“Perfect Villa”

We stayed in Villa Katerina for a week in early October. On arrival the owner met us and was extremely helpful in giving us pointers of places to explore during our stay as well as leaving some home made Cretan food. The villa as very clean and had amazing views across the valley and out to sea. The swimming pool was gorgeous and not overlooked at all.

I would certainly recommend this villa to anyone looking to visit Crete, it was a perfect stay although, as described on the villas website, a hire car is definitely required.

The villa is furnished to a high standard and was very clean. We arrived at midnight and next morning awoke to the sound of sheep and goat bells, which was lovely. The villa sits on the side of a gorge with views to the mountains and sea as far as the eyes could see. Stephanos the owner was really helpful when we had problems with a hire car and his wife treated us on two occasions to her freshly made cakes and cheese pies which were delicious! The villa grounds are totally secluded and the swimming pool very inviting for a dip. We did many trips to tiny little mountainside villages as well as the more well known places and it was always lovely to come home to our villa on the hill.

This is our second trip and we enjoyed our time once again. The view is just amazing and the standard of the villa is 1st class. Stefanos arranged a very late check in, early morning and a late check out so we could maximise our time in Crete. We had 3 very tasty in expensive meals in the village of Kefalas which is 15 minutes up the hill from the Villa, in a small tavern above the supermarket, which Stefano recommended. The cake shop in Virases was just as good as last year. You can see them making all the cakes themselves. I can highly recommend their Baclava! We will certainly return again in the future.
