Comfortable vacation villa in beautiful nature

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fortnight vacation time in September 2016 in AORI hillside villa. The holiday villa is located in a beautiful lonely mountainous landscape. Surrounded by purely nature there is an entire quiet atmosphere. Designed and equipped with comfortable furniture and technical facilities the villa met completely our demands. Welcome and extraordinary hospitality and care during our stay by Anastasia and Vassilis was appreciated and needs to be emphasized. The picturesque and green Western region of Crete provided an multitude of leisure and excursion possibilities .

AORI Villa can be highly recommended.

Anastasia and Vassilis, let us thank you again.
