Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Almyrida

Spectacular Mountain and Sea Views from these Truly Beautiful First Line Villas

35 minutes drive from Chania airport, these fully air conditioned villas are located in what must be the ideal position in Almyrida. They enjoy olive groves and mountain views to the rear, 2 shared pools and are within an easy 6minute walk to all the shops and beach restaurants of Almyrida, with their stunning views across Souda Bay. Each villa has several balconies on which to relax and enjoy the views, and of course lounge, kitchen and dining accommodation and private car parking. The villas are set in beautifully landscaped gardens with extended areas for lounging around the pools. Numerous local villages provide alternative places of interest and lively Chania with its Saturday market is a 35 minute drive away.

The garden areas are beautifully landscaped & are well maintained as some of the villas are permanent residences, with twice weekly pool maintenance.

Almyrida Beach is flat and sandy and slopes very gently into the clear turquoise water, making it ideal and safe for children. Along the beach are a number of restaurants offering diners a wide range of inexpensive local cuisine, (still 7-8 euros, including wine), whilst enjoying breathtaking views across the beach and bay. The sunsets in this part of Crete are spectacular as the sun falls across Souda Bay.

Chania airport, with UK flights in and out on Tuesdays, is a 35 minute drive away. A hire car is not essential as a fixed price taxi one way costs 40 euros, and is available directly outside the arrivals hall. Local buses provide a regular service to Kalives further up the coast, and to Chania which is not to be missed for its beautiful back street restaurants, shops, stunning architecture and lively harbour. Heraklion airport now has Jet2 flights and is a 2 hour drive on the National Highway.

Kalives (2.8 Km) is great for a local breakfast and Plaka (1.6Km), provides a tranquil insight into unspoilt Cretian village life. Both are well recommended, and of course Chania is to not to be missed. Once you've been you will have to go back!

All amenities are on your doorstep. Local and inexpensive supermarkets and a bakery just minutes from the villas will provide everything you need for your self-catering holiday. As well as the delights of Almyrida and Chania we provide our guests with an extensive list of places to visit, to plan days out, and to enjoy everything the locality has to offer.

Nothing to complain about

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 adults and four children aged 2 years to 12 years. There was nothing to complain about, it was clean and we had everything we needed.

Good family villa in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We stopped in Villa Gig 3 with our three grown-up children and our daughter-in-law and had a lovely time in Almyida. The facilities of the villa were as described and the views from the upstairs balcony towards the White Mountains were amazing! The villa was well located within easy walking distance of the village, the lovely beaches and restaurants. The owners were very helpful with directions and suggestions of things to do. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the pool, whilst not enormous was very clean and quiet and we almost had it to ourselves though there is very little shade for those who like to sit around and sunbathe all day. Almyrida is a nice family resort with only a couple of hotels and no nightclubs as far as we could tell. We certainly found plenty to keep us busy and would consider visiting this area again.

Brilliant accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this villa, it had everything you could want for a holiday. There were only two of us, but the equipment and facilities would be suitable for bigger groups. The rooms were delightful, with front and rear balcony and patios. Two swimming pools, that being on a small complex were normally empty, and beautiful to swim in. it is a short walk to the beach and tavernas on the front. A delightful villa in ideal location, highly recommended. Lots nearby, but ideally need a car to travel further afield

Very Nice Villa in Almyrida, Crete

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 2 adults and 2 teenagers in 3rd week of October 2009.

Very Nice villa, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 terasses, everything clean and fully functioning.

Close to Almyrida Centre, with restaurants and beach (only 10 minutes walk away).30 minutes from Chania and Airport by car.

Lovely surroundings with nice swimming pools - preferred the beach though as the pools were to cold in October.

Highly recommendable

Lovely villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful autumn break in Almyrida. The villa was perfect, spacious, clean, well equipped and ideally situated for a relaxing holiday. Only a 5 minute gentle walk to the restaurants and beach. The beach is stoney in some areas but for the most part sandy with a gentle slope into the sea, ieal for young families. There is a nice selection of beach side bars and restaurants in Almyrida or you could take a walk into the nearby village of Plaka for a more authentic look at Crete.

Chania airport, with UK flights in and out on Tuesdays, is a 35 minute drive away. A hire car is not essential as a fixed price taxi one way costs 40 euros, and is available directly outside the arrivals hall. Local buses provide a regular service to Kalives further up the coast, and to Chania. Heraklion airport now has flights 7 day a week from Gatwick & 4 days per week from Manchester, and is a 2 hour direct journey on the National Highway. Therefore we have no specific change-over day.

Kalives (2.8km) is great for a local breakfast and Plaka (1.6km), provides a tranquil insight into unspoiled Cretian village life. Both are well recommended, and of course Chania is to not to be missed. Once you've been you will have to go back!
