3 LUXURY VILLAS with a fantastic pool. EOT 1042K123K2552101 - Villa Irene



Updated: 27-Oct-2016
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 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?"

Super Fewo

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren vom 24.05. bis 31.05. zu Gast bei Tom und Claire. Super Ferienhaus. Tolle Ausstattung. Sehr guter Service von Tom und Claire. Toller Pool, perfekter Grill. Wir haben uns rundum Wohlgefühlt. Eines der besten Ferienhäuser, welches wir in den letzten 10 Jahren gemietet haben.

Tom and Claire - thank you very much. We´ll be back.

Perfect relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Eleni for 9 nights with our 2 small children and had a fantastic holiday. The villas are so well equipped with everything you could need including beach gear, books and DVDs. Tom and Claire are extremely welcoming and helpful. They went above and beyond, organising our car hire, meeting us at the airport, taking us for a drive around the local area and accommodating us for an extra night when our flight was cancelled. They even provided a welcome hamper of food. The pool is beautiful, a great size and very well maintained as are the pretty gardens. The villa itself was immaculate and homely with a terrace plus additional balcony to the master bedroom. Location wise it's a short drive to the nearest village with half a dozen superb family friendly beaches and many restaurants all within 10-20 minute drive. We especially liked the French Arabic place on Stavros beach. In short, our holiday was perfect and we wouldn't hesitate to go back.

It's more beautifull than seen in the pictures...

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. The villa is situated at a convenient location to go to Chania or the several beautiful beaches on the peninsula.

Also the airport is nearby which saves a lot of travelling time.

There are a lot of taverns and restaurants in the area but you do need a car to go there.

We’ve rented a car for the whole holiday which is necessary.

As far as the villa is concerned, everything you need is available in the villa. The kitchen is well equipped. The villas are very very clean and well maintained as wel as the garden and BBQ area.

When we arrived there were already some things in the fridge like wine, few bears and soft drinks to get your holiday started . Things like salt, al kind of herbs, sugar, thee where also there.

Even tablets for the dishwasher and detergent for the laundry (even though we had these thing with us).

There is a bluetooth speaker in the villa that I used with my iPhone to listen to Spotify.

Beach towels are already there which is also nice.

Even though there are 3 villa’s, you have a lot of privacy because of the way the villas are situated and also because of the beautiful garden. The pool area is big enough for the 3 villa’s. The pool also.

As far as Tom and Claire is concerned…..they are such nice people. Always concerned if you need something like clean towels or any information about the area. Tom even offered to drive us around to some nice beaches in the area.

Because we went home late in the evening we still had a whole day but they arranged for us to freshen up at an apartment they had available in the village. Thank you for that, Tom and Claire.

I am sure we will go back there. Maybe even next year.

Absolutely lovely, a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Claire have created the perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The setting and gardens are a testiment to all their hard work and there was nothing that was too much trouble. The house was spotless with everything that you need, the pool was beautiful (a little chilly at this time of year but our 12 year old didn't seem to mind) and the village is an easy 15 minute stroll with lovely tavernas, supermarket and pharmacy. Great beaches only a few minutes drive away. Tom even took the time to take us on a tour of the best places to go. Lovely people, great house in a great location. We will definately be going back. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.

September family holidays

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Irini for a week in September and had a fabulous experience. The communication with Claire & Tom before we arrived was excellent and Tom was kindly waiting for us at the airport to guide us to the villa.

The place was impeccable, very well equipped and perfect location to reach Stavros (5 minutes away) or Marathi (20 min drive) beaches!

The house had everything you might need, the gardens are very beautiful and the swimming pool offers the possibility to stay in and still enjoy the sun!

The Villa is fab place for families and very children friendly.

We will definitely stay here again and recommend this place!

A beautiful chill out

  • 5 of 5

What a find!! We stayed here for a week with our son and his friend (15 yr olds). Really well equipped villa, a real home from home. We had a car, which we only used to pop to the supermarket and to eat in the evenings - the pool area was too inviting for us to leave and absolutely spotless.

We ate at Boys, Ramblers, Sunset - all very good value and lovely food (burgers, steaks, moussaka, tuna fish).

It is a little walk to the tavernas (about 20 mins) so we used the car.

Twice we used the great barbecue area but to be honest by the time you buy the meat you might as well eat out (very reasonable).

Some lovely little beaches dotted around - so chilled!

Tom and Claire are lovely and really go out of their way to make sure everything is good for you:)

We are planning to return next year handbook the 3 villas so that we can take the family and have the place to ourselves.

It was very hot the week we were there so we didn't venture too far but we will probably go back, just the 2 of us, and do some walking.

I have nothing negative to say as we just loved it!

Thank you Tom and Claire!
