The villa is a great place, couldn't be more gorgeous location. The hosts were over the top generous with their native Cretan produce and attentive. If you have the opportunity to stay there, grab it, it is a privilege.

This is a really lovely place to stay - very welcoming hosts who provided us with lots of delicious food to get started. The house is beautiful and set a bit back from a nice village with a couple of tavernas. Several nice outdoor terraces to eat or have a drink.
