About the property

Olive Grove Villas

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 for the excellent holiday - your villas as great, we had wonderful time. (in fairness, being without children probably helped as well).

So much so, that we'd like to book all three villas next year together.

Do you have a week in August when they are all available?"

Wonderful location and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Crete after staying in one of Tom and Claire's lovely properties. 5 star accomodation with friendly hosts. The welcome pack made a great start to our holiday too. The pool is lovely and surrounded by a beautifully kept garden. The pictures do not do it justice. The Akrotiri peninsula is lovely with great restaurants and lovely beaches. Thank you Tom and Claire we hope to return in the future.

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We feel totally refreshed after our break at Olive Grove Villas. Tom and Clare were very welcoming and helpful hosts.

The ground are very beautiful and well maintained. The pool is a generous size for 3 villas. We swam in the pool in April and it was fairly cold - our eight year old son didn’t care though and went in every day.

Everything we needed in the villas.

Hiring a car is essential for this rural location. There are so many places to eat and visit. The local monastries are beautiful. We recommend the Topolia gorge for a child friendly walk.

We would love to return and don’t hesitate to recommend the villas.

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Villa Irini is a wonderful place to spend your holidays. The Appartement was very nice, clean and with everthing you need. The pool is fantastic, also the garden with its great plants. Unfortunately we couldn´t use the barbecue, because there are so many things you can do: go to the beaches (our favorite "Kalathas"), go on a walk (Irini Gorge), visit monastaries (nice trip to Moni Katholiko with swimming in the bay), shopping in Chania ,...We really enjoyed our days in Chorafakia.

At the first day, Tom showed us the region, the different beaches and tavernas. Tom and Claire are kind and helpful. We had a problem with our car and Tom helped us very quickly.

Thank you Tom and Claire for a wonderful week.

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The photos already tell you about this lovely place: However, reality is even better. The pool is magnificent (and bigger than anything we have experience so far in other holiday homes), the garden just lovely, and the holiday villa spacious and very well equipped. There is really nothing you miss from home - because there is everything you want. Claire and Tom are warm and very friendly hosts, who take immaculate care of this place as well as correspondence without intruding your privacy. The location is excellent to explore Chania and the West coast as well as its Southern regions (by car, bike or hiiking); or just great to relax at the pool, the terrace of your holiday villa or at the great beaches in close vicinity. Akrotiri peninsula is very charming and offers several good taverns and sunset spots you do not want to miss out on.

We look forward to come back one day: Thank you, Claire and Tom!

De vakantiewoningen van Tom en Claire zijn een echte aanrader!

- woning en tuin/zwembad zijn perfect onderhouden en super proper

- fijne pergola's: ideale beschutting tegen de zon overdag, en feeëriek verlicht 's avonds

- voldoende privacy

- performante airco!

- goede restauranttips van Tom

- goede uitvalbasis voor de zandstrandjes in de omgeving

( was voor ons en de kinderen een perfecte week rust tijdens onze rondreis op Kreta)

Excellent all round

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for a relaxing holiday, or indeed if you are planning something more active. Clean, well-appointed, within walking distance of shops and restaurants, and with a fabulous pool, barbecue facilities, etc. Tom and Claire provide plenty of local intel, and their attention to detail is impressive.
