This lovely villa is set only 4 minutes walk to the centre of the Almirida village where all amenities can be found such as taverns, cafes, bars and a couple of mini markets, as well as the incredible sandy beach of Almirida. It comprises 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a large open-plan living-dining area and a fully equipped kitchen, two spacious balconies for you to enjoy the breathtaking views and a spacious private swimming pool (7m x 4m, 1,4 m deep).
Built over a small cliff overlooking the picturesque bay of Almyrida, the villa is set a level higher than the street, adding to privacy as well as to the views. The outside area is paved with local stone and has flower beds planted with a variety of aromatic local herbs such as thyme, marjoram, oregano, bay laurel, peppermint, jasmine etc. that surround the spacious pool with mesmerising scents. A number of sun loungers with umbrellas will refresh you and offer you shade by the pool during the long sunny hours.
Open balconies, charming arches, traditional wooden windows, shades and pergolas give the house its Cretan colour and character. From the villa's spacious balcony you can enjoy views to Almyrida, the bay, the green hills covered with olive-trees, extending to the impressive White Mountains. The evening sun offers a magnificent spectacle as it sets behind the hills of Chania.
In the villa or just a short walk away you can find everything you ask for a perfect holiday in Chania: Privacy, highest standard, ample space, walking distance to the beach, tavernas and amenities, air-conditioning, and a private, spacious swimming pool.
On the ground floor, there are 3 bedrooms: one with a double bed (160X200cm), and two with twins (each 90X200). The twin beds can be pushed together to form a double bed without leaving a gap between the mattresses. In each bedroom, there is a floor-to-ceiling built-in white wardrobe, as well as bedside tables. The bedrooms are all equipped with air-conditioning units that also have a heating function, that might be needed very early or very late in the season. One of the twin bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower. A second bathroom, shared by the guests of the other two rooms, has a full-size bathtub. The bathrooms are elegantly tiled, with large mirrors and washbasins, which lie on tiled vanity shelves.
A wide staircase, made of local stone, leads to the upper floor with the kitchen and the living-dining area. Under an impressive 6m high white wooden roof you will find the conveniently spacious kitchen. The cupboards and shelves are hand-crafted and reflect the traditional style. The kitchen is equipped with high-quality appliances, including everything from a toaster to a dishwasher. Two doors lead to the large front balcony, with a big table, chairs and the BBQ.
On the other side of the upper floor, there is a dining table and the living-room area with the fire-place. A comfortable couch is large enough for all the guests and, if needed, two extra guests can sleep there. Another extra sleeping place is provided as a BoConcept folding bed. You can enjoy films or music from a Canton 5 1 surround system, including a TV, a DVD/MP3 player as well as a satellite receiver. The room opens to a second balcony with magnificent views of the whole Apokoronas district, the mountains, the bay of Souda, the smaller bay of Almyrida, the Cretan sea and, in the evenings, the mesmerising spectacle of the setting sun.
