Archy – August 2018
Beautiful villa with stunning pool, tennis court and amazing faciities. The villa includes everything you need for a perfect holiday. Great location, near Chania and the very pretty village of Stavros (great beach and eateries). We loved it and the kids didn’t want to leave. Everything was simply perfect. Highly recommended for a great holiday.
Persia N – June 2019
Myself and 6 others stayed at Villa Andrea for a week. On arriving at the villa we were met by a lovely woman who provided us with keys and gave us a tour of the villa. As soon as we walked in we were in awe. The attention to detail was fantastic and all the facilities exceeded expectation. The bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and the en suites were in pristine condition. The tennis courts and pool, which were used daily, were a great size and the lay out allowed for a sense of privacy. The villa was perfect for spending a whole day at, we could walk to the local market and buy food to grill that evening in the outdoor dining area, everything we needed was available and several high quality local restaurants delivered too. The location of the villa suited us perfectly, as Stavros is a small town, we were only a 15 minute walk away from bars, restaurants and the beach, and there was a bus stop 2 minutes away from the villa that took us into Chania. There was lots to do in the area and we hired a car for the first half of the week which allowed us to explore. As the holiday was in June the tourist attractions were not as overcrowded as peak times so we enjoyed visiting local monisteries (which produced their own ice cream, honey, and wine!), going on walks to secluded beaches, trying out the water park and doing day trips by boat. The whole holiday was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, so much so that we are planning on going again next year. I would highly recommend this villa as a luxuary accommodation that works for a variety of ages and group sizes.
