Everything within walking distance

Having just returned from This beautiful resort totally relaxed and very relectant to leave. I can't praise this little fishing village of Almyrida enough.

The apartment was clean,well equipped and comfortable. There is a good sized swimming pool set in the gardens of the apartment...although it was a little cool for us as it was early in the year to swim.

A perfect base for us to explore the surrounding villages and resorts. The beach is only a 10 minute stroll away, with a variety of shops, mini markets, cash machines and a bakery. Some mornings we sat eating breakfast overlooking the bay with freshly baked bread. Glorious.

If your up to it there is a diving centre and windsurfing for rental. Or do as we did and laze on the sunbeds watching those falling of.

Along the seafront we found many Tavernas and bars all serving excellent Greek cuisine, and to our surprise we had complimentary raki and sweet after dinner. As the waiter told us you have 2 shots only...one for each leg.

I would recommend a trip into Chaniá for shopping and Falassarna to watch the sun set into the sea.

If your looking for relaxtion, a beach holiday, great food and wine all within walking distance of the apartment with beautiful sunsets over the Souda Bay...this is it. We will definitely return.

Lovely once we got in!

  • 4 of 5

Just got home from beautiful crete. The apartment is lovely- very well equipped, clean, modern and spacious. My 4 year old really enjoyed the pool, although she struggled with the walk up the hill on the way back from the beach! The only thing that is needed is a sun umbrella that is not broken as the balcony doesn't get any shade until mid afternoon.

On the down side, we arrived late on Saturday night and struggled to find the apartment. Although the directions Wendy sent us were very detailed, the only sign was for 'Phoenix villas'. Once we had located the correct building, we found there was no key left for us, meaning we had to check into a hotel at 1am! Finally got in at 4 pm the next day after many phone calls. But the rest of our visit went much more smoothly and the cost of the hotel was refunded by the end of our stay.

I would definitely recommend the accommodation and the location, especially for young kids, but I would recommend a car to make the most of seeing the local area with many ruins and beautiful beaches.

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

A 5 minutes easy walk takes you to the blue flagged beach resort of Almyrida. The gentle sloping beach makes it very safe for children. More active holiday makers can make use of the windsurfing school or other boating pursuits. Kalives is a 5 min drive and is slightly larger then Almyrida with 2 big stretches of beaches. The nearby picturesque cove is ideal for snorkeling, diving or just jumping in!

Travel:

Car hire is not essential. The nearest airport is Chania (40 mins drive). Heraklion Airport is approx 1.5hrs drive away. Car hire is possible with Auto Club, Kalives Travel or any of the main companies at both airports.

Distances:

The numorous restaurants, mini-market and selection of shops of almyrida is only 5 min walk away. Kalives town, beach, restaurants, shops and supermarkets: 5 min drive. Chania town, harbour, shops, cobbled lanes, market hall, leather stalls, restaurants and excursions: 25 min drive.

Further Details:

45 min drive away is a fabulous water park and go carts. In Chania you will find many museums and historic churches off quiet squares. There are many boat trips on offer from the historic harbour area as well as many fabulous restaurants. For the young at heart there are many bars and discos. Chania also provides a selection of tourist shops to top boutiques. The large historic covered market hall provides a different shopping experience one not to be missed. Above Chania towards the airport side are many coffee houses and restaurants that provide breathtaking views over the city. The villa is situated very well for exploring the many picture postcard villages in the mountains and around the coast. Only a short drive from the villa takes you to the lovely Lake Kournas (20 mins), Avocado Farms and villages (25 mins), and for longer drives take one of the many scenic drives through the white mountains to the south coast and bath in the Lybian Sea. There are many half and full day drives available.
