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 Chania area

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.

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!

Maison agréable dans les hauteurs de La Canee

  • 4 of 5

Maison moderne construite traditionnellement. Bel espace de séjour offrant un vrai confort de vie. Deux espaces extérieurs agréables : un petite terrasse devant la maison et une grande terrasse avec transat à l'étage. Deux salles de bain assez confortables.

Bonne qualité du Wifi.

Le cadre général est vraiment parfait pour les amoureux de calme, nature et village typique. Plusieurs villages avec restaurants très bons dans les environs. La mer à moins de 15 min.

Et enfin un accueil vraiment très sympa de notre hôte. Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse.
