Un petit paradis niché dans les montagnes !

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison, une magnifique et grande piscine ( 10 m sur 5m ), situation géographique éloignée de l'agitation du bord de mer et qui permet de découvrir la Crète ( véhicule indispensable). Location idéale pour une famille de 4 personnes .Villa totalement conforme au descriptif annoncé. Nous retiendrions la bonne organisation de notre séjour ( 17 jours ) par Valia et surtout la gentillesse et l'accueil exemplaire d'Anastasia ( même à 1h00 du matin après un retard d'avion de 11h00 ! ). Service d'entretien de la maison et de la piscine irréprochable.Pour un 1er voyage en Crète nous avons été comblé.

Anastasia, la villa et les hirondelles nous ont donné envie de revenir...
