Things to do

Chania Old Town:

The charming Old Town of Chania is something to be enjoyed. Narrow, winding streets are dotted with shops, restaurants, and cafés where travellers can stroll and relax. This part of Chania was established by the Venetians and one can definitely see and feel the Italian influence.

The Fortress of Frangokastello:

The Frangokastello Fortress was built between the period 1371 - 1374 BC and was set up along the coast as a military base for the Venetian army. It is rectangular in shape with massive towers at the corner, and there is an impressive gate with the Venetian coat of arms.

Oldest Lighthouse in Greece:

Greece's oldest lighthouse can be found in the old harbour of Chania. This, like much of the city, was originally constructed by the Venetians. However when the Turks ruled the city, they bequeathed Crete to the Egyptians. Parts of this lighthouse were rebuilt to suit their style, making the lighthouse truly unique.

The Beach of Platanias Chania:

The Beach of Platanias is located approximately seven miles from Chania. It is one of Crete's most developed beach and resort areas. Water activities such as snorkelling, water skiing, and boat tours are plentiful on this Blue Flag certified beach. There are also a number of shops, bars, and restaurants nearby.

The Naval Museum:

Chania's Naval Museum (also called Maritime Museum) is a great place to learn about the history of Crete. Visitors can view a multitude of models of ancient ships, a model of the original fortifications and war relics as well as artefacts dating back to the Bronze Age.

The Castle of Gramvoussa:

The remote island of Gramvoussa is easily reached from Chania and is home to an impressive castle dating back to Medieval times. The castle was built by the Venetians in 1579 and though a bit difficult to reach, the view of the Aegean Sea from the castle is truly breathtaking.

It is completely child friendly, beautifully decorated with an amazing pool and bbq area. George and Andrie were perfect hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. George insisted on driving us to a supermarket and Andrie cooked us some gorgeous stuffed vegetables. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The local area is lovely, lots of nice bars and restaurants and the beach is perfect. Our kids loved swimming and snorkeling in the sea. We had thought about hiring a car but found the local area and Villa meliti so lovely and relaxing we felt we didn't need to.Taxis are easy to book and reasonable too. Thanks Andrie and George for a truly memorable holiday ...

The location is quiet but only a short drive (or a 15 min nature walk) to the bustling center of Platanias village. The villa is modern, spacious, fully equipped and decorated to a high standard. It enjoys the most stunning views all around the property and breathtaking sunsets from the balcony where we enjoyed many meals. Mike and Lucy are the most welcoming hosts with plenty of recommendations for things to do in the area and good local knowledge. A very nice touch was the welcome pack of goodies on arrival. We would unreservedly recommend this villa. Dean and Angela, Chippenham, UK

The villa is not overlooked yet offers stunning views down to the sea. The villa is well built and furnished with a fantastic covered area for the outside dining table which also includes a massive BBQ built in. The pool is a good size although does not have a shallow end as it has a uniform depth of just over 5ft. A 10 minute stroll back down the track to Ano Vouves where the famous olive tree is will bring you to the Taverna which is run by a family and whilst it may look a bit sleepy the service is fantastic and the food superb - it is rustic Cretan home cooking - if you don't eat there you are really missing out. Within easy driving reach are the beaches of Falassarna and Elafonisi which must not be missed. On the way to Kastelli as you drive down the road from the direction of Kolimbari lookout for Nopigia beach and enjoy the almost secret beach with a Taverna on it - almost as good as the secret beach at Afrata. A great holiday ! The bad bits - only one really. The internet is provided by a Wi-Fi dongle that guests have to purchase a 'top up' for. Either Vodafone or the Dongle are broken as we actually only got a fraction of the data we'd paid for. The villa owners are now aware and I'm sure they will sort this out quickly. Danny & Family
