"Margot's House" - Splantzia (Old Town)  -  www.traditionalvillaschania.gr  -  e-mail:  lenachania@hotmail.com

We have recently completed the renovation of “Margot’s House”, a delightful Venetian town house in the rather bohemian area of Splantzia.

Close to 1821 Square, with its many outdoor cafes, Margot’s House is typical of Chania’s ancient stone-built artisan houses, stretching over three floors, and with a delightful roof terrace – and double doors from the bedroom leading to a balcony over the narrow street (too narrow for cars). The city centre of Chania is a 10-minute walk away.

Many of the original features have been preserved, from the huge stone bread oven in what is now the sitting room, to stone alcoves and doorways with intriguing decorative mouldings. New lighting has been installed throughout, so that the house is light and bright, and of course there is full air conditioning.

A gentle 20-minute walk will bring you to Chania’s main beach at Nea Hora, with beach beds, parasols, many fish restaurants, and the wonderful shallow-beached sea.

"Margot's House" is located 16 km away from the airport and 7 km from the Souda Bay seaport.

Close (about 1100 m away) is the main bus station of Chania from which you may reach every village and all the nice beaches of the prefecture.

Car and motorcycle hire can also easily be arranged for you, also from the airport if you wish.

Any booking requests here.

"Margot's House" can sleep up to six adults - one double bed, one single bed with pull-out secondary bed, and a sleeping platform in the sitting room - there is plenty of room for children as well (and remember that little ones stay free).

It has a fully fitted kitchen dining room on the ground floor with cooker and sink, dish washer, washing machine and all pots and pans you could need - even a coffee maker. There is a large fridge freezer too.

On the first floor is the beautiful sitting room with the stone oven and two stone alcoves, plenty of storage space, bookshelves (lots of books for you to read, as well) and interesting original oil paintings. The comfortable sofa becomes two beds when needed.
Stairs lead up to the bedroom with its double bed, wonderful Cretan carved bedhead, double doors to the balcony, and many Cretan decorative details.
Then a spiral stair (quite narrow - not suitable for the infirm) winds up to the roof terrace, which has a table and four chairs, and lovely views.

There are two shower rooms, each with WC, basin, and shower (the wonderful decorative Cretan tile-work was done by Lena herself).

"Margot's House" is very comfortable, and suitable for renting at any time of the year, winter or summer. There is also a secure safe for residents’ use.

This house provides an opportunity to live independently in the most interesting and laid-back area of Chania, where you can explore narrow streets and alleyways, while away the hours at the multitude of cafes, tavernas and restaurants, yet you are just 5 minutes walk from the Old Harbour - the hub of life in Chania - and 10 minutes walk from the small sandy beach and multitude of coffee houses at Koum Kapi.
