House overview

We have three villas set in 5000sq meters of gardens with a large 24/7 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. There is a gas barbecue with side hob for out side cooking
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 Lidl 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.

We enjoyed an amazing 7 nights at Jasmine Villa, part of the Crete Retreat villa complex. What a fantastic green oasis Ian created in the arid Crete. Amazing big swimming pool and all amenities to have a perfect family vacation. Rob, who's managing the property, goes above and beyond to help you with everything you need for a comfortable stay....

Wonderful setting for Jasmine Cottage - well maintained lovely gardens. Good size pool. Accommodation basic but sufficient for our needs. Good communication with owner. Location a bit out of tourist areas and difficult to find initially but Chania, Historical areas, walks and lovely beaches easily accessible. Car a necessity

Family from Charenton-le-pont, France · July 2016
The villa is surrounded by a very nice and well kept garden. The large pool is surrounded by grass which Ian (the owner) in good English takes great care with his wife and it is very pleasant to sit and cool off in the shade of trees. Ian is always available to help without disturbing. The house equipment is a little too short and when we passed...

Twenty 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. 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 accommodation 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.
