Modern, well-equipped villa in Crete

  • 4 of 5

Aris and Marina made us very welcome in their home. The villa is obviously lived in as a family home and we were encouraged to use it as such. We visited in the first week of July and it was quite windy which helped with the very warm weather during the day although the nights were quite uncomfortable - we ended up buying a cheap fan for the main bedroom as it was the only one without one.

The views from the house are beautiful and the pool was a welcome addition. Aris came over a few times to clean it and check we were happy and he was always on the end of a whatsapp to help with any queries.

Skalani is a small village close to Heraklion and definitely not a tourist area which was great for us. The local taverna, a short walk from the villa, served amazing barbecues at an equally amazing price!

We hired a large people carrier but, in retrospect, it might have been wiser to get two smaller cars as the roads are very narrow, steep and windy. That being said, it was quite easy to find our way around - once we had worked out how to leave the village - ignore the one way cut through! Knossos and Heraklion are a few minutes drive and there are numerous vineyards in the area. The aquarium is also worth a visit and the boys went to the waterpark which was pricey but they enjoyed it.

Overall a relaxing holiday. Thank you.
