|The village of Chorafakia in the Akrotiri, Crete|
The beach of Tersanas is situated on the Akrotiri Peninsula (about 13 kilometer north east of Chania to which it is connected by bus - the bus stops in nearby Chorafakia). It consists of a couple of small sandy beaches around a small bay, and there are a couple of umbrellas and sunbeds for rent. In the surrounding there are a few small hotels and pensions. Next to the beach there is a taverna and of one of the small beaches there is a cantina where you can get something to drink. Tersanas used to be the harbour of the village of Chorafakia, which is situated a bit more inland and where you find most of the facilities (1 kilometer north of Tersanas beach). Close to Tersanas there are two other nice beaches Kalathas (3 kilometer) and Stavros (4 kilometer).
Close by the beaches of Tersanas in the village of Chorafakia there are a few shops and some more tavernas. Like on all the other beaches on the Akrotiri peninsula it can get more busy during the weekends when the people of Chania use their free days to spend some time on the beach. In Tersanas there are different kinds of accommodations: hotel rooms, studios, apartments and villas.
|Tersanas Taverne - Tersanas beach|
The Tersanas Taverna is located near the beaches of Tersanas. It's a nice place with a nice view of the bay and beaches. You can order seafood, but also other Greek dishes. We order the Tersanas salad and the meat platter for two. The salad comes with two different delicious sauces, the service is friendly.
Our verdict: an 8 out of 10

|Villa Venatiana, Kalathas & Tersanas Beach - especially for couples or lovers|
Villa Venetiana is situated on the outskirts of Horafakia Village on the Akrotiri, close to three beaches: Tersanas, Kalathas and Stavros Beach. Horafakia is on the western side of the Akrotiri and has good access for the rest of the peninsula as well as Chania and Western Crete. Just 7 kilometres away from Chania airport and 14 kilometers from the town of Chania. Venetiana is a distinct complex, with its tiled side and generously sized uniquely shaped pool. Visitors may find that the other guests have gone out for the day to the to one of the local beaches or site seeing and enjoy the pool virtually to themselves. Some of our guests enjoy a day of relaxing around the pool or simply for a start or close of the day refreshing swim. All rooms feature modern comforts and amenities as to satisfy the needs even of the most demanding guests. An ideal choice for those seeking a relaxing holiday and at the same time exploring the wonderful surroundings of the area.
Villa Venetiana is designed in the Venetian style, with pink-washed walls, mosaic tiles and deep green woodwork, the typical colour theme employed in the old Cretan 'metochi' or manor house of the Venetian Aristocracy. However, the Venetians would never have seen such an enchanted garden as that created by Yiannis, the owner of Villa Venetiana, who is a Cretan sculptor and artist. Yiannis has been creating this uniquely imaginative whimsy as his monument and is constantly in search of unusually shaped rocks or stones to add to his creation. Minoan red pillars, vibrantly painted panels around the splendid pool and stone niches compete for the eye's attention with Yiannis' own sculptures.
Located on The Akrotiri, an unspoilt peninsular in Western Crete, is a beautiful sandy cove called Tersanas. In the valley above the cove is situated Villa Venetiana very close to the village of Horafakia, where there are a selection of traditional tavernas, a bakery, supermarket, and a Kafeneon / mini market and all this is just 12 kilometres from the city of Chania.
Villa Venetiana is situated near the village of Horafakia, a small village in the centre of The Akrotiri Peninsular and close to Chania, the Airport and Souda Bay Port. Horafakia is on the bus route from Chania & Stavros and has good local amenities with restaurants, supermarket, petrol stations and car rental all within a few minutes walk or drive from Villa Venetiana. The pace of life in Tersanas is still slow and sleepy so, with it's little sandy beach, easy access to Chania and in close proximity to a good selection of traditional tavernas. Tersanas is an ideal choice for a relaxing holiday.
Villa Venetiana in Tersanas is the ideal solution for those without children to find true peace and relaxation. The setting is wonderfully secluded, the pool is gorgeous and each of the eight maisonettes are only ever rented to two adults so that the pool and gardens never become crowded.
