About The Owner

We are a family with young children from Surrey.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Apokoronos

We got married in Chania and loved the place so much we bought a villa a year or so later in nearby Kalives. We holiday there ourselves with the kids twice a year whenever possible and never tire of it although we're always seeking out new places and things to do each time. We're always happy to share our top tips on outings/restaurants etc!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was everything we had hoped for and we loved Neo Chorio, Armeni and Kalyves. It is so ideally situated for “tripping off” which we did most days and visited all the places we wished to. What more can I say – it was terrific and thanks for letting us have the use of Villa K. (Walton family June, 2015).

Thanks very much indeed for allowing us to use your villa. We had a wonderful time, especially enjoying the wonderful garden with all the sitting out areas, plus, of course the pool which was so perfect in the heat. (Child family, July 2015).

Just checking-in on our return. We had an excellent time - thank you. Such a peaceful spot, but with easy access to everything. (West family, August 2015).

The holiday was wonderful as always, my two friends who joined me had never been to Crete before and both fell in love with the area and your great villa. (Burns family, September 2015).

The villa was just right for us, we enjoyed the top balcony for breakfast and in the evenings and we all swam in the pool. (Clegg family, October 2015).

Una bellissima casa in un luogo affascinante.

  • 5 of 5

La casa è molto comoda, ben arredata e dotata di tutto il necessario. E' in una posizione strategica per splendide gite. Ma anche i dintorni sono bellissimi, nella parte di creta più autentica e bella! Non dimenticheremo questa vacanza.

Very good standard, clean and nice pool

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and had a great time at the house. The house is very nice and clean with very good standard, the owners easy to contact, helpful and forthcoming. The property has several sitting areas outside in the beatiful garden so it's always possible to find both shade and sun. The house is very nicely located in a traditional greek area with great view from the upstairs balcony, but still only 5 min to nearest beach. For us this was a perfect house for a family holiday. The owners has also prepared the perfect "guide book" with lots of suggestions for trips and recommendations for restaurants etc - it made the holiday a lot easier.

Lovely villa in traditional village

  • 5 of 5

We all really loved the Villa K. Spotlessly clean yet homely. In a quiet little village it was ideal for a chill out holiday. Nice garden, plenty of places to sit and relax in the lovely garden or by the pool or on the upstairs terrace, which has a beautiful view. We didn't hire a car, although the owners recommend it for ease of getting around. But still, we managed by bus, taxi and on foot. Neo Chorio is about a 10 minute walk, Armeni a 20 minute walk for some good tavernas. We walked the Samaria Gorge (taxi dropped us off and picked us up again). 16 kilometre walk so we were pretty exhausted at the end but well worth it for the spectacular scenery. Chania worth a visit too. Also took a coach trip to Knossos from Kalives. Had a fantastic holiday!

Special interest holidays:

We can recommend a good local tour operator who can organise everything from a day walking the Samaria Gorge, mountain biking in the white mountains, sailing, day trips to Santorini and much more. For those who want to be completely independent there is plenty of walking in the White Mountains nearby - please ask for further information, would be happy to provide. Scuba diving is also available from professional outfit at Chania harbour 25 minutes drive away. Horse riding available at Georgeopolis only 20 minutes drive.


5 minutes drive to 2 fabulous beaches at Kalives. Numerous other beaches close by. The beach in Kalives centre is particularly family friendly, being a sheltered bay with gently sloping sand into the sea. Plenty of amenities here with numerous tavernas/shops.
