We have just returned from 2 glorious weeks in Chainteris Villa 111. Sonia made us feel so welcome and went well beyond the duties of a host. The tranquility of the villa is wonderful and you find yourself immersed in the wild life. Surrounded by some fantastic beaches that are served by lovely Cretan Tavernas, this is a very special place, and one that we would love to return to.
This villa was truly fabulous. It has an incredible view and feels really secluded, even though you have neighbours. The villa itself is really comfortable and the owners have thought of everything. The owners themselves were wonderful, meeting us from a flight at 1am! Sonia also baked us a delicious mousakka! She was so welcoming and couldn't do enough to accommodate us. We went with our 1 year old and the villa was really well equipped and felt like a home from home.
The location is remote, but we liked this, and with a car you can travel to the great beaches in the west of Crete.
I cannot recommend it enough - fabulous place, lovely people!
We stayed here in Late March. We were met as soon as we arrived (Midnight) by Sonja and her husband who made us feel very welcome and made themselves available for anything we needed. The villa is superbly equipped inside and the outside is a really great space with great vies and ample space. The furniture is extremely comfortable and great for lounging!
Sonja and her family were extremely dedicated to making our stay comfortable and kept the vill in an immaculate condition and we will most definitely return next year. Cant recommend this property enough so if you are looking for a villa in this area, stop looking and book now!

Great place with amazing view!helpful and hospital owners!highly recommended!
This villa is absolutely fantastic .. we were with my little son (3 years old) and I can tell you it's perfect for a couple with kids. The design and how is organised all is the best of the house, very comfortable have the pool and garden just 2 steps from the house. The sunset are glorious. Then 100% recommended this house, also the owners are fantastic. We will come back next year for sure.
Die Unterkunft war ein Traum. Wir (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder (3 und 12 Jahre)) hatten einen wunderschönen und erholsamen Urlaub. Der Garten mit dem traumhaften Blick aufs Meer (und insbesondere die "Bettschaukel") waren herrlich zum entspannen und lesen geeignet. Die Bilder haben absolut gehalten, was sie versprochen haben. Zudem bot der Garten insbesondere der Kleinen viel Platz zum Rennen und Toben. Der Pool ist nicht so groß, aber ausreichend für Plantsch- und Abkühlspaß. Ich hatte im Vorfeld Sorge, wie es mit der Dreijährigen wird, da der Pool nicht eingezäunt ist, aber es ging eigentlich ganz gut. Sie war einfach nie alleine im Garten. Das Haus war sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht (auch wenn wir die Fernseher nicht brauchten). WiFi war manchmal etwas instabil, aber wir fühlten uns von den Hauseigentümern perfekt umsorgt. Bei der Ankunft standen Wasser und ein kleiner Snack bereit, um den ersten Hunger zu stillen. Die Eigentümerin hat uns ferner mit reichlich köstlichem Feta Käse, sowie frischen Tomaten, Gurken, Paprika, etc. versorgt. Einen Abend hat sie für uns Moussaka gekocht (wir durften wählen zwischen Moussaka und Lasagne). Und in der zweiten Woche wurden wir zusammen mit den anderen beiden Mietparteien aus den Nachbarhäusern zum Schwager in die kleine "Taverne" eingeladen (sehr zu empfehlen!). Hier wird sogar ein bisschen deutsch gesprochen. Das Essen und die Stimmung waren toll. Vielen Dank! Es hatte uns so gut gefallen, dass wir zwei Abende später direkt noch einmal hin sind. Es gibt hier keine Speiskarte, auf den Tisch gibt es was gerade da ist, oder aber man spricht im Vorfeld ab, wann man was essen möchte. Das ist natürlich auch möglich.
Natürlich ist ein Mietwagen notwendig, der Strand ist nicht fußläufig erreichbar. Aber der Strand von Skaleta ist sehr schön, Liegen und Sonneschirme stehen am Sandstrand kostenfrei bereit, nur der Einstieg ins Wasser ist hier etwas schwieriger, aufgrund der Felsen. Aber mit dem Auto sollte man sich auch die anderen Strände in der Umgebung anzuschauen. Richtung Rythymno gibt es sehr schöne Sandstrände und in Bali gibt es eine wunderschöne Bucht mit Schnorchelmöglichkeit (und ebenfalls toller Taverne). Weitere empfehlenswerte Ausflugsziele: Das Kloster von Arkadi (20 min entfernt) und die St. Anthony Gorge (ca. 40 min. entfernt, gerade für die ältere Tochter war der zweite Teil der Schlucht ein Highlight, für die Kleine war es dann doch zu anspruchsvoll).
Fazit: Absolut empfehlenswert!
Set in the wonderful village of Prinos, the villa's location is great, as you have the opportunity to visit all the well-known beaches and sightseeing of Rethymno with your car, taking only 5 to 20 minutes maximum.
All the shops that you might need as well as the nearest beach, are located in “Skaleta” area, which is only 3 km away.
You can find taverns, cafes, small shops and various other facilities only 2 Kms away. With a lot of nature surroundings, olive and orange trees, a view to Psiloritis mountain and a wonderful sea view. You can visit Arkadi monastery, Anogia, Argyroupoli, lake Kournas, Matala, Knossos and a lot of other places that are near by. Definitely you have plenty of choices to experience moments that will be memorable to you!
Renting a car is essential to explore the area.
