Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Sfakaki - Villas Chrisi, close to beach!

Three detached Villas, each with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool & Garden!

Located in the picturesque village of Sfakaki, a beautiful seaside resort, just 600 meters from the wonderful, long, sandy beach, lies a newly built villas complex, consisted of three independent villas.

In Villas Chrisi guests can enjoy a peaceful holiday, relax and enjoy the well known greek sun and sea all day long! The beach and a variety of shops are within hand's reach, just 300 to 500 meters away! In the village guests can find a mini market, a few restaurants and tavernas and a pizzeria! Also, in a 5 minute drive you can find many beach bars, seaside cafes and restaurants as well as a few night clubs and bars. Also, if you don't feel like touring, you can sit and rest on the balconies, just gazing at the view or relax by the pool, among roses and other flowers, trees and lawn covered areas and sunbathe!

Each lovely Villa has its own private pool and garden, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 7 persons. All villas send out a sense of luxury, which is perceived by the carefully selected, modern and comfortable furniture, the simple and discreet decoration, the meticulous selection of materials (marble floors and wooden furniture) and the nice open plan design.

Two of Villas Chrisi have the same layout, which is described in detail below.

Great Crete home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home for a stay in Crete. It was pretty much as advertised. I will tell you that the beach walk is a wee bit further than we expected, but it is within a :10 walk from the house. It is a sandy beach, but on both sides it is rocky and great for snorkeling. The house is spacious, well appointed, yard is great, pool has plenty of room. We spent a ton of time on the back deck. We were 4 adults and 2 children, and we had plenty of room. Local shopping and restaurants were wonderful. I will warn that the beds are IKEA beds and maybe not the most comfortable for a long stay :) Otherwise, great property, great owners, highly recommend!

Die Villa war insgesamt in einem sehr guten Zustand. Küchenausstattung könnte umfangreicher sein.

  • 4 of 5

Die Villa liegt in der Nähe der viel befahrenen Küstenstraße. Den Verkehrslärm hört man in der oberen Etage vor allem dann, wenn der Wind entsprechend steht.

Der Strand ist eher einfach und ein Kiesstrand mit Felsen im Wasser, Sand kommt eher wenig vor.

Wer zu einem "richtigen Sandstrand" auch mit einigen touristischen Angeboten will, muss ca. 3-5 km fahren, entweder mit dem häufig fahrenden Bus oder PKW.

Wer einen einsamen Strand zum geniessen der Sicht will, wird diesen in Villa-Nähe finden.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to review our Villa. However, please allow us to also pass you some further feedback on your comments. Firstly, we would like to clarify that the beach close to the Villa also has a sandy part. Additionally, our guests have never complained before about the noise from the road. We hope that this feedback would be valuable to comprehend our part also. Allow us also to reassure you that we are all, as a team, seeking to exceed guest expectations staying with us & our main priority is to make all out guests happy and feel at home when staying with us. Once again thank you very much for your feedback. Looking forward to seeing you again coming back "home" soon. Regards, ThinkVilla Team.

Très belles résidences dans quartier privé proche de la mer et à 2 pas de Rethymnon

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueilli lors de notre arrivée. Nous avons eu droit à une corbeille de fruits, des roses et du jus de fruit à notre arrivée.

L'entretien était au delà de nos attentes : la maison était lavée de fond en comble et le linge remplacé 2 fois par semaine, le jardin et la piscine entretenus tous les jours. Le tout par des gens souriants, forts sympathiques et très serviables. La maison est très bien située : 2 pas de la mer à pied et à mi chemin de tous les sites interressarts :

Rethymnon, ouest , est et sud de la Crête.

La maison ne manque de rien au niveau du confort.

Vacances parfaites quoi...

Merci à monsieur Kostas pour sa gentillesse et pour tous les gens qui étaient dans la propriété.

Cette adresse est à retenir !!

Hervorragend sauber und gepflegte Villen, wie wir es zuvor bei vielen Anmietungen noch nie erlebten!

  • 5 of 5

We found that you have chosen the most beautiful villa for us. Many thanks.

The villas, pools and gardens are incredibly clean and well maintained.

Kostas and his family are extremely courteous and helpful.

We felt very comfortable here and we are very sorry that our holiday ends soon. Pity.

Più' bella dal vivo che in fotografia.

  • 5 of 5

La villa e' nuova, ottimamente tenuta, pulitissima, ben arredata ed accessoriata. Le fotografie rendono solo in parte la bellezza. La vicina spiaggia non e' un gran che (la stagione deve ancora iniziare a maggio) e forse più' avanti viene sistemata.

Tuttavia la villa e' assolutamente consigliabile: la posizione nei pressi di Retimno consente di raggiungere spiagge meravigliose in 30 minuti di auto e la qualità' e le comodità' sono molte. Un ringraziamento particolare al sig. Kostas che ci ha accolti con premura e gentilezza.

The picturesque village of Sfakaki is located 10 km east of Rethymno and in recent years has evolved into a very popular seaside resort, as it combines all the features for both vacations and permanent accommodation.

The village has a wonderful, long, sandy beach, with a few pebbles, which is famous for the fact it is chosen by Caretta Caretta Sea turtle, which is an endangered species, for its reproduction. The beach is also ideal for sunbathing, swimming and water sports! Enjoy the well known greek sun and sea all day long!

Sfakaki is special specifically for another reason too: its has a variety of shops are within hand’s reach, making ideal for a car free holiday! You can taste the well known traditional Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine in the local tavernas and restaurants, have your coffee in one of the many beach bars on the coast or go for a drink in one of the small bars. In the village guests can also find a mini market and a pizzeria!

Additionally, its proximity to the highway, makes it easy to move around and travel almost anywhere in Crete and explore the amazing landscape and beautiful rustic villages! It is only 15 minutes’ drive away from the city of Rethymno and 1 hour (70 Kms) from the International Airport of Heraklion.
