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.

The villa is tastefully decorated with everything you need for a pleasant stay. It is located on top of the traditional village of Tavronitis surrounded by olive trees,nature and an amazing scenery of mountains and the ocean. Location is great because in 20 min walking you can also reach tavernas,bar,restaurant and also the beach.It is a place where you find restfulness and relaxation especially on the sunny terrace at day times and at clear nights with a sky full of stars. It has a nice garden and outdoor area with several seats and a big swimming pool. We love to have dinner oustside with BBQ! The place itself is great, clean and well equipped 5 stars and I will recommended to everybody!

The sea was so much closer than we thought at to wake up to that every morning watching the sunrise while sitting on the balcony was like a dream. The owners are unbelievably friendly and welcoming making our stay that much more comfortable and amazing. We were greeted on arrival by Mr Xanthoudakis who provided us with some raki and wine and with some grapes and food in the fridge, even though we had just taken a rushed detour to a local shop to make sure we had everything! The apartment is a 10 mins drive away from Kissamos where there are plenty of markets and cafés, along with shops. Apartment was cleaned roughly every 3 days by Mrs Xanthoudakis and her group of cleaners who do an absolutely fantastic job and even left us anow amazing homemade berry pie one time! We will definitely have this apartment for our annual getaway holiday for the foreseeable future!

Diesmal zum Sommerausklang Ende September/Anfang Oktober. Wir waren wieder begeistert: das Haus und die ruhige Lage im wunderbaren Westen Kretas, dazu Sonnenschein und noch warmes Meer (24 °), mehr brauchen wir nicht zur Erholung. Das Haus war tadellos, z.T. mit neuen Möbeln es fehlte uns einfach nichts. Dazu der 2 x wöchentliche Reinigungsdienst, sowie die Möglichkeit Essen ins Haus/bzw. auf die Terrasse bestellen zu können. Die Sonnenuntergänge auf der Terrasse und der grandiose Sternenhimmel waren beeindruckend. Wir hatten diesmal Rennräder organisiert, mit denen wir großartige Touren in der Umgebung machen konnten. Obwohl zu dieser Zeit alle Häuser belegt waren, fühlten wir uns ganz alleine in dieser Umgebung, es war immer sehr ruhig. Die Betreuung durch Niko, den Manager funktionierte von Anfang an bestens, e-mails werden sofort beantwortet, Wünsche wenn möglich erfüllt. Uneingeschränkte 5 Sterne!
