Offering the ultimate in elegance and indulgence, Villa Folia is a one-of-a-kind, stunning holiday home overlooking the dazzling lights of Chania city. If you have not visited before, Chania is a truly magical city, with winding lanes, charming architecture, and a beautiful harbor, where you can watch breath-taking sunsets in the evening. Showcasing the best of Crete, its landscape, natural beauty, service and atmosphere, Villa Folia will have you wanting to return every year if you can! 

The villa has been carefully designed, with an attention to detail that will meet the highest expectations for your holiday. The décor combines modern luxury with the exclusive ambience of a private home, so you can plan spectacular celebrations, followed by cosy nights in. Accommodating up to ten guests, the villa is split so one large group can share its fantastic living spaces, or two families can balance out time together and privacy apart. 

On the ground floor the front door opens immediately into a bright, open plan living space. There is an intimate atmosphere, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining table and cosy lounge. The tiled flooring extends the whole way through the room and onto the terrace, creating a seamless sense between the interior and exterior living spaces. Small details make this open room feel like a home, the kind of place you can curl up, play games, and relax enjoying time away from day-to-day life. There are four spacious double bedrooms on this floor, all with large glass sliding doors that open to a sequence of sunny outdoor spaces. 

Stepping upstairs, you will find yourself in Villa Folia’s showstopping, open plan entertaining area. This vast space is flooded with light, with high ceilings, skylights, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors on either side. The contemporary kitchen will thrill any budding chefs, perfect for preparing elegant evening meals or canapes for a special occasion! There is a large dining table at the centre of the room, with feature pendant lighting and space for fourteen to dine together. To the other side an oversized sofa faces a heart-warming wood-burner. This floor is completed by three bedrooms, a master suite with its own private balcony and two double bedrooms with doors leading out to a shared balcony. 

Of course, with such spectacular vistas, you will want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. You can spend hours relaxing by the private heated pool or reclining by the poolside on a lounger looking out over the city of Chania. There are various seating area spread around the grounds, so you can chase the sun and soak up every minute of your holiday.

Villa Folia is all about location, situated above the twinkling lights of Chania city, with vistas that stretch across the city and to the sea beyond. A luxury hideout, this spacious holiday home offers the perfect balance of peace and privacy with city life including bustling restaurants and shops all just a stone throws away.  

The municipality town where the villa is located is called Perivolia of Chania, 6.1km south of the city, in the northern foothills of the White Mountains. The journey into Chania is only a 5–10-minute drive, so you can come and go as you please, making the most of Chania’s incredible culinary scene and soaking in the atmosphere of this vibrant city. Chania is famed for its charming Venetian Harbour and old port, alongside its narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants. We highly recommend heading into the city early, taking a stroll around the narrow lanes and popping your head into a few of the beautiful boutiques, before heading down to the harbor for sunset. Whether you set yourself up in a rooftop restaurant, a seafront bar or simply stroll down the harbor, the colors that ignite the evening sky will take your breath away, only amplified by the gorgeous city as a backdrop.

When it comes to food, there is plenty to be excited about. Chania has options to suit every occasion, from small local tavernas serving classics like Moussaka and Lamb chops, to high-end restaurants with tasting menus and five-star cuisine. We strongly believe if you do not try both, you will be missing out! For a special occasion, PALLAS restaurant is a favourite among guests, the rooftop terrace is one of the best spots in the city for sunset and the food is just as good as the view, so we recommend booking ahead. 

Crete is admired for its beaches, ancient sites and time trodden villages. There are gorges to be walked and mountains to be climbed, with endless sandy and pebble shores to rest at each day. In the summer months, the temperatures can soar across the island, so take care as you explore.  

An ancient olive tree of great historical and cultural value gave the name to this beautiful region, with the story saying that it was once the only tree in the area. Today it stands out because of its size. The trunk at the base has a perimeter of thirteen meters and it is divided into five other trunks that form a huge nest. With branches reaching endlessly into the atmosphere you can take a rest under the canopy, soaking in the pure tranquility of this space. The surrounding area has been shaped to protect the tree. It is a 30-minute drive from the villa to this mystical spot, and well worth the journey.

How to reach Chania

There are two ways to reach Chania: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane:
Chania Airport (CHQ) is only a 20 minutes ride away from central Chania. During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect Chania city and most of the villas. You can also hire a car from one of the many rental companies at the airport, or alternatively get a taxi to bring you right to your doorstep.

By ferry:
If you choose to do an island-hopping trip and use the ferry as a method of transportation, then the closest port is in Souda, only 8km from the centre of Chania. Only ferries from Piraeus in Athens or Heraklion in Crete. Heraklion port has a wider choice: you can also take a ferry from other Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos or Paros, but you will have to take a longer bus ride to reach your villa. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

From the moment you pull up, kids will be in absolute heaven at Villa Folia! From the grounds to the house and its spacious living areas, every corner you turn there is a new delight for families, and we are sure it will only take seconds for children to jump into the heated swimming pool when you arrive! 

The décor throughout the villa combines modern luxury with the exclusive ambience of a private home, so even in the vast entertaining spaces there is a sense of homeliness that makes it easy for families to settle in. Kids can bundle onto the huge sofas, watching TV and playing games whilst adults gather around the kitchen island and social dining table. The open plan living spaces open out onto the outdoor terraces, with sliding glass doors that allow kids to rush between indoor and outdoor. Please be aware there are steps outside to access the pool, so the smallest children will need supervision as they explore the grounds. 

Outside, Villa Folia offers even more. There is table tennis and games, and you could even set up a volleyball match in the pool, creating family championships with teams in the water and spectators gathered around on loungers cheering them on! The fun really is endless and that is before you even leave the villa.

Chania itself is a brilliant base for family holidays, with endless safe, shallow beaches where kids can swim safely, and adults can relax on sun loungers on the beach. Many of the beaches offer loungers and shady umbrellas and at almost every shore the water is crystal clear, making for brilliant snorkeling!

Limnoupolis is a water park, only a few-minutes’ drive from Villa Folia’s front door. The selection of water slides is impressive, with two freefall rides, a black hole, a triple twist, a crazy river, a rainbow multi-slide and two giant slides! There is also a separate kid’s pool with colorful waterslides and a lazy river which is 206 meters long! Guaranteed entertainment for the whole family, the water park is a brilliant option for all ages.

    Huge recommendations! Stunning view and owner George was very helpfull. VERY VERY nice place and best wedding celebration for us in this Villa.

  • Wonderful House

    on 19/06/2022

    I cannot begin to say how wonderful this house and accommodating the management is. First of all, the view! If you think the pictures are amazing, it is nothing compared to real life. The spectacular sunrises and sunsets are amazing. The house is beyond anything we have ever experienced. It was our own resort! George, the property manager, had the refrigerator and pantry stocked with essentials that easily kept our crew of 12 satisfied. Although it was supposed to be “for the first day” there was enough treats, water, wine, fresh fruit and snacks to last us for a few days. George was amazing, easily accessible by text at any time we had questions. The house is centrally located to nearby beaches and grocery stores. Our stay at Vilal Folia was definitely the highlight of our two week vacation in Greece. We didn’t want to leave! I highly recommend staying at Vilal Folia
