Easy access to property
spacious villa in peaceful location with private pool
We have previously stayed at this property on several occasions. Love the private location yet only minutes drive away from restaurants, shops, beaches etc.
The peace and the pool. Brilliant!
This was our fourth holiday at Villa Oleander and we've already booked for next year. Can't say much more than that.
very spacious, lovely pool
hidden gem! very quiet and peaceful yet only 5 minute drive to Almarida beach and restaurants
Our favourite place
We have been to Villa Oleander a number of times now and just keep going back. It's peaceful and nobody bothers you yet it's just a 10 minute drive to a great choice of restaurants and the sea. The owners are always contactable if you have any queries. It's just about the perfect holiday for us. We've already booked for next year.
Villa Orleander was a great place to spend our holiday. We have rented many villas over the years but I have to say that this has been the best. Very clean and well maintained. Many hours were spent in the pool...... being a non swimmer I really liked the fact that the pool didn't have a deep end but was still deep enough for the boys to jump in. We enjoyed visiting the seaside town of Georgioupoli..... 20 minutes drive towards Rethymnon, long sandy beaches and some nice places to eat. Lake Kournas is a lovely place to visit..... tavernas were very pleasant over looking the lake. There are also pedalos to hire. We are hoping to book the villa again next year because we loved it so much and also like the location. I would definitely recommend Villa Orleander to friends and family.
The local (nearest) shops are situated in Gavalochori (5 minutes drive) and Almirida (8 minutes drive).
Gavalochori is a typical Cretan village with two mini-markets, a bakery and three tavernas. The village has its own women's co-operative selling hand made goods, a museum, and an old mill (being restored) and some Venetian wells, which are well worth exploring.
At Almirida, you will find shops, tavernas, bars, gift shops and supermarkets as well as the excellent Blue Flag beaches. There are also various family activities such as water sports and ten pin bowling.
The villa is only a short drive away from Chania (pronounced Hania), which was once the islands capital. It has a famous Venetian harbour with quayside bars and tavernas and behind the harbour you can wander through the Old Town with its beautiful Venetian buildings and shops selling handicafts, textiles, jewelery, leather goods and ceramics
Crete is the biggest and most southerly of the Greek islands.
Other Activities: Ten Pin Bowling
