We stayed for six days in October at this beautiful villa just outside Chainia! It was a perfect location.. just 15 minutes from the city center but far enough away to avoid the hustle bustle. Beautiful beach just a short drive away with lots of tavernas!
The Villa has two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen has all the basics ... Beautiful private pool with lots of outdoor seating. I don't think we sat in the living room but one time in our 6 day stay!
The owners live next-door and are just delightful. They are available to you whenever you need anything! Our last evening they cooked fresh fish for dinner for us.
My only negative comment are the beds ... they were not soft ... very firm... but we find this to be true in Greece almost everywhere we go. Very few hotels or villas have comfortable bedding.
It is perfectly located 20min from Chania, just above a very nice, secluded, sandy each which you can reach within 7-10min walking. Fully equiped (even a moulinex food processor, sharp knives, salt & pepper, welcoming chilled wine and refreshments and a water cooler in the kitchen). There were even some band-aids in the bathroom (which we needed after trekking the Samaria gorge). Very nice gardens and balconies with shadowy spaces for every hour of the day. Speedy internet -which prooved usefull for our 4 teenagers: Yes, we were 6 and there was enough room for all. The nearest supermarket is 10min by car and some food delivery is also available.
The location is perfect. The villa has everything required for a wonderful holiday. The pool is gorgeous and we loved having lunch on the terrace overlooking the pool. We walked to Almyrida for breakfast by the sea, it was a great start to the day and the walk was under 30 minutes from the villa. Lemon trees are in the garden with lemons for the gin and tonic!
We had a most comfortable and enjoyable week in this villa. The location was very convenient and the view lovely. The villa is very modern, spacious and clean. The owners made us feel most welcome and could not do enough to ensure that our stay was a good one. The layout worked well for our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers). The only downside to the villa is that it is located on the road that links Kalyves and Almyrida which is fairly busy at certain times of the day, so there is some road noise. This did not impact our enjoyment of our stay.
