Overview

About the property

This house used to be our family's hideaway for the summer. Now it is completely renovated for all year use in a modern fashion that makes you feel it is your home away from home. You will enjoy breakfast in the morning or your drink in the evening in the big veranda with the outstanding sea view (thea thalassa). Swimming in the private pool with the breathtaking view will relax your body and senses.

Thea Thalassa (Sea View in greek) villa is located in Kato Galatas, a quite area not far from the center of Chania (4,9 km) and the old town. The village of Kato Galatas (Kato stands for down in greek, here meaning “lower on the hill”) has become in relative terms a suburban area of Chania city, yet still retains a quite and residential atmosphere. The house is built on the lower edge of the hill, right above the sea and can be reached either through the road which connects Chania and Kissamos (westbound) or the National road (marked as E65) which connects all the main cities of the northern coastline of Crete.

Within walking distance from the house there are restaurants by the sea, cafés, fast food pizza, mini and supermarkets.

By the local bus (1,5 euro ticket) in about 20 min or by taxi in 10-15 min (8-10 euro) you may find yourself at the center of Chania to explore the venetian old port.

On the west side of the main road (old national road) are the sandy beaches of Stalos, Agia Marina and Platanias. More crowdy and full of beach bars, restaurants, shops, bars and night clubs. Walk along the coastline to enjoy the sunset and the sea view.

On the east side of the main road (way to the city) are the sandy beaches of Kalamaki (5 min walking from the house), Agi Apostoli and Chrisi Akti which leads you after less than 5 km to the old town of Chania (if you enjoy walking this is a very nice stroll across the coastline!).

In 1 min driving you can find yourself in the National Road (E65) so you have very easy access to the famous beaches of “Falassarna”, “Elafonisi” and “Balos”.

Chania airport is 15 km (about 20-30 min driving).

DRIVING DIRECTIONS FROM CHANIA AIRPORT AND SOUDA PORT

Follow the road signs to the highway and towards Kissamos (westbound). Take the Galatas exit, turn right on the stop sign. Keep going straight and follow Kato Galatas sign. You will see the house on your right hand side just before the end of the road (street name and number: Eleftherias 1)

THINGS TO DO

All the water sports in the beaches of Ag.Marina and Platanias.

In Agi Apostoli you may choose the “Golden Fun Park” for bowling and mini golf. And If you are a tennis enthusiast you may visit the “Tennis Club Chania” and possibly arrange for a match.

In wider area (you need a car or taxi) there is “Limnoupolis” the biggest water park of Crete, racetracks for cart driving and a horse riding club (in Varipetro village).

Beautiful, modern, and spotlessly clean home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4-night stay at Thea Thalassa! Elena was very welcoming, meeting us at the home at our preferred time, and she was there to see us off when we left for the airport, even though it was just after 7am. She made us a delicious chocolate cake to welcome us and was happy to show us all of the home's features. The view of the sea from the patio is so beautiful and the pool is stunning (my 2 girls spent a lot of time in it!) We appreciated the air conditioning in both bedrooms because the heat of the day can really make things hot at night for sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed, including pots and pans, a dishwasher, and even a washing machine (no dryer, but there was a large drying rack and hanging your clothes outside in the Greek heat dries them very quickly.) There was a parking space with a gate you closed at night. We opted to take the bus into Chania a few times after seeing that the parking situation in town could be tricky. The bus is only 1.70 Euros per ride, and the 21 bus picks up just past the hotel that is below the house. It lets you off right near the old town and the ride is about 30 minutes. We took a taxi home at night, which would cost 10 Euros. On a few nights, we sat outside on the patio with a nice bottle of wine that Elena left for us and enjoyed the live music that was playing at the bar in the hotel below the house - it was like having our own private concert and it stopped right at 11pm so the neighborhood could sleep. Our favorite thing about Thea Thalassa was that it was like our own oasis outside of the bustle and crowds of Chania. We could "get away from it all", but still be only a few miles from the history, restaurants, and shops of Chania. There are also some nice restaurants in Kalamaki that are a short walk from the house, when you just don't feel like heading into the city. Overall, Thea Thalassa exceeded our expectations and was one of the nicest homes we've ever rented!
