The Villa was hard to find at first but easy to navigate once we figured out the directions. There were some great beaches five minutes away from the propery. The beach was protected in windy days, with warm waters and excellent restaurants (Tavernas) nearby. The pool was clean and well maintained. The owner was very responsive with any issues we had. We definetly recommend this property!

                                                                                                      Crete is a lovely place to go on holiday. It is a beautiful island with friendly people, warm sunny weather and plenty to see and do. There is an easy pace of life which also makes it enjoyable to do not very much at all. There are lots of places to eat out and the Cretans are very welcoming to visitors. We stayed 2 weeks in this lovely house and had a fantastic time. The Galanakis family went out of their way to provide us with everything we could have wanted. We received information about the house and car well in advance. Yiannis and his son kindly met us at Heraklion airport, and had pre-arranged our car hire so that there was no waiting around. We followed him to the house where there was raki and a delicious meal waiting, and also enough food in the fridge to keep us going over the weekend. The view of the mountains and village on the neighbouring hill were spectacular from the bedroom and balcony the next morning. The house is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, with a beautiful garden. The pool is bigger than appears in the photographs and we used it well, as the temperature was 29-42 degrees while we were there. Despite the heat we were able to keep comfortable as there is plenty of shade in the garden throughout the day and the air conditioning is very effective - we mainly used it only at night. The situation on the edge of the village means that the house and garden are very private, but the mini market, local pharmacy and main road are only a short drive (1km) away, and there are larger supermarkets not too far away in Chania, which is just over 30 minutes away. We visited several of the places and tavernas recommended by Yiannis but spent much of the time enjoying the pool and garden. It was a real luxury having the house cleaned twice a week and we looked forward to the excellent meals and other tasty gifts given to us by Hariklia, who is a fantastic cook. We would strongly recommend this as a good place to go on holiday, and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. Thank you to the family for making it such an easy place to get away from it all.
