  • Everything you need is here in this apartment, cooking condiments, washing machine and hairdryer. The location is excellent for the beach and there are two supermarkets on the same street. You are also spoilt for choice if you want to eat out. I had an amazing massage on the beach from a lovely man called Rashmir , very professional and decadent. N.B. Pack a tea towel as Greek accommodations don’t seem to have them.

    For those who may be planning a family summer vacation and dream of days sitting on the beach, finding a child friendly or family-oriented beach with crystal clear waters might be a desirable setting Armonia Apartments in Almirida.
    This delightful studio is found on the ground floor. It is twin bedded and also has a convertible sofa. In the kitchen there is a stove, fridge, kettle, toaster, sufficient crockery, cutlery, pans, glasses, egg cups etc, a separate bathroom with shower and toilet and plenty of wardrobe space. For those who may ask the use of washing machine we have installed a common washing machine at the garage.This is at an extra cost of 5 euros per load as we provide the washing powder and softener. There is a small patio area facing an olive grove. Here you can sit in tranquil surroundings, perhaps enjoying the sound of the birds calling to each other amongst the trees. How about a bottle of Mythos, Zorbas or Amstel before embarking on the short walk to the tavernas where you may get a table along the sea. Almyrida is situated on the North coast of Western Crete. It lies to the east of Chania City, approximately 15 Km from the ferry port of Souda and about 25km from the airport. Nearby are the small towns of Kalyves and Vamos. The beautiful city of Chania is a short drive away and to the East is the resort of Georgioupoli and a little further away is the ancient city of Rethymno and then the other major airport at Iraklio. A very short distance away and the backdrop to Almyrida is the imposing range of the White Mountains with peaks in excess of 2,400 metres. Almyrida is the ideal place for a holiday. It has sandy beaches, a small harbour, a sailing school, Blue Flag beach, Greek tavernas, fish restaurants, tavernas selling English food or pasta and pizza, small supermarkets, coffee shops and night bars with Satelite TV, hairdressing salon, jewelry shop, kiosk, broadband internet,gift shops, taxi station, rent-a-car, ATMs, gas station and much more. The sandy beaches, good weather, beautiful hinterland and the friendliness of Almyrida mean that many visitors return year after year; and some two or three times a year. Here at the Armonia Apartments you can enjoy all the facilities of the village and the comfort of the pleasant apartments and studios. Almirida is an ideal centre for exploring the Apokoronos area of Crete as well as other areas of the island. The area is beautiful and attracts walkers in late winter and spring and again in late summer and autumn. Birdwatchers and botanists are also attracted by the wealth and diversity of the area. But, of course, the beach is the major attraction for visitors during the summer.
    My neighbourhood is in a quite location but so close to all the facilities! It is surrounded by olive groves,wild cretan cactus figs,lemon trees and walnut and avocado trees..
  • Great tour around the town of Negombo. Throughly enjoyed the Fish Market and the Dosa at the end !

    Heshan2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Basic needs are present, location is ok without pretensions! Everything is going well from the apartment ... and Lilian is very friendly and welcoming .. !!

    Roland2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice experience! Lilian was great at communicating and was very accommodating. The place was quite clean and a cleaning service would come every few days. Very close to the beach and a few nice supermarkets! Wonderful stay, would recommend to anyone :)

    Elly2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect apartment for 1-2 people looking for a relaxing holiday in NW Crete. The place is spotless, with regular cleaning service, there is a nice patio for breakfast and the beach/restaurants are a short walk away. The host Lilian is very friendly and quick to respond to queries.

    Tom2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was the perfect place to stay ! Not very far from many interesting places and also the beach. Lilian was very kind and pleasant to discuss with, she was also very regarding to our needs and comfort. The apartment have everything needed for a peaceful and practical stay and of course you’re not very far (3’ walking) from the center of the village when you can find good food and a nice beach. Really appreciated and recommend this one to every couple that wants to stay in this place for a few days.

  • Beautiful flat very close toshops, restaurants and walkable distance to the beautiful beach. Very quiet at night and comfortable sleeping arrangements.

    Kennedy2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Communication with Lilian was as smooth as it can be, very fast to answer our messages. The apartment was very clean and it is like in the pictures. Very well equipped against mosquitoes with nets in every window, which allowed us to spend one week of September without using the aircon because we could have the windows opened. Very well located if you plan to drive around the island or spend some time in Almyrida Beach, just 5 minutes walking. Supermarkets and restaurants are located at walking distance, and parking is very easy. We had a wonderful time both at Lilian's, and in Crete!

    Pepe2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lillian's apartments are so beautiful, clean, and a quick walk to the beach and main Almyrida (with amazing restaurants). She setup airport transfers for us, was very quick with communication, and even offers maid service. It was so nice to have our own space to come "home" to every day. Don't look anywhere else, this is the perfect place.

  • Everything was absolutely perfect at Tasos and Christina's. house. From communication to the welcime. They are great for giving advice on life in Greece. The accommodation is just lovely, tastefully decorated and very functional. This is a very friendly loft space 20 steps from the beach of Almyirida. Several good cafes and restaurants are in the immediate area. A small supermarket next to the house too. There was even a Smart TV for watching movies at night. We could not ask for more for our stay in Crete. I strongly recommend Tasos'House and would definitely stay here again if I come back to the islands. Ilaria

  • Very nice, very clean and full equipped. It doesnt take long before you feel your like home. We liked the location because it was calm and since there a few place we wanted to go in Crete like Chania, Heraklio, Elafonisi Beach we felt like the location was perfect to travel and also near nice villages and taverns. Tasos also left a very nice book with his recommendations such as restaurants which is a nice touch and I strongly recommend you follow as the nearest restaurant are tourist catch, expenssive and not so good. However Tasos recommendations will bring you to vey nice places and for cheap. I could go on and on but Ill just say this place is a no brainer stop looking and book for a great experience. Thank you Tasos.

  • A beautifully restored traditional house, you feel like a local staying here, with all the facilities and toiletries provided so you don’t have to shop for anything but food. The lovely neighbour gave us a home grown cucumber- delicious! All our questions were answered very promptly, we got used to the power surges knocking out the electricity most mornings which was quickly rectified by flicking a switch and the air conditioning was very quiet, efficient and welcome.

There is a large terrace with a panoramic view of the sea. The beach is just down, as well as the shops (small supermarkets, bakery, car rental agency ...), restaurants and cafes as well as the bus stop. bus (30min bus to Chania). The place is quiet despite the presence of restaurants. Kalyves is a nice and picturesque village. Everything is within walking distance. Simon and his family are very welcoming and smiling people. I recommend this host.

  • The place was clean and better than what we expected. Simos and his parents were friendly and ready to assist should we need something. We enjoyed the winter view of the sea with the fishing boats rolling out in the afternoons and mornings. The location was great and since we had a car we could roam in all directions and explore this paradise island. Thank you Simos!

    Villa Mytrto provides a traditional stone built house, which is located on a hill, over village Almyrida in the old traditional settlement of Agios Vasileios. It was built around the mid nineteenth century by our grandfather Kyriako. A hundred years later, the residents gradually started leaving and the settlement was deserted. The house was abandoned as all the rest of the houses were and went into ruins. Our parents Kostas and Stella, drawn by their vision to revive it, they started renovating it, a procedure which was continued and completed by us, Niko, Patty and our daughter Myrto. The Villa provides a bedroom with a double bed and an undivided space (including a kitchen, sitting room, dining room, a low ceiling loft and a grape crushing press) where three people can be comfortably accommodated. It also includes a bathroom, a shower outside and a spacious veranda with a wooden pergola, a wooden handmade antique table and a wonderful view.

  • We spent 10 wonderful days in Patty's house. She is on the hill with very nice view from the terrace. You can go down to the village / beach and walk up, but you still have about twenty minutes to go up (with the children). Otherwise, a car seems to me very recommended in the corner. The beach in the area is small and quiet, very nice. The city of Chania is half an hour away, a 40 minute drive to Rethymnon. We would gladly have stayed longer. The village of Almyrida is a small seaside resort with some small shops and several restaurants. We find all the necessary, and the rest to the neighboring village.

    Matthieu2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice. We really enjoyed the rooms, the tasteful decor and the terrace with the great view. The communication and the check with Michael went smoothly, the welcome was warm and the tips valuable. We can only recommend!

    Dominique2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A very tasteful house. When we say it, we were very surprised that it is so beautiful. The view, the peace, the atmosphere, everything wonderful. Paty is a very pleasant and correct hostess. Thank you for the great time. Monika and Anna

    Monika2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great balcony with sea view. Quiet area but everything you need is close by.

    חן רבאון שרי2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We were greeted by Michael who was really very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. The description of the home is really consistent with that of the ad we really had a great time. The beach of Almeryda is actually 15 minutes walk you will just climb a good hill when you go back to the home otherwise 2 min drive or there was plenty of room for this parked (walk to go to beach the first week by car for the 2nd) The view from the terrace is really beautiful. There is everything you need near bar restaurant and small Market to do your shopping nevertheless I advise you to do your shopping in a hyper because much cheaper (30 min by car). If I had one point to question is that we would have liked that there is a cleaning service at the end of the first week just for at least vacuumed because on returning from the beach we brought back a little bit of sand in the house. Thank you again for this stay we had a great holiday as a young couple (26 and 24 years) the place is really very relaxing and far from the big tourist crowds in this period in any case from late August to early July. Thanks again Michael

    Mickael2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place on the top of Almeryda Great view, great place

The apartment was very comfortable and quiet, equipped with everything you need, also in the kitchen. It's important to us because we like cooking. Outside view of the sea and mountains and a beautiful sunset. Quiet and charming place. Andrzej and Kalina

  • very good i highly recommended. In the town there is a very cool cooperative called Esmigia which we also recommend to go !!

    Nunu2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very nice, clean and just as pictured with excellent kitchen facilities. Georgios and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is in a quiet residential area a short distance from the centre of Plaka where there are two supermarkets, several tavernas and even a craft beer bar. The beach at Almyrida is 3/4 mile away (only a 15 minute walk although slightly longer coming back as uphill)! It is ideal for families as the sea is very shallow for quite a distance out from the beach. We enjoyed our stay at Georgios’s apartment and would definitely stay there again.

    Lucie2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a few days at Jurga. The apartment was very clean and consistent with the description. A big plus for the terrace and the hammock that allows to have a magnificent view of the sea. We recommend.

    Florine2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Simple, sincere appartement in Almyrida, with a good energy. Perfectly clean with comfortable bed. You feel like home. Jurga is really communicative and gave us great tavern adresses. Thank you :)

  • Peaceful place,amazing position,traditional village by the sea...don't miss it!!

    Christos2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Peerless sea view !!! The apartment is large, with high ceilings, two-room: a bedroom and a kitchen with a sofa and a bed. Both rooms have doors to a large balcony. Amazing view! Linen change and cleaning - every three days. There is toilet paper, soap, shampoo. Very convenient location, in our opinion ideal in Kalyves. The exit from the apartment is on the street, right at the bus stop in Chania. Nearby a bakery, minimarket, gyros, coffee shop, car rental and other shops. There is one large supermarket in Kalyves, on the outskirts of the village, 10-15 minutes walk to it. If you are by car - parking from the sea. Under the apartment is the most beautiful large tavern. She did not bother us, on the contrary, we enjoyed live music at least twice a week. Only the smells that came, perhaps salivating :) By 24h, the taverns were empty. The beach under the tavern with flat stones, in addition, there may be strip-cold water due to the proximity of the river. But right behind it is a large sandy beach, there are trees where you can hide in the shade. To the other side, where there is IN.KA supermarket (SYNKA signboard) - another huge beach. All beaches are equipped with shower, toilet, sunbeds, as a rule, for a drink are free. Sunset at sea is smooth. If you are by car, this is a very convenient starting point to go around the surrounding beaches in the Chania area (look at Devil's Bay, Zomba, 10-km Georgioupolis Beach, Lake Kurna and much, much more). The perfect combination of price and quality. We were very pleased, thanks a lot to the hosts for the hospitality! We would return with joy, but so far there are many other places that we would like to visit)

    Tanya2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb stays. The location is wonderful. About 15min from chania center by car. Nearby beaches are excellent. The communication was great and quick. The room is cleaned at least twice a week. The room is big and well equipped with you'll need, nothing super fancy but there's no need for that. It's excellent. The apartment is above a taverna owned by the family. Great people to communicate with. The dad is super cute and nice even if he doesn't speak English he always made sure to great us warmly. We even got a small honey jar as a gift! We highly recommend this place and we will certainly be back again!

    Mohamad Bilal2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with great sea view. good value for the money. The location is great - near the center of Kalives with nice Tavernas.

    Ivan2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for hollidays

    Louise2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the accommodation is great! Balcony with great views right on the beach of Kalyves, the pictures do not fool! From the balcony to the beautiful beach with its own loungers and umbrellas, there is only a short minute walk. If you are looking forward to a good portion of Greece away from the tourist hotspots, this is the place for you. The apartment is directly above the tavern the landlord (delicious food), but from the tavern itself you hardly get anything. In the apartment and from the balcony you can follow the music evenings but wonderful. The apartment itself was so far clean, with fresh linen and towels, and a kitchenette with two hobs, sink and fridge. The landlords are very nice, a bit Greek planned but for the friendlier. Anyone who, as I said, likes to be off the beaten track and has a rental car / car with him, can feel very comfortable here!

    Thilo2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kalives is a lovely place to stay. Village, sea and accommodation all within a few metres. This apartment is in the middle of the village and has a fantastic sea view which can be enjoyed from the balcony. Beach and sun beds immediately in front and an excellent taverna below. This friendly family will ensure that you have an unforgettable holiday.

The bustling coastal village of Almyrida offers many seaside cafe-bars, taverns and has an excellent blue flaged sandy beach, only 5 minutes by car. In Almyrida you will find a sea sports and diving center, too.
  • We had a lovely stay in this house. Panagiotis was so warm and friendly and always smiling. The house has a beautiful view on the sea and a very nice garden where you can also park your car. Absolutely recommended!

    Bruno2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect choice for holiday, in a quite and nice town. Also there is a blue flag beach near here, we enjoy everyday time. Mrs Anna and her family are all friendly, preparing dessert, fruits, snacks, and wine for us that treat us like family member, which impressed me a lot. And give us conviennent guidance to travel Crete.we look forward for next time to come again.

    芷衡2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here at Anna's sea view house. We were met by Panagiotis, who greeted us with a huge smile and warm, friendly welcome, even though we were late arriving. He was a true gentleman. We saw a lot of him out and about in the village. Always wearing his huge smile! We know the area of Kokkino Chorio, Plaka and Almyrida as we were married there 2 years ago. Anna's house was perfect for us to celebrate our anniversary. The flowers, wine, cretan biscuits and little note left were such a lovely touch... we were overjoyed. The house was very comfortable, great shower which is unusual abroad and excellent WIFI which was a bonus! I would definitely recommend staying here. Fabulous restaurants within walking distance. Elpis and Prinos were our favourites. We will be back! ❤

    Beverley2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. Beautiful view of the bay of Souda from the living room and two terraces, one of which is in the shade of a carob tree. Cretan house very clean well equipped that can accommodate 3 people without problem. Air conditioning internet. Kitchen and bathroom very decent mosquito net everywhere. Guests can enjoy a well-kept garden from the terrace. Really one of the best value for money in 10 years on Crete. Very nice home owners with raki and homemade cakes. Panagiotis also want a resto bar '' O PRINOS '' where it is good to eat or drink for a very modest price. Plaka ideally located to visit the region of Chania and apokoronas and enjoy the beach of Almyrida.

    BRUNO Et NADINE2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Home is located in very pleasant and quiet place. Near to restaurants and food shops. Place is very good if you planning to visit Chania, Rethimno and surroundings. Panagiotis and his wife are very hospitable owners, ready to help at any problem. We are recommend this place for couples and people who likes quite and pleasant places with nature, animals and local flavor. (no clubs and crowds of people).

    Dasha2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Plaka - an excellent resting place - near the beaches of Almyrida, Kalives, to Chania 25 km. We were on the car and traveled a lot of places in the west of Crete, it's very convenient to do with Plaka. The house of Anna in reality is the same as in the photo -bedroom with a comfortable bed, a full kitchen, where there is everything necessary (and where we found a treat on arrival-Greek raki and homemade cookies), there is a patio where you can sit during the daytime heat, and incredible view from the terrace to the sea and sunset, crackling cicadas and the scent of jasmine! It was just fantastic. Thank you, Anna! Thank you, Panagiotis!

    Сергей2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great hollydays in anna's house.Very clean,great view and its the good place to visit west of the island!

    Elodie2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Panagiotis for being so helpful, picked us up from the airport transfer and dropped us back to meet our airport transfer. Thanks also for the lovely Cretan salad tomatoes, they were very sweet. The accommodation is basic but Cretan and for the price we paid we were very satisfied. The bed linen and towels were changed and the house cleaned mid way through our stay which was needed as the temperature stayed around 34deg all week. Air con and Wifi excellent. Fantastic views from the front balcony of the house. Easy access to Chania and surrounding areas via great bus services and reasonable fares. All in all a great week. We did not have a TV as there was something wrong with it but it did not detract from the holiday, maybe a blessing to have no TV to watch. The only things I would comment on are that the 4 minutes to the beach are probably by car, the walk to nice Almyridia beaches are all downhill and takes around 15 mins, but if you are not able it may be a struggle to negotiate the hills back up to the accommodation-fantastic views though!! This is purely my observation. If I was the owner of the accommodation I would totally refurb and rent for more than twice the current renting price, it is a great family rental. If you want a relaxing holiday apartment with a fantastic restaurant (Elpis, run by Moulie, her husband and fantastic chef Nicos and hardworking children)) within a lovely 10 min walk to Plaka, then this is ideal.

    The apt has a fully equipped kitchen and I think anything you need for your holidays! Every year we try to renew and renovate our apts making them prettier and more comfortable for our guests.. Our neighborhood is quiet with friendly and smiling people.. My family lives near by, so for anything you need it's easy to reach us!
    Perched on the side of the small hill of Almyrida, overlooking its Bay, stand the Villas Dina. A glorious panoramic view is the great bonus of those hilltop apartments, by day of White Mountains and the sandy beaches and by night of the superb sunsets. One of our apartments is No 2.. The open plan design of the living room and kitchen affords a lovely feeling of spaciousness and comfort. Patio doors provide access to the covered dining terrace which is just the perfect place to watch the magnificent sunsets over the Bay of Almirida. It has a well fitted kitchen and an inner hall leads to the two air conditioned bedrooms. The one has a double bed with patio door to a covered terrace and the other has two single beds. Also there is a sofa bed in the living room which can sleep one person.

  • Spectacular sea view

    Jarmo2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis is such a great host, very responsive and attentive with her guests. The apartment is beautiful and very clean, was perfect for our vacation in Crete, at walking distance from the beach and local restaurants and shops in Almyrida, also a perfect location for day trips in Crete. The balcony offers amazing views of the gulf, it was our favourite spot to relax looking at the beautiful surroundings and to watch the sunsets! We would definitely love to return there!

    Andreia2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say anything negative about Artemis or her property. Artemis is a thoughtful and communicative host who keeps her properties well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location we stayed in is perfect with a wonderful view across the small bay of Almyrida with beautiful sunsets. It is close enough to the town for easy walking to the beach or shops but just far enough away to not be bothered by any traffic or noise. It’s also very close to Chania and a number of lovely villages. We loved our visit to Crete and will be going again!

    Graham2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment and the view is better than the pictures. Artemis is a great host and Almyrida a lovely place to visit.

    Richard2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • All is perfect, especially the fantastic terrace where surely everyone will spend most of the time. I confirm all the positive comments of other guests. Consider that there is not washing machine and the nearer laundry is not in Almyrida but only in Kalives, the nearby village. The apartment is located at the top of a hill and the road to reach it from the beach is rather steep although short, so it is not advisable for very elderly people or people with handicap if you don't want to take the car every day.

    Giovanni2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis runs the apartments with her sister, Dina and her parents live next door and are always around to help with anything but are not intrusive. Artemis and Dina are lovely ladies and keep the apartments spotless. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back again.

    Liz2017-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing. With excellent views of the water from the large balcony. The Almyrida itself is a nice little seaside resort, with a very good and child-friendly beach and a number of nice restaurants along the beach. The area is scenic and we went for several lovely trips. In the apartment is a brochure with Almyrida walks. We can highly recommend them. Throughout a wonderful place we can warmly recommend

    Merete2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Where can I start! We stayed at apartment number 2. Dina and Artemis both made us extremely welcome, they were always available. There was a complementary bottle of wine for us when we arrived and everything in place for a relaxing holiday and atmosphere. Artemis went through a lot of effort to get me some cider vinegar when they had run out in the health shop. They were both very friendly without being invasive, nothing was too much trouble. The apartment itself was stunning, comfortable beds, clean with lots of space and the beds and towels were changed every two days. The view from the balcony was indeed stunning, I feel it was one of the highlights of the holiday and we sat every night watching the sunset. It was difficult to leave such a peaceful setting! The apartment is away from the road, so its very peaceful at night. The journey into town/beach was minutes away, you could either walk down the road or go down a track, either way it’s a pleasurable walk. There are shops, supermarkets, a bus station and all amenities for tourists. We didn’t have a car but got around by taxi/bus and visited lovely places- Vamos is a stunning village not far away. We also walked into Plaka which is another lovely little village which is 20 minutes walk up the hill.

The apartment has a very spacious terras, the sunset from here is amazing and exceeded all our expectations. After a warm welcome from owners Maria and Yannis we enjoyed this slice of heaven in a beautiful and unspoiled area of Crete.

    Marc2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a week at the apartment and could not be happier with our choice. The apartment was sparkling clean, the living area was open concept and the view was amazing. The bedrooms had plenty of storage and the beds comfortable. There is a market and several restaurants within walking distance, the food was amazing and the local residents are some of the friendliest people we have ever met in our travels. We would love to go back.

    Patricia2019-10-05T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed our stay! There was a beautiful view and the host was great and quick to respond. The location was just what we wanted, a little ways out of the busy areas. It was quiet and roomy for just me and my wife.

    Alex2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We was with 3 person there. big enough very lovely punishment. Fine place, really amazing view, very clean. A bit far away from a bigger supermarket, but some small one was around from flat. A good place to make Holliday🇬🇷

    Christos2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We spend some wonderful days in this really spacious and well equipped appartement. A great view over Souda Bay and to the mountains from the large balcony, beautiful sunsets are guaranteed. Check in and check out were totally uncomplicated and Iannis gave us a nice and warm welcome. Several taverns nearby, but good to have a rental car. Fabio always supported with tips and offered assistance. We can really recommend this appartement and would book it again for another trip to Crete.

    Brigitte2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely home, the view from the balcony is amazing. Beautiful sunsets right from home. very well furnished. We were just 2 adults and a baby, but it can easily accommodate more people. Kalvyes beach is very close and lovely with shaded areas from trees. it is an easy drive to chania and other lovely beaches. Would definitely stay here again if we visit the island. The place is much better than what you can see in the pictures..

    Sai2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fantastic place to stay the balcony has some great views overlooking souda bay. The accommodation very clean and spacious. I had the best sleep I ever had whilst on holiday bedroom very dark and cool with the shutters and very quiet. I will certainly be returning great host. There are a few tavernas walking distance from the apartment that served great food a very relaxing holiday.

    Gavalohori is a traditional village where you will surely experience today's Cretan lifestyle. It has its own harmonious way of blending the old and new. It is something you have to experience to feel & understand. The house is on a hilltop in a private area. It has a pleasant and warming atmosphere. The location is very convenient, all you may need is only a short walk away from the house, (e.g. mini-markets, bakery, restaurants, cafe. Almirida beach is only 3 km away and 27 to Chania city.
    The name fits here . It is a cosy and comfy home . It is a perfect size for either 1 or 2 people. You have all you need from a good bedroom size, a spacious kitchen and a cute living room to sit and relax. The veranda is also plentiful and quiet.
    Gavalohori is a quite famous village and a favourite to many. I guess someone would have to actually live it to realize it. It has a very unique and harmonious way of mingling with traditional and modern day world and style which creates its own special style. Its never to quiet or too noisy. You can feel the peacefulness and enjoy the beauty of nature without being too far to feel isolated. The house is right above the main square of the village where something is usually happening that you may easily become a part of.
  • We had a wonderful holiday with Julie. The house was as described in a quiet location surrounded by nature and very nice people. Everything is there, what is needed. About the air conditioning we were very grateful. Check in and communication was great and absolutely trouble free. Julie answers immediately. The place is beautiful and still a piece of typical Greece with friendly people. There are bakers and grocery stores and restaurants with very good food. We had 2 wonderful weeks, have a lot of greek warmth and can only recommend this accommodation !!! Lovely again.

  • Julies place was the perfect location for our Week-long holiday in Crete : in a little village that maintained it's authenticity, with a wonderful Tavern just down the road, a folklore museum and a real lived in atmosphere away from the hectic touristy areas on the coast. 10 minutes away by car from Almirinda, a small beach area with families and restaurants that remains not too crowded even in the middle of August. The apartment has all the necessary amenities, AC comes quite handy, and there's a little area on the terrasse for coffee or breakfast.

  • If you are looking for an authentic experience in Crete, this is the place to stay! Quaint little house in the mountains & close to local village! We only stayed 2 nights, which I stayed longer! Julie was great, we met her while checking out, directions given where great (not easy to find if you have never been). The house is up the hill & need to have a small car to navigate through roads & parking! We ventured out to the village the last night & found a great restaurant, also markets for fruits & food. The beach is 5 minutes away, you pass by on your way. All in all, a great place to stay!

  • Julie is a wonderful hostess who really goes that extra mile to make your stay perfect! The wonderful little house is part of a complex of houses but is free standing and has it's own patio. You can even use the neighbouring patio with a view for breakfast when there is no one residing in the bigger house next to it. The village in which the house is located is small and has a cosy tavern with live, cretan, music and good food. The village is simple and not overly touristic, it has a good location from where to explore northwestern Crete. The house has AC which is wonderful in summer and great value for money! Thanks again to Julie for a wonderful stay!

  • Great house with all the needed amenities for a short stay and perfect for couples. Gavalochori is a great location, easy access to the highway and the main cities/sights. Julie gives great local tips and replies very fast in case you have any questions! Highly recommended :)

  • What a lovely little house. Small (as described) but ideal for 2 people :-) Amazing views of the White Mountains & surrounding area, the view out of the kitchen window alone was a dream! The house itself was set in a perfect little village. There are bakeries, little shops and some fantastic tavernas. All within a few minutes walk. We felt very welcome there. The host could not have been better, she was lovely. Always available and very responsive. Almyrida (for the beach etc) was only 5 minutes in the car. In fact there were so many accessible places within an easy drive such as Kournas lake, Georgioupoli, Vamos, Chania Venetian Harbour, Kalyves. The village location was ideal for us as it was peaceful and a real taste of Greek life. Thank you Julie and we hope to see you again :-)

    Julie2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Really great, it was really clean and well equipped. There was a minor problem with the water adn as soon as I notified Julie she immediatley came and sorted it. She gave me good locel tips on the area and was a pleasure to chat to. Would stay here again.

  • Maria’s holiday home is very modern, comfortable and well equipped. (Loved the rainforest shower and the big patio area.) It was well located, about 10 minute walk to the beach but far enough away from the noise in the evenings. The thoughtful extras were really appreciated. We hope to return at some time in the future.

    Leonie2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a sparkling clean oasis. Its very comfortable, quiet but only a few minutes walk to the beach. It was great to sit out on the patio having a drink looking out to sea as the sun went down, listening to the sounds of the bells tinkling on the goats across the road. Highly recommended.

    John2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very good and calm place for a good price. Amazing host. Well equipped kitchen. Very nice BBQ which we did not use.

Helpful tips on restaurants. Fresh fruits and a bottle of wine to welcome us were a lovely touch as were the provision of cheeses, water etc in the fridge. Overall a lovely experience. Would highly recommend this property.

So clean and had everything you could want and was so homely walking in the door We arrived late so had a few things in the fridge for breakfast too It was cleaned halfway though our stay too and put more fresh water in I would go back in a heartbeat and hopefully will next year. The perfect place to stay xx

    Josh2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect accommodation, clean and well equipped. Very local for beach, shops and restaurants. Certainly go back and recommend.

    Pauline2018-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We've had a truly fantastic stay at Vana and George's house. The house is very stylish and extremely clean. The house was also cleaned during our stay including towels and sheets change. The house is in an excellent location, a couple of minutes walk to restaurants and the beach. A lovely bakery us just a few doors up. However it's also very quiet and peaceful. We were very comfortable there. There are are lovely touches for children- toys and books, a child's built in toilet seat (sounds strange thing to write but one of those little things that makes life easier when away with kids!) Vana and George are really great hosts. Communication was always good. There was food in the fridge on arrival meaning we didn't need to shop straight away and this was much appreciated. Vana and George also came to our rescue when my son's little cuddly toy got wrapped up in the bed sheets that had gone to the laundry and rescued it! Thank you! If we are back in Almyrida (likely as we love it there) we'd definitely love to stay again.

  • We were very happy with our stay at Joan's place. We had a perfect weekend. The house, the nature around and the view are amazing! Joan is a perfect host, she cared a lot and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I would come back any time!

    Julius2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don’t do the view justice. This is an amazing place up in the hills, surrounded by mountains, views of the sea and the beautiful bell sounds of sheep wandering around. Joan and John are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make sure your time spent is relaxing. From the wonderful breakfast of bread and homemade jam, to lovely chats with Joan, you are sure to enjoy your time. Close enough to some restaurants and in great proximity for exploring central and western Crete. Chania is 30minutes a way. All in all, I will say that if you want a bit of a “closer to nature” stay coupled with their lovely hospitality, then Alpha House is the place.

    Jenn2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are very friendly and help in everything, the house is great, with light, very clean large kitchen, gardens, the room is ideal size and has a private bathroom, all very good. I would surely stay there again.

    Regina2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb stay at Joan, a very warm and endearing hostess. The house of John and Joan is well placed between Chania and Rethymnon and it is quiet and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Thank you to both of them for their superb hospitality.

    Sandrine2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is one of the warmest and most caring hosts I have met! Our stay was truly idyllic as she is very caring. If you seek tranquility and a place where you feel at home, Joan's home is the place to go. Thanks again !!

    Gwendoline2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is such a lovely, kind and warm presence and as soon as you meet her, makes you feel like you are at home! She is 68 years old and still have beautiful dreams and willingness about life. I stayed in one of her rooms which was very comfortable and nice decorated with a spacious ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. The balconies were the highlight of this lovely house in the natural environment with amazing view to the White mountains. Highlight was also her delicious breakfast with her homemade bread and jam which she makes with so much love. I felt the area that the house is located very familiar, with nice taverns and local café-bars only 5 minutes drive to Plaka. I was so lucky to find her and share together life stories. I would return back for sure and soon I hope :))

    Angela2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place has million dollar views of magnificent nature, especially the mountains one can almost touch, Nature at its best, host is wonderful, helpful and delivers loads of of useful information, all in all - unavoidable.

Recommended Excursions 1.Fragokastello Fragokastello is in Sfakia, in the south coast of west Crete 13 kilometers east of the Chora Sfakion and west of Plakias. Fragokastello is a small seaside village with a few houses and enough rooms and apartments. It is known for the namesake Venetian castle which is saved in a very good condition, the beautiful beaches and the Drosoulites, the ghosts that appear in Fragokastello at dawn every May. However, over the centuries the region showed great monuments, but very few survive today.Fragokastello is in a surprisingly flat small plain, behind which the east White Mountains appear with the gorge and the Kallikrates plateau. This region is one of the many surprises that the nature of Crete offers to its visitors. 2. Sougia Sougia is a little seaside village in southern Crete, 70 kilometers south of Chania.Sougia is built at the exit of the Agia Eirini gorge, west of the Agierinioti streambed, and stands out for its big, beautiful beach that never fills up with people and its relaxed casual atmosphere.Sougia became known from the young in age or soul, who spent their vacation in their tents under the trees of the beach. Especially 20 years ago the situation was completely hippie in Sougia, but today it has begun to change. The scenes still appear every summer and the beach in her eastern side continues to attract nudists, but less than before. 3. Samaria Gorge The canyon is the biggest in Europe with 18 km length and the road that we walk in it is 14 km. His width ranges from 150 to 3 meters, at its narrowest point, the Doors. It was proclaimed a national park, in 1962 to protect rare flora and fauna. In 1980 it was awarded by the Council of Europe as one of the most beautiful areas. Due to its wild form, is the only place that the “beast” still lives as the locals call the cretan wild goat. A lot of rare species of birds also live and along the gorge many and rare herbs such as burning bush and wild flowers grow.In the gorge is forbidden: hunting, setting fires, collecting flowers and herbs, and also spending the night. Throughout the length of the route there are guards but also guides with mules that carry with a fare, whoever has a problem. Even in the entrance a symbolic ticket is given, that is refundable, to verify that all the visitors got out of the gorge. In the winter the canyon is impassable and the passage is allowed from early May until October. The course takes 6-8 hours depending on the abilities of the hiker. For the path we must be supplied with suitable hard shoes, (boots), and light food. It is not necessary to carry water with us, because along the gorge, there are streams with crystal, clear waters. But we must have been informed for the last’s boat departure from Agia Roumeli so that we leave for Sfakia. Xiloskalos, at the entrance of the gorge and at an altitude of 1200m , is a narrow path with a wooden handrail for convenience and protection of those who descend to Faraga, as the locals call it. Descending the path, you are slowly dominated by an awe. High mountains on the right and on the left a ravin without end in front of you. Countless shades of green and deep far another tall mountain. 4. Falasarna In the west end of the Chania’s prefecture and in a distance 59 km from the town of Chania is Falasarna. Also that was a port of ancient Polirinia that was independent, cutting her own coins which were depicting on one side the head of a woman and on the other the word FA between a trident. Due to the high security of the port and the impregnable fortress Polirinia became an important commercial and shipping centre. The entrance of the town was by sea. She was built in levels, as evidenced by the walls that have been saved until today. Today the port and the channel are 100 meters away from the sea, because the beach has been lifted. The Falasarna’s beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful of Crete with fine sand and length of 3 km. Her position at the west end helps her have the most beautiful sunset. 5. Elafonisi Elafonisi is near the southwestern side of Crete, 43 kilometeres from Kasteli and 76 from Chania. The road from Chrisoskalitissa continues in a dirt road to Elafonisi, for which there are organized tours from Kasteli and Chania as well as boats from Palaiochora. It has beautiful beaches. 6. Chania The city of Chania and capital of the prefecture stands out for her charm and nobility. It is separated in old and new town. The so-called new town, is a modern urban center, with all the amenities of any big city. Nevertheless the experienced eye of a traveler distinguishes elements of her old nobility. As one walks through the picturesque streets of the old town and observes the architecture building of settlements understands the footsteps of the cultures that marked the country’s history and the culture of people.A stroll in Chania looks like a fairytale. In every corner of the road your appointment with history renews and in every turn a “hero” waits for you and invites you to go on. RECOMMENDED CRETAN FOODS Olive oil Crete has about 60 olive trees per inhabitant so olive oil (the only oil traditionally used in cooking) is one of the staple foods. A family of four will easily use a litre a day if not more. A good restaurant must use good oil, the rest of the cooking comes second. Most people have their own supply of oil or buy from each other but of course you can buy oil in the supermarkets. Buy extra virgin oil, it will often be written in English on the labels. If you are considering buying some really good olive oil to take back with you, it is best to buy from a producer, not because it is cheaper (which it is) but because you can find some really good oil. Where? I am not going to divulge my supply - I think that I have just found the perfect one after years of searching - and have it plundered! If you go around and eat at a place where you find the oil especially tasty, compliment them on their oil and ask nicely if you could buy a little bit of it (a few litres is a little bit). This is, I guess, the best way to strike lucky. Another place where you could look is the covered market in Hania: there are some good oils to be found there and you might be able to get a taste before buying. There are no big price differences between the best oils and poor quality ones and as a rule they cost around 4 Euro per litre. Cheese You will be able to find a reasonable variety of cheeses in the supermarkets but there are only a few types of Cretan cheeses, listed below: Graviera: the name is a loose rendition of the word "gruyere" and it is a little similar. This is the standard hard cheese and being of local production, there are many types and tastes. Taste before buying. Myzitra: a fresh cheese made of ewe's milk. It can also be made of goats milk (in which case it is called "katsikithia") or mixed milk. This is the standard fresh cheese. A good goat's one will taste like these expensive French "chèvre frais" that you can buy in good delis, at a fraction of the price. Anthotiros: from the words "anthos" and "tiros" meaning "flower" and "cheese" it is a very mild, soft spring cheese made when the sheep pastures are still full of flowers. The closest cheese that I could compare it to is mozzarella although it is quite different. Paximadi I list it because it is an unusual staple food but it is not necessarily something that you would want to take back from your holiday as a present to someone: paximadi is the hard dry bread (it is baked, cut in slices and baked again) that peasants take to the fields and soften with a little water and olive oil. It will keep forever. Herbs The first thing that always strikes me whenever I step off the plane on Crete is the smell of herbs, especially thyme, oregano and marjoram. The whole island smells of herbs and is covered in them. Buy a supply before you leave the island, they will be fresh and cheap. A few herbs are also found only on Crete, like "diktamos" or Cretan dittany (which is supposed to have all sorts of medicinal properties). Honey Crete has been an important honey producer for a good few thousand years (it was a main export item to Ancient Egypt) and the honey is very good, especially the thyme honey. You can find honey in all the shops but it is better (and a little cheaper) to buy it loose from a producer. The honey from Omalos is quite famous. Meat Not something that you would take back with you of course, but I would just like to mention that the meat here (at least the local production meat) is supposed to be as good as it was in Northern Europe some decades ago, before industrial animal husbandry became the rule - this is according to an old German butcher who was here on holiday and told me so. Particularly noteworthy of course is lamb and goat's meat although they are not as cheap as one could think. Fish The Mediterranean is very overfished so do not expect masses of cheap fish. There is good fresh fish but it is expensive. Local drinks Ouzo is NOT at all a Cretan drink, so don't bring that back as a Cretan souvenir! The local "hard drink" is called "raki" or "tsikoudia" and is distilled from what is left over from pressing grapes (there must be a name in English for that stuff but I don't know it), so in fact it is the same as the Italian grappa. It is a pretty strong, pretty clean alcohol, meaning that you'll get drunk on it really quick but will feel halfway human the next day. It is a little difficult to buy because it is mainly home-produced. The bottled stuff called 'raki' or Cretan raki" in the supermarkets is pretty awful and no Cretan would touch it. It is also expensive compared to the Euro 3,50 or 4 per liter that you would pay elsewhere. Here again the same rule might apply as when buying olive oil: if you come across something that you like, ask very nicely if you could buy a bottle of it. Cretan wine is mainly home-made and rarely bottled. Traditionally there is no such thing as red or white wine. The wine is a golden brown colour with a fairly high alcohol content (13 - 14%) and more akin to port or sherry. Whether you like it or not is very much a matter of taste and of course a matter of where you drink it. It is cheap and you may be able to buy it by the liter in your local shops or café. Taste before buying because it can be very good or very bad. Fruit and vegetables Although this is changing most of the fruit and vegetable that you will be able to buy is "what grows here when it grows". Something of a strange experience for many of us who have become used to finding everything all year around in the supermarket. It means that the choices can be limited but it also means that what you will buy will be cheap and fresh and certainly not wrapped in plastic! One unusual vegetable commonly eaten here goes by the generic name of "horta" which literally translates as "grass". This covers all sorts of wild (nowadays some of it is cultivated as well) green stuff, generally bitter tasting, boiled until tender and served with a liberal dash of olive oil and a sprinkle of lemon. This is peasant food par excellence: healthy, tasty and free although if you buy it at a shop some of the more interesting types (stamangathi for example) can command substantial prices because of the work involved in its collection and cleaning.
  • Fantastic apartment, location superb, roof terrace - outstanding. Host, great at all times, very helpful. 5 * service

  • We had a great holiday. Everything was like expected even better. Great hospitality, support and advice. If possibly I will surely come back to the apartment in Almyrida!

    Fanny2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with a hospitable welcome, all amenities are nearby, and the apartment is well laid out for family groups, though I travelled alone on this trip. Stunning views from the picture window, and the terrace. Highly recommend the cafe below for coffee, also. Thank you Panos!

    Lol2018-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay. The town was perfect for a family and the location was perfect. Panagiotis was extremely responsive and helpful. I was a little afraid that we would not have enough room. But, there was plenty of room for 3 adults and two children. I hope to make it back again.

    Mandy2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment in Almyrida is great. Spacious especially with the wonderful roof terrace. It was perfect for siestas in the hot July afternoons. The access to good quality cafes, bars and Almyrida's safe and very pleasant beach is brilliant. We all liked trying out watersports that can be hired and learnt right next door at UCPA - stand-up paddleboarding and catamaran sailing as well as fun on a pedalo. Buses to Kalyves and Chania mean that a car is not necessary here and there a few a few good shops in the village ('The Pear Tree' is great for fresh veg and fruit). But a car can get you to other lovely spots nearby such as Gavalohori and Vamos. Hope to return some time to meet Panos again, plus some of the other lovely people in the area. Stuart, Kate and family

    Stuart2018-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is located in front of Almyrida beach, which is very convenient. You do not even have to put on your shoes to go back to the apartment. The terrace is well equipped and very nice with a beautiful view of the bay. There are many restaurants nearby. Almyrida is a small seaside resort that has to fill up well in summer, but in April the atmosphere was very peaceful. The welcome of Panos was very nice. The cupboards had something to eat on the first morning, which was very convenient as we arrived relatively late. We traveled with 3 children 6months to 6 years and the apartment was perfect for us. In short, we recommend!

    Dounia2018-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Family trip for us, Panos was able to advise us and welcome us with attention. The accommodation correspond to the photos, the facilities are numerous, 2 bathrooms, several pleasant living spaces, including the terrace on the top floor with its sea view. The small village where it is located is rather quiet at this season, if you are looking for a little activity or some places to visit it will be necessary to go there without having to go too far. We are satisfied with our trip and the accommodation of Panos, as well as its availability.

    Alicia2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious apartment just on the beach and in a very safe area and easy, short walk to all shops and bars. Panagiotis was there for all of our questions. Some of the best restaurant which had the best food we ate in all of Greece. Also only a few minute walk from the Archaeology area. The apartment was extremely clean and comfy, and Panagiotis was very easy to be in contact with. Would recommend if staying in Almyrida!!!!!!!!

    The Southern Stone House is a fully-equipped traditional cottage with a spacious innter yard, in the village of Aspro, Chania. It was built in the late 1800s and renovated in 2020 by myself and my father. Our goal was to create a space that is simple, serene and evocative of older times, yet is completely functional in the modern sense. It's located 2km away from the area's main village Almyrida, where you can find some basic stores, restaurants, as well as a couple of beautiful beaches.
    The house consists of a room with basic amenities – full bathroom, kitchen, a dining space and a double bed, as well an open loft with a single bed for a third person. The house also has a spacious, picturesque inner stone yard that can be used for outdoor dining, reading or just relaxing. You can enjoy the shade under the canopy or spend a lazy afternoon in the hammock. A wood screen seperates this listing from a second house in the property, so if your party is larger, check out the availabilites of The Stone House in Aspro (North Side).
    Aspro is a small, tranquil, residential village, surrounded by green, which makes it a perfect destination for people looking to spend some peaceful time away from the city and closer to nature.

    For those who may be planning a family summer vacation and dream of days sitting on the beach, finding a child friendly or family-oriented beach with crystal clear waters might be a desirable setting Armonia Apartments in Almirida.
    This delightful apartment is found on the first floor. It has a twin bedded bedroom and a large living area with two more beds and also a convertible sofa. In the kitchen there is a stove, fridge, kettle, toaster, sufficient crockery, cutlery, pans, glasses, egg cups etc, a separate bathroom with shower and toilet and plenty of wardrobe space. The bedroom has a private veranda that faces to olive groves and white mountains of Crete. Here you can sit in tranquil surroundings, perhaps enjoying the sound of the birds calling to each other amongst the trees. How about a bottle of Mythos, Zorbas or Amstel before embarking on the short walk to the tavernas where you may get a table along the sea. Almyrida is situated on the North coast of Western Crete. It lies to the east of Chania City, approximately 15 Km from the ferry port of Souda and about 25km from the airport. Nearby are the small towns of Kalyves and Vamos. The beautiful city of Chania is a short drive away and to the East is the resort of Georgioupoli and a little further away is the ancient city of Rethymno and then the other major airport at Iraklio. A very short distance away and the backdrop to Almyrida is the imposing range of the White Mountains with peaks in excess of 2,400 metres. Armonia Apartments are found on a quiet lane a short distance away from the village centre and also a few minutes walk from the beach. Within a few minutes you can be walking along quiet tracks surrounded by olive groves. Here you can enjoy the peace interrupted by bird song or the calls of the cicada. As you rise out of the village you will get lovely views of the harbour, the village and the surrounding area. During winter and spring you will be able to appreciate the colour contrast of the white snow on the mountains and the clear blue sky. THE ACCOMMODATION For those who may be planning a family summer vacation and dream of days sitting on the beach, finding a child friendly or family-oriented beach with crystal clear waters might be a desirable setting Armonia Apartments in Almirida. Crete is a place filled with fun things to do for the whole family. No matter what you like to do with your kids when on vacation, Almirida is the place to visit as it has a wide array of options available to you.

But, of course, the beach is the major attraction for visitors during the summer.
    Our neighbourhoud is surrounded by olive trees and gardens that local farmers grow vegetables such as tomatoes ,potatoes,beans,zucchini,eggplants,even aloe Vera.
  • Lilian's place was great - sparkling clean and had some very nice touches. It's a short walk from the beach (but no need for a car or anything) and very close to local shops and cafes. It even had a small balcony with a clothes dryer, which was very useful to dry out our beach clothes! Communication and check-in were extremely smooth and had no problems whatsoever, Lilian was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone!

    Aidan2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Appartment is clean, tidy, elegant and very near to the beach. I would definitely recommend this place for holidays.

    Miguel2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lilian is a great host, has a beautiful house, clean, close to the beach 5 minutes walk, very quite location for families like us. almyrida is 30 minutes from Chania for those who are interested. We loved it and my son who's 3 years old had fun in very shallow and clear water at Almyrida beach Thank you Lilian

    Sid2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lilian's villa is a great accommodation and excellent value if you are looking for somewhere close to Almyrida beach. The location is great and quiet, as the villa is tucked away but still only 10 minutes from the beach. The villa is clean to oustanding standards, there is everything you may need there and plenty of space. It is also a fresh environment with air conditioning, should you need relief from the heat in the summer. Lilian and her daughter were great hosts, very friendly, incredibly attentive and welcoming, we hope to see them again for another holiday in the future! Thank you!!

    Federica2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying in this clean apartment- with the sea,shops and restaurants close by. There are some lovely walks to do close by also

    Pat2016-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • I adore the town because it is very quiet with a few hotels only (mostly villas and apartments), its atmosphere because there is no rush and no fuss at all, and it is not eventful which I like very much, people living there because they are truly nice, helpful and hospitable, olive groves, restaurants, the beach, fantastic views, food, and anything else. I was very happy there, definitely will come back and will be happy to see the same people.

    Sophia2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my friend just had a completely perfect stay at Lilians Appartment. It's nicer than on the pictures and the location is perfect! Lilian is an excellent host and just does everything for her guests! Thanks a lot!

    Norina2015-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely introduction to Crete. Firstly, Lilian's apartment was impeccable. Clean, spacious, and close to all the restaurants and of course to the beach, but away enough to enjoy quiet. The apartment was extremely well equipped (though it could probably use a small oven - a little too hard to eat out every night with a child). Great internet. A wonderful treat to have clean towels brought in, after only a couple of days. As for our hostess Lilian.... A very hospitable and happy lady, happy to assist in any way. Would definately recommend this apartment.

    The well-maintained property EVA offers a magnificent view across the Souda Bay and is situated in a quiet and idyllic location on the slopes of the Apokoronou Cape, some kilometres east of the city of Chania. The village Kambia lies picturesquely on the northern slopes of the Cape, above the beautiful, fine sandy beach and the town Almirida. Kambia used to be a sleepy little village which has now grown into a holiday home community. The nice duplex house lies outside the closed community, in a quiet and calm surrounding with a wonderful panoramic view towards the mountains, across the sea and the Souda Bay. Each part of the duplex house has a separate entrance. The German landlord couple lives in one half of the duplex. The beautiful holiday domicile is set on a natural property which is overgrown with Mediterranean plants and olive trees. The tastefully furnished Maisonette apartment EVA has a ground level entrance. The cosy living room is adjoining to the open kitchen corner and the bath. From the living room there is direct access to the large, roofed terrace with a wonderful sea view. A wooden staircase is leading to the semi-open bedroom on the gallery above the living room. From the bed you also have a nice sea view. At the seashore of Almirida life is pulsating during midsummer. During the other seasons it is more contemplative. Many taverns, cafés, shops and beach bars offer a variety of amenities in close proximity and make a nice change to the quiet location of the holiday house. Cash dispensers are also available here. Chania, the “most beautiful city” on Crete is about 30 km away. Chania is a picturesque and lively city, directly at the sea with a beautiful ancient city centre. Romans, Saracens, Byzantines, Venetians, Genoese and Turks have all left – Chania remained. Their legacy are the winding alleys of the ancient city centre – there are many small places, neat Venetian town houses and other sights and places of interest. ATTENTION: Please notice that there will be additional costs by arrival. Please read the houserules carefully. If you have questions, feel free to contact us.

  • It was a dream vacation! The location of the villa is super! You cannot ask for a better one. We were a party of 8 persons (5 adults, 3 kids), there was plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Renting a car is a wise thing to do if You wish to see the wonderful places on the island. Michael was a wonderful host, giving us tips and information whenever we asked. Thank You for such a wonderful stay! We'll be back:)

    Triin2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What a location! Amazing views. There were 9 of us; it's ideal for groups with kids. The beach is on the doorstep, bring some rock hopping shoes. 5 star sunsets. You won't regret it. You will need a car to explore Crete from here.

    Jason2019-08-14T00:00:00Z

    Pip2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • You will NOT be disappointed in this house. It’s huge and spacious with probably one of the best views is Almyrida. I love the fact that if you want to skip the Almyrida beaches since they can be a bit crowded at times, you have your own personal little beach right in front of the house. We spent a whole afternoon there, all five of us, and it was an absolute blast. The house has all the little special touches needed to make your stay wonderful. It’s a 5 minute walk to the town center where you can eat some of the best food ever and even do a little bit of shopping. Thank you Michael for the beautiful house that made our vacation really special.

    Randy2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is what was described. The check in was wonderful. Host’s communicated well with ya prior to check in to make the transition smooth. Gave us directions and was waiting for us before we arrived. House was gorgeous, lots of privacy and peace. Host left coffee and basic spices which was helpful. Location was great, walking distance to local beach, restaurants and coffee shops. The best was seeing sunset, absolutely serene. I would definitely recommend this house.

  • Our room was lovely and clean with a stunning sea view! Pandi was very welcoming when we arrived and made us feel at home. The pool area was really nice as well as clean. The main town is about a 20 minute walk down which was a lovely walk in, just walking home took a bit longer as it is all up hill! Panagiotis was very sweet and was a great host. Would recommend staying here !
