We spend a wonderful month vacation at this villa in July, 2011 – and it was very nice! Villa stands just 50 meters from the sea, in a calm, quiet and safe location, and you actually have a private beach! You can walk to swim any time you like, and it’s really amazing to fall asleep hearing the sea by your door. The villa is bigger than it looks on pictures, spacious, airy and well equipped. There were four of us, including our little daughter and her grandmom, and we always had enough room for everyone. Bedrooms are located downstairs, what makes them cooler than the rest of the villa, and if it’s not enough, there is an AC in every bedroom. Sitia is 5 minutes to drive, with all it’s restaurants and small shops, 2 supermarkets and the marketplace on Tuesdays – with a great variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and fresh fish for evening BBQ. The famous palm Vai beach is just 30 min to drive, and you can enjoy it any time you like. Moreover, 25 min to drive there is Kouremenos beach, where you will windsurf even if you’ve never tried it before! (It has a wind surfing school, rent a board and the best wind around)) And you can also snorkel and windsurf right beside the villa.
The owners, Andrey and Anna, are very nice and helpful people. Their villa stands close enough to get any assistance you need immediately, and far enough not to bother your privacy.
It’s been one of our best vacations on Crete, and we highly recommend this place for a relaxing family vacation!
