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.

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

Manolis, and his family are the kindest hosts we've ever experienced. The villa is beautiful, it's clean, well equipped, well looked after and beautifully located. The pool is a very welcome treat after a long day exploring the beautiful island of Crete. We were welcomed with lots of lovely fresh fruit, eggs, honey, raki and yoghurt. Manolis gave us the lowdown on great places to explore and eat, every one was a winner and we were very warmly welcomed at all the restaurants/tavernas he suggested. We had visits from an owl, we regularly saw birds of prey flying and hunting over head. The villa's located near to the E65, main road and there's easy access to plenty of local shops for your sundries. All in all this was a beautiful experience and I can't recommend it enough. We've already booked another stay there next year.
