We stayed in Villa Rea, one of two villas that make up Bluefairy villas. The villa was spotless, really well equipped both inside and outside and tastefully decorated. The owner was at the villa to greet us and explain everything as well as supplying extras like homemade cake, a huge bowl of fruit and the local raki. Mid week cleaning was also done with a change of sheets and towels.
The villa is close to a family run taverna that served well cooked Cretan food at low prices.
The views are beautiful and the setting quiet, so if you want a relaxing, low key holiday this villa and Kavalos would be fine.
Georgioupolis is about a 10 minute drive away where there are lots of other restaurants, supermarkets and offices where you can book trips to many places on Crete, including the Samaria Gorge.
However we found the local tavernas in Kavallos more than adequate for our needs.
We cannot recommend Bluefairy villas and our host enough . A truly excellent experience.
