Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is perfect in what it offers and location. It may be considered a little remote, but lets face it, everywhere in Crete is remote if you plan on seeing more then one specific place. After an entire day seeing various museums, villages, and visiting the great beaches like Elafonisos, Balos, Preveli, and whatever others we stopped at, there is nothing better than to sink into the luxury of the Villa. Admittedly, we ended up not even leaving the villa on three different days!! And we do not regret it. Get a car!!! Drive and explore!!! Wear yourself out with activity, fun and excitement!!! At the end of the day, you have the most incredible place to come home to. I can not say enough good things about our host Kostas and Elain. When we needed information, they were accessible no matter what day or time with immediate responses. So no waiting around wondering what to do next. If we needed a suggestion, Kostas gave us information, directions, and even brief history of places to help inspire our interest. This service was priceless and put our family vacation on a whole other level. Thank you both so much!!!

Relaxing, peaceful and stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Akri is possibly the most beautiful place I have ever stayed! The first evening we spent taking photos of the sunset, which turned the sky golden all across the valley. The views were spectacular and we all spent some time either looking out at the sea or photographing it. To compliment the views, the beautiful outdoor seating / relaxing area was perfect, as was the pool and hot tub.

The four double bedrooms were beautifully clean, and all have remarkable views, so no fighting over who gets the best bedroom! The gym, table tennis table, and sound system also mean that children / teenagers will be kept amused. A visit to Chania is a must, as the seafront there is full of character.

I would heartily recommend Villa Akri to friends and family; a beautifully designed house in a breath-taking location.

Amazing, relaxing, luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing villa. Lived up to all expectations with it's amazing views, luxurious modern accommodation and brilliant location. Peaceful and secluded, yet not remote. You need a car but this gives you all the freedom to visit the lovely beaches in Almyrida and Kalyves and return in the evening for some authentic cretian restaurants. Kokkino Chorio also has tavernas which are walking distance and can recommend the local supermarket, where products were often cheaper than in the bigger towns. The villa is located on a hillside with the most amazing views of Souda bay and sunsets every night. We never bored of the view and watching the goats scrambling across the rocks on their daily walks. The villa inside has everything you could need - added bonus of brilliant sound system and gym. Fresh linens, plenty of cupboard space and very spacious bathrooms added to the life of luxury. Outside, plenty of sunbathing areas, gorgeous infinity pool and generous hot tub. There are also plenty of spaces around the garden to sit, in the early morning and evening sun. We couldn't recommend this villa highly enough and hope to return one day.

A very special villa!

  • 5 of 5

Akri is a very well located villa with the most breathtaking views of Souda Bay. The location is gorgeously serene and relaxing but by no means remote--easy to access and close to the town too, with lovely authentic Cretian restaurants.

The gate pulls back to reveal Akri as a superbly designed beautiful villa finished to an exceptional standard, and equipped with everything you could ever need on a holiday including a superb sound system for my own music!

I loved the clean and fresh homely feel throughout, inside and out, while still feeling treated to a slice of holiday luxury I will never forget. Cool cotton sheets in huge comfy beds- which ever bedroom you are in- whilst falling asleep with a full view of Crete adds to my collection of beautiful memories in Villa Akri. The spacious outdoor BBQ area overlooks the pool and the view of the bay - a treat especially as the sun goes down.

The infinity pool was very welcome as was the hot tub, at all times of the day and night.

We were lucky to have a Cretian chef- Stefanos- cook for us at the villa; a highly recommended treat. Easily 5 star, I can't rate it highly enough.

Wonderful Holiday experiance

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend a relaxing holiday the villa was amazing very luxurious, the views were stunning felt like I was in a different world. The Villa had everything you need for a wonderful family holiday the infinity pool that the kids loved, the villa also had a out side pool table & table football which the kids and adults enjoyed, the outside entertainment area housed a large outside kitchen with BBQ and dinning table & chairs which we used all the time, and to finish the evening off we all used the wonderful hot tub, the villa's accommodation was equipped with everything a family needs it was a home from home even a games room for the kids to keep them entertained, each room is decorated to the highest standard.

The area where the villa is Kokkino Horio is very beautiful and a short drive to Almyrida where we enjoyed eating out at the lovely restaurants, hiring a car to explore the island is a must as the beaches are beautiful, Crete is one of our favourite places to visit and we will definitely be using this villa again and will recommend to anyone who is thinking of visiting Crete for a holiday.

Amazing villa with something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

All the rooms have lovely sea views, were very nicely furnished and well presented on arrival. The outside games area, hot tub and pool kept the family entertained for the week and that view, WOW!! The view that never stops giving! Beautiful sunsets and even at night it comes alive with all the twinkling lights around the bay.

A small pebble beach, two tavernas and a supermarket are within a walkable distance in Kokkino Chorio or as we preferred, a 5 minute drive into Almyrida where you'll find a nice safe bathing sandy beach and many restaurants.

We all had a fun and very relaxing holiday at villa Akri, we will definitely return.
