Very lovely cottage in a very well located area

5 of 5
We've just spent 2 weeks in August 2018 on this very pleasant cottage. It is really well located on a small charming village of West North Crete. Near to the main road, you can easily visit north & west of the Island with many interesting touristic area : Chania, monasteries, famous beaches as Fallasarna, Balos & Elafonissi lagoons, Samaria Gorges & others... You have also small villages as Afrata and its small beach and tavern you can go in 15mn by car (with beautifull road mixing montains and sea !) The cottage is very pleasant with the swimming pool, the trees and lots of flowers, beautifull landscape on the village's Church and the montains. The owner of the cottage, Manolis, is a so so so gentle man !! He takes time to give you good bargains to visit the Island, where to eat local food, and also discuss with you about many things as you do with your own friends ! He brought us so much things to eat and drink when we arrived that was so nice to begin our holidays ! Everything is done to feel good as if you were in your own house : you can take directly fresh eggs from the laying hen, you have to drag flowers to take care about it. Two terraces allows you to eat with sun or not. Thanks again for all to Manolis !

This is the best villa that we could have rented. Heaven!

5 of 5
The photos do not do justice to this Villa. The lay out is perfect with many areas to relax and enjoy. These areas offer shade at different times of the day. It is a perfect place for a big family or families sharing. The views over the sea are amazing. The pool was well maintained and the gardens well looked after. The house was very clean and the rooms and spaces very comfortable with air conditioning to keep you comfortable in 35 degree heat. The hospitality was exceptional down to guiding us to the villa at the beginning, finding out about what we wanted of our holiday and then putting together information on restaurants, great beaches to go to and lots of other valuable information. We made pizza in the outside oven which the kids loved. The location was great with a car as you could go to the east south or west as it was near to the national road. Manolis and Costas thank you so much for making our holiday an exceptional holiday. Forget hiring a villa on the beach with all the other tourists. Hire this villa. I can't speak highly enough about the team that look after it and the villa itself.
