It was good value for money and the owner and his son were very helpful.
The accomodation is basic but more than adequate.
However ,although it is only a short distance down to the local beach (which is beautiful) its quite a hike back up and a rental car was required after only 1 attempt .
In addition ,there was a problem with shuttle bus and taxis generally not wishing to take you directly to accomodation due to the condition of the road or small turning space.

Perfect holidays in November

> We stayed at viila Bellevue ,because the price was reasonable and the
> reviews in trip advisor were ok ,not perfect, but for the place we were

> Crete and suitable for us to explore the island- west-east-north and south
> and that helped us, not to have to drive around so many hours.
> Bellevue is a simple small hotel, almost all the rooms have a sea view, they

> The complex is built in an area with a lot of olive trees, each building has

> The family that owns Bellevue are very friendly and helpful.
> The time we visit the island of Crete the family was collecting the olives

> After they collected the olives they took them to the olive refinery in the
