It is located in a small village with beautiful views of the olive groves, sea and mountains. The property is extremely well equipped and Manos is an attentive and truly welcoming host. All the advertised features provide a taste of luxury and it is so good to find fresh fruit, olive oil, wine and coffee already provided. Our stay was quiet, peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. The pool is a great asset and wonderful to cool off in! The local Taverna is a short walk and provides excellent choices of food in a shaded terrace. There is a local shop which sells almost everything you might need and Kolymvari has a supermarket and many seaside restaurants, bars and shops, plus a nearby pebble beach. Manolis also provided a contact for car hire which proved very reasonable. The only disappointment was that we could not stay longer!! Thank you Manos!

The location was perfect for us- quiet but with easy access to Chania and a range of interesting sights. The kitchen was by far the best equipped we have ever stayed in but we didn't use it as much as expected because there were so many good tavernas around including the nearest, the atmospheric Drakiana. Michael was exceptionally welcoming, kind and helpful and the excellent (and up to date) information provided enabled us to enjoy much more of the area than would have otherwise been possible in the two weeks. Many many thanks and hopefully we can return before long
