Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Chorafakia, Greece Your Home Away From Home

The Greek island of Crete is one of the most popular destinations with travellers throughout the world and it is not difficult to see why! As well as some stunning scenery and bundles of history, the island has many great destinations for families, couples and solo travellers. One village that is a hidden gem on the island and is one of the best places to stay if you want some tranquillity is Chorafakia. Situated in the north-western part of Crete, in the Chania area, a Chorafakia holiday is the perfect option for those who want to not only get away from it all but also from the mass of tourists that inhabit the island throughout the year.

Things to Do on Holiday in Chorafakia, Greece

As the village is small and relatively untouched by the tourism industry, visitors on a Chorafakia holiday will not find a great amount of activities to do there. Having said this, there are opportunities to indulge in a spot of swimming, walking and fishing. For sun worshippers or for those who simply want to take in the crystal-blue sea views, there are several wonderful sandy beaches to be found in this coastal village.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Chorafakia, Greece

If you do decide to brave the masses and head out from your Chorafakia holiday rental village to explore Crete a bit more, then one of the places you should head for on the island is Knossos. This site will give you an insight into the history of the island and has the remains of some beautiful Minoan palaces which date back to the Bronze Age. Several excavations in the last 200 years have discovered much about the palaces and it is believed that Knossos was the political and cultural centre on the island in those pre-historic times.

Villa Helios proved to be a good choice as it is in the middle of beautiful countryside with every kind of ramble literally on the doorstep. The house has more space than we imagined and very well laid out. Views towards the White Mountains from the upstairs bedrooms are truly spectacular. We especially liked the colourful mediterrainean plants and shrubs growing around the house. Although just two of us this time, I can imagine it would be an excellent base for family holidays. Very good value, the owner (John) is a pleasure to deal with and responded to my questions very quickly. Will be returning with more friends sometime soon.

Favorite of ours - bedroom balcony overlooking Souda Bay in the distance. Property very clean, starter pack in fridge much appreciated and all there that you needed. Wifi was a bonus, books and games on the side welcome entertainment for evenings. Walked down to village to eat at Takis Restaurant frequently - steep short-cut leads down to village (just behind garden). Supermarket nearby, bar and other restaurants in village or further down the hill in Almyrida. We would recommend property to small group of friends (4) or small family for a quiet holiday in lovely surrounding. Rental Car a must.

The property was in excellent order when we arrived and the managers popped round to check all was well. We also met the owner which was a bonus. This villa offers a great range of kitchen equipment for self catering and is the only villa we have stayed in that had a range of very sharp knives. The private pool and terrace was a real bonus and was spotless. The information on their website and in the villa was really helpful. The beach at Almirida with its bars and and restaurants is very near and easily accessible. Don't miss the Pear tree which provides excellent fresh food. The instructions for travel and finding the villa were spot on. Our thanks to all for a lovely holiday!
