Overview

About the property

CAREFULLY RESTORED 550-YEAR-OLD TOWN HOUSE IN QUIET LITTLE PEDESTRIAN STREET

Wonderful charming 3-storey town house, partly more than 550 years old, dating back as far as the Venetian Era. Situated in the old historic centre of Chania in Splanzia Quarter, close to the famous Splanzia Square in a quiet little pedestrian street, just a few minutes away from the sea and the Venetian Harbor, near to the port, very close to restaurants, (coffee) bars and shops. Very central and yet quiet.

On the ground floor you will find a living room/fully equipped kitchen (including a brand new cooker/oven) with a wooden table with 4 wooden chairs and a comfortable sofa. On the first floor is the Master bedroom with a double bed with a three layer-Medical Strom mattress and Coco Mat pillows. You will also find the freshly renovated bathroom here while on the top floor is the sitting room/second bedroom with a brand new sofa bed (double bed with extra top mattress). There is a spacious balcony with city view while there is sea view from the windows.

Due to the many windows (double glazed), the house is very bright which is very special for houses in the Old Town of Chania.

About Corinne Falagaris

Hi, I am Corinne. I have lived on Crete for almost 20 years and I love it! Crete is wonderful any time of the year. It's amazing to see all the different landscapes, the change of atmosphere when you travel around the island. Nothing is ever the same. There is always more to discover. Crete's people and the island's impressive nature have inspired me and I have been writing short stories about it for many years. In 2013, my first book was published, called Kalimera Pefki, which became a bestseller. If you decide to visit Crete and stay in my house in Gerasimou 33, Old Town Chania, I would be delighted to give you any information you need to make your stay a great one!

Corinne Falagaris purchased this house in 2016

Why Corinne Falagaris chose Old Town

My house is in the beautiful and historically interesting Old Town of Chania, very central, yet in a quiet little street. You do not need a car as you can reach any place of interest, shops, restaurants, bars etc. easily on foot. I love the light in this house, as it is very bright due to the many windows. The house has a wonderful and warm atmosphere, it is charming, comfortable and cozy and I am sure you will feel at home immediately!

What makes this house unique

From the windows in the top room there is sea view while on the other side from the balcony there is city view and you can see part of the old mosque.

My neighborhood is perfectly located in a part of the Old Town that is quiet and not commercial, so one can get a feel of living in an authentic residential area, getting away from the tourist crowds. At the same time, the house is located steps away from all of the best restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops that the Old Town has to offer. Best of all, just a few steps from the house is the picturesque Venetian Harbor. And every Saturday there is a large open market just a few streets down the block with fresh local fruit and vegetables, cheese, olives and fish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Though our arrival in Chania was so late, thank you for welcoming us, Corinne.

The house were very charming, and we spent a wonderful and comfortable time.

Corinne had provided breakfast and delicious drinks, too. Very much appreciated. More than one could hope for!

Thanks to you, Corinne, our first Greek (Crete, Chania) trip ever has become wonderful!

Wonderful in every way

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the owner, Corinne, couldn't be kinder or more helpful. From the moment we first contacted her, she's kept in touch and provided all the information we needed to make our stay as relaxing as possible - including a fabulous welcome pack of cheese, bread, milk, water, wine etc. The house itself is beautiful and has everything you could wish for, including a fabulous location with so many little bars and restaurants to choose from. It's close to everywhere you want to be. We're pretty seasoned travellers and this is genuinely one of the nicest rentals we've ever had. Can't wait to go back!

Unique Property

  • 5 of 5

I spent a wonderful 10 days in this lovingly restored townhouse. It is light and airy and interesting and has obviously been renovated with much love and thought. One of the best aspects was its location - easy walking distance to the harbour and old town - but distant enough to think you are part of the neighbourhood. Corrine is the perfect owner, there to welcome you and eager to help. Coffee on the balcony was always magic...the air full of swifts and swallows and peace. Highly recommended. It's special and different. A truly lovely place to stay. Ian Roger Beaumont 27/4/2018

Wonderful bright house in a quiet street in the center of the old town

  • 5 of 5

We ( a couple) loved our stay at this amazing house. The house is very fully equipped and has a light and happy atmosphere. We liked the balcony and from the window of the top floor you have a fantastic view over the town to the endless sea. And the bed is super. The little street is without traffic and in a nice quiet part of the old town and still very close to the sea, the harbour, shops, restaurants, saturdaymarket and the agora (markethall). Corinne Falagaris is a fantastic and helpful host and gave us lots of information. We will defenitely will come back.

Authentisches Leben in der Altstadt

  • 5 of 5

Es ist sehr angenehm in der Altstadt zu leben ganz nah am Hafen und doch ruhig und für sich zu sein.

Corinne sorgte dafür, dass es mir an nichts fehlte und ich fühlte mich sehr willkommen.

Great place to live amongst the locals

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal. You are a quick 5 min walk to the Agora (Market hall), 5 min walk to the end of the harbor/lighthouse path, and a 10 min walk to the KteA (bus station). In the late afternoon/evenings, the locals hang out in the alley and just sit in the chairs chatting and hanging out. This is what the Cretans do. I got a great picture of these moments

Corinne is fantastic and super friendly and helpful. She gave me tips on where to eat, what to see and do. My friend was supposed to come with me but had to cancel at the last minute. The place was huge for me but I think it's great for 1 person, no more than 2 people as there is only 1 bathroom or a small family. (but there are stairs to the sleeping areas so you need to be mindful). I would definitely stay at Corinne's again.Thanks again for your hospitality!

Great house perfect host!

  • 5 of 5

The house is not big but we perfectly adapted. We were two adults and three children and managed very well. It is perfectly equipped and in excellent condition. It's situated in a very nice and quiet street of the old town. It is very central and has all the facilities at a walking distance.

Corinne the host is just perfect! She did everything she could to make our life easier and was always available to answer questions and give us advice. Her tips were useful and practical. And on top of it, she is a sweetheart!

We highly recommend this place!

The central bus station is only a 10-15 minute walk from the house.
