Наш выбор пал на Ириду виллу так как были все удобства для отдыха с ребёнком и что ещё не мало важно это наличие услуги подогрева бассейна . Забронировав эту виллу мы связались с владельцем Михалисом и были приятно уделены так как его супруга Ирина говорит на русском языке. С этого момента Ирина сделала наш отпуск максимально комфортным. Нас встретил трансфер в аэропорту, который она же организовала , предоставила нам все необходимое для нашего 10-ти месячного ребёнка , даже написала списки магазинов где покупать продукты питания для нашего малыша. Любая наша просьба выполнялась в кратчайшие сроки. Мы очень благодарны за столь теплый приём и мгновенную реакцию на все наши просьбы это была колоссальная помощь, а особенно учитывая то, что Ирине нужно было заботиться о своём 3-х месячном малыше. Что касается виллы то можем сказать, что дом ещё лучше чем на фото. Он намного больше и очень чистый, что для нас было важно. Так же владельцы построили огромную обеденную зону с барбекю, где мы проводили все наши вечера, это был для нас так же приятный сюрприз так как на момент нашего бронирования у них не было фото с барбекю зоной. Мы наслаждались тишиной и покоем находясь на вилле , это был просто Рай после шумного города. Мы обязательно вернёмся в это место ещё раз как только запланируем наш отпуск в Грецию.

The villa was very conveniently situated about 10 minutes walk from the beaches in Chernosossis and 15 minutes from Koutouloufari where there's a huge choice of restaurants. The villa itself was very modern with good facilities for 6 people. Given the time of year, we paid for pool heating which meant that we were able to enjoy the pool during the entire holiday even when the weather cooled down. The last week in October was very much the end of the holiday season in Crete so there were less facilities open than in the summer but the sea was warm enough to swim in. I think we would find Crete too crowded in the summer but in October it was an excellent chance to see the sites and enjoy the beaches in relative calm. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa as a place to stay and would also recommend Crete in October for families who like mixing beach fun with sightseeing.
