“Fantastic Villas with Excellent Facilities & Services in a Perfect Location”

We first found these villas in September 2010, when we stayed in Villa Artemis. We enjoyed our time there so much, we returned again this year, with our extended family, and chose Villa Ariadne. The villas are part of a small group of five villas just outside of the village of Gavalochori, a small traditional Cretan village, with a few shops, including an INKA mini market and a lovely bakery. There are also a few restaurants - Gavalianos Kafenes, is very good and excellent value for money. Villa Artemis and Villa Ariadne both have two swimming pools - a lap pool which the adults used and a smaller pool, ideal for children to swim and play in. There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas, so it is easy to get shade when the day gets very hot and the owner also supplies sun towels, so no need to pack these. The kitchen in both villas were fully equipped which made eating in very easy and convenient for a larger group. There are two master bedrooms both en-suite and two twin bedrooms with share a bathroom - with plenty of towels. The villas are exceptionally clean - a wonderful lady called Mrs Froso calls every day and will help with anything you need. We were arriving late on the first day and wanted to have some items for breakfast the following morning - the owner said 'just send a list' and Mrs Froso got us everything we requested. The villas are exactly as described on the owner's website - so you can rely on the photos and facilities listed being available. The owner, Christos Skalkos, is very accommodating, responding quickly to emails, with nothing being a problem. If you are looking for a location, where you wake to the sound of roosters in the morning, look out on mountains during the day and enjoy listening to the crickets in the evening, all in five star luxury, then the Apokoron villas are for you.
