Lots of Space. Magnificent views  

We spent a two weeks holiday on Crete this August. The villa was our base to explore Chania region by car. When we arrived our flight came in more than two hours late so that we reached Maleme only after sunset. Giannis directed us to his Restaurant Mythos at the beach and gave us a very warm welcome. After having dinner close to the waves we were escorted to the house. It was quite overwhelming. So much space in every single room. The pictures did not lie. Next morning we discovered that there was even more space. Outdoor kitchen, shady places, many sunbeds and a very clean pool. The kids and ourselves loved it from the first moment. From the breakfast table our view went over the hills down to the sea. On the right you see the central mountains. And if you get up early watching sunrise is a must! Giannis, we will come back to Crete. And if we decide for the west, your villa will be our first choice. Martin

Fantastic views, very peaceful surroundings  

We have enjoyed a lovely stay in Villa Royal. The accommodation is very spacious, the location private and peaceful, yet only a short drive from Maleme. The views from the villa of the sea and mountains are great. Swimming pool cool in temperature (in May) but we enjoyed it every day without paying the additional heating charge. A lovely part of Greece and ideal for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday. Thank you Giannis

Fantastic holidays!!!  

Big thank you, Giannis and his wife were great host. Everything was as promised, we felt so welcomed and everybody approached us with such a big smile. The villa was just as in the pictures or better. It was clean, beautiful and really quiet neighbourhood. The views are just breathtaking and everything is quite near by car. We would definitely recommend the villa and are already planning for next summer

Response from Giannis

Thank you very much Vikish! Me and my wife are really pleased when our guests spend nice holidays in our villa. You were also great! We will be waiting all of you coming back soon!

Fantastic Villa  

The villa and location were excellent. We were met with a warm welcome by Giannis on arrival with a well stocked fridge. The location of the villa was spectacular, situated as it is in an olive grove with panoramic views across mountains and sea. The outdoor space was wonderful and particularly enjoyed by our three children. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Response from Giannis

Thank you too, Jim! You were really perfect! I am really looking forward to meeting you and your wonderful family again next year! I wish you a happy Summer!

Meet your host, Giannis
