What makes this Villa unique

The unique benefits in Ravdoucha Epavlis villas according to my opinion are: - "Awarded as the leading private luxury villas in Greece” for 2015 from World Travel Awards! - Totally Luxury, the whole villa's design, the furnitures, the electric devices and everything else have been chosen according the maximum possible quality! - The breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and especially the sunset views! Staying for one hour in the balconies and you feel so relaxed.. like being on vacations for a week already... - The 'away from it all' location but also being so close to everything! The villas are close to many sandy beaches, sightseeings to visit and Platanias area or Chania city where you can find all kind of services and shops! - Great starting point for excursions, according to the location of the villas in order to visit the famous 'must go' beaches of Gramvousa - Balos, Falasarna or Elafonisi! - Totally full privacy between the two villas!

                                                                      Best Rental Experience Ever!!

                                                                      My husband and I stayed at Villa Athena for our babymoon in June and we had the best time!! The villa is absolutely gorgeous with the most stunning views. Nico, the owner, was so helpful with booking us in-villa massages and also surprised us with Greek treats from a local bakery. We absolutely loved the location for its serenity! I swam everyday in the luxurious pool and my husband loved grilling local meat for us for dinner. The villa was very clean and well maintained. Nico also provided a binder of every recommendation you could think of so we felt we had the inside knowledge to Crete. We highly recommend Villa Athina and look forward to returning someday soon!

                                                                      The most amazing villa ever!

                                                                      Karen S.

                                                                      We had the most fabulous week in Villa Athina. We knew it was going to be good, but it exceeded our expectations & we didn't want to leave!

                                                                      Everything had been thought of & the little touches such as the extras we asked for on arrival & the lovely treats kindly brought by the owner made it a holiday to remember.

                                                                      We were blessed with perfect weather so spent most of the time outside by the pool & on the various floating terraces - we were spoilt for choice for places to take in the breathtaking views of this beautiful desolate part of Crete.

                                                                      There are not enough superlatives to describe how much we loved Villa Athina & we plan to return again next year.

                                                                      Just fabulous! ;-)

                                                                      Fabulous luxury home from home

                                                                      Andrew A.

                                                                      If you think the pictures are too good to be true, then you will be amazed when you get there! The location on the edge of Ravdoucha gives breathtaking views and everything you need either as a family or a couple is there for you. We were welcomed by the owner Dr. Nikos Manousakis, who made us feel like it was our home and provided all the local knowledge and information you needed, not just on arrival, but throughout the week we were there.

                                                                      From breakfast on the balcony through afternoons in the pool and evenings on the terrace, this was the perfect place to relax and also an ideal base to explore this part of Crete.

                                                                      The wonderful beaches of Falassarna, Elafonossi and Balos - Gramvousa (would recommend the boat cruise to get there) are all within easy reach, although having a car with some ground clearence is advisable. If you can take your training shoes and you don't have very young children then also take the opportunity to travel just east of Chania and trek down the cliff to the beautiful secluded beach of Seitan Limania.

                                                                      But wherever we went, it was the perfect close to the day to come back "home" to Villa Athina and relax, enjoying the spectacular scenes from the balconies and terraces as the sun set over the bay of Kissamos-Kastelli.

                                                                      We will be back!

                                                                      The Perfect Place to Stay on Crete

                                                                      Cheryl K.

                                                                      This villa was as advertised. Honestly, I can't imagine a nicer place to stay on Crete. The architecture was stunning, the villa was clean and we appreciated the secluded location. Nonetheless, it was well-located for side trips to Chania, Samaria Gorge, Elfonisi Beach, Falasarna and even Knossos. The owner and rental agent were kind and very helpful. The weather was just turning to rain so we missed going to Balos Lagoon. I would recommend this villa to friends and family and would stay there again if I returned to Crete.

                                                                      Purer Luxus

                                                                      margit k.

                                                                      Sehr private, ruhige und wunderschöne Lage. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gehoben und modern. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind gut zu erreichen und Chania immer einen Besuch wert. Die Betreuung durch den Vermieter kann besser und netter nicht sein, wir fühlten uns sehr verwöhnt. Wir denken gerne an unseren ersten Kreta Besuch zurück und werden dieses Haus wieder buchen, den besser geht es nicht.

                                                                      Ravdoucha Village One of the most beautiful and traditional places in Chania. The village is located on a hill with the memorable view and also is very close to the beach. Ravdoucha took the name for the Greek name Ravdi, that means that the weather Ravdizei (affects a lot) all the area. The villa is located 0.5 km away from the Ravdoucha Village centre, 1.3 km from the sea and about 4 km from the national road. The nearby beach has some Greek fish tavernas, a traditional small Greek Church and also a small fishing port. In addition, the area is suitable for hiking and it is very safe.
