Live like a local in this pretty town house in the heart of Chania Town. With its whitewashed walls, bright blue shutters and wrought-iron balcony, Archondisa stands out from the crowd in what is already a picturesque street. From its street-facing balcony you can watch the bustling crowds go about their business. Or, if you’d rather, head to the Venetian-style home’s rooftop terrace simply furnished with sunbeds and a parasol. There you’re rewarded with a 270 degree view of the village, mountains and harbour.
Inside, Archondisa’s charm continues with its mix of antique-style beds, traditional furnishings and mix of wood and marble floors. The ground floor features a living room, fireplace, basic kitchenette and shower room. There are steep stairs to the second level twin bedroom, the third floor double bedroom and roof terrace. Since the house is in the heart of Chania’s plant-pot strewn streets, it’s only a three-minute walk to the local tavernas. And the beach and harbour, which is ringed with cafés and restaurants, is a 15-minute walk away.
