Nested in the heart of the most romantic historic town we have visited in a long time, Kores house (Ekaterina) ticks every single box. It has a wonderful roof terrace, from which we have enjoyed the glorious and warm October sun over many coffees and reading sessions, it has a beautifully manicured and exotic garden with a large dining table for secluded al-fresco family meals, and inside, it is stylish, comfortable and cosy. We loved the bathroom, particularly the shower, and Giannis, the owner, was ever so easy to deal with and helpful. We are very grateful we managed to secure the booking - I don't think it can get any better than this place in Chania.
We cannot recommend this gorgeous appartment enough, everything about it was perfect. Location in the old town couldn't have been better! everything close at hand from bars, restuarants, shops and the harbour, yet having the secluded haven of the garden to relax after all the sightseeing! The terraces are magical and it was pure luxury to have the choice of roof terrace as well as a private garden. The appartment exceeded our expectations and Ioannis was a perfect host. Really can't rate highly enough should not be missed!!
This is a beautiful little house right in the heart (at the higher end) of the old town in a quiet position close to well-known tavernas such as Tamam restaurant. It has a private walled garden downstairs and private roof terraces opening from the upstairs master bedroom, which is lovely and has views across the old town/cathedral.
The house itself is spotlessly clean and modern and simply and tastefully decorated. It has been well thought out and refurbished to a high spec in recent years.
Giannis, the owner, met us at the closest car park (5 mins away near the maritime museum) on a very hot August day and helped us with our luggage which we were able to store at the house while it was being cleaned as we arrived early. He was extremely helpful, polite, spoke excellent English and was on hand if needed.
We really love his house, it's spaces, decor, position, everything about it and will be back next year.
Exceeded my expectations. What can I say, loved the place❤️, location and Giannis the owner was a great host and always avaible to help. Truly recommend this place. My friends and I stayed in the Ekaterini suite.
Our second visit and this place is a gem. Stayed in ekeratina the bigger of the two suites. Roof terrace with loungers, sofas and table. Down stairs garden with outside dining fruit trees and herb garden. Cannot recommend enough . The owners are great and nothing is too much trouble. Stayed for a week and the old town is great for eating out and beach is nearby 10 mins walk.
The house does have stairs and not the best for people with mobility problems.
Next time we return to Chania we will return - but book early!!!
This was a fantastic villa, very well maintained, restored, and kept. The cleaner came in every 2 days, and kept the place spotlessly clean. The outside private gardens and terraces are well kept, private, and great for relaxing. The owners, Fani and Ioannis, were very helpful and welcoming. We couldn't have picked a better place for our 10 day stay. If we stay in Chania in the future, we would definitely stay here again. I would have no hesitation in recommending this delightful villa to anyone wanting independence, peace, yet within easy access to all local town amenities.
This is the third occasion in which my wife and I have stayed at Kores Villa 'Ekaterini' and now describe it as my 'home from home' in Crete. It is a simply wonderful house, with a beautiful garden and an amazing rooftop terrace with views of the town and the mountains. Despite its location in the old town, close by to all the many restaurants, tavernas, bars, cafes, shops etc, it is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. The owners, Giannis and Fanis are a delight, are very helpful and friendly and will do anything necessary to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The house is kept spotlessly clean by the delightful 'Mimosa', who despite not speaking one word of English still manages to make herself understood. The house is fully furnished and is fully equipped with all the neccesity's you need. The house is exactly as described on the web site, but is even better in real life than the description. We are already booked again for next year.
