Perfect spot to relax and enjoy Crete

5 of 5
Arriving at Villa Sofas is like stepping back in time. Georgia and Dionysis have created a great little retreat here, with a lovely pool and sunbathing area as well as a beautiful shaded courtyard. Both G & D were very welcoming and nothing is too much for their guests. The Villa is very well appointed with everything you will need for a relaxing stay and a great bathroom! You won't want to get out of the gorgeous bed. There is a bus stop within 5 - 7 minutes walk and the buses are every half hour in both directions, 10 minutes to Platinias and about 30 to Chania depending on traffic. There is a mini market opposite the bus stop and a supermarket around 15 minutes walk so a car is not necessary here. The beach is also a short walk away if you can tear yourself away from the Villa. If you want to visit this area Villa Sofas is the perfect place to stay.

Excellent accomodation and owners

5 of 5
We booked after reading excellent reviews and were not disappointed. The owners could not be more friendly and attentive. On arrival we were greeted with a kitchen table full of fruit, bottle of wine, chocolate and rakki. An amazing welcoming gift. Acomodation had all the character that reflected its age but filled with everything modern you could possibly need from fully equipped kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, bedrooms with comfortable beds. Then outside a pool, seating areas terrace. Nothing was too much to ask and accomodation and pool cleaned frequently throughout the holiday. Thank you you so much Georgia and Dionysus for an amazing holiday. The Phillips family
