Description of the Chania vacation villa rental
“The House by the Sea” - a country house in a lovely quiet position situated behind the middle of Chrissi Akti Beach near Chania. From most of the spacious rooms in the house there are panoramic views across the sea to the small island of Lazaretta and the town of Chania. The traditional main building, just 10m from the beach, one of the oldest in the area, has been carefully renovated to preserve its character.

There are two independent houses with a shared courtyard and garden

Both houses are furnished and decorated with style and good taste and have a designer look. The prospect of a totally relaxing holiday in Crete close to nature is completed by the beach, patio and garden.
“The House by the Sea” is located directly in front of the majestic Chrissi Akti Beach on the north side of Crete. The idyllic beauty of Chrissi Akti Beach is known by all. The beach has Blue Flag for many years.
Stretching for over one kilometre, Chrissi Akti is blessed with pure and natural golden sand. The water is shallow so it is safe for children. The island in the middle is visible from a great distance and it can be visited by boat.
Chrissi Akti is an convenient area, 7 minutes' drive from the centre of Chania (a town that stays alive even in winter), where you can enjoy a rich night life, good food, shops and marketplaces and you can find pretty cobbled Venetian streets lined with shops. A 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from the house, there are great restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets ranging from those providing local cuisine to the more international choices.
Walking 300m up the beach heading west, you arrive at Agioi Apostoloi nature area where you find two sandy beaches, a park with a playground, a small forest of pines for walking, jogging, and picnics. Also there are family restaurants, big & small supermarkets, and tourist and car rental offices in the surrounding area.

Many other beautiful beaches are around, such as Glaros, Aptera and Kalamaki.

It’s a good base if you want to be close to town without being in it. It’s also very useful if you have children (the beaches are safer than most beaches on the northwest coast). The beach is a sandy cove with clear water, well organised, with canteens on the beach as well as facilities for swimming and sunbathing (sun beds, umbrellas, sea sports etc). Informal volleyball games can also be played in the afternoons and body surfing and windsurfing atop the waves is possible. During the summer season a lifeguard is on duty.
