Jasmine villa, Olivetree villa and Lavender villa are set in 5500sq meters of beautiful gardens with a large pool. The ideal location makes this an ideal base for exploring the Island, with
We have three villas set in 5000sq meters of gardens with a large 165sq meter swimming pool, one you can really swim in. We are located on the edge of the village of Tsikalaria, away from the main roads, and secluded, to create a quiet but not isolated base for your holiday.We provide free internet access for you to keep in touch.
Being a reclaimed orange grove, all the water for the garden is supplied by the original well, giving an unusual green micro climate within the warmth of Crete.
We are well placed and within easy reach of Chania with the beautiful Venetian harbour, tavernas, shops, museums and ancient atmosphere.
Our local shops and tavernas provide convenient shopping and dining. Souda, the nearby town and port offers a Carrefour supermarket and the renowned fresh fish tavernas and is just 3 km away.
Our aim is to provide an affordable, quiet, green environment that is private but not totally isolated. We live within the grounds and provide on site management and help. From our own experience we have made a point of providing good sized air conditioned bedrooms, adequate cooking and barbeque equipment, large bath and shower rooms and raised sun terraces.
For those wanting to experience the historical aspect of Crete, the Aptera Roman settlement is only 15 minutes away and we are surrounded by archaeological sites, monasteries and museums.
For the more active holiday, there are daily excursions to walk the world famous Samaria Gorge, horse riding, wind surfing, climbing, walking, go carting, paragliding and diving.
Boat trips leave from Chania harbour and Souda ferry terminal daily. Excursions are also available to Knossos, Elafonisi, and Santorini.
The beaches around the area are plentiful, ranging from quiet and remote, to popular. Most beaches have tavernas on the beach or nearby, and all have easy free parking.
We offer a truly ideal location from which to explore this beautiful island and believe you will find peace and relaxation within your private villa, shady gardens and of course our beautiful swimming pool.
on site management
We are on site to help with any problems,and are able to give some local information.
The outside frame(executive) is very pleasant (location(localization) even if is needed a car, the swimming pool, the garden), even if the number of animals which walk is not there pleasant (dogs, wandering cats)
Mister Johnson is very nice, his neighbors also on the other hand,
BUT the state of dirt of the villa is catastrophic: it was necessary to paaser the broom upon our arrival, plans of work of the dirty kitchen, the refrigerator in the same state and ESPECIALLY very unpleasant smell in the house, (Urine? Excrements of animals?) impossible to get rid of it in spite of several intense washes! Very dirty sofa to such a point that we cannot sit down there; old-fashioned furniture

Our stay at Villa Jasmine was very pleasant. The rooms are like in the picture, big and bright. They are simply furnished but there is everything you need. The kitchen is reasonably equipped although some larger pot could use. In any case, Jan is always available and very kindly provided us with a large pot for cooking pasta for 5 people. There are two bathrooms and large enough. The house is well maintained and clean although in need of some accommodation. The villa is surrounded by green areas and trees, the garden is nice and lush and the pool is big and clean. Mr.Jan is very nice and despite our broken English did everything to meet our demands. The house is situated close to the city of Chania, beautiful to visit day and night with numerous restaurants at great prices. It 'also well placed to visit the beaches of the north-west. Nearby are several supermarkets. Council villa Jasmin to those looking for a simple, quiet and relaxing. Thanks
Il nostro soggiorno a villa Jasmine è stato molto piacevole. Le stanze sono come in foto, ampie e luminose. Sono arredate semplicemente ma c'è tutto quello che serve. La cucina è abbastanza attrezzata anche se qualche pentola più grande farebbe comodo. In ogni caso Jan è sempre a disposizione e molto gentilmente ci ha fornito una pentola grande per cuocere la pasta per 5 persone. I bagni sono due e abbastanza ampi. La casa è ben tenuta e pulita anche se avrebbe bisogno di qualche sistemazione. La villatta è circondata da zone verdi e alberate, il giardino è curato e rigoglioso e la piscina e grande e pulita. Mr.Jan è molto gentile e nonostante il nostro inglese stentato ha fatto di tutto per soddisfare le nostre richieste. La casa è situata vicinissima alla citta di Chania, bellissima da visitare di giorno e di sera con numerosissimi ristorantini a prezzi ottimi. E' anche nella posizione migliore per visitare le spiagge della zona nord-ovest . Vicino ci sono diversi supermercati. Consiglio villa Jasmin a chi cerca una vacanza semplice, tranquilla e di relax. Grazie Mr.Jan!

We had a marvellous holiday at Jasmine Villa during the first half of July. In fact, this wasn't a surprise because we've rented the same house the year before. We came back ... on special request of the children: a spacious swimming pool where they can play and swim, a lot of animals, a "green" garden, ... For us a little bit back to basics: rest, privacy and life in an easy tempo.
Good location to visit Chania and the western part of the Island.
We Keep the best memories on this holiday house, the friendly owners and the diving neighbours.

The owner of the property was helpful in assisting us with finding the property. When we arrived we had to clean up the property by sweeping and mopping along with cleaning the bathrooms. The location is a little confusing to get to and the GPS would take us past the entrance. There is a great supermarket nearby as long as you have a car. The pool was a great asset for cooling off during the day. Overall not a bad Vacation Rental. I would recommend that the villa be remodeled inside for a more appealing look.

About the owner
Eight years ago, we finally released our dream and myself, Ian, Jeannie my wife and our two girls set off from England for our new life on the warm and sunny island of Crete.
We had already purchased a plot of land with a house and one acre of orchard, delicious navel oranges.
In the time honored fashion of the island it took over a year to overcome the paperwork and legalities connected with our purchase but then we were able to start our huge project.
The gardens and villas slowly took shape, each year bringing exciting changes as the trees and plants matured. The result is now three villas set in beautiful gardens.
Having been to Greece on previous occasions we wanted to make the accomodation spacious. A large bathroom was a must and raised sun terraces were top priority.
We wanted to create individual privacy without being isolated and a pool that you could really swim in,
We are very fortunate that we are only a short distance from Chania, the principal town, and we also determined be affordably priced, a place for people to relax.
We aim to create integrity and customer care. We are here, on site, for the duration of your stay to make sure everything runs smoothly for you.
