“Crete,’ I murmured. ‘Crete…’, And my heart beat fast.” – Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek.
The great writer’s words echo popular sentiment – at least for all those who have been to Greece’s largest island. And though it could not be more Greek, Crete is really a country on its own, with its unique history, folklore, and traditions. If you are planning an escapade to one of its most popular destinations, Chania, then you should carefully consider where to stay, to get the most out of your visit.
An amalgam of Venetian, Ottoman and Byzantine influences, the old town of Chania is brimming with beauties and wonders – but it can get quite busy, even overwhelming. Holidays are, of course, meant to be relaxing, as well as exhilarating. Should you value your privacy and serenity, the best choice is to base yourselves, somewhere near the magic, but safely removed from the buzz and hubbub.
Spreading to the east of Chania, on the foot of the White Mountains, Apokoronas is one of the greenest – and most prolific – regions of Crete with olives, vines, avocado, orange, lemon and mandarin trees.
It is also home to some of the island’s most alluring attractions – including antique monasteries with captivating backstories; ancient Aptera, one of the largest and most powerful city-states since Minoan times; and Lake Kournas, Crete’s only freshwater lake – as well as a cluster of post-card pretty little villages, relaxed beach resorts, and stunning gorges and ravines.
This is the abode of the Adeste: A complex of four independent seaview luxury villas nestled on a hill between pristine countryside and the daily life of a quaint hamlet, just 28km off Chania town. And this sterling location – primed for relaxing holidays in the lap of nature, yet within easy reach to all landmarks and sights – is just one of the reasons why the Adeste is your best luxury villas choice in Chania. Here are some others:
