About Randi and Kjell Bragstad
We are a small family from Bergen in Norway. Kjell is retired, Randi is working in the public sector. Erlend attend school. There are also 3 grown up children.
Randi and Kjell Bragstad purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Randi and Kjell Bragstad chose Georgioupoli
The villa is a perfect choice for a family or for a group of friends wanting to 'get away from it all' but still be close to amenities. The location is a great starting point for excursions into western Crete and exploring the traditional villages of the Apokoronas area or White Mountains to the south. It's only one hour by car to reach the south coast. The long sandy beach are only a few minutes away.
What makes this Villa unique
Peaceful area with beautiful views. The plot is large,3200 sqm, and gives us a lot of space with only one neighboring house. The garden is planted with a large number of palms, fruit trees and colorful flowers. Our guests appreciate the lawn, and the BBQ in the bamboo covered pergola, and of course the pool. There are plenty of sun loungers and other items of outdoor furniture allowing you to spend time outside in the beautiful garden whilst soaking up the views with only the occasional sound of the local sheep bells to interrupt the peace and quiet.

Fantastic and amazing
A wonderful retreat to peace and quiet in style and luxury and in amazing surroundings.
We felt extremely well looked after and cared for by Randi who was ever so available and helpful.
The location and the house are just amazing. It is very quiet and tranquil. We had a great holiday and could relax and unwind around the house, with easy access to great local food, the sea, and lots of sun. Highly recommended.
Hello Urs. Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet at Villa Karin. We hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards Randi & Kjell
Stunning Villa and setting!
It is impossible to say anything negative about this beautiful place! Situated in a quiet, private spot with the most beautiful views, yet only a few minutes drive to shops, tavernas, beach etc.
Very well equipped and easy to contact the owners if necessary...they were very helpful about places to visit etc.
Beautiful pool area and gardens too! We would definitely love a return visit and more time to explore beautiful Crete!
Dear Sarah & Paul.
Thank you for this nice review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests at Villa Karin.
We are glad you appreciated the peace and privacy Villa Karin offer, because that is what we love most of all with the place ourselves.
We would really love to welcome you back to Villa Karin in the future.
very nice property and lovely location.
We had a lovely stay at the villa, the villa had everything we needed and was well equipped. Our daughter lives in Crete and we visit every year, we have stayed in a number of villas around this area and this is the best one to date and we will definitely stay again.
Everything about Villa Karin was perfect
This is a perfect villa for a family in a very quiet location but only a short drive to good restaurants and the scenery around this part of Crete. We particularly recommend the very reasonably priced Poseidon Restaurant in Geogioupoli on the coast (only 20 minutes away) who have their own fishing boat and display last nights catch for you to choose from. All the restaurants we visited were excellent.
Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that you appreciated the peace Villa Karin provides.
Great overall experience
The house is beautifully located, with great views of the sea and the mountains. Stand alone, but also close to the beach, supermarkets and restaurants. The kids loved the pool. Try out the Tavernas in Kournas. Thank you, we had great holidays.

Beautiful villa, ideally situated between Rethymnon and Chania
Quiet setting on the hills but yet close to the beaches between Georgioupolis and Kavros.
Owners are very kind and attentive. Regularly checking with us if everything was OK.
The house has everything you need for a self catering holiday. and all equipment is functional. Recommend the Terra Cotta shop in the village of Kournas for olive oil and ceramics.
Thank you vert much for for your kind remarks.
We are so glad that you appreciated the peace and the great location Villa Karin offers.
Peaceful, rural location in Apokoronas, which is part of Chania Prefecture. There are many large and small cozy villages in Apokoronas,
