Markos Villa is built on the top of a hill which enables you to enjoy a magnificent sea and mountain view, even from the garden. Almirida, a fishing village with a shallow and sandy beach, is only 4,5 km away. Drapanos is an unspoilt, peaceful and picturesque village and an ideal starting point for excursions to Apokoronas area, the most beautiful part of the prefecture of Chania.

The villa is surrounded by plain fields, giving a sense of seclusion and peace. The yard is full of exotic plants and colourful flowers. In the terrace, you will find a place suitable for BBQ. There is a private pool from which you have a great view over the village, the surrounding mountains and Souda Bay. The pool is suitable for children as it has an integral children's area. Next to the pool there are sun loungers and an outdoor dining set.

The house has two floors and an attic. At the ground floor you will find the sunlit living room, the full-equipped kitchen and a wc. A French door opens to a covered veranda with a large table and chairs for lovely midday meals. On the first floor, there are one twin and one double bedroom, both with private balconies with view to the village of Drapanos. On the same floor there are a bathroom and a big veranda ideal for lovely dinners, overlooking the mountains and Souda Bay. On the second floor, the attic, there are a twin bedroom and a private cosy living room. There is also another veranda with breathtaking sunset view.

Amazing panoramic sea view

The villa is ideal for family but also for romantic vacations. The terrace by the pool is suitable for BBQs, admiring the view of Souda Bay, which takes your breath, especially at sunset.

Wonderful holidays

Es war ein wunderbarer Urlaub in dieser Villa! Wir vier - meine Frau, unsere Kinder (2 Jahre und ein Baby) und ich - haben uns vom ersten Moment an sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Im Mai 2015 verbrachten wir hier sehr entspannte Tage. Das Haus bietet alles, was man für einen Urlaub benötigt. Die technische Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Das Badezimmer ist praktisch und schön eingerichtet, ebenso wie die Küche, von der aus man immer einen Blick auf den Pool hat. Das ist gerade mit Kindern ein enormer Pluspunkte und erlaubt Ruhe beim Kochen. Die Schlafzimmer sind mit jeder Menge Stauraum ausgestattet und liegen in den oberen beiden Stockwerken. Wir haben alle vier exzellent geschlafen, mehr muss man nicht sagen.

Kommen wir zum Außenbereich: Der ist nahezu perfekt aufgeteilt. Es gibt neben dem großen Pool mit Kinderbereich Sonnenliegen samt Sonnenschirmen und einen Grill, den wir regelmäßig benutzt haben. Zudem einen kleinen Garten mit vielen Blumen, der topp gepflegt wird. Das Highlight sind die beiden Terrassen im ersten und zweiten Stock: Meine Frau und ich haben hier jeden Abend gesessen und den Sonnenuntergang über der Souda-Bucht genossen. Unbeschreiblich schön! Wenn man nach links blickt, sieht man auf die schneebedeckten Weißen Berge. Großartig!

Sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit ist Mikos, der Hausbesitzer. Er kommt regelmäßig vorbei und reinigt den Pool. Dabei ist er immer freundlich, aber keinesfalls aufdringlich. Er spricht sehr gut englich. Wenn man fragt, kann man ihn bei einem Spaziergang mit seinem Hund Max begleiten. Mikos erzählt interessantes über sein Heimatdorf und gibt Tipp.

Zum Ort Drapanos: Er bietet Ruhe und Entspannung pur. Beinahe täglich hatten wir am späten Nachmittag Besuch - eine Ziegenherde machte auf einer Ruine direkt neben der Villa Rast. Im Ort gibt es zwei Tavernen. "Leonidas" können wir sehr empfehlen. Herzlich, gastfreundlich, lecker und preiswert. Für Familien: Nebenan ist ein kleiner Spielplatz. Unterm Strich: Wir kommen wieder!!!!!

Quiet rural retreat in Crete

Our stay at this property in October was a delight. The views are stunning and the location was just what we were looking for - quiet and away from any commercial resorts. The Villa is excellent and the service from Chania Rentals was helpful without being overbearing. The only reason we have not given an Excellent rating is the pool is slightly on the small side and very cold - probably a blessing in August but not in October! We really enjoyed our stay in this peaceful part of the island and would recommend eating at some of the local restaurants in nearby Plaka.

Fabulous two weeks at Markos. 40deg heat throughout and the peace and quiet of Drapanos made it the perfect fly and flop family holiday.

The villa is set on the hill side overlooking Souda bay and is only 4km from the beaches at Almyrida

Drapanos has a little village shop and several tavernas - beware the local raki!

Will return if dates allow.

Fantastic stay at Villa Markos

In september 2014 we've had a fantastic stay at Villa Markos. Very quiet and small village, breathtaking view on Chania and the sea from the terrace and (small) swimming pool, clean and modern villa.

Markos Villa

We were a family of two adults and three children, 10, 13,15 and enjoyed staying in Markos Villa very much. The villa was comfortable and clean with plenty of different terraces to eat or sit depending on the sun, and the views of Suda Bay were stunning. On some mornings the adults got up early to watch the sunrise. The garden although small was rather lovely; and we all enjoyed the pool. The local taverna was excellent - very friendly and relaxed and we ate there several times. The only downside to the villa with teenagers is that it is too far from Chania or Rethymno to just go in for a couple of hours. In general, however, a very good place to stay.

Vacances mark os villa

Très bonnes vacances à la markos villa. Maison très propre, piscine agréable et surtout des propriétaire discrets et charmants. A notre arrivée, un énorme plat de moussaka nous attendais ainsi que des feuilles de vignes farcies et du pain. Bref à recommander.

Perfect holidays

We´ve had the best holidays we could imagine. Villa was spacious, very well equipped, wíth an amazing sea view. The owner´s wife prepared a moussaka for us, which was very nice start of our vacation. We have also visited the local taverna which was also perfect with great atmnosphere. Everything was just perfect!

Good base for exploring Chania region!

We stayed in Markos Villa for a week with our 13-years old daughter and our 78-years old mum. The villa was really spacious, finished to a good standard and suitable for our needs.The pool is stunning, nice size. We were dining out most of evenings in Almirida, but when we did eat at the villa, we enjoyed the terrace on the first floor as this gives you a lovely view of the Souda Bay. We watched the stars from the top of the house - the terrace is 360 degrees, so you can see the mountain tops as well as the sea. On the day of the arrival we were greeted with warm moussaka in the oven and a tray of small parcels filled with dill and feta cheese! It was simply delicious . What a lovely touch!

Markos Villa

This villa has the most extraordinary views I've ever experienced. Ever, anywhere. I totally fell in love with the views and the area. It is quite high up a hill/small mountain and the location is mesmerising. The house has a room at the top which is very, very cosy, with wooden floors, a slanted wooden ceiling, a real delight! It also has 3 outside terraces, the top one allowing a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. It is also quiet and peaceful, despite there being other properties in the vecinity. All this makes up for a pretty un-cosy living area, a poorly kitted kitchen (but then we always go out for dinner when on holidays) and the staircase steps being higher than usual. Not for somebody with a disability at all! The owner's wife kindly expected us with a delicious moussaka in the fridge and some other delights which were yummie! Would I go back? Definitely!

Markos Villa

My wife and I had a wonderfull time at the Markos Villa. Unlike other villa's we have rented in the past it was a pleasant surprise to find simple things like coffee/sugar etc already at the villa and really appreciated the home cooked moussaka/cheese and spinach parcels!! We would certainly recommend staying at the villa to anyone as it is in a lovely out of the way place with great views, but not too far away from places such as Kalives or Georgioupolis.

Markos villa

We had a wonderful holiday at Markos villa, Drapanos. The villa was very clean and tidy on our arrival and we had a lovely meal waiting for us on our arrival, after a long day, it was much appreciated. The pool was cleaned regularly and the views from the villa were breathtaking. We would recommend a trip to the inland Lake. A wonderful opportunity to swim in clear, warm water and a chance to do some kyaking which we had never done before - a great experience! There were three tavernas within walking distance, we tried two and both were very nice. A shop also within walking distance which was convenient. We would recommend a car to see more of the island. Almirida was lovely, again for swimming in the clear, safe water. Thank you once again.

Summer 2010 at markos Villa

Markos Villa is one of the best villas we have stayed in. It was spacious, very well equipped and the views are fantastic. Although it was very private, the local village is a two minute walk, and has two tavernas and a mini market. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Almirida is a ten minute drive and has a great beach lined with cafes and tavernas. You will need a car. I thoroughly recommend this villa!
