Beautiful property with lovely pool and sea view. The house is managed by the hotel across the road who were incredibly helpful. The villa was cleaned and fresh towels every few days. Achlia is a lovely area, less touristy than the north of the island. Would highly recommend cretan cruises to the island of koufonisi. We would definitely go back!

The air con in the bedrooms works well, there's normally a breeze coming off the sea, and the village of Mochlos is lovely. Thoroughly recommended.
