About Jorg van de Voort

We are Jorg and Helma and we would like to welcome you to our villa. We enjoy relaxing holidays in sunny locations, so we've picked the best location to accomplish this. We hope you will enjoy your stay at our villa!

Jorg van de Voort purchased this villa in 2015

Why Jorg van de Voort chose Apokoronos

We've always enjoyed holidaying in Crete. The weather is always nice, the people are friendly and the views are stunning. When we found this villa we loved it immediately. Beautiful views of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) from which it gets its name, surrounded by olive groves and protected forests and yet within a stone's throw of the beach it is the perfect holiday location. The villa has a large walled garden and is located just outside the village, providing enough privacy to enjoy a relaxing holiday. We've recently (2015) renovated the entire villa, creating all the modern luxuries one might need in this otherwise idyllic location. With a saltwater pool that can be heated outside of summer, airconditioning in all rooms, 2 well equipped kitchens, fully stocked gym, wifi and both a laptop and printer available at the villa and lots more, this villa has all you could need to enjoy the perfect holiday!

What makes this villa unique

Having been renovated recently, the villa is equipped with all the luxuries you might need. The roof terrace looks out over the large walled garden with a pool. Next to the heated outdoor saltwater pool with sunbeds, there is a shaded dining area, with a build in barbecue. The villa itself is divided into two apartments, both containing a bathroom, two bedrooms, a living room/dining area and a fully furnished kitchen. In addition to this there is a private gym in the villa as well. The villa comes provided with a car, so there is no need to book a rental car. A taxi transfer from and to the airport is also included in the cost of the villa.

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first villa holiday in Crete and have to say that it was near perfect from mountain and sea views to a beautiful garden a olive tree lined pool and everything well organised from the moment we landed until the moment we left for home .

Our contact with Jorg had been excellent and he answered all queries and fulfilled our requests for extra facilities with a no problem attitude .

An amazingly beautiful and complete holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

An amazingly beautiful and complete holiday villa, clean and comfortable. Very spacious inside and, in addition, with a vast wrap-around garden - beautifully laid out with lots of unexpected nooks. The large pool (heated, on request) is a great bonus, as are the car that comes with the house, and the gym.

Extremely well-equipped. We have rented many houses for previous holidays, but I'm sure this villa will remain #1. Highly recommended!

Tip: transport from the airport (Chania or Heraklion) to the villa and vice versa requires considered preparation (renting a taxi van is a good idea).

Its better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This was a really great experience from the minute we inquired about this Villa. Jorg was extremely helpful when booking, the arrival pack is very thorough and comprehensive and any queries we had dealt with very quickly. When we arrived the villa was spotless and the welcome pack very much appreciated.

The villa is very well appointed. It has a well equipped kitchen - it even has sharp knives which us a rarity for a rental villa. The well equipped Gym even got used more than once!

The garden is exceptional and the photographs do not do it justice. It is full of mature and semi-mature trees (some of them fruit trees) shrubs, flowers and herbs. It is large and built on a number of levels with plenty of seating in various parts of the garden. You can have full sun or full shade or anything in-between, which ever you prefer. The saltwater pool (a first for us is great) and we are told it is rare in the area as it gets full sun all day. Again there is plenty of shade by the pool if you want it too. The garden is wonderfully lit at night so if you want to have a nigh time game of boules you can. Its completely private and very quiet, except for the tinkle of the 'sheep bells'.

We had some exceptional sunsets from the terrace.

Check out Meteritzi Taverna in Kefalas and To Pigadi if you get as far as Rathymnon. We thought both very good but not everyone's taste is the same.

Beautiful villa with stunning grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of two families and chose the villa for its beautiful outside space. We weren't disappointed. The views from every aspect of the property were wonderful and everything was in tip top order.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We could hardly believe our eyes when we arrived late at night at Villa Lefka Ori - it was so much bigger than we had expected, and the following morning when we saw the garden and the pool, we knew this was the best decision ever. Lantana, hibiscus and bougainvillea give a riot of colour, loved by the swallowtail butterflies.The owners here have thought of everything - blow up toys for the pool, more than enough sun loungers and sun umbrellas, mosquito screens on the windows, a great system with the aircon that only allows you to switch it on if your windows are closed. Beaches a bit touristy but friendly, Almyrida good for kayaks and iced coffee. Best to eat 'mountain food' rather than 'beach food', we found- cheaper and way better in every way. We loved Parasia in Vamos. For a relaxing week, this place had everything we wished for.

Grat stay at a Cretan paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a stay ! Villa Lefka Ori is just awesome. And it’s not only the villa itself – it’s also the great surroundings, and the way it is all so well organized. Jorg – the owner of the Villa – has put a lot of effort into making this place almost a paradise.

When we arrived there was nobody there, but it was very easy to find the lockers and retrieve the keys. And quite soon we had a visit of a person who showed us around and explained all we needed to know.

The villa itself is bigger than it might appear from the photos. On the upper foor, large kitchen, nicely arranged and with plenty of necessary stuff. In a separate small room, a large freezer and a fridge. Kitchen open to a large living room. There are two bedrooms – one with en-suite bathroom, the other with a separate bathroom. Both bedrooms equipped with efficient and quiet AC units. From the living room, a door leads to a large terrace with a comfortable table and a great view. There you can enjoy the breeze coming from the mountains.

On the lower floor, similar arrangement, only everything is much smaller. We were 2 families with 4 kids, and the kids stayed downstairs. There is also a well equipped gym, and a large terrace on the top of the house.

The swimming pool – just great. It is cleaned regularly, and you won’t even notice when it is being done. And the grill area close to the pool ! We spent all evenings there, even if we dined out. And even though the villa location is quite rural and isolated (you only hear the cicades and sheep wandering around), there are a lot of nice places to dine out in the nearby villages (visit to Gavalochori is a must !). There are several mini-markets around, all easily reached with the help of the Fiat Panda, which is provided for the guests to use. If you want a bigger supermarket – drive approx. 15 km to SYNKA in Kalyves.

The wi-fi in the villa was working well and fast during our stay. The taxi which drove us in and then out, was a great convenience. We can recommed Villa Lefka Ori to anyone wishing to have a great holidays with no worries. Thanks, Jorg !
