Fantastic villa!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a satisfying stay in Villa Katerina. Surrounded within driving distance by beautiful beaches of Falassarna, Elafonissi and Balos. A truly relaxing feel in this luxurious villa with its large pool, spacious rooms with a lovely view of the green mountains. The villa offers quiet and peace, perfect place to really unwind and de-stress.

Modern villa in very nice location

  • 5 out of 5
We spent one week in the villa and are fully satisfied. The house is located on the hillside in a quiet small village, and thus absolutely calm, allowing you to relax. If you want some more action, you can reach the next beach within a two minutes by car. Also minimarkets and the "new national road" which provides a good connection to Chania and other sights are easily accessible.
The villa was spatious and well equipped (air conditionioning, all necessary kitchen appliances etc.) and nicely furnished.
The owner (Manolis) was very friendly and gave us some insider tips on the best places and restaurants to visit - as well as some fresh vegetables from their garden. We were really amazed by the hospitality of the Greek people, and will for sure visit Crete again during our next holidays.

Beautyful stay at villa Katerina for the 2nd time

  • 5 out of 5
We spent our holidays for the 2nd time at the Villa Katerina in Spilia and we enjoyed it very much. The Villa has a phantastic view to the mountains as well to the mediteran sea. The Villa and the garden are well maintained and very clean. The photos show the real life in the Villa Katerina. It´s a lovely place for a relaxing holiday. The Owner Manolis gave us vey good ideas where to go. So we visited Paleohora, Falasarna ( Sunset ) and a lot more. So we can recommend to follow his tips. Yiannis, his father brought us fresh vine and vegetables. Also we got a lovely birthday cake which was a great surprise. So we are sure that we´ll come back next year :-).

Picture Perfect Stay

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the villa for 2 weeks (July/August 2012).

The villa is only matched by the kindness of Manolis and his parents. All of them are always willing to help and to give you advice without being obtrusive.

The quality of the experience of their guests is something they seem to always have in mind.

You can go the the villa .... rest assured that you experience will be a very pleasnt one .... no question asked.

Spilia is the perfect base if you want to avoid massive touristic zone .... quiet, wild and pristine .... this is certainly the best of Crete wrapped in the warmth welcome of the Iannis family.

EXCELLANT - July 2012 !!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Katerina was every thing we wanted and more. We were more than pleased with every aspect of our stay.

Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 teenagers (13 & 17). And we all enjoyed our stay very much. We stayed for 2 weeks in this immaculate, well maintained, spacious villa. The description and pictures of the villa were acccurate but do not do it justice. The views are absolutely breath taking.
The villa and garden and pool and outside dining areas are amazing and you will find it hard to drag yourself away from this peaceful, quiet, restful haven.

The bedrooms were all very nice with excellant air conditioning and there own ensuites. The kitchen was clean and fully equipped. The bonus of olive oil, raki and some basics were also much appreciated. The furniture in the living room is very comfortable, and there was plenty of room for our family of 6 people. The teenagers found having WIFI a bonus and had no problems with it.

The owner Monolis was extremely freindly and very helpful and his parents were very kind and gave us great service from beginning to end. They gave us lots of advice and help, plus gifts of wine, olive oil and fresh oranges and vegetables straight from their garden behind the house.

Manolis recommended some excellant places -Falassarna - to watch the sunset, Chania by evening is beautiful, elofonissi is a definate must see, it is beautiful and excellant for snorkling. We also went to a water park for day at limnoupolis where fun was had by all and is great for all ages.There are many excellant beaches just short car journeys away. A car is a must have even if you intend to stay local.

We ate out several times both locally and in Chania, Kolimbari had some excellant restaurants - Palio Arhontiko along the waterfront being our favorite (the staff and food are excellant).

The villa is ideally suited to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Western Crete, it is in a peaceful, rural area with great views but only minutes away from the main road to all areas. And only a few minutes from local ammenities (super market, bakery, restaurants)

We would definately recommend this villa to family and freinds and fully intend to return.
The villa is suitable for all ages, you can choose whether you want to do lots of sight seeing or just chill by the pool and soak up the sun.

The villa has to be seen and enjoyed. Overall and excellant holiday in a beautiful villa in a perfect setting.

The real Crete.

  • 5 out of 5
Our (two grandparents, married daughter and 3 grand daughters) two week stay at Villa Katerina exceeded all our expectaions. First of all, the photgraphs of the villa, while informative, do not do it and the surroundings justice. The villa is located in the Cretan village of Spilia, which is an ideal spot to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Western Crete (Chania and Ag. Marina are only 30 minutes away if you need tourists) - local swimming holes on the Rodopou penninsula are only minutes away as are the excellent restaurants of Kolymbari. The villa itself is as immaculate as you could hope for and the hospitality of the owners has to be experienced to be believed. We would recommend this location to anyone who wants to experience the "real Crete" and fully intend to return. Our only real negative is that the owners would not consider our offer to buy!!

Spila is located on the edge of the plain of Chania 2 km from Kolymvari, 22km from Chania city-centre and 35 km from the airport of Chania. The village is near the junction with the national road which allows access to Chania in less than 20 minutes.
