Why Sarah Cuthbert chose Stavros

Villa Delfini was completed in July 2011 and marked the culmination of 5 years of design, planning, site clearing, building, painting, and shopping!

We first visited the Akrotiri in 1994 and fell in love with the place and the people, and returned for family holidays on and off for the next 10 years. Finally we took the plunge and bought this land and started planning our dream villa. Work began in 2007 and was slowed down by the fact that no building could take place during the summer, as this was a condition of the sale. However in Greece if the weather is bad no building can take place!! Add to that a global recession and the usual challenges of family life and you can perhaps see why it took so long! I have to say and I hope you’ll agree it was worth waiting for! We think the views are simply stunning and its very easy to while away the hours just gazing at all that blue!

We are very happy to be renting out our home and hope that you enjoy it and this area of Crete as much as we do, and maybe start to fall in love with it too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

[Rating: 5 stars]

Review title: Spacious privacy for large families

Date of stay: September 17 to 24, 2013

We were a party of 11 persons comprising six adults and five children, aged between 8 years and eight months. Our two sons and their families occupied four bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms and balconies with a magnificent sea view. We, the grandparents, occupied a fifth spacious bedroom also with en suite bathroom and large balcony.

Villa Delfini's separate levels offered each family its private space. The villa is elegant, functional and tastefully equipped with comfortable, good quality furnishings, and plenty of cupboard space.

The equally spacious living areas comprising a fully-equipped modern kitchen, salon and dining table, gave us a sense of togetherness without feeling that we were trampling over each other.

There was enough parking space for four cars behind the electronic gate. The private pool and outdoor shower was a treat and the children would have enjoyed even more the grassy lawn at the entrance to the villa if a few playground facilities were added.

Villa Delfini's gem is its grand airy patio, its huge dining table fit for feasts and barbecue grill protected from the gusty onshore winds at this time of the year.

The villa's manager, Lis Bentham, was a fireball of energy and a well of useful information. She supplied us with basic foodstuffs so that we had something to eat when we arrived at the villa late at night.

The villa was clean, well maintained and the service was faultless.

However, the slightest sound in the kitchen and living room, especially at night, reverberates throughout the whole villa, causing irate parents to complain that the noise of cluttering dishes awoke their babies. Maybe something can be done to dim the sounds.

We especially enjoyed the clean, sandy beach, sun chairs and shallow waters at Kalathas suited to young children, but like the other beaches we visited, it lacks proper showering and changing room facilities. Kalathas beach contrasted with the somewhat neglected and littered beach at Tersanas to which we did not return.

In Chania's Old Town we enjoyed a good meal at the Tamam restaurant and at the Apostolis fish restaurant on the harbor.

We also enjoyed the Thanasis Taverna at Blue Beach by the villa. The grilled sea bass and red snapper were fresh, the servings were generous, and the service was fast and friendly.

We definitely recommend Villa Delfini.

Sheer bliss!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Delfini is a delight - the interior and exterior decor is incredibly tasteful. Everything has been finished to a high standard and maintained very well, so you can enjoy the sun with no worries. It's the home you wish you had! Views from the terrace and pool across the sea (particularly during sunset/sunrise) are beautiful. The neighbouring villas are a good distance away and do nothing to hamper this. In short - exquisite.
Stavros itself is also a great location, with the beach nearby and lots of delicious restaurants only a short bike/drive away. There is also a homemade guidebook in the living room full of pictures and suggestions which is the only research you need! It was the icing on the cake. I really feel as though we made the most of being in this fantastic villa in an idyllic location. Can not come highly recommended enough. Thank you for a superb week and I hope I have the opportunity to come back again.

A dream villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Delfini is a beautiful villa with everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The villa itself has been recently furnished so everything is fresh and modern. The beds are comfortable, the showers are powerful, the kitchen is well stocked with modern appliances and the fridges (both inside and outside) are big enough for lots of food and lots of drink! The swimming pool and outside area are stunning and the pool is very clean. The outside eating area makes the evenings of your holiday even more special. We were staying as a group of friends, and our holiday in Crete and stay in Villa Delfini was wonderful. The beach is just down the road and the area is home to some fantastic restaurants (try Maliki's and the Windmill). It's also only a short taxi away from Chania airport, so it's very accessible. Definitely would recommend this villa!

The Perfect Crete Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We were a mixed, young group who stayed here for a week last summer and absolutely loved it. The surrounding area is perfect for relaxing on beaches, eating a lazy lunches in tavernas and spending afternoons touring local vineyards. The villa was very clean and the outdoor dining area ideal for watching the long sunsets over the crystal clear sea. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Beautiful villa in a quiet location with sea views

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Delphini is a modern villa which is fully equipped with everything you need when you are self catering. It is clean, light and airy with plenty of outside space for relaxing and eating. There is a BBQ conveniently placed near the large table outside where 11 of us could sit with plenty of room. The pool is a good size for swimming or games and the sea views are wonderful. There are several small beaches within walking distance of the villa, each with a Taverna. The manager Lis is very welcoming and will do all she can to ensure that you have a great holiday.

Beautiful views and a very relaxing holiday .

  • 5 out of 5
We were a group of 4 adults and 6 children aged between 7 and 14. We spent half term at Villa Delfini and we all loved it. The open plan living room/kitchen was welcoming and well thought out. The outside was spectacular with a lovely view of the sea. Loved the private balconies outside some of the bedrooms. It was relaxing just sitting there in the mornings with a cup of tea appreciating the view.
The children were entertained by the table football and the table tennis. We also played tennis in the hotel located a few minutes away by foot.
Liz the villa manager was full of enthusiasm and a great source of local information and recommended some great restaurants for us to eat at. She was extremely helpful.
Chania was only a short drive away and had lovely restaurants and shops.
There were quite a few lovely beaches located just a few minutes away in the car, the sea water was crystal clear.
We all really enjoyed the holiday and would love to return to the villa one day.

The village of Stavros at the tip of the Akrotiri peninsular nestles at the foot of Zorba's mountain, the film location for Zorba the Greek.

Villa Delfini has many beautiful sandy beaches nearby, Tersanas beach is sheltered and popular with families, while Kalathas is more bustling and boasts a beach taverna serving amazing local produce.The Taverna at Blue Beach is a stunning place to relax over a refreshing drink after sunbathing on the beach or snorkelling around the rocks.
