About Terry Lacey
Terry & Joanne Lacey. Why did we chose Crete? 300+ days of sunshine! Crete is the biggest of the Greek Islands, so plenty of places to see and things to do, or just chill out around the pool.
Terry Lacey purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Terry Lacey chose Agios Nikolaos Municipality
A beautiful location with stunning views. Villa was built to our design.

Great villa with wonderful views and fantastic pool
A lovely villa with a great pool and wonderful views. Excellent local tavernas and seafront within 5 minute drive. Well placed for trips to Minoan sites, beaches , water parks etc.Hosts Terry and Jo could not be more helpful and great meet and greet service from the airport.
It is a fantastic villa owned by a fantastic couple Terry and Jo. There is everything you need in there and they even left us a very nice welcome pack. Terry and jo made us feel very welcome and couldn't do enough for us, we very much hope that we could meet up again some time.
Great villa with its own pool and views of the sea beyond
We had a great two weeks in North East Crete at this well appointed villa just up the hill from Milatos for our family holiday. We found a hire car essential to visit more of the surrounding area being an active family. However the villa with its lovely pool had everything we needed when we didn't want to be out and about. We loved using the outside BBQ area for cooking and eating alfresco.
FABULOUS Villa / Location - Great Rental
Spectacular location overlooking Milatos bay with great sea views out over the pool. Idyllic little Greek church on hillside in the distance. A proper villa / room with a view !
Villa has plenty of parking, good size pool (nice and clean), pretty little garden with BBQ area. Plenty of nice cool shade on the large terrace with comfy cane / wicker patio set (ideal for dining al fresco) as well as sun loungers around the pool for the sun lovers. The interior is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, with a large airy open plan main living area leading on to large terrace and pool.
Fully equipped, the villa provided everything we could need with lots of extra touches from the owners Terry and Jo who were discreetly on hand in the village if needed but otherwise we were left to enjoy our stay – which we did. Loved it so much we are looking to go back this summer.
We have stayed at Villa Orianna a couple of times and we had a fabulous time on both occasions. The villa is amazing. The interior decor is very good and makes the house lovely and cool in the hot summer. There is everything you could possibly want and need all supplied from BBQ and loungers to washing machine. Jo and Terry Lacey are lovely people who were so very helpful. They left leaflets and brochures for the local area and were more than happy to answer any other questions we had.
The views from every aspect of the garden and balconies were just to die for. We have some amazing pictures of the sunset from the infinity pool
All in all we had brilliant holidays in Crete and are planning another return trip this year. I can't praise the house, the area, the welcoming locals and the Lacey's enough. Thank you so much for letting us live your lives for just two weeks a year.
Enjoyed this top villa a second time
We loved the house, the plants surrounding it, the quiet area. Jo and Terry were very friedly and take very good care, the plants are in good shape and the pool water is excellent. The garden has plenty of solar colour leds and looks like a fairy tale in the evenings. Very spacious, and a game room with a nice table football. Music&speakers everywhere. The view is spectacular, the Milatos village visible below (10 min walk down), good sight on gorge and the sea. Nice restaurants at the seafront. Supermarkets are nearby in Sisi and Malia. The baker delivers a bread at the gate in the morning when payed upfront (in Milatos village in the street below "The Well" tavern). Liked walking to Sissi, to the cave and a long walk nearby (around the green area on google maps, via Tsampi and Latsida), and the Lassithi plane was worth a visit, as well as the Dikti mountains just South of it (visited 2 of the 3 peaks). This was our second visit and we hope to re-visit in the future (been to Crete 8 times so far).
Many thanks to Jo&Terry for their hopitality.
5 minutes by car brings you to the small sandy beach of Milatos and its famous fish tavernas. The large sandy beach at Malia is a 5km drive where all beaches have sun beds/parasols, toilets, showers, first aid, restaurants and bars.
Heraklion airport is about 40 minutes drive from the villa where car hire is available and is recommended.
Your party will be met at the airport by the owner and shown the way to Villa Orianna, this hopefully makes your journey more enjoyable and less stressful.
