Villa Jason resort is not far inland from the resort of Maleme, a quiet historical seaside village in western Crete. It is only 16kms from Chania, the capital city of the region. Maleme is built on small hills between the small rivers Tavronitis and Geranis and is surrounded by hundreds of olive trees, oranges, tangerines, lemon trees and vineyards. The locals are known for their Cretan hospitality and willingness to help. Maleme has a well organized tourism infrastructure but is a quieter resort than nearby lively Platanias. Having said that, there are plentiful bars and restaurants, especially by the sea where you can have a lunch after a swim, or enjoy dinner watching the beautiful sunset. There is also a pharmacy, a supermarket and a mini market, a bakery, a butcher and a souvenir shop, so basic needs are covered by a few shops. A frequent bus service runs to Chania, a 'must' see for any visitor to western Crete. The atmosphere of Chania is vibrant and cosmopolitan, and it is an absolute delight to stroll around the Venetian harbour with its charming, characteristic narrow streets where you’ll find an abundance of tavernas, cafes, bars and shops. The village is also an excellent starting point for further exploration of western Crete whether your interest be archaeological, walking, cycling, or simply relaxing and enjoying some of the wonderful beaches. The beach at Maleme is part pebble and part sand is far less crowded than the beaches of Gerani, Agia Marina and Platanias. It is one of the beaches of Municipality of Platanias which have been awarded Blue Flag, the official certificate for clean and safe beaches. There is an excellent pedestrian road that runs along the beach and is perfect for an evening stroll. From the beach you can see Theodorou or Agioi Theodoroi, an uninhabited island and a preservation area for the Cretan wild goat.
Villa Jason resort has 3 villas named Natali, Aphrodite, and Argo, each with its own beauty and style set in a total area of 10 acres for you to lavish in the beauty and serenity of the natural environment. It is quietly located about 5 minutes away from the main resort.As the villas are independent but at the same time in the same grounds, it makes a sensible and excellent choice of accommodation for large parties who may have a reason to celebrate, a wedding or an anniversary perhaps, and want to gather family and friends all in one place.
