I have never in my life been so close to the sea! Great to sleep in the night and listen to the music of waves. The bay of Lygaria is very quiet, protected from the wind and high sea, clean and clear water, ideal for vacation with children. Villa is bright and clean, has all possible and impossible amenities to live a happy quiet life. In September mosquitoes are not very disturbing. The only minus was the stairs from the second floor to the garden, my small kids liked to fall from them ))) And we did not use the swimming pool, because the water in the sea was much warmer )))
Dimitrios is a super host, ready to help with any question, give guidance on any possible topic from household staff to pharmaceutical issues and ideas about spare time and great cafeterias. Car rental is a must though, because if you stay longer than one week, you will get tired of only two restaurants and one small mini-market.
I wish to Dimitrios and his family success and prosperity and would definitely choose his villa for the next vacation in Crete.
I could not recommend this Villa enough. The location is amazing- directly on the beautiful quiet beach of Lygaria, with a gorgeous and large terrace overlooking it all, where we had all of our meals. There is a parking less than 20 meters away that is very convenient, as well as a small (but well stocked) supermarket walking distance from the house. It's a short 20 min drive to Heraklion and one hour from Rethymno- so centrally located on the island to do daytrips. Now to the hosts-They greeted us at the house, explained everything, told us that we could use everything in the home.
They were always available and very responsive to any questions we had.And wow- the moussaka we were greeted with was delicious.
The house has lots of beach towels and a fully equipped kitchen. We were 3 couples and the house had enough space for all of us. Thanks for a wonderful vacation and I hope other people will have the privilege to stay in this beautiful home.
