Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay in Crete in your own private apartment on the 1st floor of our house. Your spacious, sunny, and tranquil private apartment with 2 balconies overlooks our organic olive grove, flower and vegetable gardens with your own parking space and separate entrance.
A unique property set on the edge of a small farming village, 3kms from the beaches of Maleme, 20kms west of the Venetian Harbour town Chania.
A great base to explore the west of Crete and/or work as a Nomad.

The space
SPACIOUS (42 sq meters) and fully equipped for self-catering, the Pine apartment is situated on the first floor of a British couples home who live here all year round.

IDEAL FOR NOMADS wanting to work remotely in the countryside, with WI-FI access in all areas around the house, inside and out.

PRIVATE PARKING and independent access to the apartments give guests the freedom to come and go as they please.

2 BALCONIES, a private rear balcony off the bedroom and a large front balcony off the kitchen, shower room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen.

AGRO TOURISM, run as a small holding/hobby farm offering the rural experience of village life, we have vegetable gardens, chickens, olive trees, a fabulous flower garden, a walled courtyard and abundant wildlife.

LOCATED conveniently but not too closely to the beaches of Maleme, 3kms away, Platanias, 5kms away or a short drive west away from the populated tourist areas towards Kissamos, Kolimbari and Rhodopos.

POPULAR destinations such as Paleochora, Sougia, Elafonisi and many more are just an unforgettable drive away, across west Crete's dramatic countryside and coastal roads.

IDEAL location for walkers, bird-watchers, history and archeology enthusiasts, offering the perfect base from where to explore or just to relax and enjoy the Cretan countryside.

We, the owners Helen & Sean, live here on this wonderful island all year round and can give you local information and advice on where to visit and how to get there, where to eat and much much more.
