We booked up this villa for a two week holiday for two families of four, one coming in from the US and one from the UK, so all done online and in liaison with Irini, the agent for the landlord. We had high hopes for the villa from the pictures and descriptions online, but you can never be sure and we were slightly nervous of what we would find on arrival in Crete. We shouldn’t have been – the villa is fantastic. Thanks Irini! Alison Smith
