Upon arrival the Villa was in immaculate condition, a set of fresh towels were laid out for us and a bottle of water was stored in the fridge. The villa was furnished to a high standard and was very well presented like a 5 star hotel! We would like to say a big thank you to Rose and Fred who came and greeted us during our stay, this made us feel even more welcome! We were extremely impressed as the villa is located within a minute walking distance from the beach and the central square of Elounda where there are a range of boutiques, restaurants and bars. Everything is right on your doorstep, you couldn't ask for anything better! We would highly recommend going to the Olio restaurant as the staff were very friendly and the Pizzas were to die for!! Finally, a massive thank you to Sue who looked after us and was always on hand if we needed any help!! We would definitely go back! Andrew & Hannah

La villa est très bien équipée et dispose de tout le confort nécessaire (machine à laver, Wifi excellent...) Le ménage est fait régulièrement ainsi que le nettoyage de la piscine qui est un vrai plus ! La belle plage d'Agios Nikolaos est à 10 ms en voiture et la merveilleuse plage d'Istron à 20 mns . Lisandros et Ella sont très sympathiques et à l'écoute de nos besoins En revanche l 'accès à la villa nécessite absolument une voiture 4 roues motrices.Notre jeep Suzuki était parfaite. Nous reviendrons certainement à cette belle adresse

The house was full of character, and very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The only thing it was missing was the washing machine. But on reflection - that was a perfect excuse to keep you away from everyday chores. George and Maria looked after us very well throughput our stay! Will definitely have this place in mind for future holidays!
