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!

Weather in Kefalas, Crete

Crete's Mediterranean climate means that Kefalas villas are in almost constant demand throughout the year. The summer lasts for many months, and you can be almost sure of sun from May right through to the end of September.

Lovely place to chill

5 of 5
We like to go to Crete in April to see the spring flowers, go walking and exploring while the weather is not too hot. Villa Helios proved to be a good choice as it is in the middle of beautiful countryside with every kind of ramble literally on the doorstep. The house has more space than we imagined and very well laid out. Views towards the White Mountains from the upstairs bedrooms are truly spectacular. We especially liked the colourful mediterrainean plants and shrubs growing around the house. Although just two of us this time, I can imagine it would be an excellent base for family holidays. Very good value, the owner (John) is a pleasure to deal with and responded to my questions very quickly. Will be returning with more friends sometime soon.

Lovely Family Holiday

4 of 5
Villa indeed was very spacious, lovely front and back sitting areas/bbq. Favorite of ours - bedroom balcony overlooking Souda Bay in the distance. Property very clean, starter pack in fridge much appreciated and all there that you needed. Wifi was a bonus, books and games on the side welcome entertainment for evenings. Walked down to village to eat at Takis Restaurant frequently - steep short-cut leads down to village (just behind garden). Supermarket nearby, bar and other restaurants in village or further down the hill in Almyrida. We would recommend property to small group of friends (4) or small family for a quiet holiday in lovely surrounding. Rental Car a must.

A perfect spot to holiday

5 of 5
This villa is exactly as pictured but this does not convey the ambience and the peace and quiet. The property was in excellent order when we arrived and the managers popped round to check all was well. We also met the owner which was a bonus. This villa offers a great range of kitchen equipment for self catering and is the only villa we have stayed in that had a range of very sharp knives. The private pool and terrace was a real bonus and was spotless. The information on their website and in the villa was really helpful. The beach at Almirida with its bars and and restaurants is very near and easily accessible. Don't miss the Pear tree which provides excellent fresh food. The instructions for travel and finding the villa were spot on. Our thanks to all for a lovely holiday!
