Overview

Pool Walk to Beach Walk to Village

For an idyllic family-friendly retreat, head to seven-bedroomed Villa Souda near the seaside city of Chania on the northwest coast of Crete. It’s an extensive three-level maisonette with a private pool. Surrounded by green gardens with vegetables, herbs and a vineyard, alongside rustic stone fencing, it’s secluded and private. Plus, it’s just 200 metres from Vlites Beach – a sandy, well-protected bay.

Laid-out for a relaxing home from home stay, there are parking spaces on site, alongside an outdoor barbecue and a wood oven. Shaded by parasols and surrounded by a garden dotted with palm and cypress trees, rock gardens and flower arrangements, the inviting pool area is a lovely spot to pass the day (especially with a cooling drink in hand). There are grassy areas – perfect for children to play safely and in sight – and plenty of chairs and sun loungers for you to while away the day on.

The air-conditioned villa has Wi-Fi throughout and is decorated modern in style with cream-coloured walls and contemporary furnishings. The seven bedrooms (sleeping up to 14) are all light and welcoming and have TVs and plenty of wardrobe space for storing your belongings. There are four bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, alongside a comfortable living room with a large sofa, plasma and fireplace. Let’s not forget the stylish dining room, which seats 14, either.

While you lounge in the pool, gazing at the Aegean from your secluded spot, it’s easy to imagine it’s not a holiday villa at all, but your fanciest friends’ home. In the evening, you can dine al fresco on your terrace while enjoying the relaxing atmosphere and beautiful sunset, or head 50 metres down the road where there are two scenic local tavernas by the sea.

If you’d like to discover more of the area, Villa Souda is ideally located to visit Crete’s must-see hotspots, historical sites and archaeological treasures. You’re only 800 metres from amenities including a supermarket and a cinema with bowling and 5km from the centre of Chania.

Villa Souda is ideally located 1km from peaceful Souda, a seaside town on the sun-soaked island of Crete. Although it’s in a secluded and quiet spot, surrounded by green gardens, the villa is also just 50 metres from local waterfront taverns, 200 metres from the sandy beach of Vlites and 800 metres from amenities including a supermarket and a cinema/bowling/playground complex.

With gorges to be walked, ancient sites to be visited, time trodden villages to be discovered, and stunning sandy beaches to be lazed upon, it’s the perfect Greek destination for holidaymakers of any age. Plus, food is in abundance. Look out for fresh seafood and traditional Greek moussaka.
The villa is 5km from the beautiful city of Chania. There you’ll find a charming Venetian Harbour and old port, alongside narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants. For days spent relaxing on the beach, Villa Souda is 10km (a 20-minute drive) from the small but beautiful beach of Marathi-Loutraki and 10km from Agioi Apostoloi Beach with crystal-clear and calm swimming waters.

From Chania, it’s a two-hour drive to the island's capital Heraklion where you can immerse yourself in ancient culture. The vibrant port city is best known for the Palace of Knossos. The archaeological site dates back thousands of years to the Minoan civilisation. Guarding the city’s Venetian port is the 16th-century Koules fortress. A drive around Heraklion will also bring you to traditional villages, Medieval castles, Byzantine monasteries and secluded coves.

How to reach Crete island

There are two ways to reach Crete Island: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane: Crete island has three airports: Chania (CHQ), Heraklion (HER) and Sitia (JSH). During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect the cities with the airport but if you want to feel safe that you will arrive on time you can prefer a taxi.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

With an enclosed private pool and garden area, plenty of places to play in the shade, and a sandy beach and amenities close by, Villa Souda is an ideal choice for families with children.
The nearest beach from the villa, Vlites beach, has calm crystal and shallow waters that are perfect for swimming. It’s well protected in a bay and has a long stretch of sandy shore. There are plenty more beaches to choose from in the area, alongside restaurants and shops in Chania, 5km away.
A short 800-metre walk from the villa is a multi-complex building with a cinema, playground and bowling. There are also cafés and restaurants there for picking up a drink or bite to eat.
If you rent a car, you can visit Heraklion, the capital of Crete, and visit the Palace of Knossos. It will take about two hours, but it’s certainly worth it to take in the fascinating Minoan civilisation. In Heraklion, there’s also plenty more pristine beaches, alongside a Venetian port and museums.
