Amazing!

5 of 5
Gianna Villa is an absolutely fantastic villa! Our family spent one week there and the villa has everything you need and more to make your vacation wonderful. It really felt like a home away from home. The owner Natassa was very nice and made us feel very welcome. The standard of the interiour is very high, the pool area is great and the view is magical. We can´t wait to get back!

A beautiful, private retreat in Western Crete...

5 of 5
From the moment we park up at the top road and look down the steep slope past the heavily-laden fruit trees towards Bibby Villa we know we've found somewhere special. The sense of remoteness and space are what strikes us first, with the big skies and the splendid view westwards towards distant villages and the Rodhopou peninsula. Entering the villa itself we find a spacious and sensitively-decorated living area with adjacent well-appointed kitchen with everything we might need. The owner's locally-based support team have very kindly provided a substantial `welcome pack' of milk, bread, cheese and ham and other items so we won't need to go shopping immediately. We open the windows and shutters and explore the wide balcony, and look down at the inviting `infinity' swimming pool. A quick toe-dip in the water confirms it's a tad cold - it's October after all - but no matter, when the weather warms up there'll be plenty of opportunities for a swim. As we settle in to our holiday we realise that what's especially nice about the villa and its environs is that we don't feel compelled to get up early every day to go out and explore (...though we do visit quite a lot of the Western end of the island) - it's just nice to have a leisurely breakfast on the balcony, select a book from the thoughtfully provided small library, then relax in the sun on the terrace loungers, reading and listening to the songbirds and the hawks wheeling high overhead. We `cook in' on a few evenings during the week and, though the weather's getting a bit nippy, eat on the balcony with a bottle of splendid local red or rose wine, with a shot or two of raki to round off the evening - just perfect! We're well looked after by the owner's local team - a minor mishap with a bedroom door handle is swiftly rectified by "RHM" - and housekeeper Chris is an excellent source of recommendations for places to eat and visit. But all too quickly our week passes by and it's time to return home. We lock up, return the key to the key safe, and with a last wistful backward glance we drive back down the road towards Chania and the airport. But our memories of Bibby Villa are fixed now, and we know we'll be back some time. Many thanks to Enid for the opportunity to stay in your lovely villa ! Geoff & Julia, UK
