Spila is located on the edge of the plain of Chania 2 km from Kolymvari, 22km from Chania city-centre and 35 km from the airport of Chania. The village is near the junction with the national road which allows access to Chania in less than 20 minutes. Close by, there are 1 small mini market and a bigger one (2 minutes drive) where you will find provisions; fresh bread, fruit and vegetables and indispensable articles. You can also order by phone and the owner of the mini market can bring anything you need at the Cottage!!!

The village of Spilia is named after the Cave of Ai-Yiannis Erimiti which is to be found in the west part of the village on the hill above the Villa (1 km away), on an impressive site of great historical importance and exceptional views of the olives groves, the sea and the White Mountains.

The Cave of St John the Hermit looks like an oblong arcade. Its length is about 135 meters and the scientists believe that it is essentially a prehistoric river bed.

The history of the cave is associated with the ascetic life of the hermit John, since he lived there – according to researchers – in the 6th century.

A short distance away from the Villa (100m away) is situated a dense vegetation of extremely high Plane Trees, that are centuries old.

Under the trees is a very pleasant and local tavern which offers traditional food.

In charming Kolymvari (5 minutes by car) you will find the Iera Moni Gonias Monastery and the Orthodox Academy of Crete.

In the village there are many pleasant tavernas, restaurants and kafenions, a post office, a medical center, a supermarket and bank / ATM’s.

The area is famous for its fish, landed fresh daily from the harbour, the fragrant wine of the Kissamos area and the awarded olive oil with it’s low acidity rate.

Spilia village is ideally located for you to visit the most important coasts of Crete, the well-known Falassarna with the immense sandy beach, the ancient town and the enchanting lagoon of Elafonisi, attractions awarded by international organizations for their clearness and the multi coloured sand formations. In the wider area is set the beautiful lagoon of Balos at Gramvousa where you can enjoy all the tints of blue and green.

Night-life, beach bars, wind-surfing and other extreme sports can be found in abundance all in the Platanias area which is not far away.

The famous Samaria Gorge, and many other wonderful Gorges & walks in the countryside are another option.

We can also offer you several sevices::Car rentals, Transfers,Excursions to Samaria gorge or other gorges, guided walks,4X4 safari to Balos,Cooking services and Cretan cooking lessons, Spa, treatments, etc
