Peacefully situated in a slightly elevated setting behind the delightful little cove of Tersanas with its safe sandy beach, Villa Venetiana comprises eight cosy, couple-sized maisonettes. As the villa's name suggests the owner, Yiannis, designed it as a homage to the distinctive style of the Venetians; whose rule of Crete endowed the island with such treasures as Chania's beautiful harbour front. Being a sculptor and artist, however he also used the building and its grounds as a canvas for his own creativity, and the "Visual impact of his artwork around the enticing swimming pool is both fanciful and strikingly effective.

When you can drag yourself away from the seclusion of the swimming pool, the beach can be reached on foot in 5-10 minutes, and the nearest taverna is just a few minutes' walk away. A few other delightfully unpretentious eating places, as well as a mini-market can be found approximately 1 km away in the little village of Horafakia. The main town of Kounoupidiana, with banks, supermarkets, pharmacies, bakeries and a selection of tavernas is a ten to fifteen minute drive away.

Each of the eight maisonettes is arranged on two levels, with a small kitchen/ diner and a bathroom on the ground level. A steep but rather ornamental spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom, which benefits from attractive sloping ceiling and French doors opening onto a balcony. A shared outside barbecue is provided for those wishing to eat in. Half of the maisonettes face the bay of Tersanas and have lovely sea views from their balconies; the rear-facing maisonettes have a view of the wonderful gardens, where you can often find Yiannis at work. There is daily cleaning except for Sundays with towels and linen being provided and changed twice weekly.

Whilst it would be tempting to spend all one's time relaxing on the sunbeds by the lovely pool or down on the beach, the beaches of Stavros and Kalathas are only a ten minute drive away, one should not miss the opportunity to explore further afield, perhaps visiting the atmospheric monasteries of the Akrotiri peninsula. Chania Town is just a 30 minute drive away with the famous Knossos taking two hours. Villa Venetiana an ideal location for a relaxing stay close to this fascinating old town. To fully enjoy your stay car hire is recommended.
