Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The place is located in a lovely place between the woods and nature.

On our arrival we received a very warm welcome from the owners.

The kitchen was full with food products and very well equipped . No need to bring anything. The house was furnished in high standarts.

10 minutes from the beach.

Pantelis and Dina, thank you for all.

Holiday in Crete

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 including, three young adults / old teenagers all had a wonderful holiday at the Villa Kalamitsi.

The property is lovely and is at least as good as the description provided on the website. It has been well designed and built with lots of thought gone into the outside areas as well as inside, which really helped everyone relax and have such a good break.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. We were met with fresh vegetables, a lovely home cooked meal for our first evening and sufficient basics to have kept us going had we arrived too late to have shopped.

The property is lovely and quiet with good views across the valley to the local village and beyond to the hills. The local beach met people's needs though was nothing special and we tended to drive to those recommended in the guide we found in the house. Lake Kournas was 25 mins away by car and was really popular with us for renting a pedalo and fresh water swimming.

The historic sites were within driving range albeit a longish day out. Chania offers day trips in a boat or yacht which we thoroughly enjoyed.

On the whole a lovely house, well situated, with a variety of activities within reach by car. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend the house as a location for a relaxing and quiet holiday on Crete.

heavenly, a beautiful house in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a home away from home. The owners are a wonderful couple, and nothing is too much for them. Having been guided into the villa from the National Road at Georgioupoli, by the owner travelling in convoy, we had a home cooked meal waiting for us in the oven when we arrived and a stacked fridge, all totally unexpected. This was followed up with other treats, all home made, throughout our stay whenever they popped in for pool maintenance or cleaning.

Such was their company that we invited the owners to dinner one evening, and had a lovely time sat out by the BBQ eating, drinking and chatting for some hours.

We did our bit to keep this picturesque villa looking a pretty as it does by watering the plants each evening - we felt it only right as otherwise so much could have died, and Crete has been suffering from a prolonged dry period.

Lazy days by the pool, relaxing and comfortable evenings listening to the night wildlife, watching the bats, star gazing and enjoying the company of our family made this the perfect holiday. We even got to watch some of the Olympics when we felt like a change of pace in the evening. The resident cat had kittens - which we fed, and wanted to bring home with us - just helped make this villa feel even more homely.

A car is a must - the local taverna is the other side of the valley, and to get out for shopping is a drive. The nearest neighbour is about 500m up the track. The taverna serves a very limited menu, but the food is delicious and cheap. It was so good we went there 3 times in our 2 weeks out there. It is a real locals place, and we were the only tourists there, abd were made to feel very welcome.

Without doubt, we will be back.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is quite ideal for anyone seeking a peaceful and relaxing holiday in Crete. It is centrally located to several sites and attractions. So right off, it is perfect in location. The property is gated and fenced in an olive grove about 1km from town. We felt safe and secure the entire time. We stayed in the winter so the pool was closed. However, in the summer, I can only imagine that swimming in the pool would be relaxing and breathtaking. The views from the villa are spectacular. The villa itself is perfect. The bedrooms are located right off the main living area. It is perfect for two families with a total of four kids. The kitchen had everything and anything that you could think of. The laundry was perfect. The bathroom facilities were modern and quite exquisite. There were plenty of towels and sheets. The living room was cozy with a fire place and plenty of seating. The dining room was right next to the kitchen for a wonderful eat in kitchen feel. The porch was a wrap around and provided several different eating locations. I cannot think of any suggestion or compliant. The landlords were kind and very welcoming. Upon our arrival, they had fresh foods and drinks available for us in the fridge. They also had a warm meal ready when we arrived. When we thought something was broken, they came quickly to help us figure out the issue. Lastly, because we stayed over the holidays, they blessed us abundantly with small gifts for our four children. The landowners truly went over and above any other landowners that we have met through Homeaway! If we are able to visit Crete again, we will definitely be staying here again!

Car: necessary

The villa is located near to “Kalamitsi Aleksandrou”, a small village on the borders of Chania and Rethymno close to the quaint village of Georgioupolis. With one of the best sandy beaches in North Crete Georgioupolis offers a variety of shops, supermarkets, cafes, beach bars and restaurants and it is only 5 minutes drive away from the villa! Another area close to the villa that is well worth a visit is Kalives village just 10 minutes away and besides being known for its sandy beach and numerous hotels and markets you will be able to find everything you might need! The area around the villa is totally engulfed by natures tranquility therefore ideal for relaxing but close to everything by car. It is a superb location for those wishing to visit the North coast beaches in both Rethymno and Chania and the towns of Chania which is 34 km away and  Rethymno 31 km away. Car hire is highly recommended!  

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
