Thank you Andrey for the good review. It's been a pleasure to have you and your family as guests. We look forward to welcome you back to Villa Argo in the future.
Beautiful house in a lovely location
We have thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks stay in this lovely house with fantastic views over Souda Bay. The location is perfect - quiet yet close to the beach and restaurants. The house is very welcoming and is equipped with everything you may need during your stay. It is also fully air conditioned which is very important as it gets very hot in Crete in summer. There are amazing views over the bay from the terrace. Small resort of Almyrida is beautiful with great variety of restaurants. Sandy beach with crystal clear waters is one of the best we have visited on the island and fabulous for kids of any age. Great opportunities for water sports. We really fell in love with this area and are hoping to come back soon.
Dear Family Escandari

thank you again
Peace, quiet and serenity.
Thank you, Amy,
Once again the 4 weeks staying in Villa Argo was a balm
To the soul.
The peace we found in morning just sitting with our breakfast of yogurt, honey and fruit soaking up the
warming sun on the terrace.
The welcome shade from midday sun and the glorious skies of evening, what more could we need.
I always feel we are coming home to Villa Argo and it is a special place for us.
Although there was plenty of room for visitors, we are never the less pleased to keep the time to ourselves. Good to have fine tavernas in Almiriyda to enjoy.
Thank you, once again and will return.
