It is fair to say our concerns were completely unnecessary as the villa was exactly as the pictures showed, if not better. Beautiful views, lovely clean villa with everything that we needed. Someone came in every day to clean, remove rubbish etc which we didn't expect and the pool was cleaned regularly too. I cannot emphasise enough how much we enjoyed our stay here. The service was faultless and Ioannis was really friendly and helpful. The only negative I would make is that a car is most definitely needed. We had hoped that Plakias would be in walking distance but with two children, it definitely wasn't. Having said that, it definitely will not put us off coming back. Plakias has everything that you need, and there is loads to see in the surrounding areas. One of the most enjoyable holidays we have had.

The apartment was incredibly clean, everything was working and both the agency and the owner where extremely helpful when we needed them! Thank you for the roses, my wife loved them, and thank you for all the info provided on the island, it was the first time for us in Crete and we do want to come back! Again thank you Eleanna and Valia!

The location is jaw-dropping with quite the best views being from the pool, sitting room or the bath in the master bedroom. The shaded eating area outside the kitchen, beside the pool, is a joy and the nearby village (easily walkable) has excellent restaurants (try Elia) and a good supermarket. Tempted to stay put and luxuriate for the whole stay, we managed to explore the nearby beaches and unbelievable rocky gorges. We’ll be back!
