This sparkling villa is well-named. Experience the joy of staying here in Chania, minutes from the heart of town and the golden sand beaches of the west coast of Crete. Exclusive style, sophisticated architecture and enviable service may make it challenging for you to leave your comfortable and idyllic surroundings to discover all the island has to offer. Located at the top of a hill, the villa is built in five semi-levels sparing no luxury. On the outside, the aquamarine private pool is surrounded by a lush garden looking out to the view of the town and glistening sea.

The poolside and garden offer spots of cool shade and radiant light, as well as privacy and panoramic views.

A series of tended terraces lead up the hilly landscape to the house and pool. The living and dining areas exude sleek simplicity. And the dcor throughout is calming with splashes of vibrant color to bring it to life.

The house was perfect, the experience was perfect, the opportunity to bring the family together for a reunion but still gave us all our own space ensured we all enjoyed each other's company and relaxed in the numerous areas of the house. Cooking breakfast outside endured every meal was social. This was the perfect location to celebrate Easter with local chefs preparing our lunch. There is plenty to see in Crete but also plenty to stay in for at the Villa Joy.
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable. La villa était très confortable et très ludique pour les enfants.
Facilities excellent. The images provided where a true reflection of what the villa is in reality. Communications throughout the booking, journey and onsite support made the whole experience relaxing and enjoyable. Access to local taverna and mini-market (5 minutes walk) convenient although we did not need to buy much for breakfast and lunch as the welcome pack was enormous and well selected. Evening meals were taken in the main town with a variety of eating places, suiting all culinary tastes and pockets. The walk to town is all downhill but taxi is recommended for the return, good value for money and if you are not sure where to go, eat later in your stay and ask the driver to recommend, it never failed. We would recommend very highly Emerald Hotel in Plaka for at least one dinner, superb views and sunsets. Good food and an excellent wine list and prices to reflect!
Everything was perfect.The villa was really well appointed.We were met by the owner and given lots of information about the area and were made to feel very welcome.
The welcome pack was just what we needed to get started and even the bathrooms had Korres products in them [ I'm a fan now!].
The local taverna made us most welcome and the food was very good.There was also a local shop within walking distance for any basics .
Hania is an exciting place .We feel there is lots more to see so will have to return.
The beaches to the south of the island are spectacular,some of the best we have seen.
Crete has something for everyone.
We hired a car and managed to see quite a bit of this beautiful place.
All in all a wonderful holiday.Luxury Retreats were very efficient and we were very well looked after.I would have no problem recommending them to others and the Villa Joy which lived up to its name.It was pure joy staying in it.
The Villa joy is well situated to allow for convenient access to all that is avalable in Crete. A 1 hour drive in assorted directions will send you to a new beach, intersting villlage, or hiking site. The highway system is very well structured. Villa Joy is a tremendous property and easy to live in. A 12 day stay is just about the right amount of time to really get to see the sites within 60 miles, and stilll have time for relaxation to enjoy all of the amenities of the house. The house is well designed to provide privacy to all of the bedrooms, and its a solid home. Spectaculra sea views due to the elveation of the home and multiple large balconies. The proximity (10 minute drive) to the city center of Chania provided easy access to dozens of restaurants and shops to browse. In conclusion, i dont think i could have imagined our vacation being any better or more smooth than what we expereinced. it was flawless.
The house was absolutely gorgeous and upon arrival, we really enjoyed the welcome package the welcoming host! The map, and the nice introduction was really helpful and we absolutely loved the house itself and all it's amenities. This is a gorgeous find!
