In April, we spent an excellent week in Villa Rea. Having stayed there with a family of four, there was ample space, a great pool, and a beautiful view of Lake Kournas. The house was the most complete we have ever rented, the owners thought of everything. The place is modern and was kept spotless clean. The owners were very helpful and welcomed us with fresh eggs, fresh fruit, home-baked cookies and cake, and raki. The location of the house, near Georgoupoli in between Chania and Rethymno, allowed for trips to almost every place on the island east of Iraklion. Knossos is still very doable. There are many restaurants near the house, even within walking distance.
Crete was wonderful. The food is very affordable and just very good. There are many places to visit ranging from beautiful beaches to snow-capped mountains, to interesting cultural and historic places. The people are very hospitable and kind. In short, a great stay in a great location!
