Crisp white and smooth greys teamed with accents of stainless steel complete the sleek stylish finish of the minimalist interior. The huge glass doors open on to the grand swimming pool terrace that appear to float over the sea below and beyond. Relax in heavenly luxury and just drift away!
SKplace comprises three modern villas, superbly situated on the tranquil bay of Almyrida, with breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea and magnificent panoramic views of the White Mountains.
Each villa reflects a different architectural approach with either traditional Cretan (Villa Anemos), island style (Villa Ammos) or modern – minimal (Almyra Residence) characteristics. From the peace and serenity of the private grounds, a gentle stroll leads to the sandy beach and pretty cove, lined with romantic waterside tavernas. The location is ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside, ancient archaeological sites and the historical yet modern town of Chania with its beautiful Venetian harbour. Each villa has its own peaceful setting of mature gardens and a private swimming pool -heated on request-overlooking the sea. Impressive glass doors open onto balconies and terraces with spectacular views. The high quality accommodation features 'Dux' Swedish bedding, deluxe outdoor furniture and all modern conveniences including electronic control systems for Satellite TV, music and air-conditioning/heating. We also offer a 5 star hospitality service for an unforgettable holiday experience.
Parking area for 6 cars (2 allocated per villa). Automatic night lighting. Remote control entrance gates and 24/7 Security.
Pavlos and Katerina Papadaki
SK Place was a dream inspired by the unspoilt beauty of the land handed down by our grandfathers, the traditional architecture of Crete and the youthful vibrancy of our children. This dream became a reality in 2008 when we built Villa Ammos, Villa Anemos and Almyrida Residence.
Pavlos is a qualified architect trained in Milan. His work is based in the town of Chania, where he has run his own design and build practice since 1985. Katerina is a financial accountant and manager working since 1985 with Pavlos in his architectural-construction studio and her passion is interior design. Stella and Kostantinos are our kids and we named SK Place after them because we wished them to know that they too belong to this land of our forefathers.

A truly luxurious villa. The standard of design, build & outfitting is very good & the location is perfect. The views are unbelievable (white mountains & the sea) & the owner, Katerina, could not be more helpful both before & during the holiday. The bars & restaurants in town are 5 mins walk from the villa & provide plenty of variety.
There is plenty to do with walks, kayaking & swimming. Alternatively, just enjoy the views from this beautiful villa.
We rwere guests at all three of the adjacent SKPlace Villas in Almyrida for our wedding in September. All of our families were extremely pleased and relaxed. The accomodations were only surpassed by the quality of the staff. We are so spoiled by the luxury and personal treatment we received.
Thank you Katrina, Ariadne, and all your staff for helping to make our celebration perfect. I would recommend without hesitation SKPlace.
The location near, but not in, Almyrida was great. Close enough that we can comfortably walk to town, but far enough away that we felt seclusion when we wanted it. We very much enjoyed visiting the small villages and the wonderful restaurants near Almyrida. It was also close enough to Chania and the airport that trips there were not inconvenient.
