Beautiful Villa in the Cretan Countryside

5 of 5
This little villa is perfect for those who prefer a quiet, private getaway over a typical crowded resort holiday. You have the opportunity to experience life as a Cretan would, in the idyllic countryside. As you sit on the patio sipping a glass of wine or a raki, you can take in the view of the beautiful White Mountains, while the bells of grazing goats sound in the distance, and roosters and chickens wander onto the deck. Flanked by orange, lemon trees and a mulberry tree, fresh fruit is available for the picking- (and it's delicious!) The outside area, the deck and the view are the main attraction, in my opinion. Inside, the house is small but comfortable. We were there in June, and though the weather was hot, the house stayed quite cool; (there were fans available, but we didn't even need to use them). The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking, especially in comparison to other, similar places I've rented. When we first arrived, the house seemed slightly musty, but after airing it out a little while, that damp feeling went away- (they had gotten a lot of rain right before we came). Sheets and towels were supplied by the owner, and halfway into our stay, a maid came to clean the cottage and change the sheets and towels. The property is in the village of Aptera, which boasts some very interesting archeological sites. In the main part of town (within walking distance) there are several tavernas (restaurants), that serve very good food, and seem to be open most of the time. Although Aptera is a small village, it is not too far from the city of Chania. In addition, there is a wonderful beach in the next village over, which is very secluded and quite private. I highly recommend this place for people who don't want the typical resort holiday, who like to "get away from it all", who like to be around wildlife and beautiful scenery. It is probably necessary to have a car though at this place. Writing this review has made me very sad. The holiday was so nice, it just flew by. I kind of wish I were still there......

Superb villa, wonderful hosts!

5 of 5
The villa is lovely and not overlooked by anyone. The electronic front gate gives an increased sense of security, albeit that isn't required as this is one of the safest and friendliest islands that we have visited. The road outside doesn't have pavements and is quite fast, so we wouldn't advise walking anywhere, but that aside the location is good, only 10/15 minutes by cars from numerous restaurants etc. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, and Valia's cakes were very good. The villa is great for sunbathing and the beach was very quiet when we visited at the end of May / start of June. We would definitely return to the island and this villa.
