“Fantastic villa”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We are just back from a one week stay at Olive Farm. We were a group of 10 adults away to celebrate one of the groups 40th birthday. The villa was perfect for the occasion, it is really 2 villas conjoined with shared patio space. The larger villa consisted of 3 bedrooms, the smaller villa 2 bedrooms and one further twin room in the basement. It really suited our needs and has everything you require. We never hired a car, usually walking down to Agia Marina which took around 15-20mins. A taxi to get back up was around 7€. The actual resort was very quiet due to a combination of Greek Easter and start of season, but found Plantanias a little livelier in the evening( and cost around 10€ to get back to the villa). We made plenty of use of the BBQ for evening meals and the shared patio space was ideal for a group of friends (like us) or for family usage.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa & hope to be able to return again in the near future.

“Perfect villa for a holiday with your extended family”

We rented this villa to take our two sons and their families (total of 6 adults and 4 children aged 6 to 11) for a weeks holiday to get some sun and beach-life before the Norwegian Winter season starts. It turned out that Olive Farm was a perfect choice, with two swimming pools outside and to indoors with jacuzzioptions, one of these were heated (costs extra) - as well as table tennis and good training equipment.
Lots of space with altogether 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens, big balconies both in front and back as well as large terraces on the ground floor.
Five minutes to drive down to the Agio Marina beach where it was wonderful for both grown-ups and children to swim and play, and tavernas in line to serve your needs.
Quiet neighborhood, the national road passed some hundred metres down the road but was not a problem.
Having a car is strongly recommendable, especially if travelling with children. Only a 10-15 minutes drive to Chania, a wonderful town for looking, eating and shopping.
