Excellent location, nice house and fantastic beach

  • 4 of 5

excellent location, a nice view and the house in line with description. This place is just near a very nice beach, with good services and not so many tourists around. The house was very clean and well maintained during our stay. The swimming pool is large enough and clenaed every day. EPISKOPI is just 3 km away, with supermarket and a couple of restaurants.The only negative is that a car is needed to go to the beach(free and easy parking) as the pedestrian way is too abrupt to be used with a family.

Lovely views of the nearby beach

  • 3 of 5

Lovely owner who was very friendly and helpful despite the language barrier. The villa is very close to the beach and the views are amazing. There isn't that much room around the pool and if you like late evening sunshine you'd be disappointed. But the rooms are good each with an en suite and the nearby beach is lovely and has a couple of bars / tavernas. It was good value for money too.

Wunderbar, herrlich, sehr entspannt und ruhig!!!

  • 5 of 5

Es war einfach perfekt. Haus ordentlich mit genug Platz. Der Pool ist ein Traum. Ausblick wunderschön. Grill im Garten. Alles vorhanden. 10 Minuten runter zum Strand. Kostas steht immer für Fragen und Probleme zur Verfügung und man kümmert sich recht schnell um Sachen. Wir waren vor 3 Jahren schon mal in der Villa nebenan, auch sehr empfehlenswert. Abschalten und genießen!!!

Our villas are in one of the best locations for vacation in the whole Crete and we can assure you that! In only 150 m away from the front of the villas, you can find the one of the best sandy beaches of the north coast, the beach Episkopi, which is 10 km long and was named after the village (Episkopi), which is only 1.5 km away from our villas.

The sea in this area is regarded to be the cleanest and most beautiful on the north coast. Even in the high summer season, you can easily find a secluded spot on your own or a strip with sun beds and parasols, if that is what you prefer. There are several taverns and beach bars directly on the beach, which they all are very popular to the locals and they are quite lively during the week-ends.

The village of Episkopi has many shops, traditional taverns, cafes and some supermarkets for your supplies!

As it is in the good location, you can visit Rethymno city in less than 10 min or Chania city, which is about 30 min away!

It will be our pleasure to provide you with all the information that you might need for the area, where to eat or where to shop and what you should visit!

Nearby sightseeing spots that you should visit are :

Argiroupoli village: In a distance of 7 km is Argiroupoli, a well-known village for the small spring waterfalls and the amount of the great, traditional taverns under the big trees! It is built on a 260 m altitude on the foot of Azonas hill and it has view on the lush green and flourishing valley of Mouselas River, whose 10 rich springs are 50 meters underneath the village.

In a distance of 10 km from the villas is the only natural freshwater lake in Crete, Kournas Lake was known as Lake Koressia in antiquity but later took its current name from the Arabic word for lake.

Georgoupolis village is 7km away from the villas, on the way to Chania. Formerly a small fishing village, Georgioupolis is rather a tourist town now with many cafes, taverns and small hotels and apartment blocks. The town square is surrounded by outdoor seating used by tourists enjoying their drinks and ice creams. The 9 km beach is the main attraction of the area, with Kalyvaki beach on the other side of the river as well.

It will be our pleasure to provide you all the information that you might need about the area, where to eat or from where to shop and what you have to visit!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on Homeaway affiliate websites, depending on their categorized locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
