It's ideal for quite summer and winter holidays for couples. The fact that it is near the cosmopolitan city, makes it convenient. A compeletely equiped, sunny appartment, which is a part of a bigger house built in a private area of four acres, offers joy, peace and quite, as well as a wonderful view. Check out our winter prices! OUR PLACE It is a studio of 50 sqm, fully equipped in a modern style, yet in direct contact and harmony with the nature around it. Situated on the eastern side of a larger home where our family lives, on a private plot of 4 acres full of olive trees and pine trees, shrubs, herbs and wildflowers of local flora and with a splendid view of the Souda bay and the mountain range of the White Mountains.All around, the tweets of birds and the hum of cicadas is heard. To get to the apartment, you pass through a private 70-meter alley that leads to a large park (shared), cross the courtyard of the central residence from where a small stone staircase leads to the entrance. The appartment is dominated by the element of natural wood. Basic furniture were designed and constructed with love and taste in hand, while some vintage pieces of special beauty are distinguished, such as the desk and two mirrors of the bedroom and bathroom, the '40 radio and the old sewing machine.The apartment is designed for people who love nature as it is located next to the rock garden, which is a small botanical garden and is shaded by large pine trees. Already in the entrance of the apartment awaits visitors a 'rural' corner, with gardening tools for those who want to spend some time soaking in the garden and learning from the owner the uses and qualities of Cretan herbs. A traditional Cretan treat is welcoming you while the home is equipped with everything that includes a full house as well as everything you may need for your personal care. A full kitchen with filter and espresso coffee makers, a desk to touch your laptop, a comfortable living room and a double handmade bed, dominating the highest level of the house, from which one can enjoy day and night the stunning sea and mountain view from the large windows.The view is even better than the balcony of the apartment, which 'sees' also towards the rock garden and the small pine forest. From here, you can watch the sun's most beautiful sunrise: You'll have to sucrifice your lie-in, but it will be unforgettable! We named our property 'Garden of Zephyros' because it accepts almost all year the favorable influence of the winds, sometimes strong and sometimes gentle and relaxing. The apartment is a perfect seasonal observatory, located 300 meters above sea level. VISITORS ACCESS There is a shared parking lot and a big front yard. You can explore the farm with olive trees, meet Cretan flora (and fauna) in our rock garden and learn from us about Cretan herbs and their properties or, you can relax under the pines trees, joining an incredible atmosphere. ACTIVITIES After the necessary discussion, we can provide you access to several services like motorbikes and motorcycles renting and private sailboat cruises around Balo's and Gramvusa's beautiful waters. Furthermore, in our grounds we can organise healing massage sessions and private yoga lessons by local professionals, as well as creative employment workshops with upcycling for children from 5-12 y.o. Finally, we can also organise musical instrument workshops, using reused and natural materials (ex. branches, rocks, plastic bottles etc.) for parents and educators. More

About the neighbourhood
Our neighborhood consists of houses which are inhabitted by families, in areas of 4 acres full of olive trees. The place where we are located (Akrotiri), is well known for its exceptional climate, its magical beaches, the change of sceneries,and some of the most important religious monuments of Crete.
Getting around
Our neighborhood is connected by bus to the city of Chania, which leaves every hour and the stop is a 10 minute walk from our house but we strongly recomend you to rent a car if you want to gain time for sight seeing. We are connected to Chania, Souda port, the airport and the highway that communicates with the rest of Crete, by two roads 5-7 km. The airport is from here about 10 minutes, Chania 15-20 minutes depending on the traffic and Souda port about 15 minutes.
