We had the most wonderful holiday in Crete, probably our best yet! The villa was ideal for our family of 5. It was set in very peaceful surroundings and in the lovely village of Kefalas where everyone was so welcoming. We ate at both restaurants frequently and enjoyed both. Maddies was very relaxed and we enjoyed the live Greek music at the restaurant above the Inka shop. The lady running the shop was lovely and so helpful too.
The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. There was plenty of room around the pool for sun beds. The pool was such a welcome relief when we returned from days out and also to cool you down during the hot days. The air conditioning was great too.
The views from the villa were just amazing. I would jump out of bed in the morning and just go and sit out there on my own and enjoy the scenery and peace and quiet. Just perfect.
For us the villa was ideal, it was within driving distance to lots of fabulous places to visit, including beaches. Our favourite two being Kalives and Alymirda.
We had great communication from the owner too.
We will definitely be booking to stay here again and have recommended it to family & friends.
Everything we needed was provided. The location was good. Georgioupoli was just the right size resort. Large enough to have several tavernas and bars to choose from at night and shops covering most needs. The house is about 1 mile outside of town, up the hill so good views down to the bay from the balcony. The road carries very light traffic, and nothing much at night at all. The location is a bit too far out of town to walk in easily in the evenings, and the road , altho quiet, is very dark and a bit dangerous for late night walking back from town. We used the car, parking not an issue in town.
We were able to explore quite a lot of Crete while there, Heraklion, Chania, Rethymno, Aptera, many Minoan and Roman/Greek ruins. Knossos, Phaestos on the south coast. A nice trip up the Imros gorge and a lovely walk. The Lassithi plateau. Minoan Tombs etc.
