This was the perfect holiday. The villa was lovely and the staff could not have been more helpful in every aspect of making our stay enjoyable. We were met at the airport, shown to the villa and given extremely useful advice in the local taverna - drinks were bought for us. On our third day we had a flat tyre (our fault) and one of the team arrived and replaced the wheel with great charm and efficiency within an hour. The local tavern served us superb meals each night - food, water wine and raki included for fewer than 20 euros per night. Quite excellent.

stayed at the Christina on our last day and night of our holidays. I had not booked long enough to stay ..but the staff at the Villas made sure we all had somewhere to sleep and eat and also gave us extended time at the Villa so we could have a great last day in Crete.....Everyone was so helpful ...the only thing that spoilt it was the only male adult on the trip snapped his Achilles .....ironic really as we stayed in CRETE....lol

“Spacious Villa with pool, mountian village easy for touring”

well equipt spacious villa with a private pool and parking in very small village. Excellent Service from all Zarcos tours staff - really helpful people who go out of their way to make you welcome. The village is tiny so don't stay here if you want lots of night life. We had really relaxing stay with easy access to main roads for touring and sightseeing.

“Authentic Yes - but very secluded”
Reviewed 22 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Other reviewers are correct to stress how helpful and kind the owners of these villas are. They met us at the airport with the hire car and gave us a very full and useful breifing. However we then didn't see anybody again until our penultimate day.
If you want to stay in an authentic Greek village then this is it. But one cannot over emphasize how tiring the drive becomes going up and down the long 'mountain' trail to civilization each day. The village has only two small cafe type tavernas which we didn't find satisfying in terms of food quality.
In the villa itself the kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensials, but the furniture badly needs upgrading and the beds were very uncomfortable. The pool is cold and as the villa's location is high above sea level it would be so most of the year.
As previously reported the dogs are a menace
