it is a cave from natural rock that at previous years was used as a house by the family in the beginning, and as storage of agricultural products much later. In 2007 after careful renovation and rebuilt, it became a luxurious studio of 60 square metres that can host up to two adults and two children. The studio is complete with dining room, kitchenette, TV and AC. A beautiful balcony reveals the view of Kissamos bay and the mountains that lie in the background.
The apartment lies in the village Kaliviani and has a stunning view of Kissamos bay. It is very close to the unique lagoon of Balos and the famous beach of Falasarna.
It is located 45 kilometres away from Chania and 55 kilometres from the airport. Kissamos port is just a five minute drive and Falasarna 10 minutes away. Very close to the villa are many smaller beaches.
The towels are changed 2 times in a week and we offer upon arrival a welcome basket with local products.
Hiring a car is recommended.

We had a wonderful week in this very special apartment.
Despite Easter Saturday evening and a delayed flight Elina and her parents had everything prepared for a warm welcome. Self-prepared tarts any necessaries for a great first day of vacation were ready.
Kalivyani is a suitable great place to explore the West of Crete. Many opportunities for hiking in the mountains and swimming are easily accessible.
The apartment is very well equipped and you will miss nothing. The balcony is an ideal place to relax in the evening in this quite village. Elina was always available and was able to give good tips and advice.
We highly recommend Elina as host and the Stone Villa for exploring the west of Crete.
Thank you Elina
a highlight as a appartement in crete!!!!!!
everything in best condition and clean!
very helpful and friendly oner!!
First, we found the villa hard to find, but then we had a nice time there. Elinas mother and her husband welcomed us. They were very helpful and nice. The room is beautiful furnished and very quiet. We booked in April and the wether wasn't bad but it was pretty cold in the villa. We would not recommend the villa for the spring time, but in summer it's probably just perfect.
I am truly sorry that I now realized that you didn't enjoy your stay as much.
In the house there is A/C that you could use in order to heaten up the space.
The house is located in a small village away from the touristy crowds and thats why I sent you a detailed map on how to reach it. Moreover my parents were there waiting for you and they could have picked you up from a central point if you had asked for it.
Wish you a happy spring,
Elina was very accommodating and the space we rented was amazing! Thank you Elina, it was a wonderful end to our honeymoon. :)
Very cosy and romantic. We really enjoyed our stay in the cave. It is definitely one of the most unique accommodations we've stayed in with airbnb. The views are also amazing- right down to the sea. Definitely visit the peninsula- it's beautiful.
The cave balcony is quite cool and shaded in the day- perfect for the height of summer but a little chilly out of season.
Overall we highly recommend this place and will definitely come again. The host is also one of the friendliest and most responsive we have dealt with.
Great place, quiet and peaceful. Beautiful house, every possible thing you could need + food! So considerate as we arrived late and on a holiday so no markets open...
Host was amazing and responsive. The best of Cretan hospitality. Make sure you drive out into the Balos protected area around the tip to the Balos Beach!
We recently had a wonderful time in the stone villa in Kaliviani.
We really enjoyed the private, calm and charming atmosphere, the loving interiour and the special room experience next to the stone walls. We liked to be such close to the green hill in front of the balcony.
We also have to thank the parents of Elina, because of their helpful behaviour and delicious snacks. They also invited us to their eastern celebreation in the main house. We enjoyed to stay with Elina and her family at the beautiful terrasse with the great view and the delicious meal!
We can really recommend this place for every people, who like to relax in a nice little village and a quiet private place. There are excellent beaches and attractions around!

I m 26 and work as a teacher in Crete. When I m not in the school, I like riding my bike , crafting, making pastries and sewing. I, also, love to travel, cook and receive people in my home. I know travelers wish to try out what is real and typical, and since not everybody has friends as tourist guides, this type of stay will help you avoid tourist traps and discover what to do during your stay at Chania, while enjoying a wonderful home.
