Make holiday rental accommodation or an apartment in Almirida, Crete your home away from home

Almirida started out as a small fishing village on the east of Souda Bay in Crete. Over the years, the combination of lovely beaches, important historical sites and charming atmosphere of the village started to attract visitors, and Almirida has never looked back. In the last few years, holiday accommodation in Almirida has increased, providing more options for your stay. This development has not altered the atmosphere though, meaning the famously relaxing resort is still an ideal place to escape to.

Things to do on holiday in Almirida, Crete

Archaeologists have discovered a range of 5th century tombs from the ancient Foinikes era. The wonderful mosaics which adorn the entrances to the tombs have been wonderfully preserved, and are well worth visiting from any of the self catering accommodation in Almirida. As with much of Crete, Almirida has a wealth of natural treasures too. The short walks to the Gorge of St Nikolas and the Diktamo Gorge as well as the 250 caves which are scattered along the coast are magnificent places to explore.

Walking from an Almirida apartment or villa is a hugely rewarding activity as there is just so much to see. Remnants of ancient walls, WWII tunnels and islets covered in migratory bird species are your reward for your efforts, especially if you head around the Bay of Almirida. The woodland behind the village is some of the only unspoilt woodland in Crete, and for much of the year, the only sounds to be heard there are the footsteps of fellow walkers or the soft song of birds. Mountain bikes can also be hired from vendors in the village, so you can set out into the hills at a more vigorous pace.

The thin, sandy beach which lines the whole of the bay is not only the focal point for visitors and locals during the day. In the evenings, the tavernas, cafes, bars and shops are the main social centres in the village, where people congregate to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and catch up with friends. The beach is safe for children, as it slopes gently into the warm waters of the Mediterranean. There is also a windsurfing school for those who would like to try their hand.

Good country walks on the doorstep, easy driving distance to Chania. The Villa was very clean and all essential needs were provided. We found the people of Crete very helpful and friendly, and very much so enjoyed our visit. Local food produce was fresh and the meals at the local Taverna's we visited were wonderful! A very relaxing atmosphere in the Villa, surrounded by mountain views. A great place to feel away from the 'hussle and bussle' of life. Plenty to do if you like nature and ancient history and good food!

The apartment description was accurate, lots of lovely touches that Panos has taken time over to ensure a most comfortable stay. We were two couples who didn't want to leave. The apartment was great for us almost 2 separate apartments with lovely communal area, all spotlessly clean. Panos was so helpful and welcoming, lovely welcome pack ,arranging a taxi for us and meeting us and seeing us off fabulous😄򑀠the location is fantastic, the view from the window and roof garden wow😄򑀠And what a welcome from francoise cafe bar wonderful service, very humorous staff Kostas and his secretary (Happy) and the owner great would recommend 100%. Lots of lovely tavernas, gorgeous beach, it was difficult to leave the resort but we did. Try elanfonisi,kalyves,falasarno to name a few. Rethymon, Chania the old towns are a must. Car Hire and taxi so easy to arrange. Panos is a fabulous host, thank you so much for making us welcome in your country, your apartment is the nicest we have stayed in , the welcome you gave us and the help and assistance from the start of booking to the day we left was second to none. We had so much fun, we would definitely recommend to friends and family and would love to come back very soon. Thank you Almiryda, thank you Francoise and your lovely staff and most of all thank you Panos, it was a pleasure to meet you. Kind Regards Kathryn, Colin, Sue & Dean
