A truly magical place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly beautiful! If you are looking for an authentic trip to Crete, this is the place for you. If you are lucky and it’s still available, our recommendation is to book immediately. After reading the great reviews our expectations were high – but they were far exceeded. The villa and area are stunning, but it is really the people that make this place magical. Manolis, the house owner, is kindhearted, knowledgeable and respectful and he made us feel like friends right from the start. Upon arrival, Manolis welcomed us at the house and took some good time to introduce us to the house, give suggestions on dinner locations for the night and first excursion possibilities. We appreciated this highly! We never felt pushed to follow any of the suggestions, but we were always glad when we did, as the tips are spot on. Every few days Manolis would check in on us and make sure that we had a great time and everything we needed. He also prepared a five-page document giving tips on places to see and where to eat. For us this was very handy, as it took the pressure of researching ourselves and it had a good mix of popular highlights in the region and off-the-beaten path destinations.

We visited in October and were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed 14 days of sunshine with temperatures around 25 degrees. As we visited in the off-season, we basically had the beautiful beaches at Balos, Elafonissos and Phalasarna to ourselves. A swim in the pool or ocean was extremely enjoyable and we did so every day. The region is beautiful with diverse beaches, the most spectacular olive groves as far as the eye can see, gorgeous mountains and gorges and the most welcoming and friendly people you can imagine. We also loved to stay at the villa. Especially the morning and early afternoon are spectacular; you see the sun coming up behind the white mountains and the view over the olive groves down to the beaches of Kolymbari is breathtaking. We spent hours gazing, looking at the birds of prey circling in the air over the hundreds of olives trees surrounding the villa. The villa has a traditional feel and is very homely, equipped with everything you may need or want. The housekeeper Eleni comes twice a week and makes sure that the house is spotless clean. She is very friendly and took extremely good care of us. Our favorite meals were with Petros in Vassilopoulo (I could have eaten here every day, but they are only open in the weekends during off-season), the home-cooked

Excellent property and warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd time we had stayed at Villa Katerina. It is located in a small village with beautiful views of the olive groves, sea and mountains. The property is extremely well equipped and Manos is an attentive and truly welcoming host. All the advertised features provide a taste of luxury and it is so good to find fresh fruit, olive oil, wine and coffee already provided.

Our stay was quiet, peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. The pool is a great asset and wonderful to cool off in!

The local Taverna is a short walk and provides excellent choices of food in a shaded terrace. There is a local shop which sells almost everything you might need and Kolymvari has a supermarket and many seaside restaurants, bars and shops, plus a nearby pebble beach.

Manolis also provided a contact for car hire which proved very reasonable.

The only disappointment was that we could not stay longer!!

Thank you Manos!

Amazing Villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks in gorgeous Villa Katerina.

Peacefully located in the sleepy little village of Spilia with stunning countryside views, the villa is ideally situated to visit the gorgeous beaches and towns of Crete's west coast.

The villa's owner Manolis was a lovely kind host, providing a welcome pack including honey, yoghurt, olive oil, home grown fruit and vegetables, butter and eggs and even a bottle of wine and Ouzo which was all unexpected and gratefully received!

The villa was very well equipped, spotlessly clean, and more than big enough for our family comprising 2 adults, 3 big kids and a toddler.

Manolis has really thought of everything, even providing a couple of inflatables for the pool which the kids loved!

The nearby seaside town of Kolymbari with its many Tavernas and shops is a 5 minute drive and has a couple of decent sized supermarkets which was really handy.

Trip wise, we would definitely recommend a visit to Chania and especially the Venetian Port area which is lovely for an evening meal. Further afield, we had a great day on the beach at Paleochora.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this gorgoeus villa and its generous and kindhearted owner. We'd love to return, thank you Manolis!

Great villa and great host!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely lovely - very comfortable and relaxing to stay in. The pool is beautiful and great to cool off in in the July heat!

The villa is also really well located for exploring the western part of Crete and you will certainly not run out of things to do (including visiting the various stunning beaches).

Manolis is a brilliant host. He made sure we had everything we needed including helping with arrangements such as a trip to the Samaria gorge and restaurant suggestions etc.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and thank you very much to Manolis.

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!

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
