Casa Minervos has off-road parking with a sloping driveway beside the Villa to park your car hires. As soon as you arrive you will find a green gate that opens manually with a controller. The main entrance is at the front with a few steps up to the front door.
Living Space & Kitchen
As soon as you enter the Villa you will face a living room with a fireplace and a wooden dining table on your left and a second living room with a TV, both enjoying views of the yard and the sea.
The bright, open plan kitchen, dining and seating area on the ground floor is a great place to socialise after a day by the sea. The big shutter doors flood the room with light and really open up the feeling of space.

On the ground floor, there is one bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom has a double bed and right next to it is the bathroom with a bathtub
On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, one with a king bed and an ensuite room for your clothing accessories and the other with a double bed. Both of them are connected with a terrace with fabulous views of the Aegean Sea and the Port of Souda. Those bedrooms share a family bathroom with a bathtub.
Casa Minervos is located in Megala Chorafia, a village next to the Cretan Main Road, which leads to well-known beaches, such as Falasarna, Elafonisi and many more. The village consists of traditional stone-built and contemporary modern houses.
Local markets & Shopping
In the village within 5 minutes walking distance from the house, there is a mini-market with fresh groceries and meat, a bakery shop and a traditional restaurant that offers Cretan food and refreshing beers.
Within 5 minutes drive, you will reach the port of Souda, where you can find a SuperMarket and a fish shop.
The charming city of Chania, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, is less than 15 minutes drive. Every Saturday, there is a market where you can pick up fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as the local yoghurts and cheese. The old town has a mix of shops ranging from a bootmaker to boutique clothing.

You'll be spoilt for choice on where to eat in the villages around the Villa. There are several tavernas that offer local food cooked with traditional Cretan recipes. If you prefer fish, there are some waterfront restaurants that overlook the sea within 15 minutes drive.

The beach of Kyani Akti is around 10 minutes' drive from the Villa, with clear blue water and soft golden sand. There is also the Blue Flag beach of Kalyves with plenty of sunbeds and parasols to hire and a selection of beach bars and tavernas, all about 1km away. For a day at the beach, Elafonisi and Faalasarna are ideal destinations! There are white sand and pink hues and turquoise waters that ripple in the breeze. Both beaches are a bit far away, but it definitely worths driving there!
For some fun in the sun, especially when the coastline close to the Villa is wavy, Limnoupolis Waterpark offers a great adventure for the whole family! About 20 minutes drive from the Villa, Limnoupolis with its waterslides for the energetic and the lazy river for the more laid-back members of the group can provide with moments of joy all the members of your company.
Places of Interest
Less than 5 minutes drive from the villa is one of the most interesting archaeological sites in western Crete, the city of Ancient Aptera that was inhabited since Minoan times. The site has several paths that lead to ancient places of interest like an ancient theatre and an extraordinary sewer system. You will have to pay for a symbolic price for your entrance.
The city of Chania is not to be missed! The Venetian Harbour is fringed with restaurants, cafes and bars. This is a great place to rest after a day exploring the maze of alleys in the old town of Chania.
Within 30 minutes' drive, you will also find the Botanical Gardens of Crete that worth a visit. In that garden, you will be amazed by the variety of products which you can walk into through handmade paths. If you decide to have lunch or dinner at the restaurant of the gardens, make sure you ask for their local salad with more than 100 ingredients!
