We stayed for 5 nights at Vrachos Villas in October. We stayed in the 2-storey villa at the topmost point of the resort. This had a lovely upstairs balcony which gave fabulous sea and mountain views. It was lovely to watch the sunset while having an evening meal on the balcony. There is also a table/chairs outside the front door...

Beautiful traditional detached houses, up on a hill, in a luxurious garden. The parking is down, near the entrance, only some of the villas have a small parking near, for one car and the access road for the villas is very steep. Our villa consisted in one big room, kitchen corner, bathroom and bedroom. It had a small terrace in...

These villas each have spectacular views, especially at sunset and lovely Sun terraces. The villas are set back a hill above the beaches of Ligres and Triopetra (you need transport). This part of Crete is unique since it has a much more laid back vibe and is far from the high rise, tourist packed resorts. The owners of this establishment...

When you look for a place to relax, you have to visit Vrachos Villas in Agia Paraskevi. It's half an hour driving from Spili where you have supermarkets and everything you need. The appartments/studio's are good equipped and great place to stay. The owners are very friendly and they also serve very good food..... We defenitely will go back there.

We were here for two weeks and enjoyed the comfortable, clean and cosy appartment, but also the delicious cooking in Yani en Eleni's taverne. They are real hosts who make you feel welcome and special. We loved the view from our balcony: the beautiful blue see and the peaceful mountains. A morning dive into the swimming pool made our excellent...

Great location if you like solitude and if you want to get away from the city. However staff could be a bit more friendly. Great view from the appartments and just 5 minutes away from several nice beaches by car.
