For us it provided the perfect place to relax and unwind taking in the panoramic views of the Cretan sea merging into the constantly blue sky - a view you can take in from the comfort of your bed once you have mustered the small amount of energy needed to open the shutters. The villa itself is excellently appointed with a pool (regularly cleaned) and pizza oven and roasting racks. Inside all rooms have efficient air-con and there is even an excellent TV / Satellite package thrown in - we were able to keep up with Team GB exploits throughout the week. There is a modern kitchen and much welcomed arrival pack. Some great local beaches (you will need a car) - family favourites being Ombroglialos and Georgioupolis. Kefalas is a great place for a lazy wander round the town and Vamos is an interesting spot to hang about over a coffee and watch the world go by every morning. We even managed a few hikes round Vamos exploring the lost churches and Old town. Further trips to the amazing Balos and Falassarna are only about 1 hour away. Knossos about 1.25 hours and the lovely Chania old town 40 mins. Would fully recommend the villa and booking was easy and straightforward with great communication from Frank.

The location is very good, nice views and the owner Pon is very friendly and accessible. The villa and the pool are excellent. Also the WIFI (if you pay for it) works perfect. Strongly recommended!

It is a comfortable, quiet villa, with 3 bedrooms. The view on the white mountains is beautiful. We enjoyed to visit the West part of Crete and also to go to a nearby beach. Very pleasant stay. Nice welcome by the owners!
