About the property

Magnificent views of sea and mountains, in the countryside but central, near Chania

The stone house is part of a small complex of only twelve stone houses / apartments in Kalathas on the Akrotiri peninsula, in a gorge (nature reserve) above the sea. You have a wonderful view of the gorge, which is open all year round in bloom, and the sea. In the distance, the peaks of the White Mountains can be seen.

Chania, the former capital of Crete, considered the most beautiful city of the island and is only 10 km away. Ryanair describes it as follows:

Chania ("Hanya") is the loveliest port city of Greece. Swallows soar in sheer blue skies above the semicircle of tall Venetian houses around its picture-perfect Old Harbour. The tables of scores of bars and restaurants line the quayside. Behind the harbor front, narrow, traffic shopping streets meander through the picturesque old town. On both sides of the city, a coastal sand beaches stretch along.

In Crete, it blooms throughout the year: oranges, lemons, oleander, jasmine, Bougainville, roses, especially nice is also the wildflowers bloom in the spring. Most can swim from early April at the latest until at least mid-November in the sea. A special experience is the Greek Easter, which can vary terminlich to 5 weeks from the German Easter. Many, beautiful walks and trips can be taken throughout the year, an absolute highlight is the Samaria Gorge, the largest canyon in Europe. Be sure to visit charming towns and many archaeological sites, such. As Knossos.

Tips for Getting: Crete is only about three hours away from Germany. Many cities there are direct flights to the international airport of Chania. From there, it is by rental car or taxi for about 15 minutes to the apartment. On request your rental car at the airport waiting for you. Alternatively, you can also fly to Heraklion, now the capital of Crete. From here, running every 30 minutes a bus to Chania, he needs for the very nice route along the coast about two hours. If you wish, you expect at the airport of Heraklion a rental car or the bus station in Chania. Another option is to fly to Athens. From here, there are six times daily flights to Chania, it takes 45 minutes. From Athens, but you can also make a small cruise and take the ferry to Souda. The ferry takes about eight hours, and Souda you are a taxi or rent a car in a quarter of an hour in the apartment.

Tips for cheap flights Cheap flights are available eg Ryanair, Condor, Air Berlin, German Wings, TUIfly and the Greek line flyer AegeanAir, partner of Lufthansa, which offers relatively attractive rates and both directly from German cities to Chania. Heraklion and flies, as well as six times a day from Athens to Chania.

Wirklich nettes Ferienhaus. Alles sauber, ordentlich, äußerst freundlich und sehr funktionell

  • 5 of 5

Empfehlenswertes Ferienhaus über 2 Etagen. Wir waren da als Familie, bestehend aus 5 Erwachsenen. Im Haus gibt es 2 Duschen, 2 Küchen, auch Platz für 6 Erwachsene zur gemeinsamen Mahlzeit; so gab es nirgendwo Engpässe. Das ganze Haus ist stilvoll und gepflegt eingerichtet, und auch gut funktionell ausgestattet. Wir haben also alles gefunden, wonach wir gesucht haben, sprich, was man auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt sich so vorstellt.

Die Betreuung vor Ort lief hervorragend ab. Äußerst freundliche Kommunikation, dabei kompetent und doch unaufdringlich. Zum Beispiel haben wir für den defekten Duschkopf (kann ja immer vorkommen) innerhalb von knapp 2 Stunden Ersatz geliefert bekommen. Das stellte mein Griechenland-Klischee auf den Kopf ;0)

Vom Obergeschoss aus hat man Blick aufs Meer inclusive Sonnenuntergang.

Zum wunderschönen Strand von Kalathas sind es ca.15 Gehminuten. Der Strand ist sauber, das Wasser wunderbar türkis, und weil es so flach reingeht, bestens geeignet für Familien. Daher eine friedliche und unkomplizierte Strandatmosphäre.

Für Ausflüge ist ein Leihwagen zu empfehlen.
