Villa Location
Villa Margarita Exi stands on a hill just outside the seaside village of Kalyves, which has many traditional tavernas, bars, a variety of shops and some lovely sandy beaches. Unlike most of the island, this area is very flat making it ideal to explore on foot. Chania is 20 minutes away by car and is a contrast of old and new, whilst the traditional villages of the White Mountains are on the villas' doorstep.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The village of Kalyves has a couple of pharmacies, a bakery, banks, a greengrocer, as well as other shops. A little further afield is the indoor market in Chania, which is an Aladdin's cave for those who like to try local cheeses and olives. The market on Saturday, also in Chania, is the place to head to for the freshest local fruit and vegetables.

Bars and restaurants

There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from in Kalyves, dotted around the village and along the seafront, all offering warm, Cretan hospitality. The beachside restaurants overlook Kalyves Beach and serve anything from fresh fish and slow cooked lamb to a healthy Greek salad. The traditional resort of Chania has many waterfront restaurants and bars along the harbour. For a taste of the authentic Crete, it's worth experiencing the taveranas hidden within Chania Old Town.


Kalyves Beach has golden sands and clear waters that slope gently, making it ideal for families . For a more relaxed swim there's a smaller beach in the village of Kalyves, the other side of the river Xydas. The neighbouring village of Almyrida is full of beauty and is only 5 minutes' drive from the villa.

For a day trip to the beach, why not try the fabulous beaches of Falasarna and Balos, in the West of Crete? They have crystal clear waters, as well as a few tavernas selling fresh fish and local dishes.

Family fun

The neighbouring village of Almyrida has a beautiful beach offering water sports such as snorkelling. Close to Chania is the Golden Fun Park with play activities and 10 pin bowling.

The waterpark of Limnoupolis is great for all the family to enjoy and is only a short drive away. Mega Go Karting is on the outskirts of Chania and open 11 hours a day with a children's playground too!

Activities and things to do
Waterpark - Limnoupolis
This great water park is set in a fabulous countryside setting away from the busy resorts of Chania. It’s 8 kilometres from the town of Chania and has a variety of rides from Kamikazi to the Lazy River.
Horse Riding
Horse riding is available Georgioupolis a seaside village resort between Chania and Rethymnon. They offer several different programmes according to ability as well as guided nature walks around the lake of Kournas. This is a very rural area and the White Mountains form a stunning background especially in the spring and early summer when the mountain peaks are snow drenched.
General Watersports
Nearly all resorts with organised beaches offer water sports of some description depending on the local conditions. They may vary from paragliding, waterskiing, kyaking, banana boats and jet skiing.
Chania Resort
The heart of Chania is still the old town, and the hotchpotch of buildings from different eras illustrates the towns complex and turbulent history. The Venetian element is everywhere, from the harbour itself to the Firkas Fortress on the waterfront, which is now a maritime museum. The little streets that zig-zag the old town are full of elegant Venetian buildings, and you can still see the remains of the Venetian walls that once encircled Chania. By way of contrast there is also an ancient Turkish mosque on the waterfront, with Kastelli Hill rising behind it. The mosque is a great landmark, but is no longer used as a religious building, but as an exhibition space. The buildings of the old town are very much alive, and are now shops, restaurants, hotels, artisan workshops and private houses. The new town has grown up all around the old, but the two areas peacefully co-exist. The sandy beach is just a 5 minute walk from the harbour, so the town is very compact and manageable for the visitor.
War Cemetery Souda Bay
This pristine cemetery is a memorial to British, Australian and New Zealand soldiers and sailors who died during the battles. There are 1,527 graves each marked with a white headstone although sadly many do not have names. This tranquil spot draws many visitors annually who have made long journeys to pay their respects to a family member.
