This unique rental is located among the olive and orange groves of Neo Chorio near Chania in Greece and is perfect for a holiday in nature. The award-winning boat sailed the Cornish waters in the 1920s, and it has since been lovingly restored with a bespoke interior. There is one bedroom with a queen-size bed with linen and towels kindly provided by the hosts. The ‘Loo in the bamboo’ is a short walk from the boat and has a hot-water shower and a toilet. For co sleeping parents there is space for one infant to co sleep in the bed, or guests are welcome to throw up a pop up tent next to the boat for older kiddies.

In the charming living area, glampers can relax and unwind after an adventurous day out and about. The low ceilings, seating area and a small indoor fireplace create a cozy den to snuggle up with a book and a glass of wine during the cooler months of the year. The kitchen has everything needed to whip up a delicious snack, as well as a breakfast bar for two. Other amenities include air conditioning and on-site Wi-Fi.

Outside, glampers can kick-start the day with a walk through nature with a pony, provided by the hosts at a small extra cost, or bike and trailer hire is also available on site! Alternatively, guests can sit back with hot cup of coffee and absorb the breathtaking views of the pastoral scenery. The farm is centered in the heart of walking and cycling trails through luscious orchards, some of which lead to the River Kiliaris. Furthermore, the beautiful beaches of Kalyves are nearby and the bustling town of Chania is only a 25-minute drive from the property.
