Chania | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8 + 2

Rates: from £3,856 per week

Built to exceptional standards and in ultra-contemporary design, Villa Kamy is virtually a piece of art in itself.
Carved into the rocky coastal landscape along the Bay of Chania, this stunning property occupies one of the most sought-after seafront locations of the island. Breath-taking sea views are guaranteed from almost every room of the villa and best enjoyed from the idyllic sunbathing terrace just above the seashore - a perfect place for serenity and relaxation.

Villa Kamy is conveniently located in a residential area close to the beach villages of Stavros, Kalathas and Tersanas, and only 20 minutes away from the charming Venice-like town of Chania with its great variety of restaurants, bars and shops. The contemporary style of the villa, featuring smoky-grey stone next to brilliant white walls and sun-reflecting glass windows, fits beautifully into the rough coastal landscape without compromising on comfort. The 8x5m sparkling infinity pool also blends seamlessly into the magnificent blue waters of the surroundings which offer a unique swimming experience to those preferring the fresh sea over the cosy pool. Inside the villa is a cool mix of polished concrete flooring, dazzling white walls and exposed brick-style features, which together with handpicked furniture pieces and smart lightning effects create an ultra-modern, yet comfortable ambience.

TIME ZONE Greece operates on GMT + 2 hours.

LANGUAGE Modern Greek (as opposed to Ancient) is the national language of Greece. Vernacular speech contains many borrowings from foreign languages, including Italian, French, Turkish and English, so you may hear some familiar words in everyday speech. "Tourist Police" whose lapel badges picture a Union Jack or American flag speak English. In Greece, people whose work brings them into contact with visitors from overseas are generally excellent English speakers.

CURRENCY The Euro, divided into 100 Cents.

MONEY MATTERS Travellers cheques can easily be converted into Euros; some larger stores will take them as payment. Smaller denominations are preferred. Major credit cards are widely accepted (though American Express less so) and ATM access is widespread.

TIPPING Like most European countries, tipping in restaurants is common, with a recommended 10% on a discretionary basis according to service. Check that a service charge has not been added to your bill before deciding whether to tip. Taxi drivers do not usually expect a tip but it is common practice and considered polite to round up taxi fares.

WEATHER Greece enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and cool, occasionally wet winters. Summer temperatures can reach the upwards of 90 degrees Fahrenheit and sun protection in the form of sun cream, a sun hat and lightweight clothing is recommended.

CLOTHING Style is fairly casual throughout Greece though in more rural areas and during Easter more conservative dress may be observed, for example covered shoulders. Cathedrals, churches and other religious sites require conservative dress. Both sexes should cover their arms, legs and shoulders. Cotton and other light fabrics are comfortable choices for summertime as the heat can be extreme during summer months. You are advised to take lightweight light coloured items, including a sun hat to protect your skin from the affects of sun damage. Spring and autumn temperatures dictate light to medium-weight clothing selections and in winter you will need a pullover and a coat. When dining at better restaurants and for any special occasion during your journey, dress is more formal. For gentlemen, a "jacket and tie" standard is appropriate, with an equivalent standard of eveningwear for ladies. Bring comfortable walking shoes with low or no heels.

HEALTH For up to date information on latest health and vaccination recommendations, please contact your doctor.

ELECTRICITY Electrical service is supplied at 220 volts/50 hertz.
