It has a well equipped spacious open plan kitchen and comfortable sitting area. The bedrooms are not huge but perfectly acceptable for a holiday villa with a nice rustic decor and all rooms have A/C. The grounds are well maintained as is the small pool with someone coming to look after it every day. The BBQ area is nice and there is a large outdoor seating area. In total there are 3 villas in this complex but all are designed slightly differently and with the high fence you cannot be overlooked by neighbours. All three villas have a view onto the sea. Sonia the owner is very welcoming, she was happy to help and advise with any questions we had and if she wasn't sure she would find out and come back to us. She comes to clean the villa twice a week, change the towels and bedding (she also provides towels for the pool area). You do need a car if you stay here. There are plenty of supermarkets / petrol station / bakers etc close by and you can quickly get onto the main highway to explore Crete further. We flew into Chania and it took us around 80 mins to get to the villa from there. If you stay here try Taverna Eleven which is on the beach, serves lovely food and you get a great sunset view.

Maria looked after us exceptionally well, with food prepared on arrival and again in the week and the house cleaned twice during our 10 day stay. The pool and BBQ were extremely well perceived by the kids. Would always recommend. Thank you Maria!

Sonia made us feel so welcome and went well beyond the duties of a host. The tranquility of the villa is wonderful and you find yourself immersed in the wild life. Surrounded by some fantastic beaches that are served by lovely Cretan Tavernas, this is a very special place, and one that we would love to return to.
