2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Tsivaras, Chania Prefecture, Crete
This villa is unique in Crete, and has been decorated by Fabio Zardi, an Italian interior designer. It is located on the top of the hill of Fysaeri, less than 15 minutes from the beach, with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Souda. On the other side are the mountains, which are covered with snow until the end of May. The location is perfect for those who want to go to the beach or hiking in the countryside.

The villa consists of two floors:

- the ground floor has a patio, a big living room with fireplace, a completely equipped kitchen, a studio, a bedroom and a bathroom with bathtub, a big terrace; the living room is decorated with a precious neo-gothic library, richly inlaid and with beautiful spiral columns. A Murano glass chandelier illuminates the central table, around which are placed in walnut chairs upholstered in silk velvet. Tw...

About the neighbourhood
The villa is a fantastic example of the typical Venetian mansion of the Cretan tradition. The location is perfect for a stay in the area of Chania, since the house is just 15 minutes far from the town. The villages of Vamos and Kalives, 5 minutes far from the villa, have restaurants, taverns, car rentals, shops, minimarket, supermaket and all services.

My recommendations are based on my experience and local knowledge.

Best local café/coffee: There are traditional cafè (kafenion) in Vamos and Kalives, as well as in other small villages around.
Best breakfast eateries: We can recommend places on request.
Best lunch eateries: We can recommend places on request.
Best night restaurants: We can recommend places on request.
Best paid activities: The beach of Kalives, as wel...

How to get there
Ryanair has seasonal low-cost flights to Chania airport from the end of March until October.
If you come by plane, you may rent online a car and ask to pick it up at the airport; same if you come by boat.


From the National Road, exit at Kalyves - Vamos, then follow the road in the direction of Kalyves.
Follow the panels to Tsivaràs - Vamos. After Tsivaras, and before the panel of Vamos, you will find blue arrows to Doulianà and Gavalochori (to the left): do not turn to the left, but on the opposite side. There is a path going up to the Fyssaeri hill. The house is on the top.
