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.

Places to visit on holiday in Vrises, Greece

Despite being small in size, Vrises is well-linked when it comes to roads and public transport (though the use of a hire car is preferable). This allows you to discover the many traditional villages and towns nearby, including Georgioupolis (6km), which has a great beach and a number of tavernas, and Chania (30km), which has a beautiful Old Town that is home to many historic buildings.

Weather in Vrises, Greece

The location is excellent and views superb. 30 mins walk or 5 min drive from beach and restaurants in Kalyves. It is serene and relaxing and well equipped for self catering. Only about 30 mins from airport but be sure to either print the directions or be sure your Google maps / data will work specially if a late arriving flight. Kalyves in April was quiet which suited us well - not for u if a disco fiend. Some good walks accessible within 20-50 minutes drive. Wed certainly come again.

Wir waren mit Freunden unterwegs um zu entspannen: wir haben erreicht was wir wollten und uns grossartig erholt! Schade, dass der Strand nicht noch näher an der Villa war. Wir empfehlen die Villa gerne weiter!
