Villa Archon located in a very small and safe traditional settlement just 12 km away from Paleochora a place with 18 Km of beaches of every kind and for every taste. Villa Archon is an imposing designed detached building consisted of two independent and at the same time one property. It is built in an inclined level which has as result of two independent ground floor apartments with two main entrances which are connected by an internal staircase. It is designed in such architectural way which can accommodate one or two families with the appropriate privacy. It is situated in an altitude of 550 meters that ensures a pleasant chill during the never-ending summer sun while captures magnificent mountain views as far the Libyan Sea. Due to the location 'Archon' can be used as a focal point for exploring the wild beauties and the untouched beaches of the southwest, or as a country retreat to loosen yourselves in the tranquillity and discreet luxury of the house. In order to reduce your cost for reservations until 4 people we offer the Upper part of the Villa which is 150sqm and we think that is more than enough. In that option all external courtyards, gardens, furnitures of the lower and upper level of the Villa will be in your disposal but you will only not have access inside of the lower level. We ensure you that respecting your privacy the lower level will not be rented to anyone else during your stay. The Upper level can comfortably accommodate a family of four and even more with extra beds. It is consisted of a 50sqm living and dining room with a traditional attic which can be used as an office or as an extra bedroom. A fully equipped kitchen area is separated and situated at a slightly lower level. At the same part of the villa there are two air-conditioned bedrooms and two well designed private bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king size stone-build bed and a balcony with an amazing view while the second bedroom has two comfortable traditional iron beds and a French door which leads directly to a peaceful yard. Α baby cot can easily be placed in the master bedroom free of charge upon request. The huge veranda beside the living room is furnished and has an unhindered view that is offered for a romantic dinner or lunch. For reservations for more than 4-5 people we additionally provide you the lower level of the villa. The Lower level of the villa has also a well equipped kitchen with a small living room. The Master bedroom is air-conditioned and contains a Queens’s size bed and a French door leads to a big fenced courtyard. The second bedroom has 2 bunk beds for the kids and a sofa which can easily be transformed into a baby cot. The bathroom is decorated in a country style and has shower. In our fenced court yards, verandas and balconies your Kids will have a break to get a chance to run, climb or jump while the adults can be recompensed by the unique smell of the Cretan nature as the local herbs and flowers will wake up all your senses. With patios on 4 sides you can seek sun or shade. The almost constant offered fresh breeze allows a respite from the never ending summer sun. The brand new swimming pool along with the kid's corner ensures endless hours of playing for the children and secure moments of complete relaxation for the grown-ups. For our little friends with no charge but on request we can provide safety doors and nets where necessary, baby cot, high chair are even a pram and of course a lot of toys for all ages so as the grown-ups to be more relaxed and careless. A welcome pack provided at no charge at the arrival including tea, coffee, sugar, fruit, mineral water, milk, olive oil and wine. Archon Villa is situated 12 km away from some of the best coastlines of Crete, in Paleochora village which also called as -The Libyan Bride- due to its natural beauties.

Interaction with guests
ArchonVilla is owned by Manya Kandanoleon and her family. It's an imposing designed building which constructed in 2008 for our family relaxation. It was made carefully by authentic materials such as stone and wood, with respect to the traditional Cretan architecture. In this way the villa remains cool even in the hot summer months. I am looking forward to welcoming you at the villa and I will be at your disposal during your stay. I emphasize on great hospitallity. It makes me really glad to have my visitors happy spending a beautiful time in the Villa and return home really refreshed.

About the neighbourhood
Archon villa,is located in one of the most beautiful and less developed regions of Chania in Crete Island. The Villa is located in a typical Cretan village called Prodromi, a small and safe traditional settlement, between the picturesque villages of Paleochora and Sougia. It is situated in an altitude of 550 meters that ensures a pleasant chill during the never-ending summer sun while captures magnificent mountain views as far the Libyan Sea. In 12 Km distance (15-20 min. driving) is Paleochora village a place that you can find everything. Restaurants, super markets, cafes, bars, water sports, banks, pharmacies, bookstores, doctors e.t.c. So far it keeps the right balance between tradition and tourism.
