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.

                                                The view is stunning. I could stay up here all day! In fact it is like an eyrie. Noises waft in from the surrounding olive groves and up the valley from the town far below. It is so quiet and calm, next to the gem-like pool. The garden is fairly new and has to grow in. It consists of terraces below the pool terrace, which is level with the avli. Both kitchen and living room open onto the avli, providing flow between indoors and out. Lovely arrangement of bedrooms, each with balcony access. All in all, a really well thought out retreat: comfortable, clean, well provisioned... But the view is to die for!

                                                Clean, very well equipped apartment with lovely views. Nice sized pool in pleasant garden area. Lovely balcony for sitting out and barbecue. Close to amenities, excellent tavernas and lovely sandy beach, ideal for swimming and safe for children. Comfy beds. All this makes for a very enjoyable, comfortable stay.
