Almyrida, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Villa Maria is a beautiful modern villa that enjoys a very private and peaceful setting with incomparable sea views and sunsets, and yet is only a few minutes away from beaches, tavernas, and shops. The villa has been recently built by its charming owners, Yiannis and Maria, with whom we have been working since 1999 at their other rental property. They have utilised their vast knowledge of working with visitors to Crete to ensure that Villa Maria exceeds every expectation that you could have of a holiday villa. Located on a hillside just above the village of Plaka, the villa has absolutely stunning panoramic views of Souda Bay, The Akrotiri Peninsula, the Turkish Castle at Aptera, small villages and The White Mountains which are snow capped for 6 months a year. Despite the rural location surrounded by a natural rocky landscape covered in... Read more

Additional amenities & feature info
Villa Maria has been painted a pretty pale buttermilk colour and has been furnished throughout to a very high standard. The décor has fun features such as the fireplace or an occasional wall painted in a bright or contrasting colour, and this combines perfectly with the stylish furniture which includes comfortable cream leather couches, a wood and iron dining table that is topped with green glass and has matching chairs with cream leather seats, and a king size dark wood bed and matching bedside cabinets in the double bedroom.

About the neighbourhood
The main square in Plaka is only 1.3km from Villa Maria and is still very much the focal point of village life. There are lovely shady mulberry trees under which the locals sit to watch the world go by whilst enjoying a delicious meal or even just an ice cold frappe. Plaka was one of the original village sets for the film “Zorba the Greek” and it still has quaint whitewashed houses and narrow streets leading off from the square. The modern outskirts of the village have expanded recently as have the facilities, which now include 6 tavernas, 2 well stocked mini markets, an Italian restaurant, a hair dresser, and 7 cafes. <BR><BR>The lovely village of Almyrida is only 2.5km from Villa Maria, and is built around a pretty crescent shaped sandy beach, with a small fishing harbour at... more
