you will not be disappointed if you stay at one of these villas. Jan and his family were great hosts even helping me to print out my Ryanair boarding pass the day before departure. The villas are very well appointed and provide everything you need for a very relaxing stay. The pool made it even better.
The setting is superb with tremendous views all around and sheep & goats in neighbouring fields rattling the bells around their necks. The nearest beaches are around 30 minutes drive and there are lovely drives into the hills nearby.
There are mini supermarkets in close by villages as well as great drinking places.Particularly recommend the small taverna on the road out of Axos where you can experience great panoramic views with birds of prey traveling on thermal currents.
The residents of Crete are extremely friendly. There were many occasions where free drinks, ice creams and desserts were provided by restaurants, tavernas and mini market...
