Villa Location
Rumoured to be one of the best beaches on the western coast of the island, Marathi's sandy bay is only a couple of minutes walk from Villa Olive Grove. There is a selection of excellent tavernas within a short walk, and the nearest mini market or supermarket is easily accessible by car. The next bay along, at Loutraki, has a smaller cove with a snack bar serving up snacks and soft drinks. Chania is around 10 miles away and its' maze of streets lined with shops and eateries is well worth a visit!

Location features

Marathi overlooks the mouth of Souda Bay so cruise ships, ferrys, excursion pirate boats and local fishermen all sail by at some point throughout the day. Other than the beaches of Marathi and Loutraki, Stavros, Tersanas and Kalathas all boast lovely beaches. At the weekends the beaches are popular with local people to enjoy time with friends and family.

The atmospheric and historical city of Chania is within easy reach by car and its' worth taking time to explore the winding alleys with the Venetian and Turkish architecture, small eclectic shops and traditional tavernas. You can also visit the Nautical Museum which displays a reconstruction of a Minoan ship.

A short drive away is a trio of monasteries, including Agia Triada & the deserted Katholiki Monastery set in the Avlaki gorge. The third monastery is Gouverneto Monastery which dates back to the mid 16th century and is now undergoing restoration work by the monks who live there now. Boat trips are also available from Souda Bay but more trips are offered from the Ventian Harbour in the old town of Chania and in the village of Almyrida where a small inflatable takes visitors in to nearby caves to see the stalactites and stalagmites before going swimming in a small cove.

For those looking for a challenge, the Samaria Gorge can be explored through organised excursions bookable through local agencies. Just remember to bring walking boots and suitable clothing! It's 18 kilometres and not for the novice but has spectacular scenery and well worth the effort.

The waterpark of Limnoupolis provides a fun day out for all the family whilst the Botanical Park is a testament to the determination of 4 brothers who created the park after fires destroyed their olive groves. The micro climate allows many varieties of plants and trees from around the world to thrive and the restaurant there serves Cretan cuisine in a varied menu.

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.
