Villa Alethea is a 4 bedroom villa that sleeps up to 10 persons and is one of a three villa complex (Alethea, Iris and Hanna) which are totally independent and private from each other. They are located just outside the small village of Polimarchi which is a couple of kilometres inland from coastal Tavronitis in western Crete. These traditional villas have wonderful panoramic mountain and sea views.
Tourism still remains pretty low key in Tavronitis and the village retains an authentic ambience with very friendly shopkeepers. There are a couple of supermarkets, tavernas and cafes as well as a butcher and a bakery. A local Saturday market in the nearby village of Voukalies will keep you supplied with wonderful fresh, colourful fruit and vegetables, local cheeses and honey. There are 3 or 4 tavernas strung along the pebbly beach which is mostly lined with tamarisk trees. Even in high season you can still find your own space on the beach.
The area also makes an excellent starting point for exploring beautiful western Crete whether your interests be sightseeing, archaeological, driving, water sports, walking, cycling or simply relaxing and enjoying some of the wonderful beaches. A visit to Chania, the region’s capital some 30kms away, is a ‘must’ with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and beautiful Venetian harbour, and also to the nearer lively resort of Platanias, both with an abundance of restaurants, shops and bars and nightlife.
