Our family of 11 visited Isabella in August. This was our first visit to Crete and I can’t wait to return. Thank you to all the team at Luxury Villas in Crete.
The villa is modern and the rooms well sized with space for our group of 9 adults and baby. The villa is set on the hillside and is private and secluded with panoramic views of the coast, most evenings we enjoyed sundowners pool side.
If staying at the villa rather than venturing out then the outdoor and indoor eating areas are more than capable of accommodating the full visitors. The pool, kids pool and the associated poolside was really good. It also enjoys all day sunshine - great for our smallest to largest.. The outdoor area is super and you can eat out breakfast / lunch and dinner as well as play games, chat and read.
The information in the villa is comprehensive on the local area and things to do. A car or use of the taxi service is essential to access nearby Sissi, Malia for shops, beaches and tavernas etc... We traveled with our grown up kids so there was no discussion on who took the master suite with its private terrace and large en-suite - if we were with friends then it could have been a subject of discussion for who had this room. The other rooms are similar to each other with their own en-suites.
The villa has everything you could need and is equipped / maintained to a high standard. The only slightly off balance thing I would mention is the spectacular master suite - luckily we had decided on its residents for the week but this could be open to some discussion if traveling as a group of different families!! This room is amazing and offers the best views, space and facilities. All the other rooms are also lovely (just considerably smaller)!
The team at Luxury Villas on Crete were helpful from providing advice to organizing the cars with transfer chaperones (which I would highly recommend).
