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.

The rooms are very comfortable and the views stunning. I especially loved the roof terrace and swimming in the infinity pool. We enjoyed barbacueing in the evenings. Alexandra was a welcoming, generous host who made sure that we tried some of the delicious local specialties. Thoroughly recommend!

It has everything a home away from home needs and is very relaxing, especially the balcony and patio area where we spent most of our time when at the villa. The kitchen is well equipped along with the living area where books, beach supplies, music facilities and even games were provided which all came in useful. During our stay we walked to all the local areas including bars, restaurants and the beach although a rental car is recommended if you wish to view more of the beautiful island. Overall we had a brilliant holiday and cannot wait to return.

We were met by our host Mike when we arrived at the ungodly hour of 2am. A delicious meal had been prepared by his wife Lucy which we devoured. They were also kind enough to provide us with a bottle of wine and other essentials! The house enjoys a lofty situation surrounded by magnificent olive groves and views which are spectacular. It was impeccably clean, wonderfully spacious and has been designed with great attention to detail. It is really beautiful. The pool was sublime. At the end of our stay we were rather stymied by an 11am changeover and late flight but Mike invited us to spend the afternoon with them swimming off their boat and lunching at a nearby taverna. I cannot praise the Olive House or our hosts too highly, nothing was too much trouble for them.
