Outstanding Villa and Pool!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beautifully kept by its lovely, friendly Greek owners, who live locally. They kept us well supplied with fresh produce from their garden - tomatoes, grapes, eggs and home-made Greek food - wonderful hosts!

The pool area is the best we have found, with plenty of shade and comfortable seating areas. The area is very quiet, peaceful and secluded although you will need a car for your whole stay. Perama is about 12 minutes away, for the supermarket and a great bakery (and iced coffees!) whilst Panormo is about 20 minutes away - with excellent tavernas and a lovely atmosphere.

We stayed with our grown-up children and we would all like to come back next year! It really is as good as it looks in the photos!

Lovely poolhouse.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house on beautiful Crete was the setting for a great vacation for our family, consisting of parents and adult children. The house is a bit away from the touristic area on the coast, so it is necessary to have a car, but with a nice pool available it's fine. The house is divided into 3 separate apartments, all fully equipped with among others washing machine. The house and garden are very nice maintained. The hosts lived close by, and they came several times a day to look aftner the pool and garden, and we got several fruits and vegetables from their garden, and delicious Greek food. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful

Séjour extrêmement agréable

  • 5 of 5

Des hôtes très accueillants, à nos petits soins.

Une maison très agréable pour passer des vacances en famille ou avec des couples amis. 3 appartements avec une seule chambre chacun, très bien pour 9 personnes un peu juste pour 12 comme nous l'étions. Mais une grande cuisine/salle à manger permet de faire les repas pour tous. La piscine est bien sûr un must. Tout est extrêmement bien entretenu.

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable en famille. Merci à nos hôtes.

Magnifique villa

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines entre amis dans cette superbe villa complètement adaptée pour recevoir trois familles tout en gardant une indépendance grâce aux appartements bien distincts. Accueillis par les propriétaires très sympathiques et dévoués mais discrets. Très propre avec une piscine très bien entretenue. Au calme, relativement bien située dans l'ile et non loin de quelques commerces et de la plage. Nous vous la recommandons.
