About Georgia-Antonis /Property managers / Owner

My name is Georgia Chalkiadaki born and grew up in Rethymno Crete. Pigi is a lovely traditional village just 10 minutes away from the city of Rethymno. There my father grew up in an old house which me and my husband Antonis decided to replace it and build the house of our dreams. Only the 17m well can now remember that house!!! Me and Antonis had the original and profitable idea to build the first Sportsvilla in Greece inspired from our two loves: the luxury holidays and sports. Antonis is a gym instructor (we are also owners of a local gym) with Sports studies in Athens University and Master studies in Bristol University. We work together and have three very young children living in village nearby Pigi. I really love travelling around the world and I am sure that I can be very useful during your stay in our villa.

Fantastic family villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks here in August with 2 teenagers. We were initially attracted to the villa for it's gym, which was amazing. We used it most days. The villa itself is very modern, fully equipped with all the mod cons and spotlessly clean with a regular maid service. The location is great with all the local amenities in the village, yet you're only a 10 minute drive to the beach and lots of restaurants. Another five minutes takes you into the hustle and bustle of the lovely town of Rethymno. Antonis couldn't have made us feel more welcome, with a much appreciated meal waiting for us on our arrival. Nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend this villa!

One week in Pigi

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in a lovely village of Pigi, just a few meters walk from a taverna, minimart, butcher and bakery. Although the minimart sells everything you need you are still only a 5 minute drive from Lidl.

We were a family of 5, my husband myself and 3 teenage children. One of my son's is a very keen sportsman and he made full use of the gym which is fantastically equipped.

The house was immaculately clean and tidy and very well equipped. The only criticism would be that there weren't that many glasses or cups and its really only set up for six.

We ate out most evenings and therefore it wasn't a problem for us, but I think if you were planning to cook at the house everyday you might get a little frustrated.

Great pool area, although the door that leads out to the pool area is very easy to catch your fingers in, so those with small children should be careful.

All in all we had a great holiday. Antonis and Georgia are fantastic hosts and always on the other end of the phone should you have a problem or just need some advice. I couldn't praise them highly enough. They even provided us with food when we arrived at 1.30am.

Great house, lovely owners.

  • 5 of 5

Sportsvilla was the perfect retreat for our family; The gym setup was fantastic; the sauna even got frequent post workout use. The kids loved the play area and the pool and the shallow section was perfect for my 2 year old. We were too lazy to make an event out of using the outdoor oven, but then the restaurant that was literally just one house away was too tasty (and economical) to bother with the effort at home. Having the house cleaned twice a week was an unexpected bonus, and the owners were absolutely lovely. Five star!

Wonderful place for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Sports Villa. We have three children, aged 18, 15 and 9 and the combination of the pool, gym, pool table, basket ball, hot tub and Netflix worked a treat! The villa itself was fabulous - stylish, contemporary, really clean, well equipped, air conditioned and with everything that we could have needed for a week away. The local area offered some good tavernas and we headed further afield to find some amazing restaurants. The nearby towns had lots to offer in terms of food, shopping and beaches. The owners were just lovely - nothing was too much trouble and they even arranged some personal training sessions for our son. If you like to be active on holiday, this is a perfect option.

A fantastic place to stay in Crete!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 20 days in Sports Villa and enjoyed every minutes here. The villa is well equipped modern house with gym, swimming pool, etc. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful in every aspect. The location is also perfect: you can live in a quiet small village while the 2nd largest city (Rethimno) is only a few minutes driving. You can also reach practically every corner of Crete within a maximum 1-2 hour driving. Highly recommended!
