The space

We have recently completed the renovation of "Margot's House", a delightful Venetian town house in the rather bohemian area of Splanzia, Chania, (pictured in the slideshow on the right, and on this page).

Close to 1821 Square, with its many outdoor cafes, Margot's House is typical of Chania's ancient stone-built artisan houses, stretching over three floors, and with a delightful roof terrace - and double doors from the bedroom leading to a balcony over the narrow street (too narrow for cars). The city centre of Chania is a 10-minute walk away.

Many of the original features have been preserved, from the huge stone bread oven in what is now the sitting room, to stone alcoves and doorways with intriguing decorative mouldings. New lighting has been installed throughout, so that the house is light and bright, and of course there is full air conditioning.

Margot's House can sleep up to six adults - one double bed, one single bed with pull-out secondary bed, and a sleeping platform in the sitting room - there is plenty of room for children as well (and remember that little ones stay free).

Margot's House has a fully fitted kitchen dining room on the ground floor, with cooker and sink, dish washer, washing machine and all the pots and pans you could need - even a coffee maker. There is a large fridge freezer too.
On the first floor is the beautiful sitting room with the stone oven and two stone alcoves, plenty of storage space, bookshelves (lots of books for you to read, as well) and interesting original oil paintings. The comfortable sofa becomes two beds when needed.
Stairs lead up to the bedroom with its double bed, wonderful Cretan carved bedhead, double doors to the balcony, and many Cretan decorative details.
Then a spiral stair (quite narrow - not suitable for the infirm) winds up to the roof terrace, which has a table and four chairs, and lovely views to the minaret of the Church of St Nicholas in Splanzia Square.

There are two shower rooms, each with WC, basin, and shower (the wonderful decorative Cretan tile-work was done by Lena herself). There is also a secure safe for residents' use.

Margot's House is very comfortable, and suitable for renting at any time of the year, winter or summer.

This house provides an opportunity to live independently in the most interesting and laid-back area of Chania, where you can explore narrow streets and alleyways, while away the hours at the multitude of cafes, tavernas and restaurants, yet you are just 5 minutes walk from the Old Harbour - the hub of life in Chania - and 10 minutes walk from the small sandy beach and multitude of coffee houses at Koum Kapi.
A gentle 20-minute walk will bring you to Chania's main beach at Nea Hora, with beach beds, parasols, many fish restaurants, and the wonderful shallow-beached sea.

See this page for the general rental rates (surprisingly reasonable, you'll be pleased to know) and contact Lena direct here to see if she has any special offers for the time you would like to stay. See this house on the map.

We had a great stay at House Margot. The house is in an excellent location, close to lots of restaurants and bars. The house was clean and comfortable with a lovely roof terrace. Lena was extremely helpful and prompt to respond to all our queries.

Lena's house was beautiful and was very pleasant to stay in. Because it was less sunny than usual, our solar water healer stopped working and we had less hot water, but Lena was able to show us very quickly how to regain hot water through the mains. I saw very little of her, but …
