Location

Paleochora, Greece

Paleochora is a fairly quiet town, even in summer. The number of inhabitants is 3.500 and during summer that number doubles easily. Here, village life with all traditions, holidays and festivals still prevails. The tourists they simply fit in and they become truly part of village life. Some of them became residents and live in Paleochora. There is an art festival and a (small scale) international film festival and there is the occasional live music in the street, but it is all quiet and mellow. There is something magical about this place and we believe that has to do with the beautiful nature around and the fact that the village is almost encircled by the sea. In the evening the main street and the east boulevard are closed for cars. Bars and restaurants put their tables outside and all this leads to an evening long parade of locals, tourists and playing children. Some way to experience the Cretan hospitality!

Surroundings:
Going west along the coast to Koundoura you will find three beautiful and quiet beaches, Azuro and Plakaki beach (a 5 min drive) and Grammeno beach (an 8 min drive). A little further west you will find Krios beach (a 15 min drive). There are two nice restaurants in Koundoura along the road, Grammeno and Koumas.

Further west there is the famous peninsula Elafonisos. There is a daily boattrip from Paleochora or you may go by car. This is a daytrip. You first drive north (direction Chania) and before Kandanos you turn left direction Strovles and Leros. Easy to find.

From the east side of Paleochora, at the end of our boulevard, starts an endless pebble beach along the coast. At the end of that you will find a true paradise, Gialliskari or Anidri beach. The site consists of three connected beaches and they are all superb. Each beach has a simple taverna with cheap but good food and refreshments. Chill out time! Gialliskari is a 15 min drive from Paleohora or an hour walk.

The road to Gialliskari is part of the walking path E4. From the last beach you can walk to the ancient site of Lissos and further on to Sougia, the next village along the coast. This is serious walking though. Sougia takes about 5/6 hrs. Sougia is a nice destination by car (1,5 hour drive) or by ferry boat leaving in the morning from the old port in front of the apartment.
A nice walk (less than an hour) is the Anidri Gorge, starting just outside the village Anidri going down to Anidri beach (Gialliskari).

Aphrodite (Afroditi in Greek) was the name of my grandmother. She passed away some years ago at the age of 103. She lived downstairs in the cornerhouse with my grandfather (Giorgos) and they raised my mother and her brother and sister. I myself grew up in Athens, but every eastern and summer we came down to Paleochora for holidays. 
In the 70’s my grandparents built the first ‘Rooms for Rent’ in Paleochora by the name ‘Afroditi rooms’. My grandmother was a great hostess for almost 40 years for so many tourists. Some of them came back year after year. I stayed in my grandmother’s house almost every year of my life. Later I brought my daughter Aphrodite as well. 
 Recently I rented out a nice country house in Koundoura on Airbnb for a while until that was permanently rented out. Now my mother rebuilt most of the rooms of grandmother into a new modern apartment. We are happy with the result. Of course the view and nature remain impressive. But our goal is obviously to meet the standard of hospitality of Afroditi. I live in Amsterdam, but I am regularly in Paleochora and I have all the contacts there that are needed. Enjoy your stay is what it is all about.
