Mimis Villa Sleeps 6 (3 Bedrooms)

Mimis Villa is a unique combination of cosiness and creativity. It’s modern aesthetics and earthly colours create an inviting atmosphere. A mind blowing collection of books, that can astonish even the toughest book aficionados, promises to keep you company as you relax during the afternoon hours. The two level villa, has a ground level entrance but as soon as you enter the house and walk through the living room, you will find yourself standing in a higher level balcony with a heartbreaking view. The uniqueness of the mountain ground inspired the architecture to design the creative unevenness of the villa. The picturesque view of the sea and the mountains, is extremely welcoming and promises to offer you unforgettable memories! The 2 level, 3 bedroom villa offers the ideal spaces, for families with children or a group of 6 friends.

A luxury villa in a wonderful part of Crete

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and well equipped with high quality bed linen, towels, air con etc and a good stock of basics in the kitchen. The fruit bowl and local wine was a lovely touch. Alex was very helpful throughout the booking process and when we were there.

There was plenty of room for 5 of us from 3 generations of our family, and the multiple terraces mean you can use different areas at different times of the day. It feels secure with the security gates. The pool area is lovely too - comfy loungers and several umbrellas. The pool is quite deep so not great for non-swimmers and kids will need arm-bands.

The area is lovely - both Almyrida and Kalyves have fantastic beaches and restaurants. The tripadviser ratings for restaurants are a good place to start - we went to Provlita and Il Forno in Kalyves several times, and Dimitris in Almyrida was also good. And Lagos for authentic home cooked food. Another top tip is the restaurant in the square in Gavalachori - probably our favourite meal of the whole trip. All the restaurants are very child friendly and have high chairs etc.

The villa is near Kera beach but we didn't really use it as it was rocky and not so well equipped as Almyrida and Kalyves (though there is a little bar there for drinks and snacks). Personally I wouldn't fancy walking to Almyrida or Kalyves as there is no pavement but some people may not mind. We hired a car and it is an easy 5 minute drive with plenty of easy parking in both towns. There is a taxi company in the middle of Almyrida and it is only 6/7€ back to the villa.

Overall, a lovely restful holiday and a place we would definitely recommend.
