"A lovely house, a gorgeous setting and every amenity we needed. Highly recommended!"

We loved staying at Aloe villa. It offered every convenience for a family holiday, such as easy access to beautiful beaches (5 mins drive), to the village supermarket, restaurants and cafes(300m), to a big city(Rethymno,10mins drive). At the same time it was serene enough or us to feel the peace and quiet associated with an island holiday. Dusk, with only the birds singing and no other noise was our favourite part of the day. The house itself was impeccably clean and well-kept and easy to get around for our toddler. We are planning to return next summer with friends.
