Vrachos Villas

Whenever I am in Crete, meeting Manos, my dear Greek guide, is standard on my to do list. His latest discovery is Vrachos Villas in the province of Agios Vasilios Lampis. This paradise is situated on top of one of the hills that surround the town of Agia Paraskevi. On my first morning, I start the day with a long, brisk walk in the area. The birds slowly start to wake up and I take my time to listen to their cheerful chirping. I see the first sunrays break through, enjoy the view and sniff the scent of nature. A couple of hours later I return to my villa, which I also think is beautiful. The house is built with cut stones, hence the name Vrachos, which means stone or rock, as I know from Manos. Tired but satisfied I settle down on my sun-drenched terrace. I'm not planning too many things for this afternoon...

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
