3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, private swimming pool with sea view
Why Owner chose Makris Tichos
The villa is situated near some of the best beaches in Chania. It combines sea view alongside with mountain view in a quiet, private environment. It has all the modern amenities and equipment that a family needs. There are supermarkets, restaurants, playground, bowling, mini golf areas and beach bars nearby. The old town of Chania is just 10 minutes by car and the villa is situated in such a location that it is convenient for small excursions. Upon the guests' arrival there is always a welcoming basket and fresh products from the farm in the fridge. It is a house suitable for families as we have taken into careful consideration the needs of a family with young and older children as well as for older people.
What makes this Villa unique
The sea view is unique whether you are in the swimming pool, the veranda or the terrace. The barbecue is located just outside the kitchen and near the swimming pool and there is a window with view of the swimming pool so a parent can always keep an eye on the children.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a brilliant two weeks stay at Villa Gaia. We have three children and there was ample room for all of us. The villa is beautifully laid out and maintained. The cleaning service is great and the villa is very well equipped. The WiFi was great and everything exceeded our expectations.
We loved our leisurely breakfasts on the verandah, overlooking the ocean and our late afternoon cooling off swims in the pool. The local taverna, 5 minutes walk from the property, is also wonderful - serving beautiful local Cretan food. The villa is only 5 minutes drive from some great beaches, and 15 minutes from the old port of Chania.
I can not say enough to praise the communication and management of the owners. All issues were dealt with swiftly and without fuss. And we were greeted with lovely fresh produce from their small farm, along with some beautiful food made by the owner’s mother, Marina, who lives next door. Their generosity was really appreciated and made us feel very welcome.
I highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to visit western Crete. We will definitely be back!
Excellent stay, fabulous Villa, superb location
We have just come back from a wonderful 2 weeks at this villa. The villa exceeded our expectations in every way. The cleaning service twice a week was exceptional which included changing the sheets and towels which was great. We were well looked after by the Grandmother who regularly left us treats. The location is excellent and my husband hired a road bike and went on some amazing rides through the mountains. The location was superb, only 15 minutes into Chania. We eat at some amazing restaurants. We went on the book trip to Balos and Grumvosa, the scenery was stunning. We hired a private speed boat on our last day which I would recommend, we spent the whole day out at sea from 10.00am and returned after watching the sunset at 8.30pm. Fabulous holiday. Thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Villa Gaia. I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay. It's a pleasure for us to have guests like you and your family. We are looking forward to have you back soon
