Photos and Description of this Maleme holiday villa

Independent rustic villa, nice views, private pool, sleeps 2-6, fully equipped

The traditional hamlet of Metohi is located just outside the Maleme resort, 3km from Platanias, (see map) near the corner of western Crete. High quality and sensitivity in harmony with the cretan environment and its history are the main characteristics of our establishment.

Modern reality staggers before the dominance of stone, the simple Cretan hospitality, the love and respect towards the original character of the villas.

As you open the door of the villa of your choice, you open a small page of Cretan history. You feel the influence the primordial materials of wood and stone had on the creation and the dreams of the Cretan people.

The villas are only 800 meters from the beach and 500 meters from supermarkets, tavernas and drug stores. The city of Chania is only 15 kilometers away and the airport of Chania 25, both easily accessed.

Here in Metochi, the past meets the present for you who will choose to live the experience.

A perfect week away for two

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely, perfect size for the two of us. Exactly as described and had everything that we needed. the location was perfect 5 minute drive from the beach, supermarkets, restaurants bars and more. The owners were extremely helpful and were only a call a way if anything was needed. Even called a taxi for us so we could have a driving free night out! Couldn't have been a better week for two.

Beautiful villa, garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a fantastic week in the villa and lazing around in the garden and pool. It was perfect for us, clean and well presented. Georgos was a lovely host who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Thinking about returning next year as we had a perfect stay!

Perfect for a couple

  • 5 of 5

The place is perfect for a couple, it has loads of character and just about everything you need. It's reasonably close to the beach, I'd say at least a kilometer but walking there in 35 degree heat is not for the faint hearted. The villa is not really set up for self catering due to the lack of worktop space but its perfect for making sandwiches etc for lunch. The tavernas along the beach front take care of all your evening meals. The garden is totally private and well kept ( watch out for the cactus plant though!). The pool is great for cooling off, too small for swimming though. Overall, if your looking for a quiet romantic getaway , away from the crowds, you can't do much better than this. Would definitely go there again.

Wonderful, Authentic, Historic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in both units. Kamares is great for a couple and the other is great for a family. The property is very historic, very close to the lesser tourist end areas of chania. Great for relaxing, by the pool and exploring the best part of Crete, the area around Maleme and the west of Crete. Our host, Georgios couldn't have been more helpful, and became a good friend, breaking bread and having dinner with him at the Villa several times...he gave us real personal service and offered us a look into the the real life of a crete an. The Villa and her host was a very wonderful experience. Don't overlook this Villa

Fabulous and Unique Villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at this Villa.A memorable stay in a unique miracle of architecture. In a peaceful location.The villa is even more fabulous than it looks.. is a very unique home that has all the comforts one could need , was big enough for a couple. The villa is a great spot to tour the island from as it is away from the busy tourist areas but close enough to get to them in a hurry. We definitely will be back again in the future!!!!

Nothing short of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The point about Villa Kamares is that it's a home. It's got that depth of character and feel which only comes from a property owned by people who use it. And love it. So staying here feels like being a guest in a friend's home. Comfortable is not the right word because that suggests it's normal. And it's not. The light, the air - especially the cooking! I could go on and on. And I could go back and back. The only problem is how depressing it is leaving Villa Kamares and the worry that it might be booked next time we want to go...
