Dave Rudge purchased this villa in 2004
The layout of the property was perfect for our family of seven and while the grandparents moved into their own little apartment on pool level, the parents, aunt and two kids occupied the three bedrooms on the upper level. We were glad to have air-conditioning since the July heat was only bearable inside, the shade or close to the water. Property managers Alan and Suzanne were very friendly and social and stopped by on a daily basis to answer questions, give advise or recommendations. Our personal requests were happily fulfilled within hours.
Our favorite time of the day started after sunset (cooler temperatures!) and we were warmly welcomed by Kattie and Adonis at Taverna Martigi. The Greek hospitality was outstanding and we felt like family when eating in this small tavern, only minutes away from Villa Sophia. Our favorite day time activities were exploring the island (in the air-conditioned car) and visiting different beaches. Do not miss going to Falassarna ("Big Beach")! We had never seen more crystal clear waters and beaches before. Plenty of sun chairs and umbrellas were available to rent and little cafe's offered cooled beverages and ice cream. While the beach of Elafonisi was pretty and impressed us with shallow lagoons and a beautiful scenery, the bus loads of tourists and crowds were not appealing to us. Well, we checked this beach off our to-do list and at least we got some nice pictures in the turquoise water, a little away from everybody else. Another beach we loved was passed on our way to Stavros. We actually never made it up further North because the beach of Kalathias provided everything our family valued: blue waters, fine sand, rocks to snorkel around and see fish ... and a nearby cafe! The photo album we created while vacationing on Crete is exploding with pictures that could easily win awards for best beaches of the world. We loved every minute of our stay and we will be back for sure!

We (my wife and I) have just spent two weeks in a fantastic mountain Villa in Crete. Pano Stalos Villas to be precise. We normally holiday in Malta but friends recommended Pano Stalos. This has got to be the most idyllic and peaceful place I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Just imagine lying by the pool watching an eagle flying above, magnificent views out to sea on one side and yet surrounded by mountains. Private and secluded but only five minutes drive from the beaches and Traditional restaurants and night life of Kato Stalos. We have booked again for next year.
C'est un petit coin de tranquillité et de silence avec une vue superbe sur Chania. La villa est située sur une colline ce qui permet de profiter et de la vue et d'un peu de fraîcheur très appréciable en été. Les magasins et la "New Road" sont à moins de 10 mn.
L’accueil est très sympathique et Allan est toujours de bon conseil.
We had a lovely stay at the beautiful Villa Europa. The house itself was well-planned and equipped and we loved the poolarea with the fantastic view with the ocean in front and surrounded with olive threes. Our hosts, Alan and Suzanne, took very good care of us and we had all information ever needed for a great stay in Crete. A nice welcoming package in the fridge when arriving etc.
We will definitely come back and recommend the house fully. Just a 10 minute drive down to the sea.
This was our 3rd stay at Europa, the first being 6 years ago. The place good then but now following a make over its wow. The villas and surrounding areas are very well kept by Alan and Suzzane who are always on call and when they visit very discrete if you want or very friendly as well. Their knowledge of the area is very helpful.Europa is a very private villa not being overlooked by anyone and maintains the sun well into the evening. The views from the pool area and balconies are stunning. We will no doubt return to Panos Stalls Villas again
Beautiful house, spektacular sea view and a charming pool area. Villa Hannah is truly a sight for sore eyes! It can take 8 people, but you need to tell Dave in advance. The onsite support is also great (Alan+wife are stars!) We recommend to rent a car unless you're a very comfortable walker. Stalos is pretty nice, but it's even nicer up in the mountain at Villa Hannah. The only minor improvement area I can think of is the road directions to get there.
We'd be happy to return and we're actually thinking of it!

We spend a wonderfuk week in Villa Europa! The villa is really nice, full-equiped, clean and very well-maintained with a beautiful swimming-pool. The panoramic view is amazing: the villa is situated on the top of a cliff, it is very peacefull and really helps to disconnect! We were welcomed by Allan and Suzanne who have been really helpfull, they always recommanded us nice beaches or typic restaurants! The villa is well situated: Chania is 15 minutes driving and the place is quite central to visit western Crete, such as Balos or Elafonissi. I will definitely recommand the villa to my friends or family ;)
