The villa was as described, fully air conditioned, comfortable beds, cleaned twice a week and in a great location - peaceful but with quick and easy access to amenities, local attractions and main road network for going futher afield. Crete has amazing history, fabulous scenery, beeches and local foods.
We really chilled out, relazing by the pool or more frequently on the balcony with the views and cooling sea breeze.
The owners are extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. We would definately recommend the property and would return ourselves.

My family and I had the most wonderful stay in Villa Avrilio. Helen and Mike are wonderful...we arrived to wonderful Cretan goodies and a fabulous villa. Conveniently located for beaches, chania, airport and amazing food places and yet so secluded with views over valleys and to the sea.
Peaceful, relaxing and completely perfect.
We will, without doubt, be returning. Thank you so for a fabulous holiday
It was a dream.
Beautifull view, very calm. Pool cleaned 2taweek.
The villa is more beautifull than whayt you can see on the pictures.
The owner provides an excellent customer service and is very kindly (excellent cake and rakki at our arrival).
I surely recommand it to a friend but ... not to many, i hope go there in the future!!!
We had a great time in Villa Dimitri in Galatas. Helen and Michael the owners welcomed us with products of their property : olive oil, melons... The house is very large and clear, opening to a large valley planted with olive trees, at the end of the valley we can see the sea, it is very quiet we can only ear the.cicadas...
We stayed here with our 3 teenagers and we enjoyed of course the swimming pool and each child could have is own room ! As the house is on the hill, it was always slightly windy and never too hot (at least when we stayed here).
The house is in the countryside (a car is necessary) about 5 minutes from Galatas and very near Hania (10-15 minutes by car). There are shops in the village of Galatas.
We had nice talks with Helen and Michael who had been very charming people.
We can warmly recommend this house to spent a very nice and resting vacation;
Nous avons passé à Galatas une excellente semaine de vacances, nous avons apprécié la maison très vaste et confortable, la piscine et la vue sur les oliviers et la mer au fond de la vallée. Nous espèrons pouvoir y revenir une autre fois et revoir les propriétaires Helen et Michael qui ont été charmants et très accueillants.
My wife and I stayed in villa Avrilio from 26-7-2009 until 3-8-2009. In one word : superb !! The villa was very complete and offers enough space for 6 persons.
The view was magnificent, the pool is just great.
A perfect place to come to rest, with great hospitality of the owners (Helen and Mike).
Location : just a 5 minute drive from the village of Galatas, with 2 restaurants and small supermarket. The lovely city of Chania is only a 10 minute drive. Like every place in Crete this location is filled with the sounds (after one day it sounds like music) of the day-crickets.
If you are looking for a luxury villa in the most beautiful part of Crete : don't hesitate and choose Old Fountain Villa's in Galatas !!!
