Almirida Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, private pool, sea views

Villa Kallisto, its brazen clean lines and uncluttered grey facades making a bold statement of modern architecture yet sitting surprisingly at ease amongst the olive trees. Far removed from ancient Cretan dwellings, the owners commissioned their new villa to showcase the style and taste of a new age and guests staying here will be lucky enough to discover the ideas behind the design.

It boast 3 suite style bedrooms each with their own shower room, stunning first floor open plan living area with comfy sofa's leading onto the balcony with panoramic sea views. sumptuous kitchen, sparkling pool and lush gardens complete this perfect Villa.

A 2 mins drive (or 25 mins walk) : Up the quiet lane that leads away from the lovely sandy cove around which the village of Almirida is strung, brings you to Villa Kallisto, its brazen clean lines and uncluttered grey facades making a bold statement of modern architecture yet sitting surprisingly at ease amongst the olive trees. Far removed from ancient Cretan dwellings, the owners commissioned their new villa to showcase the style and taste of a new age and guests staying here will be lucky enough to discover the ideas behind the design.

On arrival you will immediately begin to appreciate the concept of the villa as, with all three bedrooms on the ground floor, it requires minimal effort to unload your luggage and hang holiday clothes in the spacious wardrobes. Sliding glass doors open from each 'boutique hotel' inspired bedroom onto a patio by the pool area perfect for that first dip. All 3 spacious bedrooms (two double and twin) have sleek spa inspired en-suite shower rooms.

Stairs lead to the upper floor : Where the living space profits from its position at the top of the house for maximum impact of breathtaking panoramic views over Souda Bay and the commanding White Mountains. Moving around, sitting or standing, each intriguingly placed window frames a different snapshot of a kaleidoscope of views. This is a light and uncluttered sociable space to enjoy whether cooking; dining or just 'chilling out' (and on that subject, the air conditioning is included in the price). Equipped with flat screen satellite TV, DVD Player and music system and furnished with bespoke furniture - amazing suede corner sofa, wood and glass dining table and leather covered dining chairs - the living area simply exudes style. Clean modern lines in the kitchen offer all that you might expect from a Villa of this caliber - large fridge freezer, electric fan oven, hob, dishwasher and cappuccino- espresso machine.

Generous folding glass doors: Open onto a wide dual aspect terrace furnished for open air dining and overlooking the 5000sq m of olive groves in which Villa Kallisto is set and the exemplary 11.5m x 5m mineral spa water pool.

Just one link with the past has been forged with Villa Kallisto - translated from ancient Greek, Kallisto means Most Beautiful and each visitor will return home with their own opinion of whether this Villa was named for its architecture, furnishings or views.

There is a purpose built barbecue and outside dining furniture near to the pool which has roman steps leading into it and an overall depth of 1.50m.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We have just spent 2 weeks at the Villa Kallisto and we didn't want to come home. The villa is gorgeous, the swimming pool is fantastic, the location is great, the views and sunsets are amazing, Pennie the owner is the best we've come across and the weather was wonderful.

The villa is a 25 minute leisurely walk downhill to Almerida (you can get back in 25 minutes but it's uphill and definately requires more effort!) There are quite a few tavernas (all on the beach giving you a perfect view of the bay whilst getting your toes sandy if you wish), a couple of bakers, 4 mini supermarkets, lovely sandy beach, ATM and generally everything you need. It is not a place to go if you're looking for a wild nightlife but it is perfect for families and chilling in the most blissful way. "

Car: recommended

22 km east of Chania, the pretty little seaside village of Almerida has two gently shelving sandy beaches fringed by sleepy waterside tavernas as well as a small fishing harbor and little rocky coves, with the sea a marvelous melange of colors from deep aquamarine to a pastel turquoise. A decade ago Almirida was just a fishing village and a weekend watering hole for local Greeks from Chania. Times change of course and Almirida has slowly grown into a small resort with a number of villas, apartments and quite a few hotels. Curiously enough though, the Greeks still come at weekends, the fishermen still fish and the waterside tavernas still have a laid back unhurried atmosphere where time is of no consequence and you can sit for hours lingering over a meal.
