Fantastic Holiday (3rd time)
This is the 3rd time of staying at the Villas and again no complaints! Lovely welcome package of the basics and a cheeky bottle of wine or two ! It’s been 5 years since our last stay but it won’t be our last ! Villas are amazing as are the views and also there’s a good guide for places to eat and also visit ! We will be back ! 😊�
Lovely to have you back again. And so happy you still enjoy it so much.
what a lovely place!
We had stayed at Pano Stalos villas in 2015 and loved it : suddenly felt a need for some sun and relaxation this summer and called Dave who had this one week left.
Our Easyjet flight was late and it was well after 11 pm by the time we had got our luggage and hire car. Worried about finding our way in the dead of night, we phoned the wonderful Allan - who immediately offered to meet us at the crossroads and lead us to the villa. We would never have found it without him: not a soul around to ask, and ink-dark night!
The villa was spotless, with a generous 'welcome basket' (most of which we devoured immediately, as we had not eaten) and we fell into bed relaxed and fed. Phew. The next morning, coming out of the bedroom into the lounge, we were dazzled by a 50 mile view of blazing sunshine, sea, mountains and villages: WOW. Our private pool was a delight, and again spotless. Plenty of tavernas within a few minutes' drive: we liked Leventis at Pano Stalos (look it up) and the fish restaurants down on the coast. The most outstanding aspect of a stay here is the Cretans themselves: they do not treat you like a tourist, but like a visitor - unlike some countries.
If you stay at Pano Stalos Villas you will be incredibly well looked after (Allan and Susanna, the caretakers, visit regularly and are just delightful people). The villas are quiet, clean, and the views are to die for. Dave, the owner, wants his guests to feel like guests rather than customers and we do!
Wonderful stay at Villa Hannah
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Hannah from the first moment. Alan and Suzanne made an effort to have the house ready so that we could enter a couple of hours before the established time. They provided some food and drinks for the adults and the kids and also maps and information about places to visit in Crete and recommended restaurants.
The house had a splendid view of the sea and Chania. The house was coincident to the description in the web and it was nicely decorated and well-equipped. Moreover, it was well-maintained and cleaned during the 10 days we spent there. Alan and Suzanne were the perfect hosts!
We enjoyed the places we visited in Crete, the kindness of the people, the tasty food, but we also enjoyed the time we spent in the house with the pool and the BBQ. We will definitely recommend Villa Hannah to our friends and we hope to be able to go back again!
Even better than the pictures
We've rented quite a few houses in spain and Greece, but this is by far the best one. Pictures promises a lot but the expectations are actually exceeded. Brilliant Villa from Dave and Sandra, all modern cons/well equipped, magnificent view, great pool, outstanding service from Alan/Suzanne (and team) that makes you feel really welcome!
The area is nice too with nice beaches and several nice restaurants (try Aurinko Nektar Beach for example) to choose from in the village below.
We're most likely returning to Villa Hannah (again)!
We would warmly recommend it!
Gustaf and Malin
Many thanks, and so glad you enjoyed the villa (again). We feel we are doing something right when guests keep returning.
Dave, San and all at Pano Stalos Villas,
Fantastic villa and an excellent holiday
We had a fantastic week at Villa Hannah! It's in a great location with amazing views across the hills and to the sea, close enough to Chania (about 20 mins drive) to enjoy the restaurants and activities there, but it feels secluded and private. Tavernas in the nearby village which serve delicious local food, and we also enjoyed barbecuing by the pool on a couple of nights. Everything needed is provided in in the villa and the owner/managers couldn't have been more helpful in giving us all the necessary information, emptying bins, changing sheets etc. All in all a very smooth experience and we had a great week - will hopefully be back in the future!
Many thanks and so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back would be pleased to have you anytime.
Wonderful villa up in the hills
The villa was just as pictured and there was a fantastic welcome from Susannah and Alan. Clean, quiet and very well-maintained. Worth the steep drive to get there!
The owner David was really responsive on email and everything was very easy to arrange. Highly recommended.
