Overview

About the property

Lovely one-bedroom Villa, baby friendly, BBQ facilities, peaceful environment!

A passion for curious exploration of the unexpected and the wish to feel close to nature again, are what will make you choose this unique Villa for your next holiday to Crete. Villa Armonia will provide you with a fulfilling sense of quiet, peace of mind and inner harmony - as its name suggests! Located in a picturesque village on the Cretan country side, this lovely Villa is just 5 minutes away from the amenities one will need during their self-catered holiday and only 10 minutes by car from a wonderful sandy beach on the north coast of the island.

Indoors

Villa Armonia is ideal for a couple’s vacation, but also for a small group as it can accommodate up to 6 guests. It’s a ground floor property, which covers 70 sq. m. and provides easy access to the indoor and outdoor spaces. As you enter the Villa, an open-plan area consisting of the living room, the fully equipped kitchen and the dining area, welcomes you right away on your left. The wooden ceiling, open fireplace and comfortable sofas, will make you instantly feel at home! Each sofa converts to a double bed that can sleep 4 additional guests. On your right hand you will find the double bedroom with the en-suite bathroom. In case you are travelling with a baby, please let us know as a baby cot, high chair, baby bath and a stroller are available on request. A laundry room featuring a washing machine, cleaning utensils, iron and iron board is also available. Once the day is done there is nothing more heavenly than returning to this private haven and have a revitalising, good night’s sleep.

Outdoors

The landscape outside your door makes this dreamy abode one you’ll be inspired to write home about. The Villa is located right across an old church, in a stone-paved narrow street, in a traditional settlement, which will immediately put you in the mood of the local way of life. Entering the Villa’s, arched, wooden door, you will find yourselves in your own personal Eden, a romantic courtyard of 100 sq. m., decorated with ceramic pithoi, potted plants and airy curtains. The stone walls and wooden fence will provide absolute privacy while the red roof tiles, private swimming pool (6 x 4 meters, 1.50 m deep) and lawn covered area beside it will dare you to spend as much of your time right there! The pool terrace is equipped with an outdoor shower and WC, sun beds and umbrellas, for your outmost comfort and relaxation. Additionally, BBQ facilities, outdoor dining and sitting areas are also available, inviting you to try al fresco dining, an experience that you will certainly love. Summer afternoons sat outdoors, hearing at the night birds and gazing upon the shiny stars, will create cherished reveries which will last long after your perfect holiday ends. The area is very quiet, especially in the evening, when you can saunter around the charming villages with the only dilemma being choosing your favourite building, pathway or olive tree. To make things even better, right next to the Villa, there’s a garden with home grown, seasonal vegetables, where our guests are free to hand-pick everything they need for their salads and meals! Finally, bicycles are provided, so you can explore the village and nearby locations, exercise or just take a long walk.

A wonderfully private and peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Armonia from late August to mid September and absolutely loved it. The villa is located in a tiny, clean village that was incredibly quiet both during the day and night. It's essential to have a car to get to and get about, but there is a great local taxi company that will come to pick you up and return you to places like Panormo beach if you wanted a night out. The local village Perama has lots of shops for getting villa essentials, or if you need a pharmacy, and Thraka restaurant even deliver pizza, pasta and Greek food to the villa if you're too lazy to move!

The villa is spotlessly clean, and has everything you need whether you're using it as a base to travel, or spending the whole day in there relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner, Amalia, who left us the most beautiful gifts nearly every day, including homemade cheeses, local raki, olives and a wonderful supply of fresh fruit and vegetables from their garden. She is on hand all of the time, and really made us feel welcome.

There are some wonderful walks with historical ruins not far away in any direction, and amazing ruins like Knossos only an hours drive away. Gorgeous seafood and an abundance of vegetarian options in restaurants everywhere, but especially beautiful food in Panormo, and Margarites art village.

If you want a relaxing villa, away from tourists, that you can use as a base for exploring or just relaxing, this is 100% the villa for you. We can't recommend it enough!

Beautiful, remote place. Amalia super nice and friendly.

  • 4 of 5

Property it self was beautiful to stay and Amalia lady who was looking after us was so friendly and nice, couldn’t have a better option. She baked a cake for us,made moussaka . She definitely made our stay special.

It’s very quiet and remote place, no places to eat around in walking distance, niearest reasonable restaurant or taverna is about 15 km away.

If you like quiet surroundings it’s definetily place to stay.

Excellent villa and patio in an idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week exploring the local countryside then barbecuing in a perfect quiet and private location.

The owner Amalia could not have done any more to make our stay comfortable and memorable. She was very generous with her time, responding immediately to any request we made. She also supplied us with an abundance of fresh and most welcome produce - we enjoyed everything she brought to us from fresh tomatoes and vegetables from the garden her husband tended opposite the villa, to the home made yoghurt and cheese pies (a local delicacy) she made at home. The villa was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean and the garden a delight full of fresh flowers.

Five stars from us. Thank you Amalia.
