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!

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.

Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I spent 10 days in Villa Maria in July 14 and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The setting is lovely, with 3 villas facing a shared pool and 2 barbeque areas set amongst delightful landscaped gardens. The villa was fresh, modern and extremely well stocked with condiments, as well as staples such as bread, milk and cereal, so that our first day's breakfast was waiting for us when we arrived. But our strongest recommendation is for the hosts, Tom and Claire, who were extremely warm, friendly and welcoming. Tom met us at the airport at 10 p.m. having previously arranged car hire for us. The next morning he took us for a 1-hour drive around the area to help us get our bearings and to point out some good beaches, restaurants and amenities. Tom and Claire obviously put a lot of effort into ensuring that their guests have an enjoyable holiday, and this was very much appreciated.

Superb accommodation in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I was wary booking independently but was delighted to meet Tom at the airport waiting for us. Everything they say on the web site is exactly what you find. Immaculately presented accommodation set in beautifully kept gardens. Tom and Claire are always on hand with helpful advice. They take such pride in their property and can't do enough for you. I was concerned as I have dietary requirements being gluten and dairy intolerant, Claire bought me gluten free bread and was able to direct me to the nearest supermarket where I was able to get everything I needed. The villa was absolutely immaculate and well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Claire really does think of everything! The pool is lovely and clean and the perfect size. Fantastic value for a wonderful holiday set in a lovely village, close to all amenities. We'll be booking again for next year!

Another perfect holiday at the Olive Grove Villas!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at the Olive Grove Villas. We were 2 adults and 3 children aged 6,8 and 9.

Tom and Claire are doing a magnificent job maintaining and developing this property. The pool, garden and barbeque areas are lovely and much appreciated!

We like the local tavernas, especially The Sunset with its local dishes and Ramblers with their great meat.

Beaches in the area are perfect when travelling with small children, and especially Stavros and Tersanas are recommended.

New of this year is the wifi in each villa, something that gives us the opportunity to stay online when needed.

A special thanks to Tom and Claire for their great hospitality - they must be the best hosts ever :)

See you next year!!

Owner's Response: Having such lovely families to stay makes our lives very easy and so enjoyable. WiFi has proved to be a very popular addition - today one of our guests is taking part in an important on-line conference at his workplace. Not sure if that's such a good thing? We love to see our friends and guests return - it's just like having family to stay.
