Chania Villa Rental Photos and Description

Very private pool area, all amenities, 5 minutes from the beach

Villa Giorgos is a comfortable, peaceful and private retreat on the forested outskirts of the charming traditional village of Gavalohori. The newly built villa has dramatic views of Souda Bay, Aptera Fort, The Akrotiri Peninsula, acres of olive and cypress trees, and the spectacular White Mountains. All of the bedrooms in the main villa, and living areas, lead out to balconies and terraces to enjoy these views. For families or large groups that have members who would like a little more privacy, or are less able to negotiate stairs, guests at Villa Giorgos have the option of renting (for an extra fee) the completely self-contained annex studio on the ground floor. The annex studio has a separate entrance but is only ever rented as one unit with the villa, not separately.

Hidden away on a hillside at the end of a short private track above a ravine, and surrounded on 3 sides by a forest of tall cypress trees, both the villa and the very private pool terrace, are very secluded and yet only 4 minutes away by car from the pretty coastal village of Almyrida with its sandy beaches and many amenities.

Villa Giorgos is modern, comfortably furnished and well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing vacation including satellite TV, DVD and CD players, 3G WIFI internet access for up to 5 devices (air-time cards will need to be purchased), a fully equipped kitchen, a BBQ, and air conditioning units throughout. The a/c units also double up as heaters, and there is central heating for the cooler nights early and late season. The thoughtful Greek owners have supplied large pool/beach towels so that you will not have to bring these with you. The villa has many typically Cretan touches such as local cypress wood for the interior staircase, the doors, the tilt and turn windows which provide a constant through breeze, the shutters and pergolas. The bedroom furniture, including the built-in wardrobes and vanity units, and the kitchen cabinets have also been made from this matching warm wood. Natural local stone has been used in abundance on this lovely property which includes a private parking area. In addition to the annex studio, the villa is partially joined to a mirror image second villa that is unfurnished and permanently un-occupied, thus ensuring your privacy.

The large swimming pool is on its own terrace set above and behind the villa. Surrounded by a low stone wall and tall trees, including cypress, olive and carob, the pool area is very private and peaceful where the only sounds you are likely to hear are the birds singing or the tinkling of bells from nearby sheep. There are many raised flowerbeds which are planted with an abundance of shrubs including magnolia trees, roses, margaritas, different coloured daisies, and hydrangea. The living room and bedrooms all lead out to balconies and terraces which have a choice of sun or shade and are equipped with tables, chairs and umbrellas so that you may relax with a meal or a drink whilst taking in the glorious views down the valley to the sea.

Villa Giorgos has a unique countrified location with no immediate neighbours – just 1 semi occupied villa a few hundred metres away on the on the far side of a ravine.

It should therefore appeal to the escapists amongst you who value comfort and seclusion, whilst being just minutes from beaches, tavernas and shops.

Gavalohori is a pretty traditional village with 4 tavernas, a soulaki cafe, a bakery, and 1 well stocked mini market on the main square. The nearby beach at Almyrida is shallow and safe, has watersports, scuba diving, and is lined with many shops, cafe/bars, tavernas, and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding, and guided walking and coach tours.

A few minutes by car from the villa, there are a variety of archaeological sites and quaint villages, and an interesting selection of small craft centres and museums, including glass blowing in Kokkino Horio, lace makers in Gavalohori, and silk makers in Kalamitsi. For those of you looking for even more activity, the historic town of Chania is only 30 minutes away by car.

With its stunning Venetian harbour, quayside bars and restaurants, what better place to relax and watch the world go by. In the narrow streets behind the harbour you will find tavernas, bars, the famous covered market, and many local shops selling handicrafts, textiles, jewellery and hand made ceramics
