Villa Sasha is a delightful mix of traditional build and contemporary style, with Cretan stone arches, wooden vaulted ceiling, window shutters and comfortable leather sofas, elegant dining with all mod-cons. Situated outside the village of Litsarda in its own gated plot of 4,200 sqm, it has wonderful views of the sea and white mountains. Litsarda village is a 5 min walk away where you will find a pizzeria serving delicious pizzas to eat in or takeaway, and a family run Taverna. The villa is designed with the living/dining room and kitchen all being on the 1st floor so why not share a pizza and a bottle of wine on the upstairs balcony while admiring the amazing sunsets. The private pool (10m x 5m) enjoys the sun all day long and there are ample sun loungers, tables and chairs. There is a stone built BBQ, a great area for alfresco dinning. Set in a peaceful location our villa is best suited for families and couples who want a great place to 'chill out' but with easy access to local amenities and the resorts of Amyrida, Kalyves and Georgioupoli. The villa, pool & garden are private & not overlooked. There is no passing traffic.

We stayed at Villa Sasha for 2 weeks,last few days of Sep and 10 days in Oct 2018. The Villa is lovely and very well appointed, everything you need is there.
Litsarda the local village is very quiet but does have a wonderful restaurant although they did go to their winter hours in Oct only opening on Fri/Sat/Sun which was no problem for us, There is also
A very good Ex pat shop in Litsarda, sells a lot of British branded drinks and groceries etc that you would not expect to find in Crete, a real mini Tesco !
The next nearest village is Vamos 2.5 km away from the villa, here there are more choices of bars & restaurants , two mini markets and a lovely bakery/Coffee shop.
We didn’t rent a car as we are quite keen walkers , having said that the public transport is not that brilliant, you can get to Chania quite easily by bus from Vamos but at weekends the frequency of the buses is virtually non existent.
A taxi to Villa Sasha from the airport will cost about 55euro each way,
One trick the airport Taxi’s have learned from EasyJet is charging you
Extra if you have bag that needs to go in the trunk ! Had to laugh at that one ....
To sum up you cannot go wrong booking this Villa, the Villa & location are perfect .
Beautiful villa in stunning location
We enjoyed our two weeks in this stunning villa with beautiful mountain views. Vamos, was an easy 5 minutes drive away - an ideal place for morning coffee in the square to sit and watch the world go by and for day to day supplies. On a couple of occasions we drove to Chania for breakfast and 'people watching' in the harbour before shopping at the indoor market for fresh fish and meat to bbq that evening. Good tavernas in Vamos and, a little further away Gavalahorie but the villa was perfectly equipped for self-catering with a fantastic bbq area. We loved it!
Thank you for your feedback/review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and loved the views. Everyone loves the BBQ area, it's a relatively new addition but a very good one.....glad you liked it. If you ever find yourselves in Crete again, you would be most welcome to stay again. Best wishes Debra
A superb location and magnificent villa and views
Our villa for the week was spotless and had everything we could wish for.
The only downside was we only booked for a week due to work commitments, that was our biggest mistake, we will be back and for longer next time!!
Everthing in the villa was well thought out and the support staff on site, were very efficient and inobtrusive and very friendly.
Our trip was made easy due to constant contact with Debra and all went to plan.
Would we recommend the villa most certainly, we have been on many villa holidays and this is in the top two of all the villas we have stayed in.
Car is essential and allows you to explore all local sites, Chania is only 30 minutes away and Vamos is the local town with great restaurants and small shops, great local beaches.
Many thanks Debra and team for a very memorable holiday we be returning!!

This was our second visit to the villa and have enjoyed our stay each time. The villa has everything you need for a family holiday, very clean and well maintained. The couple who came to clean the pool were very friendly and gave us a run down off places to visit, restaurants, beaches etc. I would advise that you hire a car as the villa is set in a lovely quite location with fantastic views away from local amenities. The the next village is a local bakery and an English butcher.
The owners of the villa are very helpful from the moment we booked our holiday. I would highly recommend Sacha. Villa to everyone.
Perfect family holiday!
Villa Sasha is in a good location for a peaceful, fun family holiday. Good size, well maintained pool. Car definitely required to reach beautiful beaches and coast lines and to explore the area. Highlights are indeed the views, the local Tavernas..(particularly the one leaving Vamos back to highway - Parasia Rakadiko).Villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Our one little plumbing problem was addressed immediately. Good to note that you cannot go back on to the highway and turn left back to Chania when you have used that way to come in! Have already recommended it to friends and would love to come back.
Fantastic Peaceful and Relaxing Villa
We have just returned home after 2 weeks holiday at this fantastic villa. The location is great and very quiet and peaceful. There are a great number of beaches, restaurants and things to do a short drive a way - we loved the Dream Adventures speedboat from Almyrida. Our children loved the short walk to the great pizzeria in Litsarda itself.
The pool at the villa is a fantastic size - great for swimming and playing in.
The villa itself is great too. It is really spacious, not overlooked and has everything you need. We particularly loved the views from the upstairs balconies and watching shooting stars at night.
We would really recommend this villa for the perfect relaxing family holiday.

Windsurfing, sailing and kayaking is available for the more energetic. There are numerous places to eat, with tavernas lining the seafront.
