“Great relaxing villa with fantastic pool”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The villa is located about 35 minutes far from Chania town in a rather hilly area, full of trees. The outside of the villa is beautiful. Inside the house, there are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (1 large with bathtub and shower, a second in the ground floor with a shower and the third is ensuite in the ground floor bedroom). The mattresses and the pillows are very good and offer you a relaxing sleep. If you open all the windows, there is light entering the house from everywhere but in case you feel hot, do not worry, there are ac units in every one of the 3 bedrooms, while 2 more units in the open plan area of dining and living room will cool you down.

Of course, you have the option to spend your time in the large swimming pool. We had much fun for many hours there on a daily basis during our stay. You will not feel at any circumstances that you miss the city, as you can do everything you want in the villa. It is very large, it has everything you may require and it suitable and recommended for couples, families and kids. We wish we could stay much longer if there was availability but we'll certainly check again to book this villa next year.

“Wonderful stay at Villa Oleander 2014”

We had the wonderful stay at Villa Oleander the last two weeks of June 2014, the villa is very private and in a quiet area. Everything was as described in thr brief and very well kept with all you require for a comfortable stay. The local taverners and bars are a few minuits away in the car as are the beaches.Mark and his team who look after the villa and the pool were very efficient and helpful, they provided very good information on places to visit. We will certainly be booking Villa Oleander again in the future.

“Great Villa in the hills”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Returned after a total relaxing two week holiday at Villa Oleander in Crete.

Villa just perfect, as described and very peaceful.
The Villa is only 10 minutes from the beach, but we had the added benefit of an excellent pool to keep us all cool during parts of the day when temperatures reached the high 30's.

We would definitely recommend this for couples or families alike.

Thank you to the Franklin family for sharing your Villa and being so helpful
