The villa itself stands at a very idyllic point, at the top of a hill, without anything interrupting the view of the immense sea which is accessible through a private path, thus imparting you a sense of freedom and calmness. The whole scenery is so picturesque and of such a unique beauty that will enchant you from the first sight.

At close distance from the villa, you will find three of the best beaches of the northern coastline. It takes two minutes by car from the small and quiet bay of Tersanas, six minutes from Kalathas beach and four minutes from Stavros beach.

The villa consists of seven bedrooms the four of which with en-suited bathrooms, one gym with its own bathroom, one large kitchen and two living rooms, and two more bathrooms. Every room of the villa has a satellite, plasma screen TV, whereas the living room near the kitchen and the one at the ground floor have two 3D televisions. This living room is equipped with a home cinema, a sound system, a game console and a refrigerator which can also be used as a mini-bar and which will be refilled daily. Outside, there is a shaded pavilion where you will enjoy eating and drinking during the day and a barbecue in case you want to prepare an easy meal. There is a large, 73sq.m. infinity pool as well as a 3×3 jacuzzi.Inside the territory of the villa there is plenty of space for five to six cars to park.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This villa was perfect for us!! We were a group of 10 friends and family from 10-40ish years old. The villa has a room for everyone and almost every bedroom has an attached bathroom. We slept in the upstairs master which has a gorgeous view of the Med. The weather wasn't perfect when we were there...it was rainy and windy for the first 4 days but that was ok because we were out and about exploring the island. Such great service from Mary and her husband. We had yummy greek treats waiting for us when we arrived after a very trying travel experience. We had a wonderful woman who came and cleaned the villa from top to bottom EVERY DAY!! I loved being pampered in paradise and absolutely loved this villa!! Rent a car for sure!! Go to Pirates at Stavros Beach and Marathi Beach restaurant....ask for the salmon pasta, you will not be disappointed!!

Fantastic luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night and Ari, the manager, was there to greet us and to tell us about the house and surrounding area. The table was laden with Cretan delicacies and enough food to keep us going for a few days, which was lovely. The villa is in a stunning position, overlooking the sea and in a safe part of the island. Whilst we were there, the owners, Mary and Dimitri were very attentive and came to cook us a delicious Cretan breakfast, called a doctor out to us when one of our party was ill, and also came to give us a delicious farewell drink before we left which was a lovely touch. The cleaners came every day and were so friendly and discreet - we felt very well looked after and nothing was too much trouble.

The villa itself is in a beautiful position and we all had our own bedroom with air conditioning which was a real treat. there was a fabulous speaker which we used to play music and the pool and jacuzzi were beautiful - we paid to have the pool heated as it was the beginning of the season. The property was very well maintained and we had asked about nespresso coffee machines and they had provided us with 2 and some capsules which was very kind! Ari even had to come and collect the house key from the airport at the end of our stay and was so relaxed about it, which was a huge relief!

The villa is only 20 minutes from the airport and from Chania, which we visited and loved. WE also ate out in a few tavernas, The Sunset in Stavros which was delicious and had a pretty beach and another local one in Tersanus. The team also organised a safari trip where we went off road in the mountains and over to the gorge, sampling some wine in a local winery on the way - great fun and bespokely tailored to our needs. We also enjoyed a trip to a local monastery which is a must see. All in all this was a fabulous villa run very professionally and we can't recommend it more highly. Thank you to you all for making our stay such fun.

“Stunning view, peace, relaxation "

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa in April with our extended family and really liked it there. The villa easily fits 10 - 14 people; the kitchen is well-equipped. What we really appreciated: the cleaning service by two friendly young women who came every day except Sunday, the manager who looked after the house to make sure everything was to our satisfaction, and when we arrived at night, the table was laid with delicious Cretan food.

Also in the organizing process I felt well taken care of by Ariadne Kallergi who answered all my questions and was always ready to give tips and advice. And it was nice to meet her in person later.

Tip for future guests: you must be flexible as far as storage capacity in one bedroom (and the en suite bathroom of the master bedroom) is concerned. But on holiday that should not be a problem..:-)

We would definitely recommend this villa and also "Authentic Crete" villa specialists in particular for a holiday in this area of Crete.

We rented the house for my 60:th birthday (July 14), I brought my whole family. All in all we were 12 people in the house, ranging from 15 to my mothers 86 years of age. I thought I should come up with som "constructive criticism" to balance the earlier Reviews but realise that I cannot, I just miss the place so much. And we did have a few mishaps, for instance the taxi drivers had difficulties in finding the house, it lacks a proper "street adress", and my birthday started at 9 o'clock in the morning with an unannounced area maintainence power brake for 5 hours...That was a cliffhanger.

But nothing that the wonderful owners could be blamed for. They came by one morning and made us all the best greek brunch you can imagine.

No, I just havent accepted yet that we actually have left this paradise house. Everything feels so bleak returning back home.

My wife had one small "point of improvement" to make - it is about the balcony outside the combined kitchen/living room: It is the natural and perfect place to have your tranquil breakfast (people tend to get up at different times) or a drink before dinner in the evening, but the balcony lacks furniture completely. So we brought out the sturdy but uncomfy kitchen table chairs every morning. There are so many comfortable and rather cheap garden/balcony furniture to buy nowadays, so that would be a much appreciated investment, I think.

But all the same, this is a pure paradise house, as I said, it is hard to overcome that we are not there anymore.

My heart bleeds...

Best wishes from us Naslunds in Uppsala/Stockholm/Sundsvall.

Zeer ruime woning met oa vele slaapkamers en douches. Schitterende ligging met uitzicht op zee liggend in een baai. Rondom het huis is alles prachtig verzorgd met planten, bloemen tegelwerk.

Zwembad met rondom genoeg ligstoelen om te relexen/zonnen.

Iedere dag werd huis schoongemaakt, bedden opgemaakt, voorzien van schone lakens en badlakens.

Al met al , mede door ook nog het prachtige weer, was het een geweldige vakantie.

Akrotiri is an area for nature experiences and exciting hikes in all areas.Lovely ravines in the mountains lead into beautiful small coves.There are several caves with stalagmites and stalactites in fascinating shapes. Archaeological discoveries indicate that in antiquity these caves were places of sacred worship and refuge from pirates.While parts of the Akrotiri coast are cliffs, there are many beautiful beaches, most of them well protected by bays and not affected by the “meltemia”(northern summer winds).Some of these are Stavros the beach where the movie Zorba was filmed), Kalathas, Tersanas, and Marathi.All are well kept and clean, and are awarded the European Blue Flag annually.

There are also three small islets very close to the coast.The most important is the islet of Souda with a Venetian fortress and a light house.

The views from most parts of Akrotiri are unique;the White Mountains,Souda Bay with the area of Apokoronas beyond,the sea,the town of Chania,the north coast and the distant peninsulas of Rodopou and Gramvoussa can all be seen from Akrotiri.In addition there are views to the countryside known for its fertile land and large areas of olive groves and vineyards.

Its dry climate combined with the sea breeze forms an ideal environment not only for residents but also for the fruit and vegetables produced which are renowned for their high quality and taste.

Kounoupidiana serves as the “centre” of Akrotiri and offers a good selection of shops,restaurants and other services.The road network is good and with frequent bus service to Chania.

Akrotiri is only ten to twenty minutes by car from Chania and ten minutes from the international airport.With its picturesque Venetian harbour and charming historical town,Chania,seeped in culture,is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece.

Akrotiri is also known as the Holy Mountain of Crete due to its many churches and monasteries.Some of the most famous are the monasteries of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity)built in the 17th century and the Monastery of Gouvernetou of the 16th century. The Monastery of St. John the Hermit,dating back to the 6th or 7th century,is found within a steep ravine where one may arrive by stepping down 385 steps.The Catholicon of this Monastery which is built into the rocks of the mountain side is considered the first monastery built on Crete.


• Kalathas

• Porofarago

• Agiofarago

• Agios Antonios

• Poro Mavre


• Lera /Stavros area,used from Neolithic times.Evidence exists of its use as a sanctuary from the end of the Bronze Period through all the Greek periods.

• Arkalospilio /3km from the M.Gouvernetou

• Aherospilio & Agios Ioannis / near M.Katholiko

• Arkoudospilio,the cave of the Bear or of The Virgin Mary Arkoudiotissa,close to the monastery of Gouverneto in Akrotiri, with the stalagmite which resembles a bear,the reservoir with the 'holy water' - a result of a drip - and the small church which is dedicated to the Ypapanti are certainly worth a visit.A local legend says that Virgin Mary(there is a chapel dedicated to the Virgin inside the cave)turned the bear to stone after she caught it drinking the monks' water.Archaeologists claim that in antiquity the cave was a shrine to Artemis,who was transformed into the shape of a bear.

• Koumarospilio


• Kalathas

• Agios Onoufrios

• Tersanas & Maherida

• Stavros

• Marathi

Remains of the ancient city of Minoa can be seen upon arrival to the beautiful beach of Marathi.Minoa was one of the two harbours of the powerful city-state of Aptera during Greek times.It dominated the entrance to the protected bay of Souda. Excavations have revealed part of its harbour and some buildings dating from the second century A.D.

Seaside Villages

Tersanas is a small seaside village with a lovely,sheltered sandy beach.There are a few tavernas and small supermarket but within 1km village Chorafakia offers an additional variety of tavernas,shops and supermarkets.The area enjoys stunning views towards Hania and the Aegean sea and the surroundings are perfect for biking,walking and site seeing as in Akrotiri there are two medieval monasteries,the famous Venizelos Graves,small fishing villages and many sandy beaches.Seafood and fish is excellent in this area,which is famous for seafood tavernas to local people as well as visitors of the region.Akrotiri is not yet greatly developed as a tourist resort,so although it does have all facilities,amenities and natural beauty,it is still a quiet and unspoilt area. Perfect for couples & families with children of all ages,as all beaches have easy proximity,golden soft sand and are sheltered and shallow,thus safe for everyone.Stavros has an excellent sheltered sandy beach.Marathi,a wonderful beach and seaside small village where seafood is unbeatable! Kalathas,a beautiful sandy beach,perfect for snorkelling!
