About Christine Warwick
John and Christine Warwick. He is British, she is French/Italian. We both fell in love with Crete, the island, the weather, the locals and their Cretan hospitality. We had visited many other European Countries but never felt as comfortable and at ease as in this part of Western Crete. We had been looking for somewhere to buy and to share with our friends and extended family so when the opportunity arose we had no hesitation. We want our visitors to share the enjoyment we have experienced in this part of Crete and will endeavor to give you as much information as possible to ensure you a wonderful holiday.
Christine Warwick purchased this apartment in 2008
Why Christine Warwick chose Kalives
Regarding Crete, I fell in love with the island the first time I came to visit and this triggered our desire to buy a property there. I am myself Italian and French and Crete reminded me of both Cote d'Azur and Toscana before these places were spoiled to some extent by overbuilding and mass tourism. Western Crete is considered the most traditional part of Crete. We are at easy reach from the wonderful old Venetian town of Chania (La Canea) as well as Rethymno with its Turkish legacy. Our apartment is modern and well equipped and YES right on the beach with direct access to the beach through the 16 apartment complex. Taverna 2 minutes away, Supermarket opposite. Location, location, location !
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment benefits from a sea view and an access from the communal area direct to the beach. This means no road to cross to get your feet into the sand and you will almost feel like you are in a private beach with golden and fine sand. You will enjoy having your meal on the balcony with view on the sea unless you prefer to indulge yourself in one of the many local taverns within walking distance. Indeed you don’t need a car to stay in our apartment since all the amenities are within easy reach and yet the property is still remote enough from the core of Kalyves to ensure a peaceful stay. The bus stop to Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion is near by. Chania is just at 20 minutes and should you want to have a night out in its old buoyant Venetian harbour, a taxi is easily organised.
