Vlamis Villas
Reviewed July 9, 2011

Vlamis Villa Junior (note there are other Vlamis Villas on Crete) is in a fantastic spot near Stavros with great sea and sunset views over the large swimming pool. There is also access to and a protected inlet (ie quite calm) and the ocean via the slipway at the foot of the Villa, but it's not a beach. By car it is about 25 mins to Chania and about 5 mins to local supermarkets, beaches and a good range of restaurants which is important because this is full self catering. The local bus comes by twice a day, but a car is probably a must. There is plenty of parking, some of it under cover. Driving around Crete is pretty easy with only a few very narrow roads. Nothing is terribly far, eg 90 mins to Samaria Gorge and two hours to Heraklion.

The booking agent, manager and owner are lovely people and very helpful with more than enough English for the average tourist. But, the owner and friends spent a fair bit of time at their villa, which felt a bit intrusive.

But, this little gem could be so much more with better furniture (eg cane beds, mostly singles) and accessories (the mattresses, linen and pillows [one each] were WELL past their use by date, the kitchens were very basic given this is self catering) and a bit of maintenance, eg shower heads and clothes lines. There are only one or two washing machines and they are inside apartments, so not accessible to all guests.The solar hot water systems are shared between rooms, so can find yourself without! Beach towels and internet access to all villas would be nice too.

Room Tip: Ask for the newer suite or the one with a washing machine, depending on your priorities.
