We arrived in the middle of the day and were quickly made welcome by owners George and Maria, and Michael, their barman and general Man-Friday - What a stunning place, and so well-run with real passion by George and Maria - who are very engaging hosts. The setting has been hand-crafted from the original hillside scrubland by George over the last 30 years, and the trees, pool, apartments, barbeque and outside ovens, and settings to eat and relax are just perfect.
We were immediately made to feel part of their family for whom nothing is too much trouble - Above all George and Maria love you to appreciate the Cretan food and culture - Marias evening dinners are superb and eaten on the rooftop watching the setting sun. The barbeques are a perfect opportunity to let your hair down and dance after some masterful food.
The beach is close, but we never went - as the pool side was quiet and like having a private villa and pool for most of the time!. Taxis are available only 100 m away, as the local tavernas are fairly uninspiring, and all the other local hotels and resorts are the dreaded 'all-inclusive'.
We will certainly return and wouldn't change any part of our two weeks there with George, Maria, Michael and our fellow guests of all nationalities. Result.
