The space

Close to 1821 Square, with its many outdoor cafes, House Minoos is typical of Chania's ancient stone-built artisan houses, stretching over three floors, and with a lovely balcony with views over the nearby sea. The city centre of Chania is a 10-minute walk away.

Many of the original features have been preserved, and there is an enormous and very traditonal Cretan wood-burning fireplace in the kitchen/sitting room. New lighting has been installed throughout (some with Lena's special touches) so that the house is light and bright, and of course there is full air conditioning. There is also a secure safe for residents' use.

House Minoos can sleep 5-6 adults in two double bedrooms, one with an additional single bed, and each with its own shower room, and there is a further bed area downstairs. Children can be fitted in, and remember that little ones stay free at Lena's houses.

House Minoos has a fully fitted kitchen dining room on the ground floor, with cooker and sink, washing machine, and all the pots and pans you need. There is a large fridge freezer too.

The decor is traditional Cretan, with many interesting antiques and ancient artefacts collected by Lena over the years.

The exceptional sea views and closeness to the exciting Old Harbour area of Chania are particular features of House Minoos. This is a house that is set in a narrow and fascinating street among houses belonging to the local people - a place to soak up the real atmosphere of Old Chania.

The house was in a wonderful location, right near a beautiful small square with restaurants and bars which was lively at night. And very close to the main old Barbour restaurants/bars. The house itself was charming but lacked a little bit of comfort: the three flights of stairs …

Lena was most helpful when we contacted her. The house was perfect for us as we were two couples. It met our expectations. We loved the location which was close to everything but just out of the tourist zone. Everything was only a short walk away. Hopefully we will be back on d…

Lena was kind enough to let us check in early in the morning when we arrived by ferry. The place is clean and in a great location in town yet still very quiet. Lena responded timely to our questions and any issues that arose. There are some specific house rules for security reaso…

I was a bit lost when I arrived in the city and we really appreciated Lena's guidance and patience. She is very kind and her appartment is really sweet, extremely well located. You are in a nice living surroundings, closer to the locals than the tourists.
