Local attractions & activities
You can stop looking at other places for your stay in Chania. This is hands down the best place. Location is near the city but away from the narrow streets and noise and touristy areas. It is but 1.3km to the nearest beach and located in a quiet and serene neighborhood. You can even see the sea from the house. The house is newly built with a basement and 3 levels. Beautifully designed and thought out by the architect owner. Basement has a large bedroom with a double bed and toilet (plus laundry area with washer and dryer). The ground floor is the living and dining room with Netflix for the kids and an outdoor pool which is heated over spring and autumn. Level 1 has 2 bedrooms with a bath and level 3 also 2 bedrooms with a bath. I only wish my own house was as nicely built and thought out. Kostas and Christine are excellent hosts. Also preparing a baby cot at no charge for our infant. They were on hand when we reached really late (because of multiple factors) and we were amazed that our hosts had prepared spinach pies, loads of fresh fruits, bread and breakfast items like ham, cheese, eggs etc. There was even a Nespresso machine with pods, drip coffee maker, oven, microwave, induction stove and all the cooking utilities that you might need. There is a dishwasher with pods for washing. They were also super flexible about our check out time. The hosts are also super friendly and made recommendations as to where we could go to see the sights and where we could eat as well. Cleanliness was impeccable - my wife who is Hygiea's "disciple" was impressed. There are clean and really soft towels (1 large and 1 small) with embossed words (FOS villa) for everyone. There was a washer with soap all ready for use. This villa is appropriate for large groups with children and the hosts are the best we have encountered to date (over various continents). Compared to the cramped and touristy quarters in the old town, this is a breath of fresh air. Go and experience it for yourself. PS Sincerely and thoughtfully prepared to be a home away from home in every sense of the word!

Fos Villa offers luxurious surroundings in a local setting. We really loved the modern design of the house, where every little detail had been considered. The villa had plenty of space for three generations, and the heated pool was used several times a day. We enjoyed the tranquility of having our own home away from the busy tourist areas. The local area offered everything we needed within walking distance: great restaurants just around the corner, mini markets and the beach. Chania was only 20 minutes away with the local bus. Kostas and Christina were welcoming and helpful hosts next door, and their welcome at the night of our arrival was incredible. You will discover that the pictures do not lie - Fos Villa is everything we expected and even more.
I would definitely come back next summer, and highly recommend for group of friends or family who are looking for proximity to the seaside and old town in Chania! So many highlights of our stay (and the reasons for recommendations): - fantastic amenities, the pool and overall decoration are simply a delight to wake up to every morning, and to come back to every evening after a day at the beach - 10 mins drive to the Agia beach (and one of the best beach clubs in town) - 15 mins drive to Old Town, where all the great restaurants and unique Chania vibe are - 1 min walk to a great cafe nearby, in case you are lazy some day and want to just enjoy some local food with a view - last but not least, the fantastic hosts! Christini and Kostas are really nice and quick in responding to our (endless) questions. We really felt at home, and cannot wait till next year's summer retreat in Chania again :)
Fos Villa was a wonderful part of our time in Crete. The best part of our stay was the attentiveness and hospitality of our hosts Christini and Kostas. They met us upon arrival with a plate of warm pastries. They walked us through the very well appointed Fos Villa. They live right next door and when we needed an extra pool chair and towels, they were extremely quick to respond. Fos Villa has everything you will need. Christini designed the house herself and did a stunning job at using every ounce of space. The pool area is a wonderful oasis surrounded by grass. The bedrooms have a spa theme with olive oil soap products and Fos Villa embroidered amenities. Truly wonderful! Another great part of our stay was enjoying the restaurant that is literally 50m around the corner from the villa. It’s a local neighborhood restaurant and the owner will warmly great you and recommend some of his favorites. Incredible! I can’t wait to return to Fos. Thank you again Christini and Kostas for your unrivaled hospitality. Warmest regards, Jay
BEST VACATION EVER
My wife found Fos Villa by doing a basic web search, but I now believe it wasn't just coincidence! From the moment we arrived on Saturday 30 June, we knew that our trip was going to be special. The incredible view, the amazing design and decoration of the villa by Kristina, the warmth expressed by her and her husband Kostas, we immediately felt that this trip would ruin all future vacations for us...no future vacation can compete. The beds are extremely comfortable, and our kids absolutely loved the in-ground pool (as well as the adults!). We left on Thursday 12 July with sadness that our trip was over, but also with a high level of motivation to return to see Kostas and Kristina again, and stay at their beautiful home...Fos Villa! The people of Crete (and more specifically Chania) are the kindest and warmest people I have ever met. The food was amazing. The beaches, the stores, the restaurants, and the people will always have a place in my heart.
Really fantastic vacation week!
Left on Aug 8, 2018 for a stay in Aug 2018
We (all 10 of us, 3 generations ranging in age from 80 to 3) absolutely enjoyed our vacation at Fos(Light) Villa. Our hosts made us feel so welcome from the word GO! They had stocked the refrigerator and had prepared a delicious meal of traditional stuffed peppers, tomatoes, courgette flowers and rolled grape leaves!! It all went so well with the bottle of wine!! The location in Galatas Village (10 minutes from Chania port) was super convenient. We would do day trips in the area and come home in the early evening to a beautiful pool where all enjoyed the setting sun. An extra perk was the taverna next door where everyone found a dish they loved. Kostas and Christini were super hosts. We recommend this beautiful house to one and all: a group wishing for a lovely setting, a multiply generation family or a couple of families wanting to spend some vacation time together! Loved it and hope we shall be able to visit again!
This villa was everything we had hoped for, and even so much more. Kostas and Kristina did an amazing job in designing and decorating this home. The trip we just took to Chania was by far the best vacation my family has taken, and a huge reason was this villa. Each room has it's own air conditioning, the mattresses and sheets are of premium quality and extremely comfortable, and the house is full of all the comforts of home (and more). I have no doubt we will be back to Chania (hopefully sooner than later!) and Fos Villa will definitely be the place where we will stay. Thank you so much for your warmth, your generosity and the amazing home you designed and we had the privilege to use! It could not have been better!!!
Fos Villa is absolutely stunning. It was perfect for our weekend in Chania. It is so close to town, but just far away enough to have peace and quiet. It is literally steps away from one of the best local 5-star rated restaurants - Elia Taverna! Fos Villa is a must stay place if you are looking for something more than a cramped noisy hotel. Having a full kitchen, private pool and stunning decor made this stay fantastic. The home truly is a design gem!! Thank you to Kostas and Christini! You made our stay so wonderful!!
More than perfect
The villa was perfect, it was super clean super bright And amazing decorated. The owners was very friendly always with a smile and very very polite, the villa was full of local fruits wine and breakfast items. It was amazing We have Good Time and next Time that We Will Go to Chania We Will stay at Fos Villa Five stars from the bottom of our hart
Un séjour inoubliable à tous points de vue. Christini et Kostas sont des hôtes remarquables, attentionnés et réactifs. La communication est très facile. La maison est magnifique, l’aménagement et le design sont extraordinaires. La literie est d’une très rare qualité, digne des hôtels haut de gamme. La piscine est telle que nous la rêvions. Nous avons été particulièrement touché par toutes les marques d’attention de Kostas et sa famille. Accueil avec des spécialités locales : tiropita, spanakopita, miel... un soir Kostas nous a même amené un plat de Bouratsa fait maison, un véritable délice. Le séjour entre amis avec des enfants a été un régal. Un moment vraiment unique.
Christini's & Kosta's place is truly wonderful. We had high hopes, but the place was even better than expected. It is a greatly designed villa with high attention to detail. We spend 1 week in the villa with 10 colleagues. There were enough spaces to find some privacy (both inside and out), even if everybody was home. The bedrooms are silent and spacious. With 3 bathrooms, no-one ever was in another's way. I am sure that whether you come with one (or more) families, a group of friends or colleagues, you will have a great time in Kosta's place. Kosta & Christini, by the way, are lovely people that speak English perfectly and that are available at any time if there are questions. I certainly reccommend the place to anyone that is looking for a high-end accommodation, and hope to get back to their place some time, then I'll bring my family :).
Incredible Cretan hospitality! We spent six fabulous nights at Fos Villa which comfortably slept two families.. four adults and five children under 9. Villa is very modern, spacious, spotless and light-filled. Ideal location to explore the island and easy direct access to Chania town. Walking distance to bakeries, cafes and taverns all in Galatas village, and all ammenities a short drive away. The owners are incredibly friendly and accommodating, even installing new locks on external doors after we expressed concern for children accessing the pool. All external doors now have a key lock for extra pool safety. Highlight of our stay was our welcome dinner when we arrived in the evening.. a tray of delicious home-made ‘yemista’, fresh bread, feta cheese and a cake for dessert!! Our fridge was stocked with organic fruit and veggies including avocados and the sweetest mandarins! A big thank you to Kosta and Christini. We can’t wait to come back and explore more of beautiful Crete and stay at amazing Fos Villa again.
