Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Maza, Crete your home away from home

Maza is a tiny village in the beautiful countryside of the Chania region of Crete, Greece. Its position in the quiet hills is quite stunning, and with just 6km to travel to the huge sandy beach at Georgioupolis, if you are looking for a beach holiday in a secluded, picturesque Cretan setting, a self catering villa in Maza, Crete could not be a better option.

A rental villa in Maza is an idyllic place to escape and relax. The leisurely atmosphere and surprising number of tavernas and cafes in Georgioupolis means relaxation is as standard. The resort town has a maze of winding streets to explore, with local pottery shops a regular feature, you can also pick up some wonderful assets for home.

The rural location means that walking and mountain climbing are fantastic ways to get to know the countryside. There are walks for everyone, although the mountainous landscape can require some effort at times. Another fantastic way to get into the serene countryside and see almost guaranteed nature is by renting a boat and heading up the river. Whatever you do when you arrive your own, very private villa in Maza, not a second will be wasted; even if you are doing nothing.

Paradise on earth, fell in love straight away!

My partner and I arrived at night so we were surprised by the beauty of the beach and the sea when we awoke in the morning. The sea was so much closer than we thought at to wake up to that every morning watching the sunrise while sitting on the balcony was like a dream. The owners are unbelievably friendly and welcoming making our stay that much more comfortable and amazing. We were greeted on arrival by Mr Xanthoudakis who provided us with some raki and wine and with some grapes and food in the fridge, even though we had just taken a rushed detour to a local shop to make sure we had everything! The apartment is a 10 mins drive away from Kissamos where there are plenty of markets and cafés, along with shops. Apartment was cleaned roughly every 3 days by Mrs Xanthoudakis and her group of cleaners who do an absolutely fantastic job and even left us anow amazing homemade berry pie one time! We will definitely have this apartment for our annual getaway holiday for the foreseeable future!

This villa has it all ...

5 of 5
The Olive House is an excellent holiday destination with easy access to both beaches and mountains ,offering something for everyone . The villa's contemporary design is tasteful and charming and has been well thought out with balconies and seating areas offering breathtaking views down to the sea over the surrounding olive groves or up to the imposing backdrop of the White Mountains . Shade is provided for those who need to hide from the Cretan sun while also allowing plenty of access to the sun worshippers by the pool. It would be possible to spend a tranquil holiday up here on the hill top surveying the delightful rural surroundings, relying on local tavernas to supply evening meals,without venturing any further afield. Yet an easy and pleasant walk along the rural road through olive groves and fruit trees will take one to the buzz of Platanias where restaurants , bars and all sorts of tourist amenities await those who might like to dance the night away .And Chania itself with culture, good restaurants and some serious shopping is only a 15 minute drive away .A great stay - we will definitely be back !
