Ideal base for visit to Chania

  • 4 of 5

The house is set over three floors plus a great roof terrace. It is ideally situated for shops, restaurants and the beautiful harbours in a quiet location.

We found the property very comfortable, clean and well equipped.

The owner was very easy to deal with and the booking process went very smoothly.

A little gem

  • 5 of 5

The house was delightful. Each floor held one room, all simply but tastefully decorated. The roof terrace was such a bonus. To be able to sit or lounge in the sun in October and sip a glass of chilled white wine was a winner!

Chania is a great place to wander. The atmospheric streets, the pretty harbour, the range of cafés for breakfast and restaurants for dinner was amazing.

We will definitely think about returning.

Clean, comfortable and a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented Efi’s lovely town house in Chania in September 2016. We arrived late at night and after some help from Efi on the phone we finally found the house at the end of a quiet lane. We had a small rental car (city type car) which we were able to park at the end of the lane next to the house – this was a real bonus as parking like everywhere is a problem. The house was immaculately clean and comfortable and just what we were looking for. The location could not be better, three minutes walk to the bustling old harbour area of Chania which is packed with restaurants and little shops. Great town to explore and a great base for doing some touring. All in all the accommodation gave us everything we needed and Efi was on the phone a few times to check we were OK. If you want a bit of hustle and bustle with a quiet haven after a busy day (sitting on the roof top terrace having a glass of wine/ouzo after a busy day was a real pleasure) and a base do some touring then Efi’s little town house fits the bill.

My wife and I rented this house to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Efi was extremely easy and willing to communicate every detail. Her house was just as presented and we were extremely pleased. We chose it based on the reviews by others and they were spot on. The location is perfect being extremely convenient to everything in Old Town but situated on a dead end street making it seem quieter than the busy harbor just minutes away. We would highly recommend staying there and plan on doing it again ourselves on our next trip!

Phenomenal !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Efi's Venetian house in January and I could not have been happier. The house is immaculately clean, bright and tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. There is no detail that has been overlooked; everything is taken care of and thoughtfully chosen. Even though it was winter I really had a wonderful holiday feeling in this house -plus comfortable heating and hot showers !

The house is in a quiet dead-end street just behind the old harbor, which makes it amazing peaceful in such a central location. An amazing place to stay.

peaceful, charming and romantic

  • 5 of 5

Due to a delay with our flight we arrived much later than expected, however Efi made provisions for us and kept in touch with us regularly before we flew out and when we arrived she informed us of the cost of transfers to the property from the airport. When we arrived at the house it was tidy, clean and ready to be used. We had a look around the house before retiring for the night and found the listing description of the property to be entirely accurate. The surrounding neighbourhood was peaceful and quiet, which matched our expectations for a quiet place to stay whilst on holiday. The harbour and other conveniences such as local shops were also a brief walk away, so it was very easy to buy everyday ingredients and cook for ourselves whilst staying at the house or to have a meal at one of the nearby restaurants on the harbour. The rooftop terrace was one of the highlights for us at this property, due to the lovely sunsets that can be admired from it and the relative privacy that it offers whilst enjoying meals. The rooftop is also perfect for sunbathing too, however we found ourselves going to one of the many nearby beaches on our many walks. Efi visited us twice during our stay at the property and on the first occasion kindly gave us a bottle of Malagousia to enjoy, which was a lovely introduction to Greek wines and a fantastic start to our holiday. I could not recommend this property enough if you are in search of a peaceful, charming and romantic locale whilst in Chania!

One of Crete’s main attractions is the beautiful old town of Chania with its Venetian Harbour lined with cafes and restaurants, and winding cobbled alleyways. Steeped in history, Chania stands on the ancient site of Kydonia which flourished during the Roman period, and later became the capital city of the Cretan State (1897 to 1913).

The harbour was built by the Venetians between 1320 and 1356. It was used for commerce and also as a fortification against pirate attacks.

The lighthouse is a distinctive feature of the harbour. It was built at the harbour entrance by the Venetians and restored in its present form by the Egyptians (1830-1840).

Take time to explore the back alleyways, you’ll be amazed at the gems you’ll discover: beautiful old Venetian buildings with courtyard cafes and cozy restaurants, Cretan handicraft shops, boot makers on the Leather Street, and rows of shops selling hand carved Cretan knives at the Stivanadika.
