“Friendly, flexible and peaceful accommodation”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Villa is made up of two adjoining almost identical structures. Each has its own well kitted out kitchen with sitting room. bathrooms, separate toilets, and so on. The outside area is shared - pool, barbecue, sun bathing areas. There are four double bedrooms in all, and there is additional bedroom space in a mezzanine area above each kitchen (although this is obviously not very private.) The rooms are all air conditioned, and the downstairs bedrooms have electronic shutters for absolute peace and quiet.

The Villa itself is located in a sparsely built area with ravishing views of both the sea and mountains. There is an almost finished building next door, but apart from that being eventually occupied, we could safely make as much commotion as we liked with no neighbours to annoy.

This arrangement meant, for us, that the younger members could 'take over' one of the kitchen and mezzanine areas - and make as much mess and noise as they liked; whilst the others could retreat to their private rooms, or use the other kitchen and sitting room for quieter activities.

We normally ate on one of the balconies overlooking the pool and the sea; or by the barbecue area - which could easily handle a group of twelve with no hint of strain.

There are stairs to all the bedrooms, (although, at a pinch, the sitting room sofas could be used as beds) but from the outside there is stepless access to the downstairs rooms. So the Villa would only just be OK for disabled people. The access to the pool and sunbathing areas is only either via the bedrooms, or through each front door of either side of the Villa. This was slightly inconvenient, although it's difficult to see how this could be resolved.

This area, in common with much of Crete, seemed to get its fair share of windy days whilst we were there. (But even the local beaches weren't so wind blown.) This meant that at times, pool toys had to be kept safe from blowing away; but such was the temperature, that it never felt less than warm during these periods.

The whole Villa was cleaned immaculately every three days and bed sheets and towels were replaced; and the pool was cleaned every other day - when the rubbish was collected. The hosts were very friendly, and "Mum" presented us with a large tray of cooked food when she came to clean - which was much appreciated.

The agents were friendly too. The booking was well supported and there was polite but not over-intrusive messaging whilst we were staying at the Villa. We didn't need much in the way of assistance during our visit, but I would be pretty sure that their offer of help, of whatever nature, would be well supported.

The Villa is located about 5 minutes drive from Plakias. It is on a pretty steep hill, so although it was quite easy to walk down to the nearest bays, you wouldn't want to walk back up the hill in extreme heat. Plakias probably wouldn't win many prizes for its beauty; but there are a large number of friendly tavernas, supermarkets and other shops. We weren't over-impressed with the beach at Plakias, but there are (seemingly) innumerable beaches and bays within a short driving distance which would suit all tastes.

We will remember the magical clear blues and greens of the Mediterranean water. The full moon and stars reflected off the sea whilst enjoying an after-meal late-night drink by the pool. And above all, the good-natured friendliness of our hosts and other Cretans who we met on our journey.

In December we’ve made concrete appointments with our nine adult children (and partners) and we’ve booked both apartments for May. We were the third group who hired this place, because it was all newly build.
The apartments are located on a place with a panoramic view over the bay. At the evenings and night you have a romantic illumination of the swimming pool and the balconies. If you stay over there you will need to hire a car to visit places on the island.
The apartments are built side to side, but the other part can only be entered via a small gate of the balcony. This is very nice when you are with a large group. There is a lot of privacy, but also space for coming together.
We have played a lot in the swimming pool. Besides that we’ve walked to the small beaches in the surrounding and to Plakias. One of us has hired a bike and has conquered some mountain tops. We also visited other places on the island, like the beautiful harbour and the fort of Rethimnon.
We also used the large bbq and both kitchens several times to prepare our dinners. Kitchens are very well equipped and the place has comfortable furniture, including excellent beds, bathrooms, toilets, dish machines, chairs and lounge chairs etc.
The hosts are very, very friendly and kind and offer a lot of service. We could phone them whenever this would be needed. They speak German and English and offered us some special Greek products (drinks, honey and cakes). The place is cleaned half way, the pool is cleaned on a daily basis and also the garbage litter is emptied early in the morning.
We have had a wonderful time together with our extended family!
