Where to start?
Booking and communication were excellent. Kostas was easily contactable before and during the holiday, if needed. His welcome and introductions were very friendly and reassuring.
On arrival, Kostas and his father,George,were there to greet us. We were provided with lots of Cretan specialities during our stay - George's own wine, honey and raki, as well as a huge fruit basket, coffee, delicious biscuits, bread, more wine, red eggs for Easter and more.
The villa is immaculate. The photos on the website show it exactly as it is. It is cleaned and towels, sheets etc freshened, every 3 or so days. It is well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The pool and garden are lovely. It has loads of seating outdoors and great views over the village and down to the sea. Just be aware this is a traditional Cretan village so there are other houses nearby, but for the most part you don't notice these given the siting of the villa, and the sounds and music from below simply add to the ambience.
We cannot fault the villa in any way. It does take a little while to get to a 'main' road, but, again that is part of the charm and there is much to be done nearby, whether walking or visiting historical sites.
A superb villa with owners who make sure you have the best possible base and start to your holiday.
