Darmarochori Village, Kolymbari, Chania, Crete-Greece


Darmarochori is a picturesque village of Kolimbari in the western part of Chania; Crete’s second largest City (often spelled Hania).  The area is surrounded by open green hillsides, full of olive groves and vineyards as far as the eye can see, till the magnificent White Mountains take your breath away… and as if that is not enough, wonderful unblocked sea view towards Kamisiana bay decorates the scenery.

Darmarochori is only a few minutes by car from the seemingly endless beach of Kolimbari and the small hidden coves of “Spatha” peninsular. Kolimbari (sometimes is spelled Kolymbari or Kolympari), which is the administrative and commercial centre of the area is also very close. The City of Chania can be reached within 15 – 20 minutes from the Kolimbari junction of the national road. There is a mini market for the everyday necessities and a well known tavern for your evening meals.

Darmarochori is also very close to the village of Vouves where you can see the oldest olive tree in Crete.  This ancient olive tree is one of seven olive trees in the Mediterranean believed to be at least 2,000 to 3,000 years old.  Although its exact age cannot be verified, the Olive Tree of Vouves might be the oldest among them, estimated at over 3,000 years old.  It still produces olives, and they are highly prized.
