We had a wonderful week staying in the House in the Sun. Kathy and Chris made us feel at home the moment we arrived. The flat is well equipped and really well planned. There were many thoughtful additions such as the welcome basket and beach towels.
We really didn't want for anything.
We were woken by the tinkling bells around the necks of the next door sheep and a wonderful sunrise every day. The view across the valley is full of all that Crete has in abundance, olives, figs, walnuts and showed us the path to walk to the next village where we came across a newly painted church to St Anthony.
The local taverna is well worth a visit. The owners are helpful and the food is honest and very local. Vryses, the nearest town, is a very traditional town which has several small supermarkets and tavernas.
Every day we did a trip in our hired car. We visited Chania and Rethymno, two towns with Venetian harbours, which are really attractive. The harbour in Chania was home to a very large turtle, which obliged us by doing a 'belly roll' and waving his flippers. We also visited Hora Sfakion, which involved a breathtaking drive over the mountains. We saw Griffon Vultures circling overhead and mountain goats perched on tiny ledges along the way. The harbour is where you can take a boat along the coast to secluded beaches - we chose lunch overlooking the sea and enjoyed every mouthful.
We would recommend the accommodation and location without hesitation. Joan and Julian
What a beautiful traditional villa set in amazing scenery, we were met at the airport by Sifis with our hire car, he led us to the villa where we were met by his mother who’d made us an amazing meal and showed us around the villa. We had all the essentials and more in the fridge, Yiannis had arranged a beautiful cake and decorations for our sons birthday which was on our first full day which was above and beyond what we expected. The villa has everything we needed, the 3 children loved the pool, we had 3 comfortably sized rooms and 2 bathrooms, the villa was cleaned half way through the week and we had another amazing meal! The villa is located about 5-10 mins drive from the main road through crete and only 30-40 mins from chania one way and rethmynon the other. We had such an amazing and relaxing holiday that we’ve booked again for next year.
