The villa is well equipped and the quiet setting just outside of the town boasts superb views and a beautifully sited pool with barbecue, loungers and the usual poolside equipment. The small hamlet is home to both Greek families and 3 other holiday lets. The host, Arianne, is extremely friendly and is happy to share advice and information about the local area. A car is recommended in order to fully appreciate the wealth of interesting places to visit, although we did not have one and were happy to use the regular bus service from the town.
I would be more than happy to recommend Kastania Villa to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in Western Crete.
