Further details indoors

At The Front Of The Villa : A rustic covered veranda with polished table and cushioned bench seating overlooks the pool and from here a door opens directly into the cosy living area with two large Cretan sofas, a handsome antique dresser and a traditional stone fireplace housing a state of the art glass fronted fire. Through a striking stone archway, the spacious turquoise fitted kitchen comes complete with all the necessities of modern living including a dishwasher, washing machine, full electric cooker, fridge freezer and microwave. In one corner are a table and chairs for impromptu meals, whilst French windows on the other side lead to a small shaded terrace with patio furniture and a barbeque.

Off an Inner Hallway: Are one double and one twin bedroom, both with French windows to their own patio and garden areas on opposite sides of the house. There is also a small single bedroom opposite the double.

The double bedroom which has a smart an-suit shore room, is perfectly suitable for a romantic couple, while the twin bedroom has an additional single bed set in the loft and reached by its fairly small staircase, in case you are squeezing in a sixth person.

We would not recommend the use of the additional single bed by children under the age of 3, although eye-contact is possible through it and the twine bed.

Opposite the twin bedroom is a full bathroom, extravagantly equipped with a turbo massage bath.

Further details outdoors

Surround the villa and set into the lawn is a sparkling blue mosaic tiled pool measuring 8m x 4m, with a small children's pool at one end. The village square in Maza is just a short stroll away and boasts a taverna and ancient Byzantine church. For wonderful yogurt, day to day shopping and a few simple tavernas the village of Vrisses is just 2 km away, whilst for a day on the beach and a really wide choice of tavernas, Georgioupolis is the place to head for.

About this location

The Chania Prefecture region

Crete is a fantastic holiday destination with a large variety of landscapes and activities. You can

walk through the olive groves, linger in the ancient sites, visit the beautiful beaches and explore breathtaking scenery.

Another choice is the village Georgioupolis. It's a beautiful village situated on the northern coast of Crete, at about 35km distance from Chania and 20 km from Rethimno. The village square and tavern are the focal points for evening entertainment. (Chania and Rethimon are extremely interesting with their many shops and attractive Venetian harbour areas).


In the village Maza near the villa you can find a traditional tavern and a traditional cafeteria where you can taste the real Cretan specialities. For more amenities like mini markets, traditional taverns and cafenions, restaurants, tourist shops, post office, internet cafe or a local doctor you should drive to the village Vrisses. It’s about a 5min to drive.

For an even larger variety like all the necessary shops, numerous taverns and cafenions you can find them all along the coast, but a wide choice, such as banks and a post-office can be found, of course, at a short distance, in Chania. The location of the house makes it perfect for many walks all around the villa. Near the villa is a small Byzantine church to visit (Agios Nikolaos).

"Beautiful villa in stunning surroundings!"

Our family rented Villa Petra in June for a week. The Villa itself is lovely with great facilities. The swimming pool is ideal and secluded in a pretty garden. The view from the villa is stunning; olive groves and snow topped mountains. The nearest beach is a 15 min drive away and the town is small and sweet with a lovely sandy beach that is so shallow it's extremely safe for children. Chania harbour is picturesque and Captain Nick's boat trip is perfect! The most memorable part of our holiday though was the friendly warm reception we got from the taverna owners in Maza, Gregory and the local people in general. It was so good we are planning to return next year for two weeks.
