“Memorable vacation in a highly recommended hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We stayed with my family in that cosy and nice hotel the previous June and we spent there a week. That was part of a bigger trip we had in Crete and I regret having spent so little time there, since the hotel is ideally located between the old city of Chania and a series of picteresque villages and magnificent beaches in the west of the island. Most importantly the hotel itself and the apartment we stayed exceeded our expectations! It was spacious, clean and it featured its own private terrace and pergola. The owner was very hospitable, always willing to assist us and provide us with useful tips, making it even easier to get around and ensure we go to the right places. We had a memorable stay and we'll surely go back to spend more time there!

Thank you very much Tina! We are very glad when our guests use our facilities and enjoy their stay in Villa Fleria. Next time you should also organize a bbq day (or night) in the garden... the kids would love it.
It will make us happy to have you again in the future, but next time make sure you have more time, so that you can relax and enjoy the beauties of Chania and Spiros' "tips for trips"!

Many greetings to all of you!

I came to Villa Fleria with a friend for a June getaway.

The room was quite large and comfortable, which was a great addition to the lovely location of the Villa. We loved it in a glance!

The owner (Mr. Spyros) welcomed us with open arms and provided with a list of recommendations nearby, since we didnt really have the time for such preparation. Anytime we had a question, he was more than happy to help. He even gave us a tour of his fantastic garden and suggested us to come back in August in order to taste the grapes and figs he produce.

The hotel is 3 minutes walk to the beach and a short walk to the village centre.

If you are not yet familiar to the cretan hospitality, this is the place to have the experience.

We stayed at Villa Fleria during Easter 2013 which, in my opinion, is an excellent period to visit Crete. We are very pleased with this hotel and we really appreciated the efforts of the staff and the owner to help us in every aspect. In that way, the service was personalized, friendly and polite, a real credit to the hotel.
Our spacious room #4 had a double bed and a sofa and it was nicely decorated. The sea view veranda had a wonderful swing in which we spent many hours with our little baby. From the veranda the sound of the waves was a fantastic experience. Another plus was that the owner of the villa provided us a baby-cot and a high chair for free, something which made our life easier. The weather was very nice and the sea excellent for someone to swim. The garden of the hotel is really wonderful & unique. Mr. Spiros (the owner) gave us several valuable advices and tips for trips.
Thank you Mr. Spiros for the hospitality and Irena for your perfect daily freshly squeezed orange juice!

We spend 7 days in this small family hotel and they were our best in our small tour in Crete during summer 2012. Our room #2 had the best view to the sea. Platanias was really near and Maleme was in walking distance. The room was very big, nicely decorated and clean. The family that runs it was really friendly and helpful. This was our first visit in Chania and we are planning to visit it again next year. To this hotel we will return.

This place is wonderful. I've spent time traveling throughout much of Greece and I went with my girlfriend who had never been to Crete. I think of Crete as one of the last places in Europe where it's possible to get away from the urbanization and commercialization that covers so much of the rest of the continent.

We stayed at Villa Fleria for just shy of a week. The Villa itself is lovely, right next to a beautiful beach on which you can go for an evening stroll or morning jog. The rooms are spotless and the owners (a family based in Crete during the summers and Athens in the winter) help with driving directions and restaurant recommendations. They're committed to fair prices (sometimes offering discounts well below market price) and sometimes they will offer to drop you off in Chania and to pick you up hours later (I didn't take them up on this offer myself).

Its location is also ideal. It is the perfect place from which to venture beyond the easy tourist traps and experience one of the few undiscovered places in Europe. It's a few minutes away from Chania (where we ate dinner almost every night), to visit some of the most amazing beaches on the island (Elafonisi, Falasarna, Balos), to venture into the mountains, and to visit dozens of Cretan villages with wonderful tavernas along the way.

We stayed at Villa Fleria 25Sept - 2Oct 2012, and had a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing holiday.

We had great weather and spent most days on the beach, and with a few beach bars very nearby had everything we needed - sunbeds, umbrella, cold drinks and freshly prepared lunch (we like Kosta's bar just down the beach). Mini-markets and a bakery within walking distance would make self-catering very easy but we tended to eat out. There's not a huge choice of tavernas within walking distance, but there are enough places to go to get some good Creten fair.

The bus is very nearby and very easy to get to Chania, where we had a lovely evening. Kolymbari is small but very sweet and has waterside tavernas too.

We hired a car for a couple of days. The drive to Elafonisi is quite a long way, it is beautiful but rather busy and to be honest, we preferred our quiet beach at Villa Fleria with no one else around! But it was great to drive through the mountain villages, be sure to stop at a roadside stall and stock up on olive oil and honey - seriously tasty.

We were made to feel genuinely welcome at Villa Fleria, were given some helpful local tips on places to go, buses, car hire etc, and yes, we got the famous orange juice each morning - delicious! Our apartment was just as it looks in the photos, clean, cool, comfortable, chic style and we had a swing seat on our veranda - a great place to sit in the evening and listen to the cicadas and the waves of the ocean.

Hello Charlie!
Reading your review for Villa Fleria really pleased us. It is our main goal to satisfy our guests and to contribute in making their holidays memorable. Next time you visit Chania, in order to avoid the long drive, you must go to Falasarna which is one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and only 30 minutes drive from Villa Fleria. We will be waiting to welcome you at any time and of course your morning orange juice will be waiting for you!

Thank you once again!

As beautiful as it looks in the photos! And an added bonus is the hugely friendly, accommodating and welcoming family that run it. They gave us great advice and really cared that we enjoyed ourselves and had a memorable visit.
Lovely beach and a swimming pool very close by. Everything you need for a relaxing and peaceful break.
Chania Old Port was very beautiful and a lovely trip for an evening meal and potter around the shops.
Altogether we loved it and it ticked all the boxes.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful time!
