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

45km to Chania airport (code CHQ)

Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is absolutely stunning place! Amazing view, amazing bedrooms... everything is just perfect. Around the area is plenty of places you can drive to and see beautiful beaches or traditional villages.
We knew it will be beautiful before we went but we didnt know it will take our breath away when we arrive.
Highly recommended.

UK and CZ family.

A Gem of a Villa

  • 5 out of 5
We have recently arrived home from 2 weeks at Villa Artemis. We are 2 families with children of 7, 11 and 13 years of age. On arrival all we could all say was 'WOW'. We have stayed in many villas over the years and Artemis was by far the best! The villa had everything we needed. It is architecturally beautiful, very spacious and immaculately clean. We were really happy that there were 2 master bedrooms for the adults! The swimming pools were wonderful with spectacular views and provided hours of fun for everyone. We loved having the lap pool to burn off the calories of the gorgeous Cretan food! Frosos, the lovely maid came every day and made sure that beds were made, bins emptied and everywhere looking clean. She was charming and discrete. The Villa is in the traditional village of Gavalochori and it is a short walk down a gentle hill. We loved going to buy bread from the bakery in the morning and the children loved the miniature ice creams sold here! We all adored the restaurant 'Gavalianos Kafenes' in the village - lovely food, excellent service in a beautiful setting! We often went to the nearby coastal village of Almirida where there is lovely sandy beaches and a great selection of tavernas and shops.
We spent a long time trying to find the perfect villa and we definitely found it with Artemis! We highly recommend this villa and we are already hoping to return next year. We were all really sad to leave!

Amazing Villa

  • 5 out of 5
This is the best villa we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many..We have been back 2 days and we are missing the villa and local area so much.. The villa is very luxurious, spacious and impressive.. The pools are immaculate and the outside area is clean and well maintained. The daily maid service was fantasitc and she is such a lovely lady.. very friendly and was great with the kids! We have 2 young daughters ( 5 and 2 years) who loved this villa and the smaller pool with the baby area meant we could relax knowing our 2 year old could paddle and swim about safely.
Gavalohori is beautiful but we didnt spend much time there as we loved Almirida where we went for meals and shopping. We didnt really have to go into Kalives at all. The view and countryside is amazing and sitting on the lounge balcony overlooking the valley is a memory I will never forget. You will need a car for this villa even thought the village is near.
I highly recommend this villa.. we will be definately going back! My only one slight fault was that the railings on the balcony were widely spaced apart and we had to keep an extra vigilant eye for out toddler but this is a small criritsm for such a great place!

Perfect luxury getaway with breathtaking views!

  • 5 out of 5
Hi, we stayed at villa Artemis in Setember 2009, it was fairly easy to find, location is perfect: views of the village below and mountains far ahead are simply breathtaking. Villa exceeded all our expectations, it has all modern cons listed in description, including satellite TV and PC with internet access. Pool area is nice and clean, plenty of towels were provided. Villa can be cleaned daily with the towel and sheet change, but we opted for a less frequent service. The nearby village shop has basic choice of food and toiletries, but we usually went to nearby Kalives (7 km) for our groceries, and to the butcher shop to get meat for our barbeques, which we had almost every day. Local taverna in Gavalochori serves very nice local food and has takeaway option(down the hill from the villa to the main square, take first left and 50 meters further on the right hand side) Nearest sandy beach is Almyrida (3 km), which is less than 10 minutes drive from the villa. So you definitely need a car to get around. Customer service from the owner and the lady who manages the villa is excellent. Special thanks from all of us to Christos and Froso, who made us feel very welcome throughout our stay and made this trip unforgettable. This villa is highly recommended by us:) We will definitely come back here again one day!

Vill Artemis

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Artemis was, without doubt, the most luxurious villa we have ever stayed in. The interior was well planned and very comfortable and spacious. Outside the two lovely pools had fantastic views of the village and mountains. The setting was perfect, quiet and rural but only a short walk to the village which had friendly tavernas and little shops. We were very sad to leave!!

Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokorona 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 centre and one could wander through several interesting sections of this officially protected village. Stone built houses with lovely backyards full of colourful 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 Gavalohori 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.
