The traditionally quaint village of Koutouloufari, located at the mountain's foot but only a short stroll from the beach and bustling Hersonissos, is a haven of tranquility and old-time Crete.
Since our beginning, at the Galaxy Villas we have always strived to offer our guests a warm, original and relaxing vacation experience in this charming location.
We cater to families, couples and the discerning solo traveler anticipating every need with a warm smile and the renowned Cretan hospitality spirit.
The Galaxy Villas is tastefully built in the Greek island-style architecture, utilizing quality natural materials. We ensured that all villas enjoy beautiful, serene views of the ocean, the mountains and our gardens. The hotel's landscape features well groomed but home-style Cretan plants and flowers as well as organically grown olive trees and even our own organic vegetable and fruit garden in the picnic area! Of course we'll share our produce with you!
If you want to experience a relaxing Cretan vacation, in a convenient, quaint location, excellent value for money and warm service with a smile, the Galaxy Villas is the ideal choice!
ENJOY THE TRUE FLAVOR OF CRETE!

Lovely villas in great location within the small village of Koutoulafari. All facilities were perfect and staff were so welcoming and helpful. The supermarket with bakery attached is excellent.
Please note the swimming pool does not have much of a shallow end...
Loved our stay here and will definitively return
My partner and I stayed here in September and had such a lovely time. The staff here are amazing and made our stay perfect. We had a sea view villa as requested, with a beautiful big balcony looking over the pool and the sea. The villa was traditional, cool and comfortable, with a small but useful kitchen...
We even had a terrace right outside our villa where we put sun-beds! The pool was small but clean and there was room on different patios for sunbathing. The gardens were pretty and everything was taken care of well. We LOVED this hotel and LOVED our villa. The area is brilliant, Koutouloufari is a gorgeous rustic village full of great restaurants and little shops. The atmosphere in the evening is really lovely and we really enjoyed having proper traditional Greek food. There is also a convenient mini market opposite the hotel with a bakery, and a much bigger supermarket about ten minutes walk down a different hill. Ten minutes down the hill is Hersonissos, which is a livelier beach town (although not so lively due to Covid) which made a nice change if we wanted drinks on the beach or more shops. There are also little beaches down there where you can sunbathe. For an amazing beach however, take a trip to Chrissi Island. After an hours coach ride and an hour on a boat, you reach the most stunning deserted island I have ever seen. We spent the whole day here and it was our most favourite day in Crete. We highly recommend Galaxy Villas and will definitely be coming back. Thank you Marios for a fabulous stay!!
We stayed in the Galaxy Villas towards the end of August 2020. We arrived late at night and were shown ti our room by one of the staff.
One frustration was that our tour operator said air conditioning was included but the staff member was reluctant to sort this out until the next morning. We found the bedroom got very warm throughout the night so the air con would have been sorted in advance...
We both didn't realise that a safe was an added charge. We didn't bother with this as we kept our belongings with us..
The hotel was generally nice. It is slightly dated and could do with a bit of tarting up, however it did us just fine. We had a sea view room but beware you will have to carry you cases up and down stairs to get there. The view was lovely and worth the extra cost.
We found the pool area busy but not enou gh to prevent us from lying there. I would not like to be at the pool when really busy.
The beds are quite solid and the kitchen basic, but with koutouloufari's amazing restaurants i would only want lunch an breakfast in the villa.
Overall I would return, some frustrations but a nice basic apartment in a fantastic village for greek food lovers
Just back from the galaxy villas, had an amazing time with my two friends, staff were wonderful, dying to go back next May, mario, Sophia, apolotis and the lovely young girl who cleaned our room, they were all so lovely and helpful, thanks for a great holiday 😘
This is a lovely place to stay. Under very strange conditions this year, Mario, Apostolis and Sophia make the stay. They are all very friendly, helpful and full of fun...
They will do anything for you. Cant praise them enough.
