About Mary Fyntikaki

Hi, I am Mary and with my husband Giannis,we own this family villa.

I was born and grew up at this beautiful village and it is a really pleasure for us to have this home which we can offer for your holidays.

We take care of our guests personally and we just love making things for you.

We have three children, Manos and Stelios are our 'assistants' at the villa, and little Athina-Maria she is just 6yrs. In fact the name of the villa came from her name -'Athinais'.

Mary Fyntikaki purchased this villa in 2011

Why Mary Fyntikaki chose Platanias

This land was a gift from my parents and we took the decision to built this house because we love this area and the stunning views from the mountains to the sea. The villa is in the most fantastic location tucked away on the outskirts of the village. It was a really hard work but finally it was worth all the time and effort! You can also read the reviews from our past guests!

The village of Gerani is still very unspoilt and tranquil and it's a great place to come and relax.

Athinais Villa works really well for families with small children as also for honeymoon couples!

What makes this villa unique

Unique & romantic location!

The views are stunning, the place is very tranquil, yet close enough to civilisation to make it perfectly located for all modern amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary & family,



thank you for your wonderful hospitality! Your cakes are delicious! The villa is gorgeous as are the views. Despite a few reiny days we had a fantastic time.

We hope to be back again soon!

Thank you again for making us feel so welcome!



Best wishes

Better than we were expecting!

  • 5 out of 5
Many have already commented on the views, the quality of the house and the wonderful hospitality of the owners, all of which is very true. Let me add a few additional comments. The property itself is set in the middle of olive and orange trees and there are no neighbors nearby. If you are looking for someplace quiet and away from everyone, this is your house. The landscaping of the property is also exceptional. Roses and flowers are everywhere and while the views from far away are exceptional, so are those closer to home. My kids loved exploring the grounds.

While the house is secluded, it does not take long (5 - 7 minutes by car) to find yourself in the town of Plantanias, which is lined with hotels, restaurants, grocery stores and shops. We went a bit late in the season when it was not very busy, but the weather was still great (Thanks Mary for that). I would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Crete. It is centrally located and easy to get to whatever you are looking for. The beach at Falasarna (Phalasarna) was fantastic as was the Samaria Gorge, although I couldn't imagine going there during the season. The crowds would be maddening.

We hope to come back to this house. It was a perfect get away and we hated leaving.

Perfect Vacations.

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Athanais is by far the most memorable vacation spot we have ever been to. The house is beautiful, modern, furnished, spacious and its location gives it a breathtaking view of the Cretan seaside on the north, and mountain range on the south.
you can wake up in the he morning and watch the sunrise while eating fresh eggs, vegetables, pastries, etc, brought to you daily by the kind and generous family who owns the house.

Though I would always recommend renting a car whenever going on vacation in such a remote area as Crete! the house itself is in walking distance for healthy children and adults (not all elderly folks) from the village of Gerani and slightly further to the town center.

The Cretan food is delicious and the taverna down the hill from the villa (though with a limited menu) is a really good place to have homemade lunch or supper at very affordable prices.

It would also be important to mention that we had brought our 2 year old child with us and found that ( apart from the staircases) the house was very well equipped for children and babies. Cot, play areas, toys, etc.

All in all we had an extremely enjoyable stay in Crete thanks to the Fintikaki family and their wonderful villa. We definitely recommend it to everyone going to Crete!

Thanks a lot Mary and to your wonderful family
For the cookies and cake!

cheers!

Mattheo , Zoe and Rico Pichette.

Villa Athinais is quietly situated in a beautiful part of Chania,the village of Gerani ,very close to the famous sandy Blue Flag beaches of Gerani and Platanias.

The real joy is the sheer tranquility, waking up in the morning hearing the birds and sitting outside by the pool gaping at the amazing views over the blue sea. At night,you can sit at the balcony and watch at the spectacular night sky!

The location of the Villa is close to some of the regions most favoured attractions & offers plenty to see & do for everyone, of all ages and interests.

*Platanias: just 4km away from the most cosmopolitan area of the west Crete , village of Platanias, with many restaurants , shops , beach activities and nightlife.

*Falassarna beach (42 km): Falassarna Beach has won prizes for being the most beautiful beach in Crete and is always one of the top ten beaches in Europe, with its wonderful, fine white sand and warm, crystal-clear water.

*Balos ( ): Balos is among the most beautiful beaches in Chania Crete. It is located on the north westernmost spot of the prefecture of Chania. It is seen as a lagoon from the hills above the beach.

Balos has white sand, soft seabed and crystal water. Opposite the beach, there is a rocky island called Gramvoussa and on top of this island, there is a steep Venetian castle with gorgeous view to the region and the sea.

*Elafonisi (63 km): Elafonisi (or Elafonissos) is a small islet connected to the rest of Crete by a shallow reef that can be crossed when the sea is calm. This islet is lying on the south-west corner of Crete and can be reached by boat from Paleohora or by car from the village of Vathi, until a point and then cross the reef.

Elafonisi (Island of Deer) is like paradise on earth, and possessess a wonderful beach with pink coral sand and crystalline waters.

This magical place was deserted for a long time but now it has become a popular sight and can get pretty crowded during high summer season. Only a couple of cantinas can be found on the beach and no accommodations are available, but camping is allowed.
