Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Maza - Villa Aloni

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Pool, Fireplace

The stone villa Aloni has been designed with love and care so that you can enjoy your holidays throughout the year, on hot summer days or on cold winter nights…with your partner, family or friends.

Enjoy the sea,the sun and the Cretan hospitality!!

Villa Aloni has been built in a traditional style, with the skilful use of stone and wood. This combination, gives a traditional warm atmosphere. This luxury villa provides all the comforts to ensure a pleasant and relaxing holiday.

Villa Aloni cans accommodate up to 5-6 people in the 2 spacious bedrooms. All double beds are equipped with mosquito nets, to ensure your uninterrupted sleep.

Your stay will enable you to escape from routine, resting by the fire place in the comfortable open-plan sitting room, with a view of the swimming pool and the luxuriant garden, where you can sip your wine, read, play board games or do whatever you like. You can also enjoy a hydro massage in the spacious bathroom or take a rest on the terrace, enjoying the view of the Apokoronas area or relax on the swing in the garden among the various plants and olive trees.

The name “Aloni “ refers to the circular stone “threshing floor” which is still in the garden. This was used in the past to separate the grain from the chaff.

Villa Aloni is situated in Maza, a small village in the Kruoneridas municipality, in the region of Apokoronas in the county of Chania, in Western Crete.

Maza is a small village in the foothills of the mountains, with about 100 permanent inhabitants. Maza is situated in an area of great natural beauty, where you can enjoy walks along country lanes among the greenery. There are also several old churches, like St. Nicolas in the village square. There is also a traditional café end two taverna.

The village is about 37 km from the town of Chania, 35km from Rethymno and about 40 km from Chania airport Daskalogiannis. Souda, the nearest port is 30 km away. The nearest health centre is in the village Vamos 10 km away and the Lake Kournas is 9 km away. Maza is only a five-minute drive from the traditional village Vrisses 3 km. away, famous from the fresh yogurt. It takes about 10 minute to drive to the nearest beach at Georgioupoli, about 6km away.

As regards the county of Chania, it is worth visiting the Samaria Gorge, the White Mountains and numerous traditional villages. In Chania town itself, a visit to the old Venetian harbor with the beautiful Egyptian lighthouse and the nearby Turkish quarters should not be missed. There are plenty of clean, safe beaches for you to choose from in the area.

Gorgeous - everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

This is perfect. The villa is of recent build and in almost pristine condition: very well-equipped and kitted out. It was too cold to make more than token use of the pool in April, but still lovely to have it there. Fires both inside and out were lovely. Stephanos was enormously helpful, getting groceries to our specification before we arrived, and letting us stay until early afternoon on our last day: his mother (who lives in the village) also came round with a tray of homemade pies for us. The taverna in the village produces good food in alarming quantities. We spent most of our time in and around the house, or on the beach at Georgiopolis (less then 15 mins drive), but did find time to visit the stunning ruins at Aptera, half-way to Chania. We'd gladly come again: our boys, aged 5 and 8, both came home declaring it was the best holiday ever.

Villa Aloni September 2013

  • 4 of 5

The villa was very clean and well equiped and the pool and garden well maintained.The only slight criticism was the size of the sheets on the bed but since the weather was warm it was not too great a problem. The location suited us well and we enjoyed several evenings at Costas and Voula's taverna after days touring between Georgiopolis and the south coast. The shops in Vrises provided all the food we needed for our stay and Stefanos visited twice to make sure we had everything we needed.

Familys Klein and Pohl

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderschönen und vor allem erholsamen Urlaub in der "Villa Aloni" verlebt. Das Haus, der Pool und die gesamte Anlage waren einfach ein Traum. Keinerlei Hektik- fernab vom Massentourismus. Nur die Stimmen der Tiere aus der angrenzenden Nachbarschaft waren zu hören. Das Haus bietet alles was man benötigt und ist sehr gut ausgestattet - vor allem mit Elektrogeräten, es fehlt einfach nichts.

Die Gastfreundschaft unseres Vermieters Stefanonos, seiner Mutter und vor allem die Herzlichkeit der Bewohner des angrenzenden kleinen Dorfes Maza war überwältigen. In nur wenigen Gehminuten waren wir in der kleinen Taverne von Kosta und seiner Familie. Hier erlebt man das ursprüngliche Griechenland, es gibt keine Speisekarte sondern man wird überrascht mit Voulas abwechslungsreichen Kochkünsten. Wir haben hier viele gemütliche und unvergessliche Abende verlebt.

Die Villa Aloni ist ein besonderes Urlaubsziel und kann nur weiter empfohlen werden. Es ist bestimmt nicht das letzte mal gewesen, dass wir hier waren.

Vielen Dank für Alles.

perfect place for holidays with kids

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Villa Aloni waw excellent. The description in the site was accurate, the information and service before arrival was great.

The villa was clean and had everything needed for a family. Our three kids had enough space to sleep and to play in side and espesialy outside the villa.

The owner was very descred in his visits and kept the place and pool clean.

We would recoment it to frieds and would like to visit it next year again.

The location of the villa was also very good, because you can go by foot to the village of Maza to dine at the local beautifull, tastfull taverna of Kostas which is next to an very old church. The nearest village for shopping is also very close (abt 5 minutes by car).

In general it is a good place to sea and visit southwest and northwest crete.

Thank you for the lovely stay!!!!

A perfect rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Aloni exceeded all our expectations in terms of quality and facilities. We were looking for somewhere in "hidden Crete" and this property in Maza gave us a sense of rural remoteness but with access to the national road (and easy drives to Hania and Rethymnon) in 5 minutes. The villa was excellently equipped with every modern convenience (except a dishwasher which might have been an asset for a larger party). Everything worked effectively and when the kettle broke, this was replaced immediately. The swimming pool is on the small side but ideal for those who want a quick dip to cool down after a day's hiking or sunbathing.It was cleaned well and not over-treated with chemicals. We were praticularly impressed by the range of kitchen and bathroom items provided (soap,shampoo, washing powder, salt, pepper, kitchen towels, herbs) which made arrival very easy.

We enjoyed the privacy of the villa which is not overlooked by any other properties, and the gentle sounds of the adjoining houses with their chickens, ducks, turkeys and goats and the abundant birdsong.

Access from the road is by means of a short steep drive but the shaded parking space is on site. The road on which Villa Aloni stands is very quiet, ideal for a walk along into the countryside or down into the village of Maza where there are two (all day) local tavernas serving real Cretan dishes - no menu, what is available that day is cooked - within 5 minutes. There are no shops in the village but Vrysess is 10 minutes drive (or 45 minutes hot walk) away where there is a full range of services (supermarkets, tavernas, petrol stations, bakery, ice cream, bank etc).

Stefanos was a perfect landlord, looking after our every need and being available as necessary by text and email. He was as warmhearted, friendly and very generous (as we have found all Cretans to be),but quiet and unobtrusive when doing the pool and house cleaning.

Villa Aloni ticked every box for us. It became our "home" rather than a house we were renting. We were sad to leave and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a taste of real Crete.

Great home base for discovering Crete

  • 5 of 5

Villa Aloni is in a sweet little town in the hills of Crete, not far from the highway, but a world away. It served as a great base for exploring Chania, Rethymno, Hora Sfakia and smaller villages, like Vrisses. Maza itself is a very small town, with a huge heart. You will enjoy a special meal prepared by the family of the local taverna owner, Costas. The villa itself is comfortable and lovely. It is completely modern while seeming totally traditional. The grounds are beautiful and one of our favorite evenings was cooking over a wood fire and eating outdoors. Don't hesitiate for a moment to make this your home base for a Crete vacaation... even in the off season as we did. The owner was welcoming and helpful. Enjoy!
