Kavros is a small resort town in the Chania region of Crete. The mountainous backdrop is scenic enough, but the views over the sea are spectacular. There is plenty to do from a Kavros villa, without the hectic atmosphere of a resort.
The huge sandy beach that stretches out in front of Kavros is a main feature of any Kavros holiday. The beach is perfect for families, with daytime life guards during the summer, as well as having a selection of beach tavernas. The sea here is perfect for swimming, and during the summer months, the beach will certainly be a main feature of your holiday.
During the spring and summer months, self catering Kavros villas are still in great demand. Walkers are especially taken with the village as a base for exploring both the mountains and coastline. Painters will also be very happy from a Kavros apartment, as the scenery is some of the best in Crete.
There is plenty of countryside to explore from a Kavros villa too. Walkers will be drawn to the gorges of Samaria and Impros, as well as the only fresh water lake on the island, Lake Kournas.
You are well placed to explore the best of Crete from a self catering Kavros villa. All three of Crete's cities, Chania, Heraklion and Rethymnon are within easy day trip reach. There is an abundance of shopping to enjoy, as well as a chance to really explore the islands history.
The warm dry climate of Kavros makes it a year round attraction. From May until September, the beaches are popular, with temperatures reaching the mid 30's (C). During the winter, a Kavros villa is a great retreat as conditions remain mild.
Chania International Airport is just 30km from a Kavros villa. Chania receives regular flights from the UK during the summer, and there are both taxi and car hire available at the airport.
