Very comfortable villa in olive grove with fine pool

  • 4 of 5

Generally speaking we really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Zafiri. The pool was delightful and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked . The Roman bath and shower in the bathroom were great too. The A/C in the bedrooms worked fine, though we would have preferred to have A/C in the living room/dining area where it was really needed. We enjoyed having breakfast on the shaded patio with views of the olive groves and village; sometimes the chirping of the cicadas was annoying but they are commom on Crete in the summer. The beds were not ideal for one of us (he is over 6 feet tall with a bad back and he found the beds too short and the mattresses uncomfortable) but otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

THE BEST HOLIDAY SO FAR!

  • 5 of 5

We live in Australia and this year we decided to take a trip around France, Portugal and Crete. We stayed at the villa and enjoyed very much our holiday. Everything was perfect! We love the area, the views, the sea. The villa is excellent - it suited perfectly our needs. We had a memorable time and will remember Crete with very warm feelings. Thank you.

We recommend the villa

We visited Crete towards the end of the summer for a quiet quality time away from it all. The villa we stayed in was charming, peaceful with beautiful views and breathtaking surroundings. We had a lovely holiday and will come back.
