Guests who have returned again and again say it is the combination of a sense of seclusion and relaxation, safety for the children and child-friendliness that brings them back. Couples who have returned say it is because of the sense of space and relaxation in a romantic setting.

Lindy D.

Dear Lefteris
This is to thank you and your family for our wonderful holiday at Stavros Apartments.My two friends and I enjoyed every moment of our holiday and hope to return soon.
Best wishes

Patricia Nield and family:
Just a quick message to say how much we enjoyed our holiday this year. Your accommodation, care and delicious food made for a really relaxing time. With the fantastic weather it couldn't have been much better, just another week would have been great! Hope to see you again next year.

Villa Seli, Sheryl Crane:
We had an absolutely super time. Just wished we'd booked it for two weeks. So tempting! Having now had two fabulous holiday experiences with Meon Villas, we are considering booking with you again in September. Can't wait!

Villa Seli, Naomi Graham:
This was our first holiday with our 6-month old baby and we had a superb time. My parents-in-law were with us for the first week (just long enough!) and then we were on our own. The villa was huge and we were really grateful for the indoor pool. Our daughter loved it. We weren't too far away from the local village and supermarket, yet it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The views out to sea were outstanding. Our Concierge, Sue, was brilliant. She wasn't too intrusive but ensured that everything we needed for our daughter was provided - a steriliser, cot, bouncer, high chair. The works! She was a font of knowledge and great fun! We'd thoroughly recommend Crete and Villa Seli for young families. We felt really safe, there was loads to do, and the villa was just perfect.

The Raineys:
Thanks for a nice holiday.Say hello to the family and everyone down there. See you next year John Helle Leena and Liam.

Shirley and Terry Burt:
Having visited Stavros Studios for ten years in a row this alone must mean something. The location is idyllic, Despina's food is out of this world and Stavros is quite wonderful as are all the family. Thavmassio!!! (sorry it's not in Greek) With lots of love.

Chris Weavers:
'On my first visit,in 1995, I knew I had found paradise. A beautiful quiet hideaway, on a beautiful island,and a friendly family to make everyone very welcome. A wonderful place in which to relax.' Thank you See you all in June,

"Stavros Villas looked too good to be true! After three visits we can confidently say the superb pool, quiet sandy beach, quality poolside taverna and bar are idyllic The Pardalakis family offer everything we dream of in our perfect holiday."

Family Pihlava from Finland:
Why we valued our holiday at Stavros studios? There is everything we need for a relaxing holiday!! The studios are well equipped, nice and clean. The whole place is very beautiful and peaceful. Best things are the Pardalakis family, the garden and the taverna and the best Greek food.

Dr. EMC Hafner-Burton:
Our visit to Stavros Villas was one of our best vacations yet! With close access to a lovely beach and a wonderful setting in the countryside, what could be better? We'd come again.

Ilan Bieber:
We really like the nice hospitality and the excellent food!!

Derek Harris and Deborah Scott:
"Stavros Villa Studios combine piece, quiet and a lovely setting with wonderfully friendly service and traditional Greek cooking...the tough bit is deciding between the beautiful warm pool and the 10 metre stroll to the beach! We'll be back!”

Kim Gardiner:
"Three visits so far – not enough! Planning our return! Wonderful memories of grills and salads with icy cold beers on the terrace, overlooking the quiet beach.Wonderful sunsets - peaceful, utter relaxation!! Lovely pool – usually deserted. Lovely rooms – great friends."

Christine Pflüger:
Staying at Stavros was one of the best holidays for me. Many greetings from Germany.

The LeGroves from the UK:
"We are all looking forward to August and our annual pilgrimage to your wonderful island."

The Fairbairn family from the UK who have returned several times had this to say:
"Stavros Studios is a real surprise -- a haven of peace on the bustling north west coast of Crete - a gem of a place nestling among the bamboos, and right on a clean and unspoilt beach. Family Pardalakis will give you a warm Cretan welcome and once you've tasted Despina's food ... you won't want to go anywhere else!"

The Roberts family:
"We were with you in 2000 and 2001 and are desperate to come back in 2003."

The Mughans:
"We would like to thank the whole family for making our stay here absolutely fantastic We certainly hope to return next year and hopefully bring some friends and family."
