    Additional amenities & feature info
    The large double room has its own en-suite shower room. The other two, twin-bedded rooms share a bathroom which has a shower over the bath. The cloakroom is just off the utility area and contains toilet and sink. This is really useful when you don't want to go to the bedroom bathrooms.
    All three bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe space for storage and there is a recess in the landing which is convenient for storing your suitcases until you need them again. There is a safe in the wardrobe of the double room. Each bedroom has a chair, bedside tables with lamps, dressing table and stool and mirror, all made by local craftsmen in a traditional Cretan design. We respectfully remind you that smoking is not allowed in the villa at any time, for the comfort and safety of all our guests. Our Eng...

    Airport: Chania: 11.8 mi
    Ferry: Souda: 8.1 mi
    Most major airlines, such as Easyjet, Jet2, Monarch, Thomas Cook and Thomson, fly direct from the UK into Chania and Heraklion, usually on Tuesdays. The villa is approximately 40 minutes drive from Chania airport and approximately 90 minutes drive from Heraklion depending on traffic. It is also possible to fly to Athens and then get the ferry to Souda. This takes longer with an average ferry time of six to eight hours but can be cheaper. There are also flights from Athens and numerous European towns direct to Chania and Heraklion.

This is an outstanding villa in a beautiful part of Crete - it has my unequivocal recommendation. We stayed for one week over Easter. The weather was lovely and we spent the week in a mix of sunning on the terrace and by the pool, and sightseeing around the island. The villa is perfect and has everything (and I mean... more
