LOVELY 3 BDRM STONE VILLA W/ PRIVATE INFINITY POOL & AMAZING VIEWS NR THE BEACH

Almirida Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sea And Mountain Views. Every Amenity Incl. Full A/C. Walk To Beach & Tavernas.

Villa Anais is a charming stone villa that is dramatically perched on the top of a hill with absolutely spectacular views of Souda Bay, the Akrotiri Peninsula, The White Mountains and the beach village of Almyrida. The clever design of the villa ensures that all of the bedrooms and the living area lead out onto the balconies and terraces which take in these breathtaking views, with a choice of sun or shade. The elevated position ensures that the villa is often blessed in the summer by cooling breezes that come in off the sea. At night-time, the villa and pool terrace are romantically illuminated and the lights of passing fishing boats and the evening ferry on its way to Athens twinkle from the bay. This beautiful rural setting belies the fact that Villa Anais is only 1km from the wonderful sandy beaches which hold the coveted blue flag for cleanliness, a good choice of amenities and shops, and the pretty seaside tavernas and cafes in Almyrida.

The thoughtful French owners have spent a considerable amount of time creating a very attractive and comfortable home with stylish furnishings. In order to make your stay at Villa Anais completely stress free, traditional features such as honey-blonde stone walls, pillars and arches, and beamed ceilings, pergolas, doors and windows made from fragrant local cypress wood, blend effortlessly with every possible modern comfort including: a fully fitted kitchen with stainless steel appliances such as a ceramic hob, built-in oven, a large fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a microwave oven, a kettle, a coffee maker, and a toaster: fully tiled bathrooms (one equipped with a washing machine); satellite TV, DVD player, WIFI internet access (top-up cards for air-time will need to be purchased), and mosquito screens and air-conditioning units in the bedrooms. For the cooler nights at the start and end of the season the a/c units double up as heaters and there is a fire place and full central heating (though heating oil is not included in the rental price).

Despite the villa’s beautiful and cool interiors, you will probably want to spend most of your time relaxing outside on one of the outdoor balconies, or on the pool terrace whilst taking in the panoramic sea views. The main terrace is dominated by the infinity pool and a poolside cabana that features a kitchenette and a traditional barbeque that is sure to be the centre of culinary activity for al-fresco dining. Long hot summer days spent relaxing in the sun and cooling off in the pool conclude perfectly with glorious sunsets, a glass of chilled wine from the nearby winery, and the delightful aroma of freshly caught fish sizzling away on the barbeque. The 1000m2 property has been landscaped around the villa to provide ample private parking, whilst the rest of the property has been left completely natural with rocks, olive, carob and almond trees. A small selection of flowerbeds have been planted with colourful oleandar, fragrant lavender, Callistemon (bottlebrush) bushes, mesmembryanthum, cacti, and Washingtonian palms.

As hard as it may be to drag yourselves away from the calming ambience at Villa Anais, the surrounding area has a host of incredible sites. An attractive option for those of you who do not want to cook but would like to have a drink with your evening meal is a leisurely stroll of 1km that brings you to the laid back village of Almyrida which has something for everyone. The whole family will want to window shop at the gift and jewellery shops and then dine on appetizing and very fresh local cuisine whilst sitting next to the crystal clear turquoise sea. The more active members of the family may like to windsurf, kayak, sail, or scuba dive during the day, or stay out late whilst enjoying the delicious cocktails and good music at the local cafes. The walk to the village is downhill on the way there and mostly uphill on the return journey - the views do come at a price but you may not notice if you have had a glass or two with dinner! Some of you may prefer to take a taxi back home but do be aware that they are not a cheap option.

Villa Anais is ideal for those wanting to stay in an enchanting stone villa with unrivalled views and a and a relaxing setting with easy access to beaches, shops and tavernas.

VERY GOOD

  • 4 of 5
Excellent location for a relaxing holiday, having visited several places on island felt that this was best resort . Villa had amazing views over bay and mountains to the west.
Hire car essential for this villa, last bit of driveway leading to villa is very steep.
Villa and facilities very good, all local staff 1st class as were the local restaurants.

Car: recommended

The heart of the village of Almyrida is only 1km from Villa Anais, and is built around a pretty crescent shaped sandy beach, with a small fishing harbour at the eastern end. The beach is very shallow and safe, which is good news if you have children or are not a strong swimmer.

Lining the beach are 7 excellent tavernas, 9 café/bars, 2 bakeries, 2 jewellery shops, 5 mini-markets, 3 gift shops, a butcher's shop, an off-license, a pharmacy, and an organic fruit and vegetable shop with a deli counter. Also in Almyrida there is a scuba diving office, a water sports centre which rents out kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans, and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding and organised walking and coach tours.

A few minutes by car from Villa Anais, there are a huge variety of archaeological sites and traditional villages with wonderful tavernas. There is also 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 35 minutes away by car.
