Crete, Greek Islands

Ruins, rocky outcrops and rural charm

Off the southern coast of mainland Greece, beautiful Crete is the largest of the islands, packed with rural charm, archeological sites and fabulous mountains - a land where shepherds still tend their flocks wearing traditional dress. Blow the kids’ minds at the enormous Samariá Gorge, tantalize them with tales of ancient civilization, and check out the cave where Zeus was said to have been born.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Dimi Residence in Crete with my husband, ours girls whom are 2 and 4 years, plus my sister and her partner. Our stay was wonderful and Evaggeila was a lovely host who gave us plenty of information but also space to get on with our holiday. The house was equipped with everything you could need for a week away from home ( toiletries in bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and pool toys for the children). The pool, whilst not fenced, is quite kid friendly as there is a paddling section for the little ones. The daily cleaning service was also really helpful, especially when travelling with other people. We also loved the location of the villa. Whilst car rental is a necessity, having a car facilitates exploring the beautiful quiet beaches, coves and beach side tavernas located nearby, plus the town of Chania which has a lovely old town and nice vibe. We would definitely recommend this villa, and Crete as a wonderful and relaxed holiday destination.
