This is a great villa to rent, all the facilities you require. The owner was prompt in replying to our questions and excellent advice was given. The villa is far from everywhere and a 4X4 is recommended as the Cretan roads are at times rough (ie lacking tarmac or an even surface!) especially if you want to visit some of...

Every holiday-is different. But in general you want a nice place to stay, good facilities and good weather. Well we certainly had all three in abundance. Yes , prevelli house is secluded and you absolutely need a car, an SUV ideally, but being able to sit outside every meal time looking at the sea, with nothing but the sound of...

This is the perfect place if you want to get away from the bustle of modern life and are looking for tranquil surroundings and high quality accomodation. The owners made us most welcome and take great pride in maintaining excellent standards in all respects. Although fairly remote, it was not too difficult to get around on generally well maintained, if...

About the neighbourhood
Our Villa is located in the quiet village of Agia Paraskevi which lies between Agia Galina and Preveli, set between dramatic mountain scenery and the coast with miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, all just a few minutes drive away. For those of a more active disposition, The beaches can be reached by walking down the lanes through the olive groves. The local beaches are usually very quite even in the height of summer, but at one end of the huge sandy beach of Triopetra are a cluster of small, very friendly, taverna's with sunbeds. In addition you can sample the local Cretan cuisine in various small very traditional tavernas located in the nearby mountain villages. Kerames is the nearest village and has a mini market on the main road through. This small mini marke... more

Most visitors will fly to Crete and we find that Ryan Air, Easy Jet and Jet 2 all offer good service and fair -ish prices. Thompson also offers flights. <BR>Out of the main months of the year then Agean Airlines fly from Manchester or Heathrow to Athens and after a couple of hours in their wonderful airport (bult for the Olympics) a short flight then takes you to Heraklion.<BR><BR>Car hire is essential We use Autoway which offer good quality cars with no hidden extras. <BR><BR>Shopping can be done in Spili which is on the way and has a decent supermarket just by the main car park or if you wish their is a very large new suppermarket in Chania ( just follow the signs to Chanai from the airport) its on the left as you go down hill into Chania.
