About the property

2-bedroom, 75-m² flat that sleeps 5 on the ground floor with pool

Villa Amphityonis is located in the small charming village of Tsivaras in the green zone called Apokoronas, around 1.8 km from 2 seaside resorts: Kalives and Almirida. Part of the village is built on and set against 2 hills where the villa is located. It is surrounded by some houses. This geographical location allows us to enjoy a beautiful landscape composed of the White Mountains on your left and the Souda Bay on your right.

On the main road, you will find a kafenio where you can do some grocery shops and quench your thirst under the attentive and benevolent watch of its owners. Beyond the village, towards Vamos, there is an olive oil factory.

The villa set on 1000-m² grounds embellished with olive, orange, lemon and peach trees, punicas, and of course bougainvillea and oleanders. It is divided into 2 separate accommodations: the owners on the first floor inhabit 1 and the other, yours, is on the garden level and equipped to sleep up to 5 persons.

The flat is at your disposal and opens onto a terrace covered by its pergola that leads directly to the pool. The 50-m² pool is shared with owners. It is cleaned and checked every week by a person that comes early in the morning. The lighting of the pool is automatic. The pool is lit from 9.00 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. 4 deckchairs and 2 parasols are at your disposal.

The main room is around 30-m². It is composed of a dining area with a round table and 5 chairs.

The fitted kitchen features: a dishwasher, a 4-ring gas cooker, an electric oven, a microwave, a fridge/freezer, crockery, kitchen utensils, a coffee machine, a toaster, and a kettle.

The relaxation area houses 2 white sofa, a wall-mounted flat screen television with a satellite receiver, a CD/DVD player, and Wi-Fi.

The sleeping area is composed of the 14-m² bedroom “Thalassa” with 140 cm bed and French windows opening onto the pool, and the 18-m² bedroom “Portokaleonas” with 3 x 90 cm beds. This bedroom can be organised differently according to your needs with 180 cm bed and 90 cm bed.

Each bedroom has a dressing table, a stool, a mirror, a bedside table, and a large wall-mounted cupboard. All windows and French windows have mosquito nets and mechanical rolling shutters.

The shower room has a shower, a washbasin with mirror cabinet, a toilet, a washing machine, an ironing board, and an iron.

At your disposal in the garden under the pergola: garden furniture with table and 6 chairs covered with cushions, barbecue with electric roasting spit, 2 heated airers with clothes lines, and clothes pins.

Please do not hesitate to gather thyme, bay, savoury, mint, rosemary and the abundant basil to flavour your dishes. The flower watering system is automatic.

Each room of the accommodation is air-conditioned

Upon arrival, we will give you a set of keys that you will give back to us upon departure

A check-in inventory will be carried out. Sheets, tea towels, and bath towels are provided and changed weekly. Cleaning can be done upon request.

You will find a welcome basket with Cretan delicacies

Upon departure, you can do your own final clean, should you desire. Otherwise, we will ask you for € 50 for extra costs per week. A checkout inventory is carried out when you return the keys.

We are happy to welcome you to part of our dream house that we loved as soon as we saw it during a trip in Crete. It gave us the desire to stay longer.

Now we would like to share it with others too. It is your turn to discover the secrets of the benefits of this wonderful island.

We wish you a pleasant stay and we remain at your disposal if necessary.

About Marie and Patrick Legras

We live some of the time in Nantes, in Tsivaras, and elsewhere! We love to travel, communicate, meet people, and share.

Marie and Patrick Legras purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Marie and Patrick Legras chose Chania area

We fell in love with Crete as it satisfies our desire of walking, sea, relaxation, and above all Cretan people are very nice and always ready to help with a smile. The cherry on the cake is the food: oil, feta, olive, slouvaki, bouraki, courgette flower, tatsiki, dakos, etc.

Traumhafte Ferienwohnung für Familien

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung hat unsere (Familie mit 2 kleinen KIndern 3+5) Erwartungen übertroffen. Der erste Kontakt mit den Vermietern Marie und Patrick war schnell, unkompliziert und wir haben vor Ort einen tollen Empfang gehabt. Da die sehr netten Vermieter anwesend waren, konnten wir jederzeit mit Fragen auf sie zukommen und haben tolle Ausflugstipps erhalten. Die Wohnung ist in einem sehr guten Zustand und absolut gepflegt. Die Zimmer sind sauber und geräumig. Die Küche hat alles was man braucht. Das Highlight ist ganz klar die tolle Terasse mit dem schönen Pool und die herrliche Aussicht auf die Berge und das Hinterland. Unsere Kinder liebten den Pool, vor allem unser kleiner "Nichtschwimmer" freute sich über den integrierten Kinderbereich. Marie und Patrick hatten für unsere Kinder auch Spielzeug parat, was für große Freude gesorgt hat. Die Lage ist sehr günstig, da man von hier viele Ausflüge machen kann und zwei schöne Badeorte direkt vor der Tür hat. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder. Liebe Grüße Katrin, Frank, Amelie und Niklas

Magnifique Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Merci beaucoup à Patrick et Marie. Nos vacances ont tout simplement été parfaite en partie grâce à eux!

La villas est tout simplement magnifique, la description de l'annonce et les photos sont exactement ceux que nous avons eu le plaisir d'avoir lors de notre arrivée.

Je n'ai pas eu la chance de rencontrer Mr LEGRAS en personne mais il a tout fait pour que mes vacances se passent au mieux.

Comme quoi il existe encore des personnes en qui on peut faire totalement confiance pour une location de vacances.

Je reviendrai à coup sure chez Patrick si je reviens en Crète.

Encore merci à eux.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances chez Patrick et Marie. Ils nous ont ete de bons conseils tant pour les plages, visites que les restaurants, et sont toujours soucieux de notre bien être.

Concernant la location, elle est très bien située, bien équipée (nous n'avons manqué de rien) et nous avons ou profiter de la grande terrasse ainsi que la piscine.

Il n'y a rien a redire, nous recommandons cette location !

Location vraiment conforme au descriptif. Tout en étant discrets, les propriétaires Marie et Patrick sont vraiment à l'écoute et non avares de renseignements sur les lieux à visiter, les restaurants... Toujours soucieux de notre bien-être

Nous sommes arrivés dans la nuit et attentionnés, ils ont même pensé à prévoir notre petit déjeuner.

Tout en étant au calme, nous sommes prêts des commodités. Belle vue sur la montagne et grande piscine très agréable dans un très joli jardin.

De plus, la location est idéalement située. Que du bonheur !
