Set in prime position within a small development of just 10 properties, Villa Olivia is a perfect place to enjoy Western Crete and only 30 minutes drive from the beautiful town of Chania. Overlooking the lovely Souda bay, you will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding hills and olive groves. Lounging by the private pool, relaxing on the terrace or enjoying the gardens you can take in the superb views of the White Mountains as well as the sea. Situated between Kalyves and Vamos, you will be able to explore the nearby Blue Flag child friendly beaches (10 - 15 minutes drive) at Kalyves and Almyrida, mountains, villages and the delights of Chania. Eat and drink at the friendly beach side bars and restaurants in the small harbour villages of Almyrida and Kalyves. Explore picturesque walking and cycling trails both locally and in the White Mountains. Car hire is recommended in order to make the most of this wonderful region.

Villa Olivia is set in the most tranquil of surroundings. The soft mountain breezes, the sounds of the birds, the occasional sound of the bells on the sheep that wander the hillside all lead to a relaxed ambience. Spectacular views from the terraces are to be enjoyed all day. Welcoming beaches, restaurants and tavernas just a short car journey away all add to the whole experience. Only 35 minutes in the car takes you to the beautiful Venetian town of Chania. Time spent exploring the old town and harbour is thoroughly recommended.

A great villa with beautiful views

By Anna Lowe on 02-Aug-2022

Our stay in Villa Olivia was fantastic. Externally, the gardens and grounds are lovely with a gated driveway, lovely flowers, vines and fruit trees. The pool is large and has a great sun lounging area and BBQ. We spent many an evening relaxing on the cool veranda which has stunning views and can be used for dining and a lounge area. Internally, the villa is immaculate and very well appointed with air con, dishwasher, and shutters. The location is very handy for Almyrida, Kalyves and Gavalohori so within a close range are wide choice of restaurants and cafes. We enjoyed watching all the ships coming in and out of Souda Bay with a cold glass of wine in hand and some local olives. Heaven!

We enjoyed a fabulous week at Villa Olivia . From start to finish it was ‘Simply Superb’ Was easy to book and Joy and Jim were most helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The villa was beautiful, amazing location with spectacular views, spotlessly clean and furnished with everything we could possibly need and more. Perfect place for a quiet getaway and a family holiday.
