We had a lovely relaxing week at Villa Amour. The villa is well equipped and the layout works really well for a family travelling with an older person. It is a short and easy walk into the village and is well placed for visiting the many delights of the Chania prefecture. Thank you for the fishmonger information … a fabulous shop with really helpful staff. July 2022
