Guestbook comments from the owner

It wasn't quite dark when we arrived and as we walked into the living room and looked out the large windows, the view took our breath away. The twinkling lights of the village below were just coming on and the sun was casting a pink glow over the Aegean Sea that stretched out beyond. There were mountains off to our left and even though there were a few villas around us, we never saw or heard anyone. The house was very roomy with an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining room and living room. The pool is a nice size and there's plenty of lawn furniture. Plus we were surrounded by olive trees, oleander and bougainvillea. Rosanna and Thanassos were so hospitable and left us a welcome basket with fruit, cookies, nuts and wine. The kitchen also was stocked with basics. The village below, Milatos, has some good open-air restaurants and it only takes about five minutes to get there. We would definitely stay here again!

A great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

This large, private and family friendly house was ideal for our large party of 13 people including 5 children. The huge pool, outside area and gardens were a delight and were enjoyed by everyone.

The views across the valley, down to the village of Milatos, the sea and sunsets were fantastic.

The warm hearted owners, Rozana and Thanasis, had a great deal of local knowledge and contacts. They responded to any queries very quickly and booked transfers and car hire for us.

We would thoroughly recommend this spacious house.

Excellent villa with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Our family (7) stayed at this villa, which is actually two separate properties, with my brother and his family (5).Each family was able to enjoy their own privacy whilst sharing all the outdoor space together! The views are amazing and the outdoor eating area and pool are superb. There is always a breeze which makes the heat more bearable. You will definitely need to hire a car because the villa is not accessible by public transport. The closest village of Milatos has some great tavernas by the sea and other lovely villages are also only a short drive away. Rozanna, the owner, is so helpful and makes your stay very enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend a holiday here. We hope to return one day.

Most amazing villa, a must stay.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Villa in a stunning, peaceful location. Breath taking views of mountains and sea. Spotlessly clean and well equipped villa. Rozana and Thanisis, the owners, are amazing, making us feel so welcome and so helpful. I really recommend the BBQ that they do for you, never tasted food like it and so plentiful we had enough for dinner the next evening, bargain for €25/30 per person. The pool and extensive outside terrace amazing, equipped with plenty of sun beds and outside furniture. Milatos a lovely untouched village and lovey beach lower down with superb Tavernas set along the waters edge. Car hire is a must if you want to shop and sightsee, we hired cars for three days, and spent the rest of the week in the villa relaxing, which was so easy to do. Although I want to keep this gem to myself, I can't, I would highly recommend this wonderful villa. I will certainly stay at this villa again. Thank you Rozana and Thanisiss for a truly wonderful week.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday with three generations in this spacious, comfortable Villa. Set in a stunning location about three miles from the local village and beach it allows complete privacy and peace. A car is essential and the Taverna Akrogiali at Milatos beach was particularly welcoming. Rozana and Thanos have created a beautiful home and are lovely welcoming hosts with nothing too much trouble. Particularly recommended is their Souvlaki dinner which they cooked for us one evening. The stairs aren't perfect for toddlers but no problem with help from an adult. We would thoroughly recommend this villa with it's friendly owners for a large family holiday.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank this wonderful family who chose villa "Iliothea" and the good words that they wrote in the guestbook and in the review. Also thank you for trusting us and enjoying the Greek "souvlaki" in the barbecue area. Feel satisfied we were given the opportunity to create in a wonderful place with stunning views the big villa with all the comforts , the large pool, and the barbecue that need guests to make a family holiday in Crete. Villa spaces inside and outside allow a large number of people to stay. Ιs ideal for large families who want to enjoy their holiday together. For this reason we are glad and grateful that all our guests leave with the best impressions. Dear Angela, thank you again for giving us the opportunity to meet you and your lovely family. We wish the best in life ! Hope see you again. Rozana-Thanos

Beautiful large villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here in early September. Everything about the villa was as expected, very clean, spacious, fabulous pool, lovely grounds and superb views.

The villa is well situated near Milatos with good access to a number of sandy beaches and many restaurants. As the villa is in the hills, a car is recommended, although it is not far to key locations.

The owners, Rozana and Thanasis are a delight. Very warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome.
