Large Apartment with pool

Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Platanias, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Despina Villa is a stone's throw from the beach as well as offering easy access to shops, cafes and restaurants. A Mediterranean family villa, it's ideal as a base to explore the coast and island from. It's also within walking distance of lively Platanias Centre where cafes, restaurants, bars and shops abound, and even a club or two.

Water sports are available in nearby Agia Marina village and Platanias village. A hire car is not necessary but can be arranged locally if wanted for a few days' exploration of the island. Modern, efficient air-conditioned public transport runs every 20 minutes linking the coastal villages to East and West and historical Chania Town, making village-hopping easy and home-coming easier after a night on your feet.

Great apartment, very clean. It's in a great location, only a five minute walk to the beach. It has a lot of very good restaurants on the doorstep.

Villa Despina was perfectly prepared for our squad. We traveled with a large group of 12, including three children (five families). The rooms were clean and air conditioning worked fine. There was enough space in the garden for barbecue and night talking. The only problem...More

About the neighbourhood
The hills behind Agia Marina abound with olive and orange groves, providing plenty of opportunity for long country walks. Despina Villa is within 5 minutes’ walk from a mini-market, a bakery, and a few small restaurant-cafes (tavernas), a small water-sports facility, and of course the beach.

Walk only a few minutes further down the coastal road and you are in Platanias, a busy shopping centre lined with clothes shops, cheese-and-wine sellers, silver and gold jewellery stores, Greek artefact sellers, small ceramics factories, leather works, icon sellers, a supermarket, a mini-golf ground and 2 children’s play parks. Buses run regularly along the coastal road into Chania Town every 20-30 minutes until late in the evening. Half an hour away by car is a large new water park, and 2 hours’...
