In the living area, there is a comfortable sofa that can be used to relax and watch a movie in the evening, or converted in to a handy sofa bed.

Villa Cedar is situated close to Paleochora on the south-west side of Crete. This side of the island is one of seclusion, well away from the big towns such as Chania and Heraklion and any hustle and bustle. As such, it makes an idyllic spot for a quiet and tranquil holiday. One of this area’s most prominent features are it’s golden, sandy beaches. Of course, at Villa Cedar, there is direct access to Gramenno beach, but there are also many others in the area such as Andydri, Volakas, Plakaki, Krios, Keratides, Elafonissi and Kedrodasos. Most of these are accessible by car, but some can only be accessed by hiking or by boat.
One of the main activities you can enjoy in this part of the island is to take a boat tour. The port town of Paleochora, just five minutes from Villa Cedar, offers some excellent day cruises. Some of the most popular include trips to the island of Gavdos, the stunning Loutro bay, and the white-pebbled beach of Marmara.
You’ll also find a host of outdoor activities to take part in such as walking and cycling. This region of Crete is well known for its gorges and its most famed is Samaria Gorge. It’s the largest gorge in Europe and is treasured for its beauty and diversity of wildlife. You’ll also find others such as Anydri, Agia Irini, and Aradena, and many different hiking paths and trails to explore.
Finally, is of course the Cretan food. Crete is well renowned for its healthy produce, much of which is grown on the island. There are a handful of fantastic restaurants within walking distance of Villa Cedar, while a further variety are within a short drive away. The village of Kountoura has some local taverns that cook great seafood and local dishes. There is also the port town of Palechora that has become more popular amongst both tourist and locals due its significant development. There are many restaurants, bars, markets, and shops to discover in this wonderful port town.

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.
Please note that this property does not accept children under the age of 12.
Villa Cedar would make an excellent choice for families with older children or teens, who are bound to enjoy taking refreshing dips in the private pool or relaxing on the beach.
