SUMMER RENTAL COMMENTS:
We had a fantastic stay at Villa Kallisto. The pool was nice and cool and Almyrida is a nice place to eat. Overall an amazing stay. Thank you Andy and Helen - August 2018.
Perfect villa in a wonderful location. Beautiful views. Nicely decorated throughout. Fab holiday. Villa Kallisto is just wonderful - a gem in the hillside - we loved our stay. The villa is absolutely stunning and in a fabulous location. Helen and Andy are just brilliant. Very attentive and answered any queries very quickly. Plaka which is 10 mins away has got some lovely restaurants. Almyrida is great. The beach is perfect for children. The sea is clear and warm and there are numerous places to eat. Makis was a favourite for lunch. This part of Crete is an absolute gem. We loved every minute of it and will definitely be returning - August 2018.
We had a fun packed two weeks at Villa Kallisto with our young family and friends spent mostly by the fantastic pool. The villa provided everything we needed and more - spot on! Thank you Andy and Helen for sharing your villa with us - June 2018.
Just come back from Crete, our seventh visit. Stayed at Villa Kallisto on this holiday. Fantastic villa and location - May 2018.
Lovely villa with amazing views across the bay - August 2017.
Villa Kallisto provided us with a relaxing week. We enjoyed the pool and views around the villa. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were sumptuous. We loved Almirida and spend many an evening drinking cocktails and dipping our toes in the warm sea. A beautiful resort with glorious sunsets. Plaka was a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. We all had an enjoyable time - we had an 80's film fest using the DVD's and educated our children. Andy was very welcoming and helpful. Thank you for an enjoyable stay - August 2017.
A fabulous villa for a week in the sun. My wife, three daughters and I had a wonderful time here. The view from the pool, the kitchen and the front balcony is amazing. Our favourite tavernas were Elpis in Plaka and Sunset, on the way down the hill out of Plaka, more for its brillian view over the bay than for its food. Overall we had an absolutely brialliant time, thanks to Andy and Helen - July 2017.
We've had a wonderful time here! The villa and views are sublime. Thank you so much - July 2017.
We were the first visitors to this villa. Brilliant value for a very classy place, cleverly designed with the kitchen upstairs to make the most of the views. Very well kitted out too with lots of bathrooms. Fab pool. We especially enjoyed Elpis restaurant in Plaka. The owner, Andy, was very helpful with tips about supermarkets, restaurants etc. We had a wonderful week - July 2017.
