Villa overview - owner's description
Crete is one of the most beautiful of the Greek Islands and is the most southerly.
Aloni Villas are three beautiful, privately owned villas nestling in the mountainside near Kalo Chorio, in NE Crete, overlooking mountainsides and the Mirabello Bay. Only 10 minutes drive from the cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos.
Aloni Villas offer the ideal holiday in a perfect location for those seeking peace and tranquillity, with all modern comforts. Yet the villas are within a short distance of a bustling town, wonderful beaches and traditional Cretan tavernas.
Each villa has its own private swimming pool, terrace, outside dining area, BBQ and parking area and is fully air-conditioned.
Villa Jasmine has 3-bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom, sleeping six people. Villas Hibiscus and Poppy both have 2-bedrooms with two bathroom/shower rooms, sleeping four people.
Whether you are a couple, a family of four or six, a party of friends, a group of colleagues, newly married, or just lovers of clear blue seas and sun who want an unforgettable holiday experience, then we recommend that you rent a villa from us. Our villas are all beautifully designed and equipped to give a holiday of your dreams.
Crete has so much to offer. The sandy beaches along the coastline are a perfect way to spend time; enjoying the sun and a swim in the crystal blue Mediterranean waters. And for the adventurous tourists, Crete is the ideal place. There are many walking paths in the local countryside and mountains and several gorges offering trekking and hiking experiences plus, of course, the unique Cretan archaeological sites, making the island a perfect holiday destination throughout the year.
Crete still retains plenty of local cultural traits, such as its own music and dialect, as well as the wonderful Cretan cuisine. Enjoy a meal in a traditional taverna by the sea, tasting local wine or relax with a glass of ouzo and a selection of meze and finish with a little raki or Metaxa.
Aloni Villas are located near the villages of Kalo Chorio and Istro. They have only recently been completed, all with individual private pools, and are located high up with views over the Mirabello bay and the local forest, which are truly stunning. They offer spacious accommodation and have been decorated and furnished in a tasteful modern design to a high standard.
The villas are an hour’s drive from the international airport of Heraklion.
Kalo Chorio is a small village, 10 minutes drive to the south of the town of Agios Nikolaos, nestling attractively in the midst of a verdant hilly landscape, where olive groves and local shrubs are abundant.
There are three main beaches all a short distance of the village welcoming sun-worshippers, wind-surfers and scuba divers. With clean and pristine waters, from golden sands to a quiet and long pebble beach, all the beaches have modern facilities including cafes, sunbed rentals and toilets. There are also many another blue flag awarded beaches within a short drive. It is also possible to explore sheltered coves along the coastline.
Kalo Chorio maintains a traditional feel. It is a small village with tavernas, bars (many with internet access) and shops close by.
The village of Istro is a short distance away on the site of the ancient town of Istrona, remains of which are still being uncovered.
The cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos is only 7 kilometers away with bustling cafes and shops around the port area, marina and lake. Enjoy the vibrant night scene with many restaurants and bars.
Also within an easy drive are Elounda, Plaka with trips to Spinalonga Island, Kritsa, Sitia, Knossos, Lassithi Plateau and many other towns and hidden villages all having something special to offer.
A number of luxury hotels have been built in recent years in the locality, proof of the wonderful holiday experience to be found in this part of Crete.
Each villa has its own swimming pool, parking area and terraces. They include covered pergola areas, BBQs, sunbeds and outside dining areas.
They all have mosquito nets to patio doors and windows, air-conditioning, fully equipped open-plan modern kitchens (which include oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dish washer, toaster, kettle, citrus juicer, blender and cafetiere), utility room (which include washing machine, iron and ironing board) and safes.
All bedrooms have their own bath/shower rooms, hair dryers, generous wardrobe space and full height mirrors.
