Overview

Pool Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

A modern masterpiece in the leafy suburbs of outside Chania, Vila Sofos is an enchanting home for a large group of friends of family!

As you arrive you’ll find tons of room for parking for the whole group, and a fantastic entrance up the striking steps. But it’s what’s inside that really makes this home! First there’s your wonderful main lounge. Fabulously open-plan, with a plush L-shaped sofa framing a superb dining table at the centre of the room, nestled into this magnificent modern kitchen! This first fabulous kitchen is here on the ground floor, providing you immediate access to your incredible garden, so you can prepare some treats and keep an eye on the kids splashing in the pool at the same time! Go one floor up and you’ll find the second, equally impressive full kitchen, with big gas hobs and a double sink, alongside a second cosy lounge, with another L-shaped sofa set in front of the TV, perfect for unwinding! A second dining area completes this open-plan space.

Six sublime bedrooms await you across the villa, each meticulously designed with the utmost care. A large TV, a writing desk and huge comfortable beds offer the perfect space for settling in for the night, penning a postcard home, or catching a few moments of peace! There’s a mixture of delightful double rooms and spacious twin rooms. Four feature an exceptional ensuite bathroom, while there are an additional two bathrooms around the villa. All have a sublime mixture of luxurious marble effects, large bathtubs, double vanity units, walk-in showers and countless other gorgeous touches.

For the ultimate relaxation, step into your spectacular garden and pop your feet up as you lounge in these gorgeous seats and sofas on the terrace. Or else settle into a lounger by the pool as you gaze out over the dazzling pool, watching the breeze rippling the glassy surface. There’s tons of loungers as well as swinging pods for truly the most idyllic time spent in the sunshine and fresh air, perhaps watching the kids frolicking on the lawn, or simply sipping a cocktail as the sun sets. To one side there’s your incredibly stylish alfresco dining area, for unforgettable meals together, and in the evening spectacular lighting brings the whole garden to life, including elegant pool lighting creating the most wonderful atmosphere.

What you should know…

Tucked on the west-side of the vibrant Chania Prefecture, Villa Sofos is ideally located to enjoy both the vibrancy of a large town and the tranquillity of the countryside, as well as benefit from some of the world’s best beaches on its doorstep! 2.4km from the nearest beach, and with literally hundreds more worth a visit all dotted around this little Greek island, this is truly an idyllic location! And with restaurants and shops within walking distance, you can have a totally laid-back stay in this stunning villa!

Just 10 minutes away is Chania, the capital of Crete and one of the most famous towns of the Greek islands, particularly for its authentic culture and character and historic structures, including its beautiful Venetian Harbour. It is an incredibly well-preserved Venetian town with all kinds of medieval architecture, framing a bustling metropolis of museums, churches, narrow shopping streets, waterfront restaurants and crafts shops. Alongside the stunning coastal areas and mountainous landscapes are an array of outstanding remains and glorious buildings of an ancient era, including a picturesque harbour front and interesting Venetian lighthouse.

Chania is also the perfect location to try all kinds of local cuisine, wine and traditional feasts. For educational and historical adventures you can visit the Maritime Museum and the Archaeological Museum, or take a trip to one of the many surrounding monasteries or historical sites including the Samaria Gorge, Venizelos Graves or the unique architectural complex of Tabakaria.

To the north of the island are some of the larger beaches, while to the south are the more secluded and traditional beaches, punctuated by small seaside villages, and of course there are thousands of deserted coves and isolated bays for private enjoyment, if you look hard enough! The West Coast beaches of soft sand and coloured pebbles, such as Falasarna, are around 45 minutes away, while the South Coast beaches with beautiful crystal waters, including Sougia, are less than an hour and a half away.

As with all of the Greek islands, you can be sure of a huge welcome on Crete. A warm, passionate people and such a beautifully sociable country, both young and old will welcome you with open arms in Greece. Whether in pavement cafes, cosy restaurants or the thriving town squares, the people love nothing more than to enjoy a coffee or an ouzo in the company of the local community.

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.

We bet the kids will adore trying out all the different local beaches, from the spectacular Paralia Agii Apostoli right on your doorstep just 7 minutes to the north, or the Paralia Kato Stalos, the same distance to the north-west, both utterly beautiful thanks to the stunning backdrop provided by this superb mountainous section of Crete.

For adventures further afield, you could head 25-minutes east to the incredible Kalives town and its superb, incredibly lively bay. With tons going on, the kids will love all the activity - meaning less for you to worry about, and more for them to enjoy! Or you could even head west to Platanias, the world-famous Falasarna, or even Rapaniana where the sunsets are spectacular!

Meanwhile, to the south are the fantastic beaches of Paleochora, Plakias and Elafonisi on the south coast, all within an hour and half’s drive and each totally different to the other, but all perfect for a little sunbathing for you and paddling and swimming for the kids!

And if it’s water sports you’re after - you’re in the perfect location up here on the north coast - with an abundance of opportunities! Whether you fancy stand up paddle boarding, jet-skiing, surfing or even scuba diving, you’ll find it all available on your local beaches! The incredible array of activities on offer for the whole family ensures you don’t need to worry about entertaining the kids. Simply hop in the car, turn up to any of these superb beaches nearby and see what’s in store for you each day. The kids will have an incredibly memorable trip, and in amongst all the fun and adrenaline, you’ll have plenty of chances to pop your feet up, unwind, and let them tire themselves out in the best possible way! Or of course - get stuck in and make memories for the whole family!

Reviews

  • Great stay in a great house

    Posted by Unnar Sig on 24/09/2019

    The house was great, with a excellent host, Stella was so helpful. You need a car if you would take a look a round, go shopping and to the beach. We were 12 of us and the size of the house was perfect. Everything very clean. If we needed anything, we just ask Stella or the helper and it was arrange. Can recommend this house.

  • Perfect holiday home for the family

    Posted by Satina T on 20/06/2019

    Loved the whole experience staying at Villa Sofos! The most used area was the pool area and the barbecue. Will definitely come back!

  • Magical experience

    Posted by Nanou on 17/06/2017

    We spent a week in villa aelia from the 5th of june to the 11th of june and we were 11 young adults.
    One word: perfect.
    The villa is literally amazing and even better than in the pictures.
    The pool is beautiful and the rooms too
    The kitchen and the living areas are practical and very cosy.
    Stella (who also very nicely decorated everything in there) made our stay 100% easier by advising us, making reservations and simply being available 24/7 for everything. She made our experience unforgettable!
    We couldn’t believe we had to leave this beautiful place after a week because it started feeling like home after only a few days...
    we really recommend villa aelia for a friend or a family trip!
    If you end up going, please make sure to take sometime to relax at the villa for a barbecue day for example, it is really worth it!
    Ps: we recommend going to salis and pallas restaurants, ballos and elafonisi beaches!!!
