Located in a courtyard that once housed the archives of the Venetian administration
Next to the picturesque Chania Old Venetian Harbour
Fantastic views from its roof terrace of the harbour and beyond
Location is everything here. The house is tucked away in a historic courtyard of Venetian origins, graced with lemon trees, in the heart of Chania's old town. It is perched on top of a small hill in the most tranquil of spots. Yet it is only a five minutes' walk away from the bustle of the harbour and waterfront. All conveniences are close to hand.
The house itself is about a century old and has been meticulously restored, maintaining much of the original character, including traditional wood beamed ceilings, shutters, intricate plasterwork and wrought iron balconies. There is polished wooden flooring throughout, except for the ground floor which consists of white marble. A utility room just inside the entrance houses an oil fired hot water and central heating system. The house is on four floors, has two well equipped kitchens and bathrooms, three large double bedrooms and a wonderful triple aspect living room with sea views. But the piece de resistance, as far as views are concerned, is the roof terrace. From the terracotta tiled rooftop, spectacular and far reaching views can be found across the Aegean sea to the north, and the high mountains of the Lefka Ori, to the south. It is a great pleasure to while away the evening sitting on the rooftop, watching the sky move through an ever changing palette of colour as the sun sets behind the Rodopos Peninsula and the swifts swoop overhead.
The house is a gem.
