It has just been modernized almost throughout to a very high standard. The basement rooms had not been done when we stayed, but everywhere else had it was clean, modern and it was evident that a lot of care had been taken. The photos do not do it justice. As we were traveling with small children my only slight concern was the children's play area, although you could see the swing, slide etc was not old they had started to deteriorate in the heat of Crete, and especially at the top of the slide, the little ones had to go down it on a towel other wise it could have nipped their legs. We had a Yoga lesson and a Tai massage by the lovely Mireille, I would highly recommend her. The owners were welcoming, and the few things we needed were addressed quickly. We would go back and we recommend the villa. it was our first holiday to Crete and we absolutely loved it. Rethymno is a short drive away, and it was about an hours drive from the airport.

Our stay was lovely and everyone was very accommodating to ensure we had a lovely holiday. The owners were lovely people and couldn't do enough to ensure we were comfortable. A car is essential as the property was very remote. Overall a very enjoyable stay.
