“Fantastic Villa, Amazing Views and Lots of Olives!”

I stayed at this Villa with 2 female friends this October and had a fantastic time! We were greeted by the landord Stamatis on route to the property where he showed us around and explained the use of all the facilities - he'd also given us some lovely olive oils and Raki and a new coffee machine which was very nice.

The setting is stunning with olive groves surrounding the property. We weren't sure what to expect weather wise, but the days were a balmy 25 odd degrees and the evenings did require a cardigan, but still very pleasant! We turned the air con units to the heat setting whcih worked perfectly for some extra evening heat if needed.

As three female travellers wanting a week of relaxation, the villa was secluded enough to have that 'get away from it all' feel, but I'd definitely recommend car hire as the local supermarket is a 5-7 minute drive away.

Opposite the villa is the famed Terra Creta offices, which though not busy, do have a good view of us by the pool. Saying that, we were not overlook from any other side, so we didnt mind at all.

The layout of the property is across 3 floors with the lower ground floor used mainly for daytime lounging round the pool and refreshments as there is a mini kitchen and bathroom there (very useful for a drinks top up!). It took a day or so to get use to the spiral stairs from the ground to the upper floors (but you can use the outside stairs to get from ground to first floor). i think our legs were exercised pretty well that first day, but as we were only three people, we probably did much more running up and down than was needed We certainly learned by the 2nd day where we chilled during the day and stayed in the upper floors during the evening! Stairs were a bit wobbly but sound, so again we mentioned this to the landlord who will make sure its addressed

The sauna was fantastic and worked really well...only downside is the Jacuzzi was not heated! We talked to the landlord about it and he plans to rectify for next season so do not feel put off..! The pool is unheated and was fine when it got really warm...it wouldn't be a problem in the height of summer at all. ;)

WiFi was okay, bit sketchy at times and on a pre-paid card, so if you stream videos (like we did) you may find it finishes soon but the landlord did top us up when needed.

I would recommend a drive to the Elafonisi beach (stunning!) as well as Balan and Falassarna beaches, which are all sandy with crystal clear waters! A must see! Plus the drive was beautiful, both across the mainland and in the mountains.

We didnt venture much into the local town which was a little quite due to the time of year, but do get into Chania town and harbour where you can find the odd backroad greek preserved historical sites and the famous lighthouse...not to mention numbers cafes, bars and clubs.

Overall we had a wonderful time in this villa...waking up to sea views one side and olive grove/hillside views the other was amazing!! Stamatis was very helpful (I called him daily with questions! haha) and happy to help.

Will certainly be back. :)
