Fantastic, smart and peaceful
Loved our holiday, amazing location, great facilities
Beautiful view
We were warlmy welcomed in the villa by Anna and George. The property was spotless and with beautiful sea view. Only 5minutes walk to the beach and taverna.
Lovely well equipped villa with great facilities and views
The villa is absolutely lovely. It's modern, well equipped with everything you need, plenty of space, evenly sized bedrooms (so no-one gets the 'poor room') and really, really clean. In fact we had a maid visit twice within 9 days who cleaned the villa from top to bottom. The highlight of the villa is the aspect out across the bay, which is best enjoyed on the dining terrace where you watch the sun set and the moon rise across the sea every night. The pool sits slightly to the rear. It's very private yet still affords seas views across bay. The pool is super clean, a really decent size and has nice canopied/shaded areas if you want to keep out of the sun. it also has an outside kitchen and fridge for keeping drinks cool, along with a decent size BBQ. Inside the open plan areas work really well, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need for a week away - although to be honest you'll spend most of your time outside in the sun. There is another balcony on the first floor which although too hot to sit on during the day, is perfect for that late afternoon first drink. If you want to venture out, there is a stone beach at the foot of the bay (5 minute walk) with a beach bar, ice cream and a couple of tavernas. Used mainly by the locals, it's really charming with stunning clear blue water and safe swimming due to a gradual slope leading into the sea. Otherwise you are only 15 minutes from a choice of other beaches that offer a bit more sand and space. The location is fairly remote so ideal for those looking to experience local life, bars, tavernas etc rather than the 'full-on tourist' beaches elsewhere. Stella and her husband (the owners) cannot be more helpful and if you're lucky she'll bake you a cake or even a local dish from their BBQ. We stayed as 2 families of four with teenage kids and everyone gave the stay a solid 10/10 - so you really can't get better than that.
A beautiful villa in a peaceful location with stunning views of the sea.
We highly recommend this stunning villa for a holiday in this relaxed unspoilt part of Crete.The villa is as lovely in reality as it looks in the photos, if not better. The views from the balconies are stunning and we spent many relaxed evenings enjoying looking out to sea and listening to the waves lapping the shore. The villa was immaculate inside and out and was very well equipped. The pool area was clean, spacious, private and has lovely comfy loungers.Anna and George (along with Stella) were the most kind, helpful and generous hosts. They went out of their way to make our stay the best it could be; they provided an excellent welcome pack containing everything we needed for the first couple of days and they cooked 2 delicious meals for us during our 2 week stay which was so kind and generous of them. We also got to enjoy a delicious home made apple cake.The lovely beach is a 5 minute stroll away with loungers & parasols for 6€ and a good taverna at the back of the beach.You need a car to get to larger supermarkets and other tavernas (10 min drive) in nearby Kourtsouras. We loved this part of Crete as it is relatively quiet (even in August we could get loungers on the beach & tables in the tavernas) and it’s full of Greek people rather than ‘Brits abroad’ swamping everywhere!We would love to return one day and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the villa & area to anyone!
Fantastic villa, wonderful location
Exactly as described, a great Villa with wonderful hospitality from the owners. We did experience an issue with the transfer which we organised ourselves - had we used the people Stella recommended we wouldn't have. We hired a car from the company recommended by Stella and they were just brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful. No hidden costs - just honest, nice people. The air con (in every room) was the best I've ever experienced in Greece, beds were really comfortable and to have the place cleaned and linen changed half way through the week was a real treat. If you looking for a large, comfortable Villa with the most spectacular views this is it.
Our second visit and just as brilliant!
After a fabulous stay last year we just had to come back! Stella and her family were once again very welcoming. The property is very clean and very well equipped. The views are beautiful and you can happily 'waste' hours looking at them over relaxing, long lunches (if you're lucky lunch sometimes includes delicious home cooked food from the owners!) The area remains off the beaten track with the tavernas in the area being packed out with locals which we think is always a good sign. You do need a car and to be prepared to drive a short distance for good meals but it's well worth it. We love Crete and explored areas we hadn't been to before. If you are looking for complete relaxation, away from crowds - this is it. (2 families 4 adults and 5 children)
What an amazing holiday!
The owners made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived with a welcome pack of essentials which was great as our flight had been delayed. During the stay we're were treated to some lovely home cooked meals and they helped us with restaurant recommendations and bookings. The villa is beautiful with a terrace looking out over the sea - a simply wonderful place to eat and relax. The kitchen is very well equipped and the villa is cleaned regularly during your stay.The pool is a great size with a shallow end and steps for the little kids but the sea is also just a 10 min walk and has essential beers and ice-cream!The area is quiet and you definitely need a car but there are really good beaches and restaurants not far from the villa. If you're looking to relax this is the place to be.In a nutshell we would highly recommend this villa and we are hoping to return again in 2017
The perfect holiday villa...
Being a regular visitor to this quiet region of Crete I can honestly say I have finally found the perfect villa. From first enquiry to departure the owners could not be more friendly and helpful. The owners are the perfect hosts and their villa has everything you could need during your stay. They cooked us an amazing fish lunch, so kind and totally unexpected! Their welcome package included a full fridge of everything you would need for the first few days, bread, fruit and veg, beer wine etc. There are a two tavernas and a lovely quiet beach a short walk from the villa. If you take advantage of the use of the owners hire car you can explore a part of Crete which less frequently asked visited by other tourists. I can not recommend this villa more and will be staying again on future trips. Thank you Anna and George!
