Villa overview - owner's description
3 bedroom villa in Chania
For a choice of three bona fide taverns the small village of Kato Horio at the head of the Dyktynna Gorge is just a 3km drive, whilst a 6km drive will bring you to the village of Malaxa where there are two taverns boasting a little more sophistication and amazing aerial views over Chania town and Souda Bay.
For basic necessities, the village of Kontopoula (5km) has a small mini-market, but for stocking up the larder there’s a really good supermarket on the outskirts of Souda that you will pass by on your way from Chania airport. It’s also worth noting that every week day a bread van delivers fresh bread to the village around 7pm.
Well off the beaten track as far as tourism goes, the small village of Gerolakos, nestles in the foothills of the White Mountains a mere 13km to the south of Chania, providing a perfect location to enjoy the natural untouched beauty of rural Crete, yet still be within striking distance of Chania and the beautiful beaches of Crete’s north coast.
Terraced on the hillside above the solitary road into Gerolakos, the Villa has been home to the owners family for more than 250 years and Nikos its present owner, has patiently spent the past 3 years transforming it into a quirky and comfortable ‘retreat’ retaining all the immense charm and history of the original building, whilst judiciously incorporating all mod cons.
An abundance of exposed stonework, plus rustic open staircases and wood flooring in the bedrooms create a genteel old world ambience, subtly set off by chic modern bathroom fittings and fascinating decorative touches. We loved the wooden bedroom balustrade with nautical style rope fittings held to the floor with a selection of ‘unlikely’ metal fastenings!
From the road side parking area, stone steps lead up to a high walled gateway to the property, with an entrance door opening onto the terrace where the 38sq. meter swimming pool is located. From here further stone steps lead up to the sunny main courtyard notable for its delightful covered terrace area with rustic table and chairs and mesmeric views up the valley towards the mountains.
