The villas in the south of the island will take just over an hours drive from Heraklion. Roads are basic and windy and hiring a car is essential for this trip and any additional exploring you may do. Do visit Matala and see the caves made famous by Joni Mitchell. A complex of three independent villas sharing a sizable pool. Villas sleep four and can be booked individually or complete for exclusive use. Each villa named after Greek mythology is individually decorated and contains all mod cons expected from a luxury self catering villa... there is an exclusive outdoor terrace (two of which are shaded) and balconies from the bedrooms on the first floor of each of the villas. You are welcomed by the multi lingual, friendly and helpful Heike who points you in the right direction on how to use all the appliances. She points out the welcome pack of Cretan Wine and Water a refreshing start to the vacation after your flight, ferry and or drive. Kitchen has full sized oven, hob, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Bathroom holds the washing machine also an outdoor dryer to hang washing. Downstairs loo and upstairs bathroom with shower. All beautifully appointed. The bedrooms have lots of storage and spare pillows and duvets if required. Pool towels are provided and there is a mid week laundry change and clean. Bathroom soap dishes are full and toilet roll is there however replacements during your stay is your responsibility (ideally essentials like this in luxurious rentals would be covered by the owners rather than guests... they did replace for us) Air Conditioning will work while doors and windows are closed. If open I recommend using the screens to avoid the irritating mosquitos from entering. Sivas is the most traditional Cretan village, perfect and non commercial over the hill to the right where you will find four tavernas, mini supermarket as well as a ceramic shop and more. It can be busy with tourists from surrounding area. Food is traditional and we never had a bad meal... English is widely spoken and understood. The local drink unlike other Greek Islands is not Ouzo but Raki a very nice Brandy like drink placed on your table like a condiment at the start of your meal and your taverna owner will produce a shot of Raki at the end of your meal. Definitely returning!

We were greeted by Giorgos and his family who were lovely and helpful with pre-holiday info and so welcoming during our stay. (The welcome pack included a lovely bottle of wine and honey from their family farm)! It is a really lovely villa, very modern and comfortable inside, but it's the outside space that we never wanted to move from. It's amazing! Great pool, gorgeous views of the sea and the sun going down over the headlands. Plenty of shade for most of the day and lots of outdoor furniture to sit or sunbathe or eat outside. Really lovely. The villa is also an easy downhill 10 min walk to the village (although the walking is mostly on an unfinished road so a torch is useful). Lots of lovely places to eat, or just get a beer/cocktail. Some craft shops and s supermarket in the village too. Several sandy beaches within about a 5-10min drive, lots to pick from. The phaestos palace was worth a visit. Great villa! Thanks for a lovely stay!
