An exclusive detached private villa in chania, lovingly restored by the owner. The luxurious interior combines original Cretan features with contemporary fittings. This would appeal to guests looking for luxury, privacy and modern comforts.
Verekinthos Villas is an impressive 240sqm traditional Cretan villa with a 40sqm swimming pool, set on the outskirts of Gerolakos village in Keramia (just 16km from Chania centre and old town).
Originally built in the 1800's, the Papafilipakis family farm house, separated into three separate buildings, was used as a grape press, stable and chicken coop. The passage of time left the house (burnt once in the past, but not entirely) in the capable and loving hand of Nikos Papafilipakis, who in 2002 began to re-build these houses keeping the charm and history of the family farm house.
Lying at the foothills of the White Mountains, high castle-like stone walls shelter and embrace Verekinthos Villas. Set on the hillside, past the electric gate and parking area, the various levels offer several outdoor entertainment areas; large patio, terrace, barbeque area, hammock and a uniquely shaped swimming pool. Perched above all are the villas; made up still of three separate structures (main, second and third building).Exclusivity regardless of the number of guests: Guests booking the villa/s will be the only guests at that time, regardless of number. This is to mean that should 2 people book Verekinthos Villas (and are allocated the main building), there will be no other 'stranger' guests in the 2nd and 3rd building.
Enjoy the ever changing landscape of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) from our Villa in Chania, birds chirping and general serenity of this quiet and peaceful location.
1 large villa made up of 3 connected yet independent buildings. Each of these best accommodates 2 people and can accommodate up to 3 people.
As the estate is made up of 3 buildings, it is best suited to large families or friends travelling together. Each offers the desired privacy and ideal opportunity to spend quality time, activities and meals together.

This was the main house and is the historic home of the Papafilipakis family dating back to 1800's. It used to function as the home in which its owners stored flour, wheat and where they made wine and tsikoudia.
Today it is made up of a living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The living room has large comfortable leather couches, solid wood paneled ceiling and fine stone finishes on the interior walls. Here you will also find a fireplace with firewood, satellite TV, DVD player, radio and CD player, board games and even a photo album which shows the stages in which Verekinthos was revamped and rebuilt. Also, take advantage of the telescope to gaze at the stars from Verekinthos Villa's spectacular location!
Slightly elevated from the living room is the dining room (6-seater) which is open to the well equipped kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, stove, oven, extractor fan, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, microwave oven, mixer, small blender, crockery and cutlery.
The functional and warmly decorated bathroom has a large bathtub with shower curtain and washing machine.
The bedroom (upstairs) has a large double bed, wooden floors, dresser, ample cupboard space, safe box, air conditioning unit and views to the mountains from the windows.

Today, it has been magically transformed into an independent traditional villa, with a cozy living room, bathroom and 'ondas' bedroom. No kitchenette.
The living room has a beige couch, fireplace with firewood, TV, DVD player, radio and CD player. Steps lead from here to the 'ondas' bedroom with a double bed. Bathroom with shower.
