The villa is large, the pool really warm and the sea is just at the end of the garden. We had a once in a lifetime experience watching rare loggerhead turtles hatch on the beach right at the end of the garden - INCREDIBLE.

                                                                                                Really delivers what it says on the packet!

                                                                                                5 of 5

The house is huge, the layout such that larger groups feel they can have individual space. Facilities are great. Cleaning service every 3 days adds a bit of extra luxury. Markos is one of the best villa hosts we have ever come across and we have stayed in quite a few villas in several countries. Our family spent hours in the pool. Easy to spend a whole day at "home" without getting bored, but also easy to get out and about sight-seeing. You do need a car though, and the entrance to the property is "off track" so no conducive to easily walking out at night. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone.

Indeed they are! We all had a wonderful week in this luxurious villa, celebrating a 50th birthday as a highlight during our stay. Thanks to the property owner Loukia, who organised a special surprise for the jubilant with a cake and local musicians to play for us, we had the most memorable day. We can just recommend this place to groups who are looking for a more unique experience during their stay in Crete, away from the hustle and bustle of hotels. This location of the place made us feel that we were further away from the touristy atmosphere, and offered a tranquility that was invaluable to us. We definitely would like to come back to visit again.
