Having been guided into the villa from the National Road at Georgioupoli, by the owner travelling in convoy, we had a home cooked meal waiting for us in the oven when we arrived and a stacked fridge, all totally unexpected. This was followed up with other treats, all home made, throughout our stay whenever they popped in for pool maintenance or cleaning. Such was their company that we invited the owners to dinner one evening, and had a lovely time sat out by the BBQ eating, drinking and chatting for some hours. We did our bit to keep this picturesque villa looking a pretty as it does by watering the plants each evening - we felt it only right as otherwise so much could have died, and Crete has been suffering from a prolonged dry period. Lazy days by the pool, relaxing and comfortable evenings listening to the night wildlife, watching the bats, star gazing and enjoying the company of our family made this the perfect holiday. We even got to watch some of the Olympics when we felt like a change of pace in the evening. The resident cat had kittens - which we fed, and wanted to bring home with us - just helped make this villa feel even more homely. A car is a must - the local taverna is the other side of the valley, and to get out for shopping is a drive. The nearest neighbour is about 500m up the track. The taverna serves a very limited menu, but the food is delicious and cheap. It was so good we went there 3 times in our 2 weeks out there. It is a real locals place, and we were the only tourists there, abd were made to feel very welcome. Without doubt, we will be back.

We knew we had to bring pool/beach towels but for 5 people it almost took up a whole case so it would have been nice not to carry these &cheaper to buy towels there. The villas are not walkable in the Summer heat from anywhere that teenagers want to go,they need to have lifts everywhere.We knew we had internet access provided,what we didn't know was that it ran out after a week and we were told 2 go out and buy more.It should have been made clear that it was limited access.All 5 people used it for emails/online tickets/events/local knowledge etc Also, there was nowhere we could eat outside together,the 10 of us. So we moved the tables into the courtyard between the villas 2 enjoy a leisurely meal all together with our friends,this is where the bbq is.We were told after that not 2 move the tables outside & a replacement table with plastic chairs was delivered.However,this cd not accommodate 10 people.There are also 2 very barky 24/7 chained dogs nearby that literally bark all day as they are so bored & miserable. Lastly, we specifically asked if the studio flats on the ground floors were to be occupied.Told it was the owners so they cd look after the villas.However,a family of 4 moved into 1flat for 6 days.Altho they didn't use pool/garden,the adults were smokers & the smoke drifted.
