This is a lovely house, with a beautiful outdoor area. The owner takes good care of his place, and want you to do the same. If you appreciate a nice home (and to treat it well), this is the place for you. Everything in the house is clean and fancy. The pool area is absolutely perfect and the kids, and the parents;), loved it. The villa is located in the countryside/rural surroundings, in a more quiet part of Crete. The farmers will come with the sheeps by the road in the morning, and the sunset is quiet and beautiful. At first I thought that it maybe was too far away, but it was the best place to be for us. The perfect place to get away, relax and enjoy. We had a car and went to Chania (10/15 min drive) a couple of times, a nice town in the old town (just keep away from the most tourist areas near the harbour;). We drove to Agia Marina, Kato Stalos and Platanias, and we were so happy we didn't ended up living/staying there. So busy and too much tourist area for us. Going back to lovely Kalathas, the house and not to forget, the Kalathas beach, was fantastic. The beach is so nice and charming with soft sand and shallow -perfect for the kids. It was clean, had a little kiosk to buy milkshake or cold beer, and a charming tavern serving local food. Sunbeds to rent if you want.
We were welcomed with some food and wine at the arrival, and the owner showed us the area and nearest supermarket where you can buy everything you need (not far to drive). We loved our stay in this beautiful villa, and maybe we will come back one day:)
