Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

The villa has a gorgeous overlook of the white mountains, the sea, and olive trees. Three roomy bedrooms with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows provide access to the beauty surrounding you. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. During our stay we received little bottles of shampoo, condition, shower gel, and body lotion made from olives - refreshing and clean smelling! The towels for bathing and pool use were changed every 5 days days in addition to a full housecleaning. Should you want to do your laundry, there is a washer/dryer in the villa. The covered patio terrace is cool and breezy on hot days and wonderful for eating, relaxing, and just enjoying the beautiful scenery at any time of day. When we arrived olive oil, eggs, honey, cheese of Crete, bread, water, and bacon were at the Villa. The crystal clear swimming pool, lounge chairs, and seating area was well used after full days of sight-seeing and late into the evening as the sun set over olive trees. We stayed a month - what made this stay most memorable was Manolis, the property manager, who met us with a huge smile upon arrival, provided us with basic instructions for working the air conditioning, location of shopping areas, dinning suggestions, and encouragement to visit the most beautiful areas of Crete and checking on our needs every few days, encouraging us to see the beauty of Crete in everything we did. There are maps, and books, along with a 3-page typed document with recommendations for sight-seeing, shopping, and dining. Wi-fi perfect (for FaceTime/Skype) across the continents even when everyone was using their technology at the same time. Our favorite dining areas were in Kolymbari as well as along the scenic road through Platanias (towards Chania). Definitely take advantage of the tourist train with many options for visiting and tasting beer, wine, and olive oil, while admiring the gorgeous scenery. We recommend the hop-on hop-off bus in Chania and Herklion to see the sites in a nutshell, then the second time around on the bus, hop-off and shop or sight see, then hop back on when you're ready to go to the next stop. Be sure to visit Balos and Gramvousa, Flasarna and Elafonissi beaches which will remain in your heart forever. Truly, athough the sites and ruins are beautiful, the most beautiful are the people of Crete with their amazing hospitality! I highly recommend this villa and would return here!

Very Good Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Villa Katerina. The owner, Manolis, was like a hotel concierge. From sending us directions from the airport to the villa, supplying fresh eggs, and being a source of useful local information.

The villa is spacious, modern, and has everything one needs. With views over the village one way, and across countryside to the sea another way, the villa is in the perfect peaceful location.

I highly recommend it.

Fabulous And Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, location and hospitality! What more could you ask from a holiday. The villa was clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchen, barbeque outside and a fabulous pool to relax in. The view while eating outside was fantastic and one that you never tired of.

Manolis was the best manager you could ever want, the welcome package of olive oil, bacon, eggs, olives, raki, bread, watermelon and honey, etc was amazing and was replenished when finished. The unexpected visits with little treats, the suggestions of so many fabulous places to go, best beaches, bars, restaurants and views. We loved the Botanical gardens, Chania with its great shopping and markets - definitely worth a visit, as is the local boat trip and snorkelling in the coves. All this made our holiday a fantastic one that we and the kids will remember for a long time , Manolis made it all the more special. Thank you.

Crete is such a beautiful island, with wonderful food, lovely people and a relaxed pace of life , we will come again.

We would highly recommend Villa Katerina, Manolis and Crete.

Fantastic Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

More than what you see on the pictures... very clean and fully functional. Each of the three bedrooms has its own private bathroom. Great for three couples! Perfect array of towels for shower and beach. We had two cleanings during our 10-day visit. Kitchen stocked with olive oil, butter, olives, eggs, honey, jam, bread when we arrived. Manolis was there to greet us upon our arrival. Far away from the noise of traffic and people. Manolis has a three page typed list of great places to go and things to do. Church bells and rooster start your morning if you leave the windows open. This location is close to Elafonissi, Balos and Falasarna beaches. We wanted for absolutely nothing! This is a gem for sure

A great villa in a lovely position

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this lovely villa. It is exactly as described and has beautiful views over to the sea and the mountains. It has twice weekly servicing, with change of towels and linen. The hospitality and generosity of Manolis, the property owner was amazing. We had fresh eggs, olive oil, honey, fruit, olives and many other things supplied regularly and nothing was too much trouble. The location is very quiet so don't expect a rowdy nightlife!

The local taverna is walking distance and very friendly with great food, the only disappointment was no seafood on the menu. Other restaurants are a drive away but there is a lot of choice.

Amazing Villa and Perfect Host

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in different Greek villas every year for the last 10 years or so and this was the best we've seen. The villa is so comfortable and Manolis makes sure you have everything you need - he provided us with free fresh eggs, olive oil, olives, milk, melon etc etc and even organised a beautiful locally cooked feast for us one night which was one of the best meals we've ever had. The location is great, the view stunning and the area gives you access to all the best places in Western Crete. Absolutely fantastic.

Car: recommended

Spila is located on the edge of the plain of Chania 2 km from Kolymvari, 22km from Chania city-centre and 35 km from the airport of Chania. The village is near the junction with the national road which allows access to Chania in less than 25 minutes and makes easy the access to the most famous places in West Crete. The village Spilia (cave in Greek) is named after the Cave of Ai-Yiannis Erimitis which is located in the west part of the village on a hill, on an impressive site of great historical importance with exceptional view.

Near the entrance of the Cave of St. John the Hermit there is an underground water collector, while the sides of the arcade are decorated with stalagmites and stalactites.

The Cave of St John the Hermit exudes a religious character, as it is adorned with icons and ecclesiastical objects that hang on its walls.

Dominating the village is the Church of Panayia Myrtidiotissa whilst, a short distance away from the Villa (100m away) is situated a very pleasant and locally taverna offering traditional food. The tavern is under a dense vegetation of extremely high Plane Trees, that are centuries old.

Close by, there are 1 small mini-market and 1 bigger one,where you will find provisions; fresh bread, fruit and vegetables and indispensable articles.

In charming Kolymvari (5 minutes by car) you will find the Iera Moni Gonias Monastery and the Orthodox Academy of Crete.

In the village there are many pleasant tavernas, restaurants and kafenios, a post office, a medical center, a supermarket and bank / ATM’s.

The area is famous for its fish, landed fresh daily from the harbour, the fragrant wine of the Kissamos area and the awarded olive oil with it’s low acidity rate.

Spilia village is ideally located for you to visit the most important coasts of Crete, the well-known Falassarna with the immense sandy beach, the ancient town and the enchanting lagoon of Elafonisi, attractions awarded by international organizations for their clearness and the multi coloured sand formations. In the wider area is set the beautiful lagoon of Balos at Gramvousa, where you can enjoy all the tints of blue and green.

West Crete has much to offer, sightseeing, archaeological sites, the lovely beaches of Falassarna, Elafonissi and Balos which are all within easy driving distance from the Villa.

The famous Samaria Gorge, and many other wonderful Gorges (famous and not famous) & walks in the countryside are another option.

Go and visit the maybe the oldest olive tree in the world at Vouves.It still produces olive oil today!!You only need 10 minutes drive.

Night-life, beach bars, wind-surfing and other extreme sports can be found in abundance all in the Platanias area which is not far away.

Crete as it may sound absurd is an ideal destination for those who want to ski at Cretan mountains. With many options , alternative routes - crossings and in combination with the quality of life would not be an exaggeration to say that the island of Crete is a paradise for those who want something different deep in the heart of winter.

We can also offer you several services ::Car rentals, Transfers,Excursions to Samaria gorge or other gorges, guided walks,massage,personal training,4X4 safari to Balos,Cooking services and Cretan cooking lessons, massage, treatments, etc
