In our quest for quality properties with character and style, it was indeed a pleasure to come across Villa Leska. Located a 10 minute walk Megala Chorafia , a sleepy and beguiling village just 5km from the gorgeous sandy beaches of Kalives, the fascinating, historic building has been sympathetically preserved through a sensitive, lovingly crafted restoration.

Tucked away to the rear of the house is a charming garden enclosed by mature shrubs and trees.

It offers privacy and quiet and features three bedrooms (one on the top floor and two on the ground floor) two bathrooms and kitchen/living and dining area.

The stone pool terrace, hosts a lovely pool, and the old trees provide dappled shade.

A comfortable mix of traditional and contemporary styles, the living accommodation seamlessly integrates comfort alongside traditional, characterful features which offer the unique feeling of being at home! From the ground floor twin bedroom and double bedroom, patio doors open onto the front terrace, whilst upstairs the delightful double bedroom has a terrace with far-reaching views across the surrounding Apokoronas countryside and the sea of Souda Bay.

A 10 minute stroll brings you to the leafy village centre. Bordered by orchards and olive groves, magnificent views to SoudaBay and the White Mountains imbue it with a rarefied air. Megala Chorafia have three local tavernas that specialise in homemade Cretan cuisine, while a mini-market and kafenions, create a sense of community. ApteraCastle and the old theatre, is a magnificent and very important ancient site, located 1.5km from the village center of Megala Chorafia, an easy and beautiful country walk from the villa.

Undisturbed views to Souda bayAptera is a beautiful small village near the famous Aptera Castle (to which you can walk from the villa) located above the bay of Souda. The village itself has a couple of small shops and several tavernas offering delicious locally made food from organic produce. The village belongs to the region of Apokoronas. The nearest beach to the villa is a small, almost private beach, below Kalami. There are several other sandy beaches within a short drive (Kalives 3 kms, Almirida 7 kms etc). Chania city is just 15 km away.

One of the most prominent attractions of the area near Villa Poppy is the archaeological site of ancient Aptera about 2,5km to the east.The site is now maintained by the Greek Ministry of Culture, Department of Antiquities. The hilltop, about 150 meters above the sea, commands views of Souda Bay and the Akrotiri Peninsula to the north, the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) to the south, and Kalives and the Turkish Itzendin Castle to the east. Several structures within the monastery enclosure are in excellent condition, including a chapel and a two-story block of cells. The surrounding site is notable for a two-part temple from the 5th century BC, a large three-vaulted Roman cistern, Roman baths, and parts of several Doric temples. An ancient theater is being excavated.

Just 3km from Aptera you can enjoy the sea at the sandy beaches of Kalives, Almirida and Kalami, or taste the fresh fish in local taverns.

In Megala Chorafia there is a mini-market, a traditional “kafenion” and three tavernas with excellent food…

It was difficult to find the house but when you found it you do not want to leave any more ! a very plaisant place and we will return here another time if we can. The village of Aptera is charming and restaurants are there very nice; the beach of Kalyves is beautifull. All is ok to have a good stay.

This villa was perfect in every way, the facilities were excellent and the furnishings sympathetic to the age and character of the house. The view of the bay was fantastic and the swimming pool and hot tub much appreciated by the younger members of our group. Being slightly away from the main village it was beautifully quiet and restful. We had stayed in this village before so knew it quite well, but for those new to the area it is good to know that there are several good restaurants as well as a small supermarket. As well as being in… Read more »

We were 2 couples and 1 baby. The house was perfect for us: beautiful, authentic, all you need, wonderful view, nice village, not far from Chania, very quite…
It was very difficult to go out and visit Crete with a house like that! we were so happy in it!
We will surely go back there, no doubt!

Dear Ariadne, Just a brief message to tell you that we had a wonderful time at Villa Poppy last week. The house was even better than we expected, the weather was perfect and we had a great holiday. We have been to Crete a number of times before, but this was probably the best visit. Could you please thank Sandra for coming to see us and for her useful advice. We went to the restaurant that she recommended in Kalives, and it was excellent. We very much hope that we will be back next year. In the meantime thank you… Read more »
