Out of this world!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Neraida is the most amazing villa with fabulous views. With space and rooms in abundance, it is perfect for a group or family getaway. Within walking distance of the village of Milatos and a short taxi ride to Sissi, Great service throughout from the booking of the villa, to tips on hot spots to visit and our final farewell from Audrey - superb experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

What you see on the website is exactly what you get. The villa is beautiful, inside and out. It was just the holiday we wanted. Our 30th wedding anniversary with some friends and family. Walked into milatos during the day and night through the stay. Audrey was vey helpful and booked us taxis into sissi. There were 13 of us 12 adults and 1 child. Very relaxing lazy days by the pool with a bbq lunch, boat trip to st.George's bay or a sociable lively cocktail in ormos Sissi, there really is everything round you that anyone could wish for with a fantastic villa as your Base. Both Audrey and eva were very helpful throughot our stay. Would highly recommend villa Neraida to anyone.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Villa Neraida is so nice we would rename it Villa Narnia. The dream house is modern, minimalist, yet very comfortable and spacious, looking over Milatos village and a breathtaking view that you can enjoy straight from the big infinity pool. It's very private - whether you're looking for a quiet getaway or a party, the neighbours are far away so no one bothers anyone. We wish we never had to leave.

Lovely stay at Villa Neraida

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Neraida for 2 weeks in June 2015 just outside Milatos,Crete I have to say we had a fantastic time, the Villa exceeded our expectations

We travelled as a party of 10 people spanning 3 family generations with the villa being spread over 4 floors we all had plenty of space

The villa is furnished to a high specification with a superb kitchen and BBQ area plus all the utensils you can think of, we the loved the bifold doors opening out onto the terraced areas were we ate our breakfast every morning.

The Villa has fantastic views over the olive groves looking out over Milatos harbour although you can walk to Milatos village in 10 minutes and Miltos beach in 20 a car is a must which audrey organised for us through Smile car rentals who were easy to deal with and met us at the airport

The infinity pool was great very clean well looked after by Wayne and a must after a day out

We visited a number of places Knossos archaeological site for a bit of culture only 40 mins by car,Audrey recommended we visit Spinaloga from plaka which was a great recommendation Plaka has some really nice art and craft shops all at reasonable prices.

We also visited Agios Nikolaos which has many good restaurants around the lagoon and is very pretty especially in the evening, there are plenty of clean beaches ranging from small coves to long sandy beaches

Although eating in was great there are so many good restaurants close by it was hard not to go out you are always met with great food and even better hospitality

Would we recommend Villa Neraida …a big yes is the answer ! it was the first time we had moved away from the traditional package holiday but with Audrey looking after us during our stay making recommendations and giving advise it was easy

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus hielt was es versprach und noch darüber hinaus.

Herzlicher Empfang der Vermieterin.

Leider war es ziemlich windig, aber das hat uns nicht gestört.

Es war ein Urlaub, wie man sich vorstellt
