Terrific, well equipped lovely Villa.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week stay at Villa Chakra. It is a lovely villa and is exactly as described by the owner. All the photos are an accurate representation of the villa. It is well equipped, spacious, delightfully furnished and in a great location. The village of Plaka is a ten minute walk and there are a number of lovely restaurants and bars. We also walked most days to Elounda and took the bust back or vice versa. It takes an hour to walk there but the road is by the coast and the views are beautiful. We did have a hired car but there are regular buses to Elounda and Aghios, they seem to run pretty much to time, so a car is not essential. The area is really lovely, we had a great holiday.

Amazing views of Spinaloga. Fantastic Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Villa Chakra for 2 weeks in August 2011 and had an amzing holiday.

My husband and the boys went for the scuba diving in the crystal clear waters and weren't disapointed. The gentalman who manages the apartment put us in contact with 'Cretas Happy Divers' who were fantastic.

Whilst the lads were diving I relaxed in and around the villa which has everything and more which you would exptect from a holiday rental. It was more like a home from home.

You can walk to Plaka village and beach although the heat of August made it a bit uncomfortable for someone unfit like me.

We hired a car for our stay and explored the Island. Knosso and Lato well worth a visit.

We found the villas manager very friendly and helpful steering us right with places to go and advice on which restaurants were the best value. It is certainly worth having a chat with him on your first day.

We found the booking of the villa very simple and the communications superb.

Fantastic, relaxing week at a superb villa.

  • 5 of 5

This is without doubt one of the most complete 2 bedroom villas you could ever book in Crete. It is so tastefully appointed with stunning views over the sea to Spinalonga and yet giving you the privacy to enjoy the wonderful pool and hot tub. The village of Plaka is just literally down the road and is home to not only lovely Cretan restaurants but also to some authentic family run bars.

The booking process was easy and Colin who manages the property for the owner was a font of knowledge on the local whereabouts, ask him for the restaurant up in the hills 10 mins from the villa!!

This villa is a must for anyone who wishes peace and quite but also a small village at the bottom of the hill. Go and enjoy.

What a relaxing break - great villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 11 days in September and had a wonderful time. The villa was well equipped and nicely furnished. We really loved the pool and the hot tub and enjoyed a few meals on the barbecue. You have a fantastic view of Spinalonga.

The villa is about a 10 minute walk to the small village of Plaka - downhill to the village, uphill on the way back - it wouldn't be great if you had any mobility issues. I would recommend hiring a car so you can make the most of the beautiful coastline.

The rocky beach is just down the road and has the clearest water you can imagine - we loved going for a dip.

The owner was great to deal with and replied to our queries promptly

Take a 10 min walk from Villa Chakra to the fishing village of Plaka, enjoy a stroll along the pebble beach and choose one of the tavernas along the sea front choose from a variety of menus specialising in fresh fish caught daily. Or take a boat trip with the locals to the amazing Island of Spinalonga (10 min trip). Plaka is a very friendly village stephanie owns the local pub on the corner of plaka where you can relax outside for as long as you wish they also have live music every week, further along from the pub is a fantastic clothes shop take a further 20 min walk to Elounda which has its own charm but more of a tourist feel sandy beach sea side restaurants boat trips Your next town is Aghios Nichalaos full of restaurants.shops, tourist info, bars, sandy beach boat trips lagoon side restaurants my favourite town.
