Seit Jahren "Urlauben" wir in der Villa Stella und es gefällt uns in jedem Jahr wieder.

Die tolle Lage, der geniale Blick, der nette Service von Stella (der besser ist als in manchem Hotel).

Mietwagen ist zwingend notwendig, aber wenn man den hat, sind die kurzen Wege zum Einkaufen nach Plakias oder zu den tollen Stränden der Umgebung gut zu bewältigen, so dass ein Pool nicht fehlt.

Und, für's Abendessen gibt es in Mirthios vier wunderbare Tavernen in fußläufiger Entfernung.
Da kann man das Auto stehen lassen.

Wir freuen uns schon auf den Oktober.

Answer der Gastgeber 20/06/2012 Dear Schrader-family!
thanks a lot for your nice comments about Villa Stella.

We are very glad that after 24 years to this job we have succeed to offer to our guests a place where they can relax, forgetting the everyday routine, living next to nature, next to sea, into the environment of cretan hospitality.
