Our trip at the villa was simply amazing. Epitropakis our host was wonderful, accomodating to our needs in a personal matter. He was easy to reach at all times so if we needed something from him, he would provide it.
His mother is the person who cleans the house twice a week, and she also came over often to give us a breakfast that had only fresh ingredients straight from her garden! One day, she recommended a place for us to eat on Falassarma beach. She called the restaurant and when we arrived we were told that all our drinks for the night would be free. It turns out that the staff knew the mother and lived in Tavronitis themselves. Once we had finished our meal (which lasted 5 hours because they brought out so many courses) the waiter DROVE US HOME in our car because he was afraid we were too drunk (even though we weren't). I suppose I'm telling this story because this is the type of personalized service you can expect from Epitropakis and his mother.
The villa's location is also great--20 minutes from Chania city center and it's to the west of Chania which means its closer to famous beaches such as Elafonisi and Balos.
Here is a tip: when searching for the villa on Google Maps, use "Antilia Apartments Tavronitis" instead of Caneva Luxury Villas. We got lost on the first day, but it wasn't too worrisome becaues Epitropakis met up with us and brought us there (of course).
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who is staying in Crete. I honestly can't imagine a better place to stay and I feel sorry for the tourists who chose to stay in hotels. This place is so much nicer and you will get an authentic Cretan experience. DO IT!!
