Chania, Crete, Greece
Additional Location Information
-The Crete region:
Crete is the largest island in Greece. The island offers amazing variety, combining snow-capped mountains, rolling hills covered with olive trees and over 1000 km of varied coastline. Crete has far more endemic plants than any other island in Europe.
Chania has a great history and cultural heritage, partly because it faced many conquerors through time, thus being open to the influences of different civilizations. Chania has many monuments of Byzantine period, Venetian period, Ottoman period and modern History as well as worth-seeing museums, like the Nautical Museum of Crete, the Archaeological Museum of Chania, the house of El. Venizelos, the War Museum of Chania.
The climate of the area is temperate Mediterranean and the temperatures vary at normal levels all year round.
-The Kolymbari area:
Kolymbari, a quiet village nestling between the Mediterranean sea and majestic green cliffs, 23 km west of Chania, is still relatively unaffected by tourism. Kolymbari is known for its nice sandy beach, a small fishing port, cozy tavernas and cafés as well as several restaurants and a few shops.
The Olive Villas complex is situated at the village of Kria Vrissi, 30km south-west of the city of Chania and 10km from the beach of Kolymbari. Its traditional stone architecture blends seamlessly with the surrounding fields of vines, olive and orange trees and the marvellous view of the area mountains. It stands on the site of an old olive press which belonged to the owners' family since the beginning of the 20th century. The more modern olive mill, which remained functional until the 70's, still stands next to the house and the Olive Estate still produces excellent quality extra virgin olive oil.
The house was fully renovated in 2011. Due to its position, it’s ideal for hiking excursions in the surrounding countryside, observing the local village life, or just relaxing while enjoying the sweeping panoramic views. The owners’ links with various cultural organisations in the region make it the perfect starting point for anyone interested in the history of the region, the history of olive cultivation or discovering traditional oil production methods.
