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

Spilia is a wonderfully rural village in Western Crete, sitting between the mountains and the sea. Within minutes of glorious beaches, lively tavernas and beautiful churches, Spilia apartments and villas offer everything you could hope for. Spilia means cave, named after the Ai-Yiannis Ermitis Cave, which offers magnificent views and is a must see site on any Spilia holiday.

Things to do in Spilia, Crete

Beaches always play a part in any Cretan holiday, and despite the wonderfully rural location of a Spilia villa, you are never far from the sea. Crete's most beautiful beaches, Falassarna and Elafonisi are both within an hour's drive, making a hire car almost essential. All the local beaches are safe and perfect for swimming, and you can have the sand between your toes within 10 minutes of leaving your Spilia villa.

Beach lovers will be particularly pleased with the beach at the placid, timeless village of Kolimbara a mile or two down the road. The pebble beach is always spacious, and there are a handful of tavernas in which to sit and watch the sea.

A Spilia apartment is a great base for exploring Western Crete. There are many delightful villages in the area to explore, as well as some beautiful countryside. There is a huge amount of countryside to explore on foot too, with the Samaria Gorges being a real favourite with walkers and climbers.

Places to visit from a villa in Spilia, Crete

The beautiful old town of Chania itself is well worth exploring from a self catering Spilia villa, whether you are visiting for a day or a week. Divided into two parts, Chania is one of the most beautiful places to explore in the whole of Crete. The narrow streets that surround the famous Venetian Harbour are a well known tourist favourite, but there are so many little shops, cafes and tavernas to find, that it is not only the more famous sights like the Dominican Monastery or Turkish Baths that will enthral visitors.

Weather in Spilia, Crete

There are very few times of year when visiting a Spilia doesn't promise a week of blazing sunshine. The Mediterranean climate means hot, dry summers, with daily temperatures routinely in the 30's (C), and winters that remain wonderfully mild for that undisturbed break.

Flights to Spilia, Crete

An escape to Spilia accommodation is an even bigger treat when you discover how easy a Spilia villa is to reach. There are regular flights from the UK direct to Chania Airport (CHQ) for the majority of the year. During the winter months, you can still escape to a Spilia property by taking a connecting flight from Athens (ATH) or a ferry service from Athens.

Manolis, and his family are the kindest hosts we've ever experienced. The villa is beautiful, it's clean, well equipped, well looked after and beautifully located. The pool is a very welcome treat after a long day exploring the beautiful island of Crete. We were welcomed with lots of lovely fresh fruit, eggs, honey, raki and yoghurt. Manolis gave us the lowdown on great places to explore and eat, every one was a winner and we were very warmly welcomed at all the restaurants/tavernas he suggested. We had visits from an owl, we regularly saw birds of prey flying and hunting over head. The villa's located near to the E65, main road and there's easy access to plenty of local shops for your sundries. All in all this was a beautiful experience and I can't recommend it enough. We've already booked another stay there next year.

Very spacious and comfortable and beautiful outdoors space. The views are very special and The outside terrace is fantastic for entertaining, eating outside, relaxing, reading, or just chilling out. Everything you need is in the villa, and we found the owners were extremely helpful. Local beaches are sandy, and sea is clear you can walk out for awhile before it gets too deep - great for kids. There are some really good local Taverna's/restaurants in Kissamos, and Platenos (about 10 mins drive away) so car hire is essential. Local bakers and mini market 5 mins away in car. The Villa is located in an unspoilt area of Crete - we would really love to return here again next year. It was a wonderful place to stay in a great location and we would highly recommend it.
