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 Olive House is an excellent holiday destination with easy access to both beaches and mountains ,offering something for everyone . The villa's contemporary design is tasteful and charming and has been well thought out with balconies and seating areas offering breathtaking views down to the sea over the surrounding olive groves or up to the imposing backdrop of the White Mountains . Shade is provided for those who need to hide from the Cretan sun while also allowing plenty of access to the sun worshippers by the pool. It would be possible to spend a tranquil holiday up here on the hill top surveying the delightful rural surroundings, relying on local tavernas to supply evening meals,without venturing any further afield. Yet an easy and pleasant walk along the rural road through olive groves and fruit trees will take one to the buzz of Platanias where restaurants , bars and all sorts of tourist amenities await those who might like to dance the night away .And Chania itself with culture, good restaurants and some serious shopping is only a 15 minute drive away .A great stay - we will definitely be back !

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!
