We spent 10 very enjoyable days at Villa Aikaterini. Booking & arrangements for airport transfers, food shopping & information about the local area were made simple, thanks to Ariadne of Authentic Crete, Georgios (local taxi) & Sandra, who visited us to make sure we had all the info we needed.
On arrival, despite the late hour, we were greeted by the owners, who were welcoming & attentive. They left us a spread of food to enjoy & spoiled us with home baked treats throughout our stay. Thank you, Angeliki.
The villa was secure, spacious, clean & very well appointed. The grounds were immaculate & there was plenty outside furniture with various outside seating options. Every window had insect screen doors, beds were comfortable & special mention has to be made of the soft cotton bed linen, changed twice a week.
The only disappointment was the pool. It was one of the main reasons we had booked this villa but we found it so uncomfortably cold that we were unable to make use of it. The pool is an integral part of the villa hire, so we feel it should be usable whenever the villa is available for rent. Perhaps solar panels could be used to heat the pool, as they are to heat the water.
Despite this, we would have no hesitation recommending or returning to this lovely villa.More
