Chania Villa Rental Photos and Description

Located in Drapanos, 4.5km away from Almyrida resort and its sandy beach

At the ground floor, you will find the sunlit living room, the full-fitted kitchen and a WC. On the first floor, there are 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own balcony and there is also a veranda ideal for a lovely dinner, overlooking the mountains and the sea. You will also find a bathroom with shower room. On the second floor, in the eaves of the house, there is a private lounge and one more twin bedroom with a veranda that has a breathtaking view as well. It is air- conditioned.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful holiday at Markos villa, Drapanos. The villa was very clean and tidy on our arrival and we had a lovely meal waiting for us on our arrival, after a long day, it was much appreciated. The pool was cleaned regularly and the views from the villa were breathtaking. We would recommend a trip to the inland Lake. A wonderful opportunity to swim in clear, warm water and a chance to do some kyaking which we had never done before - a great experience! There were three tavernas within walking distance, we tried two and both were very nice. A shop also within walking distance which was convenient. We would recommend a car to see more of the island. Almirida was lovely, again for swimming in the clear, safe water. Thank you once again.

A lovely time!

  • 4 of 5

We were 5 people travelling to Crete - We arrived on Sunday afternoon and the owner was waiting for us at the agreed meeting point.

The owner and his wife are lovely people - The wife had prepared a huge meal for all of us, it was just great! The village is small but we were not looking for a resort to go out so it was just perfect. I would recommend this house if you are looking for a relaxing and quiet holiday.

Markos Villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderfull time at the Markos Villa. Unlike other villa's we have rented in the past it was a pleasant surprise to find simple things like coffee/sugar etc already at the villa and really appreciated the home cooked moussaka/cheese and spinach parcels!!

We would certainly recommend staying at the villa to anyone as it is in a lovely out of the way place with great views, but not too far away from places such as Kalives or Georgioupolis.

Summer 2010 at markos Villa

  • 5 of 5

Markos Villa is one of the best villas we have stayed in. It was spacious, very well equipped and the views are fantastic. Although it was very private, the local village is a two minute walk, and has two tavernas and a mini market. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Almirida is a ten minute drive and has a great beach lined with cafes and tavernas. You will need a car. I thoroughly recommend this villa!

Excellent Hilltop Villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the villa from Jun 17 to 22 2010. The house is great with 3 large bedrooms (but just 1 shared bathroom). The pool and lounge area are great. and the house has several great terraces. The house is well taken care of and the owners put some food in the fridge for us which was very good. The village in the area is nice and with a small shop. Only downsides: could be a bit windy at times due to location and there was lots of barking dogs around. But overall great house.

Markos Villa

  • 5 of 5

Your villa has been perfect for our family holiday (4 adults, 2 children) and the generous hospitality shown by the owners Michael and Maria was much appreciated, especially the delicious home cooked meal provided by Maria on our arrival, a lovely surprise.

We have enjoyed staying in Drapanos, the accommodation is of a high standard and the two youngest members of our family were delighted with the pool.

We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Markos

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank you and your family for our wonderful stay in Markos Villa! The villa is really lovely - it was really comfortable, and practical, and with such fantastic views of the countryside and mountains.

The village and landscape around the villa are stunningly beautiful. And the food that your mother cooked for us was delicious - we enjoyed it enormously, and having such beautiful home-made food prepared for us made the week very relaxing for me in particular. It was also a wonderful surprise that the villa was cleaned for us half way through our stay.

Thank you, too, for the lovely toys that you bought for the children. They really enjoyed their stay. We were all very sad to leave. We would very much like to stay in Markos Villa again, and will keep in touch with you.
