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. Variety is everywhere. Nightlife - there are several quite trendy bars open until silly hours, and there is often a disco in Niki bar on a Sunday night. You can also expect impromptu musicians to turn up at an...
Getting around
A car hire is recommended, though not strictly necessary. There is a good local taxi service in Almyrida.
