Hi stewart, hope you are well, we had a lovely time in Crete, the villa is superb you lucky lucky man ha ha. The weather was really good we had one day of rain but that cleared away by early evening, the pool was a bit cold but once you were in it it felt okay, i actually think your villa is in a better position than most because it is not overlooked and has uninterrupted views’ , anyway once again thank you very much. ps we did leave it tidy when we left and didn’t break anything, we were up at 3am to get to the airport, kind regards Jeff n Julie

Halcyon days indeed.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful honeymoon at Villa Halcyon, the photos don't do it justice, believe it or not. The views were stunning; the villa was very comfortable, it had everything you could need; the pool was a good size and very well looked after; it was in a wonderful location, very private but only a short drive to shops and tavernas.

Location

From the Owner

We spent many days searching the whole of western Crete for the perfect location that would provide us with a magnificent sea view, privacy and yet within a short distance of a sandy beach. We designed the villa, with the help of an architect, to provide a home that we would enjoy for holidays and could even retire to.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

7 minutes drive away from the villa is the blue flagged beach resort of Almyrida. The gentle sloping beach make it very safe for small children. The more active holidaymakers can make use of the windsurfing school, take out a catamaran or snorkel off the rocks. Kalives is a 15 mins drive and larger than its sister Almyrida with 3 main stretches of beach. If you prefer a quiet cove there is one just 5 mins drive from us, secluded, picturesque ideal for diving and snorkeling.

Travel:

Car hire is essential. The nearest airport is Chania (40 minutes drive). Heraklion airport is approximately 2 hours away. Highly recommend Car Hire Company is Athens Cars - speak to Babis and tell him we sent you.

Distances:

Local village of Kokkino Chorio: 4 minute drive - George's mini market. Plaka for nearest restaurants, mini market, bakery: 5 minutes drive. Almyrida local blue flag beach and town: 7 minutes drive. Kalives town, beach, restaurants: 15 minutes drive.

Chania town, harbour, shops, cobbled lanes, market, leather stalls, restaurants and excursions: 30 minutes drive.

Facilities

From the Owner

Villa Halcyon is perfectly located for peace and quiet yet it is very convenient to all the local amenities. With restaurants and tavernas only 5 minutes away in Plaka and a sandy beach at Almeryda only another 2 minutes drive further, the villa is never far from any activity. When the evening comes there is nothing nicer than to sit and relax around the private pool with a cool drink and watch the sunset over Souda Bay.
