Yiannis Cottage


erfect for a romantic break for 2 people, or a family holiday for 3, Yianni’s Cottage, which overlooks the village Church of Panayia Myrtidiotissa, is the ideal choice.

This self-catering Cottage consists of one double bedroom with A/C, which overlooks your own private Pool. In the traditional sitting/dining room there is a TV, a comfortable L shaped settee / bed and table and chairs. There is also a modern kitchen area that opens onto a terrace situated in the south part and close to your own private secluded Pool and BBQ.

We would like to inform you about some changes we have made this year in our property, in order to have better and higher quality stay.

We provided some space to young artists to express themselves through art. We brought even closer the nature to you and your table with more fruits and vegetables from our garden and fresh eggs from a new small hennery a few meters away from the Cottage.

With respect to the architecture of the area we have upgraded the facilities of the Cottage giving more emphasis to a larger bathroom & shower area. In this area there are parasols and new wooden sunbeds, surrounded by a garden of rich vegetation whilst the bird-song and the aromatic herbs offer special moments to the visitors.

Parking for your car is very close by.

Please look at the introduction to Villa Katerina for more information on the village and area.

Luxury house in beautiful Spilia Crete

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
