Explore the Architecture Beauty

Many people find shadows kind of scary, and they are a metaphor for the things that would bother you if you saw them regularly, or focused on them. Some also find the sun on their face to be rather pleasant, especially while sunbathing. But mostly our imagination creates scary images that are based on our bad days.

Be the best version of yourself, never regret what you did and stay always positive. Your shadows may become bigger and bigger but this means nothing when you are facing the sun. Another castle you can visit, it is Castle of Killini – The castle and the ancient white-housed village belong to the Calixto Hesperos family, a branch of the Hesperos familiarly that owns the castle since the longtime eleventh century. The place is open for guided tours – you can visit the honor room, the dining room, copper kitchen, wine cellar, prisons, bedrooms, and the main tower.

There is something special about castles and you will be able to see it with your own eyes! Old mysterious constructions won’t leave you indifferent as soon as you see them.

And if you stay at our hotel, we have something very interesting to offer you – we have partnered up with several tour operators and are ready to provide you with some special discount offers.



Luxury house in beautiful Spilia Crete

Rated 5.0 out of 5
March 20, 2024

We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Katerina for a glorious month – swimming, walking, sightseeing, reading and entertaining. The beautiful house is stocked well – there’s nothing you’ll need! The amenities are endless and high end. The gated property is very safe and very clean. The salt water spillover pool, the barbecue, the wood burning fireplace are all amazing features we valued. The house is situated, without being crowded, surrounded by olives groves, on a hill with breathtaking views of both the mountains and the sea – we took so many pictures. The restaurants and pharmacy and grocery are all an easy walk.

Manolis is a kind professional attentive host and most generous with very special greek treats – he also arranged for all our transportation needs which helped greatly. Chania is about 20 minutes away so day trips are easy. This house is a must for your stay in Crete !

Winter in Yiannis Cottage!!

What a surprise!! We booked this Cottage knowing that it s more a place for the summer. We booked it because of the heated salted pool and we didn;t regret it. We read the reviews about the place and the owner but we couldn’ t expect that during this period of the year our experience could be SO fantastic! The place is different that the photos!!It s more and more beutiful!!The owner made a renovation which just finished the dates we get there. New pool tiles with a beautiful color which suits perfectly with the wonderful garden. The villa has new frames and doors, and the quality of the materials is very very good. Linens and towels (the pool towels are SO big) are provided and everything elase we asked was there. Manolis is an intelligent man we talked a lot and we wish we could spend more time with him. We were very lucky because we had 1 sunny week and we enjoyed the wooden sunbeds and the nest (both new i think). We are back in Germany and we have already booked this Villa for this April.

We were having a hard time writing a review of this home because we don’t want anyone else to know about it. This Villa is spectacular. Close attention was paid to every part of this house. It is all remodeled (new cabins in the bathrooms) and clean. The layout is Perfect for any family. The pictures do not do any justice as to the size of the home. The outdoor view from ground floor and first floor is just beautiful. There are plenty of places to sit and relax. The heated and salted pool is the perfect size with lounge chairs surrounding it. I confirm that the salted water is amazing and you make feel much better than being in a conventional pool. We took a risk of being in December in this villa but we never regrated. The combination of a heated pool and a fireplace made our holidays perfect. Manolis was absolutely wonderful and if there were any problems he was available by phone immediately. Manolis was extremely accommodating and truly made us feel at home. I have stayed in the area for many years and so far this is my favorite of all my rentals in the West Crete area. Ballos ,Elafonissi and Chania were so nice at this time of the year . We also went to some secret villages and local taverns where Manolis suggested. The location of the Villa is ideal to explore the region of West Crete.Thank you Manolis for lending me and my family your home. It’s a week we will never forget.

Beautiful setting in a small village. Sea views, beach about a 10 min car journey. Fabulous pool and good quality sun loungers. Well equipped villa with everything you need to cook or BBQ. Great local, friendly taverna 2 mins walk away. Host Manolis was so helpful, responding to any query very quickly and providing us with lots of Cretan specialties and treats. We had a great stay – wish we had booked for longer !

Lovely Villa in a great semi-remote location, beautiful grounds, garden furniture and pool which we all hugely appreciated and enjoyed We had everything we needed already there, but host Manos ensured we had an amazing stay, by leaving a welcome hamper of food and drink, bringing more lovely homemade treats during our stay and was there if we needed anything else in super fast time There are 2 Tavernas within walking distance and a shop not too far by car, as well as the lovely Kolymvari just over 5 minutes away with its shops, restaurants and harbour Would happily stay here again without hesitation
