About the property

Villas in Almyrida (Almirida) near Chania, Crete, Greek Islands - Peaceful Countryside Location, 4 Villas Within A Gated And Fenced Private Olive Grove

Perfect accommodation for large family groups, friends reunited and wedding guests! Why stay in an impersonal hotel when all of your group can be together in 4 large villas in our huge private olive grove! Beach and restaurants only 20 minute walk, (3 minutes by car) and the nearest village is only 1 km to the centre. Booked together as a single group you have exclusive use of the olive grove and all facilities. This is a great time for weddings and group gatherings as the prices from low cost airlines such as Ryanair are typically around £120 return (UK airports to Chania).

There is NOWHERE ELSE in this area that offers similar exclusive villa accommodation in a private olive grove. You might be able to find a few villas together in a village, but they are unlikely to be exclusive and you certainly won't have 17,000 square metres of space to play in (equivalent to 4 Premiership football pitches).

We can accommodate a maximum of 32 guests in various combinations in our 4 villas, but don't be shy to ask about fewer numbers. You don't have to rent all 4, you can have 2 or 3 if you wish. Pricing is according to occupancy and the time of year so please contact us for a quote.

Our guests often comment that our villas are in the perfect location: within walking distance from two villages, close enough to enjoy their facilities but not too close to be disturbed by barking dogs, crowing cockerels and noisy human nightlife that happens in any and every Cretan village or town. The olive grove is secure, being fenced and hedged by colourful oleander, and surrounded by olive trees. It is the perfect base to explore the picturesque Apokoronas area on foot or by car, with its tiny white hamlets nestled on green mountainsides. Apokoronas is a designated area of natural beauty, protected in a similar way to a UK National Park. At all times there are breath-taking views of the White Mountains which are snowcapped until late May. Literally on your doorstep there are numerous foot-trails through this most spectacular area of Crete, a genuine walker’s paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Gorgeous restful villa set in backdrop of stunning olive grove. Absolutely wonderful week - and I advise to book 2 - this is just a fantastic place to spend time retreating from the busy world and relaxing fully with a view to envy. Congrats to Basil Olive Grove for offering competitive prices but not compromising quality.

Villa in peaceful location amongst olive groves. This very nice villa was exactly as advertised. It is set in a secluded location but near enough to a local village and seaside town. We had very young children but the gated swimming pool makes it safe. The views from the upstairs bedrooms are superb.

Just spent a week in this villa and had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay. The accommodation was very clean and well maintained, with ample space and air conditioning in all rooms. Having your own pool is a great bonus and we made the most of this every day after a morning's exploring.
