Villa Kalaria is located nearby the village of Tsikalaria which sits at the foot of the mountain ‘Malaxa.’ This is an extremely traditional village that still uses the blossom of sour orange trees to produce rose water. The quaint village is charming to simply wander around and boasts plenty of sights to see. Many festivals and celebrations take place in the village, including The St. Antoine festival, The St. John festival and the rosewater festival that takes place during the springtime.
The Byzantine church of Panagia in the village is a beautiful piece of architecture worth seeing. In the centre of the village lies a Turkish mosque as well as the village’s central spring water fountain. The mosque was previously a church dedicated to St. Nicolas and is also home to a Turkish coffee shop. The church of St. Antoine is another great attraction which features a newly renovated bell tower.
Kalamaki is a quiet nearby beach famous for being a mecca for turtles. It’s common to see baby turtles hatch and then crawl into the sea on this beach. As well as watching the turtles go by, visitors to Kalamaki can rent a sun lounger and parasol for the day and enjoy the dazzling sunshine. There is also a local taverna situated nearby where authentic Greek dishes can be enjoyed.

How to reach Chania
There are two ways to reach Chania: either by flight or by ferry.
By plane: Chania Airport (CHQ) is only a 20 minutes ride away from central Chania. During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect Chania city and most of the villas. You can also hire a car from one of the many rental companies at the airport, or alternatively get a taxi to bring you right to your doorstep.
By ferry: If you choose to do an island-hopping trip and use the ferry as a method of transportation, then the closest port is in Souda, only 8km from the centre of Chania. Only ferries from Piraeus in Athens or Heraklion in Crete. Heraklion port has a wider choice: you can also take a ferry from other Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos or Paros, but you will have to take a longer bus ride to reach your villa. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.
Crete, the largest Greek island, offers a plethora of exciting and educational activities for kids, making it an ideal family destination. With its rich history, stunning landscapes, and warm Mediterranean climate, children can immerse themselves in a world of fun and learning.

Water parks like Aqua Plus and Limnoupolis provide thrilling water slides and pools for endless entertainment. The Cretaquarium offers a captivating underwater world, showcasing marine life from the Mediterranean Sea, sparking curiosity about the oceans.
Exploring ancient ruins and historical sites like the Palace of Knossos can be an exciting adventure, where children can learn about the Minoan civilization and Greek mythology. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum displays fascinating artifacts, bringing history to life.
For nature lovers, Samaria Gorge offers a family-friendly hike amidst breathtaking scenery, while Botanical Park & Gardens of Crete introduces children to diverse plant life and animals.
Kids can also experience Cretan culture through cooking classes, learning to prepare traditional dishes like dakos and loukoumades.
