The property is near the centre of Vori, a quite village providing a taste of Crete away from the tourist centres. It is exceptionally well placed for the major historic sites of Minoan Faistos and Roman Gortyn and close to a number of good, sandy beaches with excellent swimming. Though a small working village there is a good choice of tavernas in easy walking distance (including the exceptional Taverna Alekos serving traditional Cretan food to a very high standard). The views from the terrace of the villa are lovely and the house and grounds spacious and comfortable. The host went of his way to make sure our stay was enjoyable for example taking us to a local Greek concert in the school playground (put on for the village rather than tourists), recommending trips and locations and even cooking a traditional meal for us one night. Good local shopping in the nearby (market) town of Mires and away from coast there are lovely drives and walks in mountains. Wi-fi works well.
