The lovely green terraced lawns of Lithos create a great contrast to the striking cobalt blue sea of Souda Bay immediately behind. Uninterrupted sea views from the terraces dominate the horizon and the huge curve of the horseshoe shaped bay, one of the largest in Europe, makes even the opposite coastline an integral part of the sweeping panorama.

Lithos is a wonderful stone house, with spacious gardens set in an ideal location to explore western Crete and the Apokoronas mountain villages of which Megala Chorafia is one of the prettiest. Just 1.2km away you will find the village mini-market, a ‘kafenion’ and two tavernas serving some fine local dishes, such close proximity meaning that for many guests taking the car is not essential when popping out to have dinner or top up the shopping.

A welcoming atmosphere is immediately apparent on entering the front door with an appealing and timeless Cretan style prevalent throughout. All locally made the traditional furnishings include both wood and stone sofas adorned with plump colourful cushions, a carved wooden dining table, chairs and dresser complementing the wooden rafters, cooling floors of stone and polished boards as well as individual personal touches such as the antique 1930s radio. French doors open onto the outside terrace where the rattan sofas and coffee table ensure that al fresco living is a pleasure. A couple of stone steps lead up to the ground floor twin bedroom with separate shower room and a patio. On the first floor, the double and twin bedrooms both access a balcony that runs the width of the property, offering ‘dizzying’ views of sea and sky.

A Cretan oven and a barbecue are sited on a lower terrace to one side of the pool and garden with a pergola shading a traditional stone built table and chairs. Stunning views are absolutely guaranteed from here providing every reason to linger as the sun rises, sets… or just shines in general!

The Apokoronas Mountains are peppered with countless picturesque tiny hamlets and the location of Megala Chorafia with a population of just 300, several churches and the above mentioned amenities ranks it amongst the best. It is also just 5km to the sandy beach of Kyani where there are a couple of beachside tavernas and, 4km further along, Kalives is a bustling friendly village with plenty of tavernas and shops to explore. Delightful Chania (23km) has a wonderful Venetian harbour, lots of cobbled streets and a great indoor market that sells all kinds of fresh foods, spices and local specialities. Off the beaten track yet so close to tavernas and beaches, this peaceful haven makes a marvellous holiday base.

Terraced grounds mean that younger children may need supervision
