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, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages.

We do think we have a great location. Private and quiet but not remote from the beach and local restaurants and bars

Thank you John for the lovely review. We have now completed the internal decorations and you will be able to see the results online very soon.

This is a very peaceful/Beautiful place with the only background noise being the crickets or the occasional car or goats passing, Just far enough away from the crowds but equally close enough to be involved if you wanted to. Would recommend, especially for families

About the neighbourhood
2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on Cretes 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-handed down family recip...
Getting around
We would recommend a hire car, though this is not strictly necessary, there is a good local taxi service.
