A comfortable house with great garden and private pool.

We stayed in villa Vaggelio for 11 nights July 2017. We really recommend to stay here. The house is comfortable, the garden big with flowers and grass and the pool is great. It is quiet at night. you hear a lot of cicadas during daytime. There are three sets of table and chairs so you can choose where you want to sit and from every location the view is stunning. The house is clean and well equipped. Now that the former living room changed into a second bedroom it is perfect to stay here with 4 adults. The host, Maria, is very kind and helpful. As welcoming gift there was a plate with baklava for us, which tasted very well. (Thank you Maria). And later that week she came to bring us some cake, what was very much appreciated. The house is very clean. On Wednesday and Saturday there is cleaning and changing of towels and sheets. There is a lovely cat that comes every day. It likes some food but it also likes the company and attention op people. For your daily groceries you can go to Vrises, 5 minutes by car. There are 3 small supermarkets and a little further on the main street you will find a great bakery. In Vrises you have two restaurants under the trees, next to the river, where you can have breakfast for 5 Euro. Small issue is that Wifi didn’t always work that well (old type router used) We were sorry we had to leave after 11 days and if we ever come back to Crete we would definitely stay here again.

The hostess Maria was really hospitable. She gave us useful advises about places to visit. Thanks to her we had nice dinner in Vrisses at Capri's and spent wonderful day in Sweet Water beach and Loutro. The villa's environment is well maintained and very nicely arranged, the pool was clean, the place for grilling comfortable and cozy. We left some toys for little guests. Kournas lake is must-see, Elafonisi beach is beautiful. Super place for wonderful holidays!

Fantastic retreat, great location

Aspalathos is a gem in a great location. The greenest valley on Crete, authentic houses on a hill Overlooking the valley with sea view. Great private pool, views from your bedroom, only birds and crickets wake you up in the morning. Still the drive to touristic beaches is only 15 minutes. Maria, the host will make sure you have everything you need. The kids have a lot of inside and outside room to play, ours did not want to go home. If your plan is to relax and explore a bit of the west of Crete, you should try this place. Do not try to book a shorefront place, most of them are spoiled, noisy and overpriced. We tried it, and cancelled our booking after 1 night to end up in this great Aspalathos place. Beaches to try from aspalathos: Almyrida, Stavros, Georgioupoli, Kissamos. Day trips: Imbros gorge to frangokastelo, monasteries and beaches around Stavros, outback / old villages south of kissamos. From: Tripadvisor

So peacefull!

+ “Stayed for 2 nights in this lovely Villa in peaceful surroundings yet not too far from the coast or Chania by car. This was not enough. Late and ealy swims (up early each day to view the dawn) were a must -the pool was marvellous, and for eating out nearby there are 2 Tavernas in Vrisses on the riverside, but I also highly recommend Costas in Maza another nearby village which is very traditional (ie no menu) in an otherwise quiet place. Great food. Do go. ” - No bad points to mention. from:

Awesome place to relax

+ “Very spacious & clean villa with a private pool located in a very peaceful surrounding in the hills. Villa looks even better in reality than on photos. Nicely maintained garden with swing seat and barbecue fireplace. Great views from the garden on the hills around, you can see also the sea in the distance. Nice pool with sunbeds & umbrellas. Water in the pool is filtered continuously. 15 minutes drive to the beach at Georgioupoli. There's plenty of restaurants and tavernas in villages nearby. Obviously you need a car to get there and make sure you enter exact GPS coordinates, bu if you want to avoid chaos and noise of big Crete cities, this is perfect place for you. All the best wishes for the owner Maria and her family.” - It would be perfect if water in pool is heated. Be aware beds in other room are rather short, so will be sufficient for younger kids, but not for adults. from:

Dear Rafal, Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you had a great time in our villas. You were great guests too!! You are right, the sofa beds in the living room aren't very comfortable for adults. However, we want to inform you that we are going to make some changes for the next season. The living room with the fireplace, is going to be a bedroom with normal beds and all the essentials. Also,there will be a small living room in the common area. Hope to see you again next year. Kind regards, Maria & Nikos | Aspalathos Villas
