It is always so lovely being some of the first guests in a newly built, exquisite villa. Villa Quartz is absolutely gorgeous and offers luxurious holiday living in the wonderful resort of Kalamaki, close to Chania. With three sensational bedroom suites, chic open-plan living and beautiful outdoor space, it is a brilliant pick for a family or group of friends. Not only that, our Villa Fluorite sits above so you could invite another family or more friends to join you and stay there.
 
Kalamaki is just fabulous. With glistening soft sands, warm, turquoise sea, a fantastic range of restaurants, bars and tavernas plus a variety of shops, it is a wonderful destination where you can truly relax and easily explore the many charms of Crete. If you don’t want to drive once you arrive at your villa, you can easily catch the local buses or take a taxi into Chania Old Town, Agia Marina or beyond. Chania Old Town is one of the most alluring, captivating towns of Crete. The Venetian port is just 5km from the villa. With picturesque, narrow alleys draped with colourful bougainvillea, a fabulous dining scene, atmospheric bars, the most amazing sunsets and gorgeous little boutiques lining the cobbled streets, you will quickly lose your heart and want to return time and time again. Crete is also home to three of the most sensational beaches in all of Greece, Balos Beach, Elafonisi and Falasarna. You really must try and visit at least one of them during your stay.
 
Villa Quartz is part of a new complex of two luxurious villas set within a short walking distance of the beach. Totally independent of each other and both with their own swimming pool, the villas are beautifully appointed inside and out. The contemporary design of the building is very impressive with stone elements blending beautifully with sleek render and glass architecture. Being all on the ground floor, Villa Quartz is particularly beneficial to guests with any mobility issues or families with push chairs.
 
The villa’s open-plan living space enjoys minimalist styling, a comfy sofa sprinkled with colourful scatter cushions, a large Smart television, a contemporary fire, a smart dining area and a fantastic kitchen. This offers exceptional appliances including an oversized fridge freezer, beautiful tiling and very tasteful wood and white kitchen units. Double doors open to the terrace and your pool deck, also drowning this contemporary space in natural light and offering stunning sea views. The sofa in the living room can be converted to a double bed should you have extra guests.
 
Two of the exquisite bedrooms offer contemporary double beds while the last offers twins, all beautifully dressed in crisp cottons and gorgeous soft furnishings. Each of the bedrooms boasts a Smart television, trendy hanging space for your holiday wardrobes, access to the terrace and an immaculate ensuite bathroom. With mellow, natural colour tones, they are calm spaces where you will dive deep into slumber. The bathrooms are stunning with either marbled or black tiling and the very best of fittings. To keep up your fitness levels, Villa Quartz also comes with a brilliantly well-equipped gym.
 
Outside, you can enjoy a dip in a fabulous pool, laze on luxury loungers or trendy bean bag beds and dine alfresco with a sea view. Your barbecue masters will love cooking on the quality gas barbecue. There is also a wonderful alfresco lounge area, perfect for your early morning cup of coffee or a pre-dinner drink.
 
Villa Quartz is a brilliant villa where your holiday dreams will come true.

Villa Quartz enjoys a fabulous position, just 100m from the beach in Kalamaki, a very friendly, laid-back resort just outside of Chania. With a gorgeous sandy beach, crystal clear water, amazing restaurants and tavernas and some useful shops, it is a great place to be. The beach restaurants are wonderful and generally always offer a glass of raki and some fruit or a dinky pudding as a treat afterwards. There is a good range of restaurants, some serving traditional Greek specialities and others offering fine dining such Corinna Star at Corinna Mare and the restaurant at the Domes Noruz Chania Hotel.
 
You do not need a car when staying in Kalamaki though you may prefer to have one to explore this heavenly island. A good bus service runs from Kalamaki into the Old Town of Chania and the list of excursions is endless. You may want to spend a day on the exotic, spectacular beaches of Balos, Falasarna or Elafonisi, you may want to visit some of the mountain villages, visit some ancient monasteries and historic monuments or hike one of the dramatic gorges.
 
Known as the Venice of the East, Chania Old Town is truly magical with unique shops lining its charming cobbled streets, a brilliant dining scene, trendy waterfront bars serving delicious cocktails and its famous Venetian harbour and imposing lighthouse. The harbour was originally built by the Venetians between 1320 and 1356 and is now a vibrant, cosmopolitan spot for tourists and locals. The Egyptian lighthouse is much photographed, especially at sunset. You can take a slow meander to the lighthouse to take in the stunning views of the harbour, the Old Town with its backdrop of the majestic White Mountains. On the waterfront, the Giali Tzamisi is the oldest Muslim building in Crete. The Turkish name is translated to ‘The Seaside Mosque’. It plays host to various cultural events and exhibitions. One visit to Chania Old Town will not be enough!
 
After the Minoan Palace of Knossos, the second most visited tourist attraction in Crete is the dramatic and imposing Samaria Gorge. It is the longest and most famous gorge in Europe, sitting at the foothills of the White Mountains. Within the White Mountain’s National Park, it rises to an altitude of 1,230m, is 150m at its widest point and 3m at its narrowest. It continues down to Agia Roumeli on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The park and gorge offer protection to over four hundred and fifty species of plant and animal, of which seventy are endemic to Crete. This includes the rare wild kri-kri goats.
 
If you get time to visit one of the Balos, Elafonisi and Falasarna beaches, you will remember them forever. In the protected ‘NATURA’ area of Balos Bay, Balos’ glistening white sand and turquoise sea are incredible. Not far away is the Cretan wonder, Falasarna, another nestled lagoon with pool-like waters and pink sand. It has been awarded the best beach of Crete and one of the top ten beaches in Europe. Elafonisi has also been named one of the world’s top beaches. It is connected by a sand bar to an island nature reserve with pink sands, wildflowers and unusual rock formations. There is no shade on the island but there are delightful little coves and pockets of sandy beach as well as being home to more than one hundred rare plants including summer sea daffodils and winter-flowering Androcymbium rechingeri. You may even see rare loggerhead sea turtles and you will definitely enjoy picture-perfect sunsets.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Quartz is perfect for a family holiday. It is contemporary, and spacious, enjoys a fabulous swimming pool and is only 100m from a family-friendly beach with shallow, crystal-clear water. The villa also boasts a gym which may be popular with teens. Kalamaki is a wonderful resort for families. It is very friendly with a great selection of tavernas and restaurants.
 
If you haven’t hired a car it is very easy to get a bus into Chania or along to Agia Marina where you will find much entertainment. Minoan’s World 3D Museum and 9D Cinema in Chania Town are popular. It is an immersive cinema where you can learn about the Minoan history while enjoying effects such as earthquakes and snow, bubbles and wind. There are many photo opportunities with murals in the background. The movie stars Zeus as a baby and as a God, abductions, flying too close to the sun and an eruption of the volcano in Santorini causing a devastating tsunami that ended the Minoan era. Agia Marina has a fun mini-golf.
 
Limnoupolis is a fun water park close to Chania boasting eleven exciting waterslides such as 100m giant slides, free fall slides, a black hole and triple twist slides, a kid’s pool and an artificial island. It also boasts a relaxing 130m lazy river, a huge swimming pool with a diving platform, a kiddie pool and a relaxation area.
 
The Botanical Park of Crete is a 20-hectare park, 18km from Chania. It boasts 150 species of fruit trees and hundreds of herbs, and medicinal and ornamental plants that the Cretan mountains are famous for. It is home to many birds around the lake, butterflies, wild goats, hares, badgers, Cretan rock ferrets, weasels and tree frogs. There is also a restaurant with amazing mountain views.
 
Lake Kournas is Crete’s largest freshwater lake and is fed by natural springs running off the Lefka Ori mountains. The water is 22m at its deepest and is a stunning turquoise colour. It is an excellent excursion with pedalos, lots of geese and terrapins and plenty of tavernas nearby. Close by is the Kanakis Olive Mill where you can learn all about the production of olive oil. You can taste the oil in the shop and pick up some souvenirs. You should also take a photograph with the 2000-year-old olive tree outside.
 
If you decide to visit Balos Beach, you can either drive or take a boat ride there. This is fun too. Just make sure you pack some refreshments and perhaps a beach parasol as there isn’t anything there to protect you from the sun.
