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!

Sisi and Antoni just lovely. 2 mins walk to the local village for food and music — Pitsidia square is gorgeous. Pool is amazing. Looking forward to our next visit!
