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.

Location description from owner

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

A walk in the island of Crete is a scent of spring flowers growing in the yards of the houses. Generations of Minoan, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, Turkish, Jewish and Egyptian people lived here.History is alive in Crete, breathing through the bow strokes of the lyra and the violin, the sound of the lute and the bagpipe. Finally, it is the tastes of a history of eastern spices, unique greens and herbs, blessed oil and wine.

Here, in these cultural crossroads, a lot of memories are alive and a large number of elements of other cultures still form a part of the everydayness of the Cretan people.The total area of Crete is 8.336 sq.Km. It is located at the southern edge of the Aegean Sea and it has a remarkable coastline of more than 1000 Km. It is bordered by the Cretan Sea to the north and the Lybian Sea to the South. It is surrounded by a number of small islands (Gavdow, Gavdopoula, Chrysi, Koufonisi, Dia, Dyonisades etc.).

The length of the island from one edge (west) to the other (east) is 256 Km. The percentage of mountainous area is 49%. The predominant mountain ranges are the Lefka Ori (2.452m), Philoritis (2.456m) and Dikti (2148m).Crete is the largest island in Greece - the fifth largest in the Mediterranean - and there are many jewels just waiting to be discovered by the more adventurous explorers of holiday treasures. Its exquisite coastline is dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. Crete with its nearby islands form the Crete Region which is based at Heraklion and is divided into four regional units. From west to east these are: Chania, Rethymnon, Heraklion and Lasithi.

Giannoudi

Villa Givera is situated in a peaceful location only 5 km far from the center of Rethymnon. Nearest shops, tavernas and beach are located 3km away. 2,5km from the highway. Easy connection with all parts of the island. Car is needed.

There are many great attractions nearby, including Rethymnon's old town, the Venetian Fortezza, the Venetian harbour, the Loggia, the Rimondi Fountain, Saint Franciscus Church, the Neratzies mosque, the famous Sacred Monastery of Arcadi, the Village of Margarites and the Village of Eleftherna. The beaches of Preveli, Triopetra, Ligres, Agios Pavlos, Damnoni, Ammoudi and Rodakino are of exceptional beauty (Southern Rethymno). In addition, the small towns of Plakias and Agia Galini are worth visiting and there are many beautiful beaches around.

Rethymnon

Welcome to the town of Rethymnon, a place blessed with beauty, embraced by breathtaking mountains and the deep blue of the Mediterranean, decorated with renaissance colors and inhabited by people known for their hospitality, honoring their ancestors and traditions. It is a place one falls in love at first sight and visitors are able to feel the positive vibes of the city from the very first moment, making them feel at home.

The town of Rethymnon is an ideal tourist destination for visitors who wish to explore the rich cultural heritage and the natural beauties of Crete. This well-organized town offers to visitors a variety of picturesque routes to follow and numerous historical monuments to visit. The old town of Rethymnon still preserves its old urban structure to a great extend, formed during the Venetian period and later reformed during the Turkish occupation.

The beautiful town of Rethymnon is standing on the site where ancient Rithymna used to be, as archaeological excavations of the late Neolithic period proved. It is the gate way between Chania and Heraklion. It's full of rich history, ancient sites, magnificent sandy beaches, Byzantine churches, lovely villages & lively resorts. Rethymnon combines an old- time aristocratic appearance with a modern aspect, a blend which is creating a unique atmosphere.

In Rethymnon you can enjoy the breathtaking sight of an endless sandy beach that meets on one side the blue see and on the other the enchanting view of the town. The beach of Rethymnon is 12 km long, it starts from the historical town center and extends to the Eastern part of the isle reaching Scaleta. Rethymnon beach has fine-grained brilliant light brown sand where you can walk barefoot and feel how soft and beautiful it is. There's nothing more rejuvenating than kicking off your shoes to sink your toes into powdery-golden, squeaky-clean beach sand.

“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.

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.
