The villa is located at a beautiful spot high above the Agios Pavlos bay. The bay can be reached by car in 10 minutes. Watching the sunset from the terrace of the villa is wonderful.
The house is furnished in a modern and elegant style. It provides everything we needed. Also the kitchen is equipped very well.
The house is located directly at a small road which was not busy at all during our stay.
The next bigger village Agia Galini can be reached in about 20 minutes.
Forenoon there is shadow at the terrace. End of october the pool was already too cold for us.
The landlord and the management are very friendly and helpful.
The location is amazing, with views of the mountains and the sea, and great sunsets at night. We had such a relaxing time and loved southern Crete.
The home is done to a very high standard, unlike some rental homes that are kitted out minimally, with no personal effects and using cheap items, this is the opposite. Everything from the sun loungers and sofas to the dining table, dishwasher and washing machine were great quality products and the beds were really comfortable. It felt very homely and included nice little extras such as bathrobes, soap, shower gel, dishwasher tablets and washing machine liquid which many rentals do not provide. The kitchen had everything that you would need - all the usual items and also a coffee machine, a juicer to make fresh OJ, teapot, lots of different types of glasses for any kind of drinks, and there is a gas BBQ outside. It also had air conditioning and good wifi.
As it is in such a peaceful location, the nearest shop is 20 minutes drive so you need to make sure you get all the food items you need, to save too many trips in the car. Or take advantage of the shopping service so that its all waiting for you when you arrive. The nearest beach is just a 10 minute drive which has sunloungers and umbrellas and a few beach cafes. Rethymno is under an hours drive and was a lovely city to explore.
The owner greeted us on arrival and the customer service was great. The etouri team who manage the property contacted us to see if there was anything they could help us with and were extremely friendly and helpful.
We would definitely recommend staying here.
The location on he hill is great. The most amazing sun sets ever...
Very comfortable house with everything you can wish for.
You need a car because the nearest shops/bakery are 20-25 minutes drive and back.
But the house has a fridge and freezer. Beatiful small beaches are at 10 minutes drive (Agios Pavlos, Triopetra).
