Overview

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

6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, can sleep 12+

Greek Tourism Authorization No.MHTE 1042K10003000801

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 Chania 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 bathrooms at the main floor and ground floor, 45cm high toilette, accessible sink, gripping bar, 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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”

Best villa we've ever rented

  • 5 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.

Perfect place for family vacation in Crete!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the privilege to stay at the wonderful Villa Catani for a week (Oct. 2014).

We were 6 adults this time but sure enough this large and fully equipped villa is suitable for much larger groups.

The villa is beautiful from inside and out and Katerina, with her great talent, decorated it with her impressive works of art.

The location was ideal for visiting Chania and the surrounding. We even drove to the amazing beaches of Balus and Elafonisi in charming relatively short one day trips (about an hour and a half drive from the villa).

To conclude, the vacation was just amazing much because of the location and our most wonderful hosts Kostas & Katerina !!!!

Wonderful villa for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 families including 6 adults, and 8 kids. This villa was FANTASTIC for us! It's set up perfectly for multiple families to enjoy each other but have some space if needed. Kosta's and Katerina were helpful hosts, and even gave us info for a car rental (which saved us money), as well as info about the area, and recommendations. I cannot say enough about what a great experience it all was. I highly recommend this villa!

Wonderfull house to spend your holiday

  • 4 of 5

The description regarding the location is worst of the reality. The house is really big, well mantained and well furnished. We were 11 guest from 16 to 54 year aged and all of us agree the this place can be reccommend to our friend as the rigth place to go on holiday. We are Italians and so we have used the kitchen and the big barbeque to cook fish and meat like we use to do in Rome. The restaurants where we have eaten were been really good and the relation between cost and quality was heigth .

What a great place!!

  • 5 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 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!!!

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 Chania 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 Chania Old Venatian Town, (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
