We had a wonderful stay at Villa Konstantina. The villa is comfortable and well equipped, and the service from Agni impeccable. The owner Stratos was very friendly and keen to help if we had any problems, he even bought us a free meal at his Taverna in Rhetymno. The view from the villa is spectacular and it’s only a 15min walk to Aptera where there are a choice of Delightful tavernas, we ate there most days. We would be happy to stay here again. Crete is a beautiful island, especially in the western part. Kalyves was one on the best beaches we have ever visited and would recommend that to anyone. There are a choice if bars and restaurants, and doesn’t appear to be a charge for use of the sun beds and parasols. Driving is a bit tricky as there doesn’t appear to be any rules for overtaking, people casually cross double white lines to overtake, in in the face of oncoming traffic. It’s necessary to pull right over to all overtaking traffic to pass. The weather was glorious for most of time although we had some rain and high winds during October. Maybe April and May are better for out if season travellers.

Perfect Base for Touring the East Side of Crete
Everything at Villa Konstantina was as described, or better! The local tavernas were exceeding friendly and the fare was all delicious. Parking for a Doblo was VERY tight but probably OK for a small car. Best to love cats... there are many semi-wild cats and kittens about! The gardens are lovely and well cared for, as is the swimming pool. We would highly recommend this villa.
Weeks break in Crete
Overall the property is in a good location, slightly off the beaten track around 20-25 minutes from the centre of Chania.
The villa is starting to look slightly tired which at the start of a season may be commented on by other customers. In terms of facilities, everything works however during our stay there were only 2 of us, if the place was accomodating 6 then there would be a shortage of plates/cuttlery etc (example no cereal bowls for childern etc).
That said we had a lovely time, the villa was absolutely fine (we've stayed in a lot across Europe so comments are by comparison) - I would comment on the lady cleaning the villa who was a star and for which nothing was too much trouble!
I'd recommend this villa as a good place to stay, local facilities within a short drive or longer walk, all in god value for the stay.

Great holiday. Couldnt fault cleaner who regularly attended and offered change of towels/bedding etc and Property Management company dealt with power outage within a few hours. Agni Travel were also fantastic helping us resolve wifi issue we experienced.
The villa is ideally located between Chania and Kalyves, in the pretty village of Megala Chorafia.
Megala Chorafia is a traditional and peaceful hamlet, set on a thyme covered hillside with stunning views across the sea and just a 5 minute drive to the beautiful Kalami beach. The delightful 'platia', offering a few traditional tavernas and kafenions for drinks and snacks is a great place, day and night, to sample local food, wine and culture.
