Chania (Hania) villa description

No more than 15 minutes by car from bustling Chania harbour and a 5 to 10 minute drive across country to the sandy beach at Kalamaki, Varipetro, the local village, boasts no more than a bakery, a couple of small shops selling basic necessities and a little cafenion. There are nevertheless some very good tavernas close at hand, in the nearby villages of Galatas and Daratsos approx 5 - 8 kms away.

Perfectly formed for two and positively oozing tranquillity Maros Spitaki is set in a Garden of Eden with, and here we make no apology, a somewhat ostentatious swimming pool and huge barbecue all screened by high hedges from the only neighbouring house.

The open plan living room of this villa has a cosy sitting area with fitted sofas and a TV and CD Player sitting amongst the authentic Cretan artefacts arranged on meticulously crafted wooden shelving, in keeping with the simple, aesthetic style of this villa with pool. At the far end of the room, the kitchen area has a large fridge freezer along with cooker and a dining table by an open fireplace. Off the living room, the air conditioned double bedroom has a well-appointed en suite bathroom, attractively finished with blue and white wall tiles. The cloistered rear courtyard is a veritable sun trap and has stairs up to the roof terrace where a shady grape arbour has astounding panoramic views across miles of open countryside, where orange and olive groves stretch to the distant phantom blue hills.

Beyond the house, a flower bordered path stretches some 80 metres to the start of the orange groves. On either side of the path are yet further fruit trees, including avocados, kiwi fruit, pomegranates and kumquats as well as oranges and lemons. Stone tables and benches are located in shady spots around the garden and there's even a couple of swings for the young at heart. Apart from fruit trees, Yiannis, the owner keeps chickens in a outhouse in the garden and there are also some itinerant ducks who wander off into the orange groves during the day and return at night to boast to the chickens of their exploits.

Please bear in mind that Yiannis will call in every few days to tend to his livestock, but if you like going native and prefer the world of nature to human kind, Maro's little house is definitely an experience too good to miss!

                                              If you would like to stay somewhere within striking distance of Chania and are looking for a double bed, plus peace and quiet in a Cretan Garden of Eden with Noah's Ark thrown in for good measure, then this is the mixture of metaphors you've been looking for! Some 500 metres from the tiny village of Varipetro and reached by a rough track through the olive groves, Maro's Spitaki (little house in Greek) is destined to launch a thousand postcards!
