Further comments about the area:

The villa is located on a hillside in the village of Gavalochori in West Crete. Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokoron region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Its location is 25 km east of Chania which takes about 20 minutes drive along the National Road. Gavalochori is an old historical village with approximately 500 residents which has retained its color and way of life. Several family run tavernas offer the visitor tasty dishes of Cretan cuisine. Near the small village square and within walking distance from the villa there is a coffee shop, a bakery, a mini mart, two tavernas and the Folk Art Museum. The surrounding area has several beautiful nature paths for walking or biking which lead either towards the sea or towards the White mountains. The coastal village of Almirida is less than 10 minutes driving distance. In Almirida you may find all basic facilities, such as a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, ATM, gas station and taxi service. It has a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear water and a shallow section particularly suitable for small kids. This Blue Flag rated beach is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and sea sports services. There are several sea side tavernas and bars offering exquisite sea food and night entertainment. The large town of Chania of course offers the visitor a wider range of choices for shopping, dining and night life mostly centered around the old Venetian port. Some interesting monuments in Chania town are the covered Municipal Market, the Venetian fortifications, the Egyptian Lighthouse, the Synagogue, the Fortress of Firkas, the Mosque of Giali Tzamisi, the Arsenals, and the Othrodox Cathedral.

The villa can be used as a base for visiting several points of interest in the area:

*****AMAZING VILLA******

Firstly we would like to congratulate Christos (The owner) on how stunningly perfect his villas are
The villa is one of five set in a stunning location with breathtaking views. Inside and out these villas are more than 5***.The villas and pools are all very private and the size of these villas means you're not on top of each other. BBQ's in the evening watching the sun go down with the views is just heaven. The village is a nice little village with friendly people and just a little drive away is a town with a lovely beach restaurants and bars.
The housekeeper is a really nice lady who is more than happy to help. We only stayed for a week and were really sad to go. Next year we will be booking for 2 weeks.
We had an amazing holiday and we would recommend these villas.
Thanks so much for making this holiday so special.
Can't wait till next year!

Super Villa for a relaxed holiday!

We stayed with 5 friends in this villa from 30/5 tilll 6/6 2010 and we had a great time. The villa is even more stunning in real life with comfort and luxury on the in - and outside. The housekeeping from Froso was excellent and effecient. Any help you need is in good hands with her. The view is breathtaking and seems to change every minute as the sun and clouds paint a different picture endlessly. The pool is big, clean and very inviting. The rooms have very good beds and the yacuzzi is wonderful.
We enjoyed many meals outside on the veranda and the gas BBQ works great. Walking down the hill every morning to the bakery is a pleasure and the beach with good seaside dining is nearby. The bigger town of Chania is just half an hour drive away and offers quality shops, but be aware of the siesta opening hours.
We are very excited about this villa and have plans on staying here again. Thank you Froso and Christos for your service and kindness!

Visited crete in late may for two weeks and stayed at villa Athina with my husband. The villa nor the service did not disappoint in any way.Immaculate, very spacious and with excellent layout.Our 7th visit to Crete in six years and our best, the local village and the residents made us fall back in love with Crete the way it did 20 years ago when we lived and met there.would highly recommend eating out locally, beautiful tavernas in village,and also driving around to explore off the beaten track.Beautiful beach in Almerida with fabulous fish tavernas.Best moments by far watching the sunset with only the sounds of the goat bells for company and the snow capped{just} mountains in the distance. thank you Christos and everyone in Gavalochori for two weeks we do not want to forget.Hope to return later this year.

Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokorona region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Gavalochori is an old historical village with approximately 500 residents. It is a typical Cretan village with a small square where a coffee shop, a bakery, a mini mart, two tavernas and other convenient stores can be found. Several narrow streets branch off its centre and one could wander through several interesting sections of this officially protected village. Stone built houses with lovely backyards full of colourful flowers can be found. A lot of interesting buildings can be seen, such as the 18th century two room, arched olive oil press, the temples of Panagia and Agios Sergios, the old school, and the historical folk art museum. Within a short distance (5km) from tranquil Gavalochori one can drive to Almirida, a picturesque coastal village. You may dine there in one of several seaside tavernas or relax sipping your drink by a bar during sunset.
