Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Chania area - Olive Grove Villas

2 bedrooms-air-conditioning, WiFi-self-catering-luxury villas-close to beaches

Relax & unwind at the Olive Grove Villas,Chania, Crete in peaceful countryside surroundings with magnificent mountain views. Take a dip in our 8m x 10m swimming pool then bask in the sun on one of our large sun terraces.

We offer a traditional self-catering villa holiday - perfect for families & couples. Our villas are well designed and furnished to a high standard with a real 'home from home' feel.

Although car hire is recommended to get the most out of this wonderful area of Western Crete, the village of Chorafakia, Chania and its amenities are within walking distance. The village has 2 mini-markets, 2 hairdressers and an internet cafe, garage, car rental as well as bus stops and a taxi rank. There are 3 good tavernas close by and 4 of the best beaches in Western Crete.

The wonderful old city of Chania is a 15 minute drive away and boasts a Venetian harbour with a large selection of fish restaurants as well as some interesting shops, restaurants and museums.

Site security: Our site is walled and gated - great for families with children.

We can also supply a child gate to the front entrance of each villa - when fitted - as long as the side door to the villa is closed, there is no exit point for a small child to escape as all other doors open onto closed balconies

Smoking: We have no objection to guests smoking on the terraces but we do not allow smoking in the villas.

Facebook : We now have a Cretanvillas page on Facebook!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thanks so much for having us, again. It was a wonderful holiday with much needed special time with George and Ed away from the rat race! We couldn't ask for anything more. You are so kind and attentive to every last detail which makes everyone's stay so relaxed and memorable: it is hard to think of ever going anywhere else. Despite the sunshine here, jumping in the pond isn't quite the same as your lovely pool. See you next year."

BRILLIANT holiday - we couldn't recommend more.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Eleni in July 09 - we are a family of 5 with our 3 boys being between 1 and 6..

Tom and Claire were very helpful indeed and provided a cot, highchair and stairgate (the gate is off the terrace so our 1 yr old was able to get everywhere but the pool area). The kitchens are very well supplied including a dishwasher and washing machine.

Th pool is fantastic - it has a small area that is 1m deep that is perfect for small children and the rest is between 1.5 and 1.7m deep. Lilos are provided (thanks!) and there are many sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool. There are only 3 villas to share the pool so it is never very crowded.

The area is full of smal,l pretty beaches and has a number of beach bars and tavernas to eat/drink in.

I cannot recommend this property enough - we have already booked to go back next year.

Blissful stay at Villa Eleni

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home after a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Villa Eleni. Villa was immaculate and Tom and Claire had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Swimming pool was excellent and the gardens were so pretty, we were even able to pick our own figs for breakfast! I would thoroughly recommend staying here for your holiday and will definitely be returning!! Thank you Tom and Claire.

Brilliant holiday again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Maria, not for the first time. The villa is exceedingly comfortable and has everything one could need. The site is very appealing with lovely gardens. The pool is clean and very inviting. Tom and Claire are wonderful hosts, without being intrusive, only too willing to share their local knowledge. We will return.

1. class Villas for relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a family (2 adults, 3 children) with Ryanair to Chania. We looked for a place where it was easy to come to the beach, but there should also be the opportunity for some sightseeing and see a little bit of Cretan nature and culture.

The Villa fit perfectly for us, it had a lot of space for the five of us. All furniture and other items in the house were high-quality and everything was spotless clean. The owner had set a nice starter-kit (bread, butter, jam, water, wine, fruits,...) into the fridge, that was very nice after a long flight and arrival at 23:50 p.m. Thank you very much, Tom and Claire!

The village of Chorafakia is located north for the city of Chania and close to at least 4 beautiful beaches. The owner had hired a car from the local bureau for us, and it was very easy to come around. There are 3 villas in the property, they are located close to each other, but not too close. We nearly didn't recognize that there were other guests in the other two villas. A beautyfull garden with olive-trees, wine and a lot of cretan flowers makes the property very green and pleasant looking and smelling. The swimming pool was a big attraction for our kids and us, it was very clean and warm. On our first day the owner showed us around the local beaches, restaurants and shops, and we really appreciated that, it saved us for at lot of time the next days.

We would definately come back to this place, I think it is hard to find a better place for us on Crete. We truelly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have your lovely family stay with us. Thank you for such a nice review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. PS I have found a good home for the white kitten - German friends have taken it and even though its a boy they have named it 'Mitzi' - for some strange reason??
