Chania (Hania) villa description

Greek Tourism Authorization No.MHTE 1042K10003000801

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 Hania 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.

Accessible features:: Ramp entrance to main floor.
Wide entrance doors, all doors at least 75 cm wide, most wider.
Bedrooms with room to manoeuvre.
Twin beds can be made 45 cm high.
A cargo lift (80cm X 110cm) gives access to all floors, but it's permitted to be used only to facilitate guests with mobility problems at theirs or their guardians' responsibility.
There are two accessible toilettes: a roll-in shower at the ground floor and a bathroom at the main floor. Both have 45cm high toilettes, accessible sinks, gripping bars, adjustable shower-height. The bathroom is accessed by a ramp; its bath-lid is 53cm high and it has a portable bath seat.
All entrances are level but the one to the upper deck.
NOTE 1: There is a step to the upper deck, and the portable ramp stops door from being closed

                  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 Hania 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 Hania, (a town that stays alive even in winter), where you can enjoy a rich night life, good food, shops and market places.
