Villa 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.
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 have three dogs and cats which are allowed in the grounds but not in the houses

Lavender Villa consists of two bedrooms Kitchen/ dinner, bathroom, and a large covered decking overlooking the pool
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.

Thank you for your review. We realise that our advertised photo is out of date, which is why since July we have had the drone video of the villa and gardens to ensure an authentic representation of the villas and grounds. Our natural environment, which includes pets, is part of our unique green experience. The electricity supply does come under...

The owner was very friendly and communicative - he was on site to answer all our questions. The property itself was clean and contained all that was necessary for a pleasant and peaceful holiday.

Very nice villa, with large swimming pool. The house we had, the closest to the swimming pool (what isn't a problem in termes of noise/intimacy), is clean and well équiped (except a micro wave everything is provided). Many beaches around (5 to 15 minutes by car) were you CAN park very easily. Ian was very kind and helpfull, don't Forget to ask him...

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.
