"What an idyllic place!"
Our villa was absolutely lovely, with terraces at the front overlooking Souda bay and at the back looking towards the mountains behind. So much thought has gone into the design of these villas - there are little shady sitting areas, two fabulous pools, a great barbecue area, children's playground and lots of fruit trees, plants and vines. There is absolute quiet, apart from the occasional sheeps bell from the mountains, and the views are to die for. The owners are so friendly and hospitable, and cannot do enough for you. We will definitely holiday here again. Highly recommended for people who like to be away from the crowds, but in a great position for exploring Western Crete.

We enjoyed our stay in the magnificent country of Crete and were very happy with the accomodation and surroundings but most of all; Stefanos and Roula are the most warm-hearted hosts one can imagine.
