Anemon Villas - Villa Pounentes Chania, Crete, Greece
Additional Location Information
Anemon Villas are located in the district of Kissamos on the west part of Crete and the area is probably the most famous part of the Chania Prefecture. The beaches of Falassarna and Elafonisi, the lagoon of Balos and the peninsula of Gramvousa with the homonymous island are only some of the treasures of the area.
Kissamos is not just a part of Crete, is an entire destination with secrets and surprises, ready to be explored!
Staying at Anemon villas, you are only 4 km away of the capital of the district. Kissamos (Kastelli) is a modern seaside town, offering everything visitors might need but its beauty lays in the fact that although it has embraced tourism, has not been spoilt by it. The town is standing on the site of ancient Kissamos, a flourishing, independent city with its own coinage and extensive trading links, which was the harbor of ancient Polirinia. Kissamos was also known as Kastelli and got its name from the Venetian Fort that used to surround the town. Today, the ruins of the fort, still stand in some places as reminders of its great past.
An afternoon walk in the picturesque fishing port of the town is offering a beautiful view of the bay of Kissamos and little further, on the larger commercial port, daily pleasure cruises are available to the stunning island of Gramvousa and Balos lagoon.
Anemon villas are located in Nopigia, a tiny seaside village. The location is perfect, as the most famous beaches of the island are less than 20 minutes drive away but also the beach of the village, only minutes walk away is ideal for relaxing. There is not much to say about the beaches in Kissamos. They speak for themselves, as they are some of the most famous in the world. The beaches of Falassarna, the lagoon of Balos and the island Gramvousa lie just a few kilometers away from the villas and if you care to drive for about 1 hour you can get to places like Elafonisi and Kedrodasos. However, in the west and north coastlines of the area, hundreds of small, less known beaches, are ready to be explored and the beach of Nopigeia is just 400 m away.
During your visit you will have the chance to notice that the countless beaches are not the only beauty of Kissamos. The combination of the green hills with the wild landscape constitutes one of the reasons that this part of the island is so famous. The north part of Kissamos, where Anemon Villas are placed, is full of olive groves and vineyards and you can arrange a tour guide to some of the local wineries as Pneumatikakis Winery (in a walking distance from the villas) or even visit an organic olive grove (10-15 min away from Anemon Villas) and learn about oil production.
Finally, the area of Kissamos has a long and rich history, which lives in the ruins of the ancient cities. Ancient Falasarna and Polirinia are reminding us the greatness of Kissamos in antiquity. The ruins of Polirinia found in today's village Polirinia, just few kilometers away from Anemon Villas and they testify the fact that Polirinia was the most important city of western Crete after Cydonia.
