The traditional settlement of Samonas is a complete renovated neighborhood in the village of Samonas, in the district of Apokoronas Crete, at an altitude of 400 m and at a distance of 20 km south-east from Chania. The settlement is built on a hill slope and it has such an orientation that it offers an impressive mountain, valley and sea view from all houses. Looking over from the property's location, you get the impression that you could touch the Cretan White Mountain and dive into the vast Cretan sea at the same time.
Ideally spot for those who are looking for relaxation, in a safe and quiet area in the nature, but at the same time not far away from big cities and and busy touristic areas in case you would like a city break or nightlife. Surrounded by mountains, but with sea view, you can find almost everything in a short distance. Nice beaches, rivers and lake, caves, gorges, archaeological sites, authentic character villages, traditional tavernas, but big city with modern facilities, shops, bars and restaurants as well.
Feel Crete at its best, by staying with us, at Samonas Traditional Villas.
