We have just returned from staying at Belle Helene for two weeks (Aug 2018). We really enjoyed Crete but it was staying at this villa that made the holiday so special.
The villa itself is amazing and has a real wow factor when you first arrive. Guests have private parking and as you approach the villa entrance you get to take in the sea view, the wonderful private pool and jacuzzi, an amazing gazebo that allows you to enjoy the view and climate outside. The gazebo is equipped with fridge, sink and large smart TV that is connected to the wifi. The property is secluded, and you really feel you have privacy.
The luxury continues inside with amazing amounts of space. You can choose to eat inside or out and the kitchen is equipped with everything you would need. Four bedrooms easily accommodated our group of 7. All rooms have good air conditioning but we enjoyed having the breeze come into the property which is possible with the large doors (each door and window is equipped with screens (not noticeable) to stop mosquitoes). Most rooms also had TVs in them and certainly the channel selection accessible by the TVs in the lounge, gazebo and main bedroom (which included premiership football access which may be important to some)
The guest has been considered in every aspect of their stay. Towels are provided for both pool use and bathroom use. The kitchen has appliances to dispense chilled drinking water to save guests purchasing bottled water. The villa was cleaned twice a week and done to a really good standard.
Marinos and Helene, the owners, are quite simply the perfect hosts. They gave as the most warm welcome and took time to show us the property and they have every reason to be proud of it. Whilst being respectful of our privacy, they are immediately to hand if you were ever to need assistance. Marinos provided us with a local mobile phone to make calls if required but also to contact him at any time if needed. The warmth of their care, generosity and “nothing is too much” hospitality meant we left with great memories but also new friendships – I appreciate that sounds really gushy however there is no other way to put it. I cannot recommend staying here enough, not just because of the amazing villa, but actually the hospitality you will receive…..
