I fall in love with Crete

  • 5 of 5

For all seekers of a place which would nourish the soul and provide peace and harmony not only when watching the breathtaking sunsets at the rocky shore a few meters down from the villa ( and I promise the shore is hiding much more than I am mentioning here!) , then this is the perfect place for you. The Kambos Villas are brand new and equiped with all you need and much more. And if there is anything which you might miss then the owners will get it for you within a few hours! Nick and Dikea are warm-hearted and will spoil you with own grapes, figues,lemons, cucumbers, olive oil and grappa.. and so much more! However, if you expect to spend most of your time at the beach, suitable for everyone including small kids and seniors, then you will have to make a drive to one of the beaches around, Elafonisi some 16 km away ( good 30 minutes drive) or Falasarna around 20 km other direction ( good 40 minutes) . Also for shopping food, you will need to drive , for fresh meat or fish to Kissamos Kastelli ( good one hour drive) . So a car is absolutely necessary! Also, be warned from strong winds, which welcomed us and lasted for first 3 days in extreme strenght taking away objects from tables outside the villa including the solid wooden chairs. So the wind belongs to this area but it also has the power to purify the air so you feel blessed at the end of the day when it becomes quite. I cannot await to be back. Dear Dikea and Nick, thank you for all your kindness and hospitality. We felt like we became part of your family! God bless you! Andrea , Henry, our daughters Valentina and Natalie, our parents Antonio and Magdalena and Lubos and Alka

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Kambos Paradise / Horizon villa is an absolutely fabulous Villa. Nick and the family could not have been more helpful. Sunset Taverna at Kambos is great. Great holiday we will be back!!! (There is a cat that comes by the villa and we named him Kissamos, he is very friendly.)

Situation merveilleuse, villa bien equipee

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons sejourne une semaine d'Aout a 12 personnes: 7 adultes, 3 enfants et deux bebes. Il s'agit d'une villa comprenant deux niveaux separes. Deux piscines. L'endroit est isole, tres calme, a deux pas de la mer. La vue est magnifique. La maison est tres bien equipee et les proprietaires tres agreables. On peut se baigner dans la crique a 15 minutes de marche, ou a la magnifique plage de Elafonissi (vaut le voyage) a 30 minutes en voiture: attention, prendre la route qui longe la mer, pas celle qui passe par la montagne! Seul probleme, la route vers Kissamos, les courses et l'essence est longue et difficile.

Des vacances inoubliables

  • 5 of 5

Une maison de rêve....idéale pour des vacances en famille.

Très bien aménagée, bien entretenue, propre, calme, une vue exceptionnelle & des piscines très agréables.

Nick & sa famille sont des propriétaires ultra sympathiques et serviables.

En résumé, nous la conseillons pour passer un séjour inoubliable en Crête.

Ce sont des vacances et des gens qui marquent !

Villa fantastica

  • 5 of 5

Vacanza unica e rilassante. Ci siamo trovati benissimo in questa splendida casa adatta sia ai genitori che ai nostri 4 figli.

Ottima l'accoglienza di Brigitta e gentilissimo il padrone di casa Nick.

La casa é ancora più bella di come si vede dalle foto.

Vista spettacolare sul tramonto, con spazi coperti dove poter mangiare a stare a bere in compagnia.

La casa era pulitissima, e ricca di ogni confort.

Buonissimi i ristoranti a Sfinari e gentilissimo il cugino del proprietario che gestisce la taverna Sunset a Kimbos.

Spero di tornarci il prima possibile per rivedere questo angolo di paradiso.

Consigliatissimo a chi vuole passare una rilassante vacanza immersa nei tramonti di questo fantastico mare.

Very nice holidays

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 2 familles, chacune avec 2 enfants (4 et 7 ans) et la formule de la villa séparée en 2 appartements était idéale. Il est possible de prendre les repas à 8 sans soucis au rez-de-chaussée qui est très spacieux et nous avions tout de même chacun notre espace privatif. La villa est très belle et très bien entretenue. La vue est à tomber par terre. Quel bonheur de prendre les repas face à la mer, au bord de la piscine!! Nous avons eu pas mal de vent (ce qui n'était pas pour déplaire à nos kitsurfers) mais cela ne nous a pas empêchés de profiter du lieu. La villa est assez isolée, donc très calme. La contrepartie est qu'il faut faire 45 mn de route pour faire les courses.

Le propriétaire Nick est adorable. Toujours prêt à rendre service, très disponible sans être envahissant. Il n'a pas hésité à nous apporter du ravitaillement pour nous éviter des virées supermarché. 2 des plus belles plages de Crête sont à 20 et 40 mn de route. La plus proche des 2, Elafonisi, est très belle et nous avons été surpris d'y trouver assez peu de monde en plein mois d'août. Il est vrai que nous y allions en fin d'après-midi.

Bref, nous avons passé de très belles vacances.

Un grand merci à Nick pour son hospitalité.

We were 2 families, each with 2 kids (4 and 7 years) and the semi-detached villa was perfect for us. We could have the meals together at the bottom floor which is very spacefull and each family had its private space. The villa is very nice and what a view! We were very lucky to have lunch next to the swimming pool and with this wonderful sea view. We had much wind but this was not really a problem. The villa is isolated and then peacefull. The negativ part was that the nearest supermarket is 45 mn drive.

The owner Nick is very nice. Very helpfull but not intrusive and he always made himself quickly available.

2 of the most beautiful beaches of Crete are 20 and 40 mn drive from the villa. The nearest, Elafonisi, is beautiful and perfect for young kids. We were surprised because it was not crawded in August (but we arrived always at the end of the afternoon).

Then, we spent very nice holidays. Thanks Nick for your kindness and hospitality!

Mountains rearing straight up from the sea, deep wooded gorges, ravines and valleys and yet more glorious mountains, standing proud and acting as a magnet to the eye and the imagination - that's western Crete, or real Crete, as some would say. Western Crete rural life continues at the same slow pace as it has for centuries. The West is the greenest and most mountainous area of Crete. Our Villa is located in Kampos, in the area of Inachorio. Mass tourism has not yet discovered the region. From here it is near to go to a lot of attractive spots like Falassarna, Elafonisos or the monastery of Hrissoskalitissa: Falassarna is best known for its fine sandy beach and crystal clear waters, while the beach of the islet of Elafonisos is reminiscent of a South Sea lagoon: white and in parts pink sand and a small island to which it is possible to wade through a shallow channel. Before reaching Elafonisos you pass the monastery of Hrissoskalitissa, built on a rock overlooking the sea. Or you may make a trip to the wonderful lagoon of Gramvousa/Balos taking a boat from the little habour of Kissamos.
