Villa Chrissi is approved by Greek Tourism Organization with license number: 1041K91002990201.

The outdoor area attributes many furnished areas for relaxation, a barbecue with a dinning area and an enormous vegetable garden at our guests dispense!

On the ground floor of the owners house there is another 35 sq. meters ecological indoor heated swimming pool with view and direct access to the outdoor areas. The pool area has a big glass partition and when opened gives you the impression of being outside next to the outdoor dining area. In this location you can also find gym equipment and a shower.

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...

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).

magique!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Villa Chrissi is located in Gerani village, 2 km away from the beach!

Gerani is a big village near Rethymno city, where you can find traditional tavernas, shops and supermarkets. The beach of Gerani is only 2 km away. 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!

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