Chania - Gerani Country Home

4 Bedrooms | Sleeps 8

Moroccan feel, pristine setting
rates from 2,500 €


This secluded hideaway stands in a pristine, natural setting just outside the picturesque village of Palio Gerani in northwest Crete. The location makes it an ideal choice for those wishing to get away from it all, while having the option of visiting the historic coastal city of Chania with its many attractions just a short drive away, or exploring other parts of this fascinating region.
The property is set off the main road, amidst lush gardens planted with orange and olive trees, but also more exotic banana trees and mango plants straight from India and Africa. Stretching for 2.5 km., a nearby sandy beach offers water sports and a contrasting alternative to the countryside peace and quiet of the property.


The two-storey house has been designed by a Moroccan architect in traditional style. Nearly all the materials, furnishings and decorative items are from the North African country, giving the residence a distinctly ethnic feel. This is not surprising, since the owner is a collector and dealer in primitive art from Africa and Asia. Each room has its own unique decoration. The ground floor features one bedroom with double bed, en-suite shower room, shaded patio and direct access to the verdant garden. In addition to a fully equipped kitchen, the comfortable living room offers a fine selection of vinyl and CDs with a focus on ethnic and jazz music, along with an interesting choice of books. There is also a bed in the living room that could be used by a third guest.
On the upper level there are three double bedrooms with one en-suite bathroom and the second is shared, plus a kitchenette. A spacious balcony affords sweeping views of the sea and the White Mountains.
