At Aethrion Boutique Homes comfort is precious but character is priceless. We have created a collection of vacation homes to offer our guests refined comforts and personal touch in a fine-art-infused environment. Our ambition is to make you feel at home.
At Aethrion Boutique Homes our persistent vision is to turn your vacation in Chania into a valuable experience, infused by the Cretan culture, the local way of life and rich feelings. This is nothing more than what Cretans offer spontaneously to their guests for centuries.
The Aethrion Boutique Homes is a brand new mansion composed of seven character apartments, fully furnished and equipped, in Chryssi Akti (Golden Beach) area. This is just 3km away from the centre of the historical city of Chania and 300m from the renowned Golden Beach, which is surrounded by a variety of sandy beaches, pine tree groves and dunes. The location enjoys sea and mountain views and beautifully combines the breath of nature with the proximity of the city.
Art and culture constitute pillars of our hospitality ethos. Our homes are decorated with original paintings, such as oil on canvas, aquarelles and engraving prints, featuring characteristic aspects of Chania. Petros Xenakis, a renowned artist with expertise on realism, has created a unique collection of seven oil on canvas paintings recapturing the Venetian harbour of Chania in late 19th and early 20th century. Sophia Maria Xenakis, a young enthusiastic artist, created a collection of eleven aquarelles capturing aspects of beach front in Chania greater area. Gregory Niolis, an experienced engraver, creates a series of engravings inspired not just by the Cretan environment, but also by music, myths and literature.
A central atrium lies at the heart of our mansion, inspires its name Aethrion itself, and forms a welcoming cosy hall surrounded by our homes. The atrium is a lobby space designed to defuse sunlight to our reception area, offer our guests comfortable corners, as well as an introduction to our aesthetics by housing one of our main paintings. Made of breathing materials, such as teak and walnut tree wood and a sculpted stone floor, our atrium is the first home experience for our guests.
