Great location, very clean pool but need a better barbecue and equipment.

  • 4 of 5

We have had a very enjoyable stay at Villa Mylo. The villa and pool were very clean and we loved having fresher sheets and towels and someone to clean mid week. The location is great, would definitely recommend the Meterizi restaurant in Kefalas, especially with the live music on Friday nights. We also particularly loved the views from the villa.

We would recommend for future visitors to leave a welcome pack with milk, water, bread (the basics) and a few suggestions of what to do in the region. Also we would have quite liked a better barbecue and utensils.

Things we would recommmend to do in the local area:

- Lake Kournas with pedalos

- Samaria Gorge walk

- Quad biking in Georgiopolis

- Chania day trip (remember swimsuits to go snorkelling on boat trip!)

- Elafonisi beach (but beware very long journey and very crowded so not really worth it)

Overall, this has been a great holiday and we would thoroughly recommend staying at Villa Mylo.

Perfect family villa with pool

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the villa was fantastic. Loads of space inside for a family (2 adults and 3 over-18's) and with the pool area immediately outside the large kitchen the usable space is massive. Arrived at the villa to find it just as in the photos. Spotlessly clean. Located in quiet village but two very good Taverna's within 2 min walk along with mini-market. Village is set on a hill so views to the sea from the pool area and the first floor terrace. Handy garage for parking. Short drive to either Almyrida or Giorgiopolous for lovely clean beaches, clear water and seafront cafes. Can't recommend highly enough.

A Cretan experience.

  • 5 of 5

0ur group of four had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Villa Mylo. It is a very well constructed villa with excellent facilities. The outside area with the pool was greatly used. The pool maintenance with the clarity of the water was one of the best we have encountered over many years visiting different countries.

There was a thorough cleaning of the villa prior to and during our stay, with beds changed regularly by a very helpful and lovely staff member. When we encountered a problem with the door lock, it was professionally fixed the next day.

Cooking facilities and equipment was generally excellent - although some new thick based frying pans / small saucepans and a decent barbecue are needed.

We greatly appreciated the Air Conditioning in the upper floor bedroom and were surprised to find it hadn't been included in the lower floor bedroom, especially at the height of Summer.

On many evenings,we made great use of the Meterizi Taverna, which was within walking distance of the Villa. Their Friday night Greek evening with two excellent guitarists will long stay in our memories.

A car is essential to explore part of this region. The secure garage built below the swimming pool was a bonus.

A very enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

Perfect retreat, central to best towns

  • 5 of 5

The position of the villa is perfect, in a village with some life, courtesy of the two tavernas, but in a quiet location off the main drag. Nearby is the town of Vamos, where a local tourist organization will help you get in touch with the authentic Crete, from cheesemaking to cooking to hammering out goat bells by hand. A little further is Rethymno, a charming port town that we preferred to Chania. The villa itself is comfortable and quite well stocked wh kitchen ware if you'd like to cook, and a barbecue too. The pool is greatly appreciated on hot days, ideal for a cool-off after an outing. Roula, who cleans the place, and Leonidas who takes care of any technical problems with the house (we had very low water pressure one day) are very friendly and responsive. And if you need more information about local life or happenings, Spiros at the mini mart and Maddie at the taverna are also friendly and happy to chat. We would definitely stay here again; love Crete, love Kefalas, love Villa Mylo.

Lovely villa with lots of character in quiet village location

  • 4 of 5

Villa Mylos is a lovely, well-equipped old house in a quiet village. We received a warm welcome from Roula: she showed us around and explained things. The sea view from the balcony is great and from nearby in the village you get a stunning view of the White Mountains. There is a good restaurant within walking distance, and also a cafe and two mini-markets. The village streets are very narrow and tortuous, so do not hire a large car! However, the villa has a large, cool garage for parking. The water supply was a bit erratic, ranging from feeble to non-existent, but you always have a pool full of water for use in an emergency!

We only swam in the pool once, because when we came home in the evenings it was usually too cold, but it is lovely.

There were a lot of other English people in the area - whether this is good or bad is entirely a matter of opinion!

If you like walking, the Tourist Office in Vamos can provide information on local walks.
