Description of Villa Peristeri
6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms
Villa Peristeri OverviewLocated just five minutes from Koutalas Beach, the spacious Villa Peristeri offers peace and quiet with no neighbours in the immediate area. East of Kokkino Chorio, the villa is a great base from which to discover northern Crete, with Chania around 40 minutes’ drive away. You can enjoy the use of a heated pool and hot tub among many more facilities.
The extensive outdoor space at Villa Peristeri gives everyone room to do their thing. You will find a barbecue area, a soccer field, sun terrace, children’s playground, pool table and a variety of seating and dining areas, in addition to the hot tub and the centrally positioned pool. The beautifully green surroundings add to the sense of space and privacy, and you can enjoy these areas day and night without worrying about disturbing anybody.
The accommodation is comprised of two villas. The first has four bedrooms, while the second is a more intimate affair with one bedroom and a loft. The total capacity is therefore 12, but there is scope to accommodate up to four more people on sofa-beds, and even a couple of extra children on single beds. Both of the villas are wheelchair accessible.
Rustic meets modern inside, with attractively furnished areas throughout the house. Multiple dining areas make this a great place to entertain your friends, while the en suite bathrooms have a romantic feel. An upper terrace overlooks the pool and is a lovely spot to enjoy a drink before bedtime.
All sorts of events and activities can be arranged for you during your stay. Whether you need the services of a chef or masseuse, babysitting, breakfasts or even a birthday party, virtually anything is possible. Weddings and other large events can also be held at the villa.
Kokkino Chorio has coastal favourites like the Elephant Cave and Zeus Bay within reach, with a boat trip along the coast the best way to discover them. Towards Chania, you can also enjoy days out at attractions like the Botanic Gardens of Crete and the popular Aqua Creta water-park.

Villa Peristeri LocationKnown for its Venetian harbour and striking lighthouse, Chania is the jewel of Crete’s north coast. Iconic landmarks like its Ottoman Baths make Chania incredibly photogenic, and exploring the Old Town and dining on the restaurant terraces are sure to be part of your visit. While you’re there, you will probably want to throw in a boat trip too. Various tours showing off the beautiful Cretan coastline are easy to find.
Several beaches are within walking distance of the city, and many more are not too much further. Golden Beach and Neo Chora are family-friendly but sometimes busy. Some of the island’s best requires a longer drive, but are well worth it – Balos, around 60km from Chania, is one such gem.
In town, you will find museums dedicated to archaeology and local folklore, and there’s a maritime museum down by the water – walk along the seawall to the Venetian Lighthouse and experience some of Chania’s most striking views.
The Crete Botanic Park and Gardens sit beneath the White Mountains just outside the town. Wandering through the park filled with exotic flowers and herbs is a sensory experience. Other notable sights include an impressive trio of monasteries on the Akritori Peninsula, Agia Triada. If you are looking for something high-energy, the Aqua Creta water-park at Limnoupolis should do the trick; Chania also offers plenty of nightlife.
Crete is perhaps surprisingly large for an island – it could take you more than five hours to drive across it. North to south is considerably quicker, and it should only take about an hour to reach the wonderful Samaria Gorge, a picturesque area ideal for walking and hiking. The island’s wonderful scenery can also be enjoyed via a guided tour, many of which also cover local crafts – you may get to see how products like olive oil, honey or Cretan wine are produced.
