Villa with Private Pool, Garden, Sea and Mountain Views



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
Villa in Litsarda, Chania, Crete, Greece - Peaceful Location, 5 mins Walk to Village, 15 mins drive to Beach

Villa Sasha is a delightful mix of traditional build and contemporary style, with Cretan stone arches, wooden vaulted ceiling, window shutters and comfortable leather sofas, elegant dining with all mod-cons. Situated outside the village of Litsarda in its own gated plot of 4,200 sqm, it has wonderful views of the sea and white mountains. Litsarda village is a 5 min walk away where you will find a pizzeria serving delicious pizzas to eat in or takeaway. The villa is designed with the living/dining room and kitchen all being on the 1st floor so why not share a pizza and a bottle of wine on the upstairs balcony while admiring the amazing sunsets. The private pool (10m x 5m) enjoys the sun all day long and there are ample sun loungers, tables and chairs. Set in a peaceful location our villa is best suited for families and couples who want a great place to 'chill out' but with easy access to local amenities and the resorts of Amyrida, Kalyves and Georgioupoli. The villa, pool & garden are private & not overlooked. There is no passing traffic.

Thank you, We had a fabulous holiday. Everything about your villa was great;

spacious, lovely decor, spotlessly clean and great sunsets. The children loved the large pool, we always had one day sightseeing or at the beach, followed by a day at the villa. It certainly was a great place to chill out. Batteries now fully charged! Michelle & family London.

We have used Owners Direct for many years and all the villas have been lovely, however, your villa was the best by far. It had everything we could have wished for. The team of people you have in Crete were efficient and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a fabulous time. Thank you very much for letting us use your villa. Kathryn, Kent

We had an amazing time in Crete. The villa was beautiful, it looked good on the photos but in reality it was even better, it was equipped with everything you could need. Thank you for a brilliant holiday. Paula, Essex

This was our second visit to the villa and have enjoyed our stay each time. The villa has everything you need for a family holiday, very clean and well maintained. The couple who came to clean the pool were very friendly and gave us a run down off places to visit, restaurants, beaches etc. I would advise that you hire a car as the villa is set in a lovely quite location with fantastic views away from local amenities. The the next village is a local bakery and an English butcher.

The owners of the villa are very helpful from the moment we booked our holiday. I would highly recommend Sacha. Villa to everyone.

Perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sasha is in a good location for a peaceful, fun family holiday. Good size, well maintained pool. Car definitely required to reach beautiful beaches and coast lines and to explore the area. Highlights are indeed the views, the local Tavernas..(particularly the one leaving Vamos back to highway - Parasia Rakadiko).Villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Our one little plumbing problem was addressed immediately. Good to note that you cannot go back on to the highway and turn left back to Chania when you have used that way to come in! Have already recommended it to friends and would love to come back.

Fantastic Peaceful and Relaxing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after 2 weeks holiday at this fantastic villa. The location is great and very quiet and peaceful. There are a great number of beaches, restaurants and things to do a short drive a way - we loved the Dream Adventures speedboat from Almyrida. Our children loved the short walk to the great pizzeria in Litsarda itself.

The pool at the villa is a fantastic size - great for swimming and playing in.

The villa itself is great too. It is really spacious, not overlooked and has everything you need. We particularly loved the views from the upstairs balconies and watching shooting stars at night.

We would really recommend this villa for the perfect relaxing family holiday.

Lovely villa and holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Crete before and absolutely loved it!! Hopefully we will go again and stay again in this lovely villa.

Everything was as described, if not better. The location was perfect with views of mountains and sea. The pool was large and wonderful to swim in after, before or just lazing by it.

The villa is to a very high standard and perfectly maintained. It had everything one could have asked for and more.

I am certain that whoever rents it will not be disappointed!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Villa Sasha. It was our first time in Crete. Our party was a family of five adults. We were very impressed with Villa Sasha. It was spotless, spacious and very well maintained. The location was perfect for us. Private and quiet and yet in easy reach (by car) of the beaches and resort/towns. We also found it ideal as a base for exploring the countryside. We will certainly be back.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of two adults and three children from Ireland. We had a really fabulous two weeks in Villa Sasha. The villa was clean, spacious for five and very comfortable. The pool was fantastic, it's very large and, like the rest of the villa, really well maintained by the professional staff. Any minor quibbles we had (and they were very minor) were sorted out very quickly by the management team who live nearby. The aircon is useful for cooling the bedrooms before turning in on very hot nights. One thing we loved about the villa was the balconies which afford sweeping views taking in both the sea and the mountains. V. nice to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset over Souda bay! The villa is well situated close to Vamos which has a super Taverna and bakery and to Vrisses which has a great mini mart and a shop opposite that sells delicious baklava. It's an easy drive to the beach as well as Chania and Rethymnon which are beautiful and have some great bargains too. The local tourist office organises trips to the Samaria gorge which is a great adventure if you enjoy a good hike. Overall couldn't recommend more highly.
