A stunning location and setting for this wonderful Villa overlooking both mountains and the sea. The Villa was spotlessly clean and offred extremely comfortable and stylish furnishings and everything needed for a holiday. Truly a home from home. It is delightful , spacious and had places outside for quiet retreats and relaxation. The salt water pool is large enough for everyone to enjoy.
The Villa is close to local amenities and is an artist's paradise! I thoroughly loved my time here and would recommend it highly to anyone seeking a little piece of authentic Crete and for a relaxing stay in superb accommodation. A treasure of a place in every sense! Thank you to the owners for allowing us to share your delightful and very special home in the sun!
I can't wait to revisit!!!
The villa is stylishly appointed with attention to every detail. The views are stunning, with mountains, the sea and the scattered buildings of the local village, providing everchanging interest. The villa has a range of seating areas to relax, with both sun and shade and the pool is great for a refreshing dip. The local village which is easily accessible on foot, is relaxing to visit, quiet, friendly but with key services. The local restaurants and bars provide good local food. It is well situated to visit local beaches and villages,
This is somewhere I will certainly return to!
Such a lovely place, in a great village, with nice tavernas nearby. The pool was bigger than we expected and having it heated meant we could use it everyday. The staff at the villa were friendly and helpful and we had a wonderful time. We will definitely come back.
Villa Koumos Suited all our needs perfect location ,peace and tranquillity,and
maintained to a high standard ,
We certainly will be using Villa Koumos again.
We had a wonderful family holiday at Villa Koumos. Definitely a much higher standard than other villas we've rented. It had every facility we wanted like a big pool, aircon, wifi, dvds, books. The views were wonderful and the village of Gavalochori had all we wanted. We particularly liked the photo driving instructions provided. It made it really easy to find the villa. We will definitely come back.
This is our 3rd trip to villa Koumos - it's become our favourite place for a family holiday. The villa is lovely with fabulous views and the tavernas in the village are lovely and very accommodating of young children. The hill back to the villa is a good bit of exercise to burn off the calories of all the lovely home cooked treats.
Promised to be a lovely family holiday, having rented similar villa's in the area before.
However first thing on Monday morning, we were rudely awoken to the sound of jack hammers and excavators.
We contacted the owner straight away, who in turn sent round the caretaker. He asked not to contact the owner again due to a bereavement, which we honoured.
The noise was horrendous and well above the H&S limit in the UK and would go on from 8am to 5pm and sometimes even on a Saturday. It made it impossible to sit outside and most unpleasant inside, rendering the house a no-go zone by day.
We contacted the owner about a month later, feeling that was fair time. We requested a partial refund, as we had the choice of many houses and had we been made aware there was a potential for building noise, we would have chosen elsewhere. The owner offered a small discount on a second stay.
Due to the dishonesty of the owner, and the lack of recourse, we have never used owners direct again.
