“Extremely relaxing holiday in beautiful nature and very nice house that offered all we needed.”

We enjoyed the remoteness of this location (you really need a car to get around). The house is equipped with all we needed, the addition of wifi made things even better for everybody in the house.

The beaches in the area are perfect. Many nice and very affordable tavernas to enjoy lunch, afternoon refreshments or romantic dinner.

Due to remoteness, it is not that easy to get supplies but it was manageable when thinking ahead during planning the trips to the sightseeing sites.

Be prepared to experience really strong wind. We had few such days like that and you notice it in the house (mainly the noise). It was not an issue when went to the beach.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay in this house.

Thank you for your kind review and so glad you enjoyed your stay in our little corner of paradise.We love to share it with others.Yes we do get strong winds occasionally but it's usually ok on the beach and you can always find a sheltered spot and it's sometimes cooling in the summer sun .
Great that you also visited some of the sites nearby ,
Kind regards Judy

“Delightful”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The villa is in a fantastic location overlooking the sparling Libyan sea. It has all you need even a very good internet connection upstairs to keep the children happy. The Pegasus Taverna is not far away where we had a lovely welcome and fantastic meals and service.
The villa has a lovely pool though may need another couple of sun beds for the larger group .There is airconditioning but only in 2 of the bedrooms.The owners did say they were looking at this.It has a nice layout and the views from the upstairs deck are delightful.
Fresh bread and smaller items were available in Kerames a 5-10 drive and plenty of beaches and tavernas are within a few minutes drive.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday here.

“A gem of a villa with outstanding views”

Thank you Judy and John for allowing us to stay in your wonderful villa. The views were just outstanding. The villa had everything that we needed. The two terraces were fantastic and the pool was heavenly. We were joined at the hip for two weeks. We did venture out to the local beaches a few times and these were so tranquil that some days there were only a handful of people around. The night sky was amazing and we saw many shooting stars. During the day we heard the cicadas, the sound of tinkling goat and sheep bells and watched as eagles flew overhead on the thermals. The local tavernas were superb. Lots of fresh fish and local cuisine. One was only a short hop skip and jump away. We hired a VW Polo for the two weeks which was adequate but next time we would opt for a 4 x 4 to give me more confidence on the sometimes very steep and narrow roads.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Agia paraskevi .It is a very special place and we love it when our guests enjoy it as much as we do.Sometimes a 4 wheel car is useful but mostly we get around in a simple panda.However we did do some off road this year and got to the top of psiloritis .So much to see in Crete.
Love Judy

“Peaceful location, beautiful villa”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed here in April 2014 with hubby, sister in law and my 2 brothers. We loved the accommodation, Judy and John have thought of everything, with a good supply of CDs and DVDs, maps and guides. stacks of spare towels and bed linen. Most memorable for me was when the first view of the coast came into sight having driven across the mountain - absolutely breath taking. With just a handful of houses around us and the morning visits from the sheep and goats with their bells jangling, the evening sunset over the water, it really was a beautiful retreat. We were out most days exploring the island and have to recommend a visit to Ligres Beach just around the corner and a meal at Villa Maria, we were made to feel like family. This was also a great place for exploring on foot and we had several walks into the hills. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed the 'end of the world experience' when you stayed in Agia Paraskevi. It is also wonderful in springtime when it is not so hot and there is a wonderful variety of wild flowers.
