This charming villa is located a stone's throw from the sandy beaches of Tersanas village, in the north corner of the always-sunny Crete.

Recommended nearby restaurants serving mouth-watering traditional Greek dishes are the Sunset taverna in Tersanas (1.3 km) and the Irene tavern in Chorafakia (2.4 km).

Interesting sailing trips depart every day from the little harbour of the gorgeous beach of Maherida (500m), taking you to the best spots across the Chania Bay well as to impressive islands such as Thodoru and Lazaretta.

Along with the above sightseeing opportunities, keep in mind that the Akrotiri Peninsula has a number of unique archeological sites which are certainly worth a visit. Explore the caves of Stavros, Arkalospilio and Arkaudospilius,  and discover the fascinating history lying behind the Gouverneto and Saint John the Hermit monasteries.

A visit to Chania, which also hosts an airport, is equally recommended. The city, that has seen many civilisations come and go over thousands of years of settlement, from Minoans to Romans, Byzantine to Ottoman, this rich history has carved out a unique and mysterious town.

Most of the restaurants, museums, churches and craft shops centre around the gorgeous Venetian harbour, which represents a window into the past Turkish and Venetian architecture that has otherwise largely been destroyed by war. Watching the sunset past the old lighthouse is a truly unmissable experience, but the area offers a different picturesque aesthetic at any given time of day.

The dramatic, mountainous interior of Crete is also well worthy of exploration, remaining unspoilt and largely unchanged for hundreds of years. Incredible churches, and sleepy little villages are hidden round every bend as you wind your way across the sun baked landscape.

How to reach Chania

There are two ways to reach Chania: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane:
Chania Airport (CHQ) is only a 20 minutes ride away from central Chania. During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect Chania city and most of the villas. You can also hire a car from one of the many rental companies at the airport, or alternatively get a taxi to bring you right to your doorstep.

By ferry:
If you choose to do an island-hopping trip and use the ferry as a method of transportation, then the closest port is in Souda, only 8km from the centre of Chania. Only ferries from Piraeus in Athens or Heraklion in Crete. Heraklion port has a wider choice: you can also take a ferry from other Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos or Paros, but you will have to take a longer bus ride to reach your villa. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.
