About Cristina Fabbricosi

Two Italian sisters, an architect and a botanist with a passion for travelling, for arts and handicrafts and for international exchange, we have been an innumerable number of times to Greece, beginning as children with family at some dear family friends – Crete represents a living myth to us! In case you need Cristina can speak Italian, English, German, French, a little bit of Spanish and, in the future, Greek with you!

Cristina Fabbricosi purchased this villa in 2010

Why Cristina Fabbricosi chose Chania area

It is placed in a central but green and quiet area of a land of beauty, an ancient Mediterranean paradise!

What makes this villa unique

The houses are in town and by the seaside but surrounded by olive gardens: a short and nice stroll leads directly to the sea; you have plenty of room around the house to make the best of sunny days!

Lovely stay in villa Kostas and Vana!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday!

We, grandparents,parents and grandchildren had the pleasure to spent a week in Almyrida in july -15.

As we were 10 persons,we rented both villa Kostas and villa Vana. The both villas were very well equipped with everything you could possibly need both inside the nice villas and outside by the lovely and clean pool,and from the roofterraces (from were you had a beautiful wiew of the see,the mountains and the village.) ,and on the nice balconies that surround the both houses. Lots of places and space to sit,eat,talk both together and in privacy. We had also very nice help from the househosts Joanne and Derek, who waited for us when we arrived and offered their help anytime!

The villas were very nice and calm situated, yet only a few minutes walk to bakery and a very nice beech. We already dream of coming back next summer! Ulla and Ulf Valsinger, Sweden

Owner's Response: It is very pleasant to receive all this appreciation, dear Ulf and Ulla! We are also in love with this place, as you can imagine... We are really lucky to have met Joanne and Derek that we consider as friends: they are genuine and precious people who have chosen a place to live that is... as precious!! No need to say that you will always be welcome. Cristina

I will go back someday

  • 5 of 5

My vacation at villa Vana on Crete, in November 2013, was a delightful experience. But Homelidays wants facts, not impressions or feelings, so here are the facts. During the booking process, the owner, Cristina, answered promptly to my emails, was available for telephone contact, provided correct and relevant information (such as directions on how to drive from the airport aso). The property is just as described in the advert. The villa is ideal to accommodate 6 people, as it has 3 bedrooms, each with either 2 single beds or one twin bed. We were 7 guests, the seventh slept on the sofa, which actually proved to be very comfortable. The house was clean and welcoming, and the appliances functioned as expected. We were greeted at our arrival by an extremely nice and service-minded English couple, Joanne and Derek, which were later on available on phone for any problem or question we had, and helped solve it promptly. For example, the first night was a bit cold. We called them and before evening came again, they brought us blankets. This was pretty much the only problem we had during our stay, but simply knowing that Joanne and Derek were there, ready to help if needed, gave me a much appreciated peace of mind. They also gave us useful tips on the lovely small food shops in the neighborhood. Almyrida is a small village and it proved to be the perfect destination for us, who want to avoid the big tourist crowd. I would love to go back and spend another vacation in the same village and the same villa!

  • 5 of 5

"First of all, it was really a nice vacation house where I would go back. We just had some little troubles with the gas for cooking, a blocked door, no water (but that was described in the terms and conditions), but the staff in Crete helped us very well. The house looked more like the description than we expected."

Our journey was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Kostas villa for a week and we were 4 persons.

The villa is simply perfect and the position is really close to everything.

Also the owners of the house were very kind and gave us all the information and the support we needed.

We strongly recommended!

Super AAAAA

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, perfectly located near (but not too much) the centre of Almyrida. The rooms are fairly big with air con. Everything in the house is new and in perfect order. The roof is great for night BBQs. The swimming pool was the best part of the trip for my kids. Was an absolute pleasure to deal with Cristina and the "local" Brits guys we were in touch with (Derek and Joanne).

Strogly recommended!
