Places to Visit Around Herethiana, Crete

Kissamos Chania is a beautiful town about 42km west of Chania. It is the capital of the county but still has only about 3,000 inhabitants. Unspoilt by tourism, the town is on the site of an earlier city which was the port of Polyrenia, the oldest Dorian city of Crete. Parts of the old city walls, built by the Venetians can still be seen and it once had a fortress, hence its name Kastelli Kissamou. The harbour is the place to find boats and ferries which sail to other islands such as Gythion and Kythira. The archaeological sites of Polyrenia and Falassarna, the gorges of Topolia and Pirate Isles all make excellent days out from your Herethiana holiday home.

Very spacious and comfortable and beautiful outdoors space. The views are very special and The outside terrace is fantastic for entertaining, eating outside, relaxing, reading, or just chilling out. Everything you need is in the villa, and we found the owners were extremely helpful. Local beaches are sandy, and sea is clear you can walk out for awhile before it gets too deep - great for kids. There are some really good local Taverna's/restaurants in Kissamos, and Platenos (about 10 mins drive away) so car hire is essential. Local bakers and mini market 5 mins away in car. The Villa is located in an unspoilt area of Crete - we would really love to return here again next year. It was a wonderful place to stay in a great location and we would highly recommend it.

It was perfect! We had the sea view apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well sized and had a wonderful sea view. Xristina and her husband were available if needed and often dropped products from their farm. The location of the apartment was ideal and we will definitely be staying here again. This holiday was our 7th year visiting Crete and we found the location and apartment perfect for what we wanted from the holiday. Excellent holiday, excellent apartment, excellent location.

                                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                                              The property is very well presented and the owners are very hospitable and kind, providing us with a home cooked traditional Cretan meal on arrival and making themselves available for anything we may have needed throughout the stay. In addition, basic provisions were left for us including tea, coffee, water, bread and fresh fruit and vegetables from the owners garden. The house is well stocked with plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment etc. Even cleaning products such as dishwasher tablets were provided Everything was very clean on arrival with an additional clean mid week. The house is situated on a hillside about 10 minutes walk from the town of Kissamos, which has plenty of shops and tavernas/restaurants etc. The owner left us a guide to help us with local attractions and places to eat which was really useful. We had some lovely meals in the local tavernas but our favourite place to eat was at the small fishermans harbor about 3 kilometers from the house. One point to note is that if you would like to visit the beautiful beach at Balos, be prepared to a good long trek. The car park is usually full in tourist season which means you have to park way back on the roadside (very narrow in places) and then the walk to the beach (from the car park) is about 3 kilometers over very rocky, uneaven terrain - coming back up again is much worse than walking down. All in our party are fit and well but even we found it heavy going. If you have any mobility difficulties, my advice would be to take the ferry from Kissamos instead. A lovely holiday and I would not hesitate in recommending this property.
