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.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Manolis, for your Cretan hospitality. My husband, our two boys (10 and 12) and I felt more than welcome in your villa. We loved the view, loved the property and enjoyed the wonderful beaches and gorges around. It's so quiet and peaceful in Spilia. Your tips were excellent, we've had so many nice meals in lovely taverna's, especially in Vasilopoulo! We would love to come back and explore the west part of the island of Crete some more.

Superb villa, great location and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fantastic, we were 4 adults, 2 babies and a 5 year old and were very well accommodated. Manolis the owner is incredibly helpful having basics available in the fridge (free) on arrival including local Raki and wine. the pool is a great size and the extra paddling pool great for children. The villa is well equipped with everything and Manolis was more than happy to fetch us anything me might be missing...very reccomendable villa, hope to come again some day!

attractive property in convenient village

  • 5 of 5

The house is of very good quality well maintained with good ground floor space and an enticing pool. The use of wood and tiles gives a luxurious impression.

The owner is most welcoming with useful advice and offerings of local produce. We felt guests in a friends home rather than customers.

The village is pleasant to walk round. Only a few minutes from the local beach town of Kolumbari and the national road with easy access to Western Crete's many delightful excursions.

The house is surrounded by olive groves though the plot itself is small- the pool and half a dozen olive trees on one side and adequate parking space on the other.

Bedrooms not as spacious as living space but adequate. the nearest I can get to a negative comment is that the bathroom of the third bedroom is small with an ineffective multi spray shower fitting taking up limited space in the shower.

A peaceful holiday home set amidst an olive grove

  • 5 of 5

A well appointed and well equipped villa surrounded by olive trees with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.We arrived to find a fridge with all the immediate necessities, bottles of water,milk, fruit juice, butter, bacon and fresh eggs from the farm. There was also home produced olive oil, Raki, a platter of fresh cherries and other fruits. Perfect for breakfast if you arrive late at night.

The villa was well equipped, the pool was great for cooling off.We sat around the pool in the Cretian sunshine taking our sun loungers under the olive trees for some welome shade.

Manolis and his father were superb hosts, providing us with treats like homemade almond biscuits, freshly picked courgettes and peaches, and of course freshly laid eggs.

Villa Katerina is in the small village of Spillia, a very peaceful place where all you can hear mostly is birdsong.

Just a short stroll (3 minutes max) is the local taverna , beautiful ly appointed with ancient trees for shade. The food is very good and very reasonable . Their olive oil is also superb. We ate there 5 nights out of 7 and enjoyed every moment.

If you want complete peace and relaxation this is the place to be. A great Cretian welcome awaits you .

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.

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