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 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!

It was perfect! We had the sea view apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well sized and had a wonderful sea view. Xristina and her husband were available if needed and often dropped products from their farm. The location of the apartment was ideal and we will definitely be staying here again. This holiday was our 7th year visiting Crete and we found the location and apartment perfect for what we wanted from the holiday. Excellent holiday, excellent apartment, excellent location.
