VILLA ARETI, LUXURY NEAR THE COASTAL VILLAGE OF KOLYMBARI

Spilia Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a/c

On the edge of the small quiet village of Spilia in North West Crete, Villa Areti has every modern comfort you might expect of a top class Villa. Often more important during the summer months, the comforts extend to the outside living space where terraces, lawns and a really great outdoor kitchen/barbecue area sit within the walled garden abutted by orange groves on two sides.

The villa is finished on classic Cretan lines with wooden ceilings and windows set into creamy stone. Squashy leather sofas furnish the living area which gives way to the dining area through a stone arch spanning the ceiling of the living space. Partially concealed around the corner, the kitchen area is a pleasant, open work space with full fridge freezer, ceramic hob, full oven and dishwasher. Generous windows look to the garden from the dining area and a small flight of steps leads to the lovely covered outdoor living area complete with a second fridge, sink and barbecue beside the dazzling free form swimming pool

On the ground floor are a twin bedroom and its own bathroom with hydro massage bath and a guest WC. On the first floor and with views across the orange groves and village rooftops to the decorative church tower, both the double and twin bedded rooms with en-suite shower rooms have access to a delightful rear upper terrace and a flight of steps down to the pool area. For soaking up the early morning sunshine or shade in the afternoons, French doors open from the upper landing to a balcony at the front of the Villa and views over the neighbour’s orange groves.

There is air-conditioning in all rooms as well as central heating for early and late season. All bedrooms have their own small plasma TV’s and ample wardrobe space.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful Villa Areti in Spilia for 2 weeks. It was the perfect place. We loved staying there and would highly recommend it to anyone. The Taverna next door was fantastic with great food. One afternoon there was a wedding on and from our balcony got to see greek dancing and listen to the beautiful music. Great location, short drive to restaurants, shops and beaches. We will be back.

What Fab Place!

  • 5 of 5
This villa was just what our family wanted. We took our in-laws so downstairs bedroom really suited them. It was comfortable and spacious inside and the kitchen had everything you needed. Upstairs has a a small balcony at the front with super views of the valley. The garden was well kept and the pool was the ideal size for our daughter who was never out of it! There was a great shady area and outside kitchen where we had breakfast and lunches everyday.
We had 2 great meal at the local taverna which is just down the road from the villa.
Kolymbari is only 10 minutes drive away with it's shingle beach and more choices of tavernas including a couple of good fish ones.
We hope we can put this in our diary for next year.

Car: recommended

A thirty minute drive west of Chania, Spilia is one of many small and timeless Cretan villages happily set back just far enough from the coast road to remain virtually untouched by tourism. It nevertheless gets a mention in some guide books for its impressive church, Panagia Mertiotissa where there is also a tiny museum housing a number of Byzantine icons. The village actually takes its name from a number of caves in the hillside above the village, one of which contains the little chapel of Saint Yiannis. It really is a serene little spot with shady trees, plus rustic tables and benches - perfect for a picnic. The land around the village is particularly fertile and covered with a patchwork of olive groves and vineyards, punctuated by small vegetable gardens. The local wine is certainly powerful stuff so if you are offered a glass or two by locals, who tend to make their own, remember to take it slowly and with plenty of water.

Spilia has a tiny village store, a taverna & and a snack & coffee shop under the large plane trees in the square. However the sea side village of Kolymbari (Kolombari) is just 2 km away and here you will find a couple of large supermarkets, butcher, baker and post office as well as some excellent tavernas on the water front noted for their fresh fish. To the east of Kolymbari there's a pebbly beach for a quick dip whilst a 10 minute drive westwards will bring you to the dramatically scenic Gulf of Kissamos with long stretches of sandy and pebbly beaches.

Just a stones throw away, in the shade of some tall plane trees, is a small café/snack bar but if you are eating out in the evening there’s a taverna just 100m stroll away down in the village. On the other hand, if you’re eating in and have run out of matches to light the barbecue, the village mini market with just the basic essentials is also no more than 100m away. Otherwise the little harbour-side village of Kolymbari is just a 5 min drive, where you can find some excellent tavernas as well as a supermarket, bakers, butchers and ATM’s. The beaches at Kolymbari are fairly quiet and mostly made up of pebbles but if you’re looking for sandy beaches then just a short half hour drive in either direction will bring you to some of the best in western Crete.

Chania Airport 50 min.

Heraklion Airport 140 min.

Taverna: Kolymbari- 3.6 km.
