Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Chania area - 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.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

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!

Villa magnifique et vacances exceptionnelles

  • 5 of 5

Ces 2 semaines en Crête ont été formidables, en grande partie grâce à cette villa qui est superbe. Très spacieuse, des volumes très intéressants, elle est juste un peu bruyante car tout est ouvert, donc le premier réveillé doit faire très attention pour ne pas réveiller les autres. Mais c'est le seul bémol, la piscine est génial et pas seulement pour les enfants, les terrasses sont magiques, l'équipement de la maison est génial. Et le coin de Chania est vraiment très joli. A faire !!

Blown away by Villa Catani

  • 5 of 5

First impression was that Villa Catani really is fantastic in so many ways. The photos do not do it justice! We were blown away by the villa itself, the building is beautiful and has been constructed with a great deal of thought and love. It is really spacious and has excellent facilities too. We loved everything about it! Kostas and Katerina, the owners, are such lovely and accommodating people and really made us feel at home and relaxed. We would love to go back one day and would certainly recommend this Villa to anyone looking to go to Crete!

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
