Holiday Rental House
REGULATED AND APPROVED BY THE GREEK TOURIST BOARD MHTE 1354-13-0251 Ideal for a large group or 2 families on holiday together, the house sleeps up to 8 in 4 double/twin bedrooms. There is a very large patio outside, ideal for ball games. Yet our prices for early and late season are competitive with smaller apartments - so this home is affordable even for 2 people. The villa shares the Olive Grove with only 4 other villas (also owned by us) but is not overlooked by them so your privacy is protected. Unusually for Crete, there is at least 60 metres between each house, and separated by colour full private gardens. The olive grove is huge (4.5 acres, 17,000 sq metres) and is fully fenced and gated. The road to Almyrida has only light traffic during the day and occasional vehicles at night, y...REGULATED AND APPROVED BY THE GREEK TOURIST BOARD MHTE 1354-13-0251 Ideal for a large group or 2 families on holiday together, the house sleeps up to 8 in 4 double/twin bedrooms.

Villa Asteria is designed with comfortable double & twin bedrooms. It has a private swimming pool which is GATED to help with child safety. Located in our St Basil Olive Grove, only 3 minutes drive from the beach at Almirida, on the Apokoronas Peninsular in North West Crete (35 minute drive from Chania Airport). Also nearby, only a 12 minute walk away, is the 1000-year old Greek village of Gavalochori with tavernas & shops. WHEELCHAIR ACCESS: only a few steps up to house, (roll-up ramp available). Downstairs 2nd bathroom (professional commode/shower-seat available) and double bedroom with immediate flat access to patio and outside dining area overlooking the pool.

The villa in it's setting of the olive grove, with private pool, is a wonderfully secluded retreat, there are other villas in the grove but the spacing is such that they do not intrude and the driveway isn't shared. The villa itself we found spacious...More

Additional amenities & feature info
Villa Asteria sleeps groups in comfort, with parties of up to 8 people each having their own bed - no need for pull out or camp beds in the living room. When comparing our villas to others you see online you should ask the agent/owner the following questions: How far away in metres is the nearest neighbouring house? ... What separates us? Do I have to share a BBQ or pool with another house? 3) Is there easy access between kitchen and outside dining area? ... Or do I have to climb up and down a flight of stairs?4) Will everyone in my party have a proper bedroom? ... Will some have to sleep on camp beds in the living/dining room? AND if you are a parent with young children: Is the pool easily visible from the kitchen/living room area? ... Are there any safety gates around the pool? The house is also suitable for wheelchair users. There are only a couple of steps to negotiate from the road up to the house. Downstairs double bedroom with shower room and W/C next to it. Each bedroom also has a private balcony with breathtaking views over open countryside (and sea views in the distance from some balconies).

About the neighbourhood
VILLA ASTERIA is situated 2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on north west coast. This is to the east of Souda Bay on the Apokoronas peninsular, about 20 kilometres from the city of Chania and its airport. OUR LOCATION is ideal if you want a quiet family holiday with plenty of sun and sea, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages. Nearby ALMIRIDA VILLAGE has around a dozen restaurants and tavernas, mostly along the seafront, so you can enjoy your meal just a few metres from the waves. We have personally eaten at every restaurant and have never had a poor meal, although perhaps some of the local village wine is a acquired taste! Cooking is invariably home-made Cretan (according to long-hand...
Getting around
We recommend a local car hire company though it is not absolutely neccesary. There is a very good local taxi service.
