Almyrida, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Set in the hills above the beachside town of Almyrida, between the Cretan villages of Gavalochori and Xerosterni, Villa Oleander is a delightful, spacious, fully air conditioned villa, with private swimming pool and terrace, and views over the White Mountains.

In private grounds, the villa is perfect for couples, families, or groups seeking a villa away from the crowds without immediate neighbours, yet is only 10 minutes by car from beaches, watersports, bars and restaurants, with a mini-market both within walking distance.

About the neighbourhood
The local (nearest) shops are situated in Gavalochori (5 minutes drive) and Almyrida (8 minutes drive).

At Almyrida, you will find shops, tavernas, bars, gift shops and supermarkets as well as the excellent Blue Flag beaches. There are also various family activities such as water sports and ten pin bowling.

The villa is only a short drive away from Chania (pronounced Hania), which was once the islands capital. It has a famous Venetian harbour with quayside bars and tavernas and behind the harbour you can wander through the Ol...
