“A Great Base In Beautiful Chania”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Myself, my wife, plus two friends stayed for a week at the end of May at Aspacia. We had read the tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed by the wonderful quirky house which served as our base for a delightful holiday. The Old Town at Chania is a beautiful holiday destination with approximately one square mile of ancient cobbled streets to explore, and with Aspacia ideally located right at the heart of it all, just 50 metres from the harbour. The owner, Giannis, could not have been more helpful. He answered all our queries promptly via email. He arranged our taxi from the airport and was waiting at the drop off point to show us to the house. He popped in occasionally to check if there was anything we needed. And he was there at the end of our holiday to see us back to the taxi. For us, the holiday revolved around Chania, and we had no need of a car. Most days we went to the beaches which are 20 minutes walk along the coast. The rest of the time was spent exploring the old town of Chania and eating out at one of the many restaurants which were all a short stroll away. One useful tip. You will probably want to purchase some supplies so ask Giannis to give directions to the large Carresfores supermarket which is just behind Aspacia on the other side of the old city walls. The back gate of Aspacia takes you to the top of the city wall with a short walk taking you down the other side into the new town where you will find the supermarket.

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed May 20, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

My husband and I stayed in Ekaterini with our almost 3-year-old and 4-year old daughters at the start of April. The house is at the top of old town-- so while being extremely convenient to restaurants, harbour, and shopping out of both the front and back exits-- it was very quiet, amazingly so. We really appreciated the layout-- the beautiful landscaped backyard was a great place to hang out and just relax while the girls ran around and played. The house locks up tightly at night, so while we slept in the upstairs bedroom, we never worried about the girls escaping! We were also very happy with the extra amenities-- from the wine, honey, butter, fruit, shampoo, hand-soaps etc. that were provided, they were nice, not a cost-saving token. We ended up tracking down and purchasing the same honeys and soaps for gifts and to take home with us! The housekeeper stopped by a couple of times, but was never intrusive. I am almost afraid to rave about the place too much because I worry that it will be fully booked the next time we return!!!!
The only thing I would worry about would be young crawlers/toddlers on the open stairs leading to the master, our girls just had to stay on the main floor, but they are older. I almost forgot to mention that the shower is really large and has great water pressure and the beds were comfortable. The furniture/cabinetry is nice quality also. They certainly didn't skimp on the restoration, and we really appreciated the house and all of its character. Finally, the owner waited for us, even though we were late and he was readily available to entire visit. We highly recommend KORES boutique; we are trying to convenience my parents to join us next time, to stay in the downstairs sister unit.

“perfect setting to enjoy Chania old town, fantastic host, rooftop views”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Booked direct with owner having found on Trip Advisor. All comms with owner by e-mail and phone were prompt and helpful. Well laid out apartment on two floors, with well tended sunny courtyard garden (also on two levels) and large suntrap rooftop balcony off upper bedroom, with views across the old town. On arrival, met by Giannis our host who could not have been any more welcoming and caring (as per all other reviews i have seen). Fridge held initial supply of mik and butter, and was well stocked with tea and coffeee making faiclities, and a welcoming bottle of wine. Apartment has been well restored from an old building, scrupulously clean on arrival, with linen changed for us mid week. Plenty of room for two couples to spread themselves out in. The apartment is 50 metres from harbour and less than 1 mile to nearest sandy beach. The rooftop garden was remarkably peaceful and quiet- no road noise or noise from any of the dozens of nearby taverna's- the windows are double glazed with heavy wooden shutters so i cannot imagine this would be an issue in full season for any but the lightest sleepers. To have suhc an excellent location, great views and also quiet when you want it, was just perfect for us.
