Spring/Summer 2023: Fine art, glowing reviews and a new coffee machine
One of our guests who evidently enjoyed her stay has just presented us with this wonderful gift -- an exquisite watercolour of the facade of Villa Poppy with our olive tree. We were absolutely delighted to receive it and it will shortly adorn a wall in the living room, once it has been framed. We will treasure it. Thank you very much indeed!
And here's the artist's inspiration. Glowing reviews are rolling in this season thanks in no small measure to our tirelessly efficient manager Kym and her team who keep everything spotless and working. The view helps, of course. And the pool. And the terrace and comfortable rooms. And the proximity to some of the best beaches in Crete and the charming town of Agios Nikolaos, and the wild, romantic mountains and hilltop villages patrolled by cats.
Allow us to present our new Nespresso coffee machine. If you haven't used one before: Fill the back with water (pull and lift to get it off), plug in, press the blinking buttons on the top to allow the water to heat, put in a capsule of your choice, push the lever back, choose your desired coffee size by pushing a button once they stop blinking.
We now have solar-powered fairy lights around our terrace pergola, along the railing and in the flower beds. Also, the overhead pergola light can now be switched off to ensure more atmospheric lighting on those balmy Cretan summer nights.
