We had a very happy 6 days at Yannis Cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, including my absolute essentials - comfortable bed, coffee machine, good shower, lovely garden and pool.
Local tavernas were great but we also enjoyed exploring many of Manolis’ other recommendations, including a visit to the local vineyard.
We’d love to go back!
What a wonderful break!!!!!
My husband & I have just had a wonderful stay in the little cottage. It's the perfect retreat to disconnect from our busy lives. The host Manolis is very accommodating and you can ask him about anything you need to know whilst enjoying your stay here. Highly recommended
Just fabulous as always . Perfect chilling place . Shame the church bells have almost gone .
Can’t wait to return.
Thank you 😊
Absolutely fabulous stay from start to finish!
The cottage was beautiful a real Cretian home. It was spotlessly clean, exactly as described. The pool and location far exceeded our expectations. Pretty garden, perfect privacy and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Manolis was a wonderful host and spoilt us. We were left Cretian delicacies, collected eggs from the chickens, and his grandmother made us some gorgeous stuffed vegetable dishes. Manolis also gave us great advice as where to go and visit. We loved the village life attended church on Sunday and we went to both local tavernas which were lovely, fed the local cats, walked to the supermarket and visit the local beach. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it. Thank you so much Manolis.

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 20 minutes.

You can also order by phone and the owner of the mini market can bring anything you need at the Cottage!!!
The village of Spilia is named after the Cave of Ai-Yiannis Erimiti which is to be found in the west part of the village on the hill above the Villa (1 km away), on an impressive site of great historical importance and exceptional views of the olives groves, the sea and the White Mountains.
The Cave of St John the Hermit looks like an oblong arcade. Its length is about 135 meters and the scientists believe that it is essentially a prehistoric river bed.
The history of the cave is associated with the ascetic life of the hermit John, since he lived there – according to researchers – in the 6th century.
A short distance away from the Villa (100m away) is situated a dense vegetation of extremely high Plane Trees, that are centuries old.
Under the trees is a very pleasant and local tavern which offers traditional food.
