Our holiday in Spilia in Villa Katerina
We had a brilliant stay in Manos’ villa - it was a fantastic villa, pool was great, beautiful views and very comfortable - Manos was a very helpful host giving us ideas on where to go to eat and best places to visit and bringing us such lovely food and such a generous welcome pack when we arrived ! So generous ! The villa is in a beautiful setting with gorgeous views we were sad to leave - the local restaurants were lovely and the nearby town is full of great places to eat too - again Manos gave us good recommendations on where to eat - we loved Dictina - we went on a brilliant snorkelling trip with the local dive centre - we are a family of two adults and four teenagers and we all absolutely loved it ! Thank you Manos !
A fantastic time had by all!!!!
Where do we start.... Manolis, is the most amazing, helpful, organised host ever. We had an amazing time in his lovely house. Cleaner attended twice a week, changed beds and provided clean towels. Pool was beautifully clean and very welcoming!!! Manolis recommended some fabulous places for us to attend, he was always in touch, even texting on results day to see how our son did with his degree! Totally recommend anyone staying at Villa Katerina, the location is perfect. Not ruined by tourists, still traditional with perfect tavernas in walking distance. Crete and Manolis, you’ve excelled in every way.

Our stay here was amazing! We stayed for 7 nights and did not want to leave. Manolis is an exceptional host and so generous with all of his gifts of delicious food and the time he spent with us giving excellent advice on where to go or where to eat! Loved Crete with all their small wonderful villages, beautiful beaches and lovely people! We miss it already! Do not hesitate to book it!!!!
Congratulations to your lovely family!!I enjoyed our meetings and your lovely grand daughter!many wishes to all of you!
Lovely house, great village, super host
The villa is a perfect home away from home -stocked with everything you could need. Plus a gorgeous, twinkling pool, views of the mountains and the sea... Spilia village is great, very relaxed, friendly people especially in the tavernas. Manolis is a great host, kind, thoughtful, welcoming with weather- and family- relevant ideas about where to go and what to do. and knows about amazing pastry... we would happily return!
We passed 3 weeks during November in Villa Katerina. We decided to travel to Crete during this period because we could go any other period. We knew that maybe we would have a bad weather but we risked it!!And we didn't regret it!!We finally chose a lovely place with a heated pool, in case of cold days. There were a lot of options, so we based on the reviews this Villa had. And after these 3 weeks we can understand the reasons of making people write such a grate comments.
Manolis is a grate host and an intelligent man. He made us feel like our home., we enjoyed so much the time we passed together. In most of the reviews other visitors highlighted the welcome pack Manolis offers. Now i can understand....There are so many things he offers, and so good quality. The olive oil, the cheese the honey and of course the eggs, were so tasty!
We were a family of 4 people ( me my wife and my 2 sons 20,21 years old)
The pool was amazing, the water temperature was perfect, by using the heated pump, and we spent a lot of days relaxing in the pool area , watching the grate view of the sea and the white mountains!
The villa inside have everything you need. 3 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. 2 ofd the beds are so big!!There are 2 different places you can relax. Near the pool or upstairs on the veranda!!Photos which are uploaded in the site are nice, but it cannot represent the energy and the beauty this Villa and the owner provide.
Manolis was immediately available in person or by text to answer any questions and provide help in planning trips and reserving restaurants for us. His recommendations were brilliant, most of the tips was hidden and we would not find it without his help.
Manolis thank you so much!
We will come again next year for sure.
Spila is located on the edge of the plain of Chania 2 km from Kolymvari, 22km from Chania city-centre and 35 km from the airport of Chania. The village is near the junction with the national road which allows access to Chania in less than 25 minutes and makes easy the access to the most famous places in West Crete. The village Spilia (cave in Greek) is named after the Cave of Ai-Yiannis Erimitis which is located in the west part of the village on a hill, on an impressive site of great historical importance with exceptional view.
Near the entrance of the Cave of St. John the Hermit there is an underground water collector, while the sides of the arcade are decorated with stalagmites and stalactites.
The Cave of St John the Hermit exudes a religious character, as it is adorned with icons and ecclesiastical objects that hang on its walls.
Dominating the village is the Church of Panayia Myrtidiotissa whilst, a short distance away from the Villa (100m away) is situated a very pleasant and locally taverna offering traditional food. The tavern is under a dense vegetation of extremely high Plane Trees, that are centuries old.
Close by in the center of the village, there is another new tavern which is open all day and you can enjoy the taste of local products.
In charming Kolymvari (5 minutes by car) you will find the Iera Moni Gonias Monastery and the Orthodox Academy of Crete.
In the village there are many pleasant tavernas, restaurants and kafenios, a post office, a medical center, a supermarket and bank / ATM’s.
The area is famous for its fish, landed fresh daily from the harbour, the fragrant wine of the Kissamos area and the awarded olive oil with it’s low acidity rate.
Spilia village is ideally located for you to visit the most important coasts of Crete, the well-known Falassarna with the immense sandy beach, the ancient town and the enchanting lagoon of Elafonisi, attractions awarded by international organizations for their clearness and the multi coloured sand formations. In the wider area is set the beautiful lagoon of Balos at Gramvousa, where you can enjoy all the tints of blue and green.
West Crete has much to offer, sightseeing, archaeological sites, the lovely beaches of Falassarna, Elafonissi and Balos which are all within easy driving distance from the Villa.
The famous Samaria Gorge, and many other wonderful Gorges (famous and not famous) & walks in the countryside are another option.
Go and visit the maybe the oldest olive tree in the world at Vouves.It still produces olive oil today!!You need less than l0 minutes drive.
Night-life, beach bars, wind-surfing and other extreme sports can be found in abundance all in the Platanias area which is not far away.
Crete as it may sound absurd is an ideal destination for those who want to ski at Cretan mountains. With many options , alternative routes - crossings and in combination with the quality of life would not be an exaggeration to say that the island of Crete is a paradise for those who want something different deep in the heart of winter.
We can also offer you several services ::Car rentals, Transfers,Excursions to Samaria gorge or other gorges, guided walks,massage,personal training,4X4 safari to Balos,Cooking services and Cretan cooking lessons, massage, treatments, etc
