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.

Excellent luxurious villa in nice cozy village

  • 5 of 5
We rented this excellent villa for a week and had a superb time.
We where greeted by the nice lady Froso, who showed us the house etc.
She came by every day to clean and make sure all was in prestine condition.
The villa seemed brand new and the terrasse and pool where perfect for us and the children.
Overall the villa and service was all we could hope for and we are already planning to go back next year.

Better than you could imagine

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in villa Alkyoni for a week this past August (of 08) - the villa is really beautiful and luxurious - I think it is actually nicer than it looks in all the pictures. We were two families travelling together and there was plenty of room - the layout is excellent. The location is lovely - very secluded. Gavalohori is a quaint little town and you are near beaches and other towns that offer restaurants and shopping. The owner was very diligent about trying to remedy a few problems that we had (when we stayed the villa was really new) - we had a plumbing problem with one of the bathrooms and a problem with the air conditioning in one of the master bedrooms. He tried to have all things fixed very quickly and even left us two bottles of nice wine as a way of making up for the inconvenience. The caretaker/helper is very lovely - recommending restaurants and shopping areas and answering questions, giving directions, as well as cleaning. The pool is gorgeous - really huge and the area around the pool is so well layed out and beautifully decorated with flowering plants and comfortable and plentiful outfoor furniture There is ample and comfortable space for dining alfresco (which we did every mornig and several evenings). Beds are comfortable enough. Lighting is slightly dimmer than I would have preferred in the bathrooms and bedrooms. We didn't get any toilettries, no dish soap, no dishwasher soap, no salt or pepper - it seemed a little weird, but not that big a deal. There were however really nice cozy robes. Lots of tvs, lots of dishes. Very comfortable. A really fabulous place - you feel like you are on the set of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" We would definitely like to return - it was certainly the highlight of our trip.

Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokoron region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Gavalohori 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 center and one could wander through several interesting sections of this officially protected village. Stone built houses with lovely backyards full of colorful 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.
