Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This villa gave us everything we needed for a wonderful two weeks on Crete. The location is peaceful with stunning views across the bay, a backdrop of mountains, lovely birdsong and the occasional sound of six goats as they roam around the complex. The villa itself is beautifully laid out and well-furnished, providing plenty of comfortable seating inside and out, in sun or shade, a great barbecue, well-equipped kitchen and great spaces for dining (again inside or out). The pool is a very good size and, again, there is plenty of seating (loungers) and a couple of sun shades around its edge. An excellent selection of food and wine was provided for our arrival and there is lots of information given on the local area and places to eat and visit. The nearby village of Istro has excellent bakers, small supermarkets, pharmacy and so on, and the vibrant town of Agios Nikolaos is not far away with larger supermarkets and a good fishmonger on the main road in. The villa's location is perfect for exploring the eastern part of Crete and there is so much to do and see there. We cannot thank the owners, Jules and Barbara enough for our incredible holiday. They helped with anything we needed (including hiring a car) and responded quickly to any issues (we only had a couple of minor ones). We had a fabulous, thoroughly relaxing and fascinating two weeks and would love to return. Thank you!

Luxurious property in beautiful position

  • 5 of 5

A very special place, with the owner making sure we had everything necessary to enjoy it at its utmost. Will never forget that view or swimming in the lit pool at night.

Luxury villa with stunning sea views

  • 5 of 5

Villa was everything and more that we had hoped it would be.

Villa located on private gated estate with 24 hour management ensuring a total sense of security.

Every single detail has clearly been thought about with meticulous care being taken in the choice of everything which is of a consistently high standard. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped - home from home - it's the first villa we have hired where we haven't had to go to a hypermarket to make purchases. It is also particularly refreshing that the beds, pillows, bed linen and towels were of a very high standard - something that is sadly usually overlooked in most cases of villa hire. Having an extra cleaning service mid-week is also a very nice touch and Barbara, the Villa Manager, and her team are to be congratulated on their high standards.

The outlook was breathtakingly beautiful. The infinity swimming pool was wonderful, directly overlooking the sea. The patio areas, bar-b-que, outdoor dining area and all the outside furnishings were of an exceptional quality. The landscaping, gardens (including a wonderful selection of herbs), the mountains as our backdrop and the steps leading directly down to the sea made this villa everything you could possibly wish for.

Plenty of choice of local restaurants but with Agios Nikolaos only 20 minutes away, you are spoilt for choice for good quality Greek food where the staff are all unbelievably welcoming. Car hire is essential. Only note of caution is that guests with small children would need to take particular care with the stairs/steps and swimming pool areas.

Owner provided excellent service and advice at all times and we couldn't recommend the villa highly enough.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is situated in a very beautiful location - set in the cliffs, overlooking the sea and with far reaching views across the bay. Each room in the villa has windows looking out at this breath-taking panorama. The amenities, furnishing and equipment were of a very high standard and the seating, outdoor facilities and infinity swimming pool were excellent. Jules was a very attentive host, helping ensure we had a lovely holiday. The local restaurants she recommended were all extremely good. The staff at the complex were very kind and helpful too. We had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this beautiful villa.

A beautiful villa in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Perched high on a dramatic cliff, the view from the house is simply

stunning and along with the contemporary architecture and gardens, it must

be one of the coolest holiday homes on the market - really. It's set

within a gated, beautifully landscaped compound with the other houses of

the same architectural style, but otherwise all different. Do ask about

the best local restaurants because we ate at some truly wonderful places

(one in a village in the hills) which were memorable and great value. The

sea at the foot of the steps is great for swimming / snorkelling etc and

if you want a classic beach, the one you can see from the house to your

left is great (really calm when we were there, lovely in the evening). I

don't need to tell you about the house itself, it will all be evident in

the particulars and is as described - lovely. A perfect place for a family

or group holiday. (Melissa + Leo from Oxford, UK)

The villa is situated in a private gated area near Istron with 24 hour security. We are very happy to tailor make trips for you depending on your requirements. We recommend you a hire a car, which we can organise for you by Magical Mystery Tours, a family run car hire business nearby in Istron, they give our guests excellent rate and will meet you at the airport to escort you back to the villa FOC.

Istron has a range of small supermarkets, a bakery and some lovely Tavernas, for a little more night life you might prefer to go into Agios Nikolaus an 8km drive, a taxi can of course be arranged if you want a few drinks. There are many things to do and see around the villa if you can tear yourself away, details at the villa for your perusal.
