“Great spot”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Helios. A great position and very quiet. We had a car which made getting around very easy. We cooked for ourselves in the well equipped kitchen as well as enjoying nearby restaurants recomended by the owners.

We had great week on the island of Crete and when returning we would consider staying at Villa Helios or another villa within the same property.

Thank you to everyone who helped organise our trip. The service we received was excellent.

The other properties that are referred to are the 3 similar villas we have on our olive grove. We have 4 villas on our 4 1/2 acre olive grove 60-80m apart for privacy.

We have just 5 villas on our 4 1/2 acre olive grove of which 4 are rented as holiday homes. They all have private pools, are spaced 60-80m apart and surrounded by olive trees so as the guest says they are private and peaceful.

“Peaceful Villa”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This villa is in peaceful countryside but within a 20 -30 minute walk of the lovely small resort of Almyrida.
The pool and outside areas are well maintained and comfortable.
There is air-conditioning throughout the villa but it the units are set on a timer and the maximum time is 2 hours.This meant that the bedrooms were warm overnight. There are ceiling fans.
Wifi is available. You can by a token from a kiosk in Almyrida. 2GB was 20 Euros.

We put ceiling fans in all rooms as many guests prefer not to use aircon. If the aircons are put on a for a short time before bedtime most guests find that the room remains comfortable whil sleeping with the fan running. We set timers on the aircon for environmental reasons so that aircon is not running when not necessary.
