Beautiful villa with amazing views
The villa was excellent just a few minor things that could be improved. The swimming pool was quite cold initially but ok once in.
The location was just what we wanted nice and quiet but within east reach of all facilities. Jimmy who looked after the villa could not of been more helpful Almyrida is a great resort We will definitely use HomeAway again
Just got back from a fantastic stay in this wonderful villa. The views are spectactular and it is lovely and peaceful. The villa is private as is the pool, it has a beautiful veranda balcony overlooking the town and the bay. The villa is in very good condition and is well looked after, it is air conditioned throughout, the pool is of a good length and is in good condition, the rooms are of a good size and would easily accomodate 8 people, the kitchen is well stocked and functional. We loved this place and Wendy the owner was very helpful in booking it and with advice on how to get there etc. Had a really comfortable and relaxing ten days and would definitely return in the future.
Just returned from a wonderful family holiday to this villa.
The views were spectacular from every angle - sea and mountains.
The position was very private and peaceful but easy to walk down into the town, although a taxi back in the evenings was welcome!
We didn't find it necessary to hire a car, especially as a bus ran into Chania every day, and taxis were easy to find.
The villa is very well equipped, everything you could possibly need, all good quality, and very clean.
I would definitely return.
A 3 minutes drive or 10 minutes walk down the hill takes you to the blue flagged beach resort of Almyrida. The gentle sloping beach makes it very safe for children. More active holiday makers can make use of the windsurfing school or other boating pursuits. Kalives is a 7 min drive and is slightly larger then Almyrida with 2 big stretches of beaches. The nearby picturestique cove is ideal for snorkelling, diving or just jumping in!
Car hire is not essential. Bike hire is available at Almyrida.
