“Great”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and I and our 19 month old son, stayed at Villa Klio for 10 days in early April and would highly recommend it. A beautifully designed and maintained villa, with views of both the wonderful western cretan hills full of olive groves, and also the sea. In the evenings there is a wonderful smell of all the surrounding flowers and shrubs, very meditteranean and delicious!

The villa lies in a sweet little village called Sfinari, which consists of a few small shops and some tavernas. A lovely 10 minute walk downhill through the lower part of the village, past little houses, olive and lemon groves and vegetable patches, takes you to the local beach which also has 3 or 4 small sleepy tavernas. We really liked Sfinair, and it felt like 'real Crete'-children playing ball in the road, a few old ladies in black chatting away, an old boy making his own honey, a speciality round the area.

Its a great location where you are about midpoint between the beautiful beach of Elafonisi-an hours drive through wonderfully wild mountains, Kissamos, the local town, about 20 minutes away, and the venetian fortress town of Hania, about an hour away.

The villas itself is well stocked-washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, cooker and hob, AC and all the utensils you will need. The rooms are really lovely, new and modern and very clean, but designed with the traditional cretan style in mind. Bedrooms are cosy, but in April we would have liked a few more blankets. The downstairs is a lovely open plan kitchen/living/diner area and we were very happy there in the evenings, as well as the outdoor space which on 2 levels is beautifully maintained and spacious. The pool is not heated so in early April was quite chilly but I imagine in mid-Summer its fine.

The owner Vassilis dropped round a few times to settle us in and see if we needed anything, and was very friendly and hospitable. His mother-in law lives in a house nearby so was helpful when we were settling in.

Overall, a lovely, relaxing stay where our family could have nice times together.

“Perfect villa close to the most beautiful beaches in Crete”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We booked Villa Klio because because we wanted to stay on the west side of the island near to the most beautiful beaches in Crete. My expectations of the villa itself were not too high because the photographs showed a carefully selected angle of the sea, a small looking pool, the three villas appeared to be on top of each other and there were no photos at all of the interior.

But the reality far exceeded my expectations. When we arrived I didn't dare raise my hopes in case we'd got the wrong place! Villa Klio was a little gem and very well maintained. There was a good view of the sea and mountains from the balconies and pool - true there were a couple of less attractive buildings directly ahead but we didn't notice them with the stunning scenery around. The pool was bigger than expected (the kids spent hours in there), we barely noticed the two other villas, and the interior was really nice - I couldn't understand why the downstairs and bedrooms hadn't been photographed.

Like the previous guests we were welcomed with Sofia's (Vasilis' mother-in-law's) delicious moussaka and a bottle of chilled white wine; a lovely touch which was very much appreciated after a long day's travelling.

There was air conditioning in all the rooms and a jacuzzi bath! Unlike previous guests we didn't find the dog barking and rooster a problem if you close the shutters at night which also gives total blackout and a good night's sleep.

A couple of times there were problems with the water not running but this was not the fault of the villa but rather different sections of the village have their water supply temporarily suspended so there is enough to go round as water is in limited supply. This did not put a damper on our stay (no pun intended!)

My wife thought the villa might benefit from having a page or two of recommended places to visit (beaches, towns, restaurants etc) but the owner Vasilis was very obliging and always available when we needed him.

We also loved Sunset restaurant on the beach with it's friendly service and delicious authentic fresh food.

Our favourite beaches were Elafonisi and Balos Lagoon with their clear turquoise waters and pink sands. We got up at 5 one morning to drive to Balos along its dirt track (watch those tyres!) but it was worth it - you have a few hours with this paradise practically to yourself until noon when the ferries invade and hundreds of tourists pour out (don't worry, they'll be gone by three!)

Lots of driving round windy mountain roads in our little Fiat Panda - the mountains are what adds to the beauty and uniqueness of Crete.

And if you want night life, Chania is only an hour's drive with its attractive Venetian harbour and humming friendly vibe.

Highly recommended.
