About Chris and Liz Jones

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).

Chris and Liz Jones purchased this villa in 2014

Why Chris and Liz Jones chose Kournas

Our Villa is a few minutes walk from the traditional Crete village of Kournas, just 8 minutes drive from an amazing 7km stretch of sandy beach and enjoys wonderful views of the ocean and mountains.

Ease of airport access from Chania (45mins) and Heraklion (90mins) was an important factor.

What makes this villa unique

Amazing views of the ocean and mountains from all the rooms and especially from the pool (Pool Heating Installed Sept 17). 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.

A beautiful, modern villa set in an outstanding site with exceptional views.

  • 5 of 5

The villa easily surpassed the expectations we had for a family of 4 (Mum, Dad, 18 year old boy & 16 year old girl) from the description on the website. Fully fitted out to cater for yourself, we took the easy way out and ate out most of the time. There is an inviting heated pool set on a terrace with outstanding views toward Georgioupolis and beyond. The villa itself is situated on the edge of the traditional Cretian village of Kournas, full of local characters. Four local tavernas within walking distance and a wider choice within a 15 minute drive means there is no shortage of options. We have to recommend the patiserie on the road into Gergioupolis, just across the road from Fou Fous taverna. Breakfasts were excellent as were the take away pastries. Many, many calories!

All in all we would highly recommend this villa for anyone looking for a restful break.

Villa Cadiz near Kournas

  • 5 of 5

Travelling to Crete were my husband my three grown up daughters and myself .The Villa Cadiz was spotless/modern and had everything that you needed for your stay. When we arrived - we found essentials in the fridge, plus tea, coffee, sugar etc…and wonderful hand soap and shampoo /conditioners in the bathrooms. All the bedrooms are a good size and very comfortable and clean, as are the living areas in the villa. We all enjoyed using the pool every day as the weather was hot and we ate outside most evening s. The villa has the advantage of being situated in the mountains so therefore there is always a breeze. We went to Kavos beach every day which is a short car ride away and we also used the 2 supermarkets in Kavos plus the butchers shop and bakers. There are also quite a few Tavernas in Kavos and also a couple in Kournas village if you fancy a meal out . Other things - Ants – we were not bothered at all by ants but we did clean surfaces and sweep up any crumbs etc… … Wasps – not bothered by wasps (unlike in Corfu) but they did occasionally come to the edge of the pool for a drink and then flew away. Cats – we love the cats in Crete …they keep away mice and bugs (especially in the countryside) we fed the little cat gladly - but it is up to you. Finally a massive THANK YOU to Jackie and Derek who look after this villa, they do a marvellous job and they enabled our holiday to be stress free and most enjoyable. Fabulous villa – Excellent location - We would definitely recommend it !

Fantastic family hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Having read previous reviews, the villa most definitely lived up to our expectations. The villa was immaculate and the welcome pack on arrival was really appreciated. In terms of facilities, the villa had everything you would need. Pool was a really good size and perfect for my 11 and 7 year olds. The weather thankfully was really hot however the position of the villa meant that you had a constant breeze which was really fantastic. The local village is walkable even for little legs. A car is needed to get to the next village, Kavros which has a beautiful beach and lots of restaurants to suit all. Our favourite spot was the fresh water lake in Kournas which was approx. 10 mins drive from the villa.

The owners ensured there was support on hand if you needed it, we didn't thankfully but it was nice to know it was there. We did however leave some clothes behind and the wonderful housekeeper went our of her way to ensure they were posted back to us - THANKYOU Jackie!!!

Thanks to Chris and Liz for providing us the perfect place for our well needed family holiday.

An excellent villa well positioned with modern, very good quality appliances/furniture/equipment

  • 5 of 5

The villa is excellent. It is exactly as described and enjoys a wonderful position overlooking the bay. It is well maintained and is furnished to a very good quality. The owners were very quick to respond to minor issues (eg broken parasol replaced within hours!). Although the written/picture directions supplied by the owners are good, it would be a good idea to have some signs as you get close to Kournas to point in the right direction to the villa. The owners provide very good information about the area and good restaurants etc. It is essential to have a car when visiting this villa as shops etc are not walkable to. Would definitely return / recommend.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking for a holiday villa. You have the best property on the site.

Got back today from a great week in Crete. Villa is immaculate, great position in the hills with views off the sea and mountains. Great position with loads to do all within a 20 mins drive.

The villa has everything you need it's beyond fantastic we have a great time and it's so peaceful. Three great tavernas in a two mins walk and loads of great places to eat within a few minutes drive.

Would recommend to anyone. Villa done to highest standards. Thanks Chris

Lovely villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described on the website. All very clean and tidy on arrival with regular pool cleaning etc during our stay. Villa is very well equipped with everything you need for a week in the sun. We enjoyed eating outside looking at the spectacular views and spent a lot of time in the pool which was great for our (soon to be) four year old as she could stand up in the shallow end. Welcome pack was very 'welcome' as we had a late arrival.Thank you for letting us use your lovely holiday home.
