About the property

Located in a peaceful area, ideal for relaxation and excursions

Gianna Villa is a stone built villa, located in the most traditional and wild area of Chania Prefecture. The view of the majestic White Mountains – Lefka Ori in greek - is breathtaking. At sunset, while the sun drops behind the mountains, the sky is painted red and the colors of the beautiful landscape are fading. The area is ideal for relaxation as you won't hear any of the sounds of the city. Moreover the spot is a perfect starting point for excursions as the villa is situated near the road that leads to Imbros Gorge and Sfakia area, near Georgioupolis with the long sandy beach and in the middle of the Chania – Rethymno distance.

The villa is built on a 15000sq.m. field. The private property is covered with lawn, flowers, a small vineyard, fruit trees and a melon field. The guests of the villa can consume any product of the field they like. The private pool is 40sq.m. and has a wonderful view, as every part of the garden. Next to the pool there is a shady area for those who cannot stand the heat and the sun of the Cretan summer. A barbecue and a traditional stone oven are found outside the villa, next to the vineyard. Garden furniture is found in many places of the garden. A small chapel completes the idyllic atmosphere.

Gianna Villa is built on two floors. At the ground floor there are a cozy area – consists of a sitting area, a dining area and an open plan kitchen – a double bedroom and a bathroom. Three more bedrooms, one with double bed and two with twin beds, are found on the first floor. On this floor there are also two bathrooms, one common and one ensuite to the double bedroom. The double and one of the twin bedrooms have French doors leading to a west balcony with mountain view. The east balcony of this floor has sea view.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time in the Gianna Villa near Georgioupolis! The stone house with its four bedrooms, the open kitchen and living-room and the three bathrooms was great. It offers a lot of space and was really very apropriate for our needs. We have been there four persons and our almost two years old son, who loved the huge area (especially the garden) very much. The view from the house is gorgeous, the pool refreshing and the barbecue very nice. The house was cleaned two times a week. We felt very warm welcomed the first day, because we found in the house local products and a bottle of red wine as present as we arrived the first day ;-) The nice village Georgioupolis is not far and offers a long sandy beach and some good taverns and restaurants. When I'm coming next time to Crete, I will spend my time again in the Gianna Villa - it was very nice!

Vryses village is built at an altitude of 70m, 30km away from Chania city, to the main road to Rethymno and is the junction linking the north coast with Sfakia Province. The name of the village comes from the topography of the region, as there are many fountains (Vryses in Greek), springs and running waters. The arresting location where the village is built, the abundant waters, the fountains and the little rivers make Vryses one of the most beautiful villages of Apokoronas.

Vryses is a new village. The village started to be built in 1905 and in 1925 the community that included all the old houses was created. The construction of a new road favoured Vryses, as residents of the surrounding villages settled there. Today the village has a high school, police station, dispensary, restaurants and coffee shops. Eating at Vryses can be a real pleasure; small taverns and cafes at the shade of the trees offer traditional Cretan dishes. The village is known for the good quality milk products.
