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 just under an hour away.

How to reach Crete island

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

By plane: Crete island has three airports: Chania (CHQ), Heraklion (HER) and Sitia (JSH). During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect the cities with the airport but if you want to feel safe that you will arrive on time you can prefer a taxi.

By ferry: If you want to live the whole experience try travelling by ferry. Crete island has three ports: in Chania (CHA), in Herakleion (HER) and in Sitia (JSH). You can take a ferry either from Piraeus port in Athens or from the Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos or Paros. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.

Reviews

  • 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!
