Welcome to Villa Venetiana
Located on The Akrotiri, an unspoilt
peninsular in Western Crete, is a beautiful sandy cove called Tersanas.
In the valley above the cove is situated Villa Venetiana very close to the village of Horafakia,
where there are a selection of both traditional tavernas and more modern restaurants, supermarket, and a Kafeneon/mini market
and all this is just 10 kilometres from the city of Chania.

Villa Venetiana Details
Villa Venetiana is designed in the Venetian style, with pink-washed walls, mosaic tiles and deep green woodwork, the typical colour theme employed in the old Cretan 'metochi' or manor house of the Venetian Aristocracy.
the Venetians would never have seen such an enchanted garden as that
created by Yiannis, the owner of Villa Venetiana,
who is a Cretan sculptor and artist.
Yiannis has been creating this uniquely imaginative whimsy as his monument and is constantly in search of unusually shaped rocks or stones to add to his creation. Minoan red pillars, vibrantly painted panels around the splendid pool and stone niches compete for the eye's attention with Yiannis' own sculptures.
Villa Venetiana is situated
near the village of Horafakia, a small village in the centre of The Akrotiri
Peninsular and close to Chania, the Airport and Souda Bay Port.
Horafakia is on the bus route from Chania & Stavros and has good local amenities with restaurants, supermarket, petrol stations and car rental all within a few minutes walk or drive from Villa Venetiana
The pace of life in Tersanas is still slow and sleepy so, with it's little sandy beach, easy access to Chania and in close proximity to a good selection of traditional tavernas.
Tersanas is an ideal choice for a relaxing holiday.
Villa Venetiana in Tersanas is the ideal solution for those without children to find true peace and relaxation.
The setting is wonderfully secluded, the
pool is gorgeous and
each of the eight maisonettes are
only ever rented to two adults so that the pool and gardens never become crowded.
