If you are looking for an authentic trip to Crete, this is the place for you. If you are lucky and it’s still available, our recommendation is to book immediately. After reading the great reviews our expectations were high – but they were far exceeded. The villa and area are stunning, but it is really the people that make this place magical. Manolis, the house owner, is kindhearted, knowledgeable and respectful and he made us feel like friends right from the start. Upon arrival, Manolis welcomed us at the house and took some good time to introduce us to the house, give suggestions on dinner locations for the night and first excursion possibilities. We appreciated this highly! We never felt pushed to follow any of the suggestions, but we were always glad when we did, as the tips are spot on. Every few days Manolis would check in on us and make sure that we had a great time and everything we needed. He also prepared a five-page document giving tips on places to see and where to eat. For us this was very handy, as it took the pressure of researching ourselves and it had a good mix of popular highlights in the region and off-the-beaten path destinations. We visited in October and were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed 14 days of sunshine with temperatures around 25 degrees. As we visited in the off-season, we basically had the beautiful beaches at Balos, Elafonissos and Phalasarna to ourselves. A swim in the pool or ocean was extremely enjoyable and we did so every day. The region is beautiful with diverse beaches, the most spectacular olive groves as far as the eye can see, gorgeous mountains and gorges and the most welcoming and friendly people you can imagine. We also loved to stay at the villa. Especially the morning and early afternoon are spectacular; you see the sun coming up behind the white mountains and the view over the olive groves down to the beaches of Kolymbari is breathtaking. We spent hours gazing, looking at the birds of prey circling in the air over the hundreds of olives trees surrounding the villa. The villa has a traditional feel and is very homely, equipped with everything you may need or want. The housekeeper Eleni comes twice a week and makes sure that the house is spotless clean. She is very friendly and took extremely good care of us. Our favorite meals were with Petros in Vassilopoulo (I could have eaten here every day, but they are only open in the weekends during off-season), the home-cooked
