Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Chania - Fenareti's House

Cottage with 2 bedrooms and 2 independent bathrooms, near the Kalives beach

Fenareti's house is located in a small village of Apokoronas in Chania. The calmness of the village in combination with the beauty of the nature make the accommodation really pleasing. The house has a special architectural style as it is built amphitheatrically on the roots of a mountain and its spaces are shaped in different levels. The main construction materials of the house are wood and stones, offering a unique sense of relaxation and tranquillity.

At its about 130 sqm Fenareti offers a big sitting room with fireplace and two stone sofas, a full comforted kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. At the lower level of the house is located the second bedroom with beautiful view at the sea and the village's champaign.

Fenareti's house is available all year round. The property is ideal for couples, families and groups of friends who look for something special and want to avoid clamorousness towns and live the traditional way of life at a traditional Crete village.

Apokoronas brief history: Apokoronas is one of the five provinces of Chania Prefecture, in its Northeastern part. During the ancient times the word 'Apokoronas' is not at all mentioned. The only thing names that are mentioned are those of the villages of the province. During the Byzantine Era there is a reference of the name of the region as a village. As a Province it is referred to the Venetian Occupation of Crete, however, without knowing the exact limits of the area at that time. As a toponymy it is mentioned as 'Apikonna' in the Convention between the Byzantine General Vatatzis and the Duke of Crete Ioustiani in 1236.

Neo Horio and nearby: Neo Horio, 24km from the town of Chania, rests comfortably against the side of a hill overlooking a lush valley of olive and orange groves. Its name means 'New village', and that because it was built in the ruins of a village destroyed by invaders of Crete. In the center of the village several 'kafeneia' (coffee shops) are located who serve coffes, refreshments and drinks, and from the evening the bake the most famous souvlaki in Crete!

From the top of Neo Horio, if you look northwards over the valley you can see the azure waters of the Mediterranean, about 4km away, glimmering under the glory of the sun. There lies the coastal village of Kalyves. However, nestled in the valley between Kalyves and Neo Horio lies the village of Armenous with its famous underground springs of water, and its traditional restaurants

Fenareti's House-How to get there: The house's name was taken by the landlady's name, Fenareti. Also, famous Greek philosopher Sokrates' mother name was Fenareti. Fenareti’ s House constructed in 1780, at the centre of Neo Horio. It was built in three levels according to the slope of the ground. In 1993 it was refurbished by the present owners with respect to the landscape and the environment. New owner’s ambition was to create a house that would offer a comfortable accommodation to every demanding visitor.How to get there?

What a lovely place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
This is the second time we have stayed here.The house is ideally situated for Kalives,Chania and of course Nio Chorio for a meal and drinks.The owners are very friendly and always at the end of a telephone if needed.We have had a great time here and would thoroughly recommend it.Always left on the table on arrival is local olive oil,raki,fruit etc.Just sitting on the terrace overlooking the village and out to sea,what a way to relax.

excellent holidays

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons profité de cette maison pendant deux semaines au cours de l'été, en famille avec deux enfants de 8 et 11 ans. La situation est idéale, sans promiscuité, très facile d'accès de la route nationale pour aller à Chania ou Rethymnon, ou Heraklion (environ 2h00), très proche des plages, tout en étant dans l'arrière pays préservé des foules d'estivants, aux taverna aux prix très raisonnables, et dans un village aux commerçants très accueillants. Il existe par ailleurs de nombreux sites intéressants à proximité (Akrotiri et ses monastères, gorges de Theriso, vieux village de Vamos, site antique d'Aptera). La maison est vaste, parfaitement équipée, très agréable, parfaite pour une famille avec enfants. La location était très propre, et les draps et serviettes étaient changés deux fois par semaine. La terrasse ombragée, en surplomb du village, a une superbe vue, tant sur la vallée de champs d'oliviers, les montagnes, le fort d'Aptera que la mer en fond ! Les photos présentées ici ne la représentent pas au mieux, et c'est dommage. Une mention spéciale pour un des chats du village dont la présence a fait la joie de nos enfants. Tout ceci ne serait rien sans la gentillesse des propriétaires, qui nous ont gracieusement offert de l'huile d'olive, du vin et des oranges bio de leur production. Attentifs à nous retirer tout souci, ils nous ont efficacement dépannés lorsque nous avons rencontré un problème plusieurs jours après notre départ (oubli de clés dans la maison). Après plusieurs séjours différents en Crète par le passé, c'est sans aucune hésitation que nous reviendrions à cette adresse, et nous pensons la conseiller à des amis prochainement.

Excellent holidays in Fenareti' s House

Excellent holidays in Fenareti' s House
  • 5 out of 5
At first I should mention that all information given through internet, written in the house or verbaly by the owners was accurate and very helpful. The location and house' s facilities were perfect and ideal for an unforgetable trip to Crete. The accommodation was clean and tidy and also well-maintained (plus nicely furnished and full equipped). The owners provided us excellent service: very helpful with their instructions finding the house, they picked us up from the village center, they offered us seasonal fruits and wine and they change the linen without made us feel that an "invader" disrupted our peace.
I have already recommended Fenareti' s House to my friends and relatives and my brother has made a reservation for next May!
I find Fenareti' s House ideal for nature-lovers and people who enjoy walking and cycling. Someone can find nice local taverns (serving souvlaki in Neo Chorio) and restaurants (Cretan cusine) in Neo Chorio and the surroundings. Do not miss visit the nearby villages: Armeni (with natural springs), Vamos (with the renewal settlement), Kokkino Chorio (with a family industry of perfect blow-made glass items) etc!

Excellent accomodation and hosts

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Fenareti's house over Christmas 2009-2010. The listing description and photos are accurate, and the property was clean and well maintained. Our hosts were very helpful and generous in their provision of local produce, firewood and assistance. We were lucky with the weather for that time of year and enjoyed many sunny, quiet days on the patio, with its beautiful view. The house is close to coastal towns and the national highway, and it was easy to visit Chania and Rethymnon on day trips. The nights were cool and the house was chilly, but there was a good fireplace and ample supplies of dry firewood. The house would benefit from central heating for the bedrooms in the winter months. And it would be helpful to have internet access and a small music system. We would recommend this property for a quiet stay in a beautiful area of western Crete.

Ideales Haus zum Entspannen

  • 5 out of 5
Eine wunderbare Lage mitten im Dorf mit seinen liebenswerten Bewohnern. Der Blick von der Terrasse ist noch schöner als auf den Fotos, und die Vermieterin betreute uns wie persönliche Gäste. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und lässt kaum Wünsche offen - es liegt allerdings am Hang und birgt auch innen mehrere Ebenen , zu denen jeweils Stufen führen.
Ausgangspunkt für viele Ausflüge und die Nähe zu den interessanten Orten dieser Region sowie zum Meer tragen ebenfalls zu den verdienten Sternen bei. Zu Fuß ist man in max. 5 Minuten im Ortskern mit mehreren Cafés und 2 Gasthäusern, in denen man auch - deftig - essen kann. In der Umgebung liegen mehrere Restaurants - mit dem Auto erreichbar.
Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
