Escape to the Cretan coast and live the good life at this gorgeous villa, only a five-minute drive from Chania's Venetian harbour. While the interior is steeped in tradition – think vaulted wooden ceilings, delightful windows with original shutters and exposed white-stone walls – what we love most is how thoughtfully it's been modernised. A glossy kitchen is fit for cooking up a storm, the breezy living area is open-plan to encourage conversation and the bathrooms are sleek and stylish. Outside, the palm-lined garden invites you to sprawl out poolside, soaking up the rays and splashing in the cool blue water. When you tire of the sun, retreat underneath the covered terrace and fire up the built-in barbecue for dinner, followed by cocktails on the balcony as the sun sets over the hills. We don't know about you, but that sounds like heaven to us. But the best part of all is the location. Whether you fancy shopping, sightseeing or swimming in the sea, there's something here to please everyone. The nearest beach is just a three-minute drive, but with so many to choose from, you can discover a new favourite each day. And a quick taxi ride and you'll be in the centre of Chania, where you can wine and dine until your heart's content at the tavernas, bars and waterfront eateries.
