Arete Self-Catering Apartments West Crete



Updated: 16-Jun-2016
Self-Catering Apartments in Rural West 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.

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.
