Overview

About the property

Self-Catering Apartments in Rural Crete

A unique property set on the edge of a small farming village, 20 kms west of the historical Venetian town of Hania, on the beautiful Greek island of Crete.

JUST 2 self-catering apartments, each sleeping 2 people plus sofa bed for third person.

SPACIOUS (42 sq meters each) and fully equipped for self-catering, both apartments are situated on the first floor of a British couples home who live here all year round.

FREE WiFi and air-conditioning or heating, Arete is suitable for any season.

PRIVATE PARKING and independent access to the apartments give guests the freedom to come and go as they please.

2 BALCONIES PER APARTMENT, a private rear balcony off the bedroom and a large front balcony off the kitchen, shower room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. AGRO TOURISM, run as a small holding/hobby farm offering the rural experience of village life, we have vegetable gardens, chickens, olive trees, a fabulous flower garden, a walled courtyard and abundant wildlife.

LOCATED conveniently but not too closely to the beaches of Maleme, 3kms away, Platanias, 5kms away or a short drive west away from the populated tourist areas towards Kissamos, Kolimbari and Rhodopos.

POPULAR destinations such as Paleochora, Sougia, Elafonisi and many more are just an unforgettable drive away, across west Crete's dramatic countryside and coastal roads. IDEAL location for walkers, bird-watchers, history and archeology enthusiasts, offering the perfect base from where to explore or just to relax and enjoy the Cretan countryside. We, the owners Helen & Sean live here on this wonderful island all year round and can give you local information and advice on where to visit and how to get there, where to eat and much more. We happily take guests on local walks around the area and further afield for more adventurous walks, all free of charge.

Arete is fully registered and licensed with the Greek Tourist Board.

SUITABLE FOR WINTER RENTAL

Nettes, gepflegtes Haus in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Landhaus in einem Naturgarten mit Hühnern und Enten. Im EG wohnen sie (englischen) Eigentümer, im OG sind 2 Ferienwohnungen mit jeweils schöner großer Terrasse und einem wunderbaren Blick über Hügel und Olivenhaine. Die Wohnungen sind einfach, aber vernünftig ausgestattet. Leider ist die Abtrennung der Terrassen nur aus Holz, was etwas an Intimität fehlen lässt, denn man ist ja eigentlich immer draußen. Insgesamt gut zu empfehlen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review Mr Willenberg, our first on Owners Direct. We are very sorry to hear that you were not happy with the front terrace and that you experienced a lack of privacy. The large wooden wall separating the front terraces does not allow anyone to see you, but of course you can hear each other. However, we do hope that the private second balcony off your bedroom and the fact that there are only two spacious apartments for adults, plus the very reasonable price and access to a large courtyard with bbq, would make up for your disappointment. I believe it would be very difficult to find somewhere with the privacy you desired, for the price you paid, unless you booked a whole villa for yourselves and then it's not guaranteed. Kind Regards Arete.
