Villa Helios is situated in the beautiful north-west coast of Crete, nearby to the town of Kissamos. Kissamos itself is a small port town, with a pretty harbour and bustling restaurants dotted along the seafront. Although quiet, the town offers everything you could need for your stay, with shops, supermarkets, cafeteria and of course traditional tavernas!

For a day out at the beach, the closest to you is the stunning Falasarna beach, which is only a 15-minutes’ drive away, boasting golden sandy shores and turquoise waters, this has been voted one of the top-5 beaches in Greece to visit.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Teens

Villa Helios is a fantastic escape for families, the downstairs bedroom can be made up as a twin or a double, giving you flexibility during your stay and suiting siblings that enjoy sharing a room! In the lounge, when the kids are tired, they can sink down into the comfy cushions and watch a movie! This sofa can also be converted into a sofa bed, ideal for an additional child. The pergola on the terrace leaves some of the seating in the shade, ideal for younger kids. Please be aware that there is no fence around the pool, so little children will need to be supervised as they adventure around the terrace!

The beaches in Crete draw in families with young kids as the waters tend to be shallow and warm, and the shores sandy, making it safe and fun for kids to splash and play, whilst adults can keep an easy eye on them from the comfort of a deck chair! Lots of the beaches are perfect for snorkelling, discovering the rocks and life beneath the water, you can normally buy snorkels at the local shops or bring your own from home.

If you are looking for a day out as a family, with children of all ages, then we would recommend a boat trip to the uninhabited pirate island of Gramvouse. Along the trip, there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, snorkelling and exploring the ruins of a Venetian Fortress! The beach on the island is safe for young kids. On the way back, they can enjoy the magical adventure of visiting Balos Bay, filled with warm shallow water and beautiful pink sand! Older children may also enjoy walking the famous Samaria Gorge, which at 17km is the longest in Europe.

When you are looking for places to eat, there are plenty of family-friendly restaurants, with most eateries happily accepting young children – several will even offer you a kid’s menu. Popular traditional dishes with kids tend to be moussaka or souvlaki, all served with chips of course!

  • Just wonderful

    Posted by LH on 29/08/2016

    We had a lovely stay in Villa Helios for 3 nights in August. We wished we had booked for longer as we didn't have time to do all the things we would have liked to do.

    The views are amazing and it was lovely sitting by the pool looking out at the sea.

    The Villas are well maintained, modern and clean. Eleni who met us on arrival as really helpful and had a lot of information on the area.
