We have just came back from a wonderful vacation in south Crete, much of it thanks to the lovely place we stayed at.
Villa Ostria is most welcoming - comfortable, very nice designed and decorated and very cozy. Wonderful Betty is continently taking care of all the rest to give her guests the best hospitality ever (a treasures welcoming basket, fresh eggs from the farm, her own made fantastic Mille Feuille... etc.).
The farm is located in a beautiful area, spectacular views and very close to more than one lovely beaches.
Altogether, most most recommended!
The house is located at the edge of a charming hilltop village scattered with fascinating archeological remains. The house is well furnished and very attractively decorated in a traditional style. We were 6 people and had plenty of space. Also lots of outdoor living space with lovely views over the Cretan hills. Some practical points worth noting: drive to stores, etc. In Kissamos is about 10-15 minutes down a typically winding and steep Cretan road. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. Only one of the bedrooms has air conditioning though given the breezy hilltop location that wasn't an issue for us, and we stayed in mid August. The taverna just outside the village is quite good. Definitely worth patronizing.
