VILLA, PRIVATE POOL + CHILD SAFETY GATES, SLEEPS 6-9, WHEELCHAIR RAMP (ASTERIA)

Almirida Villa Rental Photos and Description

Private location, not overlooked, close to beach, villages & good restaurants

* * * Features private gated swimming pool for child safety * * *

The villa sleeps up to 8 adults in 4 double/twin bedrooms and has a private swimming pool. Located in the olive grove of Agios Vassillis, it is only a 3 minute drive from the beach at Almyrida, on the Apokoronas peninsular in north west crete (30 minute drive from Chania airport). Also nearby, only a 10 minute walk away, is the 1000-year old Greek village of Gavalochori with Tavernas. ......Wheelchair users: one double bedroom downstairs, next to downstairs w/c shower-room - shower-seat & commode available. Roll-up ramp available....The road to Almyrida has only light traffic during the day and occasional vehicles at night, yet you are never far from civilization and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages. Car not necessary but we do advise if you have wheelchairs or child buggies to push!

Villa has gated private pool for child safety: the perimeter of the patio where the private swimming pool is located is fully fenced and gated. If you are a parent of young children this will be a great help in controlling access to the pool - and much peace of mind!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Dear John

We had a great time, could not have been better. Everyone loved St Basil's. Anastasia and Roula were incredibly helpful. Monica's was a favourite haunt. I hope we did not cause too much chaos.

Hello. 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 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

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!

NOVEL FUN WORKING HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
The owners are suppliers of quality Saint Basil olive oil. They offer working holidays to harvest their olives. This was great fun. They provided Cretan food for lunch and went with us to a variety of great value restaurants in the evening. We watched the olive pressing process and tasted the fruits of our labour. Lots to see on the Island. A very enjoyable holiday.

As can be seen the villa is built in a summer holiday style and as such would be a good place to stay in summer. The weather, whilst warm and pleasant, was not for sunbathing (November) and so we used the villa simply as a place to rest and sleep after work. It was fine for that having everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Neil was a much valued olive picking guest at the last harvest and really contributed to a great harvest and holiday for our guests. He worked to sunbath but we all enjoyed the sun.

VILLA ASTERIA 11/09/2009- 25/09/2009

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful holiday in Villa Asteria.

The Villa was ideal, in a quiet location with a fantastic view of the White mountains.

Although the property can sleep up to eight people it did not feel too big for just the two of us.

We loved spending lazy days lying by the pool which had a large sun deck which was in the sun from 8am to 7pm.

We did manage to drag ourselves away to do a bit of exploring and found Crete to be a beautiful Island.

The drive to Elafonisi Beach and Millia recommended by our local Autoclub reps were wonderfully scenic and ended in wonderful lunches.

We also enjoyed the Tavernas of Gavalochori which we visited regularly for food and a Mythos or two.
