Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful stay at The House by the Sea. The house and grounds are perfectly situated across from a lovely beach, clean, spacious, and stylish, and well appointed with modern amenities. Chania was our favorite town in Crete, and Natalia was a gracious and available host. I'd highly recommend this!
I come from Chania
I studied and I work as a civil engineer.
My family and I live in Chania.
This lovely country house, is the first house, built in this lovely area .
It is built just 10 m from the sandy beach of Chrissi Akti.
Repairs to the house were made with absolute respect to the architecture of the period of its construction. It is a house that I adore just see it, full of memories from childhood ...
The property is as beautiful as in the pictures, with beautiful decoration and full of charm, the apartment clean and well equipped, the terraces dotted with flowering plants. The owners are absolutely charming while remaining very discreet.
Fantastic place, very quiet setting, recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a few days in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere!
The garden is an oasis in its own right with olive and bougainvillea trees encircling the house. This space provides ample opportunities for both relaxing and entertaining at the generous and shady garden table. From the garden, at sunset, the terrace lounge area provides an ideal setting.
Inside the property is an information book giving useful tips and advice to help you make the most of your holiday and the surrounding area. Other activities (water sports, sailing courses and other water sports) are available 2 km from the property. 500 m away there is also horse riding.
For those loving the mountains there is on 15 klm to the wonderful mountain area of for example Therisso Gorge. On the way there are many mountain villages waiting to be explored, offering beautiful views and good old fashion traditional Cretan food. The surroundings offer all someone could wish, from lovely beaches to amazing mountains, from modern beach life to old historical places, all reachable in not more than 20 minutes.
Located very close to Chania with easy access on foot 30 min, by bus 10 min, taxi and car 7 min.
It is perfect for two friendly families....
