Ribetta Apartments
sleeps up to: 4
On the second floor of one of the historic old buildings that fringe the harbourside, these three superbly renovated apartments provide very comfortable accommodation in a truly unique position.

Highly polished pine floors contrast with the original dark beamed ceilings, whilst the mellow old stone work around the windows has been carefully restored and retained as an attractive feature. The comfortable bedrooms are all beautifully furnished and decorated with particularly handsome antique bedsteads in a deep shade of green with gleaming brass fittings, all in keeping with the elegant period flavour of the property.

Each apartment has a modern, very well appointed bathroom or shower room and smartly furnished open plan living area with small kitchenette, dining table and two comfortable sofas. Brass wall lamps and table lamps provide atmospheric lighting for a cosy evening en famille and all the apartments are finished off in style with a selection of decorative antiques.

The two larger apartments have either a balcony or windows overlooking the harbour, plus high vaulted beamed ceilings with stairs from the living area to a romantic twin bedded sleeping gallery in the eaves, complete with wardrobe and dressing table etc. The three apartments share a quiet and cloistered inner courtyard open to the sky and supplied with patio furniture. The black and white marble tiled flooring and luxuriant potted plants subtly suggest the Venetian origins of the building and glancing up at the swifts as they swoop and glide in the blue skies above it is easy to imagine a bygone era when Chania was just a far flung outpost of ancient Venice.

Please note: there are 45 steps (no lift) to the second floor level and entrance to the apartments. As the living areas of the front apartments actually overlook the harbour you will hear the sound of music and the babble of conversation from harbourside tavernas, especially during the evenings. We believe this is a small price to pay for this remarkable, atmospheric location.
