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.

If you are looking for an authentic trip to Crete, this is the place for you. If you are lucky and it’s still available, our recommendation is to book immediately. After reading the great reviews our expectations were high – but they were far exceeded. The villa and area are stunning, but it is really the people that make this place magical. Manolis, the house owner, is kindhearted, knowledgeable and respectful and he made us feel like friends right from the start. Upon arrival, Manolis welcomed us at the house and took some good time to introduce us to the house, give suggestions on dinner locations for the night and first excursion possibilities. We appreciated this highly! We never felt pushed to follow any of the suggestions, but we were always glad when we did, as the tips are spot on. Every few days Manolis would check in on us and make sure that we had a great time and everything we needed. He also prepared a five-page document giving tips on places to see and where to eat. For us this was very handy, as it took the pressure of researching ourselves and it had a good mix of popular highlights in the region and off-the-beaten path destinations. We visited in October and were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed 14 days of sunshine with temperatures around 25 degrees. As we visited in the off-season, we basically had the beautiful beaches at Balos, Elafonissos and Phalasarna to ourselves. A swim in the pool or ocean was extremely enjoyable and we did so every day. The region is beautiful with diverse beaches, the most spectacular olive groves as far as the eye can see, gorgeous mountains and gorges and the most welcoming and friendly people you can imagine. We also loved to stay at the villa. Especially the morning and early afternoon are spectacular; you see the sun coming up behind the white mountains and the view over the olive groves down to the beaches of Kolymbari is breathtaking. We spent hours gazing, looking at the birds of prey circling in the air over the hundreds of olives trees surrounding the villa. The villa has a traditional feel and is very homely, equipped with everything you may need or want. The housekeeper Eleni comes twice a week and makes sure that the house is spotless clean. She is very friendly and took extremely good care of us. Our favorite meals were with Petros in Vassilopoulo (I could have eaten here every day, but they are only open in the weekends during off-season), the home-cooked

We found the Cottage ideal as a base both for hanging out and exploring Western Crete. Bakery and general store just a short walk away. The hosts were both welcoming and very generous with the garden produce. Where else does it rain walnuts?
