It truly is a Beautiful Villa that is fully equipped with everything you might possibly need for a relaxing holiday, the multiple eating areas meant that you could find shade any time of the day whilst alfresco dining, topped off with the excellent outdoor kitchen meant for fun times with my 4 year old son cooking in the Pizza Oven with “Real Fire Dad” The Views are to die for, multiple terraces all facing out to sea with every bedroom benefitting from this, a lovely way to wake up in the morning ! The outdoor lounge was fantastic, which is an excellent shaded area with comfortable seats that was generally about 10 degrees cooler than being out in the sun. The pool kept the kids (big and small) amused for hours, regularly maintained and essential to cool off after many day trips to a really traditional and interesting part of Crete. The Village of Kefalas is only a short 15 min walk from the Villa where you’ll find an excellent restaurant Meterizi which is very reasonably priced and the food is really good – they had specials every night we went which made for a more varied eating experience. There is also Maddies Kaffeion which is also a great place to eat / drink and enjoy the local village life. There are 2 small Mini Markets in town which are pretty limited but good for picking up essentials, for self-catering we found that Vamos (a short 10 min drive away) had everything we needed, Jon the English Butcher was excellent and made it much easier buying cuts of meat that you could recognise ;-) he also makes his own Sausages with many flavours! There is a lovely Bakery and also a great Delicatessen (which is hard to see initially but can be found in the main square on the corner opposite the Pharmacy). Frank and Christine were excellent hosts, from the start of the booking process communication was always really quick and nothing seemed to much trouble, (Frank even sent me recipes to try out in the outdoor oven). Everything was exactly as described and it was lovely to meet Frank on our first couple of days just to make sure we knew how everything worked. I have no hesitation in recommending this outstanding property or booking through Frank as we had the most fantastic holiday and would love to go back soon. Ed and Amy

The owner Gregori is so accommodating and willing to go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Had a fabulous holiday here with the family. Nice size barbecue for the evenings in, followed by a family game of cards and finishing up with Gregory's home made Raki roulette - God help you if you got the clear one, it's like fire water! Plenty of reasonable places to eat down in Platanias, average 10 euros per head including drinks, or Rethymono port for a special treat - average 25 euros per head. All in all a lovely holiday and would love to return at some point. Thank you.
