  • A great place to be !
    5 of 5

    We’ve spent 2 weeks in the villa with our 2 sons in July 2018. The villa is spacious, well-furnished and we felt at home during our stay. Everything was quiet and clean. The garden near the pool is a wonderful place to take a nap, read or just dream watching the amazing view. Our sons had a great time playing in the pool. The location is perfect as it was not far from ones of the most beautiful beaches in Crete (Balos, Elafonissi, Falassarba). And a day to walk through the Samaria Gorges is also possible from there. Arianna is a wonderful host : she’s here to help you when needed, gives you tips for places and restaurants. In conclusion, we definitely recommend the place.

  • A perfect location if you want a quiet and relaxing holiday.
    5 of 5

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this lovely house on top of the hill. The location is perfect, very quiet and relaxing. A perfect ‘home from home’ in which to unwind. The clear nights give you fabulous views of the Milky Way while sitting on the balcony, glass of wine in hand. The view during the day is just as good, with the white mountains on one side and the hills and sea on the other. The location is approximately 2-3 miles from the sea and restaurants and bars are a plenty in the resorts if that’s what you want. We tended to buy food from the local supermarkets and prepared most of our own meals at the house as there is every thing that you need in the kitchen in which to do so. The owner is very generous and his dogs were always there to greet you when you came home from a day out. We will certainly miss them. Villa Papoura is also a perfect location from which to explore the western end of Crete. There is so much to see and having a car is a must for this property if you want see the beautiful sights that this part of Crete has to offer This was our first visit to this property and indeed Crete but we will definitely be returning to both. Thank you Dimitris and Fabio for making our holiday so enjoyable.
