A perfect little villa with a lovely view, perched on the hillside overlooking Plakias and a couple of minutes walk from Sellia. Sellia is a charming enough village with 3 or 4 tavernas (we only tried three of them and they were all excellent), a shop and a couple of craft shops. Plakias is a 5 min drive down the hill, with more bars, cafes, restaurants, ice cream places etc., though you could walk (30-40mins) I wouldn't fancy the hill on the way back with kids!
The villa is modern, cleans and fresh and well appointed with aircon in all rooms, tv, wifi, indoor/outdoor dining areas, bbq etc, and the pool is the right size for a splash about. (The only tiny omission was there was no kettle!)
The owners were lovely and very friendly and always available by sms if there's a problem, and sent a cleaner for the house and one for the pool twice each during our stay (at times to suit us).
It's ideally placed for lovely beaches like Damnoni and the palm-tree lined Palm Beach and only a 30 min drive from the beautiful historic old town of Rethymno.
Great value and for a our first trip to Crete left us planning a return.
