Stunning villa and outstanding service and attention to detail

5 of 5
I can thoroughly recommend this villa. It's absolutely beautiful and extremely well equipped. A great deal of thought has been put into providing everything you may need and more. We were given a lovely welcome and the owners had left us a completely packed fridge on arrival including wine. It was very thoughtful. Anna even bought over a delicious cheese pie which we all loved. Nothing was too much trouble. They helped us with car hire at short notice and additional sunbeds. We felt looked after and they insisted if you need anything just ask. The villa is in a very secluded spot. You do really need a car. The beach and setting for the villa are stunning. There are two small tavernas near by. The beach one had live music and dancing and when we visited the one on the road we were made very welcome. It was family run and the owner joined us for raki and told us all about the area. That was lovely. The pool area of the villa is amazing and we had many lovely evenings watching the spectacular sunsets and barbecuing in the outside kitchen. We were a family group of eight. There is a lovely games room in the basement with a pool table,TV and exercise machines. The villa was cleaned literally from top to bottom every three days including changing all the bed linen and towels. Every morning the pool area is swept and tidied before you get up. Definitely the most beautiful villa we have stayed in and the best customer service we have experienced. A big thank you to Anna and Stella.

Wonderful villa in a great location

5 of 5
We stayed here for a week for a family holiday of 11 adults and 1 toddler. The villa was great for our needs. We were met on arrival and 2 of us were taken into the nearby town just so we could see where the main things we would need were which was really useful. The villa had Good size bedrooms with air-con (which was needed) and great living /kitchen area with nice balcony. The pool was a great size and we loved the table outside for eating together as the weather was beautiful. The walk into town was a nice 10 minute stroll. The supermarket had a good variety of stock and their was a wonderful selection of restaurants to choose from. The girls from luxury villas left a booklet with ones they recommended and these were all wonderful. The girls were so helpful throughout our stay and their office handy for just popping in while at the supermarket. Everything we needed was in walking distance but we did hire a car for one day to explore a little which is worth doing. Cost of car hire was so cheap. If we were going back to Crete would definitely use luxury villas again and I would be happy to recommend this villa as we had a fabulous holiday.
