Overview

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 so much for having us, again. It was a wonderful holiday with much needed special time with George and Ed away from the rat race! We couldn't ask for anything more. You are so kind and attentive to every last detail which makes everyone's stay so relaxed and memorable: it is hard to think of ever going anywhere else. Despite the sunshine here, jumping in the pond isn't quite the same as your lovely pool. See you next year."

BRILLIANT holiday - we couldn't recommend more.

BRILLIANT holiday - we couldn't recommend more.
  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Eleni in July 09 - we are a family of 5 with our 3 boys being between 1 and 6..

Tom and Claire were very helpful indeed and provided a cot, highchair and stairgate (the gate is off the terrace so our 1 yr old was able to get everywhere but the pool area). The kitchens are very well supplied including a dishwasher and washing machine.

Th pool is fantastic - it has a small area that is 1m deep that is perfect for small children and the rest is between 1.5 and 1.7m deep. Lilos are provided (thanks!) and there are many sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool. There are only 3 villas to share the pool so it is never very crowded.

The area is full of smal,l pretty beaches and has a number of beach bars and tavernas to eat/drink in.

I cannot recommend this property enough - we have already booked to go back next year.

1. class Villas for relaxed vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We travelled as a family (2 adults, 3 children) with Ryanair to Chania. We looked for a place where it was easy to come to the beach, but there should also be the opportunity for some sightseeing and see a little bit of Cretan nature and culture.
The Villa fit perfectly for us, it had a lot of space for the five of us. All furniture and other items in the house were high-quality and everything was spotless clean. The owner had set a nice starter-kit (bread, butter, jam, water, wine, fruits,...) into the fridge, that was very nice after a long flight and arrival at 23:50 p.m. Thank you very much, Tom and Claire!
The village of Chorafakia is located north for the city of Chania and close to at least 4 beautiful beaches. The owner had hired a car from the local bureau for us, and it was very easy to come around. There are 3 villas in the property, they are located close to each other, but not too close. We nearly didn't recognize that there were other guests in the other two villas. A beautyfull garden with olive-trees, wine and a lot of cretan flowers makes the property very green and pleasant looking and smelling. The swimming pool was a big attraction for our kids and us, it was very clean and warm. On our first day the owner showed us around the local beaches, restaurants and shops, and we really appreciated that, it saved us for at lot of time the next days.
We would definately come back to this place, I think it is hard to find a better place for us on Crete. We truelly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have your lovely family stay with us.

Thank you for such a nice review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

PS I have found a good home for the white kitten - German friends have taken it and even though its a boy they have named it 'Mitzi' - for some strange reason??

Fantastic stay at Villa Eleni

  • 5 out of 5
We were overwhelmed by the welcome we received from Tom & Claire. After kindly picking us up from the airport at midnight we arrived at the superb Villa Eleni. The villa was so well decorated and kitted out, it was a home-from-home. They had even provided some breakfast items for our first morning and arranged the hire car for us from the local village to be dropped off at the villas too.Tom then took us on a tour to familiarise us with everything in the local area.We couldn't have asked for better service. The property was beautifully clean and well maintained and the attention to detail was superb. The gardens and pool we're stunning. Thank you so much for an amazing holiday- we hope to see you again very soon! Rachel, Andy and Vicky JANE

Perfect apartment in great surrounding!!

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay in Villa Eleni was just perfect. The apartment was fully equipped, very clean and really cozy. As well outside as inside. The pool was clean and very pleasant and the area was interesting and very beautiful. Tom and Claire were extremely friendly and helpful in showing us around and giving great advise on good restaurants (the local food is great!) and beaches. Chania is a great lively town and we visited a lot of beaches but we liked the ones on the peninsula the best! We stayed with our baby and Tom and Claire arranged that everything was there for her. It is also perfect with small children. We definitely recommend this place!

Fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful fortnight in Crete. The accommodation and surrounding grounds were faultless. The Villa was spotless and had every mod con that we needed. The pool was a welcome distraction from the relentless sun and the peaceful tranquil setting was a pleasure to behold.
The local tavernas were delightful and we especially liked Bahar and Ramblers. The Golden Wok chinese was very pleasant. Our hosts were one of the best features of our stay. They're attention to detail on the things that a holiday maker needs...was stunning. They were always there when needed and they went the extra mile to ensure our stay was memorable.From meeting us on arrival and departure, to pointing out the best tavernas beaches and supermarkets on our welcome tour! Thanks Tom & Claire... we hope to return and will always recommend your hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you too! It's always a pleasure to meet such lovely people.

The short tour that Tom provides is a good idea as the tavernas and beaches are spread around the peninsula, all within a 10 minute drive though. Plus people are likely to miss hidden gems such as Melika's beach.
