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.

Im Poolbereich gibt es nur ein Laufband (auf den Fotos waren es 2!). So mussten wir halt nacheinander laufen. Das war auch nicht weiter schlimm Punkt teilweise sind Fotos auf der Internetseite gezeigt von der anderen nicht vermieteten Haushälfte Komma welche die Hausherren selber bewohnen. Die vermietete Haushälfte ist auch auf den späteren Fotos zu sehen (aber deutlich weniger schön). Die Vermieterin wohnte zu dem Zeitpunkt als wir dort waren, nicht in dem Haus. So hatten wir das ganze Gelände für uns alleine. Der Geschirrspüler befindet sich in der Außenküche die wir nicht viel genutzt hatten, da tagsüber Wespen kam und das nachts sich mal die eine oder andere Grille hinzu gesellt hat. Wünschenswert wäre für unsere Zwecke ein Geschirrspüler im Haus gewesen. Der beheizbare Pool war 26 Grad warm ( nur von außen zu erreichen) . Der Ankunftstag wurde uns netterweise nicht berechnet und da während unseres Aufenthalts an zwei Tagen ein Fest stattfand in der kleinen Kapelle wurden uns weitere 50 € erlassen. Außerdem begrüßte uns die Besitzerin mit einem gefüllten Kühlschrank: Toast, Marmelade, Käse, Wurst, Milch, Wasser und Obst. Das war sehr nett. Auf dem Foto ist auch ein schön gedeckter Tisch abgebildet ( das hübsche Geschirr insbesondere die Weingläsern haben wir jedoch vermisst). Auf Nachfrage gab es aber zumindest eine Tischdecke. In unserer Haushälfte hat es insbesondere unter der Treppe ein wenig nach Urin gerochen. Die Putzfrau kam alle drei Tage und hat sauber gemacht. Die Matratzen waren sehr bequem ,mittleren Härtegrades. Die Fenster hatten Moskitoschutz. die Lage des Hauses ist ruhig. Es gibt ein Pferd ,dass Kinder aber nur in Begleitung eines Erwachsenen streicheln dürfen. Gefüttert werden darf es gar nicht. Im Garten wachsen Granatäpfel Kiwis Äpfel und Quitten; alles was man findet darf man verzehren. Das Haus ist strategisch gut gelegen die drittgrößte Stadt Rethymno (wunderschöne Altstadt) auf der Insel ist in 12 Minuten Fahrzeit zu erreichen . Es gibt eine kleine Bucht, wenn man aus dem Örtchen raus fährt oder 15 Min. auf der Hauptstraße links Richtung Chania (auch sehenswert), gibt es einen sehr langen Sandstrand, dort kann man für kleines Geld auch ganz gut essen. Ein Muss ist der 2,5 Stunden entfernte Strand Elafonissi...Ein Traum. Auch wenn unsere Haushälfte nicht die Schönste war.Der Urlaub war toll. Blueray Player vorhanden
