and we loved sitting out on the balcony with the fantastic views. The pool was a great size and it was nice having gardens all around. We found the location great as well and enjoyed visits to Aptera, Chania, Georgiopolis and many other places. Would definitely recommend and revisit.

It is clean and well maintained, with the local manager giving excellent service with a personal touch. Nothing is too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this, and the other villas in St Basil's olive grove. The mountain views are breathtaking and nearby Gavalochori village is a delight, with two excellent tavernas. 2.5km away the seaside village of Almyrida offers a range of shops, bars, tavernas and seaside activities. Top tip:use AutoClub car rentals.

The villa itself is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped, making it feel like home. We particularly enjoyed the stunning, warm pool and outdoor areas, with their captivating views across the White Mountains and Ocean. The children also delighted in feeding and making a fuss of Pandora the cat! The villa itself is perfectly placed to be able to easily access on foot the local beaches, Tavernas and amenities. As well as thoroughly enjoying the beaches at Kera, Almyrida and Kalyves, we also drove west to spend a day at Elafonisi, where the beach was as beautiful as any we experienced in the Seychelles, with crystal clear, azure waters and pink sand. Other highlights were the fantastic “Dream Adventure” boat trip from Almyrida, in which you speed along the coast, explore the cliff-side caves and snorkel from the boat and also the traditional Greek night at Cretan Corner up in the mountain village of Aptera. Here we had a lovely meal with dancing, which we participated in and greatly enjoyed! The quality of food and hospitality in the local Tavernas was outstanding; our particular favourites were “Francoise” in Almyrida, perfect for breakfast and lunch time snacks, “Cretan Corner” in Aptera, where we had the best Stifado and “Drosostalia” in Armeni, where we had the largest and most delicious pork chop imaginable! There is so much to do in the local area for all ages and fitness levels, although, with such stunning views, it is tempting to stay at the villa and relax. We have enjoyed a perfect week and would highly recommend staying here. Jill & Rod Ham
