Almirida Villa Rental Photos and Description

Quiet location, short walk to beach, shops, tavernas ... car not essential

Only 3 minutes drive from the beach, this villa is located in our private olive grove between the villages of Almirida and Gavalochori. You can walk to the restaurants/minimarkets of Gavalochori in 12 minutes. The house is surrounded by trees and shrubs and is not overlooked because the nearest other villa is over 200 feet (60 metres) away. Ideal for a couple, or families up to 5, there is a choice of double or twin bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is lots of internal and external space with sheltered terraces for outside dining close to the private pool on the large sun patio. Suitable for wheelchair users or limited mobility - a few steps but has downstairs bedroom and bathroom. House Layout: Wide patio doors connect the spacious outside areas to the light and airy open-plan kitchen. ‘Al-fresco’ meals are easy because there are no stairs to negotiate from the kitchen. CAR NOT ESSENTIAL - beach and villages all within walking distance.

FACILITIES CLOSE BY: Swimming in nearby sandy beach of Almirida. SCUBA/Snorkelling in Chania/Almirida. Windsurfing school in Almirida. Walking galore! Easy tracks straight from the door. Spectacular countryside with breathtaking views of White Mountains from villa & all bedroom terraces. Sea Fishing - tackle shop in nearby Kalives. The White Mountains dominate the area and provide a dramatic backdrop to the sandy beaches at Almirida, Kalives and Georgeoupolis.

The large bay that makes up the seaside resorts of Almirida and Kalives has many separate, safe, sandy beaches, usually with full facilities. Almirida, is a thriving seaside resort with a windsurfing school and tavernas and bars lining the sea front. There are a couple of mini-markets, a bakery, patisserie, a wine shop and newsagents. Mountain bikes can be hired and there is also a small taxi rank. There is a bus service to Kalives and Chania.

SHOPPING: Nearest big town is Kalives, an all year-roiund destination. In addition to the beaches, tavernas, bars and tourist shops there are local shops plus a good-sized supermarket. Banking, post office and petrol station are available. City of Chania - a cosmopolitan city voted the most beautiful on Crete. With the White Mountains as a backdrop, its Venetian harbour, museums, fascinating indoor market and an old quarter of narrow streets packed with interesting shops, Chania offers something for most visitors. It is a vibrant place steeped in Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish history. The harbour area is a great place to sit and watch the world go by at one of the sea-front tavernas.

GOOGLE EARTH: Please note that Google Earth photos for Crete in our region

are out of date (taken in 2003/4). This is 12 months before the villas

were built so all you will see is an empty olive grove! Please look at our

olive picking website to see photos of the villas and location.

About John Dunn

Hi there We are owners Marcus Milton and John Dunn. Together with our two families, we co-own and manage our estate of 5.5 acres of olive grove in North West Crete. On this land we have built 4 spacious rental villas, each with private pools. With more than 200 trees olive trees on site we also harvest the oil and bring back to the UK the best fresh olive oil you are likely to have tasted.

John Dunn purchased this villa in 2005

Why John Dunn chose Almirida

As we own the whole plot, we have been able to control the building of these houses so that they are completely detached and not immediately overlooked. We feel this is very important to the comfort and ambiance of our guests who do not want to feel as though they are living on top of other villas!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Helios...it was a very enjoyable place to have a holiday and we would definitely consider spending time in your Villa(s) again.

Villa Angelos - wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a wonderful stay in Villa Angelos in Crete! The villa was beautiful, in a great location and very well-appointed. All the information provided before and during our visit was extremely useful. The driving advice and directions from Chania were very helpful and also the tips for restaurants were very good. We had two kids with us (Rasmus, 9 and Simon, 7 years) and their comment: This was the best summer house we ever had! We all enjoyed our "own" pool and had much fun during the week.

Excellent

  • 4 of 5
We ( eight of us) had an excellent week staying at the Villa Angelos. (Four double rooms!) The villa was clean and had everything we required with regard to cutlery, table ware, glasses, bedding etc. We did not get round to using the BBQ or in fact cooking having decided to eat out at local bars recommended by the proprietor. The swimming pool and surrounds were clean and much appreciated due to the very hot weather experienced. I would not hesitate in recommending this villa for its position close to local amenities.

Beautiful Villa, Amazing View.

  • 4 of 5
Very impressed with this villa, a lot bigger than expected, the photos didn't do it justice. The pool is a good size with ample sunbathing areas and good shady areas if you should need it. We really enjoyed our stay here, the local village had a good couple of restuarants, but for more nightlife Almyrida has more to offer, ideally you would need a car, or if you don't mind walking, it's half hour downhill, you can always get a taxi back. Loved this place, would recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: A very good point about the taxis. There is a very good local taxi service and it is just a few minutes by taxi back to the house

Super location; relaxing villa

  • 4 of 5
Clean, attractive villa with most things necessary for a relaxing stay. The layout was perfect, with pool and veranda which can be seen from kitchen & living area. Shame there was only the one working parasol - made it difficult for all the family to relax by the pool comfortably. Teenage sons were happy there was a TV, but a little disappointed that the only English speaking satellite TV channel was Fox TV.
The kitchen was cosy, and I liked the addition of ice cube bags! However, if an even larger group were staying, I would expect to see more kitchen equipment, including a larger pan, and some big ovenproof dishes.
The pre-stay customer service provided by the owners was excellent, but, on arrival, there was no welcome pack that one might normally expect. Luckily, we arrived early enough in the day to collect some necessities (water, milk, tea, etc). But that would have been a nice touch.
The villa was in an ideal location, near the villages of Almyrida & Gavalochori (10mins walk without small child; 45 mins with!), where we found a wonderful kafenion (Monica's), which served delicious, proper, fresh, "home-cooked" greek cuisine.
Would certainly recommend the villa to others.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the Review. The parasol has been repaired as soon as we noticed it with chunky self-locking bolts to secure the fabric to the arms, so it is now stronger than new. Regarding the TV, there should be half a dozen TV stations in English which are coming from Dubai, with latest Holywood films in English though subtitles in Arabic, and several news channels including BBC World, CNN etc, I will have a word with our manager and check to see if the TV needs retuning - it was certainly working at the start of the season, as I tuned it myself. With the Welcome pack, we make this optional which you can reserve at the time of booking - not everyone needs this service. Glad you enjoyed the local tavernas, and Monica's is a personal favourite of ours.

Absolutely awesome!

  • 5 of 5
What an absolutely stunning holiday and experience! Dealing with John over the initial booking was a pleasure and all the finer details were completely catered for from start to finish. The villa was exceptional and set in the most stunning countryside. Very spacious, comfortable, clean, simply a home from home! We walked around 50k during our stay as the views were breath taking and you crave more with each step! The local Cretans were so very friendly which allowed us to emerge ourselves in to their culture, sadly if but only for a week!
The butcher in Almyrida was a great guy and higly recommend the pastry cafe bar on the beach front! You were always given a genuine 'yassas' everywhere you went which has given us such beautiful memories!
Sherry and I would both like to thank you John and your superb team out there for giving us a delightful holiday and showing us a most pleasurable time.

Chris and Sherry.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5
The Villa is well located - within 15 minute walk of a village and 5 min drive to a larger town on the coast. The house is well designed with excellent outside eating area and a terrific swimming pool.

The owner was prompt and extremely helpful in answering several enquiries. The directions from Chania airport provided by the owner were terrific, as without an understanding of the greek alphabet , navigating can be challenging.

The cost for the Villa was very reasonable and I highly recommend staying there

Car: recommended

We are in a quiet location, just outside the village, close enough to enjoy the facilities of tavernas, bars, fresh bakery and minimarket - only a 12 mninute walk away, The sea (and safe, sandy beach, plus more restaurants and shops) is just over 2 km away which takes little over half an hour to walk. Although we recommend a car especially if you have small children, it is not necessary and many of our guests prefer to take a taxi from the airport, use local taxis, hire bicycles, and walk. The area is ideal for keen swimmers, walkers and cyclists - very spectacular scenery - very similar to the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire (England) but by the sea and a lot warmer!
