Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa! Tucked away in an oasis of olive trees and off the beaten track so you do need a car. However, it is only 3.5km to nearest village where there are several tavernas and a couple of supermarkets. Also the main road east to west of the island runs close to this village, which is great if you want to explore the island.

The infinity pool is fantastic and the garden (including a small veg patch with fruit trees and herbs, which you can use) are very well kept and pretty. Sunbeds were very comfortable. There is a BBQ area also. Inside the villa the décor is tasteful and the layout of a large mezzanine as the second double bedroom was not a problem. First double bedroom is downstairs, as is the bathroom. (Just a note that the en-suite to the upstairs bedroom is very small and could be a problem if you are very large or very tall!) Mattresses on the beds a little on the firm side, but there was a topper available so we utilized this which made a positive difference to the comfort factor. Anything you needed was available. We ate in some nights and as long as you can source the ingredients you need, everything is there for you to cook with. Nice music system and TV should you want to watch anything other than the countryside and stars at night.

Eating out was excellent. We especially recommend Palio Arhontiko in Kolymbari, food and service very good. Also Tis Litsas in Afrata – which we would not have known about, were it not for the owners, a bit more rustic, but such a good welcome and food, the chestnut stifado was excellent as was the company that evening.

The owners were lovely people and we would not hesitate to recommend their lovely villa and to return ourselves, hopefully soon.

The booking process, through Etouri, was very easy and Kostas was most efficient and pleasant to deal with. Any enquiries were very speedily answered.

Thank you, we had a wonderful holiday.

Stylish comfortable in a idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed, and comfortably furnished, this stunning villa has plenty of charm to match its contemporary style. Set in in a quiet location but within a 10 minute drive to local amenities, this was the ideal get away for our family. We received a very warm welcome from the owners and we shown the delights of the villa and offered some home produced goodies to help get our holiday started. 10/10

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

This villa was practically perfect for our family of four. It was in excellent condition and very clean.The hosts are friendly and helpful.

Pool area & garden are very nice as well. Plumes, various herbs, strawberries etc. grew in the garden and were available for our consumption.

The villa is located in a good spot, offering peace and quiet among olive trees while still being quite close (by car) to the restaurants and supermarkets in Kolymbari.

I can recommend this villa and location to anyone wanting to holiday in Crete.

The whole surrounding area is in a quiet natural environment and even though the living areas are close, you can feel “away from it all”!

The villa is located in a totally private area, on the outskirts of a very small village called Veni. The village is between the seafront village of Kolymvari and the small town of Kissamos (Kasteli). There is nothing that you cannot find in Kissamos nowadays, as it has all kinds of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, many restaurants and services.

In Kolymvari village which is only 4 km away, you will find a lovely beach, ideal for families and children. It also has few shopping stores, very good restaurants and tavernas and a few cafeterias. If you search for good entertainment, beach bars with daily parties, huge nightclubs and a variety of restaurants, then we suggest you to visit Platanias and Agia Marina area which is 20 minutes drive from our villa!

The closest beaches to the villa that we suggest you visit are:

The long sandy beach of Kolymvari which is 4 km away. The sandy beach of Kasteli which is 7 km away and the beach of Kaliviani which is 15 km away on the West. In the same direction you will be able to visit some of the most famous beaches in the whole Greece!

One of them is Falassarna beach (25 km away). Elafonissi beach with the pink sand which is about 50 km away and Gramvousa-Balos beach where you can visit by ferry from Kissamos town.

Furthermore it is a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only 2 minutes away.

Staying in our villa will give you not only the advantage of relaxing in a quiet private area but also be close to everything!

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").
