Overview

Pool Resort Villa Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

Chania, a beautiful city on the northwest coast of Crete is famous for its stunning architecture that draws influences from Venice and Egypt, as well as its 16th century lighthouse, narrow streets, and waterfront restaurants. It is here, nestled in an elevated position and looking out over olive groves and endless blue sea, that you will find Villa Chania D, a beautifully modern and well-equipped 2 bedroom villa that accommodates up to 4 guests.

The ground floor of the villa houses a twin and double bedroom, as well as large comfortable bathroom. The twin room is decorated in calming, neutral shades, with light cream walls and tiled floors that contrast nicely with chocolate brown headboards and solid wooden bedside cabinets. The room is simply dressed with light curtains at the large double doors that lead to the outside, little white table lamps, and pale bedspreads in pearlescent pastel shades. The double room follows the same theme of tasteful yet simple decoration, with walls of cream and warm terracotta, paired with the light coloured bedding and furnishings. There is a small dark wood desk in this room, with a large framed mirror, as well as a flat screen wall-mounted TV, and large double doors offering those stunning views from the moment you wake up. The bathroom on this floor features a bathtub as well as toilet and basin, and is decorated in fresh white and chocolate coloured tiles, complemented by the sturdy wooden units that offer storage space for your toiletries and towels.

The first floor of Villa Chania D is a large open plan space that consists of the living, kitchen and dining areas, as well as a walk-in shower room. Modernly furnished and decorated, the decor throughout is neutral in palette with shades of cream and taupe, punctuated by accents of deep chocolate and soft grey. The sofas are of a contemporary design, as are the coffee table and the dining table; that seats up to 6 guests. The living and dining areas flow effortlessly into the kitchen area, where the shades of cream and stone make way for tones of black, white and grey in the tiled walls, contemporary units and food preparation surfaces. The kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, and fridge freezer. From this floor you can step out onto your private terrace to take in the incredible views of the Greek countryside and out over the sea, the perfect place to sip a morning coffee or an evening glass of bubbly.

Stepping outside you’ll enter your own enclosed courtyard/garden area, complete with pool, bbq and outdoor dining area. Here you’ll be able to enjoy alfresco meals, an early morning dip, or simply lay back on one of the loungers provided, shaded by a parasol and with drink in hand, and enjoy gazing at the beautiful Greek skyline.

What you should know…

  • Villa Chania D is situated within an area featuring several holiday villas and so you are likely to be overlooked by neighbouring holiday makers, and vice versa
  • There are many beautiful churches and monasteries to visit in the area, though tourists should be aware that if you want to venture inside there is a dress code which includes long trousers/skirts, and no vest tops
  • Crete is known for its incredible beaches, and you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to knowing which one to visit first, but please be aware that very few of them have lifeguards or watchers on duty

The uniquely beautiful city of Chania is located on Crete, Greece’s largest island. Crete is famous for its varied terrain which includes fine sandy beaches as well as the White Mountains, the tallest of which is home to the Ideon Cave, which according to Greek mythology was the birthplace of Zeus. It is on this island you will discover famous archaeological sites such as the Minoan palaces of Knossos, Phaistos, Malia and Kato Zakros. There are also 15th century monasteries to visit, including the Preveli monastery in southern Rethymno, as well as Byzantine and Venetian castles including Kastelli in Chania and the Monte Forte in Lassithi. Other cultural attractions in the area include the plethora of museums there are to visit, such as the Cretaquarium, the Museum of Natural History, and the Historical Museum of Crete.

If it’s more of the great outdoors that you’re after then Crete is the ideal destination for all manner of sports and outdoor activities, such as scuba diving, watersports, and horseback riding. The island’s gorges offer unparalleled beauty when it comes to canyon hiking; the largest and most famous being Samaria, but others worth noting are Tripiti, and Ha - the so called ‘King of Cretan Gorges’. There are sign-posted trails through the gorges and you’ll get experience incredibly diverse and beautiful landscapes as you explore.     

Here in Crete you’ll get to experience the most famous examples of the Mediterranean diet, long considered the healthiest internationally. There are many shops and market places selling fresh local produce to enjoy, including olive oil and cheeses, herbs and salad greens, as well as assorted savoury pies and sweets. You’ll be spoilt for choice at any of the many eateries and restaurants on the island, particularly in Chania, where, like the architecture, the cuisine has been influenced from all around the world. Crete is also known for its tsikoudia, a schnapps-like firewater that the locals often make themselves. During the evenings it flows at the tavernas, festivals and bars, fairs and cafes, so be sure to bring a bottle home so you can relive the memories.

Kids

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

Villa Chania D features ground floor bedrooms and shower room with toilet, which is an advantage if you are travelling with children and don’t want them having to navigate stairs in an unfamiliar setting in the middle of the night. The first floor is open plan which provides a nice spacious area for kids to play while you make breakfast or coffee, and there is a flat screen TV and DVD player available for their entertainment. The double doors on this floor do open out onto a private balcony, so caution is advised if you are holidaying with little ones. The outside areas are enclosed by a low stone wall, which offers some peace of mind to parents, and there are plenty of umbrellas available to provide ample shade. It is worth noting of course that there is an uncovered and unfenced pool, and so the normal precautions need to be taken.

Outside of the villa there are lots of attractions to fascinate the children and offer a great family day out. Cretaquarium is one such popular tourist spot. One of Europe’s largest aquariums, Cretaquarium showcases a diverse variety of marine life including large predator sharks, jellyfish, and delicate seahorses. There are 60 different tanks totalling 1.7 million litres of seawater that house 2,500 tropical and Meditteranean species, and over 100 observation points for visitors which include touch screen information, a periscope and microscope, as well as supplementary information to help create a comprehensive view of marine ecosystems. A full tour of Cretaquarium taking in all the exhibits and species will last about 2 hours, and guided tours in various languages can be arranged too.

For something more outdoorsy little explorers will enjoy a visit to Skotino Cave, one of the largest and spookiest caves in Crete! Also known as Agia Paraskevi Cave, after the chapel built above it, the cave features lofty chambers and massive limestone formations, as well as stalagmites and stalactites. Those without a torch and spelunking experience will not want to venture any further due to a 15m drop into the eerie darkness, but it is the entrance chamber that is worth a visit, with its gothic feel and rock formations that in the half-light take on the appearance of bears and dragons. Past excavations of the cave have unearthed vases and figurines dating back to Minoan times, suggesting the cave’s religious significance, indeed pilgrims still leave offerings there to this day.

Eating out in Crete with children will at first glance seem a bit of a challenge, largely due to the general lack of children’s menus in Greece as a whole. Having said that Chania in particularly has restaurants offering cuisines from all over the world, so it will be fairly easy to find something for even the fussiest eaters. For families wanting to try traditional Greek food the tavernas are particularly kid-friendly, and dishes the children might like to try include calamari, tiropitakia (cheese in filo pastry), dolmadhes (flavoured rice wrapped in vine leaves), and saganaki (fried cheese). Nuts and dairy are present in a lot of Cretan dishes, so it is advisable to have details of any allergies written down in Greek so that you can show it to restaurant staff before you order.
