Stunning views at a lovely villa
We have stayed here for four years in a row and absolutely love it. The villa is spacious and beautiful and the views are fabulous. We really enjoy the area...a bit away from the crowds but close to great food and beaches.
Villa totally lived up to the description and more. Very clean and well maintained and what a view! Was very impressed that beach towels were provided too! Really can't fault it! Have already recommended to friends.
Lovely villa with superb view
We spent 1 week here as 2 families. The villa is well equipped, clean and well maintained. Julia has provided an excellent information folder which we used a lot. Plaka a 20 minute walk has some nice restaurants in the square. Complimentary starters, fruit and Raki. The Italian on the right as you go into Plaka is excellent. Kalyves is lovely with good restaurants. Car hire recommended to get around. Excellent booking process and quick response to queries from Julia the owner. Missing the view already.
It is an amazing view. We never tire of it. Glad you had a fabulous holiday and the information pack helped you find your way around. Everyone loves Plaka. Its nice because its away from the tourists and you get good traditional cuisine. If you would like to return then we offer a 10% discount on return visits. Regards Julia
Gorgeous villa, lovely pool and spectacular view
The villa was even better than the photos suggested - bright, airy, modern and clean. It was well equipped with efficient air conditioning, which was great as it was over 30C every day. The village was picturesque with a good shop and friendly taverna. We hope to return some day as we had a great week.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. You will be welcome back anytime and would be happy to offer you a 10% discount as a previous guest. Regards
Fabulous house with amazing view over the sea
We, a family of five and two grandparents, really enjoyed the house and our stay in Crete. The house has all the facilities needed and particularly the view over the sea will stick in our mind. Crete was just as pleasant an experience as expected and we had a very good balance between relaxation at the pools and beach and visiting cities and the water park.
The lovely Villa Bougainvillea
Our party of three adults and three children enjoyed a wonderful week at this luxurious villa. Julia and John have created a 'home from home' feeling, nothing was overlooked, down to the last detail, even beach towels are provided. The villa was immaculately clean when we arrived, Julia's information was detailed and helpful.
Apart from the prime location overlooking Souda Bay from the terraces and swimming pool area, the fittings and furnishings are tasteful and of superior quality.
The pool area is well equipped with six sun loungers and two parasols, a very nice BBQ, table and chairs with cushions. The small paddling pool is ideal for smaller children and plenty of beach and water toys can be found in a box on the patio.
All in all we felt the owners share very generously all their facilities and we can not recommend the villa highly enough.
Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, 260km long by 15-60km wide. Crete has 325 days of sunshine each year with a perfect mediterranean climate. Western Crete is the greenest and most fertile regions of the island.
Villa Bougainvillea is in a quiet location with stunning views to Souda Bay and the White Mountains, close to Plaka and Kokkino Chorio villages and just 5 minutes from Almyrida Beach with all its bars and restaurants. Also there is a taxi company based in Almyrida to take you to Chania with it's famous Ventian Harbour or Rethymnon with it's smaller harbour, both just 20-30 minutes away. Beautiful views of Souda Bay and the Lefka Ori Mountains with it's famous gorges such as the Samaria Gorge. Surrounded by traditional pretty Greek villages like Vamos, fantastic walks. The working fishing town of Kalives is just 10 minutes away for banks, supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants with a beautiful beach and harbour. The area is famous for it's fabulous sunsets.
