Villa Location
You can experience the best of both worlds when staying at Villa Elea. This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa is set in the beautiful countryside and yet the resort centre of Maleme is only a 10 minute drive. Here you will find a beach and places to eat, drink and shop. If you wanting a bit of historical culture then the charming old town and harbour at Chania is a must see, with its array of restaurants, shops and bars - well worth a visit!

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The resort of Maleme is just a 10 minute drive away and has a supermarket, butcher and pharmacy. The indoor market is an Aladdin's cave in Chania which is great for those who like to try local cheeses and olives. This is also a good place to buy fresh fish to take back for the BBQ.

Bars and restaurants

Maleme has a variety of tavernas to sample. For more variety then why not venture to the Venetian Harbour in Chania where there is a great choice of tavernas and bars to suit everyone's palate.


Maleme Beach is a short driving distance from Villa Elea. This is a shingle/pebble beach that has sun beds and parasols.

Family fun

The beaches on the outskirts of Maleme are frequented by loggerhead turtles from June to August. The nests are covered with baskets to alert visitors to their presence and not to disturb them.

Places of interest

Continue driving West and you will arrive at the small town of Kastelli. Here you can take a boat trip to Balos and Gramvousa where the sea is crystal clear and the beaches are breath-taking. The town of Chania is within a 20 minute drive and should not to be missed. The Venetian Harbour is fringed with tavernas, cafes and shops. There are buildings in the narrow streets where Venetian and Turkish architectural features can still be seen.

Other places of interest and activities

Maleme was where the Battle of Crete took place in the Second World War and the German War Cemetery is a short distance away.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

A lovely villa with all home comforts and amazing views.

Madelene Erskine, 22-Jul-2018

Best villa we've stayed in so far. Fabulous pool, high standard villa, beautiful gardens, private and secluded location, yet only 10min drive from Platanias for entertainment and water sports. The owners have worked hard to make this villa a place to relax. Many thanks for the best holiday yet.

Philip Fairlie, 09-Jul-2017

We had 7 days of bliss at the villa. It was a fantastic spot with incredible views all around it. The interior was spotless and very well equipped with any and all the things you would need. The pool was magnificent and again, spotlessly clean. Katarina is the owner, and she arrived midweek with her team to give the place another clean, fresh towels, sheets etc. She clearly takes great pride in the place and has every reason to be proud of it. Would return in a heartbeat.

This was the best villa we have stayed at having visited Greece regularly for many years, the location and presentation of the villa was excellent and it was better equipped than any other we have used. It has set a high benchmark to judge future holidays by.
