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.

FANTASTIC!!!

5 of 5
Our family of 4 visited Villa Elvina in Crete over the Easter break in April 2017. We loved the accomodations: large bright spaces both indoor and outdoors, all the amenities you need and above all super clean. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the owner Eleftheria and her mom who had prepared a lovely meal for us. What an unexpected treat! Eleftheria delivered top notch service during our stay and made wonderful recomendations for restaurants and places to visit. She has flawless taste and will make sure that your stay is comfortable. In terms of location, the villa is conveniently located for visits to at least 3 Top listed beaches in Greece. Chania and Rethmyno are also easily accessible for day trips. Our stay at Villa Elvina was a fantastic experience we will remember for a very long time.

A Week in Paradise

5 of 5
Thank you so very much to our wonderful hosts Georgia and Dennis. The villa is stunning, a real home from home. Private, peaceful and luxurious. The owners have renovated the villa with taste and charm, the perfect mix of modern with traditional vernacular style. The villa is spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a truly relaxing break. We loved sitting in the sunshine on the enormous rooftop terrace during the day. In the evenings we lit the open fire and ate in the kitchen dining room, very romantic. The bed was so very comfy with the softest linens. Fluffy towels provided for the bathroom and for the pool. It was too cold to swim but we sat by the pool and dipped our legs. Pool is a really good size, clean and very inviting. The bathrooms are designed with quality and taste, with the most fabulous showers...we didnt want to get out! Georgia and Dennis were wonderful hosts, they had thought of everything. A fully stocked kitchen with herbs and spices, condiments, sauces. They left us fruit, vegetables, wines, chocolate, bread, cheese even candles ...amazing hospitality! They had thought of everything. Sunlotions, doedorant, fly spray, toothpaste, toilet rolls, ....so well planned. The villa is about a 30 minute drive from the airport, easy to find but we arrived late and lost our way in the dark so rang Dennis and he came out to find us...nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people. Mini markets, beach and restaurants a five minute drive away, perfectly placed close to amenities whilst being peaceful and quiet. Nothing to fault at all .....6 stars! We are looking forward to returning soon, Thank you so very much Georgia and Dennis for making our stay so fabulous, you are the perfect hosts, kisses for Baby the cat. Much love from Chrissie and Pete. xxx
