Villa Helios proved to be a good choice as it is in the middle of beautiful countryside with every kind of ramble literally on the doorstep. The house has more space than we imagined and very well laid out. Views towards the White Mountains from the upstairs bedrooms are truly spectacular. We especially liked the colourful mediterrainean plants and shrubs growing around the house. Although just two of us this time, I can imagine it would be an excellent base for family holidays. Very good value, the owner (John) is a pleasure to deal with and responded to my questions very quickly. Will be returning with more friends sometime soon.

It is in it's own enclosed space with fresh fruit (lemons, limes and grapes) all growing in the garden! A reasonable sized kitchen and living area for those who wish to stay indoors and not sample Cretan night-life and a gain, only a short walk to various shops for fresh fruit, bread, meat etc. A couple of minor points to note. The area is residential and a lot of people keep dogs - these can be awake very early and if they are up then so are you! The next door neighbour produces his own wine and whatever machinery he has is just outside the bedroom so it can be heard sometimes (although not too early) - the upside is that the wine he produces is very good and he threw in a bout 5lb of grapes when we bought a couple of bottles from him! low water pressure in the shower was a bit of a pain but not massively. The villa itself is a little bit dated however this adds to it's charm - if you want internet and television then book a hotel! The owner (Jim) was very courteous and quick to reply (all contact with him was via email) and the couple that managed the villa on his behalf were very friendly and accommodating. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely consider booking again.

Favorite of ours - bedroom balcony overlooking Souda Bay in the distance. Property very clean, starter pack in fridge much appreciated and all there that you needed. Wifi was a bonus, books and games on the side welcome entertainment for evenings. Walked down to village to eat at Takis Restaurant frequently - steep short-cut leads down to village (just behind garden). Supermarket nearby, bar and other restaurants in village or further down the hill in Almyrida. We would recommend property to small group of friends (4) or small family for a quiet holiday in lovely surrounding. Rental Car a must.
