Local Area Information

Tholos Beach is a mere 5 minute drive from the villa.  The beach is formed at the exit of a fertile valley, surrounded by ancient olive groves and vineyards.  The beautiful beach is pebbly and sandy on its west side and hosts a small harbor. There are several tamarisk trees near the beach where you can find shade and a new taverna is being built on the beach opening 2017. The water is an unusual blurred colour of exotic tropical turquoise which is due to the underwater springs of fresh water coming from the massif of Thipti mountain (Tholos means blurred in Greek)




In the local village of Kavousi traditional fresh Cretan food is available at a number of Taverns.
