“Peaceful away from it all villa with breathtaking views”
Reviewed 17 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Wonderfully spacious villa, great support staff for help and amazing mid holiday clean and linen change, also very welcome food pack.
May need powerful car/4x4 to access top of drive as steep incline we did just manage with 1.3 peugeot with a run up.
Large swim pool up steps behind villa very secluded. Newly opened evening restaurant about 30m to one side, Catherine hopes to plant trees for more privacy on lower terrace.
Excellent views over Souda Bay (binoculars provided to watch birdlife and Nato forces).
Owner provides much needed directions to villa and wide range of information on places to visit and activities tailored to your needs, if you email these to her.

Hi Mary
Many Thanks for your great review; As you say the drive is steep and hence the fantastic views, the trick is to let the car roll back to the electricity pillar (Stone pillar) and then take-off in 1st gear from there. I haven't seen the new taverna myself yet however if I feel there is a privacy issue I will certainly make some provision for screening.

I really hope we see you again and thanks again for the gifts you gave to the Sarah's Hope Foundation.

Best Regards,Catherine

“Beautiful villa, lovely location”
Reviewed 2 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

High on a hilltop perches the lovely Villa Vouno offering stunning sea views from every terrace and most windows. A totally relaxing holiday in such an unspoilt beautiful location. The villa is tastefully furnished inside, very clean and fully equipped. Catherine, the owner, was extremely helpful at the time of booking the villa and leading up to the time of the holiday. My only comment would be if you book this villa and something is missing let the owner or reps know and they will be more than happy to help.

Hi Paula,

Many thanks for doing a review and really glad you enjoyed your holiday. I'm sorry we couldn't accomodate you for half-term 2012, however maybe you'll get a chance to visit us again next year?
My apologies about the captains chair; as you say I'd have had it sorted if you'd phoned me...but you weren't to know I could do something about them from 4000 miles away and you would not have been a nuisance letting me know...that's exactly what I'm here for; to make sure your holiday is wonderful! It didn't seem to dampen your spirits anyway!I really enjoyed our chat on your return and hearing about everything you'd done, it keeps it fresh for me too!
The taverna nearby is up and going now and getting the thumbs up from all my subsequent guests, so you definitely need to come back and try that out!!
Thanks again, Catherine.

Thanks Simon for your great review; we feel exactly the same when we are at the villa....it's nearly too hard to leave! If it weren't for our kids who make eating a national past-time, I think we'd be quite happy to sit and while away the hours with a glass of wine up there.
Really glad you enjoyed your holiday, please visit us again soon.
Best Regards, Catherine

Hi Folks,

Glad you enjoyed your stay at the villa as well as all the other activities we helped organise for you. You told me how touching the war graves were, so I have popped into the post for you a copy of 'The Cretan runner' for you to read now that you've returned home,...enjoy! Koula says she hopes you are practising your Greek?I hope we will see you again sometime, so that you can enjoy more of the West of Crete and it's people.

Many Thanks, Catherine
