7 night price

Property Description

Conveniently located a short walking distance from the beach, Atlantica Caldera Villas is a fantastic family retreat, consisting of 7 villas of various size, in the lovely village of Platanias, 11 km west from Chania City.

This exceptional villa offers roomy accommodation for up to eight guests, providing luxurious facilities in a sophisticated environment. All bedrooms are en-suite and enjoy wonderful views over the landscaped gardens and surrounding olive and orange groves. The highlight is the half indoor/half outdoor pool, perfect for both high season and low season holidays.

Outside, there is plenty of space to chill in total relaxation, either taking refreshing dips, sunbathing, lying on one of the comfortable sun loungers or simply marvelling at the stunning surrounding scenery.

What you should know…

  • You can get the occasional power cut in Crete but fortunately the Atlantica Caldera Villas benefit from their own generator which kicks in immediately if there’s an outage.
  • Hiring a car is not essential but might be handy to explore the island!

Platanias, owing its name to the river which in legendary Homer’s time was called the “Lardanos”, is a lively seaside resort located at just 11 km west from Chania.

If the new town bustles with waterfront bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels and incredibly sandy beaches, the hillside old part known as Ano Platanias is still steeped in history and tradition.

Together with the close by Agia Marina, this is for sure one of the most popular areas in the island, able to offer unforgettable holiday experiences to families with children, couples and groups of friends alike.

A visit to Chania, which also hosts an airport, is also 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.

Be sure to sample the fresh fish they pull in from the harbour each day, or even take a boat out and do some fishing or snorkeling yourself!
