Location: Akrotiri Peninsula overlooking the old port of Chania, on Profiti Hlias Hill, 10 minutes from the top Akrotiri Beaches, the Port of Souda, and the International Airport of Chania.
The property features two different villas, one hosting up to 4 guests, and the other one for up to 6 guests.
Each villa comes with gorgeous pools and gardens as well as a terrace with privileged views over the Bay of Chania, the Egyptian Lighthouse, and the Old Venetian Harbor, in the old town of Chania, located less than 5 km from the home.
The homes feature comfortable beds (and sofa beds for extra guests), and convenient features such as a well-equipped and modern kitchen with all the necessary appliances, a convenient laundry room, and seating areas both inside and outside of the house.
Moreover, within only a 5-minute walk, you can find a supermarket, great restaurants, a beautiful park, and more shops and convenience stores in the small nearby village of Kounoupidiana.
Insider’s tip: I live in this area and it is extremely convenient to reach Chania within minutes still remaining far enough to avoid crowds in summer. Some of the top beaches in the region are really close to the villa.
Location: The villas are in the small village of Pano Stalos, offering incredible views of the sea and the green fields of orange and olive trees. It’s a stone’s throw from the popular seaside resorts of Platanias and Agia Marina, as well as 20 minutes from the center of Chania.
Most reviews agree on the fact that the place looks even better once you’re there than in the photos!
On the premises, you will find a three-bedroom villa, featuring a kitchen with modern appliances, including a dishwasher and a coffee machine.
There is also a private pool with balconies and terraces featuring sea and mountain views.
On the terrace, you will also find fantastic barbecue facilities and comfy sofas to spend a relaxing afternoon after a long day exploring the region of Chania.

It features a gorgeous terrace and a patio as well as private parking, something quite hard to find in Chania (so… don’t miss this villa!)
