Lovely villa and pool in quiet peaceful location very close to Lake Kournos. Clean and nicely decorated, helpful caretaker. Well equipped,; bedrooms downstairs but in heat of Summer this works well. Garden could do with a few more trees etc but a very minor downside. more

The living area was roomy; the kitchen well-equipped; two bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. The exterior space has been well-planned: you can lie on sun loungers by the pool or sit on the balcony or if too hot, you can relax... more

We had a wonderful time staying two weeks in your villa. We found there was everthing we wanted with respect to both soft and hard furniture. We spent some days totally at home in your very private swimming pool and garden. With the sound of bells coming from passing sheep herds in was also a very romantic spot close as... more

How to get there
Airport: Chania: 29.8 mi
Ferry: Souda: 21.7 mi
By Air

Chania Airport - 40 minute drive
Heraklion Airport - 1 hour 30 minute drive (note Heraklion is sometimes spelt Iraklion. In fact many Greek names have several translated spellings. Hania = Chania etc.).

Charter flights from Europe are quite numerous from April until the end of October. There are a lot more flights to Heraklion than to Chania, making them often cheaper (and not as heavily booked) than flights to Chania. Charter flights get cheaper as the departure date approaches however you do run the risk of not getting the flight you want, or in peek season any flight at all.

Easy Jet fly direct from Gatwick and Manchester to Heraklion.

Almost all scheduled international flights transit through Athens where you then take a scheduled domestic flight to either Chania or Heraklio...
