We were pleasantly pleased with the transfer from Chania airport to Villa Vanilla being 45mins. Arriving at night time we had no car initially and needed to purchase a few essentials for the morning. Our nieghbors were helpful and friendly and gave my husband a lift to a local late night supermarket.

The villa was modern, clean and spacious. Infact it was a pleasant surprise to actually discover that not only was the villa as good as it looked on the internet but it surpassed our expectations.

The villa is part of a small well designed complex of villas. Every block of 4 villas shared a free form pool. The pool was literally outside so keeping an eve on the kids as they played was easy. The villa itself is modern in design, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Everything you needed from irons, ironing board, hair dryers etc was all provided. Even beach towels and free wifi was provided. The washing machine was a real plus.

There was very much a community spirit with neighboring villas. Our neighbors offered to drive my husband into town so he could hire a car. Car hire was essential in that the villas were situated a little off the beaten track,but that was not a bad thing as there would be nothing worse in my opinion than having loud or raucous hotels or bars nearby. Car hire in Crete is notably more expensive than Turkey but we found eating out generally cheaper so the cost was cancelled out.

The beach is close. Although you could walk to the beach, it was only a 5 minute drive away. The beach is superb. Wide and sandy but more importantly.... quiet.

For something different, a 10 minute drive away is the picturesque Kornas lake where you can hire out peddloes and canoes. The children loved the lake and sliding into the warm water.

For another good day out we drove out to Elafonisi Beach. It took about 2 hours to get there but it was well worth the trip. The beach is beautiful and sandy. The water is crystal clear and you can walk out for miles before it starts to get deep. The coastal road back is also stunning and presented some excellent photo opportunities but in some places is not for the faint hearted as the roads become very narrow.

Whilst the local town Giorgopolous had a good selection of bars and restaurants with good food, a trip to Rethymnon is highly recommended The old town with its narrow streets has a fantastic selection of shops and quality restaurants. The Avli Restaurant was excellent and recommended.
