Chania House Rental Photos and Description

Residence provides 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sitting room, dining room, kitchen

Greek Tourist Organization MHTE 1042K91002999801

Flisvos includes one independent stone-built residence named Kochili. Residence is fully equipped and arranged on two levels on the inside. Residence provides two bedrooms (first bedroom has a double bed and the second one has two single beds, both bedrooms with a private bathroom), sitting room, dining room and a walled-in fully equipped kitchen. On the outside there are spacious yards with gardens as well as porches with a unique view to the sea.

If you like walking, you have the opportunity to try a relaxing 1.5 km walk along the beach towards Panagia Choni, where Panagia Mirtidiotisa chapel (celebrations on September 24th) is located.

The Archaeological Museum of the area is located in the capital of Kissamos province, just 5 km away.

There are daily cruises departing from Kastelli's port (7 km) for Gramvousa, where you can find the old Venetian fortress, and the breathtaking exotic beach of Balos (Tigani bay, tropic water lagoon with white-pink sand).

Just 15 km to the north west you can visit Falasarna, a long white-sand beach and an important archaeological site (ancient Falasarna). The area is a popular tourist destination.

Beautiful sunset.

Continuing south west we can find Sfinari, the beaches around Amigdalokefali and the marvellous beach of Agios Mironas. Towards the same direction and just a few kilometres away we can find Chrisoskalitisa Monastery (celebrations on August 15th), built on a rocky hill above.

Don't forget to visit Elafonisi, where you can find a unique pink sandy beach and a cedar forest (45 km).

The exceptional road network of the surrounding area offers a wide selection of destination choices covering all demands conventional or alternative, in order to explore the numerous beach sites as well as the densely populated hinterland of our prefecture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Ria and Eftichis

We've loved staying in Flisvos,listening to the sea,draw in and out,watching the sunset over the mountains and seeing the sky change constantly.We are also loved visiting and touring around Crete-what a beautiful island you live in and your children have to grow up on.

Thank for your wonderful hospitality,you're made us feel like friends and we hope we are! We've loved the little found treats you've brought us and last night BBQ was lovely too! Overvall it's magnificent week and we're very disappointed we have to leave.But we will hopefully be back soon.

Love Robbie and Lisa from England

Hi Ria, ( I am writing in german for my fellow country men)

vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit bei Euch. Alles war wunderbar: wie beschrieben auf der Webseite, nur etwas besser :) Danke auch, dass Du uns bei der späten Ankunft empfangen hast und ein paar Sachen bereit standen für Frühstück am nächsten morgen!

Toll war auch, dass jeden morgen der Bäcker vorbeikam, der Minimarkt in unmittelbarer Nähe und die nette Taverne um die Ecke (SEHR empfehlenswert). Hat uns rundum gut gefallen, hoffentlich werden wir es wiederholen.

Siggi, Ralf & the 3 kids.

PS: I hope your little pups are all healthy! The kids miss them.

Nous avons bien passé un séjour exceptionnel, dans une maison magnifique, face à un paysage extraordinaire, si près de l’eau que nous avions la sensation de vivre dans un bateau… Les couchers de soleil sur la plage changeante sont splendides… et le site est idéal pour des enfants en bas-âge car ils ont pied longtemps…

Le professionnalisme de Ria est à la mesure de sa demeure : la maison est aussi bien équipée que décorée ; à l’arrivée, Ria vous propose de quoi petit-déjeuner, du sel, de poivre, de l’huile d’olive et du Raki maison, ou encore un peu de lessive ou de liquide vaisselle… Au cours de notre séjour, elle a été aux petits soins avec nous, tout en restant très discrète : ses fameux « cleaning days » sont très appréciables, elle nous a informés sur les festivités locales, offert du raisin cueilli dans la vigne familiale ou un gâteau qu’elle a confectionné ; elle nous a même proposé une soirée barbecue pour clôturer nos vacances…

Bref, n’hésitez pas à louer la maison de Ria : vous passerez bien des vacances extraordinaires !

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location with great views of the ocean and the mountains. We stayed two weeks and we could not have been happier. The Villa was set up great, the kitchen was stocked with eveything you need for cooking. Being able to buy bread from the local bakery delivered evey morning was great.The sea side terrace was great and if it was too windy you could go the garden terrace and stay out of the wind. Ria and family were great and very helpfull even before we booked the Villa and my wife was in tears when we left. I will return and highly reccoemed this Villa.

Loved being here hate to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Villa By The Sea or Flisvos Villas is a heaven on earth. We have stayed in more than a few vacation homes and I have to tell you that this is one of if not the best. You could say this is the best kept secret in the world! Rea and her family have totally outdone themselves, their love and devotion show not only in the home but how you are welcomed with open arms and taken care of.

The home is a beautiful old but refurbished stone building, and fairly historic in itself as one of the few structures that survived the Nazis in WWII, the location is amazing with the patio steps emptying onto as close to a private beach as you can get, hardly any tourists and pretty much none that stay into the evening. But more than that is the sense of freedom, dignity and respect you feel, at least we did for two glorious weeks!

This is one of those places that you should book if you want to see Crete, and experience the Cretan lifestyle! We are already planning our return! If you book it you will cry as we did when it comes time to leave.

Flisvos is located in Nopigia, a beautiful seaside village on Kissamos bay, just 5 km east of Kastelli, the province's capital, and 30 km west of Chania, the prefecture's capital.

Ideally built on the beach front, Flisvos is part of Raisaki's fatherly residence which was founded in 1900 and recently renovated.

If you feel the need to truly relax and rest and wish to get to know - or renew your past experience - with the Cretan scenery, and its joys (people, cuisine, way of life) then your choice for summer or winter holidays will drive you to our wonderful lands. Flisvos and its hospitable owners, Ria and Eftihis, will be more than glad to meet you.
