Rent a holiday-home on Crete

In June 2021, the reconstruction and renovation of my husband Michalis' parental home was completed. The detached farmhouse became the Village Villa
Marika, the ground floor of the residential building to Village Villa Mimis, named after the parents. With handmade furniture, partly made of olive wood from our olive grove and with great attention to detail, we offer the apartments with modern
comfort and traditional atmosphere, attention paid to freedom of movement without lacking in cosiness.
Welcome, feel just “arrived on holiday”!

Location and surroundings

Drapanias, the traditional home village of my husband Michalis, is 35 km away from Chania, easy to reach on the highway towards Kissamos.
We will meet you at the exit and bring you to your booked holiday home.

From the centre of the village, the well-developed mountain road leads up to the district of ANO Drapanias. Our two Village Villas Marika and Mimis are the last buildings after 1. 7km,
From your terrace you have an unobstructed view of the Cretan mountains and olive groves. The mountain road takes you even further to the olive groves,
where we also harvest our olives in winter. A wonderful path for a walk!

In the village itself you will find everything for everyday life, a small supermarket, a really excellent bakery, a kafenion and an old-established restaurant. And if you feel like taking the bus across the country, the bus stop is right next to the supermarket.
There are very warm people in Drapanias who are always happy to help when a question arises. The beach of Drapanias is 3km away, also on foot a beautiful path through nature and is not yet mass tourism


Many popular holiday destinations are within easy reach, such as Balos, Elafonissi Beach, Falassarna or Polirinia.

5km away is the county town of Kissamos, there you will find big supermarkets and small Aunt Emma shops, banks, the post office, medical care, a beach promenade,
Sandy beach, tourist shops etc.

We ourselves live in Trachilos at our gallery, 400m from the ferry port of Kissamos on the way to Falassarna. But of course we are always available for you.
We are very happy to welcome you.
Sylvia and Michalis
