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 mild Mediterranean climate of Crete means Vrises experiences a summer average temperature of 26C, though this can reach well above 30C on the sunniest of days. Rainfall is low during this period. Winter temperatures are mild with increased rainfall.

Flights to Vrises, Greece

The property was in a lovely setting. The villa was very spacious and well equipped.

The owner’s, George and Penelope we’re very welcoming. Our neighbours were really lovely too. The village life we stepped into made our holiday feel exceptional and very memorable. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely quiet villa & private pool in rural Crete

5 of 5
Villa Helios lived up to it's name, being well appointed to bask in sunshine during our stay. It's an extremely well set out villa with 4 double bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining/lounge area & cosy kitchen and convivially coped very well with 7 busy adults. The outside space with verandah, own swimming pool, barbecue area etc., is fantastic, and also quiet, being screened from the road and other (not too nearby) villas by beautiful long established olive trees. It's a really, really lovely place to stay, within easy walk of local village, cafes, shops etc., - we will certainly return soon!
