Photo elements from the Apartment Despina.

This photograph was taken in 1965, by a local photographer, "PHOTO STAR", was the name of his shop.(sorry for not remembering his name).
Practically, he shooted seven photos and then added the pieces together, in order to show a panoramic view of the harbour of Chania.
For those years this tecnhic was considered very prototyped, so this photo-picture is a valuable memory.

Why we named it as "Apartment Despina"?

One year ago, we decided to reconstruct an Apartment, available to our friends, for staying and enjoying the place.
Well ,it was hard to do, but finally it worth ed every single minute of work.

The final result, according to our friends's opinions, was beyond our expectations.

Despina, the half of Despina and Vangelis , since 30 years , decorated it , making it as the place we would like to enjoy, after so many years of travelling experience.

Could we have choose a diferent name , than DESPINA ?

The apartment is located in a private land of 3.200sq.m., 4.5km west of the city of Chania. It has a direct access to the beach, to the only part remaining without umbrellas and chairs (we call it free beach). It is on 1st floor, with verandas all around, with fine view from every side north and west to the sea, east to Agii Apostoli, And south to Lefka Ori mountain plus our beautifull large trees. It has 2 bedrooms, one living room one kitchen room , 1 major bathroom and additionally a smaller w.c. It sleeps 4 up to 6, the plus 2 in the living room. It has kitchen, oven, refrigerator, laundry machine for clothes plus iron machine. For 6 persons plates,glasses etc. Two chairs for the beach plus one umbrella and also towels. T.V.device ,plus DVD if requested for free, and free Dial up Internet Access. Also free local phones are available. Parking place for car in a protected and private area.

Living in the green.

We love living in the green.The area is full of trees, some of them are ,of the few remaining "almirikia", a kind of tree that once was dominating the north beaches of Crete.

The upper left photo, was taken by our good friend Lori, from the north side of our veranda.

Thank's a lot Lori.
