In about 16 km. from the city of Chania-Crete, there is a fully equiped appartment (A/C, TV, Wi-Fi, central heating),available all year, with 1 bedroom, bathroom and kitchen with sitting room with sofa-bed for an extra person. It has a wonderfull view to the "white mountains"(Omalos) and is only 7 km from the beach Platanias and Stalos.The beach of Platanias is a large sandy (website hidden) is organised all along its length, with sun loungers and umbrellas.Stalos beach is also a very long and sandy beach with a tourist-aimed waterfront. In fact, Stalos beach extends for so long that if you prefer some tranquility, there are areas that don't get so crowded.If you want to explore the whole island i would recommend to rent a car.The apartment is located in a very quiet area so if you need a quite place close to nature in a friendly enviroment we are sure you 'll come to the right place!!!If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.

We had a wonderful stay in Hawk Hill Cottage! Their apartament is modern, well-kept, and clean. There's a nice veranda with an amazing view where you can rest having an aperitif or dinner after a long day travelling around. The apartment is well situated, close to Chania and from which is easy to reach any part in the west and southwest of the island.
As hosts, Sofia and Theo were superb. We arrived really early but they came to pick us up to lead to the house. They left us homemade jams, raki and fresh local food in the fridge. They provided also towels for the beach and guidebooks on Crete. Furthermore they were really helpful and kind, giving us a lot of suggestions about hikes and explorations.
We had a great time and really recommend their apartment. It's a wonderful place far from the crowd of tourist where you can enjoy the real cretan atmosphere and the hosts are fantastic.

We had a wonderful stay with Sofia and Teo up on the hill in Koufos! Their home is beautiful, well-kept, and afforded stunning views. We truly felt a part of the local culture while there. As hosts, Sofia and Teo went above and beyond, stocking their fridge with fresh, local foods, providing towels for the beach, and numerous guidebooks on the area. We highly recommend staying with them for a unforgettable experience on Crete!
This was a peaceful little paradise for our honeymoon. Hania was great, but being a few miles outside Hania in a peaceful area with great views was much better for us. The place is even better than the photos. Sofia made sure everything was perfect for us and her hospitality and generosity went above and beyond anything we'd experienced before.
We had a great time at Sofia's and Theo's place in Koufos. We arrived with our 3 year old daughter and thoroughly enjoyed Sofia's and Theo's hospitality. The apartment is modern and clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and more: home-made jam, olive oil and fruit were waiting for us, as well as milk and butter in the fridge.
The beds are comfy and we woke refreshed, hearing birds sing and numerous roosters in the area crow.
The apartment is far from the hustle and bustle of nearby Chania, but it's easy to reach both Chania, as Akrotiri or even Sougia on the south coast.
Our highlight was a dinner together with Sofia and Theo in a lovely taverna in neighbouring village Vatolakkos, where we had a great time discovering the local cuisine and chit chat with our hosts.
All in all we thouroughly enjoyed our time in Koufos and will be back soon!
Sofia and her husband were great hosts! The apartment comes stocked with local products and food for breakfast which is great! Good wifi connection, good water pressure. The apartment is located in a great part of the region allowing for easy access to some of the most beautiful locations in Crete. We highly recommend it!
