Overview

3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Chania Prefecture, Crete
Vouno villa (Mountain villa) is a tastefully furnished 3 bed villa and was built out of local stone using traditional methods, finished to the very highest standard.

The pool and pergola'd BBQ terrace are set up above the house, further up the hillside where you can while away the day in the pool whilst the eagles soar above your head or enjoy the nightime atmosphere with the blanket of stars above your head and the lights of the Venetian city of Chania twinkle down the bay. The house has two beautiful verandas at the front, one downstairs where alfresco eating is a pleasure and one upstairs that stretches the full width of the house and is furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs. It also has a covered veranda at the side of the house, for shade from the sun. Also now with WIFI.

The pool area, as mentioned is set further up th...

Interaction with guests
If you decide you would like to book the villa, a booking form and contract will be emailed to you once the deposit has been paid (The rental company hold this and your balance until you are in the property); We ask that guests would print out a hard copy of this and send it back to us as it is now a requirement of Greek law that all rental properties and their guests be registered. We are more than happy to have a chat with guests about where they would like to go/see and if we can help in any way, we will. The Villa EOT number is 1058108

About the neighbourhood
Chania is a Venetian city full of a mix of cultures and influences left from rule by the Venetians, the Turks, and more recently from the German occupation in WWII. Near to the house is the fort of Apetera which is thought to be around 4 thousand years old, and if you wander around both Chania itself and the large village near to the house, of Almyrida, you will easily see the excavation sites and beautiful mosaics on the floors of ancient villas inhabited by Cretean people of long ago.
The monastry below the villa has a series of caves which lead up eventually to an old German WWII bunker, this should only be attempted by those brave enough, with a torch and a love of small furry rodents!

The village of Kokkino Chorio itself is where the village scenes for Zoba the Greek where filmed in...
