“We stepped off the spinning world and re-discovered ourselves” The Villa exceeded our expectations, the location and the views are to die for we spent many hours on the roof terrace just watching the world go buy. Rush hour consisted of 6 cars leaving the beach. There is a beach to suit all tastes in fact on some days we had a beach to ourselves.
The food was fantastic in all the Taverna and with one only 2 minutes walk away you can drink & walk!.
Great instructions on how to get to the villa a normal car is fine we had a Panda, next time we will get a 4by4 just so we can explore more.
Will we return of course as soon as we can find someone to look after the kids.!
“Fantastic views” Many thanks for our fortnights stay in your superb villa (23/09/16-7/10/16). Everything as stated in description with quick and helpful responses from owner. Superb location with easy access to sites and ammenities.
“Beautiful villa and amazing hospitality” Villa is very nice, perfectly maintained, well equipped and surrounded by Mediterranean garden.
Location is quiet, remote, on the hillside and with beautiful sea views, but on the same time not far away from village and beach. It will take only 3-4 minutes by car to reach village where you will find many restaurants or taverns and 4-5 minutes to the nearest beach. However, car is must if you are planning to stay at this property.
Everything was smooth: from booking, arrival until departure. Eva was not available evening we arrived, so her mother waited for as at meeting point on coastal road. Old lady speaks English very good, showed way to villa, gave introduction to property and drive thru tour – where supermarkets are located and best places to eat. Welcome pack worth to be mentioned – one of the best we ever received.
Hospitality of Eva and her husband Sakis was amazing, we felt like being part of their family.
Kivotos Villa is the perfect place to stay and we will definitely return there one day.
1. Coordinates for GPS navigation N35.35370 E24.54327 – it’s easy to arrive;
2. Don’t be too friendly with a cat as it might become little intrusive.
“Holiday Bliss” It really doesn't get much better than this.A perfect apartment, beautifully located in an unspoilt Cretan village. If you want to chill out, this is the place for you.Your hosts are so friendly and helpful.The village is charming and hasn't been ruined by mass tourism or overdevelopment. Plenty of authentic tavernas to relax in each evening, great local beaches and well placed for hiring a car and exploring this wonderful island.
“amazing” I would like to say we had the most wonderful holiday, the villa was everything it lived upto and more, the owner Georgia was the most warming and welcoming of hosts and extremely helpful regarding helping us with the local people and places, who again were the most friendly i have come across in my travels.
I would rcommend a car but taxis were just as easy to use and there is a regular bus service with air conditioning which was lovely.
The resturant were good but again ask the locals they know the best ones.
our time at Ariadni was peaceful ,quiet, and most of all very relaxing.
