Ravine view from your balcony, with spectacular sun rise in the mornings
Spacious, but we were only 2 people in villa for 6. Nevertheless, a roomy villa compared with others. Bit isolated - immediate area not very tourist-friendly - 20 minute drive for tavernas, resorts etc. Friendly and helpful host. A few initial maintenance problems - mostly resolved. Pleasant, private site of 3 villas.
Lavender villa is advertised for a maximum od 4 people, in a quiet non tourit location. Local village taverna is 10 min walk and a 5 min drive to the famous Souda fish tavernas

FROM: Lisa-Marie Edwards: Forida U.S.A.Hi Stan,Just wanted to drop you a line re: my stay @ Teresina.... Everything was wonderful, from the easy booking with you, to being met at the airport, and being looked after at the chalet by Ms. Ruth.. I have all good things to report... You have very good people taking care of the guests!Mickey was a very knowledgeable driver,not at all aggressive as other ja drivers i have had in the past, and a very pleasant person... i was able to obtain a pass for him for the sunsplash, and he was on time on call,a nd even loaned me an extra cell phone he had,which was very helpfull..Ms. Ruth is extra ordinary! she keeps the chalet very clean and comfortable, and is a very sweet person, her cooking is very good, and she is vey attentive.....Sunsplash looks to be an anual event, although they may explore an alternate month... so it is very likely I will visit again.Thank you for eveything.Lisa-Marie Edwards~
