Guestbook comments from the manager

We have a great experience in renting houses for holidays but this one was the best we ever lived in. We were 6 adults and one baby. The extra studio is perfect if there is a baby with you one holiday. The hirer where wonderful - no wish remained unfulfilled. The villa was very clean as well as the swimming pool. The sea is just a few meters away. The beach is clean and off the beaten tourist track. There are a few nice greek restaurants in the neighbourhood. I would absolutely recommend it.

Wonderful Holiday in this Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Everything at this villa was wonderful, I'll try to give you some extra info that you may like to know especially if you are from the UK. It is a very modern villa with a stunning and very large infinity pool,it has a very large front garden with well kept short grass thats perfect for ball games. Inside there are not 1 but 2 curved screen 40"smart TVs, they also have a brand new PS4 with FIFA 17 and NBA 4K games. There are lots of pool inflatables and footballs for kids to enjoy in the pool and on the grass. The hot tub is brilliant and there is also a large BBQ grill in the back garden courtyard along with an outdoor pizza oven. The views across the villa grounds over to the sea (which is literally at the bottom of the garden) are magnificent. There are barely any surrounding properties so peace and privacy are guaranteed. Also Eleftheria the owner is a brilliant host, always available if you have any questions and she is very kind and even bought us a fantastic chocolate cake as a gift midway through our stay.

5 stars ? - it most definitely is and we will be booking again for certain.

Perfect family villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful villa with our older children, their partners and a toddler. The outside area is enclosed ideal for a lively child to run about and explore. Very clean and well thought out pools for young ones to play in safely.

All bedrooms were situated in separate areas with their own bathrooms, this gave us all privacy and space.

The property is well maintained and cared for, exceptionally clean and full of essentials needed for your stay.

Well situated with a local taverna for breakfast and dinner, who also delivered food orders to the home.

I would highly recommend staying here.

A perfect family vacation at Villa Elvina!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the most amazingly perfect week at Villa Elvina!! There were 6 of us, my husband and I, our 2 sons, and their girlfriends. The property is just as beautiful as the pictures, plenty of space for all of us. It was spotless and had everything you need or want. Eleftheria, the owner, was a wonderful hostess. She checked on us often to make sure we had everything we needed. One of our son's got engaged while we were there and Eleftheria brought a cake and a bottle of champagne to celebrate! There are tavernas a couple of minutes away and we had quite a few dinners at the one recommended by her. We will definitely return to this amazing villa!! Just perfect!

Paradise on Crete

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely gorgeous property, impeccably maintained, in a beautiful location. The villa itself is well designed, with wonderful views, and it includes many porches and terraces from which to enjoy the Mediterranean breezes and wonderful view of the bay. The kitchen is well equipped, and the town of Kissamos, five minutes down the road by car, offers a grocery store and restaurant that make it easy to stock the kitchen. And if you don't feel like cooking, there are two tavernas within walking distance. The yard is beautifully landscaped, and the pool area features comfortable seating. There is a beach right outside the villa that slopes gently into a picturesque bay.

The owner, Eleftheria, went the extra mile to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. One night, she even brought us a wonderful home-cooked meal, and a cake to help us celebrate our anniversary!

The property is in a nice location, on the northwest coast. It is only a 45-minute drive to the picturesque town of Chania. We also recommend taking a drive along the wild western coast of Crete (which is easy to do from this location) to the famous pink sand beach of Elafonisi. The coastal road is one of the most beautiful drives we've ever taken. Be warned, though -- spending time at this villa is so enjoyable, that you may find yourself cutting back on your touring plans in order to spend more time here!

Absolutely fantastic choice!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic week at Villa Elvina and would eagerly return. We were 4 adults and 2 toddlers (both between 2 and 3 years old), and we were absolutely spoiled for space (we had initially planned to also have one further couple with their toddler, and the amount of indoor and outdoor communal space would have worked very well for that too).

Our experience was top-notch largely because of Eleftheria's fantastic responsiveness and attention to detail. She was very quick at responding to all queries, both before and during the holiday, and was a fantastic source of tips and advice on local beaches, restaurants and sights. She was also very happy to stock us up with Day-1 basics in accordance with a pre-travel list that we'd sent along, and was extremely kind and generous throughout the trip with little bits and pieces of local Cretan fare. Such a wonderful host!

The house itself is also exceptional. Extremely clean, extremely spacious, great stock of kid-friendly toys and supplies (ie plastic dishes and cutlery, potty, high-chairs, baby towels etc). Landscaping is beautifully done, and the views down to the sea and across to the mountains were lovely.

We didn't do a ton of exploring (two beach days, one morning in Chania, one afternoon nearby at Wave on the Rocks and a few trips to nearby Kissimos), as the kids were overjoyed to just play in the kids pool and on the lawn. It's a quiet, relaxing and peaceful place, with a great high-end feel based on all of Eleftheria's well-thought-out touches. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Perfect just as described and presented

  • 5 of 5

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in your beautiful villa.

By now another family will be starting their vacation and we are now safely back in the UK.

We have stayed in a lot of villas over the years and yours is the best for so many reasons

The thought you have put into providing child friendly equipment and amenities

The kindness you have shown us by your attention to service and help

The gifts you added for our enjoyment

The energy you gave in making sure we had the best holiday possible

Thank you very much Eleftheria. We will not forget you or your lovely home

With very best wishes

Only 25 minutes drive away from Chania through the national road of Chania-Kissamos, it is located the village of Drapanias. It is surrounded by the capes Gramvousa and Spatha of Kissamos bay of the Cretan sea in the Western Crete, only a few meters away from Nopigia village and 3 km away from the town of Kastelli where you will find everything you need: Health Center, Pharmacies, Medical Offices, Super Markets, Bakeries, Cleaners/Ironers, Gas Stations, Post Offices, Banks with ATM.

Drapanias village is both a coastal and a mountain village.

In the mountainous part of the village, with a population of approximately 500 residents, there are picturesque narrow streets and beautiful churches where you will enjoy stunning views. In the village, you can buy goods from grocery stores and mini markets or you can go to traditional restaurants and coffee shops.

A delightful, fully of groves, path leads you to the coastal part of the village, Drapanias. Pure and unchanged from the mass tourism, Drapanias beach, is a good chance to swim in a clean sea (which has already been proposed for blue flag), to relax and enjoy your sunbathing in a calm environment or you may just cross the beach by picking up pebbles and breathing the breeze of the sea.

In addition, Drapanias beach is the suitable place for those of you who love to go for fishing. You can rent a boat under the directions of a local fisherman and go for fishing in Ravdouchas bay. It is also the ideal place for wind-surfers.

You can also go for cruise and swimming in Balos, via the Kastelli port, or you can go for excursions to the famous beaches of Falasarna and Elafonisi.

Alternatively, in Drapanias beach, you may enjoy your sunbathing in a more cosmopolitan environment with deckchairs and umbrellas or even you may visit its coffee shops and its traditional restaurants with a variety of flavours from Cretan kitchen. Just a few meters away, there is camping Mithimna where you can buy goods for your very basic needs.
