General Description

Villa Eftihia is a simply furnished, charming Greek house, in a peaceful location in the village of Kokkino Chorio and within easy walking distance of the village shop and a few tavernas. From the main terrace at the front of the house, you can sit by the pool and enjoy splendid views across Souda Bay to the Akrotiri peninsula, this is also a great spot to sit and watch the sun go down. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms, one of which is en-suite, this house offers great value for money. At the back of the house there is a lovingly tended, well shaded, garden.

Ground Floor

On entering the house, you know you can only be on holiday in Greece as the colour scheme throughout is so typically Greek. The spacious and airy open plan living area with its high vaulted, wooden, ceiling is furnished in the traditional way. Lounge seating is arranged in a sociable u shape around a coffee table adjacent to which is the dining table and 6 dining chairs. At the far end of this open plan area is the well equipped L shaped kitchen (see the features tab for details of the equipment) with plenty of worktop areas making it easy to self cater.

The kitchen window looks out over the front terrace to the lovely views beyond.

There are french style doors on two sides of the ground floor living area. To the front, the doors open out on to a paved terrace, private pool and gorgeous sea views. On the other side, to the rear of the house, the doors open out on to another paved terrace and a delightful secluded garden.

You will also find 2 of the 3 bedrooms (one of the doubles and a twin) and the main family bathroom on this floor. NB, the bathroom was refurbished in 2018. 

Both of the bedrooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans for those guests who prefer natural cooling to air conditioning, plenty of storage space and a balcony or terrace accessed through french style doors doors.

A small utility cupboard next to the bathroom houses the washing machine.

An extensive TV and music choice with British, French and Russian programmes to name but a few, is delivered via the internet connection.

First Floor

Marble stairs lead up to the first floor master double bedroom with en-suite shower room. NB, the shower room was refurbished in 2018. This bedroom is spacious and airy with air-conditioning and a ceiling fan, wardrobe storage and french doors leading to a balcony looking out to the front of the property and once again those glorious views. 

External Areas

Outside, the outlook from the villa is superb with stunning views across Souda Bay to the Akrotiri peninsula. There is a tiled pool with a decked surround to the front of the villa with lots of space for sun loungers. Shade is provided under the covered terrace area or in the lovely garden at the rear of the villa. The mobile, charcoal BBQ can be found on the front terrace, handily placed for the kitchen.

To the rear of the villa is a delightful shady garden and small olive grove; we are sure this will be a favourite retreat for al fresco dining or simply relaxing during the hottest parts of the day.

The plot is gated but is not fully enclosed so the house may not be suitable for families with very young children.

Internet Access

Broadband internet with no download or upload limts is delivered via a fixed telephone line. The service also provides a wealth of television and radio channels from the UK, France and Russia.

Not allowed on late availability or special offer prices.

Loyalty Discounts

If you are a returning client and this is your 3rd (or more) consecutive booking with Crete Escapes or your 2nd separate booking in one season, you will qualify for our loyalty discount. Please quote voucher code LOYALTY05 when asked to do so during the online booking process or let us know when you contact us. Your reduction of 5% will then be deducted from the total price.

Short breaks are normally only available for a minimum of 5 nights and will be charged at the 7 nightly rate unless otherwise advertised.  However, if the number of available days between existing bookings is less than 7 nights we may be able to accept bookings at a reduced rate subject to the owners agreement.

Short breaks are allowed within 3 days of arrival.



Booking Information

Change-over days are totally flexible but are subject to existing bookings taken either side. If a booking means that the owner would be left with too many "void" days we might not be able to accept it. If this is the case we will contact you without delay to discuss alternatives.

Payment can be made by bank transfer (sterling or euro) or by debit or credit card.

Our travel information provides details of how to get to Crete including flights to both Chania and Heraklion airports.

If you want to book, please use the availability chart above to check your dates, you can then either book on-line, email enquiries@crete-escapes.com or call us on 0330 111 0061.

Please note: although the calendars show live availability and you can book on-line, please note that your booking is not confirmed until we have issued a confirmation of booking. You may prefer not to book your flights until we have confirmed the booking.

Low occupancy discounts - unfortunately the online booking system automatically calculates the single couple or small party discount based on the number of people entered onto the booking form and the start day of your rental. There are 2 problems with this:-

a) If you are 2 people but not a single couple, or 3 or 4 people but not 2 + 1 or 2 + 2, the system will have automatically calculated a discount when it is not due. Please make use of the "additional notes" box on the booking form to tell us and we will adjust the price accordingly before we confirm your booking.

b) If your rental overlaps from a discounted period to a non-discounted one (or vice versa), the discount calculated will be wrong. In these cases we have to make the adjustment manually. You can still book on-line but we will need to change the price on receipt of your booking request. If the price increases we will contact you to confirm the new price before we confirm your booking and take your deposit.

Please don't let either of these issues put you off making a booking. The discounts are genuine and our villa owners welcome couples and smaller parties out of high season. We just can't fine tune the booking system to account for these 2 circumstances - sorry.
