Entering the gate, having on the right hand our beautiful garden with aromatic plants and trees, second on the left hand side we find the villa Eleni. Approaching the main entrance, a construction with glass and stainless steel grilles draws our attention, where the sunlight passes and creates a fantastic atmosphere in the bathroom located below. A spacious bathroom properly configured for two couples serves both bedrooms. Otherwise, the Epavlis Eleni is shaped like the Athina Epavlis.

Experience the Cretan beauty
In a traditional fishing village by the sea in the magnificent municipality of Chania, in an imposing amphitheatre place with breathtaking sea view and quiet, designed by one of the most famous Greek architects, professor Aristomenis Varoudakis, we created 2 villas, villa Eleni and villa Athina, both of them called Ravdoucha Epavlis.
Both names – given for the sake of the daughters of the owner – refer directly to ancient Greece, Helen, the bone of contention of the Trojan war and the goddess of wisdom in ancient Greece, the goddess Athena.
We choose a site in an unspoilt Mediterranean landscape, without interference of tourist and oriented natural beauty, we created the conditions for the relaxation of the visitors.
The Eleni and Athina villas are unique architectural masterpieces, surpassing in style the standard style, breaking the repetitive routine of holiday villas.
Located in Cape Spada, overlooking the bay of Kissamos and the forgotten castles of pirates in Gramvousa, causing yourself to daydream, as if suddenly appear ships and pirates ..
An ideal place for honeymooners, families with children and friendly couples.

The unique benefits in Ravdoucha Epavlis villas according to my opinion are:
- "Awarded as the leading private luxury villas in Greece” for 2015 from World Travel Awards!
- Totally Luxury, the whole villa's design, the furnitures, the electric devices and everything else have been chosen according the maximum possible quality!
- The breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and especially the sunset views! Staying for one hour in the balconies and you feel so relaxed.. like being on vacations for a week already...
- The 'away from it all' location but also being so close to everything! The villas are close to many sandy beaches, sightseeings to visit and Platanias area or Chania city where you can find all kind of services and shops!
- Great starting point for excursions, according to the location of the villas in order to visit the famous 'must go' beaches of Gramvousa - Balos, Falasarna or Elafonisi!
- Totally full privacy between the two villas!
Review copied from TripAdvisor:
Villa Eleni is a spectacular villa. We found it to be very comfortable and relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor spaces; there are four individual terrace/patio areas where you can eat, drink, relax, take a swim or enjoy the sunset. Inside, everything is very well laid out, convenient and high quality (including the soap/toiletries provided). Having a piano was a real bonus. It is a short drive from a small beach and a couple of fish tavernas. We visited the Waves on the Rocks taverna a few times and it was very good. For dinners we usually prepared something simple at home in order to take advantage of the sunset views looking out across the water towards the Gravmousa peninsula. The owner was very helpful and nice. We are looking forward to another trip hopefully next year. Also, we loved the swimming, hiking, food and culture of Crete.
One of the most beautiful and traditional places in Chania. The village is located on a hill with the memorable view and also is very close to the beach.
Ravdoucha took the name for the Greek name Ravdi, that means that the weather Ravdizei (affects a lot) all the area.
The villa is located 0.5 km away from the Ravdoucha Village centre, 1.3 km from the sea and about 4 km from the national road.
The nearby beach has some Greek fish tavernas, a traditional small Greek Church and also a small fishing port. In addition, the area is suitable for hiking and it is very safe.
Close Getaways from Ravdoucha
Ravdoucha is located near the towns of Kissamos and Kolymbari with banks, supermarkets, pharmacies, health centre, restaurants, beaches and harbour.
Shortly away is Platanias, the entertainment centre of the prefecture of Chania. Platanias is the heart of night-life in Chania and probably the best in Crete, with plenty of night clubs and restaurants of various nationalities. Here you can savour besides the traditional Greek cuisine and fresh fish, the Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Italian and international gourmet cuisine.
PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on Homeaway affiliate websites, depending on their categorized locations (each affiliate webiste has its own 'location categories').
