The beautiful beaches of Tersanas, Kalathas and Stavros are a few minutes away from the villa and all have lovely fish restaurants and beach bars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We would definitely recommend this house. We temporarily house our senior officers and staff at this villa when they are visiting or arriving at the island. The standard and quality is a lot higher than other villas. Quiet area, good internet and close to restaurants.

Very pleased with our stay. The villa met our expectations in all perspectives.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the villa and the quiet nice village of Chorafakia was perfect for us. We are travelling with 2 small children and it was perfect to have the private pool just outside the door. A bit cumbersome to get to the beach with the kids since we didn’t have a car so we spent most of the days by the pool. It was however relatively easy to get to Chania with the bus.

The villa was nice and clean and well equipped - no dish washer but that is only a detail. Nearby restaurants made dining out easy.

Overall a very nice stay!

Superb Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Villa and as soon as we entered, it felt like a home from home. The property was exactly as it was portrayed on the Euroland website, absolutely spotless and very light and airy. The weather was in the mid 30's during our stay, but the villa stayed cool throughout. Even at night, we didn't need the airconditioning, due to the insect screens fitted to the windows, wich allowed us to have the windows fully opened in the bedrooms during the night. The pool was fantastic for cooling off during the hot sunny days, and if you have children, there is a shallow part for the kids to enjoy and the sunbeds were very nice, and in very clean condition. We brought beach towels, but Kostas and Elaine provided these too, so no need to bring your own.The kitchen area had everything you would need to enjoy your home cooked meals if you wish. The village has several tavernas within easy walking distance and two supermarkets and a pharmacy, also a coffee shop/snackbar.Stavros beach is 4km away, which we walked to, quiet a walk but well worth it.....absolutely beautiful. We hired a car and toured the western part of the island, and i must say a car would be recommended if you want to get around easily. There is a car hire business in the village with very cheap rates and friendly service. I cannot praise the villa enough and would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody.

Thank you Kostas and Elaine for a fabulous holiday!

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This was an extremely comfortable villa with amenities close by which allowed us to relax and make the most of our week's visit to Crete. The villa is exactly as it is represented in its advertising on the website. The area around the pool is ideal for relaxing in the sunshine. All the rooms were light and airy and the whole property well furnished and beautifully clean. The wonderful view of mountains in the distance was a bonus.

There are two supermarkets and several tavernas within a short walking distance of the property - all very friendly and helpful.

A trip into Chania by taxi cost us €15, which was really good value.

Kostas and Elaine were extremely helpful prior to and during our stay.

We would definitely recommend the villa and area to anyone wanting a completely relaxing break.

Modern well maintained villa which is well designed and thoughtfully furnished. Ideal for families.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Apsida from 8-20 September 2016.

Chorafakia is close to Chania but still retains a largely unspoilt Cretain charm. The villa is on a small development but by considered design the outside areas and pool feel private. The pool is not large but certainly fine for family fun. Whilst we were there it was well maintained, decorated and furnished to a good standard and very clean. The villa would suit a party of 4/6 persons comfortably. Equipment was a good order and the kitchen was well stocked. The whole house was very clean on arrival and there is an information pack giving plenty of advice about the location as well as points of interest.

Euroland ( the owners) proved very helpful with the booking process and provided clear directions on how to get to the villa. They also made a point of visiting during our stay to ensure all was well.......many thanks Elaine and Kostas, this was appreciated.

There are two small but adequate supermarkets within 500 metres and a few tavernas also within easy walking distance. The whole area is littered with lovely bays which have sandy beaches, beautifully clean sea and safe bathing.

In terms of observations it must be said that leaving the development by car can be tricky as the junction exit onto the road is blind to oncoming traffic. Euroland are aware of this issue but there attempts to cure the problem have not been permanent. An additional small point is that whilst the villa is well stocked with candles etc, if there was a power failure there were no matches.

Overall are great place to stay and we were very sad to leave. Thanks Euroland.

The perfect escape for a week of sun!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a comfortable villa with amenities close by which allowed us to relax and make the most of our week's visit to Crete. We weren't disappointed in any way at all. The villa was very comfortable, private enough, and well represented in its advertising on the website. Having a private pool is a essential for us. Rooms were light and airy and the whole property well furnished and beautifully clean. Wonderful views of the surrounding villages/towns and the spectacular mountains in the distance. Sea views as well!

Small supermarkets and several tavernas within a short walking distance of the property - all very friendly and helpful. Car hire available in the village too at a very reasonable price. We hired a car for the day, drove up into the foothills and discovered valleys of orange groves and stumbled across the Botanical Gardens of Crete - a real treat with amazing views. The Akrotiri peninsula has plenty of interesting locations to visit. Would definitely recommend the villa and area to friends and family wanting a completely relaxing break.
