This is a super little holiday villa set in a quiet mountain village, surrounded by the sounds of crickets, chickens, goats and the occasional stray tourist. Small, modest and decorated to suit your comforts. The villa has views over the mountains and is set on a private domaine. The pool is shared between 4 other villas who are hardly ever there, no children ever seen or heard! The Villa has a front garden and seating area with a parking space for one car. The front entrance leads you into an open plan kitchen/dining/living room. The kitchen is equipped with a washing machine, fridge, cooker, hob, microwave and some marigolds for the washing up! There is a small table with chairs, a two seat sofa bed and a chair bed, ideal for a party overflow!! Downstairs wc. The Patio doors lead to the sunny back garden/terrace, a great area to enjoy your morning coffee whilst contemplating the days events. Your direct neighbour is a stunning vegetable patch growing some weird and wonderful greenery. Upstairs there is a large, bright and very cosy bedroom, all inclusive with a sun terrace ideal for catching the afternoon rays whilst sipping a nice cold glass of something refreshing. Shower and wc en suite. Air conditioning upstairs and down. No TV. Wifi can be obtained from the local teverna situated 5 minutes around the corner who additionally serve super food, and a village shop another minute away.

Good stay on the whole
Lovely spacious bedroom and the bathroom is also a suitable size with plenty of clean towels. Whole property was pristine clean throughout when we arrived. Downstairs is very small and cluttered (mainly with the owners belongings). Wifi was an issue as the owner relies on the previous guest to have left it topped up! It is a mobile wifi which we had enormous problems getting the correct card for, although told very easy. Not! If you rely on wifi for contact with work then it is advisable that you take your own with you. The water pressure was also an issue as it was very low (we were warned of this before our arrival) but became non-existent one night when, after a long hot day, we had to go out to eat without a shower. We understand that the owner will be sorting out this issue like other villas in the complex this summer. Hopefully this will not be an issue once sorted. The local Taverna was exceptional. Friendly staff and so cheap. The pool was also lovely. Would recommend villa apart from the couple of negative comments.
Thank you for your input. The top up method for WiFi is indeed very simple if you go to a voda phone outlet ( nearest one in Souda)and pay 10 euro . Your sim is then automatically topped up. No complaints from other guests. Shower issue is sorted with new tank installed and the clutter mentioned could be classed as furniture which one needs in order to sit down at times. My little villa is Cosy as described.
The town of Chania is a MUST visit. The Samaria George has to be done, remember to stop and look at the surroundings and not where you are going all the time. Almyrida is a very friendly beach resort, the sea is clean and warm.
