The traditional settlement of Samonas is a complete renovated neighbourhood in the village of Samonas, in the district of Apokoronas Crete, at an altitude of 400 m and at a distance of 25 km 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, or dive into the vast Cretan sea.
All dwellings are two-storey (maisonettes) with unlimited view to the mountains, valley and the sea. They are exclusively built in stone and wood to match their surroundings. Each is built at a different level due to the ground's steep slope, with common courtyards as well as independent verandas or balconies and quiet corners.
All dwellings have two main entrances with traditional rustic locks and big iron keys. They are decorated with many small folklore objects and antiques.
All incorporate the same comforts and luxury, although they differ in size and layout.
Samonas is a peacefull picturesque village which still preserves its authentic character since is really small and quiet and has very few inhabitants. During night hours, thousands of stars will magnetize your eyes. And at day musical sounds, vivid colours and perfums, captivating scents, pure flavours and the close touch with nature will awaken all your senses and their remembrance will remain unforgettable.
Here you will experience unique moments of relaxation and complete tranquillity in an authentically traditional area, without missing any of the comforts of the modern way of living, which they have been quietly incorporated in all the dwellings.
