This a very nice detached property close to Milatos and Sissi. It is ideally located for a couple looking for a relaxing break in a secluded area. There are a number of tavernas and restaurants within a short driving distance. A car is essential. The villa is detached, clean, tidy and very well equipped. There is excellent Wi-Fi access for those that want it. The owners gave us a nice welcome with comprehensive information on the area. We would definitely stay again if returning to Crete.
We stayed here in September 2017. The villa was spectacular and very clean. The owners met us on arrival (English) and showed us around and told us everything we needed to know. Maps of the local area were provided and the villa was situated next door to their own villa if we had any problems. Very friendly welcome.
The villa itself is well designed, the views of the sea were spectacular and to be able to open your curtains in a morning and see that view from bed was amazing. There are fly screens for all the windows which at night were needed to keep the moths out but they worked very well indeed.
The villa and pool are situated next to the road down into Milatos but you soon get used to the quad bikes and coaches going past.
The villa is a perfect size and located for a week away from it all. There are enough restaurants by the sea front in Milatos for a different one each night, we didn't venture into Sissi except for to get groceries.
A lovely villa and we had a perfect week away.
Probably the best villa and location we have had in twenty years of this type of holiday. The quality, finish, and equipment in this villa was second to none. The location was everything we were looking for, a stunning view down the hill to the sea, a quiet area, and a superb selection of taverna's within a few miles. It was only a little further to larger towns if you wanted a few more amenities and shops. A car is essential. Steve and Barbara were extremely helpful at all stages, during booking, instructions before we arrived, and help during our stay.
I could not recommend this place more!
Villa is very well equipped and luxuriously comfortable. Steve & Barb are on hand if you need them but also leave you to enjoy the tranquilly. They are in fact the perfect hosts. In Milatos itself are shops and restaurants, our favourite being Meltemi which was perfect and very friendly. A perfect stay, thank you!
The villa is in a stunning location with a view down to the bay at Milatos, a wonderfully unspoiled traditional village. It was comfortable and well-equipped with everything we needed to have a relaxing holiday in the sun. The pool was fab. The owners were friendly and unobtrusive. They were brilliantly flexible, allowing us to stay after the check-out time as our flight wasn't until the evening. If you stay here, a car is a must. As is a visit to Milatos and Taverna Kohili where you can enjoy a stunning meal on the sea front. We'd also recommend a sunset trip to Milatos cave, just 5-10 mins away and a trip to Spinalonga. Milatos Heights is a brilliant base from which to explore Eastern Crete. The only downside is the passing traffic which does encroach a little on privacy, but really this is a minor issue.
Had the best holiday ever in this beautiful villa.
The owners are so friendly and nice, the welcome package was spot on.
Very peaceful with beautiful views. It was perfect for us, we'd go back tomorrow if it was possible
Thanks Steve & Barbs
The owners Steve and Barb were very friendly and helpful and seem to have thought of everything - including a very well stocked welcome basket. They were there to meet us on arrival and said they'd keep a low profile after they left, but they were keen to ensure that they were there if we needed them.
True to their word, we had an issue with the aircon not cooling properly on our first night and Steve got it sorted within a few hours.
The villa has a stunning view over Milatos and is light, modern and very spacious for two people, and very, very easy to just stay there all day, every day.
The large patio was in the sun all day (although there was also some shade)during our stay (late Aug/early Sept) and the sunloungers and chairs were very comfortable.
The villa is located more or less equidistant between Sisi and Milatos and unless you enjoy some serious walking in high temperatures and humidity, a car is a must have!
There are some really lovely tavernas a short drive away in both places which Steve and Barb will be able to direct you to.
A great place to stay - would highly recommend!
