A delightful villa

5 of 5
We travelled with our daughters young family (1 girl aged 3 and 1 girl aged 6 months) and our other daughter and had a really relaxing time. The villa was clean tidy and well appointed. It was within very easy driving distance to the local town, several beaches and the slightly more lively town of Matala, We were welcomed by Georgia, the owner, who met us in the local town, Pitsidia to show us the way. there was a welcome gift of cakes fruit and olive oil and wine which we appreciated. The pool was a little cold, next time we will come a week or two later but big enough to swim in. The barbeque area has an outdoor sink making to easy to clean. All in all our first foray into Crete was a great success and we would recommend this villa and its position. It took about 60 mins to drive from Iraklion airport so not a long journey and very easy driving as little traffic on the roads; may be different in the height of summer though!

Cretan holiday

5 of 5
Agia Galini is a lovely village and the apartment is near the tavernas and bars. The apartment was well equipped and nicely decorated and very clean. It is situated on a road with steps without traffic. We had a great time and can't wait to go back again!
