This penthouse apartment is in the tallest building at the highest point of Chania. It is a ten minute walk downhill to the Chania Courthouse Square (Platea Elefteria) where the fashionable meet for coffee and cocktails, and yet sheep are grazing in the hilly fields behind.
WINTER RENTAL: £1000 per month from November to April. Minimum stay one month. Electricity and service charges are not included in monthly rentals

The space
The decor is modern minimalist. In winter we sometimes use the penthouse for art exhibitions and the walls are always graced by the works of local artists. The main room is L-shaped and the well-equipped kitchen is in the left hand corner which overlooks a large terrace that faces the White Mountains. This terrace has a small pool with a waterfall, a barbecue, and and a roof garden with trees
.
The first bedroom has a king-sized bed with a next-door bathroom. The second bedroom has an en suite bathroom and two small double beds which can be used as`a very large double bed, 2 single adult beds, or two double beds for children sharing. The third bedroom can also be used as a study and has a double convertible couch and a desk. There is a further double convertible couch in the main room.

The rooms are air-conditioned and there is a glassed-in wood-burning fire place.

From the windows of the main room you look down on on the banks of an old riverbed and the picturesque village of old Lentariana where people still cultivate their market gardens.

To your left, a mile away, is the Venetian Harbour of Chania, the lighthouse and Kri-Kri Island.

This area of Chania is called Lentariana and it's on the coastal road from the airport to Chania. The area below us is called Chalepa; from our windows you can see the blue dome of its church and the many imposing mansions and consular villas gathered around the Venezelos residence. The marble palace of Prince George, the former governor of the island is next door. It is almost a ruin now, but the colours and the original character are still there.
The nearest place to swim is the Koulouris Rock Pool 5 minutes drive away. The nearest beach is an 8 minute drive away or a 15 minute walk along the river bed below the apartment.
Lentariana high street is a 5 minute drive away and has restaurants, coffee shops , a fish shop and a large supermarket. There is a local supermarket 5 minutes walkaway.

Guest access
The penthouse is the only apartment on the 10th floor. In the basement the penthouse has a lock-up garage for two cars and a large storage room

The villagers, who are living in the large, old family houses opposite this apartment block, still have year-round beautiful balcony gardens and from these they greet their neighbours and the men in vans delivering fresh fish, vegetables and bread. This area is a rich mix, and a good place to witness the resilience and kindness of the Greeks.
