The Archaeological Museum of the area is located in the capital of Kissamos province, just 4 km away.
There are daily cruises departing from Kastelli’s port (the port Kissamos is 350 metres from the house) for Gramvousa, where you can find the old Venetian fortress, and the breathtaking exotic beach of Balos (Tigani bay, tropic water lagoon with white-pink sand).
Balos is famous for its turquoise waters, the wild natural beauty and the beautiful exotic scenery. During the summer, Balos is visited by thousands of people, who arrive mostly by the ferries running from Kissamos port.
The lagoon of Balos has white sand and exotic white, vivid blue and turquoise waters. The sea is very shallow and warm, ideal for young children. In many places the sand has a lovely pinkish color, because of millions of crushed shells. Beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon, the water is deeper and colder, ideal for a snorkeling. The lagoon and the wider area, with rare species of flora and fauna, are protected under the Natura 2000 program.
Just 9 km to the north west you can visit the exotic beach of Falassarna. At the northern end of the beach there are the ruins of the ancient Grecoroman city of Falassarna.
Falassarna bay is one of the most famous beaches in Greece, which has been awarded as the best beach of Crete and voted as one of the 10 best beaches in Europe in the past. Falasarna spans a large area and consists actually of five consecutive beaches, with the two most central being the most favorite.
The sand in Falassarna is whitish, making the water color tropical. Indeed, if you’re lucky and be here on a day that is not blowing from the west (rare in west Crete) you will be enchanted by the beach and its turquoise waters.
The main beach of Falassarna is called Pachia Ammos. It is an exotic beach with a length of 1km and a width of 150m. This beach attracts the most visitors of the area, but because of its length it never seems too crowded. The beach offers umbrellas and a few snack bars and cafes where you can get food and water. There are also services for water sports and beach volley courts.
Don’t forget to visit Elafonisi, where you can find a unique pink sandy beach and a cedar forest (45 km).Elafonisi is an oblong peninsula, which often breaks in two parts by water giving the impression of being a separate island.
Exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise water, reminding of the Caribbean, are formed on either sides of the peninsula. The sand is pinkish in many places, taking its color from millions of crushed shells. Near the breaking point of the peninsula, the sea water does not exceed 1m in depth, creating a small lagoon, ideal for children. You can easily cross the lagoon in order to reach the opposite site of the peninsula, while carrying your staff with you, because the water is very shallow there.
The eastern side of the beach, in front of the lagoon, is well organized and has the most people. There are umbrellas, showers, lifeguards, snack bars and changing rooms. Also, near the beach there is a huge area for parking. Opposedly, the beaches on either sides of the island are less crowded and are the most beautiful, with amazing azure colors.

This was a fantastic place to stay. One of the best I have been to with Airbnb. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone with kids. The hoasts very really nice, had many helpful suggestions about things to see, and very generous. My kids will definatly miss the family.
We had a wonderful stay at Matinas house. Its really spacious and clean and has every thing one needs for a wonderful holiday stay. The family is very friendly. We can really recommend this appartement. The area is very quiet, the beach is very near.
The appartment was amazing and the hosts were very kind and always willing to help. I would definitely recommend staying there and enjoying the many interesting sites and beaches in Crete from there as the locatiom is very near Elafonisi and Balos.
A wonderful airy and spotlessly clean apartment, and an excellent base for exploring the western end of the island (even if only to enjoy the beaches)
Matina’s place is perfect if you want to visit the western side of Crete. The house is well furnished and equipped for a great accommodation. The house is very clean and it has a great garden with grape vines and beautiful vegetation and olive trees surrounding the place. Also it has a beautiful view of the sea from the balcony and you can walk by foot to a beach close by. It is close to amazing beaches with pink sand and clear waters like Falassarna and the stunning Balos lagoon. We also went to the famous Elafonissi beach from here (it is about 50km from the location). You can also visit the port which is in walking distance from here. We enjoyed our 3 day stay here very much.
Spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable top floor apartment of a large house. Lovely balcony views to the mountains and overlooking a wonderful grape vine and big beautifully kept garden. The housekeeper came every 3 days during our 9 day stay which we were very impressed by so the flat was always very clean and we had nice fresh sheets. The apartment is very well located and we had a wonderful time exploring the west coast of Crete with its stunning beaches from here. Loads of great restaurants within a 2- 10 min drive away. Marina’s whole family are lovely, lovely people with special mention for her wonderfully warm mother Sofia and the sweet dog Boo Boo!
The house is great with a nice view on the sea. Large, fully furnished and equipped. Very well located to go to the best beaches in Crete too! Matina ‘s family is very nice and welcoming. It’s been a real pleasure to meet them. We definitely recommend the place! Thank you very much Matina and waiting for you in Paris soon 🙂
Everything was great, the house is big and well equipped. Matina is a great host, I really suggest this plase to visit the western area of Crete!
The best that can be expected in every respect

We were very warmly received at Matina’s, especially by her mother, and had a great stay with her! The apartment is perfectly clean, and very spacious. Matina’s mom kindly offered us watermelon and cakes, and fresh water was waiting for us in the fridge. The house is in a quiet corner, despite the presence of a road next to it, and you can hear cars passing by from one of the bedrooms. Since the others, absolute calm apart from the cicadas which wake you up pleasantly in the morning, like everywhere in Crete !! The port of Kissamos is very close, and very beautiful Cretan sites are within easy reach by car. We quickly felt at home, and had a hard time leaving Sofia and her adorable little dog when the stay was over. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and its lovely hosts to all airbnb travelers! Thanks again (: Nathalie

Very good stay in this house ideally located to enjoy the lagoons of Balos and Elafonissi and more generally of the western end of the island. Very clean house and welcoming hosts. The only downside is the nearby road, even if we quickly forget it thanks to the breathtaking view of the sea.

Mativa and her family have been remarkably kind and generous, they know how to take care of their residents. They are really very welcoming people who are always there for the smallest details. I really recommend this place close to the most beautiful beaches of the ridge with very smiling people and listening to tourists. Another big thank you to all of you.

Excellent address, which I highly recommend. Spacious, comfortable, well-equipped accommodation, ideally located for visiting the western region of the island, at the foot of the exceptional Balos site (to be done early in the morning to make the most of it). Great kindness of the owners. The grandmother, very attentive, lives on the ground floor of the house, and the children come on weekends, a very warm and family atmosphere. The owners go out of their way to give you the best addresses. Do not hesitate.

The house is spacious, very clean and newly built. The air conditioning is new and well functioning as well as the wifi. It has a beautiful sea view. The most famous beaches such as Balos and Falasarna are easily accessible and it is located near the town of Kissamos. The landlady is very kind and hospitable. I recommend it.
