Great villa and great host!

5 of 5
The villa is absolutely lovely - very comfortable and relaxing to stay in. The pool is beautiful and great to cool off in in the July heat! The villa is also really well located for exploring the western part of Crete and you will certainly not run out of things to do (including visiting the various stunning beaches). Manolis is a brilliant host. He made sure we had everything we needed including helping with arrangements such as a trip to the Samaria gorge and restaurant suggestions etc. Overall we had a fantastic stay and thank you very much to Manolis.

Long term let

4 of 5
We recently had a 2 month stay in this apartment. Kathy and Chris could not have been more friendly or helpful what wonderful hosts. We found the apartment very clean and comfortable, especiallly the sofa and the bed and the kitchen was a bonus as we like to self cater as well as eat out. The position of the apartment afforded wonderful views of the mountains and the valley and beautiful sunrises. It was very convenient for shops, tavernas and beaches. The local taverna next to the pharmacy in Agio Pantes served excellent fresh food just 5 minute drive. Would recommend the apartment for a short or long stay holiday.
