Villa Patrikia is a beautifully presented light, airy, 2 bed/ 2 bath villa, complete with a small private pool, just a short stroll from the charming village of Plaka where you will find tavernas, a bar and a couple of grocery shops. The family friendly, sandy beach resort of Almyrida is approximately 15 minutes walk away. Immaculately decorated and furnished throughout this villa will be a perfect choice for guests looking for a comfortable base close to amenities and the beach.
The ground floor is open plan and consists of a modern L shaped fitted kitchen with every appliance including a dishwasher (see the amenities "tab" for a full list). The modern theme flows through to the dining area with its large, extendable table to seat up to 6 and complementary sideboard which houses a vast mirror above to reflect the light. Continuing with the modern trend, the lounge has a corner sofa that can convert to become a sofa bed, a brightly coloured tub style chair, occasional tables, a book case, ornaments and lamps. For your entertainment, as well as a small selection of books, there is a wall mounted Smart TV and an Ipod docking system.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a fully tiled, recently refurbished, shower room with a sizeable shower tray and a full length glass screen, modern wc and wash basin.
Both of the bright, attractive, bedrooms, one twin and one double, are on this floor. The bedrooms are compact but are very well planned to provide guests with wardrobe and drawer storage space. There is a mirror above a dressing table in the double room and a full length mirror in the twin room. French doors open out from the double room to a balcony with sea views, furnished with 2 rattan armchairs and a rattan coffee table.
The larger of the two shower rooms is on this floor. This has also been refurbished recently to include a large shower tray and a full length glass screen. There is a modern wc, a wash basin with a double door vanity unit and a large mirror above the basin.
The villa is situated in a quiet cul de sac, near to the village centre with other villas and houses in reasonably close proximity, as can be seen from the photographs. The main downstairs terrace is accessed via 2 sets of french doors opening up from the kitchen and the lounge. This terrace is well screened and very private for a village house. Furnished with a large modern table and 6 dining chairs there are also 2 rattan sofas, one to seat 3 and the other to seat 2 and a rattan coffee table.
Initially built as a village house, the pool was added at a later date in the most private part of the plot. Measuring 6m x 3m, the pool is accessed by roman steps and is ideal for taking a dip and cooling off. The sun terraces around the pool will accommodate several sun beds and sun umbrellas.
External lighting around the villa, pool and built in BBQ makes this an ideal setting for al fresco dining after dusk.
NB: whilst the owner has incorporated clever screening to provide privacy where possible, some of the outside areas can be seen from other villas.

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.
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.

Lovely 6 days in a well maintained and well decorated villa. It has been amazing to be back in Plaka again after an 'enforced' 2 year break. We would 100% stay here again - October 2021.
Villa Patrikia is new to Crete Escapes for the 2021 season. More reviews will be posted when received in due course.
