We truly had a wonderful vacation! You have an exquisite view from both villa and great swimming pool. The Cretan warmth is something we had the chance to experience not only from the perfect climate, but also from the owner, who really tries to make his guests feel special!
Knossos, the archeological museum, the Cretaquarium and some nearby beaches were all worthwhile.
Thx again Alexandros - we will surely return!
