Armeni, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Villa Galania, Armeni, Crete *** Featured in Sunday Times Europe`s 100 Sexiest Summer Villas ***

Set on a small hill above the village of Armeni but only 800 metres from the village square, Villa Galania is ideally placed to enjoy the rural idyll whilst still being within reasonable walking distance of local shops and tavernas and just ten minutes by car from the sandy beaches of Kalives. Parking the car for the first time and then walking up past a small copse of Holme Oak trees where a hammock has been slung and around the corner of the villa, it is easy to imagine you have stepped into a page of Harper's Bazaar or Vogue The pale pastel rose facade of the villa and beautiful pool at one with the serenely peaceful backdrop of rural Crete and the White Mountains which may still have snow during Easter Holidays in Crete.

Additional amenities & feature info
Although the villa was only recently completed the young owners have created a very atmospheric period style property with the skillful use of simple local materials. Covered balconies and terraces provide shade and succour from the heat of the sun, whilst the villas stone faced doorways and rough hewn timbered ceilings add an authentic touch of the past. Despite the historic Crete flavour, Villa Galania is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the owners really have ticked all the boxes down to the smallest detail.Outside around the 9m x 4m pool and adjoining children pool, there's a huge amount of living space including a smart alfresco cover dining area, a lounge area, a table soccer, plus a rusticated covered barbecue complete with Cretan oven and a small fridge for d... more

About the neighbourhood
Something of a foodies paradise, the village of Armeni is notable for its large shady plain trees lining the main street where you will find a choice of simple cafeneons and three excellent tavernas. There is also a small mini -market and amazingly, a well stocked delicatessen with wonderful local cheeses, yoghurt and charcuterie as well as a large choice of frozen fish! Of a morning, fresh bread is delivered to the cafeneon on the small triangular central square, you`ll see what we mean!Kalives village (just 5min drive away) is still very much a Greek village that has taken tourism in its stride and the bustling main street reflects the status quo with local shops, mini markets, tavernas and cafes happily doing business with all and sundry.
