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.

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

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.

The traditionally built house in the foothills of Crete's White Mountains in Melidoni has so much going for it. The interior of the property is of a very high standard and the alround views are quite spectacular. We managed to do some local walks which was a real bonus. On one of the evenings we had dinner that was locally cooked by a lady from the village and the food was exceptional and was delivered to the villa, a real treat. We will have no hesitation in recomending this property and setting to our friends and family. We are off to Elounda in the east of Crete now and we hope that it is just half as good as our wonderful stay in the peaceful beautiful setting of villa Amaltheia has been.

                                                                                                    Where to start . . . 1) Location - the local village within 10 minutes walk (Chorafakia) with 2 or 3 nice restaurants and two mini markets for all your self catering set up needs. There are several beaches within a ten minute drive - we loved the shallow shelved Kalathas beach with its own island you can wade / swim out to. There are a lot more dining options in nearby Stavros or larger Kounoupidina, the latter of which also has much larger shops and several cafés. Chania itself of course is about 15 minutes drive away or a bit more if linking into the regular bus service, with countless things to see and do. 2) The Property - there are three villa bungalows, two of which front the pool directly and the other a section of the immaculately maintained garden (the tortoise family caused much deight to young son !) the spacious pool also is spotless and very well equipped with sunloungers, BBQ area inc. outside eating options etc. Caleb basically learned to swim over the ten day stay, so this pool will always hold fond memories hence forth for us all. Internally the two houses we were allocated both are exceptionally well equipped when compared to other places we have stayed in previously and really we could not think of anything else we would have needed, with at least three options of coffee making available for example - gotta love a Greek coffee pot ! The welcome pack for first breakfast was a nice touch and much appreciated - ample towels and beach towels all provided with spacious and very clean accommodation throughout. Bin bags, washing machine and dishwasher again with starter supplies all very useful and even games, books and dvds to chose from ! Very sound beds that were much to our liking. 3) The Owners - Tom and Claire were the perfect hosts willing to give as much or as little help as desired. As we had been to this part of Crete last year I don't think we gave them too much hassle hopefully ! With their long experience of the island they obviously know where to go for the best eateries, shops and day trips etc. Also their recommendation of the local car hire firm worked out for a very fair price for our stay compared to other branded options - and was very quickly sorted out to tie in seamlessly with out airport arrival and then kindly guided round to the property by Tom. Thank you both so much for sorting this element of our trip to make for a perfect Easter break. Would love to come again another time in the future.
