Kalathas apartment description

Nice and comfortably furnished apartment in a traditionally built house in a nature reserve. The walls are thick enough to keep the heath outside, the nature-stones look very beautiful, and there are only two apartments in this house. The little holiday village consists of only 12 houses and is situated on a gorge above the sea. All the year this gorge is full of flowers, and you can enjoy the view of the gorge as well as the view of the sea and of the White Mountains. It is only a short walk to two very good supermarkets, the bus stop, a special fine tavernas and the wonderful sandy beach. This beach is well protected because it is situated in a lovely bay, and it offers a lot: just relaxing and swimming, snorkelling to a small rocky island and even participating at diving lessons. Chania, former capital city and most beautiful city of Crete, is only 10 kilometres away. From here start excursions to all over island, you find a lot of shops, restaurants, bars, amusement, music...

Tips for your arrival: You can fly directly to Chania or as well to Heraklion, the main city. From Heraklion to Chania runs a bus every 30 minutes, but you can also rent a car, and they will bring to the airport - to Chania or to Heraklion. If you are interested, we can give you the addresses of very good and not expensive car-renting companies. You can also fly to Athens. From there you will have a flight with 'Aegean Air' to Chania or Heraklion 4 to 6 times a day. It takes about 45 minutes and costs about 50 EUR.

          Other Amenities

              • My husband and I are sailors, and for eight years we have been sailing about four months every summer in the Mediterranean see. In 2004 we came to Crete and at once fall in love with this beautiful island. Here we find everything that we love: the sea, mountains, a beautiful and intact nature, an amazing culture, very friendly people, towns full of life, lonely places ... And that is why we bought a hous ehere, for us, our family, friends, and you, our friendly guests. So you can be sure that everything is furnished and equipped very nice and comfortable with much love for the details. We ourselves are very happy, when we are here, and we want you to feel good and at home, too....moreless

                  Kalathas is situated on the Aktrotiri-Peninsula, 10 kilometres away from Chania, in the famous western part of Crete. Besides enjoying the beach and relaxing, you can go in for a lot of sports, and also make a many excursions, for example to the Lybian Coast, interesting towns and mountain villages, to famous ancient places (Knossos!) and excavations, the numerous gorges (Samaria!) and the mountains. From a little walk up to mountain climbing everything is possible - in the western part of Crete there are more than 20 summits higher than 2.000 metres! Many of the excursions you can do with very cheap public busses, for some it is better to rent a small car. Because Crete is an Island, you can also go for a lot of ship excursions, by sailing boats, glass-bottom boats or sightseeing boots. You will see, one holiday is not enough to enjoy only half of the most beautiful and interesting things in Crete!
