We wanted to do a last minute trip to the sun, and had booked this within 10 mins.. never regretted it though!! We were pleasantly surprised, the apartment was spacious, we had two balconies to sit on. The gardens all around the apartments are precious <3. There were beautiful views out to the sea, as it's way up on the hill. The place was exactly like the photos. Lying by the pool I could sea the ocean in the distance. To get there it was only a walk downhill (back up was a bit more strenuous!) to the much busier (and much less pleasant) Chersonissos. This early in the season (May) we could use the facilities of "Star Beach" for free, there was a lovely little beach down there. At this time he beach was very quiet, and the lovely village of Koutouloufari was friendly & welcoming. A few great little restaurants were nearby, we especially enjoyed the one right next door.
Last but not least I have to mention the amazing staff at Galaxy Villas, who went above and beyond to make us feel at home!! They gave great advice on the surroundings, activities and bike rental, and very kindly returned my camera which I'd lost by the pool.
Breakfast was included and it was a pleasure, fresh Greek yoghurt, fruits, honey, nuts.. eating this in the morning sun by the pool was the best thing. Great value for money, this place! Would visit again in a heartbeat.
