“Amazing villa managed by very friendly and helpful people”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Villa Zografia for 9 days, our family (wife and 2 kids) and our friend s family (also with 2 kids). That made 4 adults and 4 children.
The villa is located at a small, nice and quite village just 15min drive from the beautiful city of Chania. There s a beach 2 minutes walk from the villa, while the village has a mini market and a super market where you can find whatever a family might need, plus many locally produced products (from fresh fruits to different kinds of Raki, the traditional cretan alcoholic drink).
However, when we arrived, we found out that the villa was already equipped with food and products you need to have a full greek breakfast for more than 9 days (jams, greek virgin oil, cheese slices, ham, butter, fruits, coffee, sugar etc.).
The villa is very modern and spacious with a good sized swimming pool appropriate even for small kids as it has a shallow part.
The people who own the villa where very friendly, asking us if there is anything else we need and has not been provided. And they were visiting us every 3 days together with the cleaner, just to make sure that everything is fine, giving us a lot of information regarding where to go for swimming and lunch/dinner.
The villa is very smart designed without being pompous that we would not mind staying in and enjoying the garden and the swimming pool. There is even a cafe/bar just next to the villa where you can buy coffee (if you feel too lazy to make your own!), cheese pies, alcohol etc.
They also offer the service of a chef. At the beginning of your day you can arrange for a chef to come and cook for you either outside at the barbecue or inside. So you can go to one of the beautiful beaches around Crete and when you come back the food will be waiting for you! And it is just DELICIOUS! We did try it once and it was one of the best nights we ve ever had.
In total, it s a fantastic place to stay and it s suitable for both families or couples without kids, or even just friends. Totally recommended!

“Very nice villa, well equipped and modern furnitured in the lovely village of Kolymvari!”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We very much enjoyed our time here in the villa. It's a great starting point to explore the western part of Crete as well as a nice place to relax.

We enjoyed swimming pool and terrace a lot which even contains a barbecue station. The house is modern and well equipped so that you dont miss anything. Supermarket, fresh fruit market, butcher, bakery and kiosk are within walking distance. Also the beach (with very clean water) and plenty of taverns offering fresh fish can be reached after a few meters of walking.

The owners are very nice and always helpful!

If you want to explore different parts of the island we recommend having a rental car. If you are more up to simply relaxing, you will find everything you need in Kolymvari!
