About the property

Villa Tzivaeri & Marathoula

Both villas are located in the area of Akrotiri, a large peninsula in Chania, Crete.

Villa Tzivaeri is an old stone Venetian style mansion, with a huge private court yard, partly paved with stone, located in the village of Sternes, 2km from the sandy beach of Marathi and 5 km from the airport.

Villa Marathoula is placed on the sandy beach of Marathi, next to our own small café that we run all season. Only a few steps away from the water!

very very nice

  • 5 of 5

The house is an extremely nice villa within a Greek village. The amazing thing is that we could enjoy the fact that we were within a peaceful and picturesque village with no tourist (I think we were the only ones there as far as we could see) while also being only 3 minutes drive away from the beaches. It's also 30 minutes away from the old port of Chania where the crowds are much more important; but it's very well preserved and has many restaurants.

The house itself is extremely comfortable and spacious. The most amazing feature is the garden. The house is within a "Venetian" style garden with both places to relax and fruit trees. We ended up pressing our own orange juice from the garden trees. There was more than enough for our all stay. The house has everything we needed: we ended up cooking a few times even though the local food is both amazing and very affordable.

Our host was more than helpful and introduced us to people in the village. They also have a restaurant on the beach that has one of the best food we had in Greece (and we had a lot of good food in Greece)! We felt very warmly welcome. Thanks!

We highly recommend the place.

A Cretan dream home and more...

  • 5 of 5

Upon walking through the magnificent wooden courtyard gate we felt the atmosphere of Crete. The large courtyard has beautiful stonework with fine craftsmanship and plenty of cozy comfortable areas to share with family. We especially enjoyed the abundance of citrus fruits that hung on the many fruit trees. The house Is beautifully constructed and includes all the modern conveniences we wanted. The furnishings and linens were high quality and new. Best of all there are beautiful beaches minutes away. The small town was very traditional, with winding street and small markets, shop and cafes. Our hosts were very friend and accommodating . Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and making it a wonderful holiday for my family.

Did not get there

Owing to the Greek air traffic control strike we were forced to cancel our holiday. We would like to thank the owners for the generous refund they gave us.

Very nice facility at all.

  • 5 of 5

It’s not easy to find any negative side of Villa Tzivaeri. Firstly the house is very clean and comfortable for two families. There is everything what you need inside even the washing machine and Co. The fixture of the kitchen is also good especially if you need to upgrade your breakfast with fresh orange juice, you need only to take available machine and spend 2min. to harvest fruits in your own garden of orange trees… delicious. The real highlight is the outdoor space a perfect place for kids and parents with enough place to enjoy the evening. The last but not least very nice and helpful host! Jorgos, Dimitri and Maria (Tasoulas parents) just natural and always ready to support you, to make your holiday more comfortable. I can strongly recommend Villa Tzivaeri.

Sternes is a charming, traditional village situated on the Akrotiri peninsula of Chania, with outstanding views towards the Bay of Souda and White Mountains of Crete. Although a peaceful and exclusive area, it is easily accessible being only 10 kilometers from the historic City of Chania, 5km from the international airport and 12km from the port of Souda. The area is an ideal place to relax and unwind, and has caffes, mini markets and tavernas nearby.

Loutraki, just 2.5km away from the villa, is a small sandy beach with emerald color and wave-less sea, is popular for the Loutraki Beach bar, offering sunbeds and parasols on a long grass area just above the sea, on the side of the beach.

Marathi, a wonderful sandy beach and seaside small village where seafood is unbeatable, next to Loutraki also 2.5km from the villa.
