My husband and I had the best time relaxing at Samonas Villas! After a busy few days in Chania town we couldn't have picked a nicer place to relax and put our feet up by the pool. It was also great walking around and getting a true insight to how some of the locals live. A particular highlight was eating... More

After a night in an underwhelming hotel in Iraklio we headed west in search of our little villa in a little village. Some 25kh's from Chania up winding roads, perilous corners is the tiny village of Samonas where Konstantin has renovated some old villas transforming them into amazingly well appointed luxurious homes away from homes. With a pool, emergency food... More

We just returned from Crete after a vacation of 10 days. To drive smaller distances between the most important places to see in Crete, we decided to "divide" the island in 2, so we booked 4 nights in the East in a luxury resort in Agios Nikolaos, then in Samonas for 5 nights. We liked the idea of ​​combining luxury... More

There is nothing traditional about these villas. A few hotel rooms have been built in more of a settlement rather than a village. The road to Samonas is windy and narrow. It took us 45 minutes in daylight from Chania to Samonas. It is unthinkable to travel the same road after dark. After inspecting the accommodation and amenities with the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The traditional settlement of Samonas is a complete renovated neighbourhood in the village of Samonas, in the district of Apokoronas Crete, at an altitude of 400 m and at a distance of 25 km from Chania. All our dwellings are two-storey (maisonettes) with unlimited view to the mountains, valley and the sea. They are exclusively built in stone and wood to match their surroundings. Each is built at a different level due to the ground's steep slope, with common courtyards as well as independent verandas or balconies and quiet corners. They are decorated with many small folklore objects and antiques. All incorporate the same comforts and luxury, although they differ in size and layout.Here you will experience unique moments of relaxation and complete tranquillity in an authentically traditional area, without missing any of the comforts of the modern way of living, which we have quietly incorporated in all our dwellings. ... more   less
