About Vivien Lincoln-Gryff
My husband is an ex arts editor and a novelist. I write about cats. We have owned a house in Chania for 12 years and know Crete very well..
Vivien Lincoln-Gryff purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Vivien Lincoln-Gryff chose Chania
We chose this property of the huge space and the spectacular views of Chania and the White Mountains. Also because the apartment faces west and has great sunsets but keeps cool. And because I don't drive and I can walk into Chania.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment has wrap-around views of Chania the Cretan Sea and the White Mountains. The mountain-facing terrace with pool and barbecue is for the sole use of penthouse guests. The penthouse occupies the entire 10th floor of the building.

WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE!
The penthouse is just as big and bright and beautiful as the photos make it appear. Having the top floor of a 10 story building gave us a birds eye view of the coastline and mountains from our big windows, sun deck and multiple verandas. While not set in the heart of the Chania old Venetian harbor area, getting to the hustle and bustle of that tourist central was an easy walk or an even easier (and cheap) cab ride.
The flat was well appointed with everything we needed, as well as with things we didn't know we needed, like the espresso machine! Having secure, covered parking was also a very valuable thing to us.
A review of this property would not be compete without mentioning our hosts, Vivien and Christopher, who are delightful and went far above and beyond the all of duty by ensuring we knew where to find the best supermarket as well as a local swimming hole and several off-the-beaten path restaurants and tavernas we would never have found by ourselves that were amazing. We discovered that Vivien and Chris are both authors so forced the to let us read their books, which was a special treat. We bought copies of both of them!
They were the perfect guests: enthusiastic and appreciative, and the apartment looked perfect when they left.
Superbe semaine à La Canée. Tout était très bien. Excellente communication avec Vivien et très bon accueil. Appartement bien situé non loin du centre mais assez pour avoir la tranquillité.
Vivien and Chris were great hosts! The apartment was very spacious with a great view. You do not need a car if you are planning to stay in Chania as taxi service is very convenient and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back!
Lovely and spacious
We stayed in Chania Penthouse for 5 days and enjoyed being in a lovely and spacious apartment. The views were beautiful especially at sunset and sitting on the balcony enjoying the evening breeze was a nightly ritual. Vivien was very accommodating and kind. She showed us around the neighborhood and even escorted us to a beautiful seaside taverna when we arrived.
Perfect penthouse for your stay in Chania
The location of this apartment is perfect with magnificent views of Chania. The property is clean, fully functioning and isn't missing a thing! The apartment is spacious, nicely decorated and inviting! The host is just as inviting, kind and helpful. I would definately recommend this penthouse to my friends and family and would go back to stay at this same place except I would choose to stay longer!
