We would 100% recommend staying at Aoria Estate. The villa is perfect for a group of 6.
Vangelis and Elpida are excellent hosts. Before the stay I had a lot of questions and they always responded very quickly and met us on the main road to help us find the villa. They also left us bottles of their own wine and raki, and some fresh bread and fruit.
The villa and grounds are stunning. The pool and surrounding area is so relaxing, we spent most days sitting around there. The other common areas are also fantastic and from the sun deck there is a great view of the sunset.
The kitchen has everything that you need and there is a BBQ where we did a lot of cooking. There is also a wood-fired pizza oven which we didn't use.
The bedrooms are large and very comfortable, the bathrooms are also lovely and new. We didn't spend much time in the living room as the weather was so nice we spent most of our time outside.
Kalyves is a short drive away and has supermarkets with everything you need and there are restaurants and bars there - although we didn't really go there because the villa was too nice to leave. We will definitely go back again.
I stayed in Aoria with my friends shortly while we were visiting Chania for a wedding. The villa is a great value for money and we were very positively surprised with the comfort and elegance of the house. The view was awesome too! I'll try to go back with my girlfriend next time as it was a great place to relax and get away from everything.
Aoria was an amazing villa and we really enjoyed our stay there. The house was very comfy and children friendly and the view was truly stress relieving. The garden was ideal for our children to play and allow adults to enjoy the terrace and front yard over raki, drinks and good Cretan food. The house itself gave out an artistic and traditional atmosphere, while it included everything that we needed. The hosts were very helpfull and friendly! We will definitely come back at Aoria for our next vacation in Crete.
I spent a few days with a group of friends at Aoria. We just wanted to relax and travel around the villages of Chania with our car.
Aoria a is a lovely place sitting in the breathtaking views of Armeni.
The villa was spotlessly clean,tastefully decorated and with all the comforts we required.
Having our breakfast in the sunlit garden and enjoying the dusk over a wine in the large terrace are the most relaxing memories I'll be taking with me.
We visited many beautiful villages around with our car and the trip to Chania was very short.
Evangelos and Elpida were super helpful and friendly. Apart from ensuring we had everything we needed they surprised us with an amazing barbeque!!
I highly recommend the experience at Aoria!
