About the property

Babu room is the cozy studio of La maison Fabre, A studio for 2 persons with private bathroom and terrace that provides views of a unique, unspoiled landscape and the garden, having as background the imposing White Mountains and the Cretan sea.

Babu room has independent entrance.

Located in a peaceful site of Crete, La maison Fabre reflects the vision of its owners, to create a home for world travelers by using in a creative way their knowledge as ethnologists, their sensitivity on art and their rich traveling experience.

La maison Fabre is designed by a Moroccan and a local architect which combined their perspective, knowledge and techniques to create an authentic and unique house, perfectly adjusted to the surrounding unspoiled Cretan landscape.

The property has a 6.000 m2 private land that includes olive trees, orange groves and a garden with local varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs. A patio and the many terraces of La maison Fabre will provide you unique views of the landscape and the garden, having as background the imposing White Mountains and the Cretan sea.

La maison Fabre is decorated with rare pieces of furniture, antique fabrics and other objects of primitive art from African and Asian countries. All items are unique and there are part of the owners private collection.

La maison Fabre is located in a peaceful site of Crete close to Gerani, a village situated in the municipality of Platanias. The village has 2 settlements, the coastal Kato Gerani with a beach (2,5 Km length) awarded with the blue flag and Pano Gerani where the unspoiled Cretan nature creates an amazing landscape with scattered olive groves, orange groves, tall cypresses, plane trees, and eucalyptus having as background the imposing white mountains and views of the Cretan sea. Gerani is believed to have been the site of Ancient Kydonia. Moreover, it is believed that there was a temple dedicated to Goddess Vritomartis, which many recognize as Artemis.

The distance between La maison Fabre and the settlement of Pano Gerani is 1km, 2km (5 min by car) from the closest beach, and 17km (20 min by car) from Chania international airport.

It is highly recommended to have a car, as the closest public bus stop is 2km away. The house has a big parking area. The last leg of the route to the house for a short distance (500m) is a remote village dirt road, but nevertheless it is not paved and should be noted.
