Having holidayed in similar properties to our own many times in recent years we believe our pricing structure to be highly competitive. Our villa is not equipped just as a holiday let but has been furnished as our home in Greece.


We believe that due to these reasons our villa represents excellent value for the standard of accommodation, views, luxury and privacy delivered, and indeed the feedback we get regularly from our guests supports this view.


Price of short-term in-season villa hire includes:

  • Your private use of the detached villa, pool and gated grounds

  • Clean sheets, towels and tea towels supplied twice per week*

  • Twice-weekly service of housekeeper*

  • Regular cleaning and maintenance of the solar-heated swimming pool by our engineer*

  • Services of our gardener*

  • A welcome grocery pack

  • Internet (wi-fi)

  • Local and international phone calls

  • All heat, power and air-conditioning

  • Solar-powered domestic hot water heating and heating of the pool

  • Pool towels are provided locally at a small weekly charge payable to our housekeeper. Please note that beach towels are not provided.

* Local Covid-19  restrictions may impact these services


Unlike other owners who charge for air conditioning or pool heating locally at extra cost, air conditioning to all bedrooms is included in our standard charge as is solar heating of the swimming pool.


Use of the wi-fi and phone facilites is provided, subject to a reasonable-usage policy.


Weekly Prices 

Rates shown per week for 2 persons unless otherwise stated. If your stay spans two price periods then the weekly rate will be divided into a daily rate and charged accordingly for that period.


For parties of 3 or more there is an additional charge of £4 (€5) per additional person per night to cover laundry, cleaning and additional utility costs.

Winter lets

Extended winter lets are available at a discounted rate. For out of season stays of 4 weeks or longer we offer a price per 4-week period which does not include cleaning, housekeeping visits, grocery pack, laundry or utility costs.

Please note that winter lets are for a maximum of 2 persons only. Additional details on request.


Saturday changeovers are preferred in peak season to fit with flights from the vast majority of UK airports.

Abridged Booking Conditions


Above are prices for villa hire, inclusive of our adminstration costs, in the period shown and do not include flights or transportation to/from the airport.


If your requested period spans two price brackets then the price charged per day will change.


Please note these prices are for the entire villa per week, not per person, for an occupancy of up to 2 persons. For parties of 3 or more there is an additional charge of £4 (€5) per additional person per night to cover laundry, cleaning and additional utility costs.


  • Prices are quoted per week in £ Pounds Sterling and € Euros and you are at liberty to pay in either currency.

  • Occupation of the property is from 4pm on the first day booked to 10am on the day of departure, to allow for cleaning.

  • Pets are not allowed.

  • Diving into the swimming pool is not permitted for safety reasons.

  • Young children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.

  • You are respectfully reminded that Villa Mia is non-smoking throughout, including the villa grounds.


Payment should be made as follows: a 20% non-refundable deposit of the weekly rate is due at time of booking with the remaining 80% due in full 8 weeks before departure. If booking within 8 weeks of departure, full payment is due immediately. Payment can be made in pounds sterling by cheque drawn on a UK bank, or by BACS deposit in Sterling or Euros to our bank in Greece. Account details will be supplied on request.

Payment can also be made via PayPal on request. 


If you subsequently find you need to cancel your holiday for any reason, we will make every reasonable effort to re-let the property and return to you any payment made, minus a small administration fee for any mailings etc we have undertaken to process your booking. However, it must be recognised that re-letting cannot be guaranteed, and this does not constitute an obligation on our part if we are unable to find an alternative booking.

The owners reserve the right to vary these conditions at any time.


Long term out of season lets

The Villa Mia is ideally equipped all year round with double-glazing, central-heating and log-burning fire giving you the chance to enjoy the island at its quietest. All year round temperatures in Crete always significantly exceed those in the UK and virtually never fall to freezing.


Typically, year-round the highest UK daytime temperature on the south coast matches the Cretan night time lowest temperature! The daytime temperatures in Crete are then many degrees higher than that. With only three good falls of snow in coastal regions in the past 50 years our plants continue to flower and you can eat outside most days wearing only a light jacket.


There are many delightful walks in the surrounding area and a profusion of wildflowers all around. The views of the snow-capped White Mountains from the villa are breathtaking.


Flights are available from major UK airports via Athens into Chania or Heraklion year round at reasonable rates.


Car hire can still be arranged, the island is very peaceful, and we can recommend the best tavernas which remain open all year - one within strolling distance. Those wishing to experience the excellent walks which Crete has to offer will benefit from the mild weather in the off season, as in summer it is just TOO hot to walk far!


For one or two-week stays you can see our pricing on our prices section above, but we are prepared to offer discounts on longer-term lets of three or more weeks. This will depend upon the time of year, and you are best dropping us an email or giving us a call to discuss.


For lets of 4 weeks or longer in our off season (typically between November and April) we are offering a special price per 4-week period, for a maximum of 2 guests. This restriction on numbers is due to the second bedroom being out of commission during the off-season as it is used to store outside furniture.


What is included in our long-term rate reflects the needs and preferences of those guests staying longer, who prefer to do their own shopping, cleaning and laundry and choose how much they spend and to what extent they use light and heating.


Accordingly our base rental rate for this is set very low (with 4 weeks costing less than a single week at any other time of the year!) with no scope within that rate to offer "free" what is normally rolled into the cost, other than domestic water.

For clarity, items which are rolled into the short-term rental rates but not included in the costs for long-term guests comprise:

  • Internet and phone package (additional £12/€14 per week)

  • Electricity & heating oil (usage charged at end of stay)

  • Logs (can be arranged at cost if required)

  • Housekeeping services (other than the initial clean)

  • Weekly sheet & towel change

  • Welcome grocery pack


Utility bills would be calculated from meter-readings taken on arrival and departure and then charged locally and we would be happy to arrange for a delivery of logs for you to enable you to snuggle up to a real fire in the evenings.

Please feel free to check out our adverts on these other sites - but remember that all enquiries drop into our own mailbox and we have 100% control over our bookings.  Some of these sites simply pass the enquiries through to us and others, such as VRBO and Airbnb, add on their own commission and take payments via their own portals (and charge us, as well as you, for the privilege!). Whichever route you choose is of course up to you, but you will always get the best deal by dealing with us directly.
