The Villa is located in the village of Megala Chorafia, a picturesque hilltop village surrounded by green countryside, only 1.7 km away from the sandy beaches of the north Cretan coast and 9 km away from Chania. With the imposing White Mountains as a backstage scenery to the south and unobstructed views of the valley, until it reaches the sea to the north, the villa boasts splendid views to any direction.

Megala Chorafia is mostly developed into two cores; the first core, where the villa is set, is around the junction that leads to some of the traditional villages of Apokoronas (Samonas, Stilos, Provarma, Machairoi) and the second core is developed next to the hills of the ancient city of Aptera.

Within the village, you may find several traditional tavernas and a mini-market in less than a five-minute walk away.

In addition, the picturesque villages of Kalyves and Almyrida, with their marvellous sandy beaches and waterfronts, are located around 6.5 and 10km away respectively. There you may find an array of extra services, entertainment and activity choices, and anything one would need for a teeming vacation.

Moreover, the ancient city of Aptera, a worth-visiting archaeological site, is located on the plateau on the hill right next to Megala Chorafia, just a 15-minute walk away from the villa. Don't miss strolling around the hill, admiring the remains of the once major city-states of the Cretan civilization, dating back to the Minoan times.

The first epigraphic occurrence of its name is found in the Linear B tablets (14th - 13th century B.C.). The history of the city continued through the centuries until the 7th century A.D., when an earthquake destroyed it. Its ideal location was determinative for its development into an important commercial and political centre. By harbours, Kissamos and Minoa, located on both sides of Suda Bay, Aptera was able to control the naval activity. The era of the city greatest peak was the early Hellenistic period (late 4th - 3rd century B.C.).

The villa is well-located to make excursions in the nearby, traditional, countryside villages of Apokoronas district; in Stilos you can have a drink in the shady cafes, in the village of Samonas you may visit the lovely secluded church of Ayios Nikolaos with its fantastic medieval frescoes, you may admire the wild endemic flowers, unique in Crete, or walk through the many small gorges in the district of Apokoronas . With the villa as a base, you can also explore the rest of Crete since the distances are small and also Megala Chorafia is next to the National Highway, leading you everywhere in Crete.
