buy land in crete, build a villa, save a fortune

Cretan Life owns land with planning permission to build in a variety of locations.

We offer plots of land in different areas of the Apokoronas region in the north west of Crete, a short drive from the old Venetian port of Chania. With its unique charm, this is one of the most popular regions of Crete - which is now being reflected in the prices of land and property there.

Note: we are continuously acquiring more land, so please ask for an up to date price list.
