They are beautifully decorated with existing and planted flowers and trees, respecting the local flora – mainly lemon trees and olive trees.

Choose according to your mood!
The distinctive character of Douliana with the old winding alleys and the urban planning uniformity are a genuine attraction, offering owners the ability not only to enjoy the residence for themselves but also to make use of the property as a rental investment.
The property can be managed by a local management company that will be responsible for the maintenance and management of the common areas. The managing company can also provide home management and rental services (as an option for the buyer).
Douliana: A traditional village strategically located between the cities of Chania and Rethymnon, allowing easy access to both amazing destinations! Douliana is a traditionally preserved community with its own unique “personality”, revealing the history of Crete. Byzantine icons and beautiful architecture, the village’s coffee shop (“kafenio” in Greek) at the central square and a fine tavern with authentic delicious Cretan dishes.
The nearest beach is just 3 km away. By car, you can reach the stunning beaches of Apokoronas in less than 10 minutes. The distance to Chania city is 20km, to the port of Souda also 20km, and to the airport 30km. You can reach all of the above in 20-30 minutes time.
Apokoronas Peninsula: Situated at the foot of the White Mountains (“Lefka Ori” in Greek). Apokoronas features a surprisingly wide selection of traditional Cretan villages, successfully combining breathtaking views of the Cretan Sea, a stunning natural environment and magnificent sandy beaches. Some of the villages to explore:
- Vamos – A genuine back-to-nature experience.
- Kefalas – The ideal “observation post” over the Cretan Sea.
- Almyrida – Laid-back beach culture.
- Vrisses – An ideal hideaway with vast amounts of running water and rich vegetation.
