Set in almost 5,000 sq.m of extensive gardens Villa Chrissi is a semi-detached house with two private swimming pools both indoor and outdoor. All the facilities are high standard throughout offering the perfect holiday 'get away'.

The space

Villa Chrissi can accommodate 6 people in beds. The villa is located in Gerani village, 2 km away from the beach!

The villa adjoins the owners house (who does not stay there during the summer). All the outdoor areas of both houses are private and only for our guests!

Layout of our villa:

The outdoor area attributes many furnished areas for relaxation, a barbecue with a dinning area and an enormous vegetable garden at our guests dispense!

Also found outdoors is a 42 sq. meters infinity swimming pool with breathtaking sea views and a small farm with a horse, goats and many species of birds!

On the ground floor of the owners house there is another 35 sq. meters ecological indoor heated swimming pool with view and direct access to the outdoor areas. The pool area has a big glass partition and when opened gives you the impression of being outside next to the outdoor dining area. In this location you can also find gym equipment and a shower. (the ground floor area is totally independent from the owners house and it is only used by our guests)

Finally in the area between the two swimming pools, sitting under the shade of a grape vine there is an outdoor secondary kitchen and the barbecue with a dining table.

This 100 sq.m house accommodates 6 people in beds but, up to 8 people if necessary. Internally the villa offers luxury accommodation that is separated into two floors.

The ground floor consists of the main hall, storeroom, open plan kitchen, dining and living room with a panoramic sea view of the gulf of Gerani. Additionally there is a bedroom with double bed and a bathroom.

On the first floor there are 2 more bedrooms that are served by another bathroom. One with a double bed and the other with two single beds.

- Great location! Close to a large village where you can find everything like shops, bakeries and taverns and also close to Rethymno town.

- Close to the best sandy beaches on the North coast, such as Episkopi and Georgioupoli beach.

- The villa is attached to the owners holiday house, but you will have access to the whole outdoor area of both houses with full privacy (owner absent during the summer months)!

I could not speak higher about Villa Chrissi... what a memorable stay. Between Kostas's helpful communication and suggestions, to dinner with Mr. Manolis this has become our new favorite place to stay. The pool is lovely both indoor and out, and the house is clean and comfortable. The astetic of it all is just wonderful too, including their place to pray that Mr. Manolis and his wife painted and created together, right on site. My family dubbed him the most interesting man in the world as he truly does it all... and this Villa comes with more than enough. He has a wine cellar with his own homemade wines, the entire land is a growing garden, and a horse who fits her name, meaning "most beautiful." The Villa is attended to almost everyday by someone, but I can promise you don't at all lose a sense of privacy. They're there to enhance you're experience, and they did for us just that. Crete is beautiful, but you do need a long stay to be able to see it all. However, I would trade two days at Villa Chrissi over anywhere else. For our family trip, it was much a quieter and less touristy experience of Greece. Thank you again Mr. Manolis, we are very grateful!!

an amazing and beautiful place which we would recommend. had everything you could need with the added bonus of fantastic views and privacy. we were two couples in our late twenties and early thirties and loved the location. Yes you need a car to local resturants but you need this with most nice places. the closest town is gorgeous , there a tourist section near th beach but the port and cobbled street are stunning an loads of great restaurants. We spent hours around the pool and having the outside kitchen was fab, meant we were always outside and together. We had breakfast every morning using the outside kitchen and didn't use the inside one, th area had both sun and shade so ideal for all. the indoor pool was fresh but really nice when the outside was about 29c . anyone would be lucky to stay here. loved it

This was our first air bnb experience and we were all very impressed. Kostas was very responsive with clear information and suggested a very reasonable car hire company. He provided information before we booked, replied to every email immediately after we booked and his colleague Sophia looked after us whilst we were in Crete. Manolis is the property owner and the villa is amazing. It is perfect for a group of people and we spent hours by the pool taking in the beautful views and making use of the outdoor kitchen (which is fully equipped to the point that we didn't even touch the indoor kitchen). The infinity pool is beautiful and looks amazing at sunset and lit up during the night. The property is immaculate and the cleaner properly cleaned during our stay (as in cleaned floors and changed beds not just changed towels). Manolis was vey accommodating and even did a shop for us before we got there including home made olive oil. We spent many an hour drinking g&ts by the pool with handpicked lemons from the Orchard (!). We would strongly recommend that you hire a car: The drive from the airport is very easy (about 1 hour 20 drving slowly)and it will save on expensive taxi rides in and out of the town or to beaches further afield. The old town is lovely with plenty of restaurants to choose from- we had a very posh dinner at avli and enjoyed every mouthful but there are plenty of cheaper places to eat that looked just as good. We loved our stay here and we are planning our return trip! Thank you Manolis and Kostas and Sophia

This place is AMAZING! Could not recommend it enough! It is extremely beautiful and is a great place if you want to get away from the city life and enjoy nature and beautiful Crete views. The host went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and guided us every step of the way. Even provided homemade wine and did grocery shopping for some essential food upon our arrival. Which was lifesaving since when we arrived it was a holiday and shops were closed, so it was nice to have some food to snack on before dinner. Also, my family and I spent a lot of time in the indoor pool, and outdoor kitchen. It was truly paradise! :D

Nice villa in the mountainside above a small village. The view is amazing and we had large vultures circling above us as we were eating breakfast. We also saw an eagle on the road as we drove in to town. It might be a bit remote for some, but we had a great time. As long as you got a car it wont be a problem. You rent a part of the villa, and it might look a little smaller than in the pictures, but we had more than enough space. The owner, who is not Kostas, was very helpful and even came with us to recommend some places to eat. We also had great service from Kostas and his team before and during the stay.

We had an amazing stay at the Villa Chrissi. Kostas and Sophia gave us a lot of information before we arrived and we felt very Welcome. Mrs. Doris gave us a tour to the beautiful Villa and was always there for questions. The Villa is as beautiful as the Pictures shows. We really had a relaxing stay and enjoyed our self’s very much. Sophia stayed in contact with us during the whole trip. We really recommend this place! Thank you so much!
