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 so much for having us, again. It was a wonderful holiday with much needed special time with George and Ed away from the rat race! We couldn't ask for anything more. You are so kind and attentive to every last detail which makes everyone's stay so relaxed and memorable: it is hard to think of ever going anywhere else. Despite the sunshine here, jumping in the pond isn't quite the same as your lovely pool. See you next year."

BRILLIANT holiday - we couldn't recommend more.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Eleni in July 09 - we are a family of 5 with our 3 boys being between 1 and 6..

Tom and Claire were very helpful indeed and provided a cot, highchair and stairgate (the gate is off the terrace so our 1 yr old was able to get everywhere but the pool area). The kitchens are very well supplied including a dishwasher and washing machine.

Th pool is fantastic - it has a small area that is 1m deep that is perfect for small children and the rest is between 1.5 and 1.7m deep. Lilos are provided (thanks!) and there are many sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool. There are only 3 villas to share the pool so it is never very crowded.

The area is full of smal,l pretty beaches and has a number of beach bars and tavernas to eat/drink in.

I cannot recommend this property enough - we have already booked to go back next year.

Perfect relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Eleni for 9 nights with our two young children and had a fantastic holiday. The villas are so well equipped, everything you could need is provided including beach gear (which saves you packing!), books and DVDs. Tom and Claire are extremely welcoming and helpful, organising our hire car, meeting us at the airport, taking us for a drive around the local area (which was really useful) and accommodating us for an extra night when our flight was cancelled! They even provided a welcome hamper of food including the ingredients for a Greek salad - yum! The pool is beautiful, a great size and very well maintained. The villa itself was immaculate and homely and the gardens pretty. Location wise it's a short drive to the nearest village, and half a dozen superb beaches are all within a 5-20 minute drive as are a host of great restaurants (we especially loved the little French Arabic place on Stavros beach). In one word, perfect! We wouldn't hesitate to go back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Eleni during September 2016. One of three villas occupying a plot of land set amid lovely well maintained gardens in tranquil surroundings close to Chania town and the airport. The property is clean, the kitchen is well appointed, beds are really comfortable and there is plenty of hot water. We were made to feel welcome by the friendly hosts, Tom & Claire who are always on hand to help with any questions. Overall, we would highly recommend this accommodation to renters looking for relaxing holiday under the Cretan sunshine.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family holiday at Villa Eleni. The villa was immaculately clean and well equipped, set in beautiful gardens with pool which we could not keep the boys (aged 10 and 6) out of . Tom met us at the airport to guide us to the villa and returned the next day to give us a tour of the local area which was much appreciated.

We enjoyed meals at Irenes,Ramblers, Sunset Taverna, Sunset Café and Boys all of who provided large portions for very reasonable prices. We visited Rethymno and Chania , and can recommend a trip to the Botanical gardens of Crete for a lovely shaded walk , complete with meal on the terrace afterwards from produce picked in the gardens.

Tom and Claire have created a real jewel and we are already talking about a return trip.

We had a wonderful holiday at these villasfeeling at home as soon as we arrived We stayed in Villa Elini travelling with friends who stayed in the next villa. Everything that you might need for a comfortable holiday had been thought about by Tom and Claire. The villas were spotlessly clean set around the pool and very pleasant gardens. Tom and Claire are on hand and very helpful if you have any problems. There are a few lovely beaches close by and plenty of reasonably priced restaurants serving good food. You do need a car as the beaches are not in walking distance. We had a wonderful holiday and hope to be going back again next year, so what better recommendation than that. Thank you Tom and Claire
