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.

Places to visit on holiday in Tavronitis, Greece

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. There are also several museums in the town, including the Archaeological Museum, which offers a history of the many different sets of ruins and lost cities which may be seen in the area. The War Museum and Naval Museum are both also worth a look.

Weather in Tavronitis, Greece

The location of Tavronitis on Crete means that summers are hot and dry, with temperatures of 24C to 27C on most summer days, and very rarely a rainy day throughout June to August. The weather remains mild and relatively dry throughout the autumn and spring, making a villa in Tavronitis a pleasant escape when the summer crowds have gone.

Heraklion, Crete’s main city, is also well worth a day-trip from Tavronitis where visitors can see the town’s ancient fortress, Knossos Palace. There are of course also plenty of shopping opportunities in the town where visitors can pick up souvenirs, and lots of bars and restaurants for a lively night out.

Flights to Tavronitis, Greece

Tavronitis is served by Heraklion Airport (HER), which is located in the centre of the north coast, 160km from Tavronitis.

A beautiful, private retreat in Western Crete...

5 of 5
From the moment we park up at the top road and look down the steep slope past the heavily-laden fruit trees towards Bibby Villa we know we've found somewhere special. The sense of remoteness and space are what strikes us first, with the big skies and the splendid view westwards towards distant villages and the Rodhopou peninsula. Entering the villa itself we find a spacious and sensitively-decorated living area with adjacent well-appointed kitchen with everything we might need. The owner's locally-based support team have very kindly provided a substantial `welcome pack' of milk, bread, cheese and ham and other items so we won't need to go shopping immediately. We open the windows and shutters and explore the wide balcony, and look down at the inviting `infinity' swimming pool. A quick toe-dip in the water confirms it's a tad cold - it's October after all - but no matter, when the weather warms up there'll be plenty of opportunities for a swim. As we settle in to our holiday we realise that what's especially nice about the villa and its environs is that we don't feel compelled to get up early every day to go out and explore (...though we do visit quite a lot of the Western end of the island) - it's just nice to have a leisurely breakfast on the balcony, select a book from the thoughtfully provided small library, then relax in the sun on the terrace loungers, reading and listening to the songbirds and the hawks wheeling high overhead. We `cook in' on a few evenings during the week and, though the weather's getting a bit nippy, eat on the balcony with a bottle of splendid local red or rose wine, with a shot or two of raki to round off the evening - just perfect! We're well looked after by the owner's local team - a minor mishap with a bedroom door handle is swiftly rectified by "RHM" - and housekeeper Chris is an excellent source of recommendations for places to eat and visit. But all too quickly our week passes by and it's time to return home. We lock up, return the key to the key safe, and with a last wistful backward glance we drive back down the road towards Chania and the airport. But our memories of Bibby Villa are fixed now, and we know we'll be back some time. Many thanks to Enid for the opportunity to stay in your lovely villa ! Geoff & Julia, UK
