"Friendly, sunny Crete"

We spent nearly a month there. There were 3 families with 3 kids. We tried to find a place suitable for a group like this (separate bedroom with bathrooms, big kitchen and a dining room). There was enough space for a noisy company. The surrounding territory is spacey and not dangerous for playing. The villa is clean, well equipped and situated in a place without any other building. The owners are hospitable, kind and very friendly people ready to come and help 24 hours a day. every time we needed something they were eager to do a favor for us (buy a wheel for the car, find a doctor for a baby, clean the house, phone someone). Thanks a lot for everything. The food was home made and fresh for a reasonable price.
As for the beaches, one will need a car to reach the nearest. But they are really worth visiting. The sea is clean and warm and beaches are not overcrowded. I think is not my last visit there. Oh, yes, the price paid is really good)))

"Wonderful views"

We stayed here 19/10-6/11 2012th. We are a family of two adults and four children ages 3-12. There was ripe figs and pomegranates in the garden which we picked and enjoyed, especially the children. The pool has a children's section that fits our 3-year old perfectly and the barbeque is next to the pool, which is good since we used this and simultaneously could oversee the children. There was also a dining area where we ate dinner a few evenings in front of a bonfire we lit in the barbeque. The kitchen and living room have a good design. Since we cook all the food ourselves, this was important. Everywhere you look, it is truly amazing views from the villa. The hosts were in place and were able to answer questions and rearrange. They were very accommodating. Most days we went to a beach(5 different), but some days we just relaxed by the pool at home and the kids went elk hunting in the garden.
