“Brilliant Luxury Villa With Incredible view and Fantastic Amenities And Quality”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I would highly recommend this Villa. The pics do not do it justice. Richard and Miriam are brilliant owners who made the whole process very simple. They provided excellent insight on the area, including restaurants, beaches and shopping.
All rooms are fully loaded and quality of the internal appliances and accessories are amazing. Areti the manager of the property is exceptionally helpful and on stand by to help. Great for kids as well.
The local area is great especially Green Beach and Kalo Nero.
The villa is perched up on a small hill with a great view.
Thanks to Miriam and Richard for a great time. We will definitely come back.

“A superb villa with all mod cons”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were an extended family, 3 generations ranging in age from 74 down to 3.The villa was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. Excellent bedrooms with (mostly) en-suite bathrooms, spacious living room with wifi and satellite TV and DVD player, a well-equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area, a lovely pool with plentiful lounging and seating furniture and a BBQ. There was nothing we wished we could have had. The area is very nice, loads of beaches, ATMs, supermarkets and tavernas within easy distance by car. The nearby management office is staffed by a very helpful and charming Areti. All in all, as the title says, a wonderful villa holiday was had!

Liked best: Watching my youngest grandchildren gain confidence in the pool. Lovely views.
Liked least: Neighbours a tad noisy. But then so were we if we coulod have been overheard. Approach road from main road a bit 'hairy'.

“Perfect family location , even better than we hoped !”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Ideal location for a large family or group of friends , sun on the pool all day long but plenty of shade and quiet areas to find if needed. The owners provided recommendations for local tavernas and supermarkets all of which were enjoyed. Nearby beaches were safe to swim and snorkel and were not overcrowded.

“Perfect - we couldn't have asked for more!”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Such a well thought out, spacious villa and so well equipped. We had 3 generations - 8 adults (one in a wheelchair), a toddler and a baby and never felt on top of eachother or like we needed for anything. Areti, the local manager is a gem and nothing was too much trouble. The villa is beautifully and thoughtfully set out with the different seating areas for either maximum or minimum sun and the pool is a good size too! It is also genuinely wheelchair accessible with ramps and a good spacious wet room (with shower stool). It was our first visit to Crete and we loved the atmosphere, the people and the local town had everything we could wish for, especially the bakery! All in all an excellent holiday and we would all recommend this beautiful villa.

Thank you so much for your review, it really helps. We also promise to install a beer fridge outside near the BBQ and make sure a cool box is always at hand in the villa for trips to the beach

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

It wasn't until my visit to the beautiful Villa Lagada in May 2016 that I realised how much I had missed Greece, the people, the culture, the views. Crete, Makry Gialos and the Villa Lagada are a winning combination. In my opinion there cannot be a better equipped home from home to spend time in. Clean, everything for 10 plus people and as the property sits at the top of the hill, with no one to overlook, outstanding views of mountains and the sea. We walked up gorges to sleepy grecian villages, drank far too much and made some wonderful friends - we will be back.
