COME AND RELAX; YOU’LL FIND PEACE AND SPACE! ENJOY WEST CRETE IN STYLE

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Chania - Villa Catani

6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, can sleep 8-15

Its award winner architect has come up with a design, for a luxury, yet easy-going, country home that combines traditional elements, (like wide stone walls, exposed wooden beams), with modern ones (like folding glass panels, interior light wells, lookout decks at each floor) to offer residents the sense of being secure and cozy, while open to enjoy the panoramic views and the docile Cretan climate – the best there is!

Standing on its 4000 m2 of olive groves, with 12 x 3,5 m private pool, the villa is located at an idyllic countryside spot of Nea Kydonia, from where it’s just 10 min drive to Hania town, and 800 m to Kalamaki’ sea, with many sandy beaches nearby.

What previous guests have loved most was the feeling of spaciousness, the communication and free lines of vision that the light wells allowed, the opportunity to enjoy being outdoors at the patio, the dinning terrace and the pool, the décor’s equilibrium of earthly colours and materials with aluminium and modern fitting.

Accessible features:: Ramp entrance to main floor.

Wide entrance doors, all doors at least 75 cm wide, most wider.

Bedrooms with room to manoeuvre.

Twin beds can be made 45 cm high.

A cargo lift (80cm X 110cm) gives access to all floors, but it's permitted to be used only to facilitate guests with mobility problems at theirs or their guardians' responsibility.

There are two accessible toilettes: a roll-in shower at the ground floor and a bathroom at the main floor. Both have 45cm high toilettes, accessible sinks, gripping bars, adjustable shower-height. The bathroom is accessed by a ramp; its bath-lid is 53cm high and it has a portable bath seat.

All entrances are level but the one to the upper deck.

NOTE 1: There is a step to the upper deck, and the portable ramp stops door from being closed

NOTE 2: There isn't yet a pool-hoist

Best villa we've ever rented

Best villa we've ever rented
  • 5 out of 5
A truly impressive house, inside and out. We were a party of 9 and there was plenty of space for all, with beds to spare. The villa is superbly equipped, particularly for wonderful meals in, and the location is perfect--the sea and olive groves with few other houses in view, yet just two minutes from the National Road and easy access to Chania and other spots on the island. The pictures here and on the owner's site are just a taste of the pleasures of this house. I heartily recommend this property for any group of up to 12-14 people and commend Katerina and Kostas for their terrific service and helpfulness to their guests.

What a great place!!

  • 5 out of 5
This villa exceeded my expectations. It was an interesting, fun, and yet very practical and friendly place to stay. Our group had a great time exploring the surrounding areas, or just relaxing by the pool. The facilities were fantastic, and I truely think there was nothing extra we needed or would have liked, except that is to have stayed longer. Thank you Katerina and Kostas!!

just perfect!!

  • 5 out of 5
We were in this wonderful villa in april 2009, with a group of 11 people.The villa is great!! Enough room for all of us,lovely bedrooms/bathrooms and a very nice good kitchen!
The outdoor living space is wonderful, with a great view and a lot of space.There is also enough space to park a few cars. We even had 2 cars and 5 motorbikes and no problem at all to park them.The garden is big and the swimming pool is spacious enough for everyone.We had some great BBQ evenings on one of the terraces. Upstairs there are 2 washing machine,s which can be very handy!
Katerina and Kostas are very friendly and helpful.
I can recommend this villa to everyone as very nice and clean (twice a week people came to clean the villa). Also for children there is enough to do (table tennis, games, dvd player,pool)
To get to the beach you don,t even need a car,only to reach the big supermarkets you have to drive about 10 minutes.
This villa is the perfect place to stay for large groups of people!!!

even better in reality

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time at Villa Catani in october 2008. The house itself is very spacious, even for the 14 people our group consisted of. It is very childfriendly. It has everything you want for a week or two of a relaxing holiday: Great view, far away from noisy roads, yet very close to Chania and /or beaches. The interiour is modern and cosy at the same time, with many nice details. The space around the house is great, as is the swimming pool.

The only thing you have to keep in mind is that since the house consists mostly of wood, and the architecture is 'open', it can be noisy. If you are with a group with different wishes considering bed time etc, this is thing you need to think about.

Mostly a rental house is a bit less great when you see it for the first time, compared to the internet pictures. Villa Catani was even better than we expected. We will definitely come back!

Comments from Owner Guestbook

June 2004:
“What a wonderful time we had on our week vacation to Crete.
The home was wonderful. There were 10 of us + we never felt crowded.
We loved the patio areas. We had coffee in the patio in the morning + ate dinner in the evening.
The sunsets were beautiful, the view was spectacular, and the weather was perfect.
We went to the beach during the day + explored the city in the afternoon.
Excellent shopping + sightseeing near the waterfront in the old town.
The kids loved the race car track.
Katerina + Kostas were wonderful, kind, helpful ”

“Great villa so relaxing staying by the pool.
Big beach enjoyed very much by us all – particularly the kids.
Knossos extremely interesting – but a very long drive!
Good bars + restaurants all over the place”

I would call it Villa Paradise....

  • 5 out of 5
We've rented this villa for 10 days from 13th to 23rd of July. We've been in contact directly with the owners and they are very nice persons and they have a very nice family and we invited them in their house (funny isn't it?), for a half italian half greek dinner...very nice evening indeed. The villa is more than we expected from the pictures and is very comfortable and well organized. We were 3 couples with 2 kids each and was perfect fitting for us; the swimming pool and all the balconies were put in safe with plastic fences and we were very relaxed during our stay (even though I'd suggest to always keep an eye on kids expecially if they are around 4y). I'd suggest to rent a car or a scooter if you prefer and if you don't have children but you should consider that crete is a very big island and it could happen to drive for more than 200 km per day so maybe the car is a better option (the owner suggested us a local company and we have saved 100 euro comparing to international companies for the same kind of cars!). There is a big table (with also an extension) capable of more than 15 seats and we always had dinner in the balcony out of the kitchen, the most convenient but we had a lot of drinks in the higher patio looking at the wonderful view expecially during sunsets.
I don't have much more to add rather than I'd call this house Villa Paradise instead of Villa Catani. :-)

The villa is situated on its own, gently slopping, one-acre land, tucked among olive trees with open west view towards a low hill with olive and grapes groves and the north coast.

Although only 5 km away from Hania town it offers an away from it all peace, within walking distance from Kalamaki small harbor and its fishing boats and small beach. From there, one can walk east to Kalamaki resort which boasts a number of sheltered sandy beaches, mini markets, as well as seafront tavernas along the gently shelving beach. Stalos is 2 km west with its long sandy beach and numerous tourists’ shops and eating-places.

You can use the villa as a base to explore ancient, rural and modern Crete, or simply to relax by the pool and allow the place’s magic, restore your energy.

But then it’s only 10 min drive to Hania, (a town that stays alive even in winter), where you can enjoy a rich night life, good food, shops and market places.

Other Activities: waterpark with waterslides, mini golf, kids race cars
