The very important and extremely beautiful Monastery of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity), or Tzagarolon Monastery as it is also known, is one of the most impressive monasteries you will see in Crete.
The surrounding scenery is lovely, and the final stretch of straight road leading to the monastery is impressively lined with cypresses, allowing you to see the imposing facade of the monastery only at the end of the road.
The plot is found along a similar scenic route lined with cypresses creating an idyllic environment for the construction of a home or a tourism business in a privileged unspoiled location of complete tranquility just 7km from the beautiful beach of Kalathas with fine sand and shallow crystal clear waters!
A wonderful combination of excellent location and natural beauty, this plot is a magnificent opportunity just waiting to be grabbed!
Akrotiri Peninsula lies just 10km away from the main city of Chania. The best thing about Akrotiri is it remains largely untouched by tourism, with quaint little villages nestling close to the coastline or sitting proudly in the hillsides of the peninsula. You will find a lot of villages around this area and some amazing white sandy beaches, where you will find yourselves the only person on the beach.
Akrotiri has approximately 10.000 inhabitants. Some of them live in the charming and traditional villages; others live in attractive small new suburbs of Profitis Ilias, Kounoupidiana, Korakies, Kalathas, Agios Ounoufrios, etc. Kounoupidiana serves as the “centre” of Akrotiri and offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and other services, and is in addition home to The Polytechnic University of Crete. The road network is good and with frequent bus service to Chania.
The villages of Akrotiri are: Sternes, Horafakia, Mouzouras, Argoylides, Aroni, Agios Nikolaos, Pazinos , Anemomyloi, Marathi, Kathiana, Kampani, Stavros, Kalorouma, Hordaki, Rizosklopo, and Agia Zoni.
Akrotiri is only ten to twenty minutes by car from Chania and ten minutes from the international airport. With its picturesque Venetian harbour and charming historical town, Chania, seeped in culture, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece.
