Well, my family and I have just returned from our sixth visit to Villa Kalithea. Maybe this will tell you what we think of it! Everything from the swimming pool, the gorgeous views, the terraces, the tranquility, the garden, the newly updated interiors ( was pretty lovely even before the update!) are absolutely perfect. The welcome that we always receive from Dimitris and Mrs Stella always makes us feel a bit like we are coming home! Fantastic non-touristy tavernas nearby are a bonus, and we love the fact that we are away from the hordes but can reach beautiful beaches within 15 minutes. Needless to say we will be returning as soon as is possible!
Our family of four (children aged 11 and 14) have recently returned from a terrific two week stay at the Villa Kalithea. The villa itself is extremely comfortable and stylish, offering stunning vistas and a wonderfully tranquil environment. It is well also positioned - close to several dining options, villages, beaches and other activities. Dimitris was a wonderfully accommodating host and a real pleasure to deal with. We can highly recommend this villa and hope to return soon.
We had a wonderful time in Kalithea villa... Very comfortable villa, very nice accomodation, very warm welcome by Dimitris and his nephews. The landscape around the garden is wonderful ; the swimming-pool is extremely clean ! In short, the perfect villa :-))) When we get back to Crete, we know the address to go ! Note : We also recommend the small restaurant in Agio Pandes, either in restaurant or for take away
We are a family with 3 small children and have now spent the second summer vacation in a row in Crete. We absolutely love the island with its beaches, mountains, villages and cities. Villa Kalithea has been the perfect place for us. The house and the property are gorgeous and the scenery is spectacular. We felt very much at home due to the good care that Dimitris and his mother took of us. The property is safe also for small children which was a great advantage for us as we could let the children run around freely while only keeping an eye on the pool. We want to come back! Maybe already next year..
Truly fantastic villa. Fabulous location where you can truly escape from the stresses and strains of life. It is completely private and has amazing views of the white mountains from the beautiful grounds. The interior is furnished to a very high standard, with everything that you could possibly need. The exterior has a number of areas to enjoy the wonderful poolside location. You will need a car to access the villa, but that's a small price to pay to truly get away from it all in Villa Kalithea's tranquility. Enjoy.
Beautiful villa in and out. We loved it so much. Your privacy is fully protected and the view!!! It was just to die for.
We thoroughly enjoyed being in the swimming pool looking to the mountain and nearby village.
Pemonia where the villa is located is a very small and cozy village. It was perfect location for us to explore chania area. To the chania old town center, it takes about 25minutes by car but if you dont feel like going to the city for dining, there are many other options in nearby towns. We went to vamos for lunch which is only 7km away from the villa and algymida for dinner which is 12km away. Both taverna were great and we could not have known these places unless Dimitris information folder was not found in the villa.
He prepare great information book for guests and you can find all kind information not only about taverna recommedation but where to visit or what to do in emergency and etc.
We loved every bit of the villa. Thank you.
It is a villa that provides total privacy.
Beatiful scenery,from the balcony and the pool.
Experience of the unique traditional cretan atmosphere.
Close to the beach (5 minutes drive).
Taverns, mini markets in close distance if not want to drive far.
The owner is very helpful and the landlady cooks excellent cretan delicacies. Must taste her cusine if you want to try real traditional food. more
Best Villa in Crete!

Our family just spent the most incredible 10 days in the most
wonderful and majestic surroundings of Villa Kalithea! This Villa is
a real gem! Built to emphasize the natural beauty of its environment,
Villa Kalithea evokes peace and tranquility. Surrounded by majestic
mountains, and in complete privacy, the only sounds you will hear are
those of mountain goats, sheep, and birds. The Villa is very well
maintained and well thought-out. The owner goes above and beyond to
ensure that guests are not only comfortable but happy and at peace!
The inside of the Villa is as relaxing as the outside and is a perfect
refuge after a long day at the beach. The pool is an oasis in a
refreshing and calming garden. This Villa is a perfect place for
families with children to enjoy a beautiful holiday bonding under the
Grecian sun and stars
