Wow! That is the first word that comes to mind when remembering our perfect family holiday at Villa Isabelle. From the start of our booking process to the very last day of our holiday, Audrey and the team at Luxury Villas on Crete offered a fantastic service. Villa Isabelle was recommended as the perfect venue for our family group of 14 people. It didn’t disappoint! It is set approx 3 miles out of Sisi but access to town is easy via taxi or rental car (transportation is a must as this villa is not really walk-able to any shops / restaurants). The villa is set on the hillside with the most magnificent views out to the coast, we discovered this gave us the most stunning sunset views every night as the sun sank into the horizon! Beautiful!
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 pool area is one of the best I have ever experienced (even staying at 5 star resorts). It is extremely well looked after, gets sunshine all day long and is huge - great for big & little people to enjoy and the shallow baby pool is brilliant. The BBQ area is just awesome and gives the most wonderful breakfast / lunch / dinner area for socializing and easily accommodated all of our group.
We booked catering from Eleni & Yiannis from Cretan Miracle (recommended by Audrey)....this was the best decision of all! Their food was amazing! They prepared, served and cleared everything which made for a restaurant like experience in the comfort of the villa. This is a must do experience!
All in all, this was my first visit to Crete and I can’t wait to return. Thank you to all the team at Luxury Villas in Crete.
