We loved our stay at the villa. The photos of the villa are completely accurate - the best view (which the photos don't show) is actually from the balcony in the master bedroom which is magical. The pool is large, and (unlike most other villas), the patio area can be locked which provides an additional level of safety for young children. We also loved the location which is perfect - close to Chania (about 30 mins drive) and one hour from Rethymno. In addition, the drive up the hills to the villa provides for jaw dropping views. We were here for 8 days and there was a cleaner included in the price, but we would recommend paying a little extra for additional cleaning help (I recall it is about 6 EURO per hour). Finally, Laia who runs the property with George is absolutely amazing, she was always on hand by email and she gave us such helpful information about anything we needed (she was even able to arrange a dr appointment in Chania for us!), and that really made a huge different for us.
One point to note, is that there is no air conditioning but an under floor cooling system and fans. This was fine, but it took us a day or so to get used to it. Finally, there are lovely flowers but this draws wasps which means it was a little difficult on occasion to eat outside (which is probably normal in the area).
All in all, we loved our time, and cant wait to come back.
We had a wonderful holiday in this house. It is a very spacious house and the pool is big and the boys's loved it. We went with our 3 boys age 3,7 and 8. The house has a big terrace with gates you could lock, so the children could not get into the pool alone. The stairs inside are not for small children, would not leave under 3 year olds to go up and Down alone in the house.
It is a very peacefull area and we loved watching the Sun go down. I have never had such an amazing view. I would recommend this house very much and the service and helpfulness was very high. Hope to go back again some Day .
