The space

Archon villa, an imposing designed building, is located in one of the most beautiful and less developed regions of Chania in Crete Island.

It is situated in the settlement of Prodromi between the picturesque villages of Paleochora and Sougia, built in an altitude of 550 meters, capturing magnificent mountain views as far the Libyan Sea.

Due to the location "Archon" can be used as a base for exploring the wild beauties and the untouched beaches of the southwest, or as a country retreat to loosen yourselves in the tranquillity and discreet luxury of the house.

The villa can accommodate up to two families in two separate levels but also offered a part of it for a single family.

The Upper level can comfortably accommodate a family of four and even more with extra beds.

It is consisted of a 50sqm living and dining room with a traditional attic which can be used as an office or as an extra bedroom.

A fully equipped kitchen area is separated and situated in a lower level.

At the same part of the villa there are two bedrooms and two well designed private bathrooms.

The lower level has a comfortable kitchen area fully equipped and a living room.

The Master bedroom contains a king size bed and a French door leads to the yard where the outdoor Jacuzzi is located.

We had a great time at Manya's house! Good location because although a bit isolated (and therefore very calm) was within easy reach to palaiochora and the other surrounding interesting places. Manya was very nice and helpful.

Everything about this villa is wonderful. The villa is absolutely beautiful, quiet, perfect location, spacious if you want to enjoy South West Crete with a group of friends and/or family. The gardens are beautiful, the views wonderful, very restful sleep, enough space for everyone to enjoy. And it is immaculate. The villa is perfect. And Manya is THE best host...I could write an extensive review just about her. She went beyond any ideas or expectations I could have had from her communication before we arrived, the incredibly warm welcome and guiding us to the place, the incredible fruits and food she left, assisting getting the lost luggage to the villa in a small village, coming after a few days and bringing wonderful local treats and then cleaning the villa (way beyond expectations). Through it all, she was incredibly helpful, quick to respond, very understanding, and she is just a wonderful person to meet and know. I cannot recommend this place, the location, Manya's hosting highly enough. I cannot wait to return.

Thanks for your hospitality, Manya

We went to see the second week of April primarily to see the wildflowers and we were not disappointed. We saw more wildflowers in abundance around the hamlet of Prodromi, on the tracks and olive terraces around Archon Villa than anywhere else we visited. You are free to walk wherever you want and you can easily walk to the well known E34 walking track along the coast. The villa is well equipped and very comfortable with very pleasant outdoor eating areas. Manya our host was very friendly and hospitable, she could not have been more helpful. It takes around 20 minutes to drive very slowly down the twisting mountain road to Paleochora, enjoying the views and plants that spill over the sides of the roads along the way. It was so quiet in April, we hardly ever passed another car going to and from the hamlet into town. In Paleochora you'll find a whole range of tavernas and cafes. Though the two vegetarian cafes were not open when we visited, there was plenty of vegetarian dishes on the menus of other places. Two well stocked supermarkets can also be found here.

We had a fantastic time in Manya's beautiful house, and she did everything she could to make us feel welcome from helping us arrange trips around the island to even bringing us some very tasty food which she cooked herself and olives and olive oil from her own garden. The house is very large and comfortable and the outdoor areas are great. The surrounding area is great for walking in, and we even saw wild eagles literally flying over the house. The village of Prodromi is very small with no shops or facilities, so make sure you bring enough supplies when arriving. The location greatly adds to the charm of the house though, and makes the extra distance totally worthwhile.

Villa très confortable, loin de la foule Nous avons été tres bien reçu par notre hôte. Manya a toujours donné suite à nos questions rapidement, la maison était très propre, bien équipe, un accueil agréable avec même un premier repas pour nous. Une attention appréciée. Une portion de la route pour se rendre à la mer n'est cependant pas de tout repos. Un peu éloigné de tout. Merci Manya

Nous avons passé un séjour mémorable, reposant, agréable, dans un village pittoresque et surtout dans une maison magnifique, avec des prestations de grande qualité. Un énorme merci à Manya pour son accueil si chaleureux, ses attentions et sa disponibilité. Un réel paradis pour les enfants (jeux, espace, calme) et les parents! Profitez sans hésiter de cette pépite!
