Panos was really friendly and helpful, there was some welcome refreshment on arrival. we simply loved the place.

The villa itself is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped, making it feel like home. We particularly enjoyed the stunning, warm pool and outdoor areas, with their captivating views across the White Mountains and Ocean. The children also delighted in feeding and making a fuss of Pandora the cat! The villa itself is perfectly placed to be able to easily access on foot the local beaches, Tavernas and amenities. As well as thoroughly enjoying the beaches at Kera, Almyrida and Kalyves, we also drove west to spend a day at Elafonisi, where the beach was as beautiful as any we experienced in the Seychelles, with crystal clear, azure waters and pink sand. Other highlights were the fantastic “Dream Adventure” boat trip from Almyrida, in which you speed along the coast, explore the cliff-side caves and snorkel from the boat and also the traditional Greek night at Cretan Corner up in the mountain village of Aptera. Here we had a lovely meal with dancing, which we participated in and greatly enjoyed! The quality of food and hospitality in the local Tavernas was outstanding; our particular favourites were “Francoise” in Almyrida, perfect for breakfast and lunch time snacks, “Cretan Corner” in Aptera, where we had the best Stifado and “Drosostalia” in Armeni, where we had the largest and most delicious pork chop imaginable! There is so much to do in the local area for all ages and fitness levels, although, with such stunning views, it is tempting to stay at the villa and relax. We have enjoyed a perfect week and would highly recommend staying here. Jill & Rod Ham

We rent a car for all 6 of us and it performs perfectly. Wonderful beaches are reachable by car, we spent every day in a different beach all over our 15 days of stay. When we were back in the evening we felt as at our home by the beginning: we got always meals sitting in the cottage's garden in front of an amazing mountain landscape, hearing real Greek village sounds as background. Every device in the house is the last model, very modern and well performing. Wi-Fi connection is perfect. Mum of Ioannis and his brother is the stone of the family, she guarantee a perfect cleaning standard, we loved her meals prepared with Greek recipe. We enjoyed thoroughly these 2 weeks bringing home a fruitful sense of peace. Thanks all of you.
