“Enchanting”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We rented the Villa Athena and the adjacent Patrino for two months in the Spring. Family and friends came to visit during our stay. The location was excellent for the varying interests of our guests. A short walk to a lovely beach of jewel like pebbles, an easy drive into Heraklion, good access to archaeological sites and beautiful mountain locations. Beach goers, history buffs, amateur archaeologists, museum goers, hikers - there was literally something for everyone here.

The location was also very convenient to shopping in Hersonissos, whether for groceries, tourist items, a chip for your cellphone or a place to go dancing.

The houses were nicely appointed - not luxurious but absolutely everything that we needed. The surrounding gardens were well tended and lent a lovely atmosphere to the property. The surrounding olive grove gives a wonderful sense of seclusion.
