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.

The sea was so much closer than we thought at to wake up to that every morning watching the sunrise while sitting on the balcony was like a dream. The owners are unbelievably friendly and welcoming making our stay that much more comfortable and amazing. We were greeted on arrival by Mr Xanthoudakis who provided us with some raki and wine and with some grapes and food in the fridge, even though we had just taken a rushed detour to a local shop to make sure we had everything! The apartment is a 10 mins drive away from Kissamos where there are plenty of markets and cafés, along with shops. Apartment was cleaned roughly every 3 days by Mrs Xanthoudakis and her group of cleaners who do an absolutely fantastic job and even left us anow amazing homemade berry pie one time! We will definitely have this apartment for our annual getaway holiday for the foreseeable future!

The villa's contemporary design is tasteful and charming and has been well thought out with balconies and seating areas offering breathtaking views down to the sea over the surrounding olive groves or up to the imposing backdrop of the White Mountains . Shade is provided for those who need to hide from the Cretan sun while also allowing plenty of access to the sun worshippers by the pool. It would be possible to spend a tranquil holiday up here on the hill top surveying the delightful rural surroundings, relying on local tavernas to supply evening meals,without venturing any further afield. Yet an easy and pleasant walk along the rural road through olive groves and fruit trees will take one to the buzz of Platanias where restaurants , bars and all sorts of tourist amenities await those who might like to dance the night away .And Chania itself with culture, good restaurants and some serious shopping is only a 15 minute drive away .A great stay - we will definitely be back !

Diesmal zum Sommerausklang Ende September/Anfang Oktober. Wir waren wieder begeistert: das Haus und die ruhige Lage im wunderbaren Westen Kretas, dazu Sonnenschein und noch warmes Meer (24 °), mehr brauchen wir nicht zur Erholung. Das Haus war tadellos, z.T. mit neuen Möbeln es fehlte uns einfach nichts. Dazu der 2 x wöchentliche Reinigungsdienst, sowie die Möglichkeit Essen ins Haus/bzw. auf die Terrasse bestellen zu können. Die Sonnenuntergänge auf der Terrasse und der grandiose Sternenhimmel waren beeindruckend. Wir hatten diesmal Rennräder organisiert, mit denen wir großartige Touren in der Umgebung machen konnten. Obwohl zu dieser Zeit alle Häuser belegt waren, fühlten wir uns ganz alleine in dieser Umgebung, es war immer sehr ruhig. Die Betreuung durch Niko, den Manager funktionierte von Anfang an bestens, e-mails werden sofort beantwortet, Wünsche wenn möglich erfüllt. Uneingeschränkte 5 Sterne!
