The property is beautifully furnished and contains everything you could need to enjoy your holiday, even down to a fully stocked medicine box they have thought of everything.

What fabulous,warm hospitality! It's a sharp turn off the National Road to get to Adele, so it's worth checking the route on Google Earth especially if you are due to arrive in the dark. Everything at the Villa is run efficiently and well: the housekeeper arrives regularly, the pool is cleaned out and we even saw the gardener on our last day. The pool is a welcome addition and there is enough shade surrounding the terrace to provide a welcome relief from the intense summer sun. We enjoyed living amongst the locals and bought locally produced olive oil, bread and fish to cook on the BBQ from the corner shop and mini market just outside the village. Whilst you do need a car, it's not far from the plethora of beaches and bays and other local attractions. The furthest we travelled to was Phaistos and Aghia Triada which we thought were archaelogical gems and we also explored the Armari Valley with its spectacular mountain ranges, natural water springs and scenery, stopping off for lunch at a traditionalTaverna tucked away in one of the mountain villages. Moni Arkadi, was a memorable visit with its turbulent history and we had a memorable lunch at the Faragi mountain Taverna whilst our daughter was kept amused in their garden playground. Rethymnon and Xania are great towns to explore with their shops, ports and architecture. Try a Rethymnon beer too! We had a relaxing summer holiday yet enjoyed exploring this part of this area of Crete. Thank you
