Villa Sarna is set on a hill, surrounded by olive groves, with breathtaking turquoise blue sea views. It is one of three newly-built, gorgeous villas in the Falasarna Luxury Villas development at Falasarna. The villa would suit a large family or a group of friends. It sleeps, twelve guests.
Falasarna beach is located at the western base of the stunning Cape Gramvousa on the far west of Crete, 59km west of Chania Town and 17km west of Kissamos. Falasarna is famous for its wonderful beach. It is also close to the fabulous Balos and Elafonisi beaches which adorn many holiday posters.
Villa Sarna has a fantastic design, making the most of its hillside position and ensuring the best views possible from all of the rooms. The sunsets are incredible. You can sit on the terrace or the balconies to enjoy these. Most of the rooms have full-length windows and doors, so the whole villa is incredibly light and cheerful. Though contemporary in design, great use has been made of traditional stone materials with wooden beamed ceilings to create a warm, comfortable ambience. There are splashes of sea blue colours to give the villa a true ‘house by the sea’ feel.
The terrace is very special with a lovely, heated infinity pool and a fantastic outdoor lounge and dining area under a beautiful, modern canopy. It is very easy to imagine relaxing and enjoying a few drinks and alfresco dinner watching the gorgeous sunsets here.
The ground floor is home to one of the delightful bedrooms with an excellent, sparkling ensuite bathroom as well as the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. This airy, elegant space offers guests ravishing views and comfort. The kitchen is sleek and very well fitted. The living space flows marvellously into a further relaxation area facing the terrace and the sea. It is a perfect spot for a cup of coffee and to read a book.
The remaining four double bedrooms are upstairs. They are a mix of twin and double beds, and all have access to a furnished balcony with ravishing sea views. The ensuite bathrooms are all beautiful. Villa Sarna is a great choice for a family or friends holiday. It offers a secluded, peaceful setting with astounding views and close proximity to a fabulous beach.

Falasarna Beach has won various awards and accolades as a top beach in Europe with its silver sands and turquoise blue sea. Ruins of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Falasarna are located at the northern end of the beach. There are several companies offering watersports as well as beach bars and cafes and sun loungers to rent. The bay is actually made up of 5 beaches so you can always find a quiet spot if you wish.
Elafonisi is to the south of Falasarna. The small island is a nature lovers paradise and is reached by wading through the shallow water. The white and pink sandy beaches are beautiful though without shade on the island. The island is an internationally classified nature reserve and home to more than 100 rare plants. Elafonisi is a great place to windsurf. You will see many windsurfers to the left of the sandbank, enjoying the prevailing winds.
Balos Lagoon beach adorns many posters, being one of the most photographed beaches in Greece. The lagoon has silvery-white sand, often with a pink hue and white, vivid blue and turquoise waters. The lovely warm water is shallow and perfect for young children. The water is deeper and ideal for snorkelling beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon. Nature lovers adore this protected beach with its rare flora and fauna. Eleonora falcons, shags and cormorants nest in the caves and the area is a shelter for protected monk seal and loggerhead sea turtle. There are no cafes or shops other than on the ferries so you need to be organised.  Balos can be reached via a bumpy road by car or by boat. Many ferries leave from Kissamos on a daily basis.
It is very atmospheric wandering along the market stalls in the narrow lanes of Chania Old Town. The bars and waterfront restaurants are very buzzy, and there are often musicians playing around the old Venetian harbour. The Old Town is very busy so it is good to book some of the more popular rooftop restaurants. The sunsets are breathtaking with the Venetian lighthouse a focal point plus you can board a boat in the harbour for a sunset cruise. Don’t forget your camera if you take a walk along the harbour wall to the lighthouse! Another way to get about is to take a segway tour.
Active guests may enjoy some of the challenging hikes around the many gorges on the island. The Topolia Gorge and Agia Sofia Cave is on the way to Elafonisi in one of the mountains in Kastsomatado village. It is quite a climb but a great chance to do something different and break the drive. Make sure you are not wearing flipflops though!
Crete is a large island with stunning scenery, incredible beaches and fabulous restaurants though it is easy to take a day trip to the island of Santorini where you can marvel at the blue and white buildings typical of the island. You can admire the unique views from the village of Oia, swim off the black sand beach of Perissa, enjoy Fira and catch a boat to the caldera of a volcano.

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.

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

Children will love Falasarna, Elafonisi and Balos beaches. Some have watersports to enjoy whilst others are just for relaxing, splashing and swimming. There are several surf schools, including Kalo Surf at Kissamos and several opportunities to learn to stand-up paddleboard.
Chania Town offers a great deal for families. Minoan’s World of 3D Museum and 9D Cinema is an informative and fun immersive cinema where you can learn about the Minoan history while enjoying 11 effects. You can take a glass-bottom boat tour from the harbour to view the flora and fauna and swim and snorkel around the shallow waters of the tiny island of Lazaretto.
Limnoupolis is a water park close to Chania boasting 11 exciting waterslides, including 100m giant slides, free-fall slides, triple twist sliders, the relaxing 130m crazy river as well as a huge swimming pool with a diving platform and a relaxation area.
Another fun adventure would be to gallop on the beach or to take a tour of the Cretan mountains on horseback from Georgioupolis. You can arrange fascinating nature walks, exciting beach rides, beautiful mini-safaris, relaxing day trips to the unique lake of Kournas and the waterfalls of Argiroupoli. The Kournas Lake is 28km west of Rethymno and 4km from Georgioupolis. Surrounded by the White Mountains, it is very picturesque and is a great place for a picnic. There are restaurants and cafes too and paddleboats to rent.
