About Katerina Mastromanoli

I was born and grew up in Chania, I have studied Tourism in Heraklion and Liege (Belgium) and I live in Chania with my husband and our two little girls.

Katerina Mastromanoli purchased this villa in 2007

Why Katerina Mastromanoli chose Apokoronos

It is the village where my grandparents lived and my mother was born. A very peaceful and traditional village with so many good memories of my childhood. My mother Olga decided to build those villas in Maheri as it is her birth place and she loves that place; she also wanted to maintain her connection with that village and to contribute in its developement.

What makes this villa unique

Very good constructions, well-furnished and beautifully decorated. In a peaceful location with amazing views and surrounded by cretan nature.

Lovely stay in the hill of Crete

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Erontas, the first of the two Villas in the little Maheri village. The Villa is spacious, comfortable and very well kept. We enjoyed a lot its terrace to drink an aperitif at sunset and relax after a day of activities.

Katerina is a wonderful host and will help with all you need. The location feels a bit isolated, but it allowed us to explore quite a bit of the island.

A definite recommendation.

Beautiful villa in peaceful village setting.

  • 5 of 5

The villa itself is beautiful, with all mod cons, and Katarina is a great host. On the first couple of days of our 12 day stay, we wondered if we would have rathered been in a town on the coast, but we soon came to appreciate the joy of returning to the villa and the village, which is less than a 10 minute drive from the coast (but you will need a car!).

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere peaceful and out of the way. Villa Erontas was a beautiful building in a hillside village with amazing views of the mountains in one direction and the sea in the other. We were given a really warm welcome. Katerina was so helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. It was a special place to explore the island from and we soon felt like it was home. It had all comforts - wi-fi, air con, washing machine, TV/DVD - and we felt relaxed and privileged to stay there.

A beautiful holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have spent many years travelling to Greece for holidays, and have stayed in Crete several times. However, we have never stayed in such a lovingly restored villa as this.

The villa is in a pretty, non-touristy village and has beautiful views out towards the sea, especially from the sun-deck which is a great place to relax and sunbathe. The location gives easy access to Chania town, and many other areas of interest.

Inside, it has a well-equipped kitchen, 2 lovely bathrooms and 2 well-sized and comfortable bedrooms, as well as a spacious lounge and dining area.

It was full of personal touches which, combined with the excellent care we received from Katerina, made our stay.

We look forward to visiting again!

geräumige, gut ausgestattete Villa in ruhigem Dorf

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine schöne und entspannte Zeit dort. Das Haus ist voll saniert, geräumig und bietet alles, was man braucht. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig (abgesehen von bellenden Hunden), und bietet einen guten Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in Westkreta. Die Besitzerin ist sehr freundlich und sorgt für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt.
