“What is not to like (O;”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We (two families) spent over a week in this palace at the top of the mountain close to the habor and bay of Milatos.
Lots of space, lovely location, EVERYTHING you need within reach in a clean and well kept superior villa, that you wish were your own (O;
There is no doubt that we will visit Crete again - and when we do, our hopes are high for another stay at Villa Orianna.
Greetings to the fantastic hosts

“Wonderful views - the real Crete, off the tourist track”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Villa Orianna for a week with our grown up daughters and their partners, and it was perfect for a group who just want to chill out by a lovely pool away from the hurly-burly of a tourist resort.

The owners, Terry and Jo, couldn't have been more friendly. I had several phone/email conversations with Terry before the holiday, and he offered to meet us at the airport (all part of the service!) and guide us back to the Villa - about an hour's drive culminating in some very steep winding roads through the hills. When our plane was delayed by several hours, Terry and Jo were still quite happy to welcome us at the airport, even though it was about two in the morning!

The villa is very clean and comfortable. There are two double bedrooms (one ensuite) and a third bedroom with twin beds. There's also a double sofa bed upstairs. The huge open plan kitchen / living room is very well equipped (including two fridges), and Terry has installed a sound system which allows you to select speakers all over the house - and even outside - to play your music on. Terry's UKTV website allows you to watch all the British TV channels, should you so wish...

The wow factor is the view: looking down the hillside you get a commanding vista of the sea, with the charming little village of Milatos Beach on the water's edge. Drive down through the tiny hamlet of Milatos and on to Milatos Beach (only a few minutes' drive, but too steep to walk there and back) and you get the true Greek experience: a handful of tavernas on the waterfront and a sleepy little village square. Our favourite taverna was Sokrates: excellent food and terrific service!

Proper sandy beaches and a supermarket are a little further west towards the resort of Malia. You do need a car for this location, but the seclusion and quality of the villa more than make up for this.

“FABULOUS VILLA / LOCATION - great rental / stay”
Reviewed 6 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Spectacular location overlooking Milatos bay with great sea views out over the pool. Idyllic little Greek church on hillside in the distance. A proper villa / room with a view !

Villa has plenty of parking, good size pool (nice and clean), pretty little garden with BBQ area. Plenty of nice cool shade on the large terrace with comfy cane / wicker patio set (ideal for dining al fresco) as well as sun loungers around the pool for the sun lovers. The interior is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, with a large airy open plan main living area leading on to large terrace and pool.

Fully equipped, the villa provided everything we could need with lots of extra touches from the owners Terry and Jo who were discreetly on hand in the village if needed but otherwise we were left to enjoy our stay – which we did. Loved it so much we are looking to go back this summer.
