Crete is in the centre of the Eastern Mediterranean at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and Europe. At 200km from east to west and between 12 and 58km from north to south, it is the fifth largest island in Europe.

We live in the Apokoronas province of North West Crete, about 40 minutes from Chania’s Daskalogianni airport. Our nearest village is Kokkino Xorio (2.5km) where there is a shop and a taverna which are both open every day.

A fantastic place to stay. So relaxing.
Home away from home. Love it.

What an amazingly picturesque location .......a veritable hideaway from the elevated pace of city living and all set within an architecturally elegant setting.

The setting is gorgeous - completely cut off if you need a day relaxing, but close to small towns and the city, Chania, if you need a day trip. Stunning house.

Home away from home, ideal for families, having spent a week there with my 3 y/o I wouldn't stay any where else in Crete! Absolutely amazing!
