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.

“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”

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 find ! This must be one of the best villas in Crete. It is spacious and well suited for our family party of 13 adults. It's slightly unusual layout and Katerina's painting all added to our enjoyment. It is within walking distance of tavernas and the sea. There is also a bus service into Chania - which solves the problem of driving and parking in Chania! Kostas was very helpful in giving us hints about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Catina and would love to return.
Katerina and Kostas provided a very warm welcome including snacks when we arrived at their beautiful villa.
It is a perfect venue for a big family get together or opportunity to bring friends together. The rooms are all good sizes, comfortable and nicely decorated with Katerina's fascinating art work.
There is everything you need for your stay, plenty of towels, soap, toilet paper, tea, coffee, spices and condiments, (although you really need to sharpen the knives Kostas!). Kostas and helpers cleaned for us mid week and did a fantastic job, fresh towels for all. The only slight issue is the quality of some of the showers which would be more of an issue if you had the maximum occupants in your party, but it didn't really bother us.
The outside areas of this villa are what really make it. The pool is fantastic, it was pristinely clean, there were plenty of sun loungers for all and it's such a relaxing area surrounded by gorgeous olive trees.
Happy evenings were spent around the large dining table having used the huge built in BBQ, and the lower floor balcony was perfect for game playing.
The jewel in the crown for me though was the upper floor balcony, it's a cosy area furnished with lots of cushions that provided a lovely area of shade in the day, cooler as it's high up and catches the breeze from the coast. In the evening there are tealight lamps to keep the cosy atmosphere and you can lie back and look at the stars. Magical.
The location is also really good, it's a 5 minute drive to the beach and amenities, there are some fabulous tavernas on the seafront and the beautiful harbour of Chania is near by.
Kostas is a warm, engaging host who is on hand to help with anything you need and quickly responded when we contacted him.
I'd highly recommend this place and would love to visit again one day. Thank you so much Kostas for everything we had such a lovely time.
Upon arrival my 9 friends and I were blown away by the beauty of the property and its location.
The owner, Kostas, greeted us with a smile and some delicious homemade Greek snacks and enthusiastically showed us round the villa, which is bedecked in beautiful paintings by his wife, as well as all the comforts that make the property feel like home.
The bedrooms were comfortable and roomy, we were 10 young males and none of us was left wanting.
The pool was as clean and immaculate as the villa and caught the sun the whole day with a lovely shaded area for those who want to keep a bit cooler.
The villa is also ideally located 10/15 minutes walk to the nearest shop and a 10 euro can ride to the bars and clubs for the nightlife was perfect. Allowing us the remote chilled atmosphere during the day time as well as the easy access of food and activities during the evenings.
I would recommend this property to anyone of all ages, the were plenty of board games, cuddly toys for younger ones, balconies for a more relaxed daytime snooze and much more.
I wish I could give this villa more than 5 stars, it was 10/10 just like the owner.
Thank you again for an amazing week Kostas!
I recently visited Kostas and Katerina's amazing villa for a weeks holiday with 12 friends. It was the most amazing villa and even these beautiful pictures don't do it justice! It is surrounded by olive groves, but still a ten minute walk from local shops and the sea, and an easy bus ride to chania town. It could not be in any more beautiful location, and we had glorious weather even in april for relaxing by the pool. There are plenty of things to see and do locally, or if not there are lots of activities to do at the house. The house was clean and well equipped, especially with a huge BBQ to feed 12 every night! On arrival Kostas provided us with snacks fresh from the oven and local cretan wine. We very much enjoyed our stay, thank you Kostas!
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
