Eleftheria Ntaoukaki (owner) purchased this villa in 2013
We have a great experience in renting houses for holidays but this one was the best we ever lived in. We were 6 adults and one baby. The extra studio is perfect if there is a baby with you one holiday. The hirer where wonderful - no wish remained unfulfilled. The villa was very clean as well as the swimming pool. The sea is just a few meters away. The beach is clean and off the beaten tourist track. There are a few nice greek restaurants in the neighbourhood. I would absolutely recommend it.
This is an absolutely gorgeous property, impeccably maintained, in a beautiful location. The villa itself is well designed, with wonderful views, and it includes many porches and terraces from which to enjoy the Mediterranean breezes and wonderful view of the bay. The kitchen is well equipped, and the town of Kissamos, five minutes down the road by car, offers a grocery store and restaurant that make it easy to stock the kitchen. And if you don't feel like cooking, there are two tavernas within walking distance. The yard is beautifully landscaped, and the pool area features comfortable seating. There is a beach right outside the villa that slopes gently into a picturesque bay.
The owner, Eleftheria, went the extra mile to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. One night, she even brought us a wonderful home-cooked meal, and a cake to help us celebrate our anniversary!
The property is in a nice location, on the northwest coast. It is only a 45-minute drive to the picturesque town of Chania. We also recommend taking a drive along the wild western coast of Crete (which is easy to do from this location) to the famous pink sand beach of Elafonisi. The coastal road is one of the most beautiful drives we've ever taken. Be warned, though -- spending time at this villa is so enjoyable, that you may find yourself cutting back on your touring plans in order to spend more time here!
We had an absolutely fantastic week at Villa Elvina and would eagerly return. We were 4 adults and 2 toddlers (both between 2 and 3 years old), and we were absolutely spoiled for space (we had initially planned to also have one further couple with their toddler, and the amount of indoor and outdoor communal space would have worked very well for that too).
Our experience was top-notch largely because of Eleftheria's fantastic responsiveness and attention to detail. She was very quick at responding to all queries, both before and during the holiday, and was a fantastic source of tips and advice on local beaches, restaurants and sights. She was also very happy to stock us up with Day-1 basics in accordance with a pre-travel list that we'd sent along, and was extremely kind and generous throughout the trip with little bits and pieces of local Cretan fare. Such a wonderful host!
The house itself is also exceptional. Extremely clean, extremely spacious, great stock of kid-friendly toys and supplies (ie plastic dishes and cutlery, potty, high-chairs, baby towels etc). Landscaping is beautifully done, and the views down to the sea and across to the mountains were lovely.
We didn't do a ton of exploring (two beach days, one morning in Chania, one afternoon nearby at Wave on the Rocks and a few trips to nearby Kissimos), as the kids were overjoyed to just play in the kids pool and on the lawn. It's a quiet, relaxing and peaceful place, with a great high-end feel based on all of Eleftheria's well-thought-out touches. Couldn't recommend highly enough!
Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in your beautiful villa.
By now another family will be starting their vacation and we are now safely back in the UK.
We have stayed in a lot of villas over the years and yours is the best for so many reasons
The thought you have put into providing child friendly equipment and amenities
The kindness you have shown us by your attention to service and help
The gifts you added for our enjoyment
The energy you gave in making sure we had the best holiday possible
Thank you very much Eleftheria. We will not forget you or your lovely home
With very best wishes
Me and my husband always wanted to visit Crete as my sister went there a few years back and she had a lovely time, but we were waiting for the kids to grow up a bit so they can come along in the flight with no drama. It took us a while to find a place to suit our needs in terms of space and location.
People in Crete are excellent, very friendly and helpful from the very first moment. Villa Elvina was in my opinion the best option around. The facilities are immaculate, loads of space for the kids to play inside and outside, but also a stylish and extremely spacious contemporary villa. It is remarkable how they mixed the modern with the most traditional local architectural style. You have the option to stay in and play in the swimming pools (yes, two of them) or if you decide to go to the seaside it is within walking distance. Food and in general all the local products are from another world, we couldn’t stop eating. Chania is also a lovely city, very vibrant and lively with numerous options for dinner or a relaxed drink somewhere quiet with the kids, we didn’t visit any nightclubs, those days are way gone !!!!. Prices are extremely down to earth for what you get in both terms of space and service. We met Eleftheria and Michael there, the lovely couple running the villa. They had arranged our transportation from the airports requested and as a lovely surprise a huge dinner was waiting for us upon arrival followed by a bottle of red wine from Michael’s personal collection, we were speechless .They both gave us the impression that it is their mission to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Very attentive and friendly ,our kids still talking about both of them using their first names. I actually feel that I can keep going on and on and for that reason I will stop here.I honestly took my time with my husband to find something negative or maybe not so good if you wish but there is nothing there. I wish we get the opportunity to visit again.
I really hope you find this helpful .
Villa super équipée et idéalement située pour visiter la région. A quelques minutes en voiture des plus belles plages de Crêtes. Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour grâce aux attentions ( Gatêau, capsules Nespresso,Vin,...) et bons plans (Plages, Montagnes, ballades,...) des propriétaires.La villa est a quelques minutes des commerces. mes enfants ont pu profiter du grand et beau jardin, piscine, jacuzzi et des différents jeux sur place. En une phrase :What else?
We've rented many villa's on HomeAway and Villa Elvina is hands down our favorite. It's location on Crete is ideal. Close to some of the best beaches in the Greek Isles - Elafonisi, Falassarna, and Bolas. A short drive to markets and restaurants. Located right on Drapanias beach, which is a nice quiet beach with incredible mountain views.
The villa is furnished with top of line furniture, which is extremely comfortable. A great place to retreat after a long day exploring the island. Truly a home away from home.
Only 25 minutes drive away from Chania through the national road of Chania-Kissamos, it is located the village of Drapanias. It is surrounded by the capes Gramvousa and Spatha of Kissamos bay of the Cretan sea in the Western Crete, only a few meters away from Nopigia village and 3 km away from the town of Kastelli where you will find everything you need: Health Center, Pharmacies, Medical Offices, Super Markets, Bakeries, Cleaners/Ironers, Gas Stations, Post Offices, Banks with ATM.
Drapanias village is both a coastal and a mountain village.
In the mountainous part of the village, with a population of approximately 500 residents, there are picturesque narrow streets and beautiful churches where you will enjoy stunning views. In the village, you can buy goods from grocery stores and mini markets or you can go to traditional restaurants and coffee shops.
A delightful, fully of groves, path leads you to the coastal part of the village, Drapanias. Pure and unchanged from the mass tourism, Drapanias beach, is a good chance to swim in a clean sea (which has already been proposed for blue flag), to relax and enjoy your sunbathing in a calm environment or you may just cross the beach by picking up pebbles and breathing the breeze of the sea.
In addition, Drapanias beach is the suitable place for those of you who love to go for fishing. You can rent a boat under the directions of a local fisherman and go for fishing in Ravdouchas bay. It is also the ideal place for wind-surfers.
You can also go for cruise and swimming in Balos, via the Kastelli port, or you can go for excursions to the famous beaches of Falasarna and Elafonisi.
Alternatively, in Drapanias beach, you may enjoy your sunbathing in a more cosmopolitan environment with deckchairs and umbrellas or even you may visit its coffee shops and its traditional restaurants with a variety of flavours from Cretan kitchen.
