“Great family holiday in the perfect location.”
Reviewed September 23, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Thank you Tom and Claire for a perfect holiday. We were a mixed family bunch who rented all three villas. Four small boys and a disabled grandad. Worked perfectly for all of us. We were able to walk into the village for meals and the supermarkets for all of our daily needs. Car hire with the local car hire company was great and hassle free. Local beaches perfect for the little ones. Very well equipped accommodation. In a word perfect.

“Perfect place to stay on the peninsular”
Reviewed August 26, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Villa Irini has a great location in the village of Chorafakia. It is located within walking distance of a couple of restaurants and a café/bar. There are lots of beautiful beaches around the peninsular from 5 mins to 30 mins drive. The villa itself is set within beautiful and well maintained gardens and has everything you need which makes it a very relaxing place to stay. Tom and Claire (the owners) make your stay even more relaxing by helping with everything, advising where to go/eat and even giving a tour of the main attractions etc. around the area. The pool and surrounding area are perfect and a great size for sharing with the other two villas. Chania town is a really pretty city within 20 mins drive and definitely worth visiting. The airport is only 10 mins drive away but the flights don't interrupt relaxing by the pool. We will definitely be returning to the villas next year! Thank you to Tom and Claire for everything.

“Home from Home and then some . . . Plus pool !”

Where to start . . .

1) Location - the local village within 10 minutes walk (Chorafakia) with 2 or 3 nice restaurants and two mini markets for all your self catering set up needs. There are several beaches within a ten minute drive - we loved the shallow shelved Kalathas beach with its own island you can wade / swim out to. There are a lot more dining options in nearby Stavros or larger Kounoupidina, the latter of which also has much larger shops and several cafés. Chania itself of course is about 15 minutes drive away or a bit more if linking into the regular bus service, with countless things to see and do.

2) The Property - there are three villa bungalows, two of which front the pool directly and the other a section of the immaculately maintained garden (the tortoise family caused much deight to young son !) the spacious pool also is spotless and very well equipped with sunloungers, BBQ area inc. outside eating options etc. Caleb basically learned to swim over the ten day stay, so this pool will always hold fond memories hence forth for us all.

Internally the two houses we were allocated both are exceptionally well equipped when compared to other places we have stayed in previously and really we could not think of anything else we would have needed, with at least three options of coffee making available for example - gotta love a Greek coffee pot ! The welcome pack for first breakfast was a nice touch and much appreciated - ample towels and beach towels all provided with spacious and very clean accommodation throughout. Bin bags, washing machine and dishwasher again with starter supplies all very useful and even games, books and dvds to chose from ! Very sound beds that were much to our liking.

3) The Owners - Tom and Claire were the perfect hosts willing to give as much or as little help as desired. As we had been to this part of Crete last year I don't think we gave them too much hassle hopefully ! With their long experience of the island they obviously know where to go for the best eateries, shops and day trips etc. Also their recommendation of the local car hire firm worked out for a very fair price for our stay compared to other branded options - and was very quickly sorted out to tie in seamlessly with out airport arrival and then kindly guided round to the property by Tom.
Thank you both so much for sorting this element of our trip to make for a perfect Easter break. Would love to come again another time in the future. Easter is lovely in Crete by the way (snow up the mountains etc) although I think we may have been really fortunate with the weather as it was in all regards better than the best of Irish summers every day - 20oC plus !

“My Feedback on Villa Irini at Olive Grove Villas”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

We had a lovely stay at this very peaceful, beautiful and well furnished Villa. It has a lovely swimming pool. There are 3 villas well spaced out from each other and shrubs and plants to make the area more homely and individual. Everything is very clean and the gardens are also well maintained. The hosts are so helpful and they provide tons on information on the area and where to eat, visit, etc. Our host also took us around the area of Chorofakia to see the different beaches and restaurants. Many to choose from! If you fly into Chania airport you are only about 15 minutes drive to the Villa. You can also walk into Chorofakia from the Villa in 15 minutes if you want to have a few drinks with your meal at one of the restaurants. I cannot fault this Villa, location and and its surroundings. You will not be disappointed!
