We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was lovely, and very well equipped, and the welcome from Chryssa and Panagiotis was wonderful. The location was perfect -close enough to amenities and the coast to be convenient, but also quiet and private. The Orange trees in the garden were a particular pleasure – the smell was beautiful as was the fruit. In all, a terrific holiday.
My Mother and i had a truly wonderful time at Villa Chryssa. Its an idyllic place and perfect for a restful holiday. Chryssa and Panagiotis were as charming and helpful as it was possible to be. Days spent reading, relaxing and swimming just slipped by and when we felt like an expedition into the hills or towards the coast, it was all just an easy drive away. Neo Chorio has a genuine, touristy, atmosphere and the shops there were incredibly useful.
Set within glorious countryside framed by the White Mountains is Neo Chorio, a quiet sleepy village of just 600 inhabitants on the old road between Chania and Rethymnon, Centuries of history ooze from its stone buildings. It was mentioned by Edward Lear in his 1865 Cretan Journal and today remains a charming retreat amidst rural tranquility. Villa Chryssa is a traditional stone built Cretan house with private pool. It rests in the valley of the village of Neo Chorio, amongst the olive groves, with breath-taking mountain views, and is just 300 metres from the village centre with its cafes, 2 tavernas and village shop.
