“A wonderful Villa with superb views”

This was a superb villa with all modern amenities and wonderful views over Souda Bay. Not overlooked, with a wonderful swimming pool this was an ideal villa. A quiet location on the outskirts of a pretty village, situated on the side of a steep hill this was a Cretan holiday at its best. A car is essential, although it is only a short walk to the local taverna. Superb scenery and only a short drive to the beach at Almerida I would highly recommend this villa to couples and families with young children.

“Still sigh thinking about the view”

Okay, even the company rep' who provided this villa was quick to point out that it wasn't in the 'luxury' category (I'd naively asked if there were beach towels at the property). It is on the small side. In fact, I still have a bruise on my shin - such are the tiny proportions in the main bedroom, you can't help but have a run-in with the bedstead. The shower was powerful but no screen around it was a big turn-off - I don't like 'wet-rooms' every time we had a shower...the whole room was drenched including the toilet roll.
BUT BUT BUT - while the villa might not be good enough for those who like rolling around on luxury beach towels - they'd have to be seriously churlish to criticise the outside of the villa. Designed by a swimming pool expert, I don't think I'll ever forget sitting in the pool over-looking Souda Bay, watching the ferries chug in and out and aircraft land in nearby Chania airport - and every time one came in we said 'lucky devils'.
For some the corkscrew of a road snaking from Almyrida resort up to the village of Kokino Horio might prove too much for the nerves/gear box - but it was so worth it because without the climb, you'd wouldn't have that heart-stopping view.
Like the previous reviewer, we made ourselves very much at home in the local taverna and was genuinely quite moved to be grappled affectionately by the owner on our last night...next year he promises to take my son to see the bright lights of Almyrida - 'daughter for you, mum for me' he joked - making my 14 year old blush and thrilled in equal measure. Loved touring around - went to Chania - worth the rather stressful journey in - and Malame (please go to The Wave for 'luxury' sunbeds and food). Overall, this holiday and its peaceful location, couldn't have come at a better time.
