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!”

“The Violetta apartment was beautiful. We were there for two and had more than enough space - with the seating in the courtyard, as well as the outdoor shower, for us the absolute highlight. In addition, the kitchen was very well equipped and the air conditioning made a restful sleep on the warm nights possible. The bathroom is small, but quite adequate - especially if you decide to take a shower outside .. In addition, the apartment was very very clean and tidy. The towels and bedding were changed every 4 days and the garbage taken away. Stratos welcomed us very friendly. communicating with him was very straightforward, we were able to inform him relatively spontaneously about our arrival. He showed us the apartment, drew all his highlights and insider tips of the island for us on a map and gave valuable tips on beaches, taverns, supermarkets etc. He also gave us a bottle of homemade raki and had fresh fruit, water and coffee provided ( Spices such as salt, pepper and eg fresh oregano from the garden are also available). About the time of the towels and bedding changes we were always uncomplicated questioned / informed by message - again Stratos was totally flexible. On the last evening he visited us again and inquired how the island and his tips etc. would have pleased us. We would like to thank Stratos for the great accommodation and its caring but unobtrusive way. We can absolutely recommend the apartment. Otherwise, it is still good to know: - Parking either directly in front of the door or very high 25m away - small but well-stocked supermarket 300m away (with delicious coffee) - easy access to Crete's main street (E75) - Very tasty taverns in the immediate vicinity (The Best: Kaliviani Café Taverna, next to the Violetta Studios) - Air conditioning with remote control and sleeptimer - 1 parasol available in accommodation (may be taken to the beach) - The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, chopping board, colander, espresso pots, all crockery and cutlery - The next opportunity to jump in the cool water is about 500m away - Without a rental car it gets difficult”
A 500 year old Venetian Olive Mill completely renovated in 2017. The history of the house, starts during the latter part of the Venetian occupation of Crete. This beautiful medieval Venetian Olive Mill (with rocks being turned by horses, the olive fruit was being crushed and olive oil was produced). The Mill (factory or Fabrica) was extended during the Ottoman occupation (1669 to 1898) and was used for olive oil production.
“The Trigono house was unique. Great architecture that combines the old traditional style with modern elements. Very stylish and comfortably furnished. The beds are very comfortable and the whole house very clean and well equipped Each room has its own bathroom and possibilities to sit outside. You could relax on one of the terraces or balconies with sea views. The village Kaliviani has a beautiful original character and you feel after a short time like a villager. The people are so warm and hospitable and the taverns are preparing delicious food. We all enjoyed it very much and we return with wonderful memories and a lot of rest and a lot of sun in our hearts. Many thanks to Kostas for the lovely reception, everything worked out great.”
