One of the prettiest towns in Crete – if not the Mediterannean – Chania is a sterling destination with many joys in store: A scenic old harbour with Venetian mansions, ancient churches, mosques, and maze-like alleys to get lost in; jaw-dropping scenery with the majestic white mountains on the backdrop; traditional tavernas; elegant waterfront restaurants and cafes; quaint little shops with local arts and crafts; stunning surrounding countryside; ancient monasteries and a collection of iconic beaches.
After being cooped up for so long, this year you’ve done yourselves a favour and went ahead and booked your dream holiday at the Adeste luxury villas in Chania. You’re probably counting the days until it is time for take-off, and all this anticipation is surely very exciting. But to whet your appetite just a little bit further, here’s a sneak preview of what’s in store for you – right from the first day!
A warm, heartfelt welcome at the Adeste luxury villas in Chania
For starters, expect to be mesmerized by the scenery as you drive from the airport or the port of Sougia towards the verdant area of Apokoronas, on the foothills of the White Mountains. Nestled on a luscious hill, just off Kokkino Chorio – the scenic site of the Hollywood blockbuster, “Zorba the Greek” – our complex of luxury villas in Chania, consists of four sleek and stylish, modern holiday homes in absolute sync with their imposing surroundings. And despite their almost identical facades, each one sports its own character and allure, with one-of-a-kind artworks, individually designed furnishings and plenty of tricks up their sleeves: The latest creature comforts like Illy espresso machines and mini iPads, as well as private, sea view pools aside, the Adeste luxury villas in Chania, come with a BBQ, a fireplace or a hot tub, for an experience that goes beyond the ordinary.
This is after all the desideratum, for all of us at the Adeste: We think of our visitors more like invited guests – rather than paying customers – and to this end, we do our best to proffer hospitality of the highest order. It is, of course, our deep-seated tradition here in Crete: to treat strangers as friends, paying tribute to the ancient concept of “philoxenia”.
As soon as you set foot at your villa then, we’ll be there to greet you with an earnest smile and a bespoke orientation tour: Based on your individual preferences and needs, we’ll let you in on the must-sees and the hidden gems, suggesting personalized itineraries packed with activities that suit you, and yours, the most.
We also understand that after a long flight and a car drive, the last thing you want is to get back in the car and drive to the supermarket for supplies. So for your convenience upon your check-in, you shall receive a complimentary welcome hamper with breakfast essentials, seasonal fruits and a complimentary bottle of white. In fact, you need not ever worry about provisions – we can take care of groceries delivery throughout the duration of your stay, easily and quickly through our custom app.
Our aim is to pamper you at all times, and with that in mind we have put together a comprehensive array of bespoke services designed for ultimate indulgence: Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just life, with our chef on-demand service, you can have your very own culinarian concocting tailor-made meals in the privacy of your villa. You can also go for our packed lunch service, with 3-course menus featuring different Cretan specialities delivered to your doorstep every day; or our dining in-villa service – just like room service, you can have dinner from a local restaurant simply by picking up the phone, or using the Adeste app. And if you’re planning to spend all day on the beach, we’re here to help too – just ask us for a picnic hamper filled with local delicacies, glassware and flatware to take out with you.
But this is just the start. Residing at the Adeste luxury villas in Chania means basking in the lap of luxury – which in this day and age, first and foremost, translates to immersive, extraordinary experiences, that leave you with fascinating tales to tell. Therefore, our dedicated concierge is at hand to arrange everything for you – from the best tables in town to sailing trips, foodie tours, olive oil tastings, winery visits, hands-on cooking classes and even a romantic proposal dinner with the help of a private chef.
