Villa Veghera is in a fabulous location with wonderful views over Kissamos bay. The villa is a high standard and has all the facilities to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Kissamos town has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere with lovely taverns and shops.

airbnb.com review:
We spent an amazing week at Villa Veghera and only wish we could have stayed longer. Popi and Michalis were charming, friendly and generous hosts, who welcomed us with a delicious home cooked meal and fresh produce from their garden! The Villa itself is just as advertised and very well appointed. We immediately felt at home and if it weren’t for the beckoning blue waters of the local beaches, we could have spent the entire week poolside. Everything was comfortable, clean and in good working order. We recommend Villa Veghera without reservation and look forward to returning one day. The local community of Kissamos is delightful and the people are very friendly. Michalis’ visitor’s guide proved indispensable and we highly recommend it for planning daily excursions. Thank you Popi and Michalis for a truly unforgettable experience!

Great place. Great people. A spacious villa within a 20 minute walk from the Kissamos sea and a 15 minute drive away from the Fallasarna beach. The communication with Michalis and his mom is quick, thourough and super friendly. We got welcomed with a big plate of Cretan food and that set the tone for a great stay at Villa Veghera. For a group of people that want to explore this side of Crete: this is the place to stay.

Idyllic stay
Very nice welcome with authentic Creten food prepared to us. The house has really all what you would need for a perfect stay. Location is optimal for covering west Crete amazing places and still be isolated from mass tourism. Fantastic view from the site on the sea and the mountains. We loved the great pool and staying in the garden. Comfort at highest level. One of the highlights of our Greek roundtrip journey.
Could not really enjoy probably Europe’ most beautiful nearby beaches because we mainly wanted to stay at the house and enjoy all the facilities:)

“חופשה נהדרת, מומלץ ביותר”
בילינו שבוע בוילה וגהרה, 10 נפשות כולל 3ילדים. הוילה נקיה מאוד ויפה, מאובזרת עם כל מה שצריך. חיכתה לנו קבלת פנים מקסימה בצורת מגש מלא ממולאים טריים וטעימים ביותר. הבריכה גדולה והחצר מרווחת עם מיטות שיזוף וצל. הנוף מדהים, בקיצור היה מושלם. הוילה במרחק דקות נסיעה ממרכז קיסמוס. מאוד ממליצה למשפחות.

Translation with google translate:
“Great vacation, highly recommended”
The house is very clean and beautiful, equipped with everything you need. A lovely reception was waiting for us, a pan filled with fresh, delicious dish. The pool is large and the courtyard is spacious with sun beds and shade. The scenery is amazing, it was perfect. The villa is a few minutes drive from the center of Kissamos. Highly recommend to families

We loved the friendly people, and the hospitality of the owners. The villa was prepared nicely for our 10 months old baby (high chair, baby bath and baby cot) at no additional charge. The location was perfect to visit Elafonisi, Balos and Falasarna Beaches (with a rental car).
At arrival (late in the evening) the owner waited for us to check us in with a delicious surprise, thank you.

Great villa. Spacious, good layout and amazing views + huge pool the children loved! Perched on the mountain side, lovely and quiet with locals nearby. Town unspoilt – no huge hotels to ruin the area. We will definitely go back to Villa Veghera. Lastly, Mike and his mum Popi were so incredibly helpful!

Airbnb review:
Villa Veguera is a beautiful house 1’5km away from Kissamos center. It has big rooms with ensuite bathrooms, all the spaces are clean and comfortable and the whole house has stunning views. The space outside, with the pool and the barbecue is perfect to relax after a day of tourism. Michalis and his mother were really kind and helpful, it was a pleasure to know them. We would definitely come back again.

Airbnb review:
Michalis, his mother and Villa Veghara are wonderful. They made our holiday perfect. From the guide we were sent by Michalis after we’d booked so we could plan things to do while in Crete and the wonderful meal cooked for our arrival to helping to plan a surprise birthday evening for one of the party complete with cake, dinner and bar reservations. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa is beautiful, well looked after with a fabulous pool, wonderful views and everything you could possibly need in a home away from home. Our holiday was fantastic, thank you so much!

Villa Veghera was excellent, loved the pool area and the whole house in quiet rural environment. Kitchen is fully equipped to any need and the Kissamos Villagessa restaurants are within short walking distance also when you prefer a ready delicious meal. Loved also the welcome lunch prepared by the hosts.

Airbnb review:
The house is great! Four bedrooms, each has a separate bathroom, fast speed wifi and the signal is good. In this trip the landlord gave us a lot of great help. But also he helped us contact the car transfer service and so on. The house is still more suitable for a car as no car you need to climb up about 20 minutes. The house has a sea view in each room, each balcony can see the sea, excellent location.(translated with Google Translate)
Original: 房子很大很棒!四间卧室每间都有独立卫浴,网速较快,wifi信号好。在这次旅行中房东给予我们很多很大的帮助。还帮我们联系了车子外卖旅游攻略等。这个房子还是比较适合有车的,没有车的小伙伴需要爬山上来大概20分钟的爬坡。房子是个海景房,各个阳台均能看到大海,地理位置极佳。

Schönes großes Ferienhaus für Familien Top!

Das 2015 erbaute Haus liegt oberhalb von Kissamos an der staubigen Straße mit tollen Blick aufs Meer und die kleine Stadt. Die Anlage ist schön und für griechische Verhältnisse gepflegt. Das heißt: Es ist alles für den täglichen Bedarf an selbstverpflegung vorhanden, es ist sauber ( 2 mal pro Woche wird gereinigt) und die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und bemüht. Ein paar Kleinigkeiten nerven allerdings, so ist keiner der WC Sitze halbwegs ordentlich befestigt daher rutscht man hin und her und einige Zimmertüren schließen nicht, das bedeutet sie stehen ständig auf. Aber wie gesagt Kleinigkeiten die für uns statt ein sehr gut nur gut in der Gesamtnote ergeben.

Our stay was more than outstanding in your good house. From the arriving until we depart, from the first minute we felt like that. Every wish was absolutely fulfilled. Many many thanks again for your hospitality as family members.
Tanja, Switzerland, September 2016, villaveghera.gr
 

The property is very well presented and the owners are very hospitable and kind, providing us with a home cooked traditional Cretan meal on arrival and making themselves available for anything we may have needed throughout the stay. In addition, basic provisions were left for us including tea, coffee, water, bread and fresh fruit and vegetables from the owners garden. The house is well stocked with plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment etc. Even cleaning products such as dishwasher tablets were provided Everything was very clean on arrival with an additional clean mid week.

The house is situated on a hillside about 10 minutes walk from the town of Kissamos, which has plenty of shops and tavernas/restaurants etc.

The owner left us a guide to help us with local attractions and places to eat which was really useful. We had some lovely meals in the local tavernas but our favourite place to eat was at the small fishermans harbor about 3 kilometers from the house.

One point to note is that if you would like to visit the beautiful beach at Balos, be prepared to a good long trek. The car park is usually full in tourist season which means you have to park way back on the roadside (very narrow in places) and then the walk to the beach (from the car park) is about 3 kilometers over very rocky, uneaven terrain – coming back up again is much worse than walking down. All in our party are fit and well but even we found it heavy going. If you have any mobility difficulties, my advice would be to take the ferry from Kissamos instead.

A lovely holiday and I would not hesitate in recommending this property.

Two-floor house, very well equipped, with garage, barbecue and a lovely infinity pool. Great views from the pool and terraces. A very warm welcome (a large baking pan in the oven full of stuffed vegetables). A practical kitchen, a huge fridge (filled with deserts), plates and glasses for a regiment makes life easier. With the dishwasher (consumables supplied) you have to worry about nothing. All bedrooms have shower/bath, are sound-proof with a very efficient air conditioning that make the whole stay very pleasant.(translated with Google Translate)

Review at VRBO.com/homeaway.co.uk:

Beautiful home and Great Owners!

We just returned from a one week vacation at Villa Veghera, and it could not have been more enjoyable. The owners made sure everything was taken care of. We arrived very late on our first day (1 AM), due to a delayed flight. However, the owners not only patiently waited for us, they also made sure the house was stocked with bottled water and provided a home cooked Greek dish, knowing that we would likely be hungry and exhausted from traveling all day, and that we wouldn’t be able to buy groceries until morning.

The house is very large and beautifully decorated. It has a big outdoor area with an infinity pool and grill/bar area and countless balconies. We were a group of 8 and it never felt crammed. It is situated on a hill, a few minutes from the main stretch of town, in a somewhat secluded area (i.e. very quiet and wonderful views of the bay). And although there is an abandoned new home construction next door, the house felt very safe. It is gated, has shutters you can close, the outdoor areas are well lit (and timed) and it has a security system with surveillance cameras.

The owners are very responsive and went to great lengths to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. House and pool cleaning is done once a week, with fresh linens and towels provided. They also left us another home cooked Greek side dish, which was a very pleasant surprise and was promptly incorporated into our dinner plans for that evening (one of our favorite things to do was to grill by the pool, after coming back from the beach – Falassarna, Balos, Elafonisi, all within driving distance).

All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this rental!

Review at check out form:
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! The whole experience was above expectations! The house is absolutely stunning and perfect for a family vacation of a life time. The photos don’t do justice. And the responsiveness and little details from the owner was very nice. I cannot wait to recommend the villa to my friends. Thank you so much!

We loved Villa Veghera. The house was even better in real life than the photos. The pool and the view from the balconies was my favourite part. The house was very clean inside. Great location for exploring West Crete by car. Michalis’s communication was fantastic, very hospitable. If I visit Crete, I will definitely pick his place again.

4 days in a fantastic villa!

The location is secluded from the center, quiet and great for getting to the most beautiful beaches. The villa is clean, spacious, equipped with everything, and with two enjoyable and useful terraces. We stayed there 8 people: 4 bedrooms with a bathroom each, ensuring privacy to everybody. Hospitality at its best: the lady welcomed us and offered us a fresh watermelon and other necessary goods already in the fridge; Two days later she prepared a local dish made of vegetables that we enjoyed with great pleasure; It was better than that eaten in the restaurant !!! The Michalis tips have been invaluable to the places to visit and taverns where to dine. He also got for us a private boat, at a reasonable price, to go to Balos and Gramvousa without using public ferries (fairy-tale day). (translated with Google Translate)

Villa Veghera was absolutely perfect, the pictures shown was exactly how it was presented upon arrival. Michalis ensured that we had all the adequate information about the local area and sight seeing opportunities ready and available before our trip; he was an amazing help when in need of any questions! If that was not all, his mother was absolutely amazing; waiting for us to arrive (from a very late and delayed flight) and providing us with the best hospitality to make sure our first night was comfortable. All in all, we absolutely enjoyed everything about this place; six girls looking for an escape from London – this was the perfect place for us. Set on top a hill overlooking the rest of Kissamos it provided us with relaxing evenings by the poolside with a view. I would definitely return; first Airbnb experience – and definitely one to remember! Thank you again!!!

From FeWo-direkt.de/Homeaway.co.uk review:
The house is really big and was absolutely perfect for our two families with a total of 4 adults and 4 children. The garden is well looked after and the pool makes huge fun. Breakfast in the morning overlooking the sea and in the evening barbecue by the pool, that is holidays. The place Kissamos has not much to offer and is less touristic, so a car rental is necessary to visit Chania, Balos Beach or Elafonissi. The owners of the villa are really nice and take care of every need that you have and even more. So we got, for example, extra high chair and a baby cot. Fresh great olive oil was an extra. Just great.(translated with Google Translate)

The visit to Michalis house, Villa Veghera, was our first experience with Airbnb, and it is definitely not the last. We have had the most amazing experience, and Michalis has been the best host we can imagine. Right from booking, to arrival, to the stay itself, he was only 5 minutes away on the phone. The house’s location is about one kilometer from the center of Kissamos. It is a very quiet area, secluded from the city, with the most wonderful views of the city and the sea. The house is equipped with everything you can imagine. Outdoor areas are fantastic, and the pool has a size so you can easily swim a few laps. The whole house is equipped with wireless internet, so there is no problem with streaming music etc. Michalis are always available with tips for places to visit, and especially recommendations on good authentic restaurants, both near Kissamos and Chania. All in all a fantastic stay in a wonderful house. (translated with Google Translate)

Our experience with Michalis and Villa Veghera was awesome. We were a party of eight and the villa was more than adequate for our stay. Before we arrived our host provided us with excellent information about the area, recommended places to visit as well as very detailed instructions to arrive to the villa. The villa itself is very well equipped, clean, secure, modern and has a very nice patio for enjoying a meal and overlooking the ocean. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was included in the villa and the manager was very insistent that we tell them if there was something else we needed which was great. The swimming pool was excellent and our kids had a blast in it. The location is close to several outstanding beaches and less than a mile to the center of a very lovely town with many shops and restaurants. With that said, I recommend you do get a rental car only for convenience not necessity. We highly recommend this villa and we would absolutely stay there again.

Michalis and his family have recently renovated the house, which is very spacious, modern, well-designed interiorly and very independent. We stayed at Villa Veghera in total relax, enjoying the pool, the BBQ, and the other amenities the villa offered. Michalis and his family were there for everything we needed, including restaurant and sight seeing recommendations and the likes. The villa is up a hill with a great view of the little town of Kissamos and the sea, and – although you will need the car to move around – it is close to the city center, the supermarket and in less than twenty minutes you can reach the wonderful Falasarna and Balos beaches and in less than one hour the Elafonissi beach. Would defnitely reccommend the villa to anybody and especially to families or groups of friends!
