The views are phenomenal - not conducive to leaving the property! Fortunately it's only a 10 minute walk to the town and the beach for a refreshing swim. We enjoyed BBQing our tea with a mountain view, and hope to be back in future. Jen and Chris

Set just above the small village of Plaka with views of Spinalonga and the rocky hills, it is a place of peace and tranquility yet only a ten minute walk to good restaurants. We loved sitting in the jacuzzi and the pool was perfect for cooling off and a little exercise. There are five sun loungers and with the use of the large parasol, we were always able to find shade when we needed it. The villa is well equipped and the bedrooms have ample storage. We were glad of the air conditioning in the bedroom but on some nights just slept with the breeze coming in. It is beautifully kept by the managers of the property who are very kind and helpful. It is definitely somewhere we would enjoy going back to.
