Description

Despina Villa is a stone's throw from the beach as well as offering easy access to shops, cafes and restaurants. A Mediterranean family villa, it's ideal as a base to explore the coast and island from.

The villa has its own private pool, 6 bedrooms (3 doubles, 6 singles), 3 bathrooms and light marble flooring throughout. Water sports are available in nearby Agia Marina village and Platanias village. A hire car is not necessary but can be arranged locally if wanted for a few days' exploration of the island. Modern, efficient air-conditioned public transport runs every 20 minutes linking the coastal villages to East and West and historical Chania Town, making village-hopping easy and home-coming easier after a night on your feet.

Further details outdoors

Three balconies with tables and chairs offer views over the village, over roof tops towards the sea and over a young olive grove to the south side of the villa. The outdoor swimming pool offers a welcome opportunity for a family splash together in the morning before the beach, or in the evening after a day's shopping. Mature palms and a banana tree in the garden provide some welcome shade on the sun-drenched pool-side terrace at the hottest time of day. The barbecue on the pool terrace means eating in doesn't have to be dull. Mini-market, shops, cafes, tavernas and bars are within 10 minutes' walk. Beach is 7-10 minutes' walk.

Location description from owner

The Chania Prefecture region

The city of Chania lies at the east end of the Gulf of Chania , a wide bay between the Akrotiri peninsula in the east and the Spatha peninsula (also called Rodopos) in the west. It covers a significant part of the small Plain of Chania and borders with the hilly suburbs of Profitis Ilias, Agios Mattheos and Kounoupidiana towards the east, with the villages of Vamvakopoulo, Nerokourou, Mournies and Perivolia towards the south and with the coastal areas of Chryssi Akti and Agioi Apostoloi towards the west.The city enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate , with sunny dry summers and mild rainy winters. During the period between April and October, clear-sky weather is almost an everyday feature. The atmosphere is always warm, but fierce heatwaves (temperatures above 38 C) are not very common, since the prevailing Etesian winds ("Meltemia") blow from northern directions and pleasantly moderate the conditions. Intervals of sunny days are frequent during the windy and rainy winter as well.

Platanias

The hills behind Agia Marina abound with olive and orange groves, providing plenty of opportunity for long country walks. Despina Villa is within 5 minutes’ walk from a mini-market, a bakery, and a few small restaurant-cafes (tavernas), a small water-sports facility, and of course the beach. Walk only a few minutes further down the coastal road and you are in Platanias, a busy shopping centre lined with clothes shops, cheese-and-wine sellers, silver and gold jewellery stores, Greek artefact sellers, small ceramics factories, leather works, icon sellers, a supermarket, a mini-golf ground and 2 children’s play parks. Buses run regularly along the coastal road into Chania Town every 20-30 minutes until late in the evening. Half an hour away by car is a large new water park, and 2 hours’ drive away is the historical Minoan Palace of Knossos where the infamous mythical Minotaur prowled in the underground labyrinth.
