The villa's contemporary design is tasteful and charming and has been well thought out with balconies and seating areas offering breathtaking views down to the sea over the surrounding olive groves or up to the imposing backdrop of the White Mountains . Shade is provided for those who need to hide from the Cretan sun while also allowing plenty of access to the sun worshippers by the pool. It would be possible to spend a tranquil holiday up here on the hill top surveying the delightful rural surroundings, relying on local tavernas to supply evening meals,without venturing any further afield. Yet an easy and pleasant walk along the rural road through olive groves and fruit trees will take one to the buzz of Platanias where restaurants , bars and all sorts of tourist amenities await those who might like to dance the night away .And Chania itself with culture, good restaurants and some serious shopping is only a 15 minute drive away .A great stay - we will definitely be back !

The owners were always present on site and were very welcoming and friendly, always ready to help and answer any questions. We would recommend trying the food served in the bar, in our opinion it was was equal to, if not better than, that served in local tavernas. They were able to arrange taxis for us to and from the airport and motorbike and car hire delivered to the door! There are lots of beaches nearby and the nearby city of Xania is well worth a visit or two.
