Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Kalives - Villa Galania

2 bedroom, 2 bedroom Villa & Pool, featured in Sunday Times '100 Sexiest Villas'

Set on a small hill above the village of Armeni but only 800 metres from the village square, Villa Galania is ideally placed to enjoy the rural idyll whilst still being within reasonable walking distance of local shops and tavernas and just ten minutes by car from the sandy beaches of Kalives.

Although the villa was only recently completed the young owners have created a very atmospheric period style property with the skillful use of simple local materials. Covered balconies and terraces provide shade and succor from the heat of the sun, whilst the villas stone faced doorways and rough timbered ceilings add an authentic touch of the past.

Despite the historic Crete flavour, Villa Galania is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the owners really have ticked all the boxes down to the smallest detail.

Outside around the 9m x 4m pool and adjoining children's pool, there's a huge amount of living space including a smart alfresco cover dining area, a lounge area, a table soccer, plus a rusticated covered barbecue complete with Cretan oven and a small fridge for drinks, as well as a big string of crisp red onions hanging from a nail; there may even be some left as we only pinched a couple!

To one side there' a large area of lawn and in the shade of the Holme Oaks is a herb garden with the folk song classics of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.

Two covered terraces extend the length of the Vill: Overlooking the pool and inside; the ground floor is open plan with warm terracotta style tiled floors throughout. The living area decorated with interesting rural artefact's and attractive wall hangings is very appealing and has two sofas and large coffee table grouped in front of an open fireplace, To one side is a dining area with table and chairs and beyond here is the small well equipped kitchen, with a very large fridge freezer full oven with ceramic hobs and a dishwasher plus a kitchen sink with the bonus of lovely rural views towards the mountains.

At first floor level and reached by a wooden staircase is one twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and the slightly extravagant master bedroom with double bed, lovely stone fireplace and en-suite bathroom with a lavish corner bath to languish in. Both bedrooms have warm and tactile wood floors and French doors opening out onto covered balconies overlooking the pool and with views towards the mountains.

The perfect week

  • 5 out of 5
As on Radio 2 with Simon Mayo, it is 3 word Wednesday, I can think of the following for our stay at Villa Galania... perfect holiday villa!! Honestly, the villa has the best views, the pool was brilliant for our son, the location was perfect, the bedrooms were great. And the fact that both rooms were so beautiful is so refreshing. So often in a villa there is an obvious master room and then the second room is an after thought but in the case of Villa Galania, the second bedroom is delightful with its own bathroom and balcany. Can't fault it..thank you

Armeni, Crete

Something of a foodies paradise, the village of Armeni is notable for its large shady plain trees lining the main street where you will find a choice of simple cafenions and three excellent tavernas. There is also a small mini -market and amazingly, a well stocked delicatessen with wonderful local cheeses, yogurt and characterize as well as a large choice of frozen fish. First thing, fresh bread is delivered to the cafenion on the small triangular central square you'll see what we mean!

Nearby Kalives (approx 5min drive)

18 km east of Chania and strung along the edge of Souda Bay, Kalives is still very much a Greek village that has taken tourism in its stride and the bustling main street reflects the status quo with local shops, mini markets, tavernas and cafes happily doing business with all and sundry.

There's a pretty little river which huge trout are rumored to inhabit and where small plump ducks encourage children to feed them. Sheltered by the headland.
