On the Beach!

5 of 5
We are lucky enough to travel extensively and get to stay in lots of lovely locations and villas and we all agreed ( two adults and two children 15/12) that this was our favourite villa ever! It's the combination of beach location, fantastic outside spaces, basketball court, table tennis and beautiful pool that did it for us- the house itself became very secondary as you just want to be outside. (The house was lovely too, immaculately clean, well specified with fab a/c. ) What made the holiday even more special was the service we received before and during our stay- Manolis made himself available whenever we had a question and organised an absolutely brilliant day for us sailing along the south west coast in our own boat. We will come back again in years to come.

Great villa and great host!

5 of 5
The villa is absolutely lovely - very comfortable and relaxing to stay in. The pool is beautiful and great to cool off in in the July heat! The villa is also really well located for exploring the western part of Crete and you will certainly not run out of things to do (including visiting the various stunning beaches). Manolis is a brilliant host. He made sure we had everything we needed including helping with arrangements such as a trip to the Samaria gorge and restaurant suggestions etc. Overall we had a fantastic stay and thank you very much to Manolis.
