                                                                                        The villa is very well layed out, tastefully decorated and very well equipped with climate control, comfortable beds, storage space, a spacious living area and a kitchen with everything you could need. The outside space really makes it though. There's a small paddling pool and a reasonably sized pool of 1.5m uniform depth which we used every day. Around the pool there is large space with a huge table, plenty of seating and quality sun loungers. There's also a great outside cooking area with huge BBQ and pizza oven. There are views to the mountains and the sea and olive groves all around. We arrived in the evening and straight away experienced the warmth and hospitality of the Cretan people, right from the people in the car hire place (a car is essential), to our host Georgos who was attentive, considerate and an all round gentleman with a lovely family. We got a bit lost when we arrived in the village and he even came out to look for us. The village is a 10 minute walk down hill from the villa and we loved Kamilari. It's pretty, has an authentic, natural feel and the people are friendly. There is a small supermarket and several nice restaurants and tavernas of which our favourite is 'Melonas', which served great value, nice food, most of which is produced locally on the owners farm. There are plenty of things to do nearby. We headed into the mountains to the place where the local spring water is produced (Zaros) and there's a 2km walk to a monastery which our 5 year old managed easily enough. The beaches of Kalamaki and Kommos are a very short drive (Kommos had waves big enough for surfing) but we like Matala where the sea was still and you could dive off the rocks of the Neolithic caves which were used as tombs by Romans and more recently, rooms for hippies in the 70s including Joni Mitchell. The town still retains a bit of a hippy vibe! The smaller roads in the south can be a little rough if you want to get off the beaten track. We were glad to have hired a 4x4 but you can get around fine without one. All in all a great villa which we would highly recommend and to which we hope to return. The temperature was 26 in the day (2nd week of October) and still warm in the evenings for outdoor dining. Kalimari and the surrounding area was just what we wanted, plenty to do but quiet and relaxed.

Facilities are all good - this is a house for living in. We have done a lot of South Crete, and this area is arguably amongst the best - beautiful bays and beaches to discover, some perfect Tavernas, and, in Kerames, a lovely unspoilt hill-village without a nod to tourism, just friendly people ! easy couple of hours drive from Chania - Paul was a great host too ! Highly recommended ! PS - if its windy, the cove at Ag. Fotini is sheltered !
