We were travelling with 3 teenagers (15, 16 and 17). The villa location is excellent, about 15 minutes from Chania and it is perfectly situated to use as a base to visit western Crete. The villa itself is upscale, beautifully decorated and really has all of the amenities that one might need. Despina is a charming hostess, always ready to help out with useful information. Last but not least, there is daily maid service (Kudos to Maria for keeping the household in perfect order). The villa is even more beautiful than the pictures on their website. thank you Despina for a superb week!
