<<We particularly enjoyed the silence, sounds of nature and the colourfull garden wall of bougainville, roses and conifers. We saw Bonelli eagles flying at least onces every day (ones even a griffonn vulture!) The villa is modern with rustic details, room are high. The villa is indeed fully equiped for 6 persons. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare quality food, and also the bbq is fully equipped. We even baked or ouwn bread. We used the Cretan Cookbook in the villa many times (english/german/dutch). There are alo tavernas in de surrounding area. The pool is big enough to swim lanes and there are 6 beds of good quality. For us it was a meditative and relaxing environment. We enjoyed driving the last part uphill, yes it is quit steep but we had no problems. The owner is helpfull, generous and friendly. When we arrived there were bottles of water in the fridge, bread to make toast, marmelade, butter and fruit. And off corse, raki on the table. This was our second time in Villa Ikaros and again we enjoyed this little paradise very much>>
