Fantastic quiet location with amazing views! approx 30 mins drive to beaches and many attractions. Great size accommodation with lots of space for our party (7 adults 4 kids 1 baby) the villa was kept very clean with pool cleaning daily and sheets towels changed twice a week. The stand out thing of the stay was the owner and people who changed the sheets not only did they leave us a small welcome package but during the stay we were treated to gifts of homemade cake homemade olive oil and alcohol and more melon than we could possibly eat. A fantastic holiday with even better customer care from the owner and his team. Would highly recommend.

A wonderful place with a very friendly family looking after it. Sitting at night overlooking Heraklion listening to the sounds of Crete is a memory that we will hold dear. We hope to be back one day.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Villa Zeus. The villa was amazing and views were breathtakingly beautiful. The locals were so friendly and accommodating we arrived at the Taverna for a drink late one evening and they were closing however they opened up again and made us so very welcome. Another evening they were celebrating a family birthday party and we felt like we were intruding however they made us feel very welcome again and we felt like part of the family. The accommodation was first class. We were a party of 6 and had plenty of room as the villa sleeps 12. The swimming pool was a great feature and we spent many days relaxing around the pool and the men and children really enjoyed the games room which was a perfect retreat for a siesta. A wonderful holiday and I would definitely go back to Villa Zeus.

The owners live near but never intruded they were very friendly, helpful and left us bread, cheese and wine etc when we arrived. We were able to try local produce which was lovely and very well received.

Loved it everything we wanted. Pool privacy in a quiet location and we got it all. Owners very nice and ensured everything was ok. Even left wee gifts like grapes nuts etc. Would recommend it if you are looking for that get away from it all. Taverna good too limited menu but for the location and size of it it did the job as they say. Would go back and would recommend it.

Villa Zeus is a beautiful villa with furnishings of a high standard. The lovely pool was a real bonus to our holiday. We spent many happy hours relaxing in and around it. The villa is in a wonderful private location; and close to the pretty village with some excellent traditional tavernas. We would definitely recommend both the villa and it's peaceful location.
