One is instantly captivated when the magnificent views of Souda Bay are first glimpsed from the upper terrace of this imaginatively restored village house. Evenings spent gazing at the huge horseshoe shaped bay whilst relaxing and indulging in a cool drink will surely become vivid holiday memories. While thoughtfully respecting the essence of his Cretan heritage Spitaki’s caring owner has created a comfortable, restful property whose delightful décor starts with bright red roof tiles atop a pretty, coral tinted exterior perfectly complemented by blue-painted shutters and doors.

Who would guess when stepping through the traditional arched doorway set in the high surrounding walls that a relatively modest-looking exterior overlooks such a charming kidney-shaped pool and terrace? Spacious and set on several levels, the terraces abound with potted plants, Grecian urns and trellises to encourage the budding bougainvillea to climb. To one side is an outdoor kitchen complete with barbecue and sink. Wide stone steps coloured a deeper coral tint lead up to the upper terrace which can also be accessed from the first floor landing. From here there are views over the village rooftops, some cleverly placed privacy panels creating a discreet, intimate ambience.

Inside, this appealing house has an elegant air with the owner’s eclectic tastes enhancing both the contemporary comfort and the atmosphere of welcoming Cretan hospitality. The kitchen, compact and traditional, houses an elegant table and chairs and cool floor tiles while the living area has heirlooms such as the ornate carved dresser, comfy sofas, and an intriguing little alcove in one corner that used to house farmyard animals but is now enclosed by a glass window. A small doorway and steep steps lead down to a cool wine cellar with original barrels, installed by the owner in homage to his grandfather’s abiding passion for wine-making.

A small twin bedroom and separate shower room are situated on the ground floor whilst a wooden staircase leads up to the landing from where there is access to the upper terrace, as well as the bathroom and double bedroom. The charming four poster bed is festooned with swathes of material, complemented by a heavy antique wardrobe and has neat cupboards arranged along one wall.

Close to a small taverna and a mini-market which offers all the basics, Spitaki means ‘little house’, and this refurbished gem is the perfect retreat in which to enjoy a simpler (and markedly slower!) pace of life. The loosely arranged hamlet of Xirosteni is a great base from which to explore the wilder, abundantly scenic western side of Crete; an idyllic spot in which to mingle with the local community before returning to a cosy corner all of your own. When the need to explore further afield arises, the nearest sandy beaches of Almyrida (4km) and Kalives (5km) are set alongside pretty villages with plenty of tavernas and shops. The stunning Venetian harbour front of Chania, ancient capital of Crete, more than merits a visit to enjoy, perhaps, a good-humoured haggle for bargains with the spice shop owners before a leisurely meal in one of the abundant tavernas.
