Why Valia Kokkinou chose Agios Vasileios
The villa offers a great location within walking distance from a taverna and a supermarket. Very close to the well know sandy beaches of Schinaria, Ammoudaki and Damnoni.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa built with care, that covers 210 m2 and can accommodate up to 10 guests in its 5 bedrooms. The villa also features a 35m2 private swimming pool with children's compartment, BBQ facilities and outdoor dining and sitting area!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Easy booking and excellent communication with property manager.
Villa itself clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Pool and outside area lovely and felt secure as property has it's own gates.
We would have liked a hard copy information pack with things like emergency numbers- we were grateful for the information email we were sent before our holiday but a pack would have been great.
Small problem with aircon one day but technician visited within hours so excellent service.
Beautiful villa in beautiful location!
Wonderful family vacation
We had a group of 8 young and older adults and stayed for 12 nights in May/June 2019. The villa and location were a perfect paradise. Everything we needed was nearby. Close to many beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants and amazing mountain drives. Valia was of great assistance prior to our arrival, and the villa owner Mr Antonis was very helpful and accommodating after we arrived. We would happily recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation away from the busier parts of this beautiful and amazing island.

Dear Trish , we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
A super Villa it had everything we needed, it was clean, well equipped and everything worked.
My husband and I booked this villa for a family holiday to celebrate my 70th birthday. We were 8 adults and 2 grandchildren aged 8 and 10. The location was perfect for us - close to Damnomi beach which we love (5 mins in the car) and to Plakias which my husband and I have visited several times before. Everyone, especially the grandchildren enjoyed the pool which was kept clean and tidy by the pool man who visited every other day. Our host Mr Antonis was there to welcome us on our arrival and the cleaner came 3 times during our 8 day stay and kept the place spotless. We would highly recommend this villa. The service we received from Valia Kokkinou was superb, she replied to my emails within minutes and was extremely helpful in answering my queries. My only suggestion for improvement would be that a folder of local information on restaurants, taxi services and local walks would be useful. We had a wonderful holiday and I would like to thank all those involved in helping to make my 70th birthday unforgettable. I will definitely use Homeaway again in the future.

wonderful villa and location
We just had the most wonderful week at Villa Thalia. The view is sublime -- the pictures do not do it justice. It is windy, but that can't be helped, this is generally true of the Cretan southern coast. AC in the rooms work great.The location is great to explore the center southern coast. Plenty to see there. Plakias is 10 minutes away. A supermarket is 5 minutes away. Wonderful little beach at Shinaria is 10 minutes away (arrive early or you will have a hard time parking!).
2 hours from xania, an hour from triopetra, 90 minutes from Matala. Too far away to go to elafonissi. The swimming pool is very nice, so his the lounge chair area which is well protected from the sun.
The kitchen could benefit from a microwave oven. The wifi works, but don't expect to stream game of thrones.
All in all, a truly wonderful stay in Southrn crete for two families of four (which left a room to spare--10 people would still be comfortable).
Dear Pierre , we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Villa Thalia is located very close to Lefkogia village, on the south coast, where guests can find all the necessities they need such as a taverna and a supermarket in 400 meters walking distance.
Also Plakias is a sea front village, that can be reached within 8 minutes by car and has a sandy and very well organised beach with sun beds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers, etc. The rocks surrounding the beach are ideal for fishing and snorkelling, as well. The road along the beach is also ideal for walking or cycling. Along the main road of the village there are several supermarkets, bakeries, ATM machines, post office, a doctor’s office, restaurants, tavernas, cafes and beach bars while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars and other shops offer a very wide range of products, including local and traditional goods.
Also the well known beaches of Schinaria, Ammoudaki and Damnoni which are definitely considered as the beauty of the south cost, are close and can be reached within a 7 minutes drive.
Sea waters are warm in July and August, but be prepared to bathe in Saharan-style heat and the ‘meltémi’, the northerly wind which regularly blasts beaches. On the other hand the winds also drive away the mosquitoes and break through that solid wall of summer heat. These breezes are known to locals by individual names, depending on where they come from, how long they stay, and what gifts they bring with them.
