A paradise of silence and beauty.

  • 4 of 5

De locatie van deze villa is uniek. Met zicht op zee en de bergen en in volledige stilte geniet je hier van de natuur.

Het mooie zwembad, de schaduw onder de palmbomen, het degelijk uitgerust huis staan garant voor een mooi verblijf.

Vooral ook het unieke dorpje waar je in restaurants lekker kunt eten, zorgt voor een authentieke sfeer.

De bezienswaardigheden op Kreta zijn vlot bereikbaar. Op amper een uurtje ben je aan de zuidelijke Libische zee met spectaculaire verzichten.

Sommige mensen schrijven "hier komen we vast en zeker terug ".

Wij schrijven dit niet: wij kwamen er al een 2de keer en...

WOW !!! What a view

  • 5 of 5

The property is stunning. Very clean and equipped with everything we needed for our holiday stay. The beds were comfortable and the fireplace was a cosy and beautiful touch during the chilly evenings. The BBQ facilities and pool outside we also fab. The views were truly breathtaking with Snow capped mountains on one side and water views on the other. They just took our breath away as we inhaled the clear fresh air and heard the faint bells of the local goats grazing nearby. The road leading to the villa was a bit rough but you do get used to it. It added to the rural charm and privacy of the location and made us feel like we were in the the real Crete. The location was convenient to both Chania to the West and Rhethmo to the East. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable of the area and the owner made the booking process easy to use with prompt confirmations and replies to our requests. Overall, I would highly recommend this villa to my friends and family and look forward to returning for our next holiday.

Beautiful villa in an absolutely stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four that recently returned from a fantastic holiday in Crete. Our villa was simply stunning. We arrived at midnight, following fantastic directions and were very impressed with what we saw. The villa was very clean and tidy with beds were made up and ready for us. But when we opened the shutters in the morning the view took our breath away. The sun was streaming over the bay with the mountains in the backround and the tinkle of goat bells added to the moment. This was the perfect start to our holiday!

The pool was stunning very clean and pool toys available for younger children. There were plenty of sun loungers to use. The BBQ area was well equipped and the garden was well cared for and beautiful,with fruit trees everywhere.

The area is incredibly peaceful and the perfect place to relax and unwind. The local village is nearby and has good shops and restaurants. Very reasonable and fantastic food.

We ventured out daily and explored much of the area. There are numerous beaches nearby, some with tavernas along the beach and others were very quiet so the choice is yours. The local villages are so pretty and everyone we met were very friendly and lovely.

The welcome team were fantastic and at hand if we needed them. The owner has always contacted me if I had and questions.

This was our first trip to Crete and we couldn't have wished for a better start. We will definitely return.

Lovely peaceful villa with a beautiful pool

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this villa and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family. The villa and pool are just as they are presented in the photos, with both being exceptionally clean. The pool, garden and patio areas are beautiful and peaceful, a great place to relax. We all loved the pool, especially our children who would have stayed in all the time if they had their way.

The villa is well equipped with all you could need and the views are really lovely. Our favourite were the mountains behind the villa.

The location is ideal if you prefer a bit of quiet away from things and we easily walked to Kefalas with our young children where the taverna and shop are great.

There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby so there's plenty to do if you don't want to spend all the time in the pool.

The owners were really helpful answering our queries before going and provide great directions to get to the villa.

Overall a fabulous place to stay and we definitely hope to return soon.

The place to be ...

  • 5 of 5

Als ervaren huurders bij Owner's Direct hadden we het geluk alweer een prachtige locatie te ontdekken ditmaal een exclusieve villa in Kefalas. Het machtig, weids uitzicht over de zee, in combinatie met de witte bergen is inderdaad stunning! De stilte: onvergetelijk. De tuin oogt exotisch en is perfect onderhouden. Het zwembad: zalig om te dobberen en weg te dromen in het vergezicht over zee, een frisse verkoeling op deze mooie dagen.

De accommodatie is uitstekend en netjes onderhouden. Overal is er airco. De keuken is goed uitgerust. De buitenkeuken met de BBQ is ook handig. Grillen met op de achtergrond het gerinkel van de geitebellen: grappig.

Het hartelijke welkom- team Teresa en Mike begeleide ons bij aankomst en waren bereikbaar als we ze nodig hadden. Ze passeerden een keer heel snel voor een probleempje met de wifi.

Het dorpje Kefalas is een rustige oase waar de nodige essentiële bevoorrading kan gebeuren. Er zijn 2 restaurants die elk hun specialiteiten hebben. Hier proef je de Kretenzische sfeer het best. De contacten met de eigenaar Mr Logan verliepen ook in een aangename sfeer. Hij is duidelijk iemand die zeer nauwlettend toekijkt of zijn gasten het volledig naar wens hebben. Dit is een super adres waar wij alvast terugkeren!

A great villa in a nice and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the villa, we found the villa to be well appointed, having absolutely everything that we needed for our stay. A particular plus of the villa was the pool and both of our boys had this most amazing time, often playing from morning until night.

The location of the villa was perfect for us, balancing a very relaxing quiet retreat, but yet being close enough to the main roads to allow us to explore the local surrounding areas. We really liked how it had a really ‘local’ feeling, being a short journey from Kafalas, yet close enough to the more touristy resort of Georgioupoli.

We didn’t have any reason to call the welcome team during our stay, so I couldn’t comment on this aspect, but the directions and access to the villa was absolutely perfect and made our arrival and departure from the villa very simple.

The perfect place for families to stay and unwind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Pon

Good to hear from you.

We had a truly wonderful holiday - everything about it was superb.

The pool was fantastic and clean (the pool team arrived on the day we came to ensure it was clean)

The views from the balcony were incredible - we will never forget them.

The garden was in good shape although the lawn could have been mowed before we arrived but it didn't deter our enjoyment of the outside area. We really enjoyed the BBQ facilities too!

The villa was clean upon arrival so we were happy about that and the villa worked very well indeed.

Nothing to complain about - we truly had a super time!

Thank you very much and we have recommended the villa to a number of friends already! We hope to be back soon!

Thanks again for some wonderful memories made

Best regards
