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!

Fabulous villas, pool and owners!

  • 5 of 5

We went to the villas in May and had a fantastic holiday! We were a party of 8 (grandparents, children and grandchildren) and rented out all 3 villas so we had the whole pool, BBQ areas and garden to ourselves.

Tom and Claire, the owners, were brilliant right from the beginning of booking- quick to respond to emails and any questions we had. At the start of the holiday, they met the first part of our party at the airport and pointed out local shops, beaches and restaurants. They were available throughout the holiday for anything else we wanted to know.

The villas were all great - very clean, very homely and had everything you need with regards to equipment, appliances, Utensils and towels. There is even dishwasher tablets, washing powder etc - the little things that you always end up buying at the beginning of a holiday! Tom and Claire had also left wine, water, olive oil, and a few other things for when we arrived - a lovely touch and much appreciated!

The gardens and swimming pool are beautiful. It is all enclosed so we had no worries about our 6 year old wandering off anywhere. The swimming pool is a brilliant size for just 3 villas and there are pool and garden toys available to use. BBQ areas are lovely.

The little town nearby is a short walk away with supermarkets and a couple of tavernas which we enjoyed going to. The nearby beaches were gorgeous.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would definitely recommend the villas to stay in. We thought they were excellent value for the price we paid and Tom and Claire are fantastic owners - you really couldn't ask for nicer! We definitely hope to return at some point in the future. Thank you to you both for a great holiday!

Parfait !!!

  • 5 of 5

Des superbes vacances dans un lieu idéal.

Tom et Claire sont aux petits soins, pleins de petites attentions pour leurs hôtes.

Les villas sont parfaitement équipées et très confortable, elles se fondent dans un jardin luxuriant donnant accès à une très jolie piscine.

Le barbecue et le patio au bord de la piscine favorisent les soirées entre voisins... si affinités

Non loin de Chania pour les visites et le tourisme.

C'est parfait !

Home from Home plus glorious sunshine !

  • 5 of 5

Where to start . . .

1) Location - the local village within 10 minutes walk (Chorafakia) with 2 or 3 nice restaurants and two mini markets for all your self catering set up needs. There are several beaches within a ten minute drive - we loved the shallow shelved Kalathas beach with its own island you can wade / swim out to. There are a lot more dining options in nearby Stavros or larger Kounoupidina, the latter of which also has much larger shops and several cafés. Chania itself of course is about 15 minutes drive away or a bit more if linking into the regular bus service, with countless things to see and do.

2) The Property - there are three villa bungalows, two of which front the pool directly and the other a section of the immaculately maintained garden (the tortoise family caused much deight to young son !) the spacious pool also is spotless and very well equipped with sunloungers, BBQ area inc. outside eating options etc. Caleb basically learned to swim over the ten day stay, so this pool will always hold fond memories hence forth for us all.

Internally the two houses we were allocated both are exceptionally well equipped when compared to other places we have stayed in previously and really we could not think of anything else we would have needed, with at least three options of coffee making available for example - gotta love a Greek coffee pot ! The welcome pack for first breakfast was a nice touch and much appreciated - ample towels and beach towels all provided with spacious and very clean accommodation throughout. Bin bags, washing machine and dishwasher again with starter supplies all very useful and even games, books and dvds to chose from ! Very sound beds that were much to our liking.

3) The Owners - Tom and Claire were the perfect hosts willing to give as much or as little help as desired. As we had been to this part of Crete last year I don't think we gave them too much hassle hopefully ! With their long experience of the island they obviously know where to go for the best eateries, shops and day trips etc. Also their recommendation of the local car hire firm worked out for a very fair price for our stay compared to other branded options - and was very quickly sorted out to tie in seamlessly with out airport arrival and then kindly guided round to the property by Tom.

Thank you both so much for sorting this element of our trip to make for a perfect Easter break. Would love to come again another time in the future.

Gorgeous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in Villa Maria will go in our memory bank as one of our favourites and that is in the main because of the gorgeous villa, pool and gardens which look exactly as the photos if not better.

My daughter woke up the first morning, looked out and said I think I've woken up in paradise! Our children had hours of fun in the lovely pool.

The villa itself was so clean and well equipped that I can't think of anything extra that we could have wanted.

Thank you to the lovely Clare and Tom for a fabulous family holiday!

And hopefully see you again next year.
