Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Platanias - Villa Nemparta & Villa Kamares

Independent rustic villa, nice views, private pool, sleeps 2-6, fully equipped

The traditional hamlet of Metohi is located just outside the Maleme resort, 3km from Platanias, (see map) near the corner of western Crete. High quality and sensitivity in harmony with the cretan environment and its history are the main characteristics of our establishment.

Modern reality staggers before the dominance of stone, the simple Cretan hospitality, the love and respect towards the original character of the villas.

As you open the door of the villa of your choice, you open a small page of Cretan history. You feel the influence the primordial materials of wood and stone had on the creation and the dreams of the Cretan people.

The villas are only 800 meters from the beach and 500 meters from supermarkets, tavernas and drug stores. The city of Chania is only 15 kilometers away and the airport of Chania 25, both easily accessed.

Here in Metochi, the past meets the present for you who will choose to live the experience.

THE BEST HOLIDAY EVER

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the villa several times over a period of 3 years. Last time was in June 2005 when my husband proposed. Of all the holidays we have had those in Crete staying at the villa Kamares were the best. The owner's care and attention to details are second to none.. will never forget those happy times thankyou

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We really wanted to ceep this place for our`s self, our secret but that would be selfish. The house have a extrodinary atmosphare and the owners made us feel like a part of the family! So, enjoy your stay. Location of the house was just the way we like it, quiet and peasefull. The house was keept clean during our stay. Whit a car you can go to the most beatyfull beaches only one hour away ( Elafonisi Balos, Stavros, Fallasarna) and of course Chania! The nearest town Maleme have some nice tavernas, and in Platanias you have more to choose from, but it is more noicy, in between those places we found a restaurant named Bossa Nowa ( ask the locals about the direction ) Happy holiday.

wonderful villa, very quiet, owner very helpful

  • 5 of 5

The villa is not large but very intimate. there is everything inside necessary for a long stay. Like to be at home but with all comforts for a great summer holiday ( a wonderful pool, very conformable outdoor facilities)

Very clean (every 2 days we got a very nice lady for house cleanings and line change) Very quiet location, although in very short distance from night life (if you like). Owner extremely gentle and helpful, he did everything to make our stay at the top. Located in a very central position to reach the more amazing beaches. If I will fly to Creta again, no doubts this will be the place I will choose .

Relaxing vacations in Crete

  • 5 of 5

The rental is an old style villa.

It is in a quiet location, really cozy, with a high stone wall surrounding the swimming pool - making the villa totally private ;)

It had everything that we wanted, even a Jacuzzi bath tub!!!

Michalis and Katerina (the owners) treated us like family.

There is parking for 4-5 cars, and easy access to the nice beach of Falaserna and Platanias

We had the time of our life in Crete.

Thank you, and hope to visit you again.
