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 apartment in 2005

Why Arianne Geervliet chose Chania

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 apartment 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.

Perfekter Urlaub in traumhafter Ruhe

  • 5 of 5

Die Woche bei Arianne war wunderschön und viel zu schnell vorbei. Die großzügige Wohnung The Lodge ist sehr durchdacht und mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgestattet, der Weg zum Pool von einer überwältigenden Blütenpracht gesäumt, die Anlage insgesamt sehr ruhig und gut gepflegt. Morgens und mittags findet man unter der schattig eingewachsenen Terrasse vor dem Haus ein gemütliches Plätzchen zum Essen; ein Muss sind der Sonnenauf- und untergang von der Dachterrasse mit Blick aufs Meer! Die Reinigung der Wohnung zwischendrin ist purer Luxus.

Arianne ist eine perfekte Gastgeberin, die mit unzähligen Ratschlägen und Tipps zur Seite steht (unbezahlbar der Parktipp für Chania oder auch der Essenstipp "Maria Beach"!) und ein großes Herz für unsere Kinder hatte.

Vielen Dank, liebe Arianne, für Deine Gastfreundschaft. Wir kommen nächstes Jahr auf jeden Fall wieder!

Comfortabel appartement op prachtige plek!

  • 5 of 5

We zijn net terug van een zalige vakantie in Kissamos. We hebben ruim twee weken vakantie gevierd in het appartement van Kastania Lodge met ons gezin met 3 jonge kinderen (waaronder een baby). Het appartement is zeer comfortabel, lekker ruim, met een enorm terras aan de voorkant met mooi uitzicht op de bergen vol olijfbomen en zee, waarop de kinderen heel wat uren gespeeld hebben.

Het klimaat is zalig, lekker warm, maar er staat bijna altijd wel wat wind en op momenten dat je het toch te warm vindt, kun je een plons nemen in het zwembad, of de airco gebruiken. Onze kinderen hebben zich heerlijk vermaakt in het zwembad, waarin een diep gedeelte zit ( ongeveer 1.80 diep) en een minder diep deel ( ongeveer 1.00) en ook een 'peuterbadje'. Bij het zwembad zijn er meerdere ligbedjes in de zon en in de schaduw, het is een prachtige plek met veel bloemen en een mooi uitzicht. Het is heerlijk rustige plek waar je lekker kunt lezen, en rond de lodge kun je lekker rondstruinen in de natuur.

Het appartement is lekker schoon, met goede bedden. Het wordt lekker luxe elke vier dagen schoongemaakt en je kunt er een was draaien, dus dat scheelt qua bagage. Kastania Lodge ligt op de rand van Kissamos, een vriendelijk stadje, met fijne bakkertjes, tavernes en een supermarkt. Er zijn geen hordes toeristen, maar een gezellige mix tussen Grieken en wat toeristen . Een heel aantal prachtige stranden ligt vlakbij (Falasarna, Balos en iets verder Elafonissi) en je kunt mooie tochten maken in de omgeving (wij vonden Polyrinia erg leuk). Het is wel belangrijk om een auto te huren anders is het lastig bereikbaar.

De gastvrouw Arianne is een hele leuke vrouw, zeer attent, met goede tips voor tochten die je kunt maken of tavernes waar je lekker kunt eten (wij vonden Maria Beach, direct aan het strand uiteindelijk de beste plek).

Van de crises hebben wij geen last gehad als toeristen, de Grieken waren net zo vriendelijk als altijd en we konden gewoon geld opnemen en alles was verkrijgbaar.

Wij hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad en kunnen Kastania Lodge van harte aanbevelen!

Traumhafter Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind gerade aus zwei wundervollen Urlaubswochen bei Arianne nach Hause zurückgekehrt und können dieses tolle Haus nur empfehlen. Die Anlage liegt etwas oberhalb von Kissamos, ist sehr gepflegt und besonders hübsch gestaltet. Besonders der Garten um den Pool und der Ausblick snd traumhaft. Wir haben im Studio gewohnt, sehr gemühtlich, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht. Die Dachterrasse ist einfach herrlich, um dort einen schönen Abend zu verbringen. Der Golf von Kissamos liegt einem zu Füßen. Die Vermieterin Arianne ist zudem unglaublich hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend . Alle ihre Tipps für schöne Ausflüge oder auch eine besonders gute Taveren waren super! Wir könnnen es kaum erwarten, nächstes Jahr wieder zu kommen!

Viele Grüße aus Deutschland Serdar (37) und Tanja (33)

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.
