“Lovely villa in a great location”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just returned from a really enjoyable week at Villa Mistiko. The owners (living upstairs) made us feel very welcome and gave us all the help and information we needed, without being at all intrusive. The villa had everything we needed - and we especially enjoyed the lovely pool and spacious private patio and gardens. The only very minor criticism was the very intermittent wifi signal. The little resort of Almyrida is a short walk down the hill (but not very accessible on foot for the elderly or infirm, which luckily we're not!) There were plenty of restaurants and bars to keep us happy for the week. The beautiful town of Chania is about a 40 minute drive away and well worth a day exploring. Also recommended are walks down the Samaria Gorge (for the fit - minibus pickups from the middle of Almyrida)and Imbros Gorge (for the less fit - you can drive yourself there). All in all a fab week - big thanks to Peter and Julie.

“Perfect villa in a perfect location”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Peter and Julie were kind, generous and fun and extremely helpful with their local knowledge without being the least intrusive. On our arrival there was fresh produce from their beautiful garden - strawberries, tomatoes, grapes, etc and their own eggs. Peter even drove us up to the next village to buy in a few provisions before we hired a car, which isn't strictly necessary, but does make the Cretan experience even more worthwhile. The villa is a short downhill walk to the shops, tavernas and local beaches, although having a disabled member in our party meant we spent a lot of the time around the lovely pool with its very comfortable sun beds. The villa is perfectly suitable for those with a disability but the short, rough track to the main road was unsuitable for a lightweight wheelchair. A taxi and then the hire car overcame this factor. The villa has a large barbeque area which was perfect for dining in, but the tavernas in town and up the road at Plaka were exceptional value and delicious. The rooftop bar at the hotel in town is well worth a visit for the view at the cocktail hour, the food was superb and the service friendly. The whole holiday was so relaxing - Almyrida is a very laid back resort, although obviously busier in season. Do go.

“An Idyllic villa in a picturesque location”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Absolutely wonderful stay. Beautiful house with lovely views, and a peaceful location. House is as well provided as you can imagine, a complete home from home, to make for a comfortable stay, with every luxury. Almyrida a charming village, fantastic food with a large choice of tavernas and wonderful beach. Villa situated perfectly, only a short walk from Almyrida's seafront, bars and food. Can also walk to Plaka, lovely traditional village, well worth a visit. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Can't wait to come back!”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

So glad to have found this wonderful property. Everything about it was perfect for our family of 6 (2 grandparents, 2 young children and us) Garden / pool area immaculately kept & looked after, inside was equally clean & well equipped. Peter & Julie are lovely people who were always on hand when needed for advice or for a chat without being intrusive. Hoping to return next year!

“A little slice of Heaven”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The villa is magically situated in olive groves, and the most intrusive noise is birdsong!! You can see the bay from where you sit on the verandah for breakfast, and the occasional clinkety clonk of a goat's bell. The apartment is comfortably and thoughtfully furnished, and Peter & Julie have managed the feat of being available for questions but give you all the privacy you want otherwise. Beautiful gardens and a real sun trap for sunbathing. About 15 minutes walk either way to Almyrida (good bakery, and the beach) or Plaka (grocery shops, and best restaurants around), although like most of Crete it's pretty hilly - but it does make the views spectacular. And when you've walked up the hill you can enjoy the baklava with a clear conscience! Totally recommend this place.

Enjoy the peaceful surroundings and breath taking views from the private gardens and terraces, 'away from it all' and yet only a stones throw from the blue flag beach with it's golden sand and turquoise sea.

“Perfect place for a wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Have recently had the pleasure of staying at Villa Mistika. The property is immaculate, the pool area and gardens are beautiful with lovely views to the sea. The village is pretty with some excellent tavernas and a safe sandy beach all within walking distance of the villa. Julie and Peter who own the property are a delightful couple very helpful. I will certainly be returning.

Perfect for families and friends. Peace and quiet under an olive tree in the large garden. Playing in the pool, boules competition and BBQ anyone? Chilling on the terrace or relaxing on a sunbed - there's something for everyone!
