We’ve just returned from our second holiday at Pilot’s villas and we thought it couldn’t get better than the first but it did! The hosts Katerina and Yiorgos are fantastic and between them make every guest’s stay a unique one and ensure everyone goes home wanting to come back. They both go out of their way to make you feel welcome and part of the family!

Katerina’s breakfast was amazing and all made to order. It included breads, cheeses, meats, jams, coffee, tea, eggs, yogurt, fruit, cake and the best fresh orange juice. We never left feeling hungry!

The location of Pilot’s villas is perfect, being surrounded by many fantastic restaurants. The villas are set back from the main road though, so there is no noise! A short walk away is the harbour with plenty more restaurants and bars.

The pool and garden area is perfectly sized with clean, well maintained sunbeds and the swimming pool itself. The whole area is quiet and tranquil and makes for a very relaxing holiday (everyone should try Katerina’s ice-cream iced coffee!).

The rooms are simple, clean, well maintained and contain everything you need, each with their own set of chairs and table outside and drying rack.

We had an incredible holiday yet again at Pilot’s villas and we will certainly be back in the not too distant future!

I selected this accommodation because of the excellent reviews due traveling with my daughter and we wanted to feel safe and taken care of.
From being greeted on arrival to waved off on departure we felt like we were staying with friends. It’s easy to forget you are in a hotel with Katerina’s lovely breakfasts and home cooked lunches and complimentary cake handed to you at every opportunity.
Yiorgos runs a tight, efficient and friendly ship; with the welfare and happiness of his guests very much being his priority-he’s also chief Barman, bottle-washer, receptionist and bellboy lol.
It is so evident that this family work extremely hard round the clock and make Pilots villas a real comfortable home from home. I will definitely recommend to everyone I know and will be back soon.

Good to know
Situated right on the Main Street of the beautiful rustic village within a short walk to all bars & restaurants (every meal was excellent), but absolutely no noise can be heard from the street once in the accommodation. Walking is easy, flat and well maintained pavements.
WiFi is complimentary are very strong, we were streaming UK radio (Yiorgos is now a Smooth radio fan lol)
Hairdryer & TV in the room plus lots of kitchen appliances for those going self catering.
Villas are on a hill with steps to many but not all, request close to pool if you have difficulty with steps.
Crisp clean white monogrammed linen on beds, towels are changed daily. Showers are a good pressure.
Most spirits stocked in bar and local beer plus rosé wine and prosecco.
If you do stay-PLEASE remember to leave a review on here, these reviews help small businesses much more than we realise.

We stayed for a week at Pilot Villas, a family run business. George and his family run these very clean and comfy apartments, the self catering apartments are spacious, clean, have air conditioning, TV, WiFi. The outdoor area have a big swimming pool, sun beds and a bar. The family are brilliant, very friendly and will do anything to help you. There is a big car park at the back and the resort next to the Villas is excellent with loads of restaurants and shops. We will definitely go again. Claudia and David, UK

Another fantastic stay at Pilot Villas. Yiorgos and his family met us with a warm welcome as always!! Yet again they had been busy over the winter ensuring everything was perfect for the start of the summer season.. the extension to the Pool deck is fantastic and and as usual the Pool was in fantastic condition and very welcome on the hot sunny days. Without doubt we will be back next year!! We would highly recommend Pilot Villas to anyone wanting a fantastic place to stay on the island of Crete..

We stayed here for 5 days and had a really good experience. It is a small, cozy and family operated facility. They really make you feel welcome!

Breakfast was good as well, cannot find a thing to complain about. The suite was good, clean and nicely decorated.

The village of Koutouloufari has many small restaurants and oozes lots of atmosphere. If I would go back again to Crete, I would definitely go here again!
