Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Kefalas, Crete your home away from home

Kefalas is a lovely village set in the hills of Crete's mountainous Chania region. Located high on a ridge, there are magnificent views over the sea, despite being 15km inland. The views are spectacular, with many of the luxury villas in Kefalas taking full advantage. A self catering Kefalas villa is the perfect option for anyone wanting to get away from it all yet have it all at their finger tips should you want it.

Things to do in Kefalas, Crete

It is only a 15km drive down to the famous sand beaches of Georgioupolis and Almirida from a Kefalas villa, and the beaches will most likely take a good portion of your Kefalas holiday during the summer months. These are both great swimming beaches which stretch far round the coast.

However, for those that would like more than a week on the beach, there is a huge amount of choice too. Kefalas not only makes a fantastic place to simply relax, but it also acts as a fantastic base for exploration. The historic town of Chania can be reached by car in 45 minutes, and the Old Town is certainly worth exploring.

The countryside is wonderfully accessible from a Kefalas villa. Holidays in Kefalas are hugely popular with nature lovers and hikers almost throughout the year. The villages along this coast are blissfully quiet, and there are always fantastic little cafes and tavernas in which to recuperate for a moment!

Beautiful home in a stunning setting

5 of 5
Home 1891could not be more perfect. A stunningly restored and tastefully modernised village house in a beautiful position within a traditional Cretan hilltop village, enjoying panoramic views to the sea and along the coast towards Rethymno. The owner Alexandra gave us the warmest of welcomes and could not have been more helpful. Apart from the fact that the house is very well equipped and beautifully maintained, Alexandra had also provided fresh tomatoes, local yogurt , honey and olive oil, together with homemade goodies, including home baked biscuits, muesli and her mother's delicious cheese pies. While the house itself is very special, with all the warmth and charm of a much loved family home, there is also lots to do and see in the surrounding area. There are plenty of good tavernas nearby, an amazing bakery in Vamos and it is within easy striking distance of Chania itself. But, when the sun shines, you will find it very difficult to tear yourself away from the fantastic terrace and infinity pool! We will definitely be back!

Lovely villa for our family vacation. Breathtaking views.

5 of 5
This is a lovely villa well positioned for visiting this part of crete, Rethymno & Georgiopolis are only 20 minutes away. The views from the villa are absolutely amazing. Breathtaking. The villa owner made us very welcome throughout our stay, baking us a cake .. and even brought us eggs and vegetables. Such lovely people. The villa is peaceful, totally private, and has panaramic views that really do take your breath away.
