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.

Beautiful, unique and romantic

4 of 5
Villa Carpe diem is a beautiful unique place to have a wonderful break. Keith and Craig were very welcoming and gave us lots of recommendations of places to visit. The pool is lovely and private and the BBQ situated in the garden meant we ended up having more meals at the villa than we thought we would. Mostly due to the incredible sunsets! You need a car to explore but the beach is only 10 minutes drive away

Amazing!

5 of 5
Evelina's house was perfect for our family vacation to Chania. The house was well equipped, immaculate with a great terrace overlooking the sea. She was very responsive, informative and took care of all our needs. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a great house in great location to stay at Evelina's house.
