                                                          A Fabulous Week

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          Villa Mary lived up to expectations - especially the pool and 5 a side pitch, which kept the children entertained for hours. Stelios and Maria made us feel very welcome and their food was excellent.....so was their home made wine and raki! Well placed for exploring the island (Chania and Heraklion about an hour away) but equally good for staying in and chilling. Arkadi Monastry is just 15 mins away and definitely worth a visit. Overall excellent.

                                                          Fantastic.

                                                          The garden was real great, with sun and shade and a nice big pool. The Villa was also perfect, however, you could not sleep on the couch, but they promised that in future would be resolved. Internet was also perfect. A fantastic experience. We'd like to recommend this
