            Lovely villa in Cretan atmosphere

            5 of 5
            We spent a wonderful week at Villa Olga. Located in the mountains, among the vineyards, far from the tourist beaten track along the coasts, the villa is a place of tranquility, a place to feel the real atmosphere of Crete. The villa is a good base to tour Crete, within reasonable driving distance to the northern coasts and cities, as well as to some hiking trails in the center. The house itself is beautiful and spacious. It is well equipped and very clean. The swimming pool is great and the garden surrounding is lovely. The owner provided very good support and prompt guidance. We had a great time. It is highly recommended!
