We offer a traditional self-catering villa holiday - perfect for families & couples. Our villas are well designed and furnished to a high standard with a real 'home from home' feel.
Although car hire is recommended to get the most out of this wonderful area of Western Crete, the village of Chorafakia, Chania and its amenities are within walking distance. The village has 2 mini-markets, 2 hairdressers and an internet cafe, garage, car rental as well as bus stops and a taxi rank. There are 3 good tavernas close by and 4 of the best beaches in Western Crete.
The wonderful old city of Chania is a 15 minute drive away and boasts a Venetian harbour with a large selection of fish restaurants as well as some interesting shops, restaurants and museums.
Site security: Our site is walled and gated - great for families with children.
We can also supply a child gate to the front entrance of each villa - when fitted - as long as the side door to the villa is closed, there is no exit point for a small child to escape as all other doors open onto closed balconies
Smoking: We have no objection to guests smoking on the terraces but we do not allow smoking in the villas.
Facebook : We now have a Cretanvillas page on Facebook!

Where to start . . .
1) Location - the local village within 10 minutes walk (Chorafakia) with 2 or 3 nice restaurants and two mini markets for all your self catering set up needs. There are several beaches within a ten minute drive - we loved the shallow shelved Kalathas beach with its own island you can wade / swim out to. There are a lot more dining options in nearby Stavros or larger Kounoupidina, the latter of which also has much larger shops and several cafés. Chania itself of course is about 15 minutes drive away or a bit more if linking into the regular bus service, with countless things to see and do.
2) The Property - there are three villa bungalows, two of which front the pool directly and the other a section of the immaculately maintained garden (the tortoise family caused much deight to young son !) the spacious pool also is spotless and very well equipped with sunloungers, BBQ area inc. outside eating options etc. Caleb basically learned to swim over the ten day stay, so this pool will always hold fond memories hence forth for us all.
Internally the two houses we were allocated both are exceptionally well equipped when compared to other places we have stayed in previously and really we could not think of anything else we would have needed, with at least three options of coffee making available for example - gotta love a Greek coffee pot ! The welcome pack for first breakfast was a nice touch and much appreciated - ample towels and beach towels all provided with spacious and very clean accommodation throughout. Bin bags, washing machine and dishwasher again with starter supplies all very useful and even games, books and dvds to chose from ! Very sound beds that were much to our liking.
3) The Owners - Tom and Claire were the perfect hosts willing to give as much or as little help as desired. As we had been to this part of Crete last year I don't think we gave them too much hassle hopefully ! With their long experience of the island they obviously know where to go for the best eateries, shops and day trips etc. Also their recommendation of the local car hire firm worked out for a very fair price for our stay compared to other branded options - and was very quickly sorted out to tie in seamlessly with out airport arrival and then kindly guided round to the property by Tom.
Thank you both so much for sorting this element of our trip to make for a perfect Easter break. Would love to come again another time in the future.
Our holiday in Villa Maria will go in our memory bank as one of our favourites and that is in the main because of the gorgeous villa, pool and gardens which look exactly as the photos if not better.
My daughter woke up the first morning, looked out and said I think I've woken up in paradise! Our children had hours of fun in the lovely pool.
The villa itself was so clean and well equipped that I can't think of anything extra that we could have wanted.
Thank you to the lovely Clare and Tom for a fabulous family holiday!
And hopefully see you again next year.
We really loved Our stay at Villa Eleni. It's Beautiful outside in the Garden and its a clean and Nice place inside aswell as by the pool. Claire and Tom are are very Nice hoasts. The tavernas they reccomend are just Great. The Village is small and Nice. We will go back for sure!
Accommodation was great, no detail overlooked, owners Tom and Clare available for advice and restaurant recommendations without being intrusive. Loved Melikas restaurant! Definitely up for a return visit!
My husband, daughter and I spent 10 days in Villa Maria in July 14 and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The setting is lovely, with 3 villas facing a shared pool and 2 barbeque areas set amongst delightful landscaped gardens. The villa was fresh, modern and extremely well stocked with condiments, as well as staples such as bread, milk and cereal, so that our first day's breakfast was waiting for us when we arrived. But our strongest recommendation is for the hosts, Tom and Claire, who were extremely warm, friendly and welcoming. Tom met us at the airport at 10 p.m. having previously arranged car hire for us. The next morning he took us for a 1-hour drive around the area to help us get our bearings and to point out some good beaches, restaurants and amenities. Tom and Claire obviously put a lot of effort into ensuring that their guests have an enjoyable holiday, and this was very much appreciated.
I was wary booking independently but was delighted to meet Tom at the airport waiting for us. Everything they say on the web site is exactly what you find. Immaculately presented accommodation set in beautifully kept gardens. Tom and Claire are always on hand with helpful advice. They take such pride in their property and can't do enough for you. I was concerned as I have dietary requirements being gluten and dairy intolerant, Claire bought me gluten free bread and was able to direct me to the nearest supermarket where I was able to get everything I needed. The villa was absolutely immaculate and well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Claire really does think of everything! The pool is lovely and clean and the perfect size. Fantastic value for a wonderful holiday set in a lovely village, close to all amenities. We'll be booking again for next year!
