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.

We had the most enjoyable stay in November 2016. Everything is immaculate, it felt like we were the first people to ever stay there. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay and the host left us some much appreciated goodies including traditional baked goods, water, beer, fruit and muesli! The view and outside space was our favourite part, the upstairs terrace is huge - we didn't use it much as we spent most of our time on the downstairs terrace by the pool. The property has clear views to the sea and feels completely private. The village itself is small and quiet but very friendly and nice for an afternoon walk. You will need a car If you want to explore further. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning!

The peace was lovely, with very few people around we mostly had the beach to ourselves. The family run restaurant next door was great, the food was delicious and the family were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely return to the villa and have in fact already discussed our return. The one criticism we had was it would have been nice to have been given some basics like soap washing powder, tea and coffee and also things like the kettle could have been of better quality. However it has not changed our discussion in our rating because the villa was just what we wanted.

Large bedrooms, well equiped kitchen and the huge living room and nice terrace have a wonderful view to the white mountains. The pool is large and well maintained and behind (one terrace below) is even a nice garden where our kids loved to play. We were with 3 young children (5,4 and2) and it was very easy to close the stairs to the swimming pool with a chair, so our youngsters could not enter the pool unguided. That felt very safe. Mrs Frosso came by every day to maintain the house. She is really Nice, speaks English and knows a lot of the environment. The house is situated in a litlle village with a bakery, a few little supermarkets and Some Nice restaurants. It is a little but charming and friendly village. Nearby in Almyrida is a Nice beach (safe for little Children). I really can recommend this beautiful house!
