Make a holiday rental home or villa in Tavronitis, Greece your home away from home

Surrounded by olive trees and orange groves of the Chania region, the beautiful isolated beaches around Tavronitis can feel a million miles from the busier beach resorts on the island of Crete. A beachside villa in Tavronitis makes an ideal destination for couples and families looking to escape the hordes, while still being within easy reach of different activities available on the island.

Things to do in Tavronitis, Greece

The beaches around Tavronitis are much less busy than those around the major Crete resorts, so offer the ideal place for visitors to relax in the sun with a book. A dip in the sea is a great place to cool down on a summer day, and snorkelling is a great way to explore the rocky outcrops and bays around the area.

Visitors in self-catering accommodation in Tavronitis can stock up on fresh local produce at several small, local shops in the area, an experience in itself. There are also several restaurants down along the beach in Tavronitis, where visitors can sample traditional Greek food and occasionally see traditional Greek dance performances.

The mountainous nature of the area around Tavronitis lends itself well to hiking, and there are several trails around the area for visitors who want to get out and explore the region. In the mountains near the village there are also opportunities for mountain biking, rock climbing, canyoning and horse riding.

There are also plenty of opportunities for other activities in other resorts on Crete such as Platanias including Scuba diving, mini-golf, fishing, dolphin watching, go-karting and bungy jumping.

Just 22km down the road from Tavronitis is the town of Chania, which is home to Minoan remains as well as ancient Greek and Roman ruins.

The War Museum and Naval Museum are both also worth a look.

Lovely stay in the hill of Crete

5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Erontas, the first of the two Villas in the little Maheri village. The Villa is spacious, comfortable and very well kept. We enjoyed a lot its terrace to drink an aperitif at sunset and relax after a day of activities. Katerina is a wonderful host and will help with all you need. The location feels a bit isolated, but it allowed us to explore quite a bit of the island. A definite recommendation. Argia

We had a fantastic holiday at Evelina's house, from the moment we arrived Evelina and her family were there to greet us, Evelina then took us round the house to familiarise us with all the amenities and rooms, before she left she advised when the housekeeper would be in and also asked if we would like her to arrange for a traditional Cretan meal to be cooked by a family member and brought into the house on a day of our choice, we said we would love to take her up on the offer and said we would email her with a day to suit. The house was decorated to the highest standard and the views from the rooftop terrace were breathtaking. Evelina supplied water, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls,soap powder and conditioner for washing, something that we have always had to buy ourselves when arriving at previous holiday rentals. We had the most amazing chilled holiday at Evelina's house and was made to feel welcome and part of Evilana's family during our stay, we were sad to leave, but will definitely be returning not only for our holiday, but to see Evelina and her family again. Thank you Evelina to you and your family for making us feel welcome in your beautiful home in Chania. Look forward to seeing you again.
