Great for children with fenced off pool, highchair, cot etc. Gorgeous sunny roof terrace and...

About the neighbourhood
The villa is up a quiet lane at the end of the traditional Cretan village of Stilos. Stilos means 'springs' and there is a river running through the village. Local spring water is bottled and sold all round the area. The village shop and tavernas are just a two minute walk away on level ground round the corner. Villa Maria is surrounded by olive and orange groves, with sheep over the road and and the sound of tinkling goats bells in the distance. A ten minute drive brings you to Kalyves, a small seaside town, where there are a lot of lovely restaurants and beachside tavernas, with many specialist shops and a good supermarket.
