Villa K is a 3 bed / 2 bath villa peacefully located in a pretty garden plot amidst the beautiful Cretan countryside in the traditional village of Neo Chorio which boasts a couple of tavernas and a shop. The large pool is very privately situated behind the villa with lush planting to ensure you are not overlooked. The larger village of Armeni with more amenities is nearby (2 kms) and the bustling village and seaside resort of Kalives where you will find sandy beaches and a number of good tavernas is an easy 5kms drive.
NB: the villa is being partly refurbished for the 2021 season. The owners have told us this work includes a new kitchen and bathrooms. Updated pictures will be published in due course. Update: July 2021 - we have included most of the changes in the description below.
You enter into the open plan living area with a brand new kitchen for the 2021 season. A hallway at the rear of the living area leads you to the stairs, the reburbished modern family shower room and one of the double bedrooms.
The spacious living area is comfortably furnished with 2 sofas (one of which converts to become a sofa bed), a large central coffee table, side tables and a wall mounted TV screen. For your further entertainment, some books and games are provided. With a set of patio doors opening up to a raised terraced outside dining area and a covered sitting to provide shade, this open plan layout is full of light.
The L shaped modern fitted kitchen with breakfast bar looks out onto the garden. Well equipped (see amenities list) with plenty of storage and worktop space, you will undoubtedly want to prepare home made snacks and meals to enjoy in the numerous, attractive dining areas outside.
One of the 2 double bedrooms is on this floor, privately positioned at the end of the hallway behind the lounge. Patio doors open to a small furnished terrace.
The family shower room is adjacent to this bedroom.
NB: to the left of the stairs there is another locked room which the owners use as storage.
The other bedrooms, one double and one twin and another recently reburbished shower room are on this floor. The double room has patio doors leading to a small private balcony. The wow factor on this floor is the massive terrace, accessed at the top of the stairs separately from both bedrooms, which looks out across the valley stretched out below and to the sea in the distance. Furnished with sturdy but comfortable furniture underneath a pergola to provide shade, this is a magnificent spot for relaxation and early evening drinks before dinner. In addition to this covered section there is also an extensive open area for soaking up the sun. A handy external staircase leads from this balcony to the raised outside dining area which gives an alternative access to the kitchen and living area.
Without doubt, the outside areas and pool are the most impressive features at this villa. The garden extends to two sides of the villa and the lush planting provides a very high degree of privacy. The south westerly positioned pool and its surrounding terraces, with a pergola sheltered dining area where you will find the Weber charcoal BBQ, are also very privately situated at the rear of the villa. The pool area is gated for added safety. There is another large raised dining terrace off the living area. Chairs and tables are dotted around the various terraces giving you the option to enjoy a tranquil garden setting for al fresco dining or your morning coffee. The large tables on the raised ground floor dining terrace and by the pool will easily seat up to 8.
The sparkling pool is surrounded by sun bathing terraces; loungers and parasols are provided and more shade, if required, is available under the pergola covered dining patio at one end overlooking the pool.
At the edge of the raised dining area there is a steepish drop and for this reason the owners do not accept bookings from families with children aged under 7.
The internet will be supplied for the 2021 season. Details to follow shortly.

Low Occupancy Discounts
A low occupancy discount for single couples (use of 1 bedroom), of 15%, is available at this villa except for July and August dates.
Not allowed on late availability or special offer prices.
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.
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 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.
Villa K is new to Crete Escapes for the 2021 season. We will post more reviews once received in due course but in the meantime, any previous reviews shown below have been provided courtesy of the villa owners.
All I can say is that this villa is superb. Layout, equipment and cleanliness are all fantastic. The pool is great and the roof terrace quite spectacular both in the day and in the evening. We hired a car as like to explore when on holiday. Loads of lovely beaches and restaurants just a short drive away and some a little further if you don't mind the extra time in the car. Supermarket just a short drive too. Loads to see and do in this area of Crete so you will be guaranteed to have a great, varied holiday. Probably the best villa we have stayed in over the years so thank you. Would definitely stay in this villa again - July 2019
Just got back from a fab holiday in Crete. Have got to say that Villa K is one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. The bedrooms are all a good size with air-con and good storage with an amazing amount of coat hangers, there were also mozzie plugs for each bedroom. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need and the lounge was a good size with two comfy sofas. The thing which really makes Villa K special is the outdoor space, there are 4 different seating areas to choose from. We especially liked the large upstairs terrace which was lit beautifully at night with solar powered lights. The pool was also fantastic, the water was a lovely temperature at the end of July and the pool area at that time of the year is in full sun from sunrise until about 7pm (there is also a shaded terrace at the end of the pool area if you need to escape the sun for a while). We were also very impressed that half way through our stay our beds and towels were changed (the pool was also cleaned on the day that we arrived and then halfway through our stay). Neo Chorio itself was a lovely little village as was Armeni just up the road. We also enjoyed the beach at Kalives (which had some great restaurants on the sea front), beautiful clear water - make sure you take a snorkel and mask. All in all, we had a fab stay thanks in a large part to our great base for the week - July 2019
