About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (single bed in gallery), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Villa Grace, brand new in 2008 and is situated at Cavros/Asproulianos, just off the national road between Rethymnon and Chania. A bus service runs every 30 minutes or car hire and taxis are plentiful. The villa is situated 600m from the beach and with easy travel by car or bike to Lake Kournas for a special day out with the turtles and turquoise waters.

Walk along the winding roads and smell the herbs that play with your senses. The villa has been furnished to an extremely high standard and after the owners have visited Crete for the last 18 years it is certain that Villa Grace is in the perfect location. The golden beach, the large pool, a quiet corner of the garden or the privacy of the first floor terrace ensure this is a holiday destination for everyone. The pool is maintained daily and everything is in place for your perfect holiday.

The evenings can be spent in or out. Cavros has many tavernas, supermarket, car hire, bakery for that early morning hot loaf or just 10 minutes away is Georgopouli with an even larger choice of bars and restaurants. Twenty five minutes in the car and you can soak up the history of Rethymnon and shop till you drop. Tavernas abound here and a drink overlooking the port or in the old town is a must. Chania is in the opposite direction and this historic harbor town is another must to see and do.

Perfect location, nice unit for a relaxing trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well maintained with fully-working AC units in every room. Parking is right outside the unit. The owner is very reachable through phone or email. She gives very clear direction regarding all the spots you could check once you get there. It located only 5min driving from the free beach with free parking, and you only need to buy a drink to get the free sunbed.

Overall, our family really enjoy the stay and would highly recommend if you every try to Crete with family.

A Great Place to Stay in Crete

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Villa Grace. Cool, clean and quiet with a pool just outside the back door. The long, lovely beach is a 5 minute walk. From Villa Grace, it's an easy drive to Rethymno, Chania, even Irakleio and across to Hora Sfakia. Convenient tavernas in Cavros or Georgioupoli.

Sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus in einer ansprechenden Ferienhausanlage

  • 5 of 5

Morgens im angenehm kühlen Schatten frühstücken, abends der untergehenden Sonne zuschauen. Dazwischen den Strand genießen - oder wer mag, lieber den täglich gereinigten Pool - wir haben den Urlaub in Villa Grace sehr genossen. Ein schönes Foto hier, das die Villa im abendlichen Sonnenschein zeigt und neue Sehnsucht nach dem gerade zurück liegenden Urlaubsziel weckt...

Sehr gut eingerichtete Küche, geschmackvolles Mobiliar in den Schlafzimmern und im Wohnzimmer, zwei Badezimmer. Wir waren zu zweit und freuten uns, überraschend viel Platz im Haus und ums Haus zu haben.

Die Vermieterin haben wir die ganze Zeit über (seit dem Kennen lernen im Vorfeld der Buchung) als sehr zuvorkommend, freundlich und unkompliziert erlebt. Und sie war auf dem Handy (auf Englisch) bestens erreichbar - sehr wertvoll!!!

Von Herzen DANKE, Esther, dass ihr eure ansprechende Villa so großzügig fremden Menschen wie uns zum Urlaub zur Verfügung stellt!

Ein schönes Haus mit allen Annehmlichkeiten, die man sich wünschen kann. Mit viel Liebe eingerichtet, so dass man garnicht mehr nach Hause gehen mag.

Tolle Lage, nah zum Strand und den beliebten Städten, abseits des Trubels, ein Katzensprung in die Berge und zum Kournas See.

Thank you Esther and Philip, it was like coming home. Next year, we hopefully will come again

Perfectly placed between the two most interesting cities of Rethymnon and Chania, Villa Grace is in the perfect location. Close to Cavros, a small village with petrol station, supermarkets, tavernas, tour, bike and car hire, bakery, hairdresser, butchers and spa. The beach is literally 4-5 minutes away where there are free sunbeds and tavernas on the beach. Only a few minutes from the town of Georgopoulis with many tavernas,bars, shops and beach front. Villa Grace is an ideal spot to tour the mountains or enjoy true Greek Culture from venetian Forts to high class shops. Lake Kournas with Tavernas and pedal boats is only 10 minutes away. This location has it all. If you want to walk it is perfect. if you want a safe environment and relax around a big pool it is perfect. If you want a beach is perfect. Villa Grace has it all
