We just returned from our second stay at Samonas. We find it the most relaxing place we've been to in our lives. Konstantinos, the host, goes out of his way to make the stay something special. Nesteled in the hills outside of Chania, the windy road up has spectacular views. Once there, the only sounds you hear are the roosters and the goats. No speeding cars, loud music, nothing like that. Just natural silence. The accomodations are excellent, with pretty much everything you need. And if it isn't in the room, it's in the attached store - just take what you want and pay what you think it's worth! Find THAT somewhere else! It's a nice day trip to Elafonissi, one of the best beaches anywhere. Or take a day trip to see the wonders of Chania. Or just relax and be pampered. We can't wait to go back again, and next time we stay longer! And don't forget to sotp in one of the local tavernas- you'll be treated like an old friend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The traditional settlement of Samonas is a complete renovated neighbourhood in the village of Samonas, in the district of Apokoronas Crete, at an altitude of 400 m and at a distance of 25 km from Chania. All our dwellings are two-storey (maisonettes) with unlimited view to the mountains, valley and the sea. They are exclusively built in stone and wood to match their surroundings. Each is built at a different level due to the ground's steep slope, with common courtyards as well as independent verandas or balconies and quiet corners. They are decorated with many small folklore objects and antiques. All incorporate the same comforts and luxury, although they differ in size and layout.Here you will experience unique moments of relaxation and complete tranquillity in an authentically traditional area, without missing any of the comforts of the modern way of living, which we have quietly incorporated in all our dwellings. ... more less
