Description of Villa Zaimis
5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms
Villa Zaimis OverviewBuilt atop a steep hill spanning five levels of sleek and sophisticated architectural design, Villa Zaimis is a modern palace standing high above the historic Chania Old Town. The immaculately manicured garden and private pool provide guests with a stunning viewpoint across the Venetian harbour that is just moments from the house. Equally you are also only a matter of minutes from the golden sands of Western Crete’s much loved beaches. At Villa Zaimis there's such variety that each guest is bound to find their own personal joy, and there is enough space that your holiday can be just as communal or private as you like, with each room providing an idyllic setting for a different occasion. With so many memories to be made at the villa and such high-level services on offer, you might find it difficult to leave your comfort to explore all the island has to offer! Make sure you do though, as Crete is an island with a long and rich history, and so much sun-soaked natural beauty to discover.

Villa Zaimis LocationVilla Zaimis is located just outside the ancient city of Chania, a city that has seen many civilisations come and go over thousands of years of settlement, from Minoans to Romans, Byzantine to Ottoman, this rich history has carved out a unique and mysterious town. Most of the restaurants, museums, churches and craft shops centre around the gorgeous Venetian harbour, which represents a window into the past Turkish and Venetian architecture that has otherwise largely been destroyed by war. Watching the sunset past the old lighthouse is a truly unmissable experience, but the area offers a different picturesque aesthetic at any given time of day. The dramatic, mountainous interior of Crete is also well worthy of exploration, remaining unspoilt and largely unchanged for hundreds of years. Incredible churches, and sleepy little villages are hidden round every bend as you wind your way across the sun baked landscape. Be sure to sample the fresh fish they pull in from the harbour each day, or even take a boat out and do some fishing or snorkeling yourself!
