Agios Anophris beach is about 1 kilometer from the villas. This pretty beach, which has been awarded a Blue Flag, faces west so gets the day's sun to the very last minute! There are two taverns here so, food and drink is close at hand to sustain you through a hard day on the beach.

Akrotiri Peninsula:
if you have a map of Crete you will find the Akrotiri Peninsula set to the north east of the city of Chania. It is almost spherical piece of land attached to the rest of Crete by a narrow "stalk". On its western coast are numerous small beaches; the most notable of which being Stavros. This very sheltered horseshoe bay is almost completely enclosed by land and the southern side of the bay is fringed with soft sand, which shelves very slowly towards the extremely calm sea, making it the perfect spot for those with small children. When I last visited, a few years ago, it was still unspoilt and quiet, although there were a few large and virtually empty taverns around; perhaps these are full in Summer so the place might be quite busy then! Akrotiri itself is hilly rather than mountainous and as far as I could discover there were few beaches on its eastern shores.

The airport for Chania is situated towards the eastern side of the peninsula but there are few planes and those that passed overhead when I visited the villas were hardly noticeable. Immediately south and between Akrotiri and the rest of the island is the very sheltered natural harbor of Souda bay. At the edge of the bay is the well-tended Allied War cemetery where row after immaculate row, stand the headstones of soldiers who fought and were killed in the Battle of Crete.
Chania, which is approx. 7 kilometers from the villas, has its origins in Venetian times and most of the old city is contained within broad, ancient walls. Within these walls, and clustering around the harbor, are well preserved Venetian Merchants houses with an Ottoman Empire Turkish mosque on the eastern side of the sheltered water. Thankfully, all old buildings are protected from destruction and most have been restored without damage to their facades. It seems that nearly every house now offers their rooms, roofless restaurants or interesting shops. The streets are narrow and mostly impassable to cars making the whole area wonderful for aimless wander! At night the place awakens and around the harbor the lights of the taverns twinkle on the still water, the calm of which belies the buzz of life all around.
The position of the villas is good for those who wish to explore Crete as the north coast road, which is not far from the Akrotiri peninsula, provides easy access toboth south, west and middle of the island.

Quiet haven on the edge of town. Has everything you need including your own private pool. Eleni (our host) greeted us warmly and made some great recommendations for beach (Marathi) and a taverna (Patra Ladonis at Marathi). Our stay was only one night and we chose Lemon Tree Villas as it was not too far from the airport-we would have liked to stay longer.

Great stay! Our host was there to welcome us, showed us the property and made sure we had everything we needed. There was a problem with the air-condition in the room and they called the techician immediately (saturday evening) and fixed it. The private pool is the highlight of the property!

We enjoyed our stay at Lemon Tree Villas. A lovely clean villa and beautiful pool, which was also spotlessly clean. Hosts were friendly and happy to help with any request. Good beaches were a short car ride away and the delightful town of Chania was not far. You would almost certainly need a car to get the most out of your stay.

The villa was amazing, with a very nice view on the sea and a private pool! The host Eleni and her mama provided us with good tips on restaurants and things to do in Chania. We had the best dining experience at The Well of the Turk in Chania. Will recommend the villa without any doubts to anyone!
