Extravagance Residences are 4bedroom villas with en-suite bathrooms. Earth-coloured rooms create a relaxing welcoming atmosphere.

Water sports like kite surfing, paddling and diving take place in Elafonisi beach by professional teams.

Lovers of snorkelling will find it adventurous to explore the marine life in the rocky & pebbly beach of Livadia bay.

Those who are bohemian in nature and like to inhale the 'aroma' of the wild flowers, bushes and trees give off have got the opportunity to walk through the natural paths leading to caves with stalagmites, open landscapes and olive groves.

Riding is another activity which will give you much pleasure. A feeling of freedom washes anyone down when riding by the beach and looking at the end of the horizon where the sky joins the sea.

Bird watching is possible with the use of binoculars available in the villa and a little patience to watch some couples hovering in the air.

Elafonisi is the landmark of western Crete. It is famous for its exotic sandy beach. A 15 minute drive from the villas will take you to the nearest sandy beach and the island of Elafonisi where the crescent and white sand is tinned with pink coral and fragments at the water edge. A great experience to walk across the shallow waters to reach the Elafonisi lagoon. Do not miss out on the boat trips to Kedrodasos the wood of cedars and nearby beaches. Elafonissi beach is an organised beach which attracts approximately 2500 visitors daily. Special tip: if you would like to avoid the crowd visit Elafonissi you 'd better visit it early in the morning or after 16:00 in the afternoon. Another alternative is to go on a boat trip to Kedrodasos or other beaches and return in the afternoon to enjoy tranquillity on Elafonisi beach.

At 5 months pregnant I was looking for a final relaxing, romatic getaway and Amygdalia Villas was everything I hoped it would be.

The villa was beautiful, exactly as it looks in the pictures, well appointed with everything you could need including extra's such as a hairdyer, pool towels (changed every few days) and mosquito burners.

Driving from Heraklion was straightforward (approx 3.5 hours) and whilst the final stretch as you leave the main road at Kissamos and head into Lividia affords spectacular views take care as it is extremely narrow and winding with sheer drops down into the bays below. Watch out for the goats that lay at the roadside and wander across your path!

On arrival our villa was stocked with some basics (bread, butter, fruit, orange juice, olive oil, soft drinks and a small bottle of wine) which was a welcome surprise and the minimarket on site offers a reasonable (if pricy) selection. Kissamos offers the closest thing to a supermarket to stock up from a wider selection and we picked up meat for the barbeque from the local butchers. Kisssamos is also the closest place for a bank.

Our pool area was completely private, well equipped and so peaceful that as you look out to see all you can hear is the distant bells from the goats grazing below.The sunsets were fantastic and we divided our time between barbeques in our pool area, eating the home cooked food (fish / chicken / lamb) in the bar / restraunt area and driving along the coast to the tiny hamlets with a small selection of bars and restraunts.

We hired a 4x4 and drove along the coastal track rather than the main route to the beach at Elefonissi - the coast road is only suitable for 4x4's and incredibly dusty and bumpy but if you don't mind that it cuts your journey time down dramatically. The beach is beautiful and well worth visiting.

Massage was available to book in advance (although I didn't try it) the full size TV / stereo system let us watch DVD's at siesta time and plug our IPOD in for music. The shower has massage jets to invigorate and as an alternative when you light the candles around the bath / jacuzzi it it's perfect for relaxing after a hard day!

Harry (in the minimarket / bar & restraunt area), Thalia , Maria and the whole family were welcoming, informative and couldn't be more helpful. We would definately recommend it to anyone wanting total relaxation and a little bit of luxury, we hope to return some day.

Ein wunderschönes und großzügiges Appartement, in sehr ruhiger Umgebung ermöglichte uns viele romantische Stunden bei täglich immer schöner werdenden Sonnenuntergängen. Dank Maria, Thalia und Dimitroff wurden wir immer gut und reichlich kulinarisch verwöhnt (Unterhaltung allerdings nur in Englisch). Das Appartement + der Pool sind sehr sauber und ermöglichen auch im Hochsommer ausreichende Abkühlung. Wir konnten den ab Mittag doch etwas überfüllten nahen karibischen Strand von Elafonisi, schon frühzeitig, da nur 10 min. entfernt mit PKW, fast alleine genießen und zu Mittag wieder auf der schattigen Terasse mit Superaussicht (180° Meeresausblick, sonst nur einige Ziegen und Schafe) verweilen. Ausflüge ins Landesinnere, nach Castello (Kissamos), Paleochora und Chania sind innerhalb von einer Stunde, auf sehr guten Strassen möglich. Alles in allem: Ein wunderschöner Urlaub, sehr gut zum raschen Entspannen geeignet und wir kommen sicher wieder.

unfortunatly we only got stay a week in this paradise. Its wonderfully located on the west coast of Crete, 10 minutes drive away from possibly the best beach in Europe. The house was as good as the pictures showed us and the pool was huge wic hthe kids loved. The view...
Every evening i sat down and watched as the sun dipped into the sea. We`ve never seen sunsets like this before, and ill probably have to go back to see one again. And i probably will.
The best part about the villa was Thalia herself and her staff. Superfriendly, superhelpful and supersweet. We would order up dinner every evening and they served us many cretan dishes. Once we asked them to make something that wasnt on the meny and preparit as they saw fit. That gave us the one of the best meals i can remember eaten. We`re definatly coming back and looking forward to meeting Thalia and her friends again.
