Villa overview - owner's description

Superb detached villa with own private pool. Not overlooked so you have privacy. 3 minute drive from the beach (half hour walk) or 15 minute walk to fabulous local tavernas in the village.

QUIET LOCATION but not remote! This lovely villa sleeps up to 4 persons in 2 double/twin bedrooms and has a private swimming pool 9 metres x 4.5 metres. British plumbing and WC - no small pipes!

Our guests often comment that this villa is in the perfect location. It is 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 villa is located in a peaceful private olive grove of 4.5 acres (17,000 square metres). It is one of only 5 villas in the olive grove, all of which are owned by us. 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.

Close to the villa are two villages. Almyrida, by the beach, is only a 3 minute drive away or you can walk it in half an hour. Gavalochori, further inland, is only a 1 minute drive away and you can walk there in less than 15 minutes.

BEST HOLIDAY IN YEARS My husband and I had a fabulous time in this villa, one of only 5 private villas on the Saint Basil Olive Grove near Almyrida in Crete. Location is stunning, with incredible views of the Lefki Ori mountains. Dealing with the owner/manager was a pleasure, (he's based in the UK and responds very quickly) and the local cleaners being especially helpful too. We spent 2 weeks here in October 2015 and hired a car for 1 week and just pottered about ourselves for the second week. There is a fabulous restaurant in the centre of the nearest village Gavalochory (I dont think we paid more than 15 euros a head including wine!) and the beach takes only half a hour to walk (though we preferred to get a taxi back!) Don't miss a visit to Chania old town with the leather markets. And we did visit the water park in Limnoupolos despite not having any children with us!
