Villas Christina 1 & 2

CreteChania and the North-West › Kaliviani, near Kastelli/Kissamos

Two large detached villas in the unspoilt north-west of the island, within walking distance of a small village and local beach, and with easy access by car to the remote west coast

Standing just outside the small village of Kaliviani in the north-west of the island, these two identical villas are ideally placed for those keen to explore the undeveloped beaches of Crete's remote west coast, and for those simply planning to relax in peaceful surroundings. The village centre, which boasts a couple of traditional tavernas and a mini-market for basic provisions, is less than 500 metres away and thus within easy walking distance, and the nearest beach, Viglia, can also be reached on foot, being just 1 km away. For a wider choice or shops, eating places and other tourist facilities, the larger town of Kastelli - also known as Kissamos - is approximately 5 km away, and should you occasionally crave greater sophistication or the odd livelier night out, Crete's former Venetian capital Chania and the bustling beach resorts just west of the city can be reached by car in around 40 minutes. However, part of the joy of staying this far west is the palpable sense that you have left the developed stretches of coastline well and truly behind!

With four bedrooms each, these two detached villas are suitable for larger families or groups of friends. The interiors are practically furnished for carefree summer living and all the rooms have individual air-conditioning units. On the ground floor of each villa is a large living-dining room with a modern open-plan kitchen, complete with full-size cooker, microwave, large fridge-freezer, dishwasher and all the necessary small appliances and utensils. Two of the bedrooms (one double, one twin) are also on this floor, together with a shower room, whilst the remaining two bedrooms and the second shower room are found upstairs. Also on the upper level is a large terrace with extensive views across farmland to the wide bay of Kissamos, framed by the mountainous Rodopou Peninsula to the east and the even wilder Gramvoussa Peninsula to the west.

Standing in their own well-maintained gardens, the villas also have ample outside space at ground level, each boasting a covered dining terrace, a stone-built barbecue area and a good-size swimming pool (approx 40 sqm) surrounded by a sun terrace. The temptation to just spend all your days relaxing by your own pool is therefore understandable, but using the hire car that is included in your holiday it is possible to visit some of Crete's most splendid, undeveloped beaches. Falassarna on the west coast is just over 10 minutes' drive away, the stunning lagoon of Balos can be found at the tip of the Gramvoussa peninsula and the impossibly turquoise waters and white sands of Elafonissi in the island's southwest corner can be reached in roughly 45 minutes from here.
