“Excellent villa in a stunning location”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We arrived late and arrived to find a lovely villa, plenty of room and a nice welcome pack from the owners. It was not until we woke up in the morning and looked out until we saw what a gem we had found.
The view over the lake and past to the sea was spectacular.

Looking from the upper balcony, over your private pool to a huge lake and then olive groves before the sea is a view you will never get tired of.

The accommodation was clean, well proportioned with all the basics you need for a great holiday.

Air con in all the rooms and mosquito blinds built into every door and window caters for all cooling and ventilation needs.

There is a big kettle BBQ to use on the upper patio. The three main bedrooms have direct access to the lower patio and the pool.

Plenty of pool furniture available around a good sized pool.

The local taverna is p for breakfast and was still serving at midnight on our first night. Good food at a good price and only 50 meters away!

The other tavernas all serve great food with Ambrosia (5 minute walk away) offering the best locally. You do need to spray for mosquitos there though...

The lake is beautiful and a must is the pedallo hire on the lake. Fish, terrapins, eeels, and bird life all there for the viewing. Or just relax and use the binoculars in the villa to watch the others pedalling away....

A car is an essential for here. We would have been fairly stuffed without it.

Georgeopolis is close enough if you want the busier side of life and far enough away if you don't.

We had a really great 10 days there and would not hesitate to recommend the stay to others.

“Fabulous family holiday at Villa Splendid”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Just back from an excellent two week stay at Villa Splendid.
Perfect for our family of five which includes three teenage boys.
The villa is modern,spacious and was spotlessly clean on our arrival.A welcome pack of wine,bread,olive oil,milk and preserves was perfect after a long journey.
The villa is on two levels with three bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor and kitchen/lounge and shower room upstairs.
Outside there is a balcony with outdoor table and chairs and a barbeque and on the ground floor a generous pool area and an additional terrace.
The villa has a well equipped kitchen and there is a plentiful supply of towels available ,in addition all the linen was changed during our stay and the pool was cleaned.
The location of the property is breathtaking with wonderful views of Lake Kournas and the coast.We enjoyed many days out on the lake which a lovely 15 minute walk from the villa,and visits to the beach at Georgioupolis which was a 10 minute drive away.
We barbequed at the villa on a number of occasions and visited the Kavalos Taverna, which is just a minutes walk from the villa, frequently.Excellent ,simple Cretan food in a beautiful setting.
Anne and Richard who look after the property for the owner are very helpful and friendly.
We would highly recommend Villa Splendid as the perfect place to stay in Crete.

“An amazing villa with a view to match.”

Stayed in this villa in August. It is a most beautiful villa with an excellent pool and all the amenities you could ever wish for in a holiday rental. The villa is beautifully maintained inside and out and we had many an enjoyable evening sitting on the balcony enjoying the setting sun over the mountain that is above the lake. The view over the fresh water like is exceptional and in the 11 days we were there you could never tire of it. We swam in the lake every morning before breakfast. There are many superb local tavernas to eat in, and a visit to the local town of Georgopolis is a must to enjoy a walk along the seafront with a drink in one of the many local bars. I would highly recommend this villa.

“THE VIEWS ARE TO DIE FOR - STUNNING PLACE”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We arrived during the night so it wasn't until we awoke that we truly saw the views, opening the bedroom doors to those views was amazing, the photos look great, but the reality is so much better. Villa is huge, very spacious and Kevin & Teri were lovely hosts.
I was with my mum & aunt (all 3 of us aged 35 - 55), we got a taxi every other day into Georgopolis for trip out (also closest supermarket) (its 8€ each way, we decided this was cheaper than hiring a car for us). English is spoken by most out there so had no problems communicating, food is wonderful, so fresh & tasty. Lake Kuernos is great fun with the pedalos, tavernas & souvenier shops.
Katrinas Taverna which is literally 2 villas away is SUPERB, she cooks to order and it was some of the best food we tasted and very reasonable (around 30€ for the 3 of us to eat & drink!!)
Please remember at night once sun goes down it does cool down a fair bit, so warm clothes are a must for the evenings/nights.
Take DVD's if you want to watch tv, theres a small portable DVD player to use. Local Tv is available.
There is no Wifi in the actual villa although Katrinas up the road has it, so you just walk outside and up the road to borrow their signal.
Ensure you keep plenty of bottled water, Cretes water & electric can come and go, so just be prepared, we managed to survive fine with it all.
As ell as the view of the lakes you also have the sea view which is also amazing.
The Sweets & Desserts place in Georgopolis square is amazing, waffles, crepes and yummy cakes, ice creams and shakes is a must to visit. Cotton club down towards the beach is also a great taverna to eat at.
There is a bread van every morning, he beeps around 9am and stops just up the road, fresh bread, rolls & biscuits, perfect for your breakfast if you catch him.
Most of all...ENJOY!!!
