Villa Faye, Vrisses, Crete                                                                                

Set on a hillside on the edge of a small hamlet 1.5 km from Vrisses this handsome air-conditioned villa provides an exceptionally comfortable base for exploring this green and verdant area in the rural heart of Crete, yet it's still only a 10 to 15 minute drive to the "Blue Flag" sandy beaches of Georgioupolis.

Owned by Manousos and named after his young daughter, this lovely old house has been painstakingly renovated, then fitted out and equipped to a remarkable high standard furnished with many beautiful pieces. Polished wood floors, high beamed ceilings and exposed stonework all add to the period flavour yet contrast perfectly with the two lavishly appointed bathrooms and the equally well equipped, modern kitchen.

The main entrance door of the villa opens into an elegant sitting room with a lovely stone archway that leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining room with large fridge-freezer, dish washer and full cooker with ceramic hob. To one side through a smaller archway is a hugely romantic seating area set around an open fireplace, great for roasting chestnuts perhaps, or just enjoying a nightcap on a cool evening.

All the bedrooms are furnished with fitted wardrobes, dressing tables  and comfortable beds with quality mattresses. On the ground floor is a double bedroom, with adjoining bathroom with a turbo massage bath and a washing machine.

At first floor level there is a further attractively furnished sitting room with open fireplace and two large sofas, plus one twin and one double bedroom sharing another luxurious bathroom with turbo massage bath. These two bedrooms also share a spacious, partially covered roof terrace, with quality cane patio furniture and stunning views towards the mountains.

High walls and electric gates appear to provide more than sufficient privacy from the tiny lane that leads past the villa and the only passers by we spotted were a flock of sheep without a shepherd and a few geese.  Once through the gateway, the garden opens up and a fragrant jasmine bush marks the edge of the villa's extensive terrace tiled in local stone. On the far side of the terrace and a few steps from the kitchen, is a purpose built barbecue complete with chimney and oven, with nearby a covered gazebo with dining table and chairs, where you can wine and  dine whilst savouring the gorgeous and extensive rural views over the pool and countryside to the distant White Mountains.  Five steps below the terrace the large 10m x 5m pool is surrounded by areas of lawn bordered by pretty flowerbeds.

All bedrooms and both living rooms have TV's with the TV in ground floor living room also having a satellite receiver. Both double beds have two single mattresses providing more space and comfort.

Villa Faye  is situated in a rural area and although you are unlikely to ever see any passing traffic, local geese, chickens and sheep will in all likelihood make their presence known.

Many of the villages in the surroundings still remain virtually untouched by tourism and we were very taken with the atmospheric village of Vafes where there are some lovely old houses, some dating back to Venetian times. We had lunch outside at the taverna on the square and the food was simple, but very good.  

NB. If you want to wine and dine without driving, there are some good tavernas in Vrisses, which is no more than a 20 minutes walk.

Location of Villa Faye
Vrisses, Crete

Although Georgioupolis with its lovely sandy beaches is now a thriving seaside resort it still retains a pleasing rural ambience. Tavernas and cafes surround the bustling village. In Vrisses, huge Plane trees line the road where you will find mini-markets, a bank and a bakery (do try the cheese pies). In the morning this is a bustling little town, but by mid-day the pace slows and the tavernas spread their tables out towards the banks of the river Voutakis

"We had a wonderfull stay at Villa Faye. Everything was OK."

- May 2013
"Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Faye. Thanks especially to Diana for telling us about Easter and the celebrations beforehand. We were able to participate fully with the people of Vrysses and appreciated Manousos's Mother making herself known to us in the village church. We have felt it an honour to be able to stay in such a beautiful Villa and take part in village life the way we were. Very Best Wishes to All Adrienne and Nigel "

David Crossthwaite - Sep 2012
Highly Recommended
"Villa Faye was a beautiful surprise. Immaculately kept and we were looked after wonderfully. Glorious views of the surrounding countryside and the beautiful White Mountains. We particularly loved the balcony with table and chairs to sip our evening aperitif overlooking the spectacular scenery. Mainly ate in Georgioupolis. Great value and all the restaurants looked after us very well. Recommend trips to Chania Venetian Harbour, Knossos and Elafonisi especially. "
