                                                                                                    The villa is very well layed out, tastefully decorated and very well equipped with climate control, comfortable beds, storage space, a spacious living area and a kitchen with everything you could need. The outside space really makes it though. There's a small paddling pool and a reasonably sized pool of 1.5m uniform depth which we used every day. Around the pool there is large space with a huge table, plenty of seating and quality sun loungers. There's also a great outside cooking area with huge BBQ and pizza oven. There are views to the mountains and the sea and olive groves all around. We arrived in the evening and straight away experienced the warmth and hospitality of the Cretan people, right from the people in the car hire place (a car is essential), to our host Georgos who was attentive, considerate and an all round gentleman with a lovely family. We got a bit lost when we arrived in the village and he even came out to look for us. The village is a 10 minute walk down hill from the villa and we loved Kamilari. It's pretty, has an authentic, natural feel and the people are friendly. There is a small supermarket and several nice restaurants and tavernas of which our favourite is 'Melonas', which served great value, nice food, most of which is produced locally on the owners farm. There are plenty of things to do nearby. We headed into the mountains to the place where the local spring water is produced (Zaros) and there's a 2km walk to a monastery which our 5 year old managed easily enough. The beaches of Kalamaki and Kommos are a very short drive (Kommos had waves big enough for surfing) but we like Matala where the sea was still and you could dive off the rocks of the Neolithic caves which were used as tombs by Romans and more recently, rooms for hippies in the 70s including Joni Mitchell. The town still retains a bit of a hippy vibe! The smaller roads in the south can be a little rough if you want to get off the beaten track. We were glad to have hired a 4x4 but you can get around fine without one. All in all a great villa which we would highly recommend and to which we hope to return. The temperature was 26 in the day (2nd week of October) and still warm in the evenings for outdoor dining. Kalimari and the surrounding area was just what we wanted, plenty to do but quiet and relaxed.

The villas in the south of the island will take just over an hours drive from Heraklion. Roads are basic and windy and hiring a car is essential for this trip and any additional exploring you may do. Do visit Matala and see the caves made famous by Joni Mitchell. A complex of three independent villas sharing a sizable pool. Villas sleep four and can be booked individually or complete for exclusive use. Each villa named after Greek mythology is individually decorated and contains all mod cons expected from a luxury self catering villa... there is an exclusive outdoor terrace (two of which are shaded) and balconies from the bedrooms on the first floor of each of the villas. You are welcomed by the multi lingual, friendly and helpful Heike who points you in the right direction on how to use all the appliances. She points out the welcome pack of Cretan Wine and Water a refreshing start to the vacation after your flight, ferry and or drive. Kitchen has full sized oven, hob, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Bathroom holds the washing machine also an outdoor dryer to hang washing. Downstairs loo and upstairs bathroom with shower. All beautifully appointed. The bedrooms have lots of storage and spare pillows and duvets if required. Pool towels are provided and there is a mid week laundry change and clean. Bathroom soap dishes are full and toilet roll is there however replacements during your stay is your responsibility (ideally essentials like this in luxurious rentals would be covered by the owners rather than guests... they did replace for us) Air Conditioning will work while doors and windows are closed. If open I recommend using the screens to avoid the irritating mosquitos from entering. Sivas is the most traditional Cretan village, perfect and non commercial over the hill to the right where you will find four tavernas, mini supermarket as well as a ceramic shop and more. It can be busy with tourists from surrounding area. Food is traditional and we never had a bad meal... English is widely spoken and understood. The local drink unlike other Greek Islands is not Ouzo but Raki a very nice Brandy like drink placed on your table like a condiment at the start of your meal and your taverna owner will produce a shot of Raki at the end of your meal. Definitely returning!
