3 LUXURY VILLAS WITH A FANTASTIC POOL. EOT 1042K123K2552101

Special Offer: September Sunshine - special offer! 26 August - 18 September

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Chorafakia - Olive Grove Villas

2 bedrooms-air-conditioning, WiFi-self-catering-luxury villas-close to beaches

Relax & unwind at the Olive Grove Villas,Chania, Crete in peaceful countryside surroundings with magnificent mountain views. Take a dip in our 8m x 10m swimming pool then bask in the sun on one of our large sun terraces.

We offer a traditional self-catering villa holiday - perfect for families & couples. Our villas are well designed and furnished to a high standard with a real 'home from home' feel.

Although car hire is recommended to get the most out of this wonderful area of Western Crete, the village of Chorafakia, Chania and its amenities are within walking distance. The village has 2 mini-markets, 2 hairdressers and an internet cafe, garage, car rental as well as bus stops and a taxi rank. There are 3 good tavernas close by and 4 of the best beaches in Western Crete.

The wonderful old city of Chania is a 15 minute drive away and boasts a Venetian harbour with a large selection of fish restaurants as well as some interesting shops, restaurants and museums.

Site security: Our site is walled and gated - great for families with children.

We can also supply a child gate to the front entrance of each villa - when fitted - as long as the side door to the villa is closed, there is no exit point for a small child to escape as all other doors open onto closed balconies

Smoking: We have no objection to guests smoking on the terraces but we do not allow smoking in the villas.

Facebook : We now have a Cretanvillas page on Facebook!

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Thanks for the excellent holiday - your villas as great, we had wonderful time. (in fairness, being without children probably helped as well).



So much so, that we'd like to book all three villas next year together.

Do you have a week in August when they are all available?"

Super Fewo

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren vom 24.05. bis 31.05. zu Gast bei Tom und Claire. Super Ferienhaus. Tolle Ausstattung. Sehr guter Service von Tom und Claire. Toller Pool, perfekter Grill. Wir haben uns rundum Wohlgefühlt. Eines der besten Ferienhäuser, welches wir in den letzten 10 Jahren gemietet haben.
Tom and Claire - thank you very much. We´ll be back.

Perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a super holiday at Olive Grove villas. Claire and Tom provide exceptional service. Being met at the airport, the quick tour of the area and groceries on arrival were such nice touches. The villas are great for families as they combine both privacy and a chance for the kids (and their parents) to socialise at the pool or over a BBQ. The villas are well equipped, and the proximity to both Chania and the airport make them very accessible. Thanks Tom and Claire, we hope to return!

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from a fantastic holiday in Crete. Villa Irene was just fantastic. It had everything you could think of - lovely clean well equipped house, really lovely pool and as for its owners, Tom and Claire, they could not be more helpful and friendly. Met us at the airport, showed us where the local shops, beaches are and recommended restaurants for us when we arrived. And as for Crete itself and especially the Akrotiri peninsula - beautiful beaches and the food was delicious everywhere we went - all fresh local produce and very well priced. Can't wait to return.

exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 out of 5
I've stayed in Crete about 8 times over the last 25 years and absolutely love the island! These villas by far surpass anywhere we've ever stayed before - they are wonderful. They are spotless, well equipped (you could happily live in them!), and thoughtfuly planned. The owners (Claire and Tom) are two of the lovliest people you could ever wish to meet, and, perhaps more importantly, put their heart and soul into looking after the villas and their guests. The website and photos don't do the place justice!

Before arriving, Claire was so fast to respond to any questions we had that I sometimes felt rude for not acknowledging her replies quickly enough! She is completely 'down to earth' and very practical in all of her replies - very impressive and trustworthy. (I mention this because we were a bit nervous about booking through homeaway! No need for it on this occasion!) Tom met us at the airport and within 20 minutes of arriving at the villa our car had arrived. Next day he gave us a quick tour of the area and pointed out some of the best places to eat etc. They are a fantastic team, and are always nearby, but never intrusive!

OK, so the actual holiday: the villa was a fantastic base, the pool area is lovely and has lots of room and beds (plus spare beds that you can take to the beach), also lilos and toys for children. The garden around the pool and villas is stunning. Horafakia is a perfect greek village - with a really decent mini market, a couple of lovely tavernas and a fantastic 'sports bar' (we saw Burnley get promoted to the PL when we were here!) which serves the best steaks ever! The wifi is also really good - we regularly listened to radio 2 while lying by the pool! There are lovely beaches close by (kalathas was our fave - clear sea, sand and the best beach taverna ever - try the baked lamb!).Chania, possibly my fave city in the world, is only a short drive (and Tom will tell you the best place to park!).

I've waffled on too much! All I can say is we can't wait to come back! And now I'm scared that it'll be booked up! Perhaps I should have kept quiet! I can honestly say that as long as you don't mind driving, you won't be disappointed. Prepare for a fantastic holiday!

Clean, comfortable, relaxing.

  • 5 out of 5
This was the second time my partner & I have stayed here. The property's are like home from home and very comfortable and clean. Pool lovely & well maintained. Gardens are very pretty. And owners welcoming & friendly. We would opt to stay here again as the area is nice and authentic too with good eateries in the village, safe beaches nearby, a short distance from Chania airport which is handy and friendly locals. We have been visiting Crete for 12 years and have stayed all over the island from Sitia to Paleochora and this is one of the best value for money places we have found especially considering the facilities on offer like a washing machine and dishwasher - which was handy for us as we were on a two centre trip and so were able to do some washing before we moved on. The owners work hard to make sure you are looked after and are able to offer to good advice if needed - like telling me where the dentist was when I chipped a filling! I only hope they don't get booked up too quick next year as we'd like to go back again. We particularly liked Boys grill taverna in the village which was about a 5 min drive or a 20 min walk via the back lane - the locals there made us very welcome and the owner insisted on plying us with wine...We Love Crete!

Excellent Introduction to International Travel

  • 5 out of 5
This was my daughter and I first trip outside of the US and we were in search of as much sun as we could possibly get. We found it all at the Olive Grove Villas!
I came across the Villas via the internet, sent an inquiry by email and made reservations. All of this was easily and speedily handled by the owner/operators of the Villas. We made reservations a year in advance and they sent emails (and a Christmas card!) keeping in touch during the intervening months.
Once we arrived at the Chania Airport, we were greeted by Tom, the owner, (we didn't rent a car) and he drove us to the villa. Tom and Clair were wonderful! The next day, we were given a tour of the village Chorafakia and he was kind enough to take us to a grocery store to do a bit of shopping.
The villa was an experience in and of itself! The gardens, the pool & barbecue area are absolutely beautiful! The villa was squeaky clean and very well appointed. We immediately knew we had chosen the perfect place when we saw what was stashed away in the wardrobes. The beds are comfortable and there's the perfect amount of room in the main area, besides why would you want to stay inside once you see the pool? The pool and surrounding area was clean and well kept. It was so cool to see the grape vines with fruit (which were delicious!) and the olive trees, and flowers and the wonderful cicadas. We live in the Pacific Northwest so we only get to see and hear them in movies.
We ate at a couple of the local establishments, both were excellent with friendly service. The gold star goes, hands down, to the owner/operators of the villas. They were both very kind and helpful, even helped us rent a car for the last day so we could get to the airport. I have definitely recommended the Olive Grove Villas to others and we are already making plans to return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your holiday. We were initially concerned when you decided not to rent a car during your stay as it isn't that easy to get around with the beaches being spread around the peninsular - but you managed fine and even visited Knososs. It was a real pleasure to have had you stay with us and we look forward to meeting you again.
