The charming sea-front Athena Villas belong to the prestigious Divine Villas, located a stone's throw from the sandy beaches of Tersanas village, in the north corner of the always-sunny Crete.
Recommended nearby restaurants serving mouth-watering traditional Greek dishes are the Sunset taverna in Tersanas (1.3 km) and the Irene tavern in Chorafakia (2.4 km).
Interesting sailing trips depart every day from the little harbour of the gorgeous beach of Maherida (500m), taking you to the best spots across the Chania Bay well as to impressive islands such as Thodoru and Lazaretta.
Along with the above sightseeing opportunities, keep in mind that the Akrotiri Peninsula has a number of unique archeological sites which are certainly worth a visit. Explore the caves of Stavros, Arkalospilio and Arkaudospilius, and discover the fascinating history lying behind the Gouverneto and Saint John the Hermit monasteries.
A visit to Chania, which also hosts an airport, is equally recommended. The city, that has seen many civilisations come and go over thousands of years of settlement, from Minoans to Romans, Byzantine to Ottoman, this rich history has carved out a unique and mysterious town.
Most of the restaurants, museums, churches and craft shops centre around the gorgeous Venetian harbour, which represents a window into the past Turkish and Venetian architecture that has otherwise largely been destroyed by war. Watching the sunset past the old lighthouse is a truly unmissable experience, but the area offers a different picturesque aesthetic at any given time of day.
The dramatic, mountainous interior of Crete is also well worthy of exploration, remaining unspoilt and largely unchanged for hundreds of years. Incredible churches, and sleepy little villages are hidden round every bend as you wind your way across the sun baked landscape.
