The outside bar proved to be my favourite feature and such fun. We did go in the pool but it was cold at this time of year as expected even though the outside temperature was still quite warm. The upstairs bedroom door handle broke as the door was difficult to close but they were aware of this and didn't charge us. I assume this will be fixed for next visitors. Eva was really helpful throughout the stay and let us stay longer on the day of departure as the villa was to be empty the following week which was greatly appreciated. All mod cons in the kitchen and plenty of space and room in the large fridge.

It's in a fantastic location 2 minutes stroll to the beach, 10 minutes to the lake and old town. It's well equipped and furnished beautifully. The owners are very helpful and thoughtful hosts. Their recommendations of bars and restaurants were spot on. Highly recommended!

Beautiful setting, Hi-spec, spacious and extremely clean. More importantly the service we received from the agents Eva and Audrey was fantastic, nothing seemed too much work for them, even when it meant having to pick up a friend who was lost in the nearby town! Cannot recommend this set up enough for anyone wanting to explore eastern Crete. Tip: ask for catering at the property, the team who did this for us amazing, and very good value!
