Overview

About the property

The Villa Maria is located in the sea-side village called Ravdouha. It is a traditional stone-built building which was built in 1923 and was fully restored in 2004 with a lot of care, keeping alive the characteristics of Cretan architecture.

In 2016 it was the year that started operating as a tourist accommodation.

The view that you will be able to enjoy from our beautifully landscaped terraces are mostly the vineyards and the olive groves of the village. The nights in our terrace are calming and unique as you can stare at the stars while drinking a glass of wine.

In a very short distance of 20 m. from the house you can enjoy the view at the gulf of Kissamos.

The Villa Maria provides free WiFi and TV with internet channels for the best entertaining experience of the visitor. Usually when you arrive in Villa Maria, one of the owners will be there to welcome you, show you the house and provide you all the information and help you might need for a pleasant stay.

The village of Ravdouha is a very quiet and peaceful place, ideal for pleasant and relaxing vacations. On the way from the village to the beaches, we will find the most magnificent view of the gulf of Kissamos, as well as many small churches, which most of them date back in the middle of 11th century.

In both of the two unique beaches of Ravdouha, the visitor can find taverns with fresh fish and sea-food, traditional Cretan cuisine and rich breakfast,

The visitors have plenty of options for activities. There are paths for walking, hiking and organized diving groups in the underground cave of the village. The bottom of the Ravdouha beaches is unique and very interesting.

You can find super markets, pharmacies, banks, doctor etc, in Kolimbari village, 4 km far from Ravdouha or in Kissamos, 14 km far from Ravdouha.

We are wishing you an unforgettable and pleasant stay!

Why Maria chose Ravdoucha

On the coastal settlement of Ravdoucha, on the west side of Prefecture of Chania, is located Villa Maria. A traditional stone-built house built in 1923 and renovated with great care in 2004, while keeping the characteristics of the traditional Cretan architecture such as arches, stone walls, wooden ceilings and a fireplace.

Villa Maria is located on a hill. From the terrace you can admire the olive groves and the vineyards during the day and at night the stars will envelop you as you enjoy a glass of wine with your friends.

What makes this villa unique

The village is really quiet and peaceful and what makes it special and unique is that it combines mountain and sea. The inhabitants are friendly, hospitable and are mainly engaged in agriculture, animal husbandry and fisheries. The village is ideal for people who love nature and for those who want to relax away from the noise of the city. The visitors can have walks through the paths, bike, go fishing, scuba diving and enjoy fresh fish and sea-food as well as traditional Cretan cuisine in the sea-side taverns.

Wonderful villa, nice hosts

  • 5 of 5

Dear Maria, thank you very much for a wonderful stay. Beautiful house, everything is inside, dream holidays.

Can also mention hospitality of the hosts - good to come to the house with a bottle of wine, fruits and best wishes for holidays.

We investigated all beaches around, most favourite are Falasarna and Ellafonisi, not influenced by wind Afrata. We suggest also to take a boat trip to Gravmousa and Balos, wonderful lagoon.

Thank you, Maria, we would come back one day.

Best wishes from Norway ❤🇳🇴

Maison et situation top!

  • 5 of 5

L'accueil de Maria, son fils et sa belle-fille a été particulièrement chaleureux malgré notre arrivée tardive à 5h du matin. En plus des petits cadeaux de bienvenue (à boire et à manger), Maria nous a laissé le minimum pour survivre (café, huile d'olive, pain, fruits, beurre, gâteau...). La maison est extrêmement confortable et spacieuse, il ne manque rien, il y a même une armoire à pharmacie. Les terrasses sont agréables et propices aux moments de détente, le barbecue gigantesque. Côté situation, pour qui aime la tranquillité, la maison est idéalement située pour parcourir l'ouest de l'ile: les gorges de Samaria 1h, Chania 30 min, Falassarna 30 min, Elafonissi 1h et 15 min pour le centre de Kissamos où l'on peut faire son ravitaillement ou bien prendre le bateau pour Balos. A noter également la super taverne "Waves on the rock" située sur la petite plage de gauche en bas du village : on y mange sur une belle terrasse sous les mûriers avec le bruit de la mer en fond sonore, c'est top!

En résumé, une belle adresse!

Sehr erholsamer Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Wir wurden trotz der späten Ankunftszeit freundlich empfangen. Im Haus standen ein gefüllter Obstkorb, Wein und Raki als Begrüßung für uns bereit. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, uns hat nichts gefehlt.Wir haben jeden Morgen auf der Terrasse gefrühstückt, abends hinter dem Haus den Sonnenuntergang beobachtet. Großartig.
