Description from owner


Villa Givera is surely the place you are looking for your dreamy getaway to Crete Island. It’s really your home away from home and let’s discover together why this is so!

Villa Givera is truly an exceptional property nestled in a peaceful hillside location only 5km far from Rethymnon, the town of beautiful sunsets. This lovely property offers privacy, peace of mind and complete relaxation thanks to its privileged location and the overwhelming and unobstructed views to the clear blue sky, the Cretan countryside with the olive groves and the inviting Aegean Sea. The villa boasts a spacious, well appointed interior (130sqm) with wooden ceiling and stone tile details, and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 persons in its 3 airy and sunny bedrooms. The big spaces, the classy decor, the large terrace with its lovely sunsets, the stunning swimming pool along with the beautiful gardens and the BBQ facilities will give your vacation a special touch of comfort and wellness. Additionally, Villa Givera is located only 2.5km far from the highway which connects the whole island. Thus, it's a crossroad between the two biggest towns of Crete, Heraklion and Chania and it's the perfect starting point for visiting every corner of the island.


The villa features a 1000 sqm outdoor space with a large tile paved veranda and an even larger pool deck with a private, eco friendly swimming pool (9m long & 1.40m deep). The spectacular views and the breathtaking sunsets will enchant you each day and evening, assuring you a memorable stay. The family size wooden table of the veranda invites you to enjoy your Cretan meals, while the lounge furniture is ideal for a night drink by the pool. At the stone-built BBQ facilities with the extra sink and fridge you can experience homemade al fresco lunches. Additionally, there is a lot of space covered with grass, ornamental trees, rose bushes, geraniums and aromatic plants, whilst the stone paved path leading to the entrance of the villa is the perfect place to safely park your car.


The villa is a one-storey building with a stylishly furnished open-plan living room and a large fully equipped kitchen with a dining table for 4. The spacious sitting area features one triple and one double sofa, an armchair, a dining table for 6, a fireplace, and two double windows opening onto the veranda and the swimming pool. A long corridor connects the living room with the bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa disposes of three bedrooms (1 double and 2 twins) with great views to the garden and pool, and two bathrooms: one with bathtub and another with shower cabin. The house is equipped with a/c in all bedrooms and living room, washing machine, dishwasher, free satellite WiFi, flat screen TV, DVD player, hairdryer, safe box, iron/iron board, first aid kit and all necessary items and appliances for a comfortable stay.

* Bath and pool towels, bed linen, bed covers, blankets and extra pillows are provided

* Housekeeping every 3 - 4 days. Pool and garden attendance twice a week.

* Baby travel cot, high chair, bed side protection, baby bath, potty seat provided upon request. Toys and books are available.

Givera Villas (Villa Givera and Villa Metochi) is a family business launched by Mr. George Kazilas who wanted to put his own spin on the promotion of Cretan hospitality and top-notch accommodation and service. In 2006 he raised two lovely, private villas with personal commitment and care in order to preserve the Cretan heritage and offer visitors the opportunity to explore the beauties of this land, enjoy the landscape and experience the Cretan way of life. The longtime know-how of Kazilas Family is a guarantee of high quality vacations and a travelling experience you rarely get as a mass tourist. Villa Givera and Villa Metochi stand in two different locations, but they are both just a few-minute drive from the town of Rethymnon.

Very Good

“Perfect location guarantees a wonderful holiday”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2015

A beautiful place near Rethymno with a magnificent view from the top of the sea and the surrounding area. The house is perfectly divided in one floor and very well equipped. Normally most lacking something, but in this house everything was there. We (my wife and our two daughters, 14 and 12 vears old) enjoy for our two weeks the house and the great pool every time we came back from our trips in the nearby lovely gorges and beaches. Whenever we had a question or needed help, Marina was on hand and was able to help us.The pool was very clean and was cleaned often in the morning. Similarly, the cleaning of the rooms and the two bathrooms. The Zisis restaurant with delicious and inexpensive meals and drinks can be reached in only 5 to 10 minutes driving time. Same to bakery, Supermarket and other Shops. Anyone looking for a quiet, private holiday that is right here.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your positive review. It would be nice to host you again in the future.

“A wonderful place with stunning views!”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2013

What a place! The house is beautiful and has everything one could need. The large pool is perfect, the terrace with its stunning views of the sea, hills, olive groves and amazing sunsets are enchanting. The private location with low traffic road is perfect, only five kilometers from Rethimno. The service is excellent and the owner is very nice and helpful We had 15 fantastic days here and we will definitely return. We really recommend this place!

“Exiting vacations in Villa Givera for 2nd time”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2013

This is the second consecutive summer that we visit Crete and stay at the same place. Last year my whole family got exited with the villa and the area, so this summer we decided to repeat this exiting experience without any hesitations. This time was even better because we were more familiar with the place. What to say about Villa Givera? It is just amazing, so welcoming and makes you feel like home from the very first moment. Beautiful and spacious interior, big and perfectly equipped kitchen, lovely exterior with stone surfaces, marvellous views and sunsets. The pool was just perfect at the end of your adventure-filled days. The villa is located on an extremely convenient area, close to Rethimno and to the National Road that connects the island. There is a super market, butcher’s shop, bakery in close distance. The town of Rethimno is so beautiful and picturesque and offers a variety of good quality tavernas. A big thanks to Marina for her hospitality. We will surely come back!

“Amazing villa in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

My partner and I have rented houses throughout Europe, but Villa Givera takes the prize for exceeding our expectations! The house is simply stunning, extremely comfortable and very tastefully decorated. The view of the sea is breathtaking and the sunsets really amazing. We stayed for 1 week and we just had a great time there. Crete is lovely and has many things to do and places to visit. It was easy to get from the villa to the tourist sites around the island and there was a large super market 3km from the house where you could buy breakfast and other supplies. The owner was really service-minded and suggested us some very good restaurants at the old town of Rethimno. We highly recommend this place.
