Villa Location
Villa Olive Grove is located between the beaches of Marathi and Loutraki, both about 5 minutes' drive away by car. Marathi also has a selection of traditional tavernas serving local dishes in relaxed surroundings. The main town of Chania, with all its historical charm, is approximately 35 minutes' drive away and is definitely worth a visit, also the harbour where you relax in one of the many bars and watch the world go by - perfect!

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The indoor market in Chania is an Aladdin's cave 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. The old town of Chania has lots of narrow alleys to explore and all sorts of, boutique and chic shops in the narrow-cobbled streets.

Bars and restaurants

Chania Old Town Harbour has many waterside restaurants and bars where you can relax and watch the world go by. You can find charming local tavernas serving delicious Greek salad and meat dishes as well as international cuisine. Enjoy your dinner at this picturesque setting!


Both Marathi and Loutraki beaches are within a 5 minute drive from Villa Olive Grove. Marathi Beach has a selection of traditional tavernas, perfect for beach lovers, and both beaches are popular with local residents and visitors alike. Here you can hire sunbeds and parasols. Akrotiri Peninsular has some of the best beaches in the Chania area. One of those beaches is Kalathas Beach which is just a 30-minute car ride away from Villa Olive Grove. Here the sandy beach has sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, plus a taverna which serves local dishes. Alternatively, if you can tear yourself away from the villa for the day, then why not go to Elafonissi Beach with turquoise water and pink corals.

Family fun

For the energetic visitors, the Limnoupolis waterpark is around a 40-minute drive away offering the thrilling black hole slide and the more sedate lazy river. Mega Drive go kart track can also be found on the outskirts of Chania where all ages can be catered for. You can also visit the Botanical Park on the road to Omalos which is a tranquil haven where plants and shrubs from around the world as well as indigenous varieties flourish.

Places of interest

The Samaria Gorge, the longest in Europe, entices many to visit the area. Come prepared with boots and rucksack to walk the entire length. For those less energetic, take a boat from the south coast and then walk as far as you want before returning to the taverna for lunch and sailing back.


The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos.

Activities and things to do
The Crete Golf Club
As Crete is a very mountainous island, there is just one 18 hole golf course in Hersonissos on the east of the island. It has a desert style layout and is very well maintained. It would take about an hour and a half to get to the golf course and all equipment can be hired on site.
Mega Place
This is a great complex in Chania where children can let their hair down with a variety of play areas all under one roof.
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.
Go Kart Tracks
There are several go kart tracks suitable for children in the resorts of Chania and Rethymnon. They are smaller tracks and smaller karts geared especially for budding Formula 1 drivers!
This very popular sport can be found on the beach in Almyrida as well as some beaches west of Chania in and around the resort of Platanias. Boards of varying sizes with sails to suit varying weather conditions can be hired. Lifejackets are also provided.

Kristos and his wife were incredibly friendly and hospitable throughout our stay. It was clearly very important to them that all aspects of our holiday were the best possible, offering every assistance on their visits. They provided helpful suggestions for activities and even organised transport to the airport. The villa was beautiful, clean and had all the amenities for a wonderful stay. Overall we were very pleased with our holiday and choice of villa, rounded off with the extra personal touch provided by the owners.
