“Ideal venue for large groups”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2015

Villas Angelos and Helios set amongst the olive groves between the village of Gavalohori and the resort of Almerida provided the ideal venue for a peaceful holiday within a 5 minute drive of restaurants, shops and the beach. The villas offered spacious accomodation and large pool area allowing our group to get together in either villa. They were clean and well equipped and the management was on hand to deal with any queries. Although we had hire cars we were able to walk down to the beach when required which was useful. I would certainly recommend the villas to others.

Owner's reply: The walk to the beach is about 25-30 minutes. It is a nice walk mostly downhill with great mountain views. I also enjoy walking up from the beach especially after a nice meal at one the many beach side restaurants but if needed there is a very good local taxi service to get you home

“Fantastic base in beautiful area”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

Great, well maintained villa with views of White Mountains and plenty of space for all of our grown up family. There are a small number of neighbouring villas, but each has its own pool and Villa Helios feels very private. Lovely local walks to nearby village of Gavalochori with taverna, bakery and small shops. Long sandly beach at Almyrida where snorkelling trips are available from the beach front. Owner John dealt with our booking very efficiently and detailed information included very clear directions from Chania airport. We did as John suggested and hired a car from Auto Club of Crete and that was also hassle free. Would highly recommend.

Owner's reply: We have just 5 villas on our 4 1/2 acre olive grove of which 4 are rented as holiday homes. They all have private pools, are spaced 60-80m apart and surrounded by olive trees so as the guest says they are private and peaceful.

“Nice villa in a superb setting”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2014

The title says it all! A good quality villa with an excellent pool, set in a rural olive grove with a comfortable distance from other properties. 20 minutes walk to the local village with some excellent places to eat and 35 minutes walk to the beach. The owner and manager are also very helpful. Excellent!

“Life in the country”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2013

Just spent a week in this villa and had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay. Though a car is needed it is only a few minutes to civilisation and we found a couple of lovely restaurants in the next village that we walked to every night (20 minutes walk). The accommodation was very clean and well maintained, with ample space and air conditioning in all rooms. Having your own pool is a great bonus and we made the most of this every day after a morning's exploring. There are other villas in the area but you are not overlooked, the pool area is private due to the Olive trees all around. Would definitely consider booking again. The only improvement to the property would have been internet access, but would still go again.

“Villa in peaceful location amongst olive groves”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

This very nice villa was exactly as advertised. It is set in a secluded location but near enough to a local village and seaside town. We had very young children but the gated swimming pool makes it safe. The views from the upstairs bedrooms are superb. The villa is far enough away from the other villas so you don't feel overlooked. We didn't see our neighbours at all! It was well equipped and our only complaint was a shortage of working bedside lamps. The village of Gavalochori has a lovely atmosphere in the evening and we liked a tavern in the back streets very much.

“The Owners were delightful, helpful, knowledgeable and well organised - a lovely place to go for an autumn break.”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2013

Arrange hire car through owners - again really helpful & well-priced. Lovely taverna 20mins walk in nearest village, and owners have contact with local businesses offering shooting, guided walks etc., so great area in which to relax, or to get busy.

“Little slice of peace”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2013

Went with 3 kids and other family members and hired two villas. Was perfect for what we needed the villas are exactly as they show on website and although fairly basic in good condition and clean and actually a bit bigger than I thought. Only suggestion would be to perhaps move the sofas so that could face other wall as may allow for more seating and a larger tv. Would not normally watch tv but with kids was good to be able to put a movie on to get out if the heat in the middle of the day! Pool was great very clean and checked regularly. Def need a car as with kids the walk to the beach was too far, the beach is perfect for families shallow waters And very quiet. Overall we all had a brilliant holiday very relaxing (not something I often say with 3 young kids!!) will def be returning .

“A superb spring getaway - plenty of sunshine in a fantastic tranquil setting.”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

A fabulous place, rural yet within easy reach of amenities if you want them. A car is essential. You could spend the whole week enjoying the pool by the villa. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Spring was a superb time to visit, warm with plenty of sunshine. The surrounding countryside was still refreshingly green.

“Fabulous location and views.”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

On the outskirts of the proper, traditional Cretan village Gavalohori and with spectacular views of the snow topped Lefka Ori mountains from the bedrooms, this villa was in our ideal location. The olive grove setting gave our large family plenty of space without upsetting the neighbours. A lovely pool with lots of loungers, outside dining space and barbecue were all well used.

Owner's reply: The mountains are beautiful and we designed the villa to ensure good views from the terraces and balconies off the bedrooms and the pool terrace. We are always glad when they are put to good use.
