SAMONAS TRADITIONAL HOUSES
The traditional settlement of Samonas is a complete neighborhood located in the village of Samonas, in the district of Apokoronas, at an altitude of 400m and at a distance of 25km from Chania.
The village still preserves its picturesque character since it is really very small and has very few inhabitants. Their main occupation is stock-raising, agriculture and apiculture.
The settlement is built on a hill slope and it has such an orientation that it offers an impressive view from all dwellings.
Looking over from the settlement's location, we get the impression that we could touch the Lefka Ori, or dive into the vast Cretan sea.
Here you will experience unique moments of relaxation and complete tranquility in an authentically traditional area, without missing any of the comforts of the modern way of living, which we have quietly incorporated in all our dwellings.
All our dwellings are two-storey (maisonettes) with unlimited view to the mountain 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.
