cannot emphasise enough how special this villa is. Charming, peaceful, and beautifully decorated inside and out, we could find no fault with it. We had a sound night’s sleep every night on the CocoMat mattresses and were completely relaxed throughout the day in the very private garden and pool area and its comfortable sun loungers. Echoing previous reviews, what made our stay truly special was Anastasia herself, who was so warm and positive and made us all feel truly welcome. Her cooking was exceptional, and we were treated almost every day to a different mouth-watering local dish. On one evening after we’d finished our dinner and were lamenting our lack of dessert, Anastasia as if by magic knocked on the door with a freshly baked apple & cinnamon cake in hand! It was a perfect holiday- Anastasia is so kind and thoughtful and the villa itself so beautifully relaxed that we have booked again for next summer and cannot wait go back. Thank you, Anastasia, for your wonderful hospitality and we are very much looking forward to seeing you again, and of course your boys, Felix and Ginger, too!
First of all, the accommodation impressed us all along the line!
Everything corresponded in all respects to the information in the advertisement and the expectations it conveyed.
Yes, it is really as beautiful on site as shown in the pictures!
The villa, situated on a spacious and inconspicuously fenced private property, lies quite a bit (approx. 7 km) inland and at an altitude of approx. 300 metres. However, the paved way to the area is no problem even with a normal car. On the property there are a total of four villas. Two free-standing villas and two directly adjacent villas, whose outer areas are separated by a thick hedge. Villa Argiro is one of the latter, but in our opinion it offers the best view and the best exposure to the evening sun from the west. The morning sun was best enjoyed at breakfast on the nice roof terrace.
The accommodation, as well as the whole area around the villas were in an extraordinarily well-kept condition.
On our arrival we were warmly welcomed by the very sympathetic owner with a Greek welcome gift basket. A short guided tour and briefing to electrical equipment and gate locking of the property then followed. The cleaning of the accommodation took place after agreement with us each three days, the pool cleaning however daily and discreetly between 7 and 8 o'clock in the morning, which always went unnoticed.
Via a telephone in the kitchen at any time contact with the landlord was possible. Internet access via Wi-Fi was stable, but the use of streaming services was limited due to limited bandwidth. Mobile reception and data throughput, on the other hand, were excellent.
All in all, we had a wonderful holiday on Crete and in Villa Argiro. In any case, we are sure that they will see us again in the Belvedere Villas and that we will spend more great holidays there in the next years!
