Villa Olivia has a beautiful, very peaceful hilltop location, with stunning views of the bay, but you really need a car to get here as a very steep drive on a track to access the villa. It's worth it! The house is modern and comfortable, with tastefully simple decor and a light, airy feel. We loved the fact that you don't need ac on all the time because you have a lovely gentle breeze coming from the bay. This means even when the temp was 36c, it never felt too hot beside the pool. The pool itself is gorgeous and has an infinity pool feel to it, with views of the bay in front of you. Too many good things to go on about in the area, but quick recommendation the Douliana taverna in the village (10 mins from villa) is just brilliant - well worth a visit.

The Villa is excellent with all of the amentities required. The property is very well maintained and very clean. There are excellent views from the upstairs balcony, especially the mountains in the morning. Its quiet location masks the fact that it is only a few minutes walk to the beach and bars. Almyrida is a small village with excellent bars and tavernas along the beach. While being small, the bus services are very good and run often from Alymrida to the resort of Chania. Overall, this is a lovely Villa in a beautiful location. Highly Recommended.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We spent 10 days here at the end of June, The villa is lovely, well equipped cool and spacious with enough areas for everybody to spread out, the bedrooms are nicely decorated with comfortable beds and quiet fans, all leading to outdoor patios. The view from the upstairs patio is amazing especially at sunset. I had the twin room downstairs which was lovely for me, nice and quiet, the patio doors lead out to a patio area near the pool and outside my door was a beautiful jasmine tree. The pool area is great we spent most of our time here, there are 6 comfortable sun loungers and parasols.The villa is situated at the top of a hill 1km from Almyrida which has nice tavernas (very romantic as the sun is setting)and small beaches. We did have a hire car but to be honest it only takes 20 mins to walk to the town and if need be a return taxi cost 7 euro (the walk there and back we even did with a pushchair so is do-able if your feeling fit enough) There are many tours available from the town, so plenty of options to travel around, we walked the Samaria gorge on our last day..stunning but now I need new knees haha. Driving around is easy enough once you've mastered the wrong side of the road and that most cars drive into the hard shoulder to enable overtaking, so watch your mirrors. The nearest seaside town is Kalyves a ten minute drive, well worth a visit, Chania and Georgiopolis are a 35 min drive. As a family of 6 with small children we all loved our stay and would definitely return. A big thank you to Peter and Alison for sharing their lovely home.
