Villa Location
Located in the middle of olive and orange groves with the river meandering close by, this villa is the perfect relaxing retreat. If you can tear yourself away from the villa, Kalyves Beach is 15 minutes' drive away, plus you'll have a mini market, supermarket and restaurants less than 10 minutes away. The Venetian Harbour in Chania is well worth the 45 minutes' drive for a day out, and the quay is filled with cafes, restaurants, bars and bakeries to sample.

Location features

Local market and shopping

Neo Chorio village has shops such as a mini-market, bakery and pharmacy. A little further afield in Kalyves there's a large selection of shops including, greengrocers, butchers and a local supermarket offering a full range of everyday items. The largest farmer's market takes place in Chania on Saturday morning, selling a wonderful selection of local produce - honey, olives, and cheese to name a few.

Bars and restaurants

Neo Chorio square offers traditional kafenions (cafes) that serve the famous Greek coffee, as well as beer, local wine and soft drinks. There are a few tavernas serving authentic Cretan dishes to suit all pockets. The village of Armeni is famous for its tavernas set by the river. In Kalvyes you can find a much larger selection of bars, tavernas and restaurants, many by the beach with lovely sea views.


The nearest beaches, ranging from sandy to pebbly, are in the resorts of Kalyves and Almyrida, both less than 20 minutes' drive from the villa. If you're looking to venture further afield, the popular beaches of Falasarna and Elafonissi are worth the trip to experience stunning scenery, crystal clear turquoise waters and fine sandy beaches. What's more, the South Coast offers some lovely beaches only accessible by water taxis from Hora Sfakion.

Family fun

A trip to the waterpark is normally on everyone's list! Limnoupolis is set just 20 minutes inland from Chani. It's a great place to splash away an afternoon, racing down the Black Hole or floating around the Lazy River in a beautiful setting. Next door is Pistapark, one of the best Go-Kart tracks in the area and great fun for all the family! Gallop along the seashore with Zoraidas Riding School or explore the beauty of Lake Kournas, just 40 minutes' drive away.

Place of interest

The Ancient Roman City of Aptera is just 15 minutes' drive away, an archaeological site that is still being excavated. Explore the Roman Water Cisterns and Amphitheatre with amazing far reaching views across Souda Bay. Whilst exploring the Venetian harbour in Chania, visit the Archaeological Museum located in the old town, housing the finds from Aptera. These exhibits scan Cretan history as far back as the Neolithic period.

Samaria Gorge is a hikers' delight, but not for the faint hearted as it stretches down to the South Coast for about 10 miles along a dry-stone river bed. For a more serene experience, Rethymnon Old Town offers charming winding alleyways, and you can even stumble across Turkish houses and fountains.


The only golf club in Crete is situated towards the east of the Island in Hersonissos, about 2 and half hours' drive away.

Other places of interest

The Botanical Park is worth a visit, and something that can be combined when visiting the water park as they are close to each other.

The villa was exactly as it appears online. It looked superb, and it was. Beautiful surroundings and the villa was sparkling and well-maintained.

Iain Ashton, 16-Aug-2018

The Villa was immaculate, finished to a very high standard, and everyone was very kind and helpful- the cleaner baked us a cake and the owner Nikos popped up to show us how to use the pizza oven in the outdoor kitchen! It is situated in a very quiet and peaceful area and there was air conditioning in every room which made for a good night’s sleep! A hire car is definitely required as the villa is over a 1km walk from the village down winding tracks, but other places are easily accessible once you have transport. The villa is furnished beautifully, and we loved the outdoor kitchen with the BBQ and pizza oven.! would definitely recommend it to anyone who fancies a quiet and relaxing family break in a fantastic villa within a beautiful location!.
