We stayed for 2 weeks at Samonas and had a perfect holiday. The Samonas villas are a wonderfully relaxing and charming place to stay, combining beautiful traditional buildings and decor with excellent facilities and personal touches by the owner. There is about a 20 min winding drive up into the hills to reach Samonas, but the views are fantastic. We...

A hidden gem. A remarkable experience. If you long to escape into the mountains, and stay in a beautiful, quiet, wonderfully converted tiny settlement of gorgeous original stone cottages, with time to dream and breathe and eat and walk - then you'll be incredibly happy. The best of times.

Samonas is a small village of 25 people and one Taverna 400 mtr up in the hills of Western Crete. The hotel/settlement consits of just 5 traditionally built units around...

Samonas was everything and more than I hoped for. It was authentic, lovely and personal. Konstantinos welcomed me personally, even with my late evening arrival. I got a tour of the property and was thrilled at every sight. It lacks nothing and offers everything that you get at a luxary five star hotel. I'm from the USA and have seen...

We arrived at Samonas Traditional villas at August the 16th. At first sight I could imagine what it would like. It was a block of 5 tradiotional villas at a small village near chania, up to 400 height. Beautiful view over the mountains and the sea, beautiful garden with pool, very good construction of the buildings. All the villas, you...

My family stayed at four different hotels while traveling the cyclades, none of which came close to the perfection of the Samonas villas. With their mountain top location the villas overlook a breathtaking view of the Greek countryside and create a peaceful getaway. We were welcomed by Konstantinos in a most generous way, he has designed the villas with exquisite...

As all of the reviews already attest, Samonas is an incredibly unique place. We have traveled a lot but have never come across anything quite like the villas at Samonas. The location is picturesque, and only a short 30 minute drive from the beautiful city of Chania. Samonas is also the name of the small village where the villas rest,...

We just returned from our second stay at Samonas. We find it the most relaxing place we've been to in our lives. Konstantinos, the host, goes out of his way to make the stay something special. Nesteled in the hills outside of Chania, the windy road up has spectacular views. Once there, the only sounds you hear are the roosters...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. All our 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. They are decorated with many small folklore objects and antiques. All incorporate the same comforts and luxury, although they differ in size and layout.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 we have quietly incorporated in all our dwellings. ... more   less

“No. 5 Malotira is located high on the property is large with outstanding views .... plus the 4 terraces. Well worth the additional cost.”
  • A very large, fully supplied kitchen.
  • Very comfortable sleep.
  • One of our terraces - actually shaded in the morning.
  • The main terrace just outside the main entrance to our house.
