We have stayed in some lovely villas in (mainly) Greek Islands and mainland Greece – with many of them in the Western Crete area too. We have to say, though, that in common with all previous reviews for this Villa - M & M villa is the best we have stayed in, by far.

It is a spacious villa in a beautiful location that will not disappoint. The villa is on a large plot on a hillside with great views of the mountains on the right and the sea to the left. - a lovely position and a view we never tired of.

Everything worked well and was clearly well-maintained. We kept saying how fortunate we were to have found this property and owner

It is exceptionally well equipped – there was nothing in the kitchen that I felt was missing – everything was to hand - and spotlessly clean. The information kept in the villa was comprehensive and really useful. As were the variety of CDs to listen to.

The layout of the Villa was such that our party (my husband and myself; and my sister and her husband – all over 60!) had relative privacy in more or less separate accommodation – just coming together on the first floor for meals and drinks over-looking the sea

The owner (Manolis) could not have done anything else make our holiday more enjoyable. A welcome meal with Wine and Raki was awaiting us on our arrival, which was wonderful after an early start in the UK. We were also given home-made produce, all of which was absolutely delicious. We were encouraged to pick fresh herbs and a variety of fruit from the beautifully maintained garden; Additionally we were given some Olive Oil (produced from the trees in the grounds), to take home with us.

The generous hospitality provided by Manolis was completely unobtrusive and in our experience quite rare.

The large pool ranging from one to two metres in depth was fabulous to swim in and always clean (it is a chemical free pool, using salt – a boon for Asthma sufferers). It was cleaned daily early in the morning, and whilst some of our party were up and about at that time – it was maintained in a very unobtrusive manner

We were so sorry to leave the villa. We never did get to take the short walk up through the village to see the cave there – guess we’ll just have to come back soon …...

Manolis, thank you to you and your co-owner for keeping the place in such a spotless and well-maintained condition. We have no hesitation in recommending M&M Villa to anyone else – it is a special place

Owner's Response: I wish to thank all four of you for choosing M&M Villa amongst so many other villas! I also wish to thank you for recognizing the efforts that are put in order to make the villa, the pool and the property, as you have said in your own words, a "SPECIAL PLACE". See you soon. I have enjoyed having you as my guests! Manolis

A simply stunning villa, pool and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned having spent three weeks in Villa M&M with our family and cannot praise this villa highly enough. There was nothing that Manolis (the owner) hadn’t thought of to make our stay more enjoyable including music CDs, movie DVDs and a selection of books (in his library) along with a very well equipped kitchen. The villa is very comfortable & spacious and being on two levels meant that we (the grandparents) could have our own space and also be with the family on the upper floor for evening meals and drinks on the balcony which looks across at the beautiful White Mountains and surrounding countryside. On our arrival, Manolis had prepared a meal with wine and soft drinks so that we didn’t need to go shopping until the next day.

Everything is immaculately kept and very clean and exactly as shown in the photographs. He even provides towels for use around the pool, something we have never come across before when renting a villa. There is a large family bathroom beside the pool, with a shower and toilet. The pool is amazing and the view is breath taking. Manolis cleans the whole area every day in the early morning so that it doesn’t disrupt your day and once a week the pool is deep cleaned. The pool is cleaned without the use of chemicals but with salt.

The gardens are quite amazing with olive and fruit trees and some beautiful flowers, particularly the beautiful Angels Trumpets which flowered for the last couple of days of our stay. There is also a herb garden which clients are welcome to use if they do their own cooking. The downstairs apartment has a balcony that overlooks the garden and is so quiet and peaceful. Nothing to be heard but birdsong.

We all enjoyed our stay at M&M villa, which was in a fantastic location to explore the Eastern side of Crete and cannot thank Manolis enough for making our stay so enjoyable.

Absolutely delightful villa with amazing pool and spectacular unforgettable views. Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful villa in a beautiful location with an absolutely fabulous pool. We have never stayed anywhere where we have been made to feel so welcome and where the host, the charming Manolis, was as generous with provisions and gifts. The pool was immaculately clean and Manolis' information pack was both exceptionally helpful and extremely informative with some great suggestions for trips, restaurants and general information. The incessant chirruping of the wildlife and the spectacular swooping swallows into the pool in the morning were a Creten delight , not to mention the beautifully maintained gardens bursting with ripening fruit and olives that produce delicious Olive Oil (thanks to Manolis). The villa afforded amazing privacy, the pool area was totally secluded and had amazing views. Thanyou to Manolis for your hospitality and allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa.

perfect in every detail

  • 5 of 5

Special location with great views from both terraces, very comfortable with every thing one could wish for to hand. The gardens are wonderful and the private pool and space for sunbathing spectacular. The literature information kept in the villa was comprehensive and really useful. The generous hospitality provided by the owner Manolis was completely unobtrusive and in our experience unusual.

First rate villa and owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious villa in a beautiful location that will not disappoint. From the moment of contact, the villa owner was very efficient and helpful. He was thoughtful about every aspect of our stay, from arranging the meet and greet at the airport so we could follow in our hire car right to the villa gates; to the wonderful local foodstuffs awaiting us which meant no mad dash to the supermarket; to the wonderful meal prepared for our first night; to the comprehensive tour of the house and property; the provision of a mobile phone so we could contact him if necessary; the in-house information pack and the gift of some of his own organic olive oil to take home. Manolis couldn't have been more genuinely welcoming and helpful.

The villa is on a large plot on a hillside with great views - an enviable position and one we never tired of. It is maintained, decorated and cleaned to a very high standard throughout. Everything works well (though we did have intermittent wifi, but it wasn't a real problem) and if you have any questions he is only a phone call away. We kept saying how fortunate we were to have found this property and owner.

On the ground floor is the entrance and this leads to the first bedroom, what I would say is the master suite, as it is self-contained with its own very large bathroom, lounge, kitchenette and balcony. also on the level is a very large garage that is equipped as a utility room for your use, should you want to do any washing. The veranda on this level has vies of the garden.

Up a wide marble staircase to the next level is the main area of the house. Here are two further bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin, with a shared shower room between them. There is also a lounge and the main kitchen. and a veranda with views of the coast and White Mountains across olive groves.

Outside are beautifully maintained gardens that are obviously very productive with olive tree, citrus trees, aloe vera, peppers, flowering plants and bushes and a large herb garden. I've probably not done justice to it in this brief description. The pool is wonderful - along a path through part of the garden. It has the same views as the main level veranda - sea and mountains and olive groves and is not overlooked so is very private. There are large sunbathing areas in sun or shade and the pool is large and goes from one to two metres in depth. The water quality is superb. There is a convenient bathroom at the pool.

Owner's Response: I would like to thank Maureen and her husband for taking the time to write this beautiful review and for their kind words. I particularly appreciate the description given of what they feel to be the highlights of the property and what they enjoyed the most about it. Well done! I am also pleased to read that they have enjoyed my in-put and all the help that I was able to provide to them in receiving them and making sure that they felt at home from the very beginning of their stay. I was happy to arrange a meeting at the Chania airport to escort them to the villa. When a group comes in on a late arrival flight late evening, I do try to provide this service. Otherwise, for regular day or early evening arrivals, I do offer and send to the travelers beforehand a comprehensive package including map and hand sketch map giving detail description of how to get to the villa from the airport. Finally, I would like to thank them for pointing out their experience with the WIFI. Noted and I will see to it! I hope to have the opportunity to receive Maureen and her husband at my villa again and finally, making use of Maureen's own expression, I wish to thank these two "first rate" travelers for their honest and genuine support. Thank you for coming and see you both again at M&M villa! Manolis

A beautiful private villa. Wonderful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We were so sorry to leave this villa. We have stayed in some beautiful villas, cottages and even cruise ships in amazing destinations, but in our opinion M&M Villa was the most outstanding for cleanliness, facilities and situation. It was just a short drive to the shops. We would recommend the short walk up through the village to see the cave there.

On our late arrival Manolis had some wonderful food prepared for us, along with raki and wine.

We did not want to leave the villa, even though it was our first stay in Crete and on the occasions we did had to force ourselves to leave the gorgeous, warm, large, private pool with stunning views, surrounded by orange trees and jasmine flowers. Manolis cleaned the pool and gardens every morning, but before we were up.

The villa had everything we needed and lots more besides. If there was something we wanted or any help needed, then Manolis was at the end of the phone at any time.

There are lots of books, CD's and videos for entertainment and listening to Handel whilst watching the red full moon rise from over the mountains was magical. My mum said that she could now die happy! In 70 years she hasn't seen anything like it.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Manolis for renting out this superb villa and for all of his help and meeting us at the airport.

We cannot recommend this place enough.
