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.

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

We always try to find a small nice property instead of big international hotels in every trip we do and after staying in many hotels all around the world, we are 100% sure that Villa Azure was our best ever choice. The location is very close to the beach (1 minute walk) and still very quiet. The grounds with the pool are in perfect condition with greens and many chairs, coaches to relax with a chilled drink. Airport is 20 mins by car. Rooms are spotlessly clean and large enough to feel yourself comfortable even for a long stay. We would like to mention that every detail and every corner of the interiors and exteriors are built with love and perfect taste. The owners are most courteous people we have come across in the near past, they have a unique gentle character of hospitality. It took us a while to re-adjust to the city once back home: we lived a dream at Villa Azure and we hope to be able to go back one day!

It was perfect! We had the sea view apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well sized and had a wonderful sea view. Xristina and her husband were available if needed and often dropped products from their farm. The location of the apartment was ideal and we will definitely be staying here again. This holiday was our 7th year visiting Crete and we found the location and apartment perfect for what we wanted from the holiday. Excellent holiday, excellent apartment, excellent location.
