About the property

Charming villa

My name O Finikas, I want my name to the old palm centuries that is reflected in my pool.

I was built in the 18th century by aristocrats whose descendants, the Pistolakis family were friends of the Greek Prime Minister. And it is within my walls in 1913 signed the annexation of Crete to Greece.

After decades of forgetfulness, my new masters gave me a new life. My great 15m swimming pool on 6m, my landscaped garden surrounded by high stone walls and luxury interior comfort confirm my air of nobility.

Charming villa renovated (2008) separated into two houses totally independent.

Near Chania, the house is located near the most beautiful beaches peak. The place is ideal for those who want to spend a quiet and peaceful holiday while enjoying the tourist activities the historic capital peak Chania.

O'Finikas villa with large swimming pool
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a mixed group of 11, ranging in age from 5, 16, some early twenties and some adults staying for 10 days. We were 2 family groups and the space worked very well for us as the villa is 2 self contained villas joined together with tons of outdoor space and plenty of seating areas so you can sit together or find some peace.

The villa bedrooms were mostly air conditioned and there were 2 bathrooms in the larger villa and 1 in the smaller. Only 1 had a walk in shower which was a shame but not a massive problem.

The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and some oil, salt and washing up liquid was provided.

The outside space is fabulous, the main feature being the huge pool which was immaculate. There are plenty of sun beds and an outside kitchen and fridge which is great when you're wet and want a drink.

The villa is 5 mins from the airport so a short transfer and very easy to find your way back from anywhere as you follow airport signs. The noise was very minimal and certainly not a problem. There are restaurants, small supermarkets and shops within walking distance and a lidl 10 mins away. We felt the position of the villa was great for access to Chania where we had the most wonderful fresh fish and seafood on the old harbour. There are also a number of beautiful beaches within easy access and a water park approx 20 mins away.

The villa was very well maintained and clean, the charming owners are a French couple and they came in to clean mid week and changed the sheets after a week which was lovely. There are good quality towels provided for bathrooms and pool and bed linen was very good quality.

We absolutely loved our stay in this villa and would recommend it to anyone considering Crete as a holiday.

Owner's Response: Ciao, Grazie per i tuoi commenti. Per quanto riguarda l'acqua calda, che è completamente disponibile, forse non hai capito il sistema. Spero di vederti di nuovo. Cordiali saluti,
