About the property

Seven Bedroom Villa, Sleeps 16

Villa Chara is a 7 bedroom villa which sleeps up to 14+2 persons and is situated in Tersanas on the Akrotiri peninsula in western Crete. It sits idyllically on a hill top plot of about 3000sq mts surrounded by grass and flora and has magnificent uninterrupted views of the sea.

Tersanas is a small seaside village with a lovely, sheltered sandy beach. There are a few tavernas and small supermarket but within 1km the village of Horafakia has tavernas, and a couple of supermarkets.

Not too far away are the lovely beaches of Kalathas and Stavros. Stavros has an excellent sheltered sandy beach and is perfect for children. The famous cave of Leras is where Zorbas visited his friend Kazantzakis in the film ‘Zorbas the Greek’, and the stone house at the side of the beach was the home of Madame Ortance.

Tersanas is only 12kms from Chania, the region's capital city, and with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and beautiful Venetian harbour with characteristic pretty narrow streets, plentiful tavernas, cafes and shops, a visit to Chania should be near the top of any list of things to see and do whilst in the area.

With picturesque sandy beaches, centuries old monasteries and churches, impressive caves with rich lithological and archaeological interest, and historical monuments, the Akrotiri peninsula attracts many visitors every year, all of who enjoy Cretan hospitality and nature at their best.

If you wish to spend your days at the beach or by the pool and relax in a modern Mediterranean environment, then Villa Chara is the perfect place for your next holiday and an unforgettable stay in Crete.

The villa is situated at the North West part of the prefecture at a magnificent coastal location called Tersanas. The surrounding of the villa is about 3.000 square meters, half of which is planted with grass, while the other half is full of flowers, bushes, herbs and other plants that grow on the Cretan land.

The villa itself stands at a very idyllic point, at the top of a hill, without anything interrupting the view of the immense sea which is accessible through a private path, thus imparting you a sense of freedom and calmness. The whole scenery is very picturesque and of unique beauty.

Nearby, you will find three of the best sandy beaches of the northern coastline. A two minute journey by car to the small islet and fish restaurant of Tersanas Bay, a six minute drive from Kalathas sandy beach and a four minute drive from the famous beach of Zorba the Greek, Stavros.
