it is a cave from natural rock that at previous years was used as a house by the family in the beginning, and as storage of agricultural products much later. In 2007 after careful renovation and rebuilt, it became a luxurious studio of 60 square metres that can host up to two adults and two children. The studio is complete with dining room, kitchenette, TV and AC. A beautiful balcony reveals the view of Kissamos bay and the mountains that lie in the background. The apartment lies in the village Kaliviani and has a stunning view of Kissamos bay. It is very close to the unique lagoon of Balos and the famous beach of Falasarna. It is located 45 kilometres away from Chania and 55 kilometres from the airport. Kissamos port is just a five minute drive and Falasarna 10 minutes away. Very close to the villa are many smaller beaches. The towels are changed 2 times in a week and we offer upon arrival a welcome basket with local products. Hiring a car is recommended.
“We spent five wonderful nights at Nantia and Kosto's beautiful home and we would have stayed longer! It is set in a stunning location, quiet and peaceful and a minute's walk to some excellent restaurants in a lovely village where people are so friendly. It has to be one of the nicest Airbnbs we have stayed in, so stylish and beautifully decorated, everything you could wish for and many thoughtful touches such as delicious pies left in the oven upon our arrival, wine, honey and all the basic essentials. The bed was so comfortable and how nice to waken to the sounds of nature, the tinkling of goat bells!, and the view from the double doors. Nantia and Kosto were so helpful and informative and gave great tips which formed the basis of our daily trips. It is clear from the comments in their visitor book that they are special people who take pride in what they do. It is the kind of place you'd want to be to truly appreciate life and we will most definitely be planning a return visit ! Efharisto Nantia and Kosto!”
Villa Askyfou Villa Askyfou is located in village Goni Askyfou, at an altitude of 780m. It is situated 45km away from Chania and 42km away from Rethymno city, on a plateau surrounded by Lefka Ori "White Mountains". The villa is an old house renovated with natural material, mainly stone and cypress wood, and on the basis of its history and original form. It is furnished with collectible pieces, some of which date from the previous century. .
“As others have said, due to steep steps outside and stairs indoors the house is not suitable for the very young and the elderly, and if you want a gleaming fitted kitchen and walk-in showers, this is not the place for you. But the pool has the most wonderful views of the White Mountains - a unique swimming experience - and the building is a genuine Cretan farmhouse. Being up in the mountains, the temperatures ranged between 25C and 30C during the day - perfect - and it was cool in the evening, so easy to sleep. Jannis was a most attentive host, and we loved getting cheese made in the village and local honey to enjoy on the patio to the sound of tinkling goat bells. Chania was beautiful - well worth a visit, as was Rethimnon, and Jannis’ restaurant recommendations were excellent. All in all a great holiday.”
Seemore Seaside Studios Selene is a beautiful mediterranean feeling seaview appartment in the Koum Kapi district, a minute walk from the majestic Old Town of Chania.
“Wonderful stay, view is astonishing, flat is just as described. Simos is a super host, he provided a heater as discussed and even help us to find a car with driver for a 1 day excursion. We realized that there was no microwave nor fourniture for cooking but there are so many places to eat near the flat that you don't need actually to cook at home. Besides, Simos owns a bar downstairs which is so cool and alive, you can have breakfast, lunch, teatime, dinner and night cocktail everyday! Take care Simos!”
