Отличный отпуск на средиземном море!!!

5 of 5
Мы отдыхали на Крите в мае 2016 года . Наш выбор пал на Ириду виллу так как были все удобства для отдыха с ребёнком и что ещё не мало важно это наличие услуги подогрева бассейна . Забронировав эту виллу мы связались с владельцем Михалисом и были приятно уделены так как его супруга Ирина говорит на русском языке. С этого момента Ирина сделала наш отпуск максимально комфортным. Нас встретил трансфер в аэропорту, который она же организовала , предоставила нам все необходимое для нашего 10-ти месячного ребёнка , даже написала списки магазинов где покупать продукты питания для нашего малыша. Любая наша просьба выполнялась в кратчайшие сроки. Мы очень благодарны за столь теплый приём и мгновенную реакцию на все наши просьбы это была колоссальная помощь, а особенно учитывая то, что Ирине нужно было заботиться о своём 3-х месячном малыше. Что касается виллы то можем сказать, что дом ещё лучше чем на фото. Он намного больше и очень чистый, что для нас было важно. Так же владельцы построили огромную обеденную зону с барбекю, где мы проводили все наши вечера, это был для нас так же приятный сюрприз так как на момент нашего бронирования у них не было фото с барбекю зоной. Мы наслаждались тишиной и покоем находясь на вилле , это был просто Рай после шумного города. Мы обязательно вернёмся в это место ещё раз как только запланируем наш отпуск в Грецию.

Beautiful villa, fantastic hosts.

We were met at the airport by Yiannis and Eva. They organised the taxi for us and we followed them to the villa. Yiannis showed us round the property and poured us a drink and then Eva brought round a home cooked (and very welcome after a long journey) meal. The groceries provided were very welcome too as it gave us time to sus out the local shops. During our stay there were a couple of emails to make sure we knew all we needed to about the area and to inform us of when the cleaning day/time was. When Yiannis came round on cleaning day he noticed that we had finished the wonderful cake and organised another to be baked and brought round by Eva's mother. Fresh towels were provided. I loved swimming in the pool every day even though some would consider it a little on the cold side at the end of October. We chose not to hire a car although on reflection I think I probably would in the same situation again. We wanted a chilled out week of doing not very much so we didnt really go anywhere. We did go on the little train ride which was An interesting morning. I'm not sure i would be too keen on it in the middle of summer! At the end of the trip Yiannis organised the taxi back to the airport for us and came round for a last drink. Thank you for the gifts, they were a lovely surprise.
