As it appears in the pictures - beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained and owners concerned that everything should be perfect. Lovely pool and BBQ are great fun for children. Well positioned for exploring Chania and the pretty Western Crete beaches - car a must.

June/July in Crete

  • 5 of 5

The internet information on the Joanna villa was an understatement. The villa, the swimmingpool and the garden well exceeded our expectations. Lots of space, very fresh and clean, luxurious and traditional in the best meaning. The premises are fantastic and do not need any improvement (with exception of the plumbing, which does not match the very elegant bathrooms). The verandas and balconies were fantastic and very useful as they offered the right choice of sun and shade during the day. We rented a car at the airport and used it well. There are dozens of amazing excursions in the vicinity and the hostess helped us finding those, that the guidbooks did not mention. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A totally brilliant honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We chose Villa Joanna for our honeymoon, and we weren't disappointed. The villa is stunning, and the photos do not do it justice. Everything was immaculate and beautifully presented and after only a few days the place felt like home. The brick BBQ kept Carl happy, and the pool was perfect for cooling off in. The owners, Lefteris and Joanna, couldn't do more for us - they were lovely, giving us fresh vegetables and looking after us. We cannot express enough how highly we rate the villa and the hospitality of the owners, and we hope to visit again to celebrate our anniversary next year.

First class villa

  • 5 of 5

I truly lovely villa, clean, well equiped and wonderfully maintained.

We loved the position, Maleme is pretty quiet which is what we wanted but if you want more life then Platanias, which is only 2km or so down the road, has everything that an party lover could want!

Maleme is well positioned to explore the western side of Crete which is less touristy than central / eastern Crete. Be sure to check out the local villages and their welcoming tavernas!

We would be more than happy to return to this villa.

Car: recommended

16 km west of Chania, in this very fertile corner of Crete, Maleme was famously the setting for the epic Battle of Crete in the last world war. Today the countryside is dominated by sweet smelling orange groves and whispering plantations of tall bamboo which fringe the mile upon mile of almost deserted pebbly beaches. Maleme has a good choice of tavernas, and a fairly large supermarket and although the village has undoubtedly grown in recent years, it still retains a pleasingly unsophisticated air and if you explore a little, you'll soon find the local baker and a real Greek butcher's shop. For a little more action the bustling village of Platanias is just under 4km away but if you prefer a slower pace of life and a rather more tranquil atmosphere, there are several sleepy villages located just inland.
