About the Owner
We are from England, I am a carer working for my local council and hospice. My partner and I purchased our house in the village of Drapanos in 2002 after having such a wonderful time staying in Kalives. We found the half finished house on our last day driving around and have had some fun furnishing the house. At first there was only one taverna in the village and now we have 3 and a shop. We find it very relaxing around the villa & pool. The village has some lovely walks and views. The garden is well established now and the site is looking good. When we visit the house we find it hard to leave. everyone is friendly.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your house we had the pool to ourselves all of the time and we only used the car once as quite happy to stay around the site and village. There was only one other couple on site and they were very friendly and helpful. The house was very well equipped and very clean. Lyn & Kevin Middx.
great we had a ball, even walked down the mountain to Almirida. House Brill so chilled out will be back. Dawn Sarah lee Jane
Very peaceful location. We loved it and the Almirida beach great for the kids.
4.3 based on 3 holidaymaker reviews
We found the villa to be very comfortable and spotlessly clean with all amenities provided. The pool was good and we had this to ourselves most of the time. Location was nice and quiet within easy reach of local shops and restaurants. Hope to come back in the near future and would recommend to others.
A good holiday
Lovely villa, clean, comfortable and well-equipped in peaceful location on edge of a small village, which has an adequate grocery shop. The welcome pack was very acceptable as we arrived late at night and didn't feel like going out again to one of the three local tavernas. Off the beaten track up small windy roads from the coast. A car is needed to explore the area. Of the seven homes in the complex we were the only ones staying there so very quiet. Lovely sitting on the balcony in the evening as the sun went down and the lights in the far distance around Souda Bay started twinkling. The peace was only disturbed by the tinkling of the sheep bells in the scrubby paddock next door, the odd bark of a dog and the crowing of a cockerel plus the occasional car or scooter.
A good location from which to explore the west of the island. We enjoyed a variety of activities such as walking the Imbros Gorge, visiting ancient sites such as Aptera, monasteries not far from the airport, old fortresses,(Frankokastelli - south coast), Lake Kourdas (a bit touristy), and interesting old towns in Chania and Rethymno, also driving up inland hill roads with often steep single-tracks and hairpin bends. Almyrida is a good family seaside resort a drive away. We enjoyed sitting in tavernas there at the end of the afternoon and having a swim in the warm, so-blue sea. Altogether a most enjoyable first visit to Crete.
We found the house to have everything we needed, the pool we had to ourselves most of the time which was great, it was a very quiet location, lovely village and we really enjoyed our stay. We hope to go back next year
From the Owner
“We have a choice when staying in Leftheris house we can have a lazy time sitting around the pool and using the local amenities. or using it as a base to explore the island which we have done on many occasions. We both have stressful jobs and needed some place to chill out. There is also another property on the site to rent if people have a large party and need privacy”
