Enjoy your stay in a charming restored 19th Century house full of Greek Light and energy. Green Dia’s Mansion is located in Armenos, a picturesque – traditional village at the foot of the White Mountains, just 30-minutes’ drive from the city of Chania and 10 minutes from the beach of Kalyves, one of the most popular beaches on the island. The house is just a 5-minute walk from the village centre and the square.
The house, dating back to 1895, belonged to the great-grandfather of the owner’s family and was completely renovated in 2021. Both the owners and the architects respected the original building while reflecting the tradition of the area and adapting to the needs of modern life. This traditional yet modern home perfectly captures the atmosphere of complete relaxation that every visitor seeks to find on vacation. The owners of the house wanted to marry their passion for the Aegean islands by blending the white of the Greek islands, with the deep olive green that dominates the Cretan landscape. And the result of this lovingly restored home is truly impressive!
Relax by the pool or enjoy your breakfast in the courtyard. Admire the view of the Cretan Mountains from your terrace as you gaze over the bell tower of the large church that’s central to village life. Sit back and unwind as you watch the sky endless change with the sunset over the White Mountains and enjoy the tranquility of this wonderful home.
Guests can get easily acquainted with the local cuisine within the village at the traditional cafes and tavernas in the heart of the village just meters away. Marvel at the age-old plane-trees and natural streams that rush through this village on their way to the sea from the Mountains. It truly is a unique phenomenon!Relax in style as you sunbathe on your private rooftop and unwind in the tranquility and luxury of your very own Jacuzzi. This rooftop oasis provides an idyllic place to enjoy the early evening Cretan sun and create those extra special memories with friends and family. Gaze over the Cretan Mountains and the Akrotiri peninsular or admire the tranquility of the turquoise sea in-front.
The house offers absolute tranquility as it is located in a very quiet neighbourhood of the village, chosen by many visitors from every corner of the globe. In summers the village square is full of happy voices and songs while in winter locals and foreign visitors, many of whom have permanent residences in the area, become a large group enjoying the local delicacies and the local liqueur (tsikoudia) by the fireplace and on the wood stove.
This charming and warm-hearted property has a large modern bedroom on the 1st floor (with a double bed and an armchair that converts into a single bed), overflowing with light from the 4 windows, overlooking your own private pool. The white-washed high wooden ceiling of this room offers a sense of freedom while keeping in tradition with the building. On this floor there is also an en-suite bathroom and shower room to give guests even more privacy.
