“Peace and tranquility.”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our third stay at this lovely villa near Lake Kournas. It's clean, comfortable and perfect if you like to be a bit remote. The pool is perfect and there are many wonderful family run Tavernas within walking distance of the villa. Also pedalows are cheap to hire at the lake and a fun way to spend time. There are turtles to spot...

“Ideal Villa; Ideal Location”
Reviewed 25 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This villa was the perfect location for our extended family group which included two children under the age of six. The living area was roomy; the kitchen well-equipped; two bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. The exterior space has been well-planned: you can lie on sun loungers by the pool or sit on the balcony or if too hot, you can relax under the arches which give natural shade and a beautifully-framed view of the pool. The main town is only a five minute drive yet the villa is in a very tranquil location and the only noise you'll hear is the clanking of bells as the sheep make their daily commute to a near-by field. The owner, David Holton was quick to respond to any queries I had prior to the holiday and had a friendly and reassuring manner. We would definitely stay here again.

“wonderful isolation with everything you could wish for”
Reviewed 12 February 2012 for a stay in September 2011

person found this review helpful

This is a truly wonderful villa with it's complete get away from it all isolation, yet within walking distance of some lovely restaurants. The nearest restaurant is about a 10 min walk away. You can also walk into Gergioupolis itself in about 30 minuntes, but take torches (head torches are ideal) for your return journey. Be warned, you may never wish to leave the dining area/ barbecue on the balcony, as the dining experience here provides the best view around! The villa has everything that you need, and more, and is kept in immaculate condition. We thoroughly recommend taking a walk around Lake Kournas which is easilly reached by foot from the villa. We went to climb the mountains of Crete, and they truly are stunning, with some easy navigable paths, however, we would recommend a 4 x 4 to reach some of the more isolated tracks. This villa is ideally situated for access to the mountains, but would also suit anyone who is simply looking to relax, with only the local wildlife and occasional goat for company. We will defininetly be back.
