Perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks with 2 small children and it was perfect. There is no stairs and there are lots of equipment available such as baby monitors, high chairs and a cot with a proper mattress.

The villa is in a great area for exploring the island and is very private. The facilities are excellent and the swimming pool is ideal with the separate shallow area.

The owners are lovely and made our stay extra special.valia who dealt with any enquiries before staying was great help too.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two wonderful weeks at this beautiful villa and had the perfect holiday. The villa is stunning and the owners are lovely, kind people who make you feel very welcome. They are always on hand but never intrusive.

The villa is not overlooked so it is nice and private. We can recommend this villa for couples and for families and for those with reduced mobility. The local village is within walking distance with some good supermarkets and amenities. We were sad to leave and would happily stay there again.

An absolutely amazing holiday - a 5 star villa experience with luxury, comfort and ambience.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa to stay at. Very comfortable and the owners are totally amazing and very welcoming. Nothing is too much, and they spoiled us so much - we even got an authentic home cooked meal delivered one night! Gorgeous garden and pool area., with full use of the vegetable patch. The villa is private and well equipped, and we absolutely loved the outside entertainment area - spent lovely evenings cooking there! Walking distance to the local town, with the most amazing bakery, such friendly people and always ready to provide tasters. Amazing beaches close by - it is lovely to be in the country and drive 10 minutes to the beach and beautiful harbour town. Our first visit to Crete, and will absolutely return to this villa again and highly recommend it to anyone! Look no further and book this villa today!!

Beautiful villa with amazing kind hosts. You will not find any better than this slice of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

I'd gladly give this villa far more than 5 stars if I could. Everything about this place is beautiful, peaceful and amazing. Currently on our last day after a weeks holiday and we couldn't have asked for more. We were greeted by the lovely villa owners who were amazing during our entire stay. Providing lots of lovely little extras making our holiday even more special and making sure we enjoyed our stay. The villa itself is beautiful and perfect for a family holiday. We had our 2 boys with us aged 6 and 11 and they loved everything about it. The area around is quiet, the small town is just a short drive where there are supermarkets, a few shops and a beautiful bakery. The villa itself is very private and has both an amazing pool and outdoor kitchen, we were hardly ever inside although the villa inside is also immaculate and filled with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The villa also has an amazing fruit and veg garden which you're encouraged to use during your stay at the villa. It's simple just a little slice of paradise which gave us an amazing holiday and we'd love to come back again. We wouldn't look elsewhere for a place to stay in Crete, it couldn't top this place!

We are recommending this place to all our friends and family. If you want a perfect holiday this is the villa to book.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time. The villa was so clean and well decoratored. It was perfect for us as we were with my one year old son so he could explore without us worrying about the stairs. The pool and outside area was great and we used the BBQ quite a few times.

Helena was absolutely fantastic and very welcoming and at the end of the phone if we needed anything. Would reccomend this villa to anyone but I would say it is especially family friendly.
