Villa in Chamalevri, Rethymnon, Crete, Greek Islands - Peaceful Location, 15 Mins Walk To The Beach
Aisling villa is located away from the bustle of the tourist areas but still within 15 mins travelling time if you wish to visit. Hamalevri boasts a local Kafeneon called Romeo and Juliet Meze Bar, serving a wide range of good food all day. There is a small shop in the next village Asteri (5 min walk)where you can get the essentials. Asteri also boasts a museum Taverna and a kafenion (greek pub). Outside living is part of the experience on Crete and we have a 9m x 4m private pool and sun bathing areas with a number of sun loungers and umbrellas. Beside the pool is a covered pergola with associated barbecue area which has an additional small gas cooker to meet all cooking requirements.
We have lemon trees growing in the garden and it is something else to pick a fresh lemon for your gin and tonic.
Aisling Villa is surrounded by beautiful views and walks

About Carol Ewings
Hello, John and I have been travelling to Crete since 1990 and so loved the island that we decided to buy a house there in 2002. We have made the property as private as possible while still allowing views of the surrounding area. It is equally suitable for older couples (like ourselves) or young families. The name of the house - " Aisling"- is Irish for dream or vision, and as it fulfilled our dream we thought it was very apt,and are sure the visitor will not be disappointed
Carol Ewings purchased this Bungalow in 2002
Why Carol Ewings chose Chamalevri
We love this area because it is far enough away from the bustle of the busy resorts to offer peace and tranquility, but is also close enough for ease of access to shops, tavernas and beaches.

Lovely quiet villa with its own pool
In a quiet village but with a great meze bar up the road and a supermarket within walking distance but just a short drive to the sea. Had everything we wanted and the welcome pack was a really nice touch. Would definitely return!
Thank you very much Matt! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

Very nice place for a perfect holiday
Perfect house, we found everything as described. Probably the best equipped holiday home we ever had.
We had a warm welcome with some basic foods. The communication with the owners was very good and the local assistance as well.
Overall it was a perfect holiday and we would definitely recommend it!
Lo vely villa. Good quality with air con and a wall mounted bug zapper! Great swimming pool
The villa has everything needed and is well laid out. Comfortable and relaxing. Owners provided a welcome pack. There is a choice of ceiling fans and/or Air con and has a built in bug zapper The swimming pool is lovely and clean (it was even cleaned half way through our one week stay! ) with a choice of seating and loungers for sun or shade. Just up the road is a great Mezze bar serving high quality and good value food and drink. Highly recommend this villa. Also recommend having a car with sat nav if you like to explore further afield or are travelling to the villa at night. (We had a late flight) Owners directions include pictures but of course it doesn't look the same in the dark!
This villa has everything, no really it does!
Pleasant little villa, georgous pool and grounds in a sleepy little village. Its not to far from everything but you do need a car. Carol the owner has the wonderful idea of letting people leave surplus things rather than having the cleaners throw away and as a result there isnt anything weird or wonderful that you cannot find in this villa. Keep this going for others guys! Wifi is now available for a small charge and is very fast. Local restaurants are a dream come true of friendly people and wonderful food. Butterfly's, lizards & birds and other flaura and fauna make the gardens wonderful to be in. 100% recommended
Thank you very much Ron, we are so pleased you liked everything! Everything you say about the people us so true! That's why we have a house there.

Crete is great very welcoming and the weather was perfect (Hot) and costs very reasonable. The Villa is a traditional rustic villa with a refreshing pool and outdoor living area which was very nice. the inside of the villa had the home comforts of being in the UK and the air con a must, the villa was in a scenic location peacful and private but within a 5 to 10 min drive to the coastal resorts. Overall enjoyed the holiday, the villa was clean, Steve who looks after the villa was polite and very helpfully. First time vistit to Crete and "I would return tomorrow" especially this villa...
thank u very much
Carol let me say a big thank you ,we had a truly wonderful holiday at your villa.It was everything we expected and more besides.The villa is located in a very private setting with beautiful mature garden.We got a welcome pack which was very helpful so following some recommendations we visited a varied selection of tavernas ,restraunts and places of interest.There was so much to see and do so we were out in the car for the most of the day making some effort to get back before night for a swim in the pool.It was one of the best holidays so far so we hope to be back in Crete in the future at Aisling villa.Carol thank you very much for your kindness and all the best,Beata and Peter
There are beaches at Stavromenos (5 mins drive) sandy/stony. Spectacular beaches 5 km away at Platanes.
We normally use Heraklion airport but Chania airport is also available as we are roughly the same distance from both (70km).The journey time from either airport is about 1 hour 15 minutes. Car hire is recommended but not essential as taxis are only a phone call away.
Stavromenos is 2/2.5 km away ,the large town Rethymno,with banks etc ,well worth a visit, is 11km away.
