2 Week Summer Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a family 2 week holiday in Crete and stayed at the Xristina apartments. It was perfect! We had the sea view apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well sized and had a wonderful sea view.

Xristina and her husband were available if needed and often dropped products from their farm. The location of the apartment was ideal and we will definitely be staying here again.

This holiday was our 7th year visiting Crete and we found the location and apartment perfect for what we wanted from the holiday.

Excellent holiday, excellent apartment, excellent location.

Great apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two young sons and I had a great time at Xristina's apartment. We had the one overlooking the sea, and it was clean, modern with a beautiful view. The rooftop terrasse is also amazing: 360 degree view of sea, mountain and villages. When we were 'home' for dinner we always ate up there! Xristina and her husband Stavros were welcoming. We needed to get a few essentials on arrival (dish brush, dish soap, etc.), but there was a store within walking distance where we were able to get everything. We never had any trouble parking right in front.

Kolymbari is a cute, quiet village (we especially enjoying walking in the back streets after dinner) and a great base for exploring the Chania area (Chania, Elafonisi beach, mountain villages...). We would definitely stay there again!

Great apartment in a fascinating location

  • 5 of 5

Xristina's Apartments has two first-floor apartments in the same property: we had the one with a north-facing balcony overlooking (and only a few metres from) the sea (the other apartment is south-facing, overlooking a small square and main street into Kolymbari).

The two-bedroomed (one double, one twin) apartment was spacious, very clean and comfortable, with good wi-fi access and satellite TV that has hundreds of channels, include some English-language. The view from the balcony was outstanding: spanning the small harbour to the west and the beach extending east towards Chania.

Xristina and husband Stavros were very welcoming, providing fruit, olive oil and raki from their own farm, and also were able to provide local car hire and lots of information about the surrounding area.

Kolymbari is a small, very friendly village, a little run-down in places but with enough restaurants and bars to offer a good choice, even early in November (in Crete, many places close for the winter at the end of October). It has a busy fishing harbour, so there is plenty of exceedingly-fresh fish available, as well as fresh local fruit and vegetables. It is authentically-Cretan, not a plastic tourist strip.

Kolymbari is an excellent base for exploring this north-west part of Crete. The Rodopos peninsula is very near and has a wild, isolated, rocky landscape that is a real experience to explore (4-wheel drive recommended!). The Gamvrousa peninsula, also close, leads to the outstandingly-beautiful beach of Balos, surely one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (and also accessible by boat from Kissamos harbour).

Inland there are some excellent places to hike (e.g. the Delfina gorge or along the coast to the village of Afrata, both with tavernas serving excellent food to reward the effort of finding them).

Historically the area around Kolymbari is very interesting, not least for its role in the 1941 Nazi paratroop invasion of Crete (the Maleme airfield some 3 km east of the village was one of the main drop-zones, and historians argue that a failure to defend it adequately was the main reason why the main Allied forces were driven, temporarily, from the island).

Our stay in Xristinas Apartments was great. The entire setting provides an authentic Cretan experience and, though it might not be 'luxury' for whoever expects 'The Ritz', it definitely is so for those with the curiosity to see, explore and enjoy the culture of a wonderful island.

Just in front of the sea

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from our 10 day stay in Kolymbari at Xristina’s house, situated just near the beach. The appartment is comfortable, spacious, clean and well equipped. There is a balcony just in front of the sea where you can relax. We enjoyed spending our evenings there, with little shots of homemade raki provided by Xristina (just like homemade jams, fresh fruit, and vegetables from her own garden). On the rooftop of the house there is a very comfortable solarium. The beach is very close, and the sea very clean. In the surrondings, there are some taverns, where you can taste excellent local food.

The owner Xristina, together with her husband Stavros, are very good hosts. They are extremely kind and always provided us with friendly support throughout our stay.

From the town of Kolymbari you can reach the most beautiful places of the region: beaches like Balos, Elafonissi, Falassarna, the Samaria gorges and Hanià.

Overall it was a beautiful holiday.

Отличные апартаменты на берегу моря.

  • 5 of 5

Прекрасные апартаменты прямо на берегу моря. В небольшом уютном поселке. Идеальное место для для отдыха и осмотра достопримечательностей восточно части острова Крит. Представленные описание соответствуют действительности. У хозяйки в доме двое апартаментов, одни с видом на море, вторые с видом на дорогу. Терраса на третьем этаже с лежаками, зонтами и местом для барбекю. Мебель хорошая, есть все для самостоятельной готовки, если не хотите готовить в шаговой доступности большой выбор ресторанов со свежими морепродуктами. Хозяйка раз в три дня хозяйка меняла полотенца и в середине срока нашего пребывания сменила постельное белье.

Гостеприимная хозяйка, всегда готова ответить на любые вопросы по телефону или почте.

Единственный недостаток задумчивый интернет.

Great apartment. Great vacation. Thx very much Xristina.

Perfekt für ruhigen Urlaub auch ohne Auto direkt am Strand

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Wohnung (Aphrodite/Seesicht) sauber und sehr ordentlich vorgefunden. Die Wohnungsübergabe klappte problemlos wie verabredet. Die Gastgeber waren ausgeprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Bustation (50 m), Supermarkt, Arzt und Apotheke sind in Fussdistanz erreichbar. Die Wohnung liegt am Anfang der Promenade mit mehreren netten Restaurants. In einer Minute ist man ebenfalls am Steinstrand. Im Wasser erreicht man nach ca. 2 m Kiesel herrlichen Sand (in ca .1.20 Wassertiefe). Das Meer wird schnell tief und wir hatten oft Wind und Wellen. Die Wasserqualität (meist klar, sonst trüb mit manchmal Treibmüll) ändert sich mit der Windrichtung. Das Wasser war angenehm warm. Durch den Wind war die Hitze (Jul/Aug 2016) gut zu ertragen. Die Klimaanlage in der Wohnung funktionierte gut und war nicht zu laut. Die beiden Schlafzimmer haben ein gemeinsames Oberlicht, das geöffnet werden kann, um die Luft zirkulieren zu lassen. Die Meeresbrandung übertönte die Geräusche von den Restaurants im Erdgeschoss. Wir hatten zwei schöne Ferienwochen zu viert und können die Wohnung gern weiter empfehlen.
