Nestling in the sleepy, unspoilt village of Maleme, with a backdrop of the White Mountains and a beautiful adjoining orange grove, Maleme Villa offers a luxury, tranquil Cretan village holiday. Only a five minute stroll through the rustic village lanes to the beach, taverns and shops, yet sufficiently far enough from the main resort area to ensure a peaceful, relaxing setting, our traditionally built villa has been lovingly and tastefully restored to maintain its original charm and character whilst importantly incorporating all the facilities you would expect for modern day living and more.
Next to a lovely orange grove, to the side of the property, in the pretty walled-garden, is the swimming pool and jacuzzi. Enjoy pool-side lounging on the wooden deck which has a range of comfortable furniture. Take a break for drinks and snacks in the impressive pool-house, which has a kitchen and a sleeping area; or enjoy an outdoor meal from the gas barbecue. To truly pamper yourself go below the pool-house and really relax in your very own luxury steam room. Shower and toilet facilities are also located here.
The layout of the villa is a little complicated, as before the restoration a part of the building was a house while the other part was a stable. Now at the ground floor there are two fully equipped kitchens, a spacious lounge with vaulted ceiling and a formal dining area that can comfortably seat six people. Stairs from the lounge lead to a romantic double bedroom on a stunning mezzanine floor. Beyond the dining area is a small, beautiful bay-windowed conservatory in which you can relax, read or just take a nap. At the same floor there are two bathrooms and a twin bedroom with French door leading to a back yard. On the first floor there are a bathroom and a double bedroom with a private balcony. To the side of the property, in the pretty walled-garden, is the swimming pool and jacuzzi. Enjoy pool-side lounging on the wooden deck, take a break for drinks and snacks in the impressive pool-house, enjoy an outdoor meal from the gas barbecue and relax in the steam room.

16 km west of Chania, in this very fertile corner of Crete, Maleme was famously the setting for the epic Battle of Crete in the last world war. Today the countryside is dominated by sweet smelling orange groves and whispering plantations of tall bamboo which fringe the mile upon mile of almost deserted beaches, punctuated by the occasional cosmopolitan hotel. Maleme has a good choice of tavernas, and a fairly large supermarket and although the village has undoubtedly grown in recent years, it still retains a pleasingly unsophisticated air and if you explore a little, you'll soon find the local baker and a real Greek butcher's shop. For a little more action the bustling village of Platanias is just under 4km away but if you prefer a slower pace of life and a rather more tranquil atmosphere, there are several sleepy villages located just inland.
