“A great, luxurious vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Falasarna Villas are wonderful. Choose the outside villa and you have an open, distinct view of the sea at Falasarna Beach. The inner villa does not have the same water view, but you enjoy a protected garden sitting area.
The villas are dramatically set on a steep cliff with a view over the village of Platanos.
Both villas are identical on the inside. They are very clean, well-equipped, spacious, and nicely decorated. Each villa has its own swimming pool.
The helpful and friendly owner of the villas is Vasilis, a man who we now consider a friend.
Although set in a rural area, several wonderful restaurants are also in the area. One of the restaurants is Zaharias. It is excellent and nearby.

I spend ten days in the falasarna villa with my family , the villa is very nice: spacious, calm, well-organized, well-equipped. The villas is located just outside the village of Platanos, you need a car to get around. I'm sure I'll be back again next year!!!

We revisited the villas this year and were pleased to find them in the same good condition as the last time. This time we were many people and rented both villas and that was also a very nice experience. The household is good, the pools are kept amazingly clean without the smell of chloride. The kitchen is well- equipped and you never have to worry about detergents and so on. There is also always enough towels and bedspreads as the houses have well- filled linen closets. The aircondition is well- functioning. The owners are helpful and care-taking.
The village of Platanos has improved it's services with a new bank with ATM, the supermarked IN.KA has most of what you need. Tha village also has a butcher and two more bakeries. Of course there is the wonderful restaurant called Zaharias with it's owner Fotis Volakakis who takes his pride in serving traditional greek food using ecological vegetables. The oil and wine is also of own produce and we love it! He knows of all the events in the area and this time he also helped finding a great guide; Stellios, who took us on a mountain walk on the Penincula ending on the spectacular Balos beach. We will come back!!

Modern, comfortable villas located just outside the village of Platanos, foremost western Crete, is a must-be place to observe the spectacular sunset in the Mediterranean, absorb the indigenous rural life of Greece and doing these in style. The pool is a great amenity to splash in after a long day in the Falassarna beach - one of the top rated beaches in the world - which is a short drive away. One can walk to get spring water from the mountain top and visit the village which has 3-4 taverns. Also, a convenient store is a walking distance away. The full kitchen provides opportunity to prepare your own dishes, while you are sipping some great Cretan wines (not found outside the island) with the sunset. In the morning, you can feed the sheep roaming freely around. A great place for a honeymoon or a group of good friends or family to spend a few memorable days in Crete. The hosts are so hospitable, beyond what you usually are accustomed in Greece. And don't forget the Tomato Festival where you can hear some of the old Cretan music (like the one in Zorba) and mingle with the locals. Have been going there for four years.

Room Tip: Go there during off season to avoid crowds on the road and taverns.

Amazing place on the north-west side of Crete near to one of the most famous beaches in Europe, Falassarna! Very quiet, clean and comfortable, suitable either for family or holidays with friends. Enjoy spectacular sunsets with remarkable view and if it's a windy day, as it's located on a mound, don't worry, there is a well organized windbreaker system. Very important also the host couple's hospitability and always kind and friendly mood and the high quality of services that they provide. I would recommend it for sure!

The villa we stayed was very attentive, clean with all amenities in an ideal location. The quietness and the view of the area makes you calm. Just 5 minutes from the beautiful beach of Falaserna
