Luxurious stone villa in Crete

Villa - Entire home/apt · Chania, Kriti, Greece

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • It was just great! A very nice atmosphere, a beautiful house, nice materials and design. Thanks for 'breakfast' and coffee! We enjoyed our stay very much and would like to come back and stay a few more days longer. A very nice price for good quality!

  • the apartment was perfect for our one-week Crete experience.
    Perfect and peaceful location! We had everything we needed in the apartment, and Elina even provided us with a baby bed for our daughter. There also is an amazing restaurant at 200m away. Nice to relax there after a whole day of sightseeing. We found it a little sad that we didn't have a lot of sun on the (tiny) balcony, but maybe that was because of the time of the year. Eline asked the gusts of Patriko (the villa upstairs) if we could spend some time in the garden, and that was no problem. Thanks for a pleasant stay and maybe we come back to try Patriko ;-)

  • My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay in Elina's villa. It's even prettier than the pictures, and everything was clean and comfortable. We didn't meet Elina while we were there, but her father was there to welcome us and help us settle in. This apartment is a perfect gettaway for anyone looking for a change of pace. It's so peaceful and private! We couldn't get the internet to work while we were there, but it was no big loss. More time to explore! Thanks again to our great (website hidden). To any future visitors, make sure you check out the lagoon at Balos! It's close by and not to be missed.

  • Elina was a fabulous host and the stone villa was even better than expected! Elina was very easy to communicate with and answered all my questions very promptly. The villa was very clean and in great condition. I have already recommended the place to another traveler!

    March 2013
  • We enjoyed staying at the stone villa very much. The villa is beautifully finished and very comfortable. Elina's gifts of raki, olive oil and pastry were much appreciated. The local taverna makes this a particularly nice place to spend some time.

    February 2013
  • I LOVE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Beautiful house, relaxing time, incredible scenery. The restaurant/tavern in town must be one of the best on crete. I can't recommend this apartment enough! Will be coming back :)
