Stefano's and Roula's villas are amazing! They welcomed us like we were family. The Villa Urania was perfect for the 5 of us. They had supplied us with all the basics for our first day or two - coffee, wine, beer, bread, milk, etc. Roula had even baked us a delicious chocolate cake! Our first evening they came by with a jar of fresh peach marmalade and to give us information about the local area and where the best fish was served - and he was right on! The fresh olive oil and bottle of raki on our table was perfect! Mid week, Roula had made us baclava and they continued to be very helpful when we had questions about where to go! The pools at the Retreat were beautiful and clean! All in all, it was one of the best vacations we have had, thanks Stefanos and Roula! When we return to Crete, our first choice will be to stay again!

There are two shared pools and a large BBQ area containing both a BBQ spit and traditional baking oven, while the tavern situated high up above the villas will take care of any appetite desire.
