About Georgia-Antonis /Property managers / Owner

My name is Georgia Chalkiadaki born and grew up in Rethymno Crete. Pigi is a lovely traditional village just 10 minutes away from the city of Rethymno. There my father grew up in an old house which me and my husband Antonis decided to replace it and build the house of our dreams. Only the 17m well can now remember that house!!! Me and Antonis had the original and profitable idea to build the first Sportsvilla in Greece inspired from our two loves: the luxury holidays and sports. Antonis is a gym instructor (we are also owners of a local gym) with Sports studies in Athens University and Master studies in Bristol University. We work together and have three very young children living in village nearby Pigi. I really love travelling around the world and I am sure that I can be very useful during your stay in our villa.

Georgia-Antonis /Property managers / Owner purchased this villa in 2015

A fantastic place to stay in Crete!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 20 days in Sports Villa and enjoyed every minutes here. The villa is well equipped modern house with gym, swimming pool, etc. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful in every aspect. The location is also perfect: you can live in a quiet small village while the 2nd largest city (Rethimno) is only a few minutes driving. You can also reach practically every corner of Crete within a maximum 1-2 hour driving. Highly recommended!

The perfect place with wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was perfect, better then the picture show it off. It's really well presented, modern, clean and spacious with 3 large bedrooms, enough space for two families. An awesome party house. The villa has everything you need, smart TV's with Netflix, PlayStation, Gym, jacuzzi, sauna, pool table, a well stocked kitchen, great bbq area, kids play area. You can keep yourself entertained for a while.

The Pool is perfect for kids, its got a cordoned shallow area where they can play without worrying about them going into the deep end. The gym is well equipped, again everything you need. The owner Antonis runs a gym so he knows what he's doing in that department.

The villa is situated in a cute little village called Pigi, it has a small super market, a butchers, bakers and a pharmacy. It also has a couple of decent restaurant that serve local food at cheap prices. The location suited us nicely, 15 minutes away from the touristy bustle of Rythemno, 5 minute drive to the local beach and central to beautiful local beach towns such as Bali and Panormo.

For us the most delightful aspect of the renting this villa was the hospitality of Antonis, he ensured we were enjoyed our stay. He recommended a couple places to go, restaurants to eat and was always available if we had a question. He also had the villa serviced half way through our stay which we were great full for

I would highly recommend this villa, it really made our holiday and for the price, it's worth every penny.

Thank you Antonis for looking after us, I'm sure we'll be back soon.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the sports villa in April/May 2016 travelling as a group of friends. We were a bit nervous at first as we seemed to be in the middle of nowhere and a car is essential. However we were soon over the moon when we arrived at the villa. It is absolutely beautiful and every single detail has been well thought out. The rooms are spacious and decorated lovely, lovely living and dining area done to a high standard, very well equipped kitchen and they even left us bits in the fridge to start us off. Playstation 4, smart TV and all mod cons, lovely pool which they came to clean whilst we were there. Great outdoor BBQ and pizza oven and a top terrace with a pool table and seating area. The gym was well equipped, full sets of free weights and barbells, free standing boxing bag, treadmill, cross trainer, kettlebells and smith machine. Perfect after a workout to finish off with a sauna and a chill in the hot tub which is a great size and will fit approx. 5 adults. Garden area to the front with a football goal and seating and modern washing machine, hairdryers, ironing board and iron etc all on hand. It was also a surprised to discover bicycles which we used and had a great laugh. Approx 3min walk from the villa you will find some little shops consisting of a supermarket, pharmacy, butchers, bakers and traditional olive wood workshop, also a few tavernas. A short drive down the road (10min max) and your in a busy little town with lovely shops, beach, restaurants and tavernas, traditional bakery, supermarkets etc and a 15min drive from the villa and your in the main town of Rethymno. Rethymno has everything you could want. The old town consists of beautiful boutiques and high end shops such as rolex, ted baker etc lovely fountains and churches and some amazing places to eat. Further up in the newer area and there are more traditional Greek shops mixed with high street shops and beach front restaurants. The scenery is beautiful with lots of mountain walks, monasteries and ancient ruins nearby. Had a fantastic holiday and the owner Antonis really looked after us and made sure we had everything we needed and spoilt us with ice creams and Greek meals. Will definitely be going back next year.

One word- fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

My mother, three boys (aged 4 to 10) and I had an amazing stay at the sports villa in Crete. Every element of the stay was perfect, I've summarised these below.

The villa: fabulous villa, even better in reality than in the photos! Every need was thought of, the interior was so well designed, laid out and everything was to the high specification.

My boys loved spending time in the pool, gym and playing football whilst my mother and I relaxed in the jacuzzi and Sauna. Antonis was such an amazing host, we felt welcomed to Crete as soon as we arrived, and he even gave us a bottle of grappa and essentials in the fridge:) we also met his lovely wife, both such kind welcoming people:)

The location: a great location, the village had a mini market and butchers/bakers where we enjoyed fresh bread and cakes each morning. We also visited the local restaurant and had a lovely meal one evening. It felt tranquil, yet in just 10mins drive we could be in the heart of rethmynon enjoying the beautiful harbour.

There isn't anything we would change about this perfect stay, and would definitely recommend to anyone...we will certainly return again!

Nice to meet you...

  • 5 of 5

Some person who advised us to visit Crete for our holidays this year was really wise. Especially the delightful villa in Pigi, Rethymno. I’ll speak about the first sports holiday villa in Greece. My wife and daughters are big fans of fitness and working out, so it was an easy decision to make.

We found there professional sport equipment and a comfortable, modern designed house to enjoy our stay in. Antonis and Georgia were very polite and friendly hosts and gave us a beautiful welcome basket full of local delicacies.

Special Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It has been a while, but I like to remember those days. Living in this villa was a unique experience. Sportsvilla is known as the first sports holiday villa in Greece and we may say that they deserve this title. We found very comfortable and modern rooms and facilities. Also the owners were very polite and helpful.
