Lovely villa and pool but very remote

4 of 5
The villa had everything we needed. Clean, spacious and well equiped. The pool was beautiful. If we had been nearer to taverners and a shop it would then have been perfect. A car was so essential.

We add a first class vacation full of joy and discoveries. The views from the front deck of the Souda Bay villa are simply enchanting and even though I have traveled a lot in my life, I have never had a villa with such views on the Mediterranean.. People in Crete are very welcoming, the food is great and so is the wine. An absolute must is the freshly squeezed orange juice. The beaches are extremely nice, with clear waters and good snorkeling from some. The rides in the mountains are superb. Strolling through the old towns is extremely nice and Chanias old town is only fifteen minutes away whilst Rethymnos old town (narrower streets, extremely nice place) is less than one hour and well worth the ride.e Both road to the South (coastal and through mountains) are extremely scenic. In a nutshell, go to Crete for a great vacation!
