Villa overview - owner's description

The Villa is constructed in Cretan style and located in the village of Megala Horafia, Apokoronas, Western Crete.

Built on a hill top over looking the sea, this village has roots going back to Minoan times. A ten minute drive from beautiful sandy beaches, yet situated in a quiet corner far away from any interruptions the Villas offer peace in beautiful surroundings.

Visit the Ancient ruins of Aptera only 2 km away and see the Roman aquaducts and bath house; archeologists have still not completed excavations here; the site is so big!

Boasting fantastic views of both the White Mountains and Souda Bay, the village is ideal for rest, exploring the Cretan countryside and enjoying a taste of Cretan village life.

We had a excellent stay at Villa Constantina. Initially we thought that the Villa might not be in the best location but it was fantastic for pretty much everything! Just 10 minutes out of Chanea and in the quiet village of Megala chorafia away from it all. Megala Chorafia has three tavernas and one mini market. Aptera is an amazing arcahelogical site just 1 km away.

Ta Aptera taverna( 5 mins drive or 15 min walk) is absolutely superb and being Greek my expectation of Greek food is very high. We ending up eating there every day as it was that good, and great value for money. On average we were paying 35 Euros for 4 people. 2 adults 2 children for food with wine and beer. The villa was perfectly suited to drive to beaches and into town. Chanea is very close and has a wonderful charm . Make sure you visit the old town which is situated around a typically Greek port with lots of tavernas and cafes. At night there is great buzz.. Crete is a large island but with a car( which you definetly need to get around) nothing is too much of a drive. The beach at Agio Apostoli ( 15 mins drive) is fantastic for kids and adults alike amazing clear waters and beautiful sandy beach. The waters to swim in are delicious. We also visited Elafonisi which is just paradise on earth. A blue lagoon with crystal clear waters and pink sand. Truly 10/10. I have not seen better beaches even in the Maldives/ Sri Lanka and Thailand. Elafonisi is a 70km drive however but well worth it. Balos is another amazing beach truly out of this world which is about a half hour drive to Kissamos where you can get a boat. Dont try and drive ther on the dirt track unless you have a 4x4 but bear in mind the car park is then 2km from the beach but the walk from the car park to th ebeach is out of this world.Make sure you find out the boat times from Kissamos in advance as ther is only one a day which leaves at about 10.30 am . If you dont fancy driving that far ( but you should) there are so many amazing beaches in Crete you are truly spoilt for choice. The only thing to be aware of is what is called the meltemi or summer winds. These effect some beaches and mean that they can get very wavy. Agio Apostoli beach is unaffected by the Meltemi so you can always go there as its in a small cove. Check out which I always use when I travel to Greece for a round up of beaches/ tavernas/ places to go etc so you know what to expect.

The Villa itself was managed by Stratos the owner, who was lovely man. Nothing was too much to ask . He would bring us his locally produced wine / olive oil tomatoes among other things. The Villa is traditional stone Villa and very spacious. It has 2 living areas downstairs and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and also a downstairs toilet. From the upstairs you have views of the sea and also from the pool area. 2 doubles and 1 room with 2 single beds. It can easily sleep up to 8 if you use the 2 couches downstairs( day beds) or ask Stratos to provide 2 more single beds. We had some friends, another family of 4 come stay for a few days and it was no trouble at all. The villla has a wonderful outside pool and a bbq area too. The pool is 1.5 meters deep with no shallow end.

Overall we had a wonderful stay at the Villa and if you are look for a truly relaxing holiday with or without kids you will have a great time here. I have traveled every year to Greece since I was about 4 so about 36 years now and for some reason I have always avoided Crete as I thought it was too commercial. How wrong I was. Dont get me wrong there are commercial spots you can easily avoid but Crete has some of the best beaches I have ever seen. If you dont believe me look up Elafonis i and Balos beach online. The photos you will see believe it or not dont do the places justice. You wont believe your eyes I promise you. They do get a bit full but never so much that they impinge on your enjoyment. Enjoy your stay we certainly did.
