                                                              This villa is exactly as described and more. It is located privately amongst olive trees out of sight of the road but with superb views over the mountains and sea and still it is within easy walking distance of the village and shops and tavernas, also the bus stop to Chania and Kissamos. The owner is welcoming and gracious and has taken great care to furnish and equip this house to the highest standards. The garden and pool area is delightful; the pool is cleaned daily and the villa was also cleaned and linen changed half way through our stay of 8 nights. Highly recommended.

                                                              Fantastic villa

                                                              All the other comments tell the truth, this is a great villa, you can not go wrong here. We always find there is something missing in a villa, but not this one. Everything is comfortable, spacious, clean, quiet, well maintained and in order. All the facilties are there as promised and in perfect condition. The pool gets cleaned everymorning at a reasonable time and the kind owner will do everything to make sure you will be fine. When leaving he asked is if we had any comments and probably for the first time we could say no , everything was just great. The rooms are all spacious, the hot water is always hot and the wifi is strong and always working. We watched the news on an ipad and the streaming was perfect. Highly recommended!!
