What makes this villa unique

You will be sure to have an exceptional experience at Villa Chrissi:

- Great location! Close to a large village where you can find everything like shops, bakeries and taverns and also close to Rethymno town.

- Close to the best sandy beaches on the North coast, such as Episkopi and Georgioupoli beach.

- The villa is attached to the owners holiday house, but you will have access to the whole outdoor area of both houses with full privacy (owner absent during the summer months)! 

- The outside facilities like the outdoor kitchen next to the dinning area, the gardens, the infinity pool and the lounging areas with their panoramic views will remain unforgettable.

- The convenience of having both indoor and outdoor swimming pools! The indoor pool can be heated with additional fee upon request.

- The villa has a fenced farm with a horse, goats, chickens and a variety of birds. A children’s paradise they will love to play there and interact with the animals. 

- A large organized vegetable garden at your dispense. 

- Full privacy, as there are not any other houses nearby.

- You will love the owner's hospitality and his help during your holidays. During the summer various traditional cretan events and celebrations take place in the nearby villages.  If you are lucky enough to be here for one of them then you can experience these along with the owner. Further events regarding Cretan tradition are also organized by him at his own hotels (he owns two large hotels in the Rethymnon and Kavros area).  

Guestbook comments from the manager

Copied from TripAdvisor:

The villa is better than you can imagine. It's beautiful, spacy and calm. The view is astonishing.

The owners are lovely and should help you to spend good vacation in Crete.

Please notice that the pool is not really warm but it was not a problem as I like fresh waters...

A wonderful family villa with animals!

  • 5 of 5

We arrive early October and the weather was perfect everyday. The villa itself 3 bedrooms a small inside kitchen and 2 bathrooms.

We were 3 adults and two kids, ages 3 and 1. A high chair and baby cot were provided and within seconds of our arrival stair gates and a baby toilet seat were produced. This all aided in my ability to relax with a curious 1 year old!

We were given a tour of the villa and were shown to our huge outdoor kitchen and an indoor and outdoor pool. We did use both pools, the water was refreshing, but on the cool side. We didn't make as much use of the outdoor kitchen area as I would have liked. The nature of small children is really nap times and high chairs so we stayed up on the top area where the kids were easier to contain or respond too. It was a great outdoor area. I'm sure if the kids had been older we'd have used it a lot more. Having said that, apart from the last morning we had every meal outside on the terrace with amazing views out to the sea. So, It was hardly a hardship.

The villa owners kept a small number of animals and a fish pond. Every morning and evening we had to take our 3 year old to visit the animals. She just loved it. It was a nice addition especially with kids so young.

The villa was well cleaned a couple of times during our 9 days. We were home one day when the lady that came to clean arrived. She was efficient and very friendly. Making an effort to engage with the kids.

The villa is located near a supermarket and a nice bakery which did fresh bread. A 10 minute drive down the road was a small beach in a protected cove. The water was a good temperature for swimming and we managed to go at low tide each time we went. Perfect for the kids, although we did also manage a bit of swimming ourselves. Right next to the beach is a taverna. The food was good and all local food. Friendly owner.

We did a day trip to Chania, the parking was challenging, but the old town was beautiful. It was about an hour to get home. We also attempted Knossos a different day. It was only 1.5 hours, but too much for the kids. My favourite was Rethymon. The fortress and old town were nice the food was good, lots of shaded places to escape the direct sun.

One evening we managed to get the kids to sleep and left uncle in charge, Sophia booked us a taxi and restaurant. On the water front in rethymon. Just magical.

I would highly recommend to families. Crete is wonderful.

Nice view

  • 4 of 5

The property is well-suited for four persons. The view is great and the town that is close by (Rhetymnon) is a beautiful city. The landlord and the landlady which live in the same house are very, very friendly and give good recommendations.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We spent wonderful time at the Villa Chrissi !

Very quiet, wonderful view, all is very clean (house cleaning 2-3 times/week).

Very friendly welcome by the owners who give us a lot of information to make our stay comfortable.

There are many restaurants (delicious food and not expensive) in the neighbourhood. Little supermarkets, bakeries, butcher’s shop, cheese shop, … : we found all what we needed (car is necessary).

For children : little space into the outside swimming pool, stairs to go down in both swimming pools, the domain is closed by an electric door, some animals (birds, horse, goats).

Excellent administrative follow up.

We recommend this villa without any hesitation.

Perfect hillside getaway

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Crete in early May, the group was composed of three adults and a 5year-old.

Villa Chrissi is everything in the description and even more. It is situated in a remote area off the main road (but not too far away from it and well locatable due to carefully positioned signs) and even off the village of Gerani, just 10-15 minutes drive away from Rethymnon. The view is very nice and it is quiet.

The estate itself is very clean, pretty new and well-kept. It is a nicely composed ensemble of inhouse bed rooms and living room/kitchen, indoor pool and gym room, outside terraces and infinity pool, the horse's stable and the parts used by the owners for themselves. Doris and Manolis, the owners, stick to themselves, however; there is bigger or smaller interference for the guests and you will not even realize that they are there on most days unless of course you want to talk to them. They are very kind and helpful and helped us out with a lot of valuable information as well as some groceries.

The setup of Villa Chrissi is very well thought through. At each time of day you will find a place with sun (or shadow) in the wind or protected from it and you will find everything you need in the house; sometimes even twice since there is a fully equipped second kitchen right at the lower terrace. For us, the outside kitchen and bar was the center of of our daily activities from breakfast until dinner - certainly a place to remember. Just like the infinity pool which offered refreshment on the hotter days.

Rethymnon and the villages near Villa Chrissi have a lot of restaurants so there is absolutely no need to cook; if you want to, however, (and we wanted to) there are plenty of shops a short drive away in the village and at the Rethymnon Intersection and a well sorted butcher's shop in Atsipopoulo (try his chicken and lamb!). We never made it to the street markets but were still able to buy fresh food of all kinds at good prices.

I would definitely recommend Villa Chrissi, it is perfect for groups of 4-6 of all ages (despite maybe teenagers and party-seekers).

Inoubliables vacances dans cette magnifique villa! Nous étions 7 personnes(4 adultes et 3 enfants) à partager cette villa avec un confort exceptionnel.

Si vous passez vos vacances en Crète, inutile de chercher une autre adresse que celle-ci! Tout y était, la vue incroyable, l'espace extérieur à couper le souffle, mais le plus important pour nous était la rencontre de Doris et Manolis, les propriétaires de cette villa, qui feront de vos vacances un véritable rêve, tant leur accueil est chaleureux! Encore un grand MERCI!

Also in a distance of 7 km (5 min) you will find the beach of Petres and 8 km away is the long sandy beach of Episkopi! The beach of Episkopi is 10 km long and goes until the village of Georgioupoli. Many beaches around are organised with beach bars and lifeguards. Gerani village is a great spot if you want to stay in a village and also be near to everything!
