Got back today from a great week in Crete. Villa is immaculate, great position in the hills with views off the sea and mountains. Great position with loads to do all within a 20 mins drive. The villa has everything you need it's beyond fantastic we have a great time and it's so peaceful. Three great tavernas in a two mins walk and loads of great places to eat within a few minutes drive. Would recommend to anyone. Villa done to highest standards. Thanks Chris

Very friendly complex, was welcomed by the owners friends and invited out for an evening meal. Tried many restaurants that were recommended by the owners . The villa was very clean and tidy and well presented. A short walk to local bars and restaurants. Will definately go back again.
