Villa Toula, Armeni, Crete

Free wifi


Villa Toula is a beautiful stone house where Toula's natural talents as a homemaker spill into every corner. Drawing from times being slowly consigned to history, she has created a delightfully romantic Cretan interior with the generous use of  embroidered filigree linen curtains, colourful hand-made rugs and lovingly polished furniture.

An exceptionally pretty garden encircles the Villa where little box hedges decorate her emerald green lawns and a profusion of roses, jasmine and many other flowers spill out of the flower beds.

 

Location

1km away, there is a recommended  taverna in the tiny village of Agias Pantes and for more choice at just a little over 5 mins drive is the foodie paradise of Armeni with more excellent tavernas and a delicatessen/butcher.

Location of Villa Toula
Armeni, Crete

Something of a foodies paradise, the village of Armeni is notable for its large shady plain trees lining the main street where you will find a choice of simple cafenions and three excellent tavernas. There is also a small mini -market and amazingly, a well stocked delicatessen with wonderful local cheeses, yoghurt and charcuterie as well as a large choice of frozen fish! Of a morning, fresh bread is delivered to the cafenion on the small triangular central square, you'll see what we mean! Nearby Kalives (approx 5min drive) 18 km east of Chania and strung along the edge of Souda Bay, Kalives is still very much a Greek village that has taken tourism in its stride and the bustling main street reflects the status quo with local shops, mini markets, tavernas and cafes happily doing business with all and sundry.

Villa Toula - Just Fabulous
"A beautiful and fabulous villa in an idyllic and peaceful location. Perfect to unwind and relax. Felt very lucky to be able to stay their for our holiday.Enjoyed 2 BBQs in BBQ area and time by pool was great in lovely surroundings.Villa gardens like an English country garden but with Grapevines and lime trees( which we were allowed to pick and enjoy).Owners very welcoming providing regular surprise treats ( fresh homemade cake and Spinach and Feta cheese pies and homemade Raki!).Perfect base to discover north west Crete.Local beach at Kalyves ideal with great food in local beach side tavernas. Also great traditional food in taverna up the road from villa in Agio Pantes.Recommend boat trip to Balos beach/Gramvousa via Kissamos.Would definitely want to visit Villa again.Many thanks "
Roger G
Highly recommended
"Everything during the whole process was very clear and correct with very accurate and relevant information provided.The information available regarding our chosen Villa and location was very accurate and enabled us to make an informed choice. Would certainly recommend Freelance to others and would use again ourselves in the future"
Laura
Villa Toula is BEAUTIFUL!
"Villa Toula is secluded, about 1 or 2 km from a small village. The villa is gorgeous, full of local flowers, plants, trees. The villa has a very old-school Crete charm to it. The hosts left some wine, beer, juice, and fresh cake for us upon arrival. We only stayed a couple of nights but the hosts were very helpful and communicative with us throughout our stay. I had a couple of last minute questions and they responded right away. Great vacation home to stay in if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful trip"
Vera
Perfect!
"The villa is very stylish and located in a remote quiet area. We loved the garden, the bbq area and the pool, we spent there days without even going to the beach. There are nice little villages nearby for shopping food or going to a restaurant"
Katherine N
just perfect
"I booked Villa Toula for its countryside location and private pool - it was just perfect. The villa had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. We would have breakfast on the terrace at the front, then head to the pool. It's a decent size and depth. The shaded terrace area at one end was lovely for a little afternoon siesta. One day the owner brought us bread, olives and raki - what a nice touch. The resorts of Kalyves and Georgioupolis are only a 15min drive, while Chania and Rethymno are about 40 minutes. Both lovely towns, but Chania was my favourite! We had a wonderful holiday and would love to return and explore a little more of the island.” We loved Villa Toula and would definitely return!"
Andre
Beautiful house
"A beautiful house on a very well-kept property in exposed secluded location. We were thrilled by the lovingly created, by daily irrigation extremely green and flowery garden. The house is comfortable and authentically furnished. All windows and doors were provided with a high-quality insect protection. The pool was cleaned daily before getting up. The nearest village with taverns and supermarket is within easy walking distance. Nice was also the barbecue cottage with wood oven and large barbecue are"
Andre
Wunderschönes Haus
"Ein wunderschönes Haus auf einem sehr gepflegten Grundstück in exponierter Alleinlage. Begeistert waren wir von dem liebevoll angelegten, durch tägliche Bewässerung äußerst grünen und blumigen Garten. Das Haus ist komfortabel und authentisch eingerichtet. Alle Fenster und Türen waren mit einem hochwertigen Insektenschutz versehen. Der Pool wurde täglich vor dem Aufstehen gereinigt. Das nächste Dorf mit Tavernen und Einkaufsmöglichkeit ist problemlos zu Fuß erreichbar. Nett war auch das Barbecue-Häuschen mit Holzbackofen und großer Grillstelle"
Cedric
Wonderful holiday
"Villa Toula is ideally located between Chania and Rethymno. The garden and pool were very nice, surrounded by lemon and olive trees. Thank you again for these wonderful holidays. We highly recommend."

Formidables vacances
"La Villa Toula est idéalement située entre Chania et Rethymno. Le jardin et la piscine étaient très agréables, entourée de citronniers et oliviers. Merci encore pour ces formidables vacances . Nous recommandons vivement ."
Vjacheslav and family
Perfect view in the morning
"Perfect view in the morning, just in the middle between Chania and Rethymno so very good for traveling around. Good supermarket and very tasty bakery is in Vryses. A lot of interesting information is in the booklet provided in house. In overall, can recommend if you like the quietness"
Edward
Lovely Villa
"Lovely house, decorated in traditional style but with all mod cons. Beautiful gardens and the owners were very helpful. A short walk from village with a taverna, mini-market, pharmacy and café."
Fiona
Perfect Stay
"Thanks again for a perfect stay in Villa Toula. The house and it's surroundings offered more than we expected. It was very clean, perfectly maintained and you can see/feel the love and hard work put into it."
Marc
Dream Villa
"We booked Villa Toula because it was a bit secluded and yet not far from the sea and tavernas. One of the best properties we booked. Anyone who is looking for a quiet and perfectly maintained place should book it. The Villa & the pool area are a dream. It takes about 10 minutes by car to Kalyves & 20 minutes to Rethymnon & Chania. We highly recommend it. "
Joris
Charming hideaway
"A cosy, quiet, clean and very charming hideaway in the middle of nature but close to the beach and village. Lovely view and nice pool. Great for family with kids. Lovely hosts who respect your privacy but treat you to fresh fruit from their garden and local dishes,Freelance provided excellent and fast communication, and clear directions. We had a perfect stay... will be back. ” "
Marina

Ruth
Fabulous garden and pool.
"My husband and i stayed at Villa Toula for a week in May and thoroughly enjoyed our time there, fabulous garden and pool. Would definitely stay again!"
Dave & Sue Maw
Oasis of green in a wonderful rural setting
"Villa Toula a little oasis of green in a wonderful rural setting,yet only a short stroll from Ag Pantes,here there are some very nice places to eat all are different, there is a small mini-market and bakery. Villa Toula is ideal for exploring the area,hills,beaches and local villages. Inside all that you would ever need is more than catered for,the tranquil gardens and BBQ area were a real draw to us as was the pool with shaded areas to escape the heat. The walk back will require a torch {mini-market}but the stars are beautiful,village wine seemed to assist this journey. If you like a rural setting away from the herd then this is for you. Turn left from Toula up the hill,on the left as you enter the village is a two table Taverna, heaven ! 10min stroll. Dave & Sue Maw "
