                                                        Super quiet location, very relaxing

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Villa was in super location very peaceful and easy to find. Has all the facilities to cater for all your needs and was super clean and although we were only a couple would be great for families. We did use the pool and once you get used to the temperature was super relaxing. We did go late May/ early June so I suspect that in the hotter months the pool is most welcome. I would recommend this any time of the year as hot weather does not suit us so if you like it a little cooler go early or late season. We found the tranquility of the surrounding countryside and the village of Kefalas to be just what we needed. Almydira is just a short 20 minute drive to a wonderful beach with a good choice of bars and restaurants. We would highly recommend this villa to families and couples for its quiet location, just a short walk into the village to get to the local supermarket, cafe and nice restaurant and super views over the med. Super accommodation and communication plus directions excellent. Paul and Sandra. Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

                                                        Beautiful, perfect, idyllic, everything you need!

                                                        This villa is a true gem and we had a fabulous holiday in Kefalas and Chania. Description very accurate and in fact the villa also has a private underground garage, ideal for keeping our hire car safe and also cool. Excellent communication and driving directions from the airport and arrangements to collect keys, we were also given a guided tour when we arrived. Kefalas has two mini markets in walking distance and tavernas and bars too, lovely picturesque village and friendly locals and service everywhere, nothing was ever too much trouble and we felt very welcome from day one. The villa itself is just beautiful with everything you could possibly need from the outdoor BBQ, sun loungers and parasols, kitchen utensils to wifi. It was peaceful and in a tranquil setting and we loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea watching the world go by and the sun rise/set. The villa was cleaned and fresh linen and towels provided mid week too. We enjoyed several days out to nearby Lake Kournas, Rethymno and Chania, and loved wandering around the old towns and harbours and Lake Kournas was so beautiful. It was lovely driving through the hidden villages of Crete instead of taking the National Road at times, and experiencing the real Cretan lifestyle. And it was also lovely returning to Mylo Villa and enjoying the privacy and tranquility of your own villa and particularly the fabulous pool. Kefalas felt like home for a week. We would highly recommend this property, it truly is a hidden gem, and in fact hope to return later this year and take our parents. And we want to say a special thank you to the owner and his lovely family too who could not do enough to make you feel welcome. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful villa, and we hope to be back soon :) Julie and Andy, Wirral, UK

                                                        We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Eleonas . The facilities are great, & the villa is stocked with everything we needed. It made such a difference. Marianna met us at Vamos a local village & we followed in our car to the villa as its a little tricky to find the first time but easy after that. There was fresh bread,milk,water cheese pies (delicious) waiting for us on arrival & lots lots more. The location is perfect. Quiet, private, & secure. The villa & grounds have lots of character & feel very Greek.. Olive trees, goats, fruit trees, vegetables & chickens. We were delighted to be provided with lots of this fresh tasty produce by Marianna's father who looks after the grounds. The pool is fantastic surrounded by beautiful flowers & the views of the mountains from the BBQ area are wonderful. It is a very child friendly villa. Our 2 young boys loved the pool, the space to run around safely,the wildlife including big friendly grasshoppers resting by the pool, colourful butterflies & feeding the goats in the evening.. Overall a fantastic villa & extremely helpful host.
