We (family holiday – with my husband and 15 yr old son) stayed at Villa Stella for one week, as part of a 2 week holiday in Crete. We all agree it is the best villa we have ever stayed in (we have rented a few in our time) for the amenities and home comforts, easy access to shops and places of interest, including the coast.
The villa is on a hill and very private (gated and surrounded by beautiful plants and olive groves), even though close to the town which is handy when you need a few groceries etc…It is quiet and peaceful which made us want to spend most of the time there by the pool! The gardens are stunning and whilst relaxing soaking up the sun you can watch and listen to the wildlife around you. There are beautiful views of the surrounding olive groves from the immaculate and stunning garden and you can even see the sea and amazing landscapes from the roof!
Elisabeth and her Uncle/family made us very welcome and the extras of fruit, wine, milk, juice, tea, olive oil and Ouzo (unexpected) were a lovely extra touch to help us settle in. Elisabeth was always on hand when needed to ask about places to visit and dine out at – equally we had privacy to enjoy our holiday and relax. Nothing was too much trouble.
We would have no hesitation in staying there again if we were to return to Crete again. Thank you Elisabeth, for ensuring our stay was so lovely.
