Fenareti's house was built in 1780 and renovated for the first time in 1993 having been since then a popular choice for those who wish to be away from the clamant crowd and at the same time not far from the centrality.
The house is located in a small village of Apokoronas in Chania. The calmness of the village in combination with the beauty of the nature make the accommodation really pleasing. The house has a special architectural style as it is built amphitheatrically on the roots of a mountain and its spaces are shaped in different levels. The main construction materials of the house are wood and stones, offering a unique sense of relaxation and tranquillity.
At its about 130 sq m, Fenareti offers a big sitting room with fireplace and two stone sofas, a full comforted kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The main bedroom of the house is located at its first level. The beautiful view both at the sea and the village's champaign gives to the room a romantic mood. Apart from the double bed ,a big wardrobe, a dressing table with mirror and chair and two commodes are also available. A few indoor stairs and a wooden door separate the main bedroom from the central living – sitting room while another wooden traditional door leads to the lower yard of the house.
The second bedroom of the house with its own bathroom is located at its third level. There are two single beds one of which is located at the attic. The second single bed is a sofabed and after request it can be replaced by a double bed increasing the number of our quests. The attic is wooden creating a worm corner at the house while a wooden traditional door leads to the higher small and full of flowers yard of the house with the panoramic view.
Fenareti's house is available all year round. The property is ideal for couples, families and groups of friends who look for something special and want to avoid clamorousness towns and live the traditional way of life at a traditional Crete village.

About this location
The Chania Prefecture region
Crete is the biggest island of Greece as well as one of the most popular tourist destination.
The climate of the island is characterized as temperate Mediterranean and particularly dry with sunlight 70% of the year. During the summer period which lasts from April to October the weather is warm and everyone can enjoy the summer activities.A white carpet of snow may often be seen covering the peaks of the White Mountain range at the beginning of November that lasts until the end of May but rarely will it be observed in the plains. Knossos, moni Arkadiou and Samaria's gorge are just three of the most hystorical and beautiful places to visit in Crete.
Chania is located at the wester edge of Crete region. Chania town was built in 1252 by Venetians at the position of Minoic Kydonia. The Venetian port, the castle, the stone-made lighthouse, the cobble-stone pavements remind you another historic period.
History, entertanment and tradition are combined uniquily in the interesting arheological sights, the beautiful beaches and the graphic villages of the island. Accommodation in Neo Horio and generally in Apokoronas offer tranquillity and the unique chance to participate in different activities that take place during the whole year. Sunbathing, swimming, water sports, fishing, hiking and riding are some of the pleasures that one can get from the area of Apokoronas.
