3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lots of outdoor space, close to sandy beach.

The villa is newly built, clean, stylish and beautifully decorated. It is in a small development built on a hillside overlooking Fodele Bay and has stunning views of the sea and sandy beach below. The view of the mountains all around isn't bad either! It is a pleasant 15 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) down to the unspoilt, sandy beach, which, further around the headland, offers sailing and water-skiing activities, as well as beach-side tavernas. The villa is built over 3 floors and has 3 bedrooms, a shower room, bathroom, well-equipped kitchen/dining room and a spacious lounge.

It is an easy and direct 25 minute drive from Heraklion airport/port and is a good base for exploring all that Crete has to offer. Alternatively you can just chill out by the pool, laze in the large hammock or relax in the lounge chairs on the terraces The choice is yours.

I decide to invest in a holiday home some years ago and bought this property on the recommendation of a friend. I didn't intend to rent it out but circumstances have changed and I find that actually I prefer to have people staying there and using it rather than have it sitting there empty most of the year, which would be a great shame. I had great fun sourcing all the furniture etc and have equipped it as if I was living there myself so I have tried to include all equipment that a normal person would use. The people in Fodele are friendly and I, and my friends, have had many a happy holiday there. I particularly like the private pool and still haven't quite got used to the fact that I own such a lovely villa. I hope that you enjoy staying there as much as I do.

RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a month long stay at this villa about 4kms outside the little village of Fodele. The villa is lovely, very comfortable and furnished to a high standard everything you need to live well in this villa. There are four sunbeds and the pool is a good enough size and just lovely for a cooling dip The villa sleeps six people in its three good sized bedrooms with an inflatable bed for another two if required, we found the aircon very welcome during our stay. The villa is accessed via a steep unmade road and while it is perfectly possible to walk to the beach, it took us about 15mins, it is probably easier by car. There are two beaches one is scruffy but if you walk a bit further on the next beach is lovely with soft sand and a few tavernas, the Dolphin taverna is very good where we enjoyed some lovely evenings with good food. Fodele village is quite small but has a surprising number of tavernas.You will need to drive there as it's a bit too far to walk. It has several shops all selling the same tea towels, table runners and string bags!! But if you go to the top end of the village there is a lovely walk probably about 5 kms to an old abby, which is very small when you get there but the walk was very nice and peaceful Depending on the length of your vacation you will want to get out and about the villa has some very good guide books on Crete and is just off the main E75 the main road that runs along the north coast of Create. From this villa Chania is about 1 1/2- 2 hr drive and is well worth a visit. We would recommend this villa to anyone who wishes to have a week or two just reading and relaxing by the pool, the neighbours either side are lovely and are so helpful with advice and local knowledge. There is a DVD player available so make sure you bring some DVD's along if you wish to watch something on tv as there is no sat tv or internet There are some packs of cards at the villa but maybe good to take some games if you like that sort of thing for the evening. All in all a very pleasant and relaxing holiday

WE LIKED IT

  • 5 of 5
We were a family with 2 kids and with grandma/grandpa, so 6 people altogether. We liked the villa, the pool and the view. Everything is pretty new, clean and in good shape. We didn't find it on google satellite, but the satellite pictures are a couple of years old, so they are older then the actual villa. When you arrive (you will need a car), Paul - english speaking - will meet you at an easy to find spot and guide you to the house which is a little hard to find the first time. But don't worry they were all very helpful from the beginning. The owner is helpful, too, she sent us much infos in advance via email. We booked on very short notice, but since we very lucky and is was available that was not a problem. Overall we liked it very much and can recommend it! It has lots of items you would need, like kitchenware, fans, some books, a CD-player and more. There is no TV but we did not miss it at all. The location is good, too. Because you can easily explore Heraklion, Rethymno (a visit worth!!) and even Chania in convenient day trips. We even made trips to the south (Matala) which is not too far. Good deal.

2 HOT WEEKS IN CRETE!

  • 4 of 5
We have just returned from two lovely weeks in Anne-Marie's villa in Fodele.The villa is spacious, well equipped and has fantastic views. The next door neighbour is extremely kind and helpful. We managed to do quite a bit of exploring but it was rather hot so go out early to avoid the heat and the crowds at the main attractions like Knossos. I have to say that the main criticism of the villa is the lack of air conditioning, it made it particularly difficult to sleep at night especially in the ground floor room and as it was too hot to close the windows it meant that we struggled with the mosquitos even with the fly screens and were badly bitten on a regular basis despite the screens,machines, coils, sprays and repellents! The locals are fantastic, don't miss going to the Dolphin bar on the beach and say hello to Nikos for us, Katrin Taverna was also good and we were taxied home by the owner when he found out that we were walking! Fodele village is lovely, we particularly liked the springs at Argyroupoli , Lake Kournas and Georgioupoli are especially picturesque,and Water City was a great hit with the girls.Book on line and print your voucher before you go and you save 15%, we didn't know this until we got there and it is 25 Euros to get in and goes on height not age of the kids. Would love to go back to Crete and see more of the island. Thank you for a fantastic holiday. The Bailey Family.

FANTASTIC SEA AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Spend a very good week here soaking up the sun and enjoying the sea and mountain views. Villa is comfortable, well equiped and maintained and spotlessly clean. The grounds were bigger than expected with plenty of space around the pool and a generous selection of outside furniture. Especially enjoyed the hammock. Paul the local agent was very helpful. Local beach, tavernas and village within easy reach. Well located for vising Knossos and other archaelogical sites which are within easy driving distance - although our daughters preferred the day spent at Water City! All in all a great holiday - THANKS

PERFECT VILLA FOR A QUIET HOLIDAY IN A LOVELY AREA

  • 5 of 5
From first contact through departure, this was an outstanding holiday. Anne-Marie made sure everything was arranged perfectly and things went exactly as hoped.

We travelled as a family of 2 adults and 2 children (aged 3 and 5). Although the deep pool and steep stairs in the villa might not seem ideal for small children, with a little supervision we had no problems over a 10 day break and the kids loved every second! Speaking of which - the large pool was excellent and spacious garden was a real pleasure to spend time in.

The villa was superbly equipped and located close to the local village and beach. You could easily spend a week without going more than a few miles from the house. A hire car is necessary to get to/from the villa and also allow exploration of the island, and there are many great beaches and coves to discover within an hour or so from Fodele.

My family and I have no problem in recommending the villa to families, couples or groups looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday within easy reach of Crete's various sights and attractions.

The villa is close to the pretty village of Fodele where you will find plenty of tavernas and restaurants serving locally grown, tasty food. Fodele is famous as the birthplace of El Greco and his house is now run as a museum. There are also riverside walks and nature trails. Fodele is centrally located on the north coast of Crete so is the perfect base for exploring this amazing island, whether it be the ancient Minoan Palace at Knossos, the vibrant port cities of Heraklion, Rethymno or Chania with their shops, markets and cafes/bars; the endless beaches, the mountainous interior with it's alpine meadows and windy roads (some would say hair-raising!), Samaria Gorge, the beautiful seaside town of Bali or the delightful bays and beaches all around. Although Fodele is on the main bus route from Heraklion to Chania, a car is recommended for access to the villa - the drive up to the villa is a bit steep but you just have to put your foot down and go for it!
