“Just like promised.... or even better!”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Everything was just like we would have wanted it to be! Starting with the helpful contact and easy booking procedure to the support during our stay: it was just perfect!

The house is simply beautiful in its architecture and equipment. Everything looked rather new-ish and was clean and practical. The setting of the house towards the sea on a hillside is stunning and the sunsets even in October, when the sun sets behind the mountains and colours the sea and the sky orange are breathtaking. There is another rather similar house just below the level of the Swimming pool, still the setting guarantees everybody's privacy.

Sfinari is a small village where there are hardly any tourists, which gives you a chance to have a chat with the lovely, friendly people living there. There are two mini-markets just down by the small street (hardly any traffic) and a few tavernas.

The beach in Sfinari lies in a nook at the foot of the mountain. As it has pebbles of different sizes, you'd better bring some swimshoes. If you want a sandy beach with some good waves, drive to Falasarna. It takes you around 15-20 minutes via the serpentines to get there, but it is worth it. In October it was not crowded, and the water was nice and warm.

Down by the sea directly on the beach, there are three tavernas. You can easily walk there - but you should bring a torch, as it will be pitchblack in autumn in the evenings. We loved Captain Fidias and his family and team! If you want fresh fish which is deliciously grilled and typical Greek appetizers as well as Raki, you have to go there! Apparently, they are family with the house owner, and treated us just like extended family.

All in all, we are 100% happy with the vacation we had in Villa Antonia!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Fantastic villa. Pictures dont do it justice. Owner kind. Left us food in the fridge and meal for the first night. The location is quiet and amazingly beautiful. Hire a car and snorkel in the wonderful bays. Get a boat to see Balos later in the afternoon. Sunset is awesome, even more so when you eat down in sfinari front at sunset bar. Family food was best we had. Lots of extras free with wonderful backdrop. Best side of Crete by far.
