My Husband and I enjoyed our vacation at Villa Maro. Kefalas is full of history. We enjoyed the local restaurants and loved that we were able to find Bio-organic food and vegetables at the local super market. In order to learn more about this town and its history we advice to rent a car. We will see you again Vila Maro...........

We had an excellent holiday and would recommend Agni Travel to our friends and family if asked, village of Kefalas is lovely, may just need a car if wanting to tour around the island. Tavernas and mini markets very friendly. Just a lovely place to relax which we did .
One week in Kefalas
The villa is lovely and clean, pool excellent and a nice size, close to bars and mini markets,a couple of minor points:- maybe plastic glasses for drinks round the pool area, car essential for touring the island, even though taxis are quiet cheap, and knowing we had a 21month old infant we thought she would be provided for without having to ask for a high chair and cot but we coped, location wise the views are amazing we would recommend this villa if asked.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Maro. Arriving tired and late at night, we got misled by Google Maps incorrect location of Villa Maro in Kefalas but Maddy in the local taverna pointed us in the right direction. We should have followed the driving instructions! Everything in the villa was as expected with a few nice welcome items. I would say it is nicer and bigger than the pictures show, especially the lovely garden below the pool. We did have an issue with the aircon in one bedroom, which Agni helped fix reasonably quickly. A car is a must unless you plan to stay in the nice, sleepy village of Kefalas for your whole stay.
Villa Maro is situated in Kefalas on the Greek island of Crete. Kefalas is a traditional 800 year old village with a large number of historic buildings from Venetian and other times, some beautifully restored, others in ruins. It is quiet village with a 'Platia', shaded by beautiful old trees, a couple of tavernas and two supermarkets. The supermarkets are small, but with all the essentials - one of them sells bio-organic food and vegetables. Locals say that there nearly 30 churches in the village, most of which are from the time of the Turkish occupation, when land would not be confiscated by the Turkish rulers if there was a church on its grounds!
Vamos is a historic village set within scenic hills and due to its strategic location many battles have taken place there. The village is a delightful mix of traditional architecture with many now restored with several interesting Churches. The highlights are the excellent village Tavernas and Kafenions.
Almirida, a tiny village around a small sandy cove with miniature port. It is famous not just for the amazing soft sand, but also for the fine handmade glass that is made from it, using traditional techniques. The beach, quaint tavernas and bars means Almirida should be on your 'must visit' list for Crete.
Kokkino Horio is inland of Almirida and is where you can visit the interesting caves and tunnels that were constructed by the Germans during the occupation of Crete (1941-45). The location was also used in the 1964 film 'Zorba the Greek' starring Antony Quinn.
Kalyves is a pretty coastal village with a wide selection of shops, tavernas and bars including a cooper's workshop. The highlight though, is the beautiful sandy beachfront and harbour. The beach has been awarded a 'Blue' flag denoting its clean state and safe water. Kalyves has a friendly atmosphere and is perfect for children.
Georgioupolis is a former fishing village by the western end of the bay of Rethymnon. Recently, the old fishing port was extended to accommodate a small marina and the landmark of Georgioupolis is a tiny white-washed chapel at the end of a jetty. Within the village and around the port are numerous tavernas and bars where you can absorb the local atmosphere as it has been enjoyed over the ages.
