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 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.

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

Just wanted to say that Villa Meliti was a wow for us as soon as we arrived. It's stunningly modern with every possible gadget you would have at home. Andrie & George went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. When we arrived there was a beautiful large bowl full of fruit, bottle of wine, their very own pressed olive oil and more.. Andrie even took us shopping to make the start of our holiday even easier than it was. We had very young children with us and even they were catered for with cots, high chair and lovely toys too. I really can't recommend this lovely villa enough.

Luxurious villa in exquisite mountain village

5 of 5
What is not to love about this place? We were there the first fortnight of September. The village itself, Machairoi, is in a stunning location amongst verdant hills and with a tiny church clinging to the mountain above. We'd seen it two years before - one of those places that looks magical from a distance. We hadn't realised it was one and the same place until we arrived, but it immediately made us feel at home. It's an idyllic, sleepy place with a cute square and villagers going about their lives with an occasional nod, wave, yassas or kalispera when we headed out for a walk. The round trip to Nerochori was a beautiful walk, best done after 5 when then sun is beginning to descend behind the mountains. Raises the heart rate, some of those hills! Katerina met us at the villa with a warm welcome and some tips on where to go for some late Sunday lunch food. Armenoi - perfect choice sitting amongst the Cretan sunday family revellers under the shade of some trees. The villa is well-appointed - and a decent collection of cooking and household things already in stock (better than most). It was a percent size for us two, with a sweet courtyard that got a good balance of sun and shade - breakfast outdoors is a true joy of a holiday. Katerina makes sure the villa is cleaned twice a week, which also feels like a luxury, and was always thoughtfully on hand should we need her advice. All in all, delightful. Right up to and including the sweet gifts her Mother Olga gave to us to take home. Thank you! We'll definitely be back.
