Almirida Villa Rental Photos and Description
Very Spacious and Beautiful Hideaway Villa with Panoramic Sea and Mountain Views
Villa Azure is an impressive modern villa with a large 52m2 infinity pool set on a hillside terrace in what we believe to be the most attractive and private location in the Chania area. As the name suggests, Villa Azure has outstanding views over the sparkling blue seas of Souda Bay to the north, and rich green valleys of olive trees and vineyards to the spectacular White Mountains in the south. Tucked away at the end of an unmade road, and hidden by olive, cypress and pine trees, Villa Azure is ideal for those seeking a luxurious hideaway that is nevertheless only a short distance from the sandy beaches, waterfront tavernas, and many amenities that the pretty seaside resorts of Almyrida and Kalives have to offer.
Villa Azure has quality furnishings and the comfortable feel of a well-equipped and very spacious home. In order to ensure total peace and privacy for each guest, none of the bedrooms share adjoining walls but every bedroom has its own en-suite shower room and A/C unit.
