What a wonderful holiday!

The views from Villa Ikaros are unforgettable, stretching from the White Mountains across to Souda Bay.

The villa itself is very clean, comfortable and well equipped, with many extra little thoughtful touches, such as the welcome food basket, the binoculars, bathrobes, pool towels and the mobile phone with a Greek SIM card. There are comfortable outdoor seating areas on each side of the villa, so you can always find sun or shade at any time of day – but still enjoy those views, of course! The pool was great for cooling off and our boys had a lot of fun playing in it. Having lunch or dinner on the terrace – again, with those views! – was wonderful. When we visited (in May) there was still some snow on the mountains, which made the backdrop even more stunning.

The village of Plaka is just a 10 minute walk down the hill. There are several good tavernas / restaurants there and two minimarkets, selling fresh bread every day and well stocked with the essentials (for everything else there is a larger supermarket in Kalyves, which is a 10 minute drive away).

The sandy beach at Almyrida is just a few minutes by car. It’s great for children as the sea is quite shallow here. Many restaurants line the seafront and it’s also possible to try a variety of water sports there.

This was our second visit (as a larger group we previously stayed in the beautiful Villa Daedalos) and we have all agreed that we would love to return again one day. A huge thank you to Alexis and all of the Bolarakis family for your very warm hospitality!

This surpassed all expectations, every aspect was perfect, the view, the villa, the location.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything it claimed to be and more. The extra little touches that the family have added were perfect, the binoculars for example! The views could not have been better, and the rooms were super. We enjoyed the walk down into the village, and went every day for lovely fresh bread. Even the walk to the adjoining beach was very manageable, we usually taxied back! We rented a care for half the week, mainly so we could explore further afield, but we were equally happy with a walk to the beach and an afternoon by the pool!

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute there and would like to thank the family so much for taking such obvious care of the villa. I really agree with all the previous views that it is so very tempting to return, as I am not at all sure we will ever find such a gem that fitted our needs and wants so well! Many thanks and keep it up!

Fantastic location and a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Villa Ikaros over the summer of 2015 and can say with absolute conviction that this was the best and most luxurious holiday we have had as a family.

The pictures of the views from the villa simply don't do it enough justice, it will simply take your breath away when you first round the corner to the pool.

The fact that we had such a quiet location and yet the local village, with surprisingly good restaurants, was a fairly easy walk (at least it was following a few cold beers) just sums up how perfect the setting is.

We have been all over the world and this is the only place where the possibility of a return visit has been discussed.

Fantastic - Great views, beautiful Villa,

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful place to stay, very private, luxurious but simple. there is loads of space to spread out and spend time on your own or to come together for a meal or drinks in 3 or 4 different areas around the villa.

Buts its the views that are breathtaking - we all loved it

Beautiful private villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

I knew the location would be fantastic since I had spent 3 days using Google Maps & Earth and Street View to check whether all the Villas short listed on this web site in North West Crete which claimed to have a beautiful private location with spectacular views really were. Most didn't, this did. The Owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly, meeting us in Plaka at 11pm after a late EasyJet flight. My wife and I stayed for 10 nights and then left and had a week walking in the White Mountains. I would recommend it to our friends and family without hesitation. My problem now is to try and find something similar in Northern Spain after we walk the Picos de Europa.

Beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last September and as a birthday treat for my wife chose to go back again in June. This is the first time we've ever re-visited a location which says it all! The owners clearly take a great deal of pride in the property. It's private, well equipped and the views are breath taking. A great location to re-charge your energies and just chill out. Our favourite location after 20 years of holidaying!
