☀️ NOT OVERLOOKED ☀️ Near Almyrida ☀️ Private Gated Pool ☀️ FREE WiFi

Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Almyrida, Chania Prefecture, Crete
MHTE 1354-13-0251

Ideal for a large group or 2 families on holiday together, the house sleeps up to 8 in 4 double/twin bedrooms. There is a very large patio outside, ideal for ball games. Yet our prices for early and late season are competitive with smaller apartments - so this home is affordable even for 2 people.

The villa shares the Olive Grove with only 4 other villas (also owned by us) but is not overlooked by them so your privacy is protected. Unusually for Crete, there is at least 60 metres between each house, and separated by colour full private gardens. The olive grove is huge (4.5 acres, 17,000 sq metres) and is fully fenced and gated. The road to Almyrida has only light traffic during the day and occasional vehicles at night, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bus...

The villa in it's setting of the olive grove, with private pool, is a wonderfully secluded retreat, there are other villas in the grove but the spacing is such that they do not intrude and the driveway isn't shared. The villa itself we found spacious...More

Additional amenities & feature info
Villa Asteria sleeps groups in comfort, with parties of up to 8 people each having their own bed - no need for pull out or camp beds in the living room.

Or do I have to climb up and down a flight of stairs?4) Will everyone in my party have a proper bedroom? ... Will some have to sleep on camp beds in the living/dining room?

About the neighbourhood
VILLA ASTERIA is situated 2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on north west coast. This is to the east of Souda Bay on the Apokoronas peninsular, about 20 kilometres from the city of Chania and its airport. OUR LOCATION is ideal if you want a quiet family holiday with plenty of sun and sea, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages. Nearby ALMIRIDA VILLAGE has around a dozen restaurants and tavernas, mostly along the seafront, so you can enjoy your meal just a few metres from the waves. We have personally eaten at every restaurant and have never had a poor meal, although perhaps some of the local village wine is a acquired taste! Cooking is invariably home-made Cretan (according to long-hand... more
Getting around
We recommend a local car hire company though it is not absolutely neccesary. There is a very good local taxi service.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: CHANIA: 20.0 km
Ferry: Chania: 20.0 km
The nearest airport is Chania (sometimes written as Hania). This is an easy half-hour drive away, depending on traffic. Chania airport is your easiest option. The alternative airport is Heraklion. Compared to Chania, flights may be slightly cheaper, and there is a wide choice of arrival dates. However, the drive is longer - just over 2 hours - but it is an easy straight road across the island and gives you the opportunity to see more of Crete.
