You can will have the opportunity to socialize with the locals, taste fresh seasonal products and regional specialties, wander around the seaside promenade and dine at simple family-run eateries and taverns. The village’s beach has bot a sand and a shingle part, with some more popular and some quieter spots,

so you can take it as you please. In Kolymbari you can find all basic facilities, such as a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, bank, ATM’s, fuel station and a doctor’s office. There is a frequent bus service with Chania town and a taxi station. Should you feel like having a late night out or do some shopping, you can drive to the lively resort of Platanias, a 10min drive away, or to Chania town, for an even wider variety.

Kolymbari village : 1,5km

Nearest beach : 2km

Chania city : 23km

Souda port : 24km

Filira is an ideal starting point for exploring West Crete, with its gorgeous mountain ranges, cultural monuments, coastal towns and stunning beaches. Chania town, at a 20min drive from the villa, offers colorful neighborhoods to stroll around and monuments to visit, such as the Venetian port, the Museum, the lighthouse and the municipal market. Going behind the scenes, you can explore spots off the beaten track, with influences that give Chania a very unique character

Taking the inland drives, there is an impressive variation of mountain and coastal scenery. The White Mountains, with a number of gorges – Samaria Gorge being the most famous. The relaxing coastal resorts in the south and the west, will offer you a taste of the big blue, with golden beaches and clear waters. Near the villa, you will find the post-card perfect beaches of Falasarna and Balos.
