The location between the fields with the wonderful view puts you inevitably in a peaceful state of mind. We were greeted by Tasso and his daughter with traditional food from Crete, a really nice gesture that we appreciate a lot. I totally recommend this great house and i would love to visit it again!

Good country walks on the doorstep, easy driving distance to Chania. The Villa was very clean and all essential needs were provided. We found the people of Crete very helpful and friendly, and very much so enjoyed our visit. Local food produce was fresh and the meals at the local Taverna's we visited were wonderful! A very relaxing atmosphere in the Villa, surrounded by mountain views. A great place to feel away from the 'hussle and bussle' of life. Plenty to do if you like nature and ancient history and good food!
