I chose this villa because of the views and it didnt disappoint. Unfortunately we were unlucky to have several rainy days when views disappeared! On other hand as we couldnt go out for one whole day, we were so pleased to be in such a lovely house where it was easy to relax and be comfortable.
The house is beautifully bulit with lots of stone and a stunning arch between sitting area and kitchen.
It is a wonderully quiet and peaceful location, yet easy to reach and the town og Georgopolis is a short drive away.
Stefanos provides several recommendations for traditional tavernas and we tried most of them and they were all good
Absolutely perfect house, designed and built with great care and attention - cool stone, wooden beams, antique furniture etc.. Charming, clean and very comfortable. Perfect location on the mountain overlooking the sea. Lovely pool. Feels remote yet only a few kilometres from Giorgioupoli. Nothing to disturb a good night's sleep except the odd goat bell and cicadas in the trees. Great welcome from Stefanos with generous supplies - wine, fresh fruit, oil, bread, pasta etc.. Highly recommended. If you're wondering about the difference between Katerina and Chryssa - Katerina is the first of two villas - therefore Chryssa has totally unobstructed views of the sea. That said - the views from Katerina are also glorious. The garden in Katerina is also bigger than Chryssa with a beautiful outside barbecue/dining area to the rear. Both villas are identical and do not impose on each other in anyway. Hoping to book again for 2018.
We had a wonderful week at the villa. It was the perfect place for us, up the hill, peaceful, quiet, private! It was all in perfect condition, clean, complete! We found a nice welcome pack at our arrival at the villa; bread, feta, fruits, vegetables, water, wine, juice.... cool! Stefanos is a perfect host, he communicates brilliantly and quickly when needed and met us as arranged after following very precise directions! The villa is a 5 minute drive (or 40 minute walk) from the local town full of tavernas and a lovely beach. We were very happy with our week and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Thanks Stefanos!
We had a great 2 week stay in Villa Katerina, Villa is spotless and has everything you need. Views from the villa are amazing, we loved the privacy and the peace and quiet it gave us.
I would recommend a car, there is loads to see in Crete and Georgioupolis is a 5 mins drive away and has a great mix of a Greek village and a tourist spot, especially at night.
Thanks to Stefanos who was a genuine nice guy and very informative about Crete and we felt at home in the villa from day one. Our best holiday yet!!

We had a week here and wished it had been a month. What a beautiful little gem of a place. The owner Stefanos, was super. Informative, helpful and just the right level of being there if we needed but not obtrusive.
The villa is gorgeous and full of character. The pool is stunning, refreshing and crystal clear and the view is just amazing.
If you are looking to relax, unwind in beautiful surroundings with all home comforts this is the place!
