About the property

On the top of a hill, among olive groves and next to a pine forest, the classical style stone villa Hermes is built. It offers a splendid panorama of the landscape and combines the luxury with the rural way of life. The villa is located in Polemarhi, a traditional village 23 kilometers or 15 minutes drive away from the city of Chania and 3kilometers away from Tavronitis village and the beach.<br><br>

When the electric door of the garage opens, you come across an impressive picture; an imposing 370 sq.m stone built villa, surrounded by 3000 sq.m of two levels garden, overlooking the mountains, the countryside and the sea. Around the large pool (50 sq.m), which has an integral children's pool / jacuzzi, you will find sunbeds for your sunbath. In one shadowy corner of the garden there are a barbecue, a traditional stone-oven and a table with chairs, where you can enjoy your meals. From every point of the garden the view is bewitching.<br><br>

The sunlit sitting area with a fireplace in one corner, a formal dining area and the fully equipped kitchen are found there. A French door opens to a veranda with breathtaking, panoramic view of the mountains, the green countryside and the sea. At the same floor there are a wc for the guests and a bedroom with 3 single beds. This room is suitable for wheel chair users.<br><br>

From this floor you can take the elevator or climb the stairs to the upper floor. 3 bedrooms are found on this floor; two of them have double bed, while the third one has 3 single beds. On this floor there is a sunlit office area with a computer with internet access. All bedrooms have private balconies with amazing view.Stairs and the elevator lead to the lower floor too. This floor consists of one twin bedroom and a games room, where a pool table, an exercise bike, a treadmill and a ping-pong table are found.

Complete getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hermes villa will not disappoint you. Nice decor, good equipment providing everything you need in the kitchen, spacious rooms with multiple balconies to enjoy a stunning view… It stands in a quiet peaceful place, and all you need is to make sure you have enough time to listen to the birds singing, enjoy the sunset in the valley and walk around in olive and pine groves.

The villa is safe for small kids (provided you still watch them by the pool). You would for sure need a car to get to the nearest shop or taverna, as the villa stands on the top of the hill. The nearest beach (at Tavronitis) is pebbles, and you might wish to drive ab. 40 min to the one with sand.

And - many thanks to the owners, Maria and Manoles, for their help and hospitality!

A very nice villa

  • 5 of 5

We were in Hermes Villa for a week at the end of August this year.

I can recommend it for the quiet area, beautiful sightseeing, excellent conditions and intimacy and also for the very big space at your disposal. The owners were very helpful and the cleaning service excellent.

The villa is fully equiped and very comfortable.

We really enjoyed our stay there and we intend to come back in one of the future holidays.

Hermes Villa is set in delightful gardens with fabulous views and a very pleasant pool. Inside the rooms are spacious and well furnished, the kitchen has everything you need. We enjoyed barbecues and using the outside wood oven to cook pizzas.

Maria, the owner felt like an old friend after only a week. She was very helpful and we particularly enjoyed our night out with the locals at the small nearby taverna which she recommended.

We visited the bakery in Tavronitis every morning for delicious fresh bread and cakes and there are several supermarkets within an easy drive.

Chania is charming and there are many good beaches to visit. We also enjoyed the Samaria Gorge, Lake Kournas where pedalos can be hired, the Olive Tree museum and several caves. On our last day we had a late flight so visited Rethymnon, which is beautiful, then drove to Water City near Heraklion. Perfect!

We would certainly recommend this villa very highly.

Awsome stay at Villa Hermes

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe our eyes when we arrived at Villa Hermes late evening. Excellent Villa with a fantastic view of the bay - Invites to relaxation.

Everything worked very well with our reservation - car rental and on site contact to the nice and serviceminded owner.

This is definately the way we'll be enjoying our vacation in the future.

Thanks for everything.

Polemarhi is a small, unspoiled village, built among olive groves and next to a pine forest. It is close to the beach and nested at the cliffs of a hill, so it offers a magnificent view of the coastline at the north, the green countryside at the east and the mountain chain of Lefka Ori at the south. The nearest coastal village is Tavronitis, just 3 km away from Polemarhi.

Tavronitis is built at the end of Tavronitis River, surrounded by olive trees, orange trees and vineyards. It is located between Maleme and Kolibari villages, 20 km far from the city of Chania. The clean beach, bordered by trees and with several taverns by the sea is an easy short walk from the village centre.

The small village community has a bank, supermarket, bakery, grocery, coffee shops and taverns. A few more facilities are found at Kolimbari, a quiet calm village at the west, with long, open beaches excellent for swimming. At the east there is Maleme, another peaceful village with clear beaches.
