Villa Helios proved to be a good choice as it is in the middle of beautiful countryside with every kind of ramble literally on the doorstep. The house has more space than we imagined and very well laid out. Views towards the White Mountains from the upstairs bedrooms are truly spectacular. We especially liked the colourful mediterrainean plants and shrubs growing around the house. Although just two of us this time, I can imagine it would be an excellent base for family holidays. Very good value, the owner (John) is a pleasure to deal with and responded to my questions very quickly. Will be returning with more friends sometime soon.

Favorite of ours - bedroom balcony overlooking Souda Bay in the distance. Property very clean, starter pack in fridge much appreciated and all there that you needed. Wifi was a bonus, books and games on the side welcome entertainment for evenings. Walked down to village to eat at Takis Restaurant frequently - steep short-cut leads down to village (just behind garden). Supermarket nearby, bar and other restaurants in village or further down the hill in Almyrida. We would recommend property to small group of friends (4) or small family for a quiet holiday in lovely surrounding. Rental Car a must.

The property was in excellent order when we arrived and the managers popped round to check all was well. We also met the owner which was a bonus. This villa offers a great range of kitchen equipment for self catering and is the only villa we have stayed in that had a range of very sharp knives. The private pool and terrace was a real bonus and was spotless. The information on their website and in the villa was really helpful. The beach at Almirida with its bars and and restaurants is very near and easily accessible. Don't miss the Pear tree which provides excellent fresh food. The instructions for travel and finding the villa were spot on. Our thanks to all for a lovely holiday!
