Lovely house. Modern, good swimmingpool and good wifi. A lot of privacy. Nice beaches and cities not to far away.
We loved our stay at this fantastic modern villa.
The villa has everything you could wish for and the owners and other contacts were very helpful from start to finish. Small touches like gifts on arrival made our holiday extra special. The property even has it's own app which was really useful to see more shots of the villa and find out about the local area.
The property is very spacious inside and out and the pool and house are extremely well maintained.
The view from the living space and patio is simply stunning as the pictures show.
Towels and bedding were changed half way through our stay and the owner even installed a brand new boiler as there'd been a minor problem with hot water on one day. You can't beat that for good service!
A car is needed to access the property as its a 5 min drive from the nearest town which does have everything you could need, including supermarkets and some lovely restaurants. Just be careful using a sat nav as occasionally it tried to take us down roads which really weren't meant for a car!
There is a narrow lane running down the side of the property which is used by other local residents, and the property's fence doesn't offer full privacy to people driving past, but we didn't find this to be an issue.
If you are looking for somewhere to relax in luxury with easy access to great food and beaches then we can't recommend Villa Veni enough.
Thank you all. X
Pure relaxation...Villa Veni surpassed our expectations in every way.
Villa Veni is without doubt the best place we have stayed during our many holidays in the Greek islands.
Being in our later years we always book villas of extremely high standard, Villa Veni surpassed our expectations. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped.
Every detail, inside and out, is maintained to the highest standard and the whole villa was immaculately clean. No creepy crawlies and for the first time for us in Greece no mosquitoes!
We all slept well from the first night as the villa was so quiet and my pet hate...no cockerels waking me up.
The wifi was good for the whole 2 weeks stay. The air conditioning throughout cooled the villa down instantly when needed.
The setting is perfect; blissfully peaceful with lovely views, and yet within easy reach of local shops, restaurants and beaches, providing you have a car.
Relaxing in the infinity-pool at sunset was sublime. Watching swallows swoop down over the water is the kind of experience holiday memories are made of.
The owners, George and Mary Ellen, are truly delightful; genuinely friendly and hospitable, whilst also polite and respectful, making a real difference to the overall holiday experience. We are so pleased we accepted their kind offer of an authentic Cretan evening. We left feeling like we were leaving old friends.
The villa is located in a beautiful part of the island. Beaches of all kinds, from large popular stretches of golden sand like Elafonísi to tiny deserted rocky bays with the clearest of water for great snorkelling, are all within easy reach by car.
There are also some stunning drives through the nearby mountains and gorges, which are not to be missed.
The small local town of Kolymvari (10 minutes drive) has all the necessary shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. We particularly liked Palio Arhintiko where the food and service was excellent.
The old-town quarter in Chania (30 minutes drive) is also worth a day's exploring for its many shops, cafes, and restaurants.
Villa owner George is only too happy to recommend great places to go and things to see.
In all, a place we would fully recommend to you and our friends. We have never gone back to the same place twice as there is so much of the world to see but this is a very special place and we very much hope to visit Villa Veni again.
One word: PERFECT!
Really a wonderful place!!!!! The owners are so kind! The house's lovely decorated and offers everything you need, even more. All around the villa, there's a beautiful landscape, so quiet, and only 8-10 minutes to the sea and the village. With our 3 teenagers, we visited the island in the day and were happy to come back in this paradise every evening! The only thing less pleasant is the road (2h30 from Heraklion's airport). If possible, better to land in Chania (only 30 minutes).
Immaculate villa and crystal clean pool
Near to lovely beaches and mountains. Not far from shops and the village of Kolymbari and with easy access to the main road to Chiania. The pool and villa are maintained to the highest standard. And the owners are lovely People! The fresh vegetables from the garden were a nice touch. It was also great that the pool was cleaned...
A perfect week away at Villa Veni
We have just arrived back from a week at Villa Veni and genuinely did not want to leave! Crete is a place we love and try to visit every year and yet again it didn't let us down. The villa is an easy drive from Chania airport and is set in stunning countryside with a very private outlook. We were expecting a beautiful villa from the pictures/website and it actually exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival you could tell the how much love and attention to detail George and his wife Mary Ellen have put into the villa, it is stunning. The villa is in such perfect condition with everything you could possibly need - I think the fact that this was built as a home rather than just a rental property makes all the difference as things like the kitchen are so well equipped and it has been finished to a very high standard. George the owner was waiting for us when we arrived with the food/drinks we had pre-ordered and showed us around the villa etc, they even met up with us for dinner in Chania Town and took us to a beautiful restaurant which we really enjoyed and appreciated they were fantastic company and great hosts.
In terms of the location of the villa it was ideal for us, you are only a 5-10 minute drive to Kolymbari where there is an excellent butcher, patisserie, supermarket and choice of places to eat. We had a fantastic meal in Diktina and would recommend it to anyone. It is also worth noting that there is taxi firm in Kolymbari, we only noticed on the last night, had we have known earlier we would definitely have booked a taxi when we went into town for a meal rather than taking the car.
We can't wait to go back, it was just what we needed and exceeded our expectations in every way. This is the second booking I have made through Kostas at Etouri/Homeaway and his service was excellent yet again, very professional, well organised and keeps in touch every step of the way from the enquiry/booking stage to the end of your holiday. We booked a car from a company recommended by Kostas (Arkadi) and they were great too. Thank you George and Mary Ellen for letting us stay in your wonderful home and being such great hosts and Kostas and Sophia for your great customer service. Hopefully we can book again for next year soon. Clare, Damien and Lauryn.
The whole surrounding area is in a quiet natural environment and even though the living areas are close, you can feel “away from it all”!
The villa is located in a totally private area, on the outskirts of a very small village called Veni. The village is between the seafront village of Kolymvari and the small town of Kissamos (Kasteli). There is nothing that you cannot find in Kissamos nowadays, as it has all kinds of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, many restaurants and services.
In Kolymvari village which is only 4 km away, you will find a lovely beach, ideal for families and children. It also has few shopping stores, very good restaurants and tavernas and a few cafeterias. If you search for good entertainment, beach bars with daily parties, huge nightclubs and a variety of restaurants, then we suggest you to visit Platanias and Agia Marina area which is 20 minutes drive from our villa!
The closest beaches to the villa that we suggest you visit are:
The long sandy beach of Kolymvari which is 4 km away. The sandy beach of Kasteli which is 7 km away and the beach of Kaliviani which is 15 km away on the West. In the same direction you will be able to visit some of the most famous beaches in the whole Greece!
One of them is Falassarna beach (25 km away). Elafonissi beach with the pink sand which is about 50 km away and Gramvousa-Balos beach where you can visit by ferry from Kissamos town.
Furthermore it is a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only 2 minutes away.
Staying in our villa will give you not only the advantage of relaxing in a quiet private area but also be close 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").
