Physis Villas are located in Αghia, a small village located only 12 km from Chania Town. Accessible through a dust road, creating the feeling of a Safari adventure, on the way to the Villa, the visitors will pass from plenty of Supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Most of the inhabitants of Aghia deal with agriculture and cattle-breeding. The village consists of modern and traditional stone-built houses, while forests of olive, orange and avocado trees cover the slopes of the area.
Local markets & Shopping
In Alykianos, the village right next to Aghia, there are two Supermarkets for those daily essentials, offering local products.
Just 100 meters from the Villa, there is a Mini-Market, offering coffee and breakfast.
Every Saturday, in the city of Chania, is a market where you can pick up fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as the local yoghurts and cheese. The old town has a mix of shops ranging from a bootmaker to boutique clothing.
Bars & Restaurants
You'll be spoilt for choice on where to eat in the villages around the Villa. There are several tavernas that sell the local food cooked with traditional Cretan recipes. If you prefer fish, there are some waterfront restaurants that overlook the sea within 10 minutes drive. Or why not put on your dancing shoes and head to one of the many nightclubs or cocktail and music bars of Platanias or Chania city centre?
The beach of Platanias is around 10 minutes' drive from the Villa, with clear blue water and soft golden sand. There is also the Blue Flag beach of Agia Marina with plenty of sunbeds and parasols to hire and a selection of beach bars and tavernas, all about 1km away. For a day at the beach, Elafonisi, Falasarna and Balos are ideal destinations! There are white sand and pink hues and turquoise waters that ripple in the breeze. Both beaches are a bit far away, but it definitely worths driving there! Boat trips and luxury cruises can be arranged for a day in Balos.
For some fun in the sun, especially when the coastline close to the Villa is wavy, Limnoupolis Waterpark offers a great adventure for the whole family! About 10 minutes drive from the Villa, Limnoupolis with its waterslides for the energetic and the lazy river for the more laid-back members of the group can provide with moments of joy all the members of your company.
