We were made to feel very welcome by Gabby and Manolis. The fully stocked fridge and homemade Mousaka in the oven allowed us to relax from the moment we arrived. The villa had everything we would want and Gabby provided extra little touches throughout to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Recommendations on where to go and what to see were greatly received too. The ability to walk to two lovely villages with the kids meant we were spoiled for choice if we wanted to eat and drink out. We have already given our strongest recommendation to friends and family!

The villa is beyond perfect, the grounds and pool were amazing, clean at all times and kept impeccable. Gabby (villa owner) is the nicest lady ever, nothing was too much trouble and she helped us with so much, no questions asked. Her and her husband were so kind and polite-beautiful people. I also have to mention the 'welcome pack'....WOW, not only was out fridge literally full of everything we needed, Gabby had also cooked us lunch-amazing. I cannot recommend these villas more highly, we will defiantly be coming back...perhaps longer next time as it was excellent. Thank you Gabby xxx

Voici la meilleure façon de vous détendre: Prenez le premier avion pour Héraklion,louez une voiture et en route pour 13 kilomètres, jusqu'au petit village d'Anopolis : c 'est un endroit qui plaira à ceux qui apprécient de vivre loin du tumulte des stations balnéaires surpeuplées. Manolis, le propriétaire , vous accueillera avec un grand sourire. Avec Kalsatis, son adorable fille qui parle très bien français, ils vous guideront dans la visite de leur ancienne maison familiale qu'ils ont parfaitement restaurée et qui a gardé toute son âme crétoise. L'équipement est moderne et rien ne manque. Gros coup de coeur pour le petit jardin dans lequel les fleurs, et surtout le jasmin, embaument. La terrasse est également un endroit où il fait bon s'installer : vue magnifique sur monastère,collines ,champs d'oliviers, sans oublier le chant des cigales. C'est calme, c'est beau, c'est bon. Pour les visites et bonnes adresses, laissez vous guider par les bons conseils de Manolis
