“Utopia on a Hillside”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 for a stay in May 2013
people found this review helpful

After a tiring journey it was a joy to be met by Kostas and Kristoula who then graciously introduced us to Villa Tholos. It soon became apparent that this was not merely avilla for rent; it had the atmosphere of a real home into which we quickly and comfortably settled. This cleverly designed and impeccably constructed house has every facility that leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. The well appointed luxury fittings and appliances plus an extensive range and variety of household equipment could not possibly do anything but satisfy the requirements of the most demanding guests. The well attended and landscaped gardens have sheltered areas where one can relax in the sun and out of the wind. The villa faces West and overlooks a small cove with a rather beach of sand and pebbles. However the water is shallow for some way from the shore and the bathing is safe. The walk down to the beach takes no more than ten minutes. This cove opens out into the Bay of Mirabelle and from the villa the view across the sea to Elounda and to the horizon to the north west.
One could spend several days quietly enjoying the ambience of the villa and surroundings but a car is essential if one wishes to make the most of this interesting area of Crete.
