Gorgeous private traditional villa!

4 of 5
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Villa Kamaras for a week in June. It was in a quiet area but only a 5 minute car journey to the nearest beach, cafes, restaurants and shops. We also ventured out on a couple of occasions to the town of Chania which has a gorgeous harbor full of restaurants, shops and entertainment. We used a local taxi service on the evenings which were cheap. A car is vital to getting a round the island and to visit some of the more attractive and bigger beaches. The owners are a family who live nearby, George was really friendly and helpful if we needed anything. The garden & pool area was vey spacious and private which we loved. The friendly cleaner came every couple of days to freshen up the towels, bedding and to generally clean the villa. We had a lovely and relaxing holiday and we will definitely be returning for another break away in the near future.

Beautiful

5 of 5
We have stayed in some lovely villas in (mainly) Greek Islands and mainland Greece – with many of them in the Western Crete area too. We have to say, though, that in common with all previous reviews for this Villa - M & M villa is the best we have stayed in, by far. It is a spacious villa in a beautiful location that will not disappoint. The villa is on a large plot on a hillside with great views of the mountains on the right and the sea to the left. - a lovely position and a view we never tired of. Everything worked well and was clearly well-maintained. We kept saying how fortunate we were to have found this property and owner It is exceptionally well equipped – there was nothing in the kitchen that I felt was missing – everything was to hand - and spotlessly clean. The information kept in the villa was comprehensive and really useful. As were the variety of CDs to listen to. The layout of the Villa was such that our party (my husband and myself; and my sister and her husband – all over 60!) had relative privacy in more or less separate accommodation – just coming together on the first floor for meals and drinks over-looking the sea The owner (Manolis) could not have done anything else make our holiday more enjoyable. A welcome meal with Wine and Raki was awaiting us on our arrival, which was wonderful after an early start in the UK. We were also given home-made produce, all of which was absolutely delicious. We were encouraged to pick fresh herbs and a variety of fruit from the beautifully maintained garden; Additionally we were given some Olive Oil (produced from the trees in the grounds), to take home with us. The generous hospitality provided by Manolis was completely unobtrusive and in our experience quite rare. The large pool ranging from one to two metres in depth was fabulous to swim in and always clean (it is a chemical free pool, using salt – a boon for Asthma sufferers). It was cleaned daily early in the morning, and whilst some of our party were up and about at that time – it was maintained in a very unobtrusive manner We were so sorry to leave the villa. We never did get to take the short walk up through the village to see the cave there – guess we’ll just have to come back soon …... Manolis, thank you to you and your co-owner for keeping the place in such a spotless and well-maintained condition. We have no hesitation in recommending M&M Villa to anyone else – it is a special place
