Villa overview

(Other listings for this villa)

The villa sleeps up to 8 persons in 2 double and 2 twin bedrooms and has a private swimming pool. However the villa is also competitively priced for 2 to 4 people because price is based on occupancy. For people in wheelchairs or with limited mobility, the downstairs double bedroom is ideal, being next to the downstairs shower room and W/C with commode available. British plumbing and WC - no small pipes!

Villa Asteria is of the same design and layout as our other two villas nearby (Helios and Angelos) in the same private olive grove so if you wish you could hire several villas together. Maybe a wedding or a family get together.

Our guests often comment that these villas are in the perfect location. They are 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS WITH SMALL CHILDREN! This villa has a downstairs kitchen which looks out directly onto the gated pool. This means you can see your children in the pool while you are preparing lunch! Many other villas in the area have not been designed with holidaymakers like you in mind as they have an upstairs kitchen which means you may have to balance a meal and a drink on a tray while walking down a flight of stairs with a toddler following behind you or under your feet! We designed this feature BEFORE the houses were built - you are not an afterthought!

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.

A perfect fully equipped and well presented Villa, with lovely swimming pool. Extremely quiet location set in an Olive grove. About 5 minutes drive to the small coastal town of Almyrida which has a good selection of tavernas and a nice beach. An ideal base to visit North west Crete and more.
Reply from RentavillaCrete
Thank you Richard for your lovely review! We are pleased you enjoyed the secluded (but not remote) aspect of Villa Asteria which is perfect for family holidays of up to eight guests. Another nice thing about Asteria isthat it has the biggest patio area of all our 4 villas because we originally had to move the swimming pool from being built directly...
