The property was spacious inside and out, immaculate and well equipped. Great views!

  • 4 of 5

We visited from the UK with our two kids 4 and 7. The location of the property is beautiful with rugged hills and a view of the sea to the north. It is a quiet location with other houses and holiday villas dotted around. The road running by is well used but not at all busy. It is quite close to the beach and village but not really easily walkable with smaller children so we mostly drove down the hill to the shops/restaurants and beaches. We were very impressed with the villa and how big it was. We visited in early April so the inside could be chilly but heaters in the lounge and bedrooms was effective. It was a real welcome bonus for the housekeeper to visit twice during our stay - though I should have asked when they would come as we were lazing around when they arrived! The pool was also a bit chilly to swim in for long at this time of year, which was a shame but we did get a couple of hotter days which warmed up the water nicely and the kids were happy to splash in the toddler pool most evenings. Really great to see the pool being cleaned twice during our stay.

The downside of this property is that the pool is closely over-looked by the front doors and patios of two properties. The families living there can only access their houses through the pool area and though we all said a cheery 'hello' when they passed through, it did not feel at all private as the listing had suggested. All in all though our stay was lovely and very comfortable. Our hosts were attentive, helpful and available on text or e.mail if we needed anything. We loved Crete and enjoyed exploring.

Beautiful villa with lovely views.

Wonderful stay in this very large well equipped villa. There are terraces on all sides giving amazing views across the mountains and the beautiful bay of Bali. Plenty of space inside and out for dining.

Perfect relaxing fortnight

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked into the villa after a late night arrival we felt at home. The kitchen was well equipped, everything spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.

The pool and outside space was great for our family, my favourite area was the upstairs terrace, beautiful views and a great spot to catch the last of the evening sun (with a glass of ouzo!)

A short (approximately 15-20 minute) walk into the resort of Bali on most days to sample the local restaurants, although just 5 minutes away was a great family run taverna. A hire car is a must to explore the beautiful, dramatic island of Crete. I'm already planning our next visit.

Schönes Haus mit vielen Terrassen!

  • 5 of 5

Bei unserem Urlaub auf Kreta haben wir 14 Tage in der Villa Argyro übernachtet.

Trotz anfänglicher Zweifel haben wir das Haus, dank Navi, schnell gefunden.

Wir wurden freundlich von Kostas empfangen. Nach einer kurzen Besichtigung konnte der Urlaub beginnen.

Auch schon im Vorfeld lief alles sehr unkompliziert ab.

Die Villa hat sechs Terrassen, teilweise sind sie überdacht. So kann man früh im Schatten frühstücken und nachmittags oder abends

sich sonnen. Besonders schön war der Ausblick auf die Bucht oder die Berge.

Alle drei Tage wurden die Handtücher und Bettwäsche gewechselt und das Haus gereinigt. Wlan Anschluss, Waschmaschine, Geschirrspüler... alles war vorhanden. In einem Reiseführer (deutsch) und zwei Bücher über Flora und Fauna der Region haben wir öfter nachgeschlagen, denn auf unseren Wanderungen haben wir so manche uns unbekannte Pflanze entdeckt.

Ein Auto ist allerdings von Vorteil, bis Bali läuft man ca. 20 min. In diesem kleinen Ort sind mehrere Tavernen, Geschäfte, Bäcker usw zu finden.

Am alten Hafen hat es uns besonders gut gefallen!

Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt und würden unseren Urlaub auf Kreta jederzeit wieder in der Villa Argyro verbringen!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Gastfreundschaft und alles Gute!

Schöner Aufenthalt in Bali

  • 4 of 5

Große, wertige Wohnung, mit toller Küche und viel Platz außerhalb von Bali mit schönem Pool und herrlichem Ausblick. Kostas war sehr bemüht um uns und alles war sehr flexibel.

Uns hat zu 5 Sternen lediglich gefehlt: Duschen ohne Halterung, sehr harte Matratzen und im Vergleich zum Rest unterdurchschnittliches Besteck.

Wir fanden den Aufenthalt aber insgesamt toll.

Villa Argyro is located 15 minutes away, on foot, from Bali village which was a small fishing village, but over the years has become a charming touring village, overlooking the little fishing harbour and the sea. It is a very attractive and romantic place, combining sea and mountains. Life is easy going enjoying the sun and the clear calm sea at a number of sandy and shingly beaches. Bali is a modern seaside resort, which offers a large choice of taverns ,restaurants, a bakery, an ATM machine, super markets, a butchery and cheese shop, as well as a wide variety of little shops, diving school, bars and discos. 

Bali is accessible from any part of the island. It is ideal for family and romantic holidays. Bali has four beaches, which are formed in sandy coves with nice greenish waters. The beaches are almost always calm, since the direction of Bali is western. They all are suitable for children and well organised. Moreover, buses from Heraklion and Rethymnon run to Bali.  Furthermore, from the local harbour, excursion boats run daily to Rethymnon. The passengers have the chance to admire a unique coastline with beautiful caves and rock formations.

Also Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, 10 minutes away by car and well know for its sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds, umbrellas. Water sports are also available.Even further to the east, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkeling.

The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.

Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.
