Further comments about the area:

The villa is located on a hillside in the village of Gavalochori in West Crete. Gavalohori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokoron region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Its location is 25 km east of Chania which takes about 20 minutes drive along the National Road. Gavalochori is an old historical village with approximately 500 residents which has retained its color and way of life. Several family run tavernas offer the visitor tasty dishes of Cretan cuisine. Near the small village square and within walking distance from the villa there is a coffee shop, a bakery, a mini mart, two tavernas and the Folk Art Museum. The surrounding area has several beautiful nature paths for walking or biking which lead either towards the sea or towards the White mountains. The coastal village of Almirida is less than 10 minutes driving distance. In Almirida you may find all basic facilities, such as a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, ATM, gas station and taxi service. It has a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear water and a shallow section particularly suitable for small kids. This Blue Flag rated beach is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and sea sports services. There are several sea side tavernas and bars offering exquisite sea food and night entertainment. The large town of Chania of course offers the visitor a wider range of choices for shopping, dining and night life mostly centered around the old Venetian port. Some interesting monuments in Chania town are the covered Municipal Market, the Venetian fortifications, the Egyptian Lighthouse, the Synagogue, the Fortress of Firkas, the Mosque of Giali Tzamisi, the Arsenals, and the Othrodox Cathedral.

The villa can be used as a base for visiting several points of interest in the area:

3km to nearest beach of Almirida

10km to the exquisite beach of Georgoupolis and Kournas lake

25km to Chania town for shopping and night life

15km to seaside village of Kalives

20km to port of Souda

Villa Aphrodite, June 2009

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Aphrodite was exactly what they promised. Customer service was good and friendly, and the property was well-maintained and in good condition. The pool area was great especially for adults. For the kids the pool may be too deep and there was no grass or space to play. Also a lot of stairs. We rented a car and I recommend it for others too. The nearest beach, Almyrida, is not in walking-distance. Gavalohori was a quiet but friendly village with a couple of tavernas and markets.

If you are looking for a peaceful and beautiful place to spend a week or a two, this could be your choice. At least we liked it.

Super Extra Great

  • 5 out of 5
Hi,
I had a 10 days ta with kid and wife in August 2008. :)
Just to tell we had an great vacation at this Villa.
Everything was just great.
For exemple, when we arrived at 22h30 at the villa, a staff was waiting us with great food softs and wine...
If you are waiting from your holidays a certain "niveau" you will found it there.
The place in it self is super located at the top of a small village, the people who manage the villa are so kind and friendly.
The village is a real typical Cretian village.
No noice, unbeliavable view with the mountains in back view, super pool, great food (you can order).
What can I say more ....


I'm booking for this spring :)
with kid, wife, father, mother, and cousins...

In one word, if you need a relax and luxury Cretian stay.
Don't hesitate to book one of this villas.

Grozügiges Haus mit allen Annehmlichkeiten.

  • 5 out of 5
Die Beschreibung ist exakt zutreffend.
Das Highlight: die Terasse mit Panoramablick zum Einnehmen der Mahlzeiten.
Technisch fast schon überausgestattet: PS2(Spiele mitnehmen!), benutzbarer Computer, W-Lan,
Riesenfernseher(eigentlich wird all das ja kaum gebraucht!)
Es gibt jedenfalls eine Menge Platz (auch in allen Küchengeräten!)
Einziges kleines Manko: Die Dusche im Parterre ist unpraktisch und
daher dauerfeucht. Alles andere im Haus aber sehr sauber.
Ein paar praktische Tips:
Ein größerer Supermarkt ist im lebhaften Kalives(Inka), zum Essen oder Baden ist der Ort aber meiner Erfahrung nach zu meiden.
In Almyridia isst man durchweg gastfreundlicher, besser und preiswerter.
In Gavalochori ist auch die Gaststätte Aposperitis sehr zu empfehlen.
Der Hauptstrand in Almyridia ist sehr flach und familienfreundlich und
nicht überfüllt. Ruhiger und genauso flach ist da Kera, gleich nach der
Tankstelle Richtung Kalives rechts, mit einem anschwimmbaren Kreidefelsen im rechten Teil der Bucht, die flache Sandzone ist allerdings rechts.
1 km vor dem Leuchtturm am Akrotiri Drapanon ist auf einer Betonstraße eine ruhige nur etwa 10 m schmale, 150 m tiefe Bucht mit Felseinrahmung bis zum offenen Meer schnell erreicht. Aber nur zum Schwimmen oder Schnorcheln zu gebrauchen.
Und dann wäre natürlich noch die 9 km von der Wohnung entfernte
sehr wenig frequentierte landschaftlich herrliche Bucht von Paleiloni.
Gleich nach dem nördlichen Ortsende von Paleiloni weist ein Wegweiser zu einer Taverne, diese ist ganz unten in der Bucht.
Die schmale Straße verläuft angenehm geradlinig. Die Bucht ist nach Osten gerichtet und so gegen Westwind geschützt.
Zum Hinlegen gibt es nur zwei betonierte Flächen, die Farben des Meers
und der Landschaft sind sehr intensiv, die Ruhe wohltuend, Der Zugang
ist leicht, man kann sofort schwimmen.

Sehr schönes Ferienhaus!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir, eine Familie mit 4 Kindern, waren im Sommer 2008 in der Villa Aphordite. Alle beschriebenen Ausstattungsmerkmale waren vorhanden und in einem wirklich gehobenen Standard. Am schönsten ist die Terasse mit Blick auf die Berge und der herrliche Pool.
Mit der Betreuung vor Ort waren wir sehr zufrieden. Reinigung und Verpflegung bestens.

Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokoron region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Gavalochori is an old historical village with approximately 500 residents. It is a typical Cretan village with a small square where a coffee shop, a bakery, a mini mart, two tavernas and other convenient stores can be found. Several narrow streets branch off its center and one could wander through several interesting sections of this officially protected village. Stone built houses with lovely backyards full of colorful flowers can be found . A lot of interesting buildings can be seen, such as the 18th century two-roomed, arched olive oil press, the temples of Panagia and Agios Sergios, the old school, and the historical folk art museum. Within a short distance (5km) from tranquil Gavalochori one can drive to Almirida, a picturesque coastal village. You may dine there in one of several seaside tavernas or relax sipping your drink by a bar during sunset.
