The pool is very attractive with flowers and shrubs around it. There is ample space with sun-loungers for the guests to relax and swim. At the far end there is a bar with a fridge. It can also be fun to have a barbecue by the pool or a swim in the evening.

About Arianne Geervliet

Arianne is originally from Holland and lived in Luxembourg for several years before she came to Crete. She has a degree in Health Sciences from the University of Maastricht. She loves gardening, cooking and walking.

Arianne Geervliet purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Arianne Geervliet chose Kastelli (Kissamos)

Arianne fell in love with the Kissamos area many years ago because of the beautiful landscape and authentic atmosphere. Tourism is still not dominant here; normal Greek life goes on in this olive farming region throughout the year making her feel very much part of the community..

What makes this farmhouse unique

Arianne immediately loved the unique location of Kastania Lodge, so close to Kissamos but set in a natural environment. She spent two years on the restoration and the whole property is now set in a mature Mediterranean garden.

A gem in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We (my 84 year old mother, my 20 year old daughter, my wife and myself) were absolutely delighted with our stay at the lodge, which was even nicer than we had expected.

Setting up our rental had been easy—Arianne answered all email questions promptly, and provided excellent directions to the house. As she says on the website, you do need a car, since the house is in the hills above Kissamos.

The place is absolutely gorgeous, flowers everywhere, a well-kept pool, a big roof terrace to view both sunrise and sunset. The house is furnished comfortably, and was spotless. We ended up using the kitchen a lot, and found it well-stocked with tools, plates and pots.

Arianne provided us with ample information about local hiking and walking destinations, restaurants and tips for shopping.

Overall it's a great place for independent travelers, and we're planning to tell all our friends about it!

Kastania Lodge is in a stunning location on a hillside overlooking the small seaside town of Kissamos, the sea and the olive groves. On the premises of 2800m2 Kastania Apartment and Kastania Studio are also for rent.

It's all part of the tiny hamlet of Kounoupitsa. This little gem is perfect for those who want to be near all the amenities of a small Greek town, but also appreciate the peace and quiet of the countryside. It takes less than 5 minutes to drive to town or to the nearest beaches.

We provide our guests with an information book with suggestions for day-trips, good tavernas, walks, snorkeling and diving, shopping and other practical information.

Literally from your doorstep you can go on walks and explore the area, which is rich in wild flowers, little churches and ancient sites.

Kastania Lodge is a perfect base from which to explore the west of Crete. The beautiful white sand beach of Falasarna is only a 20 minute drive away, or a little further you can visit the sandy beach and nature reserve of Elafonisi, or you might wish to explore the Gramvousa peninsula and the famous lagoon of Balos with a day trip on a boat.

There are many beautiful gorges to hike; at Deliana, at Anidri and Agia Irini.

For those who are interested in ancient Greece, there are wonderful museums in Kissamos itself and in Chania. The museum in Kissamos has some of the best-preserved Roman mosaic floors in the world, while the Historical Museum of Chania boasts artifacts and carved seals dating back to 1500 AC.

Kissamos has many superb restaurants and fish tavernas where you can relax over a meal in the sunshine, on the seafront.

The nearby Venetian city of Chania is a must for culture and shopping. You can buy handmade leather goods in the famous 'leather lane'. Chania also has numerous excellent restaurants near the historic harbour where you can enjoy traditional Cretan cuisine.
