Siamo appena rientrati da una stupenda vacanza a creta, stupenda oltre che per i fantastici posti anche per la fantastica casa che abbiamo trovato.
Appena arrivati siamo stati accolti calorosamente dal proprietario che nonostante non parlasse italiano o inglese aveva al seguito un traduttore c'ha ci ha tradotto ogni cosa...
La casa era stupenda, dotata di ogni confort possibile, dal microonde alla lavatrice, la piscina stupenda ci ha regalato bellissimi momenti assieme al barbecue nuovo di zecca. I proprietari hanno provveduto a far pulire e controllare la piscina e far pulire le camere da personale addetto. Avevamo a disposizione asciugamani puliti a volontà sia per la casa che per piscina, all'arrivo abbiamo trovato in ogni porzione di casa bottiglie di vino e prodotti tipici. Per qualunque cosa i proprietari sono stati sempre disponibili e gentilissimi.
La vacanza non poteva andare meglio, casa veramente consigliatissima sia per grandi famiglie che per gruppi di amici come noi
The property is very well maintained and nicely decorated . We were warmly welcomed and recovered good.
Many thanks for everything.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié nos 2 semaines au sein de la villa. Nous étions seuls et avons profité de la superbe vue qui repose énormément. La piscine est extra et les propriétaires très sympathiques. Nous avons très bien dormi également, très bonne literie. Nous n'étions pas très loin de la mer (Panormos à 15 minutes). Les plages ne sont pas extraordinaires à proximité mais nous avions trouvé une plage sympa à moins d'une heure (Georgipolis). Nous avons aussi loué une chambre d'hôtel pour voir les belles plages de l'Ouest.
Bref, notre séjour a été très agréable et nous recommandons cette villa ainsi que les services de Homelidays (second année que nous passons par eux) Valia est extrêmement à l'écoute et aux petits soins avant notre arrivée et même des messages pendant notre séjour.
