Villa Description
Swimming pool, pool terrace and sunbathing area

The swimming pool and surrounding terraces are very spacious with plenty of shade from trees as well as umbrellas for those who want to take shelter from the sun. However, those who love to laze on a sunbed and soak up the sun will not be disappointed. There is a very generous garden area with lawn where children can play as well as a small children pool. On the raised terrace, there is a dining table and chairs, plus a brick BBQ at the side, which are much needed holiday ingredients.


Within the villa grounds, there is shared parking for Villas Minos, Dominikos and Vincenzos. Parking is also availablle at the nearby Hotel Amirandes if the shared space is full. A gated pathway leads from the parking area to the entrance of Villa Vincenzos with the front door straight ahead.

Living space and kitchen

The high quality is continued inside the villa. In the lounge, there are 2 sofas, a flat screen TV and a glass coffee table. An archway leads to the dining area and kitchen. There is a dining table and chairs as well as a piano which, together with the stone walls, adds some character to this area. The kitchen contrasts with the more traditional design of the house. The clean lines of the glossy white fitted cupboards and the white hob give a contemporary twist to the texture of the stone which features throughout the villa. It is well-equipped with all the modern appliances and has access to the raised terrace and outside dining area.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

On the ground floor, there are 2 bedrooms - a double and twin. Both bedrooms share the facilities of 2 separate shower rooms. From the lounge, an open glass staircase leads directly to a further double bedroom with in-room bath/shower and separate WC. It has access to a small terrace with a traditional sofa and chair where you can enjoy an early morning coffee. This terrace is partially surrounded by large terracotta urns making it an unusual feature. What's more, there is also a mezzanine level with a separate sitting area overlooking the room below.

The fourth bedroom, a twin, is accessed by an exterior staircase and has its own an en suite shower room, mezzanine sitting area and access to a small terrace. The style of the bedrooms reflects the rest of the villa, with soft furnishings in soft neutral tones, in keeping with the stone used throughout the villa.

This villa is registered and licenced by EOT Greek licensing association. This number is: 1039K123K2877101.

Villa Location
Villa Vincenzos is situated on the outskirts of Gouves with a wide selection of shops, tavernas and cafes in the resort centre, 5 minutes' drive away. The local beach is 5 minutes' walk away and Gouves Beach is in the resort centre, 5 minutes' drive away. A little further afield is the busy resort of Hersonissos, 10 minutes' drive away. This is a popular destination for those looking to watch the sun come up but equally, families enjoy the attractions it offers. Our Villas Lefkippos, Minos and Dominikos are on the same road.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There is a mini market within walking distance from the villa with more choice in Gouves centre, 5 minutes' drive away. Alternatively, there are many shopping opportunities in Hersonissos, 10 minutes' drive away. If a market gets your adrenaline flowing, head to Heraklion on Saturday morning where a large open air market will satisfy the most experienced shopper!

Bars and restaurants

There are many tavernas and restaurants in Gouves serving both serving traditional and international cuisine. If you are after a livelier vibe, Hersonissos is the place to be. If you head to Heraklion it is buzzing with fish tavernas overlooking the marina.


The closest beach to the villa is 5 minutes' walk away. This is a mostly undeveloped beach but sunbeds and umbrellas are available for hire in some parts, as well as water sports. The centre of Gouves has several small strips of sandy beach, as does Hersonissos and neighbouring Kokkini Hani to the west. Further afield, in Stalis and Malia, are longer, more populated beaches.

Family fun

Families will always find plenty to do in the area whether it's a trip to Water City or Aqua Plus for a white-knuckle ride down the black hole. The Crete Aquarium is run by the Marine Biology Department of Crete University and is perfect for a family day out. Alternatively, a couple of hours at the Dinosauria Park to 'watching' a dinosaur egg hatch in the 'dinosaur hospital' is good fun for all the family.

Places of interest

It is said that Crete was the birthplace of civilisation when King Minos built the Palace of Knossos, located on the outskirts of Heraklion. For those interested in archaeology, a visit should be planned followed up by exploring the recently reopened archaeology museum where many new artefacts are on display after being unearthed from the archives.


The Crete Golf Club is an 18-hole golf course and located just outside Hersonissos. Booking is advisable as it can get rather busy during the summer months.

Other places of interest

Spinalonga Island is the focus of Victoria Hislop's novel 'The Island'. This small island is situated close to the resort of Elounda. A boat can be taken from Aghios Nikolaos, Elounda or Plaka to go across and see the island as the inhabitants would have.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Labyrinth Park
As the name suggests this is a maze where the objective is to find the centre and the Minotaur, then find the escape route!! Its great fun for all the family and the route is changed regularly. It's a 3D maze with steps and bridges too just to make it more interesting! Along the way visitors will learn more about the myths and legends surrounding the famous Minotaur of Knossos.

There is also a mini golf and cafe, too for less energetic explorers. Children can also have a go in the pottery workshop where Minoan items are reproduced. An eco-garden with aromatic Cretan herbs, fruit trees and vegetable garden are all cultivated to ecological standards.

Villa Vincenzos Customer Reviews

Ali Boksh, 06-Jun-2018

Our Villa Plus Holiday - Villa Vincenzos - Crete What can I say about or Holiday Villa Vincenzos - Crete. Everything was amazing, and I’m not just saying that. For getting all our documents and travel information prior to leaving was all spot on. Soon as we came out of Heraklion airport out transfer (driver) was there waiting for us. The Villa was even better than we could have anticipated, the pictures on the Villa Plus website didn't really do it justice. It was very clean, even had our own welcome pack so there were essentials already there, so we could have a bite to eat and a cuppa on arrival. The Villa was full equipped with TV's in every room (not that you would really watch them), full mod cons. They even had a portable speaker that we could use buy the pool. The location was amazing, for us anyway. Two mins walk from Gouves Resort. There was plenty of local shops you could get essentials from and if you wanted to do a Large Shop Lidl's was a few minutes bus ride away. We went in Hersonissos a 5 min Bus ride away for all the restaurants, bays, shops and night life. We did want to stay in the centre and wanted somewhere a bit quieter and Villa Vincenzos was more than perfect for us. I don't want to go into all the details of what we did but there are so many things to do and on offer, there is a pebble beach a few 100 yards from the villa with water sports and other activities. You can watch the sunset which was beautiful. The people are extremely nice and friendly. The local Island restaurant was truly magnificent, the staff were so great, and the food was some of the best we had on the entire island. We had such a great time and the kids absolutely loved it. Having your own pool and not having to worry about the kids is a god send Takes a lot of stress out of the holiday. The villas can be cleaned daily if you want and towels are changed one a week but that’s more than enough when you have you own washing machine and facilities there.
