“A wonderful Holiday”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent an enjoyable 9 Nights at Villa Nafsika in the beautiful region of Western Crete.The Villa is conveniently situated close to all of the local villages of Georgioupoli ,Kalives and Almirda. Our favourite local beach was just 15 minutes away. Each morning we enjoyed having breakfast outside on the terrace admiring the lovely countryside. The Pool was beautiful and is a good size for swimming. It is very private and set in lovely gardens. We would recommend the Restaurants in Georgioupoli on the water front that serve good traditional Greek food with a lovely variety of choice and good service. Authentic Crete were very helpful prior to booking the holiday and we found Sandra the local contact in Crete very useful giving advice about the surrounding area and always to hand if we needed her assistance. We had a wonderful holiday and would certainly return.

“Lovely situation”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Beautiful garden and pool, and the villa has excellent accommodation. The area is very unspoiled with good access to Chania - very interesting old town - and the beaches at Almyrida and Georgopolis. We were a large family party from babies to grandparents, and it was ideal, our two year old adored the paddling pool.

We had difficulties with the airconditioning which only seemed to work occasionally, and in July the bedrooms got terribly hot when it wasn't on.

Overall, a great holiday, and a perfect villa for the spring and autumn.

“Beautiful location and well designed villa. Would definately go again!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a fantastic time at Villa Nafsika. The mountain views are simply breathtaking. We travelled with 2 young children and 2 Grandparents and the layout and size of the bedrooms all with en suite and spacious downstairs area meant that we had plenty of space for everyone. Everything lived up to our expectations. There were just a couple of snags but nothing major but worth noting. The sliding doors in the living area were impossible to lock properly (not ideal!) and there was no wifi even though it said on the website that there would be plus the aircon didn't seem to work whilst we were there. It wasn't too hot but if it had been August it would have been pretty uncomfortable. Overall though, these snags didn't affect our overall enjoyment and we would definitely go back again and recommend it to others. A really special place in a very unique location and we would also recommend the pizza restaurant in the village! Oh and the beds are very comfortable!

Dear Ruth,
Thank you for your comments! The sliding doors just needed an adjustment and they are fine now, I wish this was mentioned dutring your stay of one week, so we would have sent the maintenance!
Air conditioning in villa Nafsika, is undrfloor cooling, and each room/area has its own temperature control, so guests can adjust to their required indoors temperature. It is adjusted notto operate if the interior temperature is 18C or lower, as one would only need to cool the villa if the interior temperature is above 18C. I can assure you that it works perfectly in the whole year, as well as in July and August, as we have repeat guests (they have already booked some weeks for 2015!).
The internet: there were promises that there would be a telephone line in the villa area, but this has not yet happened unfortunately. The Vodafone shop in Kalives, sell sim cards for internet (for Ipad, or smart phones) and the cost is 1 euro per day for this, as our travel advisor mentioned during her visit. So until the telephone wiring is installed by our phone company, the mobile internet solution is offered.
Thank you once again for choosing Nafsika for your week in May!
With warm regards
Ariadne
