Cretan perfection

5 of 5
Villa was absolutely beautiful. All the fixtures, towels and little luxuries were excellent. We shared the villa with our good friends and all the children loved the pool, and chilling out around the barbeque. We really couldn't fault it. Thank you so much Joanna and Makis.

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!
