Great villa with an incredible view!
Overall excellent stay. Constantinos was in close communication with us through multiple changes in the ferry schedule and met us at the port when finally arrived. He and his father graciously accommodated our late arrival and even assisted us when our car rentals were messed up by late ferry arrival. They even had a meal waiting for us at the villa, knowing we would be too weary from traveling to go out or cook.
The villa itself is spectacular, perched on a mountainside overlooking Heraklion. The size and layout were great, and it was very well equipped. Sitting on the terrace in the evening cool and watching the City lights come on was great.
The only caution we would have for future guests is that the place is not air conditioned. There are ceiling fans, and many windows with screens, but in the heat of a Cretan summer, it can still be quite warm at night.
Thank you so much for the kind words dear Deanna! You are excellent people! We hope to see you again some time! As you experienced, cretan summer is sometimes warm but the location and the construction of the villa makes the villa very cool all day along with the ceiling fans.
Villa agréable avec une vue fantastique
Konstantinos et son papa Alex sont vraiment charmants, à l'écoute et soucieux de rendre service. Nous avons été accueillis à l'aéroport, ce qui facilite les échanges quand on ne parle pas le grec.
Leur villa est facile à vivre, bien équipée et la terrasse spacieuse bien exposée offre une vue imprenable sur la mer de Crète et sur Héraklion.
Nous recommandons cette propriété tant pour la farniente que pour des excursions à l'ouest (Knossos, plage de Malia, Agio Nikolaos,...) qu'au sud (Phaïstos, plage de Matala,...)
Un grand merci!
Thank you so much for the kind words dear Maryline! You were excellent guests! We hope to see you again some time!
