Fantastic villa - everything we needed for a great stay

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 3 who wanted a relaxing time in our own space at our own pace, this villa was a fantastic find.

The villa is spacious and very well decorated. There really are so many different spaces to sit and relax, eat drink - in the sun or shade, by the pool or inside under the aircon. Each space has its own furniture, so no need to worry about moving stuff around. The photos and description on the HomeAway website really do the place full justice, it's a very impressive, spacious and nicely decorated property.

All facilities were modern and in full working order - large fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, filter coffee machine, air con., and the kitchen was well equipped with all pots, pans, glasses, crockery, cutlery & utensils we would ever need.

The pool was large enough and deep enough to allow us all to get some exercise, and the pool cleaning lady was around working quietly even before we woke up!

The beds were comfortable with lovely crisp clean bed linen, while face, bath and pool towels were all provided - all to a 4 star hotel standard of cleanliness. All furniture was immaculate and comfortable. There are no separate bedrooms and the beds are located at opposite ends of the mezzanine floor. I'd suggest that this property would not suit 2 couples, but definitely suits a family.

Katarina the owner was incredibly helpful and friendly - she knew we were arriving(VERY) late at night, but still stayed on to welcome us, show us around and give us some food after our long day of (easyjet) travel.

The location of the villa was perfect for us - away from main roads, close enough to walk (and run) to the little bustling town of Kalives in one direction, a supermarket, beach hotels and restaurants, and the main highway to Souda & Chania the other. Local beaches were completely clean and accessible by foot. We had a car for the week, but really only used it to get to/from the airport, the bigger shopping trips and an amazing road trip to the Samaria Gorge.

The Cretans were friendly and helpful, and neighbours were quiet and considerate - we were probably the noisiest family around! Even the pretty kittens who live in the surrounding olive groves (we named them Pepsi and Shirley) were quiet and friendly - if a little shy.

All in all we would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to unwind and relax, and will seriously consider returning in the near future.

Kalives is a coastal village, located at the entrance of Souda Bay, 17km away from the city of Chania. It belongs to Apokoronas region, the greenest and most unspoiled area of the Prefecture of Chania. The village is bound on one side by the sea and on the other side by low hills with dense vegetation.

The village is divided into two parts; the old and the new one. The old village consists of traditional stone houses built on each side of the main road, opening directly on to it, on narrow streets and on pedestrian paths. The new village has more modern structures. The village has expanded, but still you can go everywhere on foot.

A sandy, shallow and organized beach with blue flag and a lifeguard runs along the east side of the village. The waters are deep blue and crystal clear. The beach is hidden behind trees and benches are placed in their shadow. For the lovers of water’s sports there is a water sport centre. The beach ends to a quaint fishing port. There are several taverns and restaurants across the seashore and to the village square with the four hundred years old pine tree, where you can taste local specialties and fresh fish.

Kalives is an ideal choice if you are looking for peaceful and relaxing vacations by the sea. There are few traditional coffee shops – kafenio in Greek - and some music-cafe-bars, but no big clubs or music bars. The beautiful old part of the village with the narrow streets and the tiled houses full of roses and jasmines is the perfect place for those who love walking. The streets lead to the old Byzantine church of Holly Mary with the nice forecourt and ancient frescoes.

The village is also an excellent starting point for excursions to the surrounding area. Some of the worth seeing neighbour villages are Almirida, a maritime village with two sandy and shallow organized beaches, Plaka, an unspoiled village renowned for its taverns - all set around the village square - and their excellent home-made food, Vamos, the capital of the region and a traditional mountain village and Gavalochori with the renovated in traditional style houses.
