Perfect spot to relax and enjoy Crete

5 of 5
Arriving at Villa Sofas is like stepping back in time. Georgia and Dionysis have created a great little retreat here, with a lovely pool and sunbathing area as well as a beautiful shaded courtyard. Both G & D were very welcoming and nothing is too much for their guests. The Villa is very well appointed with everything you will need for a relaxing stay and a great bathroom! You won't want to get out of the gorgeous bed. There is a bus stop within 5 - 7 minutes walk and the buses are every half hour in both directions, 10 minutes to Platinias and about 30 to Chania depending on traffic. There is a mini market opposite the bus stop and a supermarket around 15 minutes walk so a car is not necessary here. The beach is also a short walk away if you can tear yourself away from the Villa. If you want to visit this area Villa Sofas is the perfect place to stay.

A great place to be !

5 of 5
We’ve spent 2 weeks in the villa with our 2 sons in July 2018. The villa is spacious, well-furnished and we felt at home during our stay. Everything was quiet and clean. The garden near the pool is a wonderful place to take a nap, read or just dream watching the amazing view. Our sons had a great time playing in the pool. The location is perfect as it was not far from ones of the most beautiful beaches in Crete (Balos, Elafonissi, Falassarba). And a day to walk through the Samaria Gorges is also possible from there. Arianna is a wonderful host : she’s here to help you when needed, gives you tips for places and restaurants. In conclusion, we definitely recommend the place.
