A lovely villa - clean, tidy and a great position.
If we were to suggest any improvements it would be better directions to find the villa as we struggled as did others who visited us.
The villa was slightly let down with the shower in the 2nd bedroom - could do with upgrading. A proper shower to the main bedroom would be better than the bath.
The kitchen could be of a better quality - the worktop was very basic; we would normally expect a granite / stone worktop in a villa like this. Also, perhaps soft close doors etc to the units.
The swimming pool was not heated and took a while to build the courage to brave the cold water!
However, overall, the villa was very good and we would recommend to others.
We had a really lovely 5 night stay in the fantastic Pericles Villa.
We decided that sea side view and away from it all was top on our agenda and needed three bedrooms to sleep two of us (parents) two kids (4 and 8) and one Grandma!
Having not traveled to Crete before we researched that for us West was going to be best with the added bonus of catching the last rays and watching the sun dip into the Mediterranean sea from the veranda.
The Villa was very neat, clean, comfy beds, good air con in the bedrooms, loads of space inside and loads and loads of space outside (we never got under each other feet), great pool, a Jacuzzi in our bedroom! and amazing location!
It was an easy drive to the three amazing beaches we visited, Falassarna (20mins) Elafonissi (55mins) and Balos (50 mins).
We mostly ate out and found that the nearest Taverna on the beach Captain Fidias all of 800 meters away was run by a really lovely family and the freshly caught fish (daily by the sons) cooked on the BBQ was delicious.
When we stayed in, the kitchen, BBQ, and multiple dining table options were great and the snacks and a few basics that the very lovely Xristina had left for us on arrival were a delightful treat!
We loved it, we could have easily stayed for 10 days and will definitely be going back!
