we flew in to heraklion airport, got our luggage,picked up our pre-arranged hire car and we were off on our new adventure. Though we have been to crete on several occasions we had never been to this area before so it was all new for us.The main highway was easily accessed and in great condition for a greek road.In hindsight if we had been a little more on the ball we would have flown in to Chania as we had a 2 hr drive in front of us,anyhow the kilometres just floated away and we decided to do our shop on the way so we turned off close to rethymnon and went to lidless for our supplies.The instructions that we received were superb and the next thing we new we were there,first impression was amazing,very private pool area and absolutely spotless interior,great views from the upstairs balconies though the downstairs was a little bit obscured by the villa in front but on the whole we were very happy to call this our home for the next couple of weeks.
After 2 or 3 days of rest and relaxation and the odd dip in the pool to cool off in the 30± deg heat we ventured off to chania for a bit of retail therapy as it was my wifes birthday not far by car and easy to get to, really very busy place and to be honest not our cup of tea we didn,t follow the instruction on where to park and found our own car park easy to get in but crazy to get out of.Still a new experience.Later in the holiday we went to platanias this was a much better place to shop and wander around would recommend this to anyone looking for a day out.In the evenings we usually cooked our selves as my wife is a vegetarian then we would drive into almeryda village for a couple of drinks,our place of choice was Captain Jacks bar where you could sit outside and people wach the evening away,the staff sofia and mark were very friendly and polite a great place all-round and highly recommended.
We were absolutely blown away by the relaxed atmosphere of this place and as i said earlier it has changed the way we look at our holidays.I would highly recommend the villa way of spending holidays and will undoubtedly be doing this type thing again.
To finish i would like to thank jenny and jeff for letting us have the use of villa milo which allowed us to have this great experience and wonderful memory

“Fantastic place !”

The house is just wonderful, very clean and comfortable ! It has enough room and utensils for everyone and bedrooms are spacious and all have their own terrace. The main terrace is perfect to have dinner and watch the sunset, with views on the sea and the moutains.

The small swimming pool is also great to refresh in the morning or anytime, with sunbeds and umbrellas (maybe one more would be perfect).

We had no problem with the access or the key, the directions given before getting there were perfect. It is very well situated to visit the region, as you can go west to Chania, east to Rethymnon, or south to the gorges and more quiet beaches.

If you go there, don't forget to visit Gavalochori typical village but if you go south to Fragkokastello, please never enter the Taverna Drosoulites, a real fraud for tourists: you can verify it on TripAdvisor...

Villa Milo is beautifully situated in a quiet area with fantasic views of the Sea and Mountains. Within a short drive is Almirida with a lovely beach/tavernas/watersports/shops etc. The Villa was perfect for us with 2 teenage children as they each had a room. The pool is lovely and very private and there is a lot of pretty outside space for dining/BBQ/sunbathing and relaxing. The villa is very well equipped, we cooked lovely meals and enjoyed the TV/wifi/books & games, with air con in every room. We hired a car, there are two car spaces, and saw a lot of the Island. driving was easy. There are English speaking people who maintain and clean the villa and who were very helpful.Absolutely loved it!!
