                                                                                                      I cannot recommend this villa enough - mainly down to the exceptional generosity and attentiveness of the hosts but also to the outstanding location if you are looking for peace and quiet with wonderful views. We only take villa holidays as we like to get away from it all and I was amazed by the peace and tranquillity of this villa and the awesome view (you are 2,500 metres above sea level, or so my watch told me). The villa has everything you need for a home from home but the thing that really stood out for me and which was a pleasant surprise was the fact the owners offer the service of a 'menu' of home cooked dishes if you don't fancy leaving the villa (which they cook at home and deliver to your villa ready to heat up in the oven). This was a blessing for me as normally we like to stay in and cook for ourselves. We tried several dishes and all were absolutely delicious. The hosts are not only attentive, responsive and friendly but are also the most generous we have come across. On arrival you are greeted with a free bottle of their own wine, their own olive oil and a delicious meal in the oven to heat up. Not only this, during our stay they gave us a home made walnut cake and on several occasions home made patties. We will definitely be back as we are already missing the peace and quiet, with only the sound of goat and sheep bells.

A stunningly restored and tastefully modernised village house in a beautiful position within a traditional Cretan hilltop village, enjoying panoramic views to the sea and along the coast towards Rethymno. The owner Alexandra gave us the warmest of welcomes and could not have been more helpful. Apart from the fact that the house is very well equipped and beautifully maintained, Alexandra had also provided fresh tomatoes, local yogurt , honey and olive oil, together with homemade goodies, including home baked biscuits, muesli and her mother's delicious cheese pies. While the house itself is very special, with all the warmth and charm of a much loved family home, there is also lots to do and see in the surrounding area. There are plenty of good tavernas nearby, an amazing bakery in Vamos and it is within easy striking distance of Chania itself. But, when the sun shines, you will find it very difficult to tear yourself away from the fantastic terrace and infinity pool! We will definitely be back!
