The villa has an excellent location within a small, private gated community close to the village of Kaliviani, where a range of amenities can be found. The nearest beach can be found just a few-minutes away at Gramvoussa Bay, although we recommend venturing a little further and heading to either Falassarna or Balos Lagoon, both of these beautiful beaches are around twenty-minutes away by car. The closest resort, Kissamos, is around ten-minutes away and boasts a wider selection of amenities. The airport, Chania International, is conveniently located around an hour away.

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 Teens

The villas are great for families. There are highchairs and cots available for babies and toddlers. The outside area is good for evening barbecues.

Nearby Gramvoussa Beach is sandy and the rugged coastline provides great snorkelling. A boat to the little island with a venetian fortress on will provide interest for toddlers and older children alike. Other days out can include the lagoon at Balos, the Monastery at Elafonissi and for older kids the Samana gorge.

  • And relax...

    Posted by MC on 08/10/2017

    We spent a week here in Villa Gaia. It was a beautiful villa with a lovely pool and terrace area. Villa was clean and spacious and the cooking facilities are well thought through and have everything you need. We barbecued twice and made lunch at the villa most days. The villas are cleverly landscaped so you never feel overlooked and the views over the bay are beautiful. Beautiful stars at night and very quiet. The villas are cleaned thoroughly daily and you have a regular supply of clean towels and fresh sheets.

    We were well looked after by Eleni who was able to suggest good places to eat, a local taxi driver and also arranged a wonderful afternoon of horse riding. She's a mine of information and all her suggestions were good.

    It's a sleepy place, perfect for relaxing. We were definitely glad we hired a car, as most things are a (short) drive away. Lots of beautiful beaches and we recommend the sunset at Orange Blue cafe above Falasarna beach. We'd certainly consider a return trip to Villa Gaia

  • Family two week holiday

    Posted by MH on 20/08/2017

    We had the most amazing 2 week stay in Villa Gaia. The Villa was stunning, beautifully located and very private. Immaculate pool and villa and very well equipped with every kitchen gadget you could wish for and frequent linen and towel changes.
    The Villa hostess Eleni was great, extremely helpful with booking restaurants and excursions and no request was too much trouble! We met Vassillis the owner who was a lovely guy, very knowledgeable about everything and anything in Crete from the sea conditions to fishing, or the best restaurants in Chania!!
    We haven't had such a relaxing Villa holiday in a long time. The cleaners come daily and sweep and tidy and empty dishwashers, all basics are provided which is great! The local supermarkets are excellent and very cheap.
    There are so many lovely restaurants locally and it is so cheap relative to other holiday destinations that you don't even need to stay in and cook unless you want to! It's like a hotel but a villa!
    Highly recommend it. We have booked already for next year!
