This Cretan villa caught our eye for its location, just a stone’s throw away from the Aegean Sea. You’ll have your own private terrace here, with an alfresco dining table and bistro table, as well as access to a shared dining area overlooking the water – the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Situated in the pretty fishing village of Sissi, you’re only a short stroll from the centre, where you’ll find waterfront tavernas and a weekly market. At full occupancy, two guests will be sleeping on the sofa beds in the kitchen/dining area. We think this home is best suited to a couple or a family that doesn't mind the unconventional sleeping arrangements.

Home truths

    As well as a private terrace, you’ll have access to an outdoor dining area overlooking the sea. It’s shared with the building's other guests.

    If you're travelling with little ones, your host can provide a cot for free. You'll need to request it in advance.

    At full occupancy, two guests will be sleeping on two single sofa beds in the kitchen/dining area. These are best suited to children.

    While the alfresco dining table seats six, the indoor dining table only seats two so isn’t big enough to accommodate everyone when the villa is at full capacity.
