Holiday Rental House
A perfect combination of countryside living while near everything—shopping, nature, culture, plus easy access to excursions. In this true neighborhood home, one can experience life as a local with the privacy that few homes can offer. This unique combination of a quiet retreat and its close proximity to the city of Chania offers the best of both worlds. The house was built on our large family plot of several acres, on the hillside overlooking the olive groves and the sea below. The location of the home is ideal, because it is an a sparsely populated area and therefore the home offers privacy and quiet while being near all the practicalities of daily life (supermarkets, shops, bus stop, gas stations, cafes, restaurants, all within minutes, and only 1km from the general hospital), nature (b...A perfect combination of countryside living while near everything—shopping, nature, culture, plus easy access to excursions. In this true neighborhood home, one can experience life as a local with the privacy that few homes can offer. This unique combination of a quiet retreat and its close proximity to the city of Chania offers the best of both worlds. The house was built on our large family plot of several acres, on the hillside overlooking the olive groves and the sea below. The location of the home is ideal, because it is an a sparsely populated area and therefore the home offers privacy and quiet while being near all the practicalities of daily life (supermarkets, shops, bus stop, gas stations, cafes, restaurants, all within minutes, and only 1km from the general hospital), nature (beaches and park minutes away!), and culture (the Old Town of Chania). Just two kilometers from the center of Chania, with its museums and charming preserved Old Town and the Venetian harbor, and one kilometer from the National Road, where one can easily take off for excursions into the White Mountains, the one and only Samaria Gorge, the beaches of southern Crete, as well as Balos beach on the northwestern tip of Gramvousa, one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean. The home, positioned in a way to make use ideal use of light and shade, keeping the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, is of a country-modern style, offering modern comforts with a nod to country living. Using traditional local materials of stone and wood, the home is decorated with simple but quality furnishings, while the plentiful windows frame countryside views wherever the eye may rest. The fully equipped kitchen is spacious and features a large dining table, stove, oven, microwave, full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, coffeemaker, water boiler, and all the cooking utensils one would need for a home-cooked meal. Each of the three spacious bedrooms is equally tranquil, all letting out to the gardens. The largest bedroom of the three features a loft with a second double bed. The gardens of the home offer a whole other world. With two gardens of 400 m2 full of flowers and trees, there are many spots to sit and enjoy quiet and nature during the day. One can enjoy meals on the veranda, at the large wooden dining table, overlooking the olive groves and the sea, or retreat to a secluded spot in the garden to read a book, practice yoga, or drink a glass of wine while tending the barbecue.

About the neighbourhood
The house is located in an ideal locals neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. Chania’s Golden Beach, which can be seen from the house, is a quick bike ride and a short hike down the hill, for those who don’t want to use the car, will take one right down to the beach. Just beyond there are several other coves and a green pine forest for exploring and hiking, as well as a children’s playground. A treat for the children is the nearby Golden Fun Park, with games, bowling, and ping pong, while parents can relax with their coffee. Chania’s Old Town is 15 minutes away by car, and also serviced by bus within walking distance down the hillside to the main road.
