Make a holiday rental home or villa in Vrises, Greece your home away from home

The historic village of Vrises in Crete, (also sometimes spelt ‘Vrisses’) is situated 30km south-east of Chania, and is the ideal destination for those seeking a slice of the traditional Greek lifestyle. One of many sparsely populated villages in the near vicinity, Vrises is largely tourist free, allowing you to enjoy the unspoilt scenery and uncrowded attractions that make this peaceful destination such a great holiday rental option.

Things to do in Vrises, Greece

Vrises is a great location to enjoy walks and hikes amongst stunning and unspoilt scenery. The key landmark in the area is a twin peak hill which rises high above the village, and is a site of major archaeological interest, having being the home of a 16th Century post-Minoan settlement. The name Vrises translates as ‘fountains’, and was given due to the many springs that can also be spotted in the area.

Vrises has a respectable amount of amenities such as a bakery, supermarket and mini-markets, many of which are family run businesses. A suggestion is to ‘do as the locals do’, and have all of your shopping and small tasks finished by midday, then spend the afternoon relaxing and taking in the scenery with plenty of local food and wine, with the local specialities being yoghurt and goats cheese.

Relaxing can be done from the comfort of your holiday rental accommodation in Vrises or on the banks of one of the several rivers that flow through the village, where you will be shaded by the many large plane trees. This is also where many of the village tavernas are based, so you will not have far to walk when you need to top-up or something extra to nibble on.

Kathy and Chris could not have been more friendly or helpful what wonderful hosts. We found the apartment very clean and comfortable, especiallly the sofa and the bed and the kitchen was a bonus as we like to self cater as well as eat out. The position of the apartment afforded wonderful views of the mountains and the valley and beautiful sunrises. It was very convenient for shops, tavernas and beaches. The local taverna next to the pharmacy in Agio Pantes served excellent fresh food just 5 minute drive. Would recommend the apartment for a short or long stay holiday.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Various seating areas and patios to take advantage of sun/shade throughout the day. Lovely big infinity pool with great views & comfy bed to sleep at night. Not to far from Kalyves far shopping, eating and bars etc. We would definitely would recommend this villa to somebody who doesn't do crowds and wants total peace and seclusion. The only 2 negatives we encountered was firstly the long track leading to the villa needed strimming as the heavy thistles etc were the scratching the hire car every time we used the track. The other negative was that there were several days during our stay when there was an unbearable stench which we can only assume was the villa's cesspit which meant we could not use the patio outside the master bedroom and had to keep the bedroom's doors and windows closed. Another small niggle we had was the ants but this could be easily rectified by the owner leaving plastic storage boxes for food so the ants can't get in.
