Two pools were well maintained and cleaned regularly. Our daughters, 12 and 9 enjoyed all the facilities and truly didn't want to leave. The only two criticisms would be the main bedroom mattress which we found very hard and a lack of smaller saucepans in the kitchen. Apart from that we were thrilled. Having access to bikes was wonderful and use of a PC an added bonus. Keep doing what you do! Thank you for making our holiday so memorable.

Good country walks on the doorstep, easy driving distance to Chania. The Villa was very clean and all essential needs were provided. We found the people of Crete very helpful and friendly, and very much so enjoyed our visit. Local food produce was fresh and the meals at the local Taverna's we visited were wonderful! A very relaxing atmosphere in the Villa, surrounded by mountain views. A great place to feel away from the 'hussle and bussle' of life. Plenty to do if you like nature and ancient history and good food!

Manolis, and his family are the kindest hosts we've ever experienced. The villa is beautiful, it's clean, well equipped, well looked after and beautifully located. The pool is a very welcome treat after a long day exploring the beautiful island of Crete. We were welcomed with lots of lovely fresh fruit, eggs, honey, raki and yoghurt. Manolis gave us the lowdown on great places to explore and eat, every one was a winner and we were very warmly welcomed at all the restaurants/tavernas he suggested. We had visits from an owl, we regularly saw birds of prey flying and hunting over head. The villa's located near to the E65, main road and there's easy access to plenty of local shops for your sundries. All in all this was a beautiful experience and I can't recommend it enough. We've already booked another stay there next year.
