Its award winner architect has come up with a design, for a luxury, yet easy-going, country home that combines traditional elements, (like wide stone walls, exposed wooden beams), with modern ones (like folding glass panels, interior light wells, lookout decks at each floor) to offer residents the sense of being secure and cozy, while open to enjoy the panoramic views and the docile Cretan climate – the best there is! Standing on its 4000 m2 of olive groves, with 12 x 3,5 m private pool, the villa is located at an idyllic countryside spot of Nea Kydonia, from where it’s just 10 min drive to Chania town, and 800 m to Kalamaki’ sea, with many sandy beaches nearby. What previous guests have loved most was the feeling of spaciousness, the communication and free lines of vision that the light wells allowed, the opportunity to enjoy being outdoors at the patio, the dinning terrace and the pool, the décor’s equilibrium of earthly colours and materials with aluminium and modern fitting.

Best villa we've ever rented
A truly impressive house, inside and out. We were a party of 9 and there was plenty of space for all, with beds to spare. The villa is superbly equipped, particularly for wonderful meals in, and the location is perfect--the sea and olive groves with few other houses in view, yet just two minutes from the National Road and easy access to Chania and other spots on the island. The pictures here and on the owner's site are just a taste of the pleasures of this house. I heartily recommend this property for any group of up to 12-14 people and commend Katerina and Kostas for their terrific service and helpfulness to their guests.
It is such a nice surprice to read this warm review!
Kostas and I are honoured to have you as guests, and we appreciate very much how well you all treated the house. Please relay our thoughts to your friends and thank them from us, and tell them we'll be happy to accommodate any of you again, whenever you can!
Holiday to remember
We were a large group of 13 and an infant, spanning 3 generations, and this villa was perfect for us, with room to spare. The outside space is huge, with 4 different covered balcony areas for dining and relaxing, with all the gardens, the pool area, and the large barbeque. Bedrooms were spacious and the kitchen had everything we needed. The furnishings were excellent quality, comfy couches , decent outside chairs and tables, and decorated in a homely style with art work , mirrors etc.
Unlike other properties we have stayed in, the owners didn't remove all useful things left by previous occupants, so we had lots of herbs, spices, olive oils,l washing powder etc that we could use, even beach towels that had been left behind. Very helpful.
Kostas greeted us warmly on arrival - an excellent host - with some home made snacks and a bottle of wine, which was unexpected and very welcome.There was even a variety of blow up airbeds at the pool and childrens' toys downstairs . I would recommend this villa to large groups who like places with masses of character - this Villa has loads. Kostas couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We hope to return there again one day.
Thanks so much to Kostas and Katerina for letting us stay at their wonderful villa. Location is absolutely perfect, we were a family of up to 11 at one point all mixed ages from 18-50. You can walk down to the beach or take a short drive/cab so some of the other beaches. Supermarkets 10 minutes away, chania town and platanias with restaurants, bars & clubs also just a 10/15 minute cab/drive. The villa is perfectly equipped for large groups, you never feel on top of each other. Also perfect for families with small children as well as teenagers and adults. We fell in love with Crete and will hopefully be back soon. Thank you again for an amazing holiday!
Fantastic villa - perfect location for a quick trip to Chania and a short walk to the beach
What a find !!
What a find ! This must be one of the best villas in Crete. It is spacious and well suited for our family party of 13 adults. It's slightly unusual layout and Katerina's painting all added to our enjoyment. It is within walking distance of tavernas and the sea. There is also a bus service into Chania - which solves the problem of driving and parking in Chania! Kostas was very helpful in giving us hints about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Catina and would love to return.
Beautifully located, wonderfully designed, peaceful family friendly villa.
Katerina and Kostas provided a very warm welcome including snacks when we arrived at their beautiful villa.
It is a perfect venue for a big family get together or opportunity to bring friends together. The rooms are all good sizes, comfortable and nicely decorated with Katerina's fascinating art work.
There is everything you need for your stay, plenty of towels, soap, toilet paper, tea, coffee, spices and condiments, (although you really need to sharpen the knives Kostas!). Kostas and helpers cleaned for us mid week and did a fantastic job, fresh towels for all. The only slight issue is the quality of some of the showers which would be more of an issue if you had the maximum occupants in your party, but it didn't really bother us.
The outside areas of this villa are what really make it. The pool is fantastic, it was pristinely clean, there were plenty of sun loungers for all and it's such a relaxing area surrounded by gorgeous olive trees.
Happy evenings were spent around the large dining table having used the huge built in BBQ, and the lower floor balcony was perfect for game playing.
The jewel in the crown for me though was the upper floor balcony, it's a cosy area furnished with lots of cushions that provided a lovely area of shade in the day, cooler as it's high up and catches the breeze from the coast. In the evening there are tealight lamps to keep the cosy atmosphere and you can lie back and look at the stars. Magical.
The location is also really good, it's a 5 minute drive to the beach and amenities, there are some fabulous tavernas on the seafront and the beautiful harbour of Chania is near by.
Kostas is a warm, engaging host who is on hand to help with anything you need and quickly responded when we contacted him.
I'd highly recommend this place and would love to visit again one day. Thank you so much Kostas for everything we had such a lovely time.
The villa is situated on its own, gently slopping, one-acre land, tucked among olive trees with open west view towards a low hill with olive and grapes groves and the north coast. Although only 5 km away from Chania Town it offers an away from it all peace, within walking distance from Kalamaki small harbor and its fishing boats and small beach. From there, one can walk east to Kalamaki resort which boasts a number of sheltered sandy beaches, mini markets, as well as seafront tavernas along the gently shelving beach. Stalos is 2 km west with its long sandy beach and numerous tourists’ shops and eating-places. You can use the villa as a base to explore ancient, rural and modern Crete, or simply to relax by the pool and allow the place’s magic, restore your energy. But then it’s only 10 min drive to Chania Old Venatian Town, (a town that stays alive even in winter), where you can enjoy a rich night life, good food, shops and market places. Other Activities: waterpark with waterslides, mini golf, kids race cars
