Manolis House for 3 Traditional house with Pool (max 3 per.)

1 of 57
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
Douliana, Chania Prefecture, Crete
This cozy traditional stone house, stands in quiet nature hidden in the typical Cretan landscape , just at five minute walk distance from the center of the picturesque well preserved village of Douliana, just 3 kilometres from the blue flags of the beaches of Kalives, Almirida and Kera, and at the same time very close to many walking /trekking destinations.
House at ground level can accommodate 2 +1 people with 1 bedroom and 1 couch that easily become bed next to the fire place.
Manolis House is not in a mainstream touristic settlement. The vivid hot spots of action (night life, beaches and fancy restaurants) are within 10min range by car, but in Douliana you can have this deep relaxed feeling. As if you were isolated ,or even lost. Soundtrack to that: Singing Birds. Specially on the mornings.
Surrounded by cypress trees, hidd...

Interaction with guests
As a quest at Manolis House you will enjoy the relaxing environment and the quiet tree surroundings, interrupted only by occasional bird chirps. However, the owner and son, (Mr Manolis and Dimitris) are easily accessible by phone as they live near by. Don’t hesitate to ask recommendations about tours, taverns and other destinations. Don’t miss the chance! Enjoy the fresh vegetables from the garden of the house, the daily eggs from the chickens on the backyard, ask Mr Manolis the secrets of his wine, or even ask him to teach you some of his gardening skills. Mr Manolis, owner and an retired carpenter is daily watering the garden and cleaning the pool.

A peaceful and tranquil property located a short walk from the centre of the village. The one bedroom accommodation was very clean, spacious and well maintained by the owners who were readily available for any queries that we had.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Douliana is officially declared by the Greek Cultural Ministry as “traditional settlement of distinct natural beauty”.The population during winter is not more than 20 people, while during summer it goes around 40 (locals).All of them are smiling, warm hearted people, without commercialized hospitality and faking attitude towards tourists.
The village is on a dead end . Road does not pass through Douliana to somewhere else. This is an important element for your vacation decision.
This small village is literally a neighborhood by its own. Explore the alleys and the small forests around the village.
Getting around
Nights in Douliana are unique. Don’t be a tourist. Blend with the locals and enjoy some genuine rare moments of a culture that is fading away.
Bank, Post Office, Health Center, Municipality buildings and facilities, Police, taverns, and many groceries, super markets, and local craft items can be found at the surrounding villages of Kalives, Vamos, Almyrida and Gavalohori.
In Douliana there is a cafenio, (coffee house) ,a mini market, two tavernas that are worth visit . You can find an interesting folklore museum in the neighbor village of Gavalohori.
In just 3 kilometres you can swim under the blue flags of the beaches of Kalives, Almirida and Kera, and at the same time be very close to many walking /trekking destinations.
