Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Chainteris Villa I
average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic villa with wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Schönes Ferienhaus mit wundervollem Blick

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben zwei schöne Wochen dort verbracht. Die Bilder halten was sie versprechen. Wir wurden von Sonja sehr herzlich empfangen und während unseres Aufenthaltes bestens betreut. Zwei Mal die Woche wurde geputzt und die Wäsche gewechselt und die von Sonja gekochte Moussaka war super lecker. Ich kann das Ferienhaus auf jeden Fall empfehlen.
