Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Villa K is located within a picturesque, traditional Greek village with tavernas, shops and bars yet is only five minutes’ drive from the beautiful family-friendly beaches of the up-market resort of Kalives with a great choice of amenities and restaurants.
The villa benefits from its own private pool (complete with sun loungers and umbrella), with a shallow end perfect for children and non-slip terrace around the pool. There are several large, furnished outside terraces including a raised, shaded seating and BBQ area to one end of the pool from where you can keep an eye on the kids in the pool whilst enjoying lunch. On the first floor is a very large furnished terrace with shade from where you can enjoy the views and a pre-dinner drink and the most amazing views across the olive groves to the coast at Kalives and the Akrotiri peninsula.
With two doubles (including one downstairs), one twin bedroom and two comfortable double sofa beds in the lounge, the villa is ideal for families with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay.

The Crete region
Crete is an island with an exquisite 1,000 kilometre-long coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. Crete is known as home of the Minoan civilization with important archaeological finds.
Crete is the largest island in Greece - the fifth largest in the Mediterranean - with more than 8,000 square
kilometres, there is plenty to discover.
The weather in Crete is characterised by mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers. The climate of Crete is a temperate Mediterranean climate and is suitable for year round holidays. Why not take advantage of the lovely weather in April/May and September/October when it's nice and quiet?
Kalives lies about 20 km east of Chania in the Apokoronas area and is on the coast at the entrance of Souda Bay. The town is bound on one side by the sea and the other by low hills.
A long sandy beach runs alongside most of the town, interrupted by a small stream popular with ducks. The beach is popular with families and there are many tavernas and restaurants in the village. However, Kalives is a working - not just a tourist - village, so there is a good selection of shops: bakeries, butchers, ironmongers and so on - even a cooper (barrel maker). Kalives has churches, a post office and squares. The centre is dominated by a fine church with a square in front. Kalives is a popular tourist destination, yet has retained its character.
Five minutes drive to the two fabulous beaches at Kalives. Numerous other beaches close by. The beach in Kalives centre is particularly family friendly, being a sheltered bay with gently sloping sand into the sea. Plenty of amenities here with numerous tavernas/shops. The beach just outside of Kalives is larger and more open and has a couple of tavernas.
Things to see and do include some of the following (we provide a detailed information pack in the villa);
Horse rising, cycling tours, walking in the White Mountains and scuba diving can all be enjoyed locally. There are also come fabulous places to visit including ancient sites, local beauty spots such as Lake Kournas and for those who want to venture a little further afield, the Samaria Gorge or a day trip to Santorini.
We can recommend a good local tour operator who can organise a variety of activities and trips at reasonable rates.
There is a water park for younger guests about 40 minutes' drive from the villa.
