This property is excellent, well finished and a great location. Everything you would require from a holiday is in place here. A car would be necessary though and parking inside the gates is not a problem.
The landlady , Manya, couldn't have shown us any more hospitality. An excellent host who cared about the guests at her property. Wonderful star lit skies at night and the pleasant sounds of the goat and sheep bells too.
As said all facilities in place here. We would certainly recommend this holiday let and will certainly re visit in the future.
We, my husband and I spent a wonderful week in this very comfortable Villa, with a big terrace, with a nice view. The house is located in the mountains quite alone among olive fields, so it is very calm there; the street up from Paleochora can be a challenge for non-experienced drivers, but it is a very idyllic way.
On our arrival day we were welcomed by our host, manya in paleochora, who accomponied us to the house; there she offered us a basket with coffee, tea, marmelade, peaches, eggs, milk,.... and local wine and local olive-oil and also recomondations, what to visit in the surrounding (beaches, Samaria gorge,...)
The Villa is well equipped (TV, SAT, w-lan, but also in the kitchen - everything you need) and there is air condition in the bed-room, which allows us to sleep, altough it was hot wheater during our stay.
To Paleochora you need 20 min. by car, but after already 10 minutes you reach the next village after Prodromi, where the villa is, called Anidiri. There is a Taverna with delicious food.
We liked to make trips through the mountains by car, I liked so much the oleander with violet and white blossoms, which you can find along the road.
Manya is a very nice and caring host, she even cooked for us a traditional greek meal.
It was such a wonderful holiday in this wonderful house - we will come back, perhaps in March or April to make some walking-tours
When we arrived in the Village Paleochora we felt immidiately welcomed by the dearest host, Manya, who picked us up, and felt at home when we arrived at the Archon Villa.
The Villa is so beautiful with its wonderful scenary you have from the terrace and the balcony. The surrounding is so quiet, the place is a real oasis.
After just a day we felt so relaxed and at home.
The house is stylish with modern furniture. Everything is very clean and there is nothing you could miss.
Manya was so nice to borrow us a buggy for our one year old daughter and in the house there is plenty of toys for the younger guests.
Also the kitchen is very well equipped.
There are several routes for hiking just by starting at the villa. They offered us such a breath-taking beauty of the Crete nature.
And to go to the beaches is just a couple of minutes. We recommend Anidri as it is a very nice scenery with nice shady trees and a little restaurant. But also the other beaches are just worth to visit.
As I write this lines I feel I could just return immediately.
Manya is a very caring owner, she helped us finding good restaurants and hikes. She even could figure out how to open the front lid of our Ford Focus (it's really tricky! :)
And anytime we met her, she always gave us delicious home made food.
Spoken in other words: If you don't choose for this place you will miss a lot!
