About Manolis Pavlidakis

I love black and white photography and listening to music from vinyl records.

My academic interests are in modern philosophy and in philosophy of art and architecture. This is the reason that I supported to live in this simple-line and unique living space.

Sometimes I exhibit my personal work in B & W photography and this is something that allows me to communicate with people from all over the world and to share the value of aesthetics in life.

My purpose is my guests to feel comfortable, like their home, staying true to the spirit of human hospitality.

Why Manolis Pavlidakis chose Chania

This house "lives on in the memory" of the visitor as an experience of space and what lived in this.

The building was designed to be not only the simplicity in form, but mainly through the way that the user understands, lives and uses it

Villa 7 was Greek nominated building for MIES VAN DER ROHE European awards 2009. Also Awarded for its architecture, refers to the 200 best in the country at prestigious architectural magazine "Quality Building in Greece- KTIRIO" (see Web Links).

Unique villa unique architecture

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful villa for 8 days over the Christmas holidays. Manolis owner was 100 % attentive. The pictures tell the story well, a fantastic villa in a traditional peaceful greek village. The beautiful city of Chania is really close (2 km.).Villa seven (7) is far away from all the noise, but close enough to everything you need (beaches, restaurants, mountains, everything).

The house was very clean and there is always more than you need available. So many smaller or bigger spots inside the villa and outside the villa, so many places of perfect in every detail architecture. You may only relax and enjoy the balanced decoration. The villa was perfectly suitable for all of our needs. In a few words we already look forward coming back.

Thanks a lot Manolis for great hospitality, all the useful information about the area and places of interest. Thanks for really being available for any kind of need we had.

Exceptional place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were fascinated by the photographs and the overall presentation of Villa 7, so we decided (2 families, 8 persons total) to spend our vacations there. The place was magical! The architecture of the Villa is remarkable, because it combines minimal spacious design, cosiness, large open spaces and a very relaxing and quiet surrounding. We were impressed by the kindness and discretion of the owner, Mr. Manolis, as well as by his unique taste in decoration and art! Everything taken care of in detail level, clean and as it should be; perfect for well-remembered vacations! Villa 7 is so close to the center of Chania, that it was perfect for sight-seeing combined with in-day relaxation. A perfect place to stay! Totally recommended! Will visit again definitely!

The house lies within Chania municipality, municipal district Perivolia and is located in a short distance from the Therisso Gorge and the sea. The wider area is covered with vineyards, orchards and olive trees. The village where the residence lies is a quiet, traditional Cretan village with old stone houses and some more modern buildings as well. The house is located in the Therisso Gorge entrance, a gorge famous both for its historicity and for its wild beauty. The route from the house to the gorge and to the village of Therisso is preferred by many for cycling activities and for dining as there are many restaurants with traditional Cretan cuisine within it. The access to the city of Chania and to the sea is particularly quick and easy as it lies just 3 klm away from the city and 2.5 klm away from the sea.
