Great holiday
Thank you Jan and Dimitra, also Kaiti and the team, we had a lovely holiday. We really liked the Villa Varvara! We had never stayed in our own villa with our own pool before, so it was a real treat. Communication beforehand while booking etc was excellent. Arrangements to access the property were clear. Everything was very clean and had been prepared carefully with Covid precautions. The one double and two twin rooms were perfect for our family. We enjoyed the various balconies particularly the 'mountain view terrace' as we called it where my wife and I had our , morning coffee and cake each day looking out to the White Mountains. We all really enjoyed the pool which was a good size and really clean. Plenty of terrace chairs and loungers. Jan, Dimitra, Kaiti and colleagues were really helpful, and kind. Sadly we are not able to come to Crete every year but would definitely revisit Villa Varvara if circumstances allow. Thank you.

A little bit of paradise
This was our first visit to Crete, and wow what a beautiful place! The villa had everything we needed and was a real home from home. a welcome pack of bread, butter, veg, fruit, water, wine had been left for us which was really generous. The beach ,restaurants etc were a couple of minutes walk and the food was fantastic. We Walked into Kalyves following the path on the hills with absolutely stunning views and also took a bus in to Chania which is worth a visit. We didn’t venture much further as wanted a real chill out which we certainly had. Thank you Jan, Kaiti and the team, we loved it!

Wonderful Villa Varvara in Almyrida!
We are a family of 5 and we were very happy with our stay at this villa. A romantic and fantastic villa, recently modernized to a very high standard. The Villa holds everything we need for a beautiful holiday and the welcome pack of wine and basic provisions were gratefully received. Well equipped , comfortable and spacious with a lovely garden with tables and chairs and great private pool. There are multiple terraces and always a place to sit in the shade. The big terrace on the first floor is great for spending the evening after a hot day. It would benefit from some literature on the local amenities and attractions although there is a internet smart TV which you can access information through. A great villa in the very pretty village of Almyrida. It's 5 minutes walk on a flat road from the village where there are lots of nice restaurants and a lovely sandy beach and we have not rented a car. Villa Varvara is next to its brother Villa Iannis but we had plenty of privacy, they Villas have separate entrance, separate parking and lovely prive it pools. The Villa was very clean and well maintained and Anne and Richard were very helpful. Jan the owner is very friendly and accommodating and he wants give to you a lovely holiday. We’ve enjoyed breakfast at Francoise. If you want to have dinner on the beach, we’d recommend Dimitri’s in Almyrida, good greek food with a beautiful sunset. We’ve also walked the Samaria Gorge, which is a tough walk but definitely worth it! However, you don’t have to leave Villa Varvara to have a good time, we’ve enjoyed many lovely days at the pool! It is not often we as a family go back to the same place but we really have fallen in love with this part of Crete and are looking forward to our next visit. We all loved it!

Fantastic villa in a great location - ideal for larger families
We stayed in this villa 5 years ago under it's previous owners and it was tired. Now, re-painted and with appropriate furniture that fits it has a new lease of life. From the moment you book you are always in control knowing where to find the keys etc, who to contact if you have any issues and where things are. Anne and Richard from the property management company are excellent and will be at the property in minutes if needed. Would thoroughly recommend this villa as it is a short walk (less than 5 mins) on level ground to teh beach and teh Tavernas.
