About The Owner

Fifteen years ago we finally realized our long held dream and set off from England to our new life on the warm and sunny island of Crete. We had already purchased a plot of land with a house and one acre of orange trees and olive trees.

In the time honoured fashion of the island it took over a year to overcome the paperwork and legalities connected with our purchase but then we were able to start our huge project.

The gardens and villas slowly took shape, each year bringing exciting changes as the trees and plants matured. The result is now three villas set in beautiful gardens. Having been to Greece on previous occasions we wanted to make the accommodation spacious. A large bathroom was a must and raised sun terraces were top priority. We wanted to create individual privacy without being isolated and a pool that you could really swim in.

Why The Owner chose Tsikalaria

Our place is a unique, huge landscaped garden with mature shady trees, green lawns, exotic plants and a large swimming pool.

A perfect environment for people who wish to enjoy Crete, the fresh air, the sun, the shade, the food, the wine and the swimming pool.

Our pet cats and dogs live together in sweet harmony, a memorable experience especially for children.

Families have a great opportunity to relax together or find space, peace and quiet knowing that their loved ones are in a safe enclosed environment.

Friendships do often develop between families, children playing in the pool or on the lawns while Mum and Dad chat.

Our location makes it easy to explore the important historical sites dotted around close by and the countless beaches, busy or secluded. The two amazing gorge walks are within easy reach and if you decide to go inland into the mountains and villages with their tavernas, you will experience the timeless life of this beautiful island.

A walk to the local village taverna in the evening is a great way to end the day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are a family of 5 with children ranging from 9 to 13 years of age. Ian's place was perfect for us, but could imagine it suiting other visitors, too. We had hesitated about booking initially because we didn't want a shared pool, but this was not in fact an issue at all. The pool is very big and an awesome place to spend time. Most of the time we had it to ourselves anyway, but on the odd occasion someone was there, it was actually quite nice. Our villa was super clean, well-equipped and better than in the photos. The showers and air con worked really well, as did the layout of the place. The 3 villas are set in charming grounds, out of the town and in what appears to be an olive grove. Ian 's availability was great - always on hand but not remotely intrusive. He gave us some great local info - the local beaches sheet formed the basis of our stay there and we loved all the beaches, the ruins at Aptera and the local tavern the Rabbit. We ate there twice and although communication was a little tricky, we ended up with delicious inexpensive food and were given some freebies. Ian's place is hidden away from the tourist drag - he kindly met us in Souda and we followed him back. It's so well- situated for lots of day trips. We were so lucky to have found it and wished we'd booked for longer. We plan to come next year and stay for a couple of weeks. Great value for money, super relaxing - a real treasure of a find.”
