About the Owner
I live in England with my wife and 2 children. My wife and I both work, but spend most of our holidays in Crete, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country. We also share the villa with my parents.
Joan purchased this villa in 2006
Why Joan chose Chania area
We love Kokino Chorio because of the fantastic facilities in the area. The views are amazing, overlooking Souda Bay. There are some beautiful beaches and Almiriyda boasts a great range of bars and restaurants, which you find most of the locals come to. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Chania airport less than an hours drive away. Chania town is well worth a visit with its old town and small streets to explore. There are plenty of shops and tavernas hidden away.
What makes this villa unique
The property itself is just a ten minute walk to the tiny village of Plaka, where you can enjoy a quiet drink with the locals. Almiriyda is a further ten minutes walk which boasts a beautiful beach and tavernas. The Almiryda Bay hotel has a roof top terrace with a pool, where you can enjoy a beautiful meal whilst the kids play in the pool and the views are fantastic. The property also provides peace and quiet, being set in its own private grounds and only a handful of villas surrounding, you can relax and enjoy knowing that the children are safe.
