About the Owner

We live near Bath in England, have two kids, ran a Telecom business for 25 years (now sold), met in 1980 and have finally realized our dream of a fabulous coastal holiday home to enjoy in Woolacombe England (ref E17263) and a Villa in Crete (ref GR4662).

Perfect few days in Crete

  • 5 of 5

We were truly stunned by the location and views. The property was beautifully maintained and very comfortable and peaceful. What we liked most was the fact that we could easily walk to the local village, have lunch and a look around. In addition, it was just a short car ride to the beach and other towns with some great bars and restaurants. We would definitely recommend the property to our friends/relatives. Wish we could have stayed longer. We'll be back, for sure!

Villa High Spec, well maintained .Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Caliz, Kournas, Crete

We had a marvellous stay with our family, including young granddaughter, at Villa Caliz, in mid-September 2016. We couldn’t have chosen better accommodation; it had everything you could wish for including a great patio area with BBQ and really good sized, well maintained pool. Everything was high spec and well laid out.

The views are stunning in all directions, from mountains to sea. The nearby town of Kavros is on the coast and has lots of Tavernas and tourist shops, plus some good supermarkets.

There is also a vast expanse of sandy beach here with many more Tavernas. We particularly enjoyed the Paradise Beach Bar.

However, we often ate in Kournas village, just a short walk away from the Villa. There are three Tavernas and we were frequent visitors to Kali Kardia (Red Heart) run by Andreas. The hospitality was fantastic here. There is also a small shop and a bakery in the village and a good pottery owned by the amusing Kostas. Everywhere generally had a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

You will need transport to get around and we hired a vehicle at Chania airport on arrival.

There is much to do and see in Western Crete but we were mainly content to explore and enjoy the surrounding area. Kournas Lake, Argyroupolis and Ancient Lappa, in particular, are well worth visiting.

We would highly recommend this amazing Villa and its beautiful surrounding area.

Review of Chris Jones' Kournas villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family group consisted of my wife and I together with two our grown up children and partners. Our first impression was instantly favourable - the layout, situation and views are superb, the separate bedrooms with own balconies and showers, suited our family group very well. The master bedroom has an en suite and toilet and the bedrooms upstairs shared a toilet; there is an additional toilet downstairs. The kitchen is well designed and you could easily make meals or a BBQ to eat outside or in. The glass wide glass doors in the sitting room slide open to make the patio area instantly accessible. There is a shaded area for eating and relaxing. The swimming pool was excellent for family activity and fun and the patio area perfectly adaptable for entertaining and relaxing.

After a day's touring it was always a pleasure to come back to the villa for a swim and rest.

Kournas is a traditional Cretan mountain village, quiet and authentic; there are three tavernas as well as local cafes and a small shop, bakery and pottery. Local honey, bread, wine and ceramics can be found in the village. It is less than a ten minute drive away from the more touristy Karos with its long beach and amenities, and there is the unusual fresh water lake of Kournas nearby where you can swim.

We walked the Imbros gorge in about 2 and a quarter hours, leaving the car at Imbros and returning by bus from Chora Skafion after a welcome swim. We would recommend leaving early to avoid the heat and have the impressive gorge more or less to yourselves and the goats.

The White mountains are a fantastic backdrop to the villa and village and there is no noise apart from the tinkle of goatbells.

We had a truly lovely time and found much to enjoy in the area. Thanks Chris for a special place which we will long remember.

A fantastic villa in a idyllic location - the perfect end to the summer holidays.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were so impressed. Not only was the villa superbly equipped (everything had been thought of) but very modern and spotlessly clean too. A car is a must as it's in a lovely quiet area yet there are many beautiful places to visit and eat just a short drive away. Will definitely be looking to return and will be recommending to friends who want a perfect escape.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of June and found it to be ideal.The views are stunning and we liked being away from the noise of the resort,but you can walk to the village in about 5 minutes.The village reminded me of Greece when I first visited 30 years ago,three nice tavernas and small shops.The guided walk we took with Barbera from the village was a highlight.

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a week at this lovely villa. The location is perfect with close proximity to the beaches, shops and hills. A lovely retreat in such peaceful village with stunning views. The property itself has everything needed to ensure relaxation and enjoyment! I am trying to find a date in my diary to come back. Simply perfection.

Facilities

From the Owner

Amazing views of the ocean and mountains from all the rooms and especially from the pool. Nestled into the hillside near Kournas the villa enjoys a cooling breeze. The agricultural village of Kournas produces sounds of sheep herding, bells clanking on goat's collars, tractors and distant church bells.....we love these sounds! Modern, clean design, open plan living, ample storage, and a newly installed 15mB speed unlimited broadband. There are three double bedrooms, one can be configured with two single beds on request.
