About the neighbourhood
Kera Villa is just one of a few properties which stands on a headland (about 20m directly above the sea and an unspoilt small beach) between Kalyves and Almerida. Both of these places have blue flag beaches with plenty of seaside tavernas, cafés and a wide range of shops and car rental firms. Kalyves is larger and has its own bank and internet store for those who want to purchase a local SIM card. Almerida has a diving school and provides other opportunities for water sports.

Our property is reached by a lane that ends just beyond our driveway when it then becomes a footpath. This footpath provides a mainly coastal pathway between Kalyves and Almerida which enables guests to walk into either place. The views are stunning for walkers but there are some steep uphill stretches which mea...

How to get there
There are direct flights to Chania ( our nearest airport ) or to Heraklion from many UK and EU airports mainly between May to October. In addition Aegean airlines (2017 European Award winning company) flies at least twice a day from London to Athens and then onward to Chania or Heraklion. Athens is served by many airlines and is certainly worth a stopover with an excellent clean metro linking the airport to the city and many very good hotels located close to the Parthenon and the amazing new Acropolis museum. There are also regular ferries from Mainland Greece to Chania or you could even go island hopping with Santorini being a very popular place to stop en-route to/from Crete.
