The pictures really don't do it justice - this villa is absolutely beautiful. Clean, spacious and so beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. The pool is large, sunbeds really comfortable and the views of the mountains are lovely. Set in a small village you really do get the feeling of being in rural authentic Crete yet a short drive from the lovely beaches of Amyrida and Kalives and with in easy reach of Chania. The villa was cleaned during our week's stay which we appreciated and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. To watch the sunset in the jacuzzi was a real treat. We very much hope to return.
The villa looked great on the website, in fact when I booked I thought it looked too good to be true! On arrival though we were not disappointed. It is beautifully furnished and is better than it looks in the photos. The arrival and departure were efficient and there are lots of little details that really make a difference; washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs, coffee pods, lovely bathroom products, plenty of toilet paper etc so that you didn't feel you were wasting money on that sort of thing. The pool is lovely and the towels provided are fluffy. The village is friendly with a good mini market where we got fresh bread every morning, great local yogurt and ice cream. I can recommend Kalyves beach, in particular the far end from the villa where GK taverna does good food and wine with good service at a reasonable cost. I would have no hesitation in going back to Villa Rouga and have no hesitation in recommending it to you. Lovely little balconies to have a quiet moment but also great sharing space to spend time with friends. Go for it!Response from Artemis: My dear Hilary! Thank you so much for your kind words! You were also perfect! I wish we are able to serve you and welcome you again in Crete again in the future! My Best Regards Artemis
