Apartment overview


Located on the edge of the quiet seaside village of Almyrida in the Apokoronas region of Western Crete, Petina’s House forms part of a small complex of apartments and is only a 400 metre flat walk away from the beach, shops and tavernas. The landscaped gardens contain a shared pool, with separate shallow areas for young children and non swimmers, as well as a play area and shared barbecue. Despite being close to the village, the property enjoys views over the surrounding hillside and olive groves. Petina’s House is on the first floor and is accessed via an external staircase which is not enclosed. It also has four external balconies, two at the front and two at the back which gives a choice of either sun or shade throughout the day. All the balconies have horizontal bars but are open and therefore access to the balconies should be carefully controlled (please see photographs)


The House has a large living area that includes a kitchen/diner and lounge area. There is WiFi, a Satellite TV, a DVD, and an I-Pod docking station/radio the DVD player also plays CD’s. The two sofas convert into one double and one single sofa bed if required, giving a maximum occupation of 6. The kitchen incorporates an electric hob and oven, a fridge/freezer, a washing machine, a kettle, a toaster, a microwave, a teapot and a ground coffee maker as well as a full range of crockery and cutlery, including plastic crockery and glassware for use around the pool. The shower room incorporates a large lighted mirror over the washbasin and a dual shower head.

There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds. Both have spacious fitted wardrobes and mirrors as well as bedside cabinets and reading lights. There is also an ironing board, an iron, a hairdryer, a clothes horse and a baby bath in the house and there are four sunloungers for your personal use. Cots and high chairs can be rented separately.

All rooms have air conditioning.


Almyrida is only 35 minutes drive from Chania Airport and around 1.75 hours drive from Heraklion Airport. In order to get the most out of your holiday, car hire is recommended but not essential. Local travel agencies organise several excursions on a daily basis during the summer season, in addition to the local facilities described below. A taxi from Chania airport will cost around 50 euros and there are local car hire firms who will rent on a daily basis

Local interest

Petina’s House is only 400 metres from the beachfront, shops and tavernas. On the beachfront, there are watersports and excursions available for hire, including windsurfing, kayaking, dinghy sailing and snorkeling. The area is also well known for a variety of interesting walks, both locally and in the mountains and there are details available in the apartment. Cycling and mountain biking are other popular activities undertaken locally. There are also many places of local historical interest, principally at Aptera where there is a Roman excavation and an old Turkish fort.

Further afield

Chania is the largest city in the area which is a old Venetian port with a spectacular harbour. As well as boasting many tourist attractions, Chania is large enough to provide for most shopping requirements and also has several cinemas.

There are horse riding centres nearby within an hour and also Limnoupolis Water Park on the outskirts of Chania, approximately 45 minutes away.

The ancient Minoan settlement at Knossos is around two hours away and there are spectacular walks in the White Mountains close by including the famous Samaria Gorge.


Petina’s House is an ideal holiday solution for families and friends wanting a quiet relaxing environment, whilst still having the option of a variety of activities within a short distance of their accommodation.

Almyrida itself is a relaxing resort suited to couples and families and does not particularly suit groups or young singles looking for large clubs and all night activity.

If you wish to book for a non standard period, we will be able to accommodate your requirements.

Also, all bookings receive a welcome pack which includes bread, milk, coffee and sugar. If you have any additional requirements, we will be happy to try to accommodate them for you.

No.7 is a lovely apartment with all the facilities we could have wanted. The grounds and the pool are great - for us and our young daughter and the apartment is close to the centre of the 'town'. Very pleased.

Petina's House is our second home in Western Crete and since discovering the relaxing and friendly environment of Almyrida and the surrounding area on holiday in 2004, we purchased our apartment in 2008, hoping to encourage as many people as possible to share our enjoyment of this idyllic place.
