Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived at the villa , Barbara was there to greet us.

She went above and beyond in making our holiday in Crete amazing.

The villa is lovely and the pool was a welcome retreat during the hot days.

All the rooms were well equipped and spotlessley clean. All the local restaurants are within walking distance and were lovely , we ate out most nights.

We did also make use of the lovely out door kitchen area and had very successful BBQ's.!!

When we wanted to hire various modes of transport (car, quad and motorbike) Barbara sorted everything for us

The six of us had a really memorable holiday and would definatley return.

Beautiful Villa, great location, whole-heartedly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the villa is amazing, lovely clean modern bedrooms, great outdoor cooking area (which we loved using) and the pool area is relaxing and beautifully maintained. The kitchen is well resourced and the living room and dining areas are spacious, immaculate and welcoming. The Villa is also walking distance from shops, bars and the beach and a short taxi or car ride away from Chania town. One of the best things about this villa is the service provided by Barbara. She was so kind, welcoming and helpful and was able to organise transfers, car hire and taxis. She also gave us great recommendations about the surrounding area and made sure that our trip was as enjoyable as it could possibly be. We also had great contact with her before the holiday, which meant we felt comfortable as soon as we arrived. I cannot recommend this villa enough, we had an amazing time at Villa Vanelia Mare and hope to be back very soon!!!

Fabulous. Very clean & beautiful. Gracious & kind hostess.

  • 5 of 5

Our one week vacation in the villa is best described as luxurious. The layout, furnishings and decor are so beautiful and relaxing. We jumped into the refreshing pool each day we returned from our wonderful excursions on the historic & scenic Island. We never tired of the views of the sea & mountains from the balconies. Barbara was so helpful and delightful. She put forth a lot of effort to ensure our stay was a 5 star experience. She shared many stories about growing up on Crete..her father's olive trees including free olive oil she provided. Crete has so much to offer in the way of activities. My family and I will always have fond memories of our stay in the sophisticated villa.

Villa Vanelia Mare

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Villa Vanelia Mare for 2 weeks at the beginning of April 2017. The owner (Barbara) gave us great directions to the Villa which we found very easily. it's location was perfect for us, only 200m's away from the beach and row of shops, café & restaurants. All within easy walking distance.

The Villa was bright, big, clean and very well equipped. It's layout for 8 of us was perfect allowing us all to have some personal space if we wanted it. The outside barbecue was a treat which we used a couple of times, set down the side of the villa with a lovely social area.

The owner (Barbara) was extremely helpful and spoke English very well. Barbara was always available if required. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks.

This is our second year in Crete, we stayed further along the coast last year which was a bit isolated. Villa Vanelia Mare is only a 15min drive from Chania town centre and if we return next year we will definitely consider returning to this Villa.

superior villa with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We`ve spent two weeks at Villa Vanelia Mare with our family, 4 kids and 5 adults. The house is very spacious and has a grand view over the sea and Chania. Its close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We enjoyed everything with the Villa and we have had the best experience with the owner. Always helpful and kind.

Super Villa,Super Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa enspricht absolut der Beschreibung,lediglich der fußläufige Weg zum Strand war etwa 600 m.Mit der Enfernungsangabe 200m ist sicherlich die Luftlinie gemeint.Die Gastgeberin,Barbara,wohnt mit ihrer Familie sehr diskret ebenfalls an der Villa(im Kellergeschoss).Alle waren waren bemüht uns einen tollen Aufenthalt zu bereiten.Jedoch nie Aufdringlich und immer sehr diskret.Wir haben erst nach 2 Tagen bemerkt,das noch jemand am Objekt wohnt.Das Haus ist in sehr gut,gepflegt und sauber.Alle Fenster und Türen haben Schiebetüren mit Moskito Schutz.Das Inventar in der Villa ist ausreichend und in sehr gutem Zustand.Wenn trotzdem etwas fehlen sollte,wurde durch die Gastgeberin sofort Abhilfe geschaffen.Der Ort,Galatas,hat gute Restaurants und einen für Kretaer Verhältnisse fantastischen Sandstrand.Die Menge der Touristen ist hier noch überschaubar.Chania ist 4km entfernt und mit dem Bus in 15min.zu erreichen.Wir können diese Villa in jeder Hinsicht absolut weiterempfehlen und wünschen allen Urlaubern,die dieser Empfehlung folgen,genau so schönen Aufenthalt, wie wir ihn hatten.
