Breathtaking View Home is located 750 meters (walking distance) away from the sandy beach of Almirida Village, Chania Crete Greece. Cosy Home is a house of 95 m2. The house can accomodate up to 5 individuals.
Villa Mytrto provides a traditional stone built house, which is located on a hill, over village Almyrida in the old traditional settlement of Agios Vasileios. It was built around the mid nineteenth century by our grandfather Kyriako. A hundred years later, the residents gradually started leaving and the settlement was deserted. The house was abandoned as all the rest of the houses were and went into ruins. Our parents Kostas and Stella, drawn by their vision to revive it, they started renovating it, a procedure which was continued and completed by us, Niko, Patty and our daughter Myrto. The Villa provides a bedroom with a double bed and an undivided space (including a kitchen, sitting room, dining room, a low ceiling loft and a grape crushing press) where three people can be comfortably accommodated.

  • We spent 10 wonderful days in Patty's house. She is on the hill with very nice view from the terrace. You can go down to the village / beach and walk up, but you still have about twenty minutes to go up (with the children). Otherwise, a car seems to me very recommended in the corner. The beach in the area is small and quiet, very nice. The city of Chania is half an hour away, a 40 minute drive to Rethymnon. We would gladly have stayed longer. The village of Almyrida is a small seaside resort with some small shops and several restaurants. We find all the necessary, and the rest to the neighboring village.

  • The house is very nice. We really enjoyed the rooms, the tasteful decor and the terrace with the great view. The communication and the check with Michael went smoothly, the welcome was warm and the tips valuable. We can only recommend!

    Dominique2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A very tasteful house. When we say it, we were very surprised that it is so beautiful. The view, the peace, the atmosphere, everything wonderful. Paty is a very pleasant and correct hostess. Thank you for the great time. Monika and Anna

  • We were greeted by Michael who was really very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. The description of the home is really consistent with that of the ad we really had a great time. The beach of Almeryda is actually 15 minutes walk you will just climb a good hill when you go back to the home otherwise 2 min drive or there was plenty of room for this parked (walk to go to beach the first week by car for the 2nd) The view from the terrace is really beautiful. There is everything you need near bar restaurant and small Market to do your shopping nevertheless I advise you to do your shopping in a hyper because much cheaper (30 min by car). If I had one point to question is that we would have liked that there is a cleaning service at the end of the first week just for at least vacuumed because on returning from the beach we brought back a little bit of sand in the house. Thank you again for this stay we had a great holiday as a young couple (26 and 24 years) the place is really very relaxing and far from the big tourist crowds in this period in any case from late August to early July. Thanks again Michael

  • Everything was absolutely perfect at Tasos and Christina's. house. From communication to the welcime. They are great for giving advice on life in Greece. The accommodation is just lovely, tastefully decorated and very functional. This is a very friendly loft space 20 steps from the beach of Almyirida. Several good cafes and restaurants are in the immediate area. A small supermarket next to the house too. There was even a Smart TV for watching movies at night. We could not ask for more for our stay in Crete. I strongly recommend Tasos'House and would definitely stay here again if I come back to the islands. Ilaria

  • Amazing location next to the beach. You can change in the room, take just minimum stuff to the beach, very convenient. Also all restaurants and shops are in walking distance. The house is stylish stone house, newly renovated. The host is very friendly. Highly recommended to everyone, especially families.

    David2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice, very clean and full equipped. It doesnt take long before you feel your like home. We liked the location because it was calm and since there a few place we wanted to go in Crete like Chania, Heraklio, Elafonisi Beach we felt like the location was perfect to travel and also near nice villages and taverns. Tasos also left a very nice book with his recommendations such as restaurants which is a nice touch and I strongly recommend you follow as the nearest restaurant are tourist catch, expenssive and not so good. However Tasos recommendations will bring you to vey nice places and for cheap. I could go on and on but Ill just say this place is a no brainer stop looking and book for a great experience. Thank you Tasos.

    Christina2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Heartwarming welcome . House perfectly clean and suitable for a family of 4. In addition it is very well located. Near the sea and all amenities

    Delph2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • A beautifully restored traditional house, you feel like a local staying here, with all the facilities and toiletries provided so you don’t have to shop for anything but food. The lovely neighbour gave us a home grown cucumber- delicious! All our questions were answered very promptly, we got used to the power surges knocking out the electricity most mornings which was quickly rectified by flicking a switch and the air conditioning was very quiet, efficient and welcome.

    Christina2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodation near a beach, restaurants nearby. Friendly host. Good tips for visiting the area. Very good responsiveness in message exchanges. Accommodation according to the description, pleasant terrace in the morning and evening, well equipped (fresh water on arrival, cupcakes), shampoo, shower gel and more to bring comfort to the traveler!

    Chania, Greece

    The apt has a fully equipped kitchen and I think anything you need for your holidays! Every year we try to renew and renovate our apts making them prettier and more comfortable for our guests.. Our neighborhood is quiet with friendly and smiling people.. My family lives near by, so for anything you need it's easy to reach us!
    Perched on the side of the small hill of Almyrida, overlooking its Bay, stand the Villas Dina. A glorious panoramic view is the great bonus of those hilltop apartments, by day of White Mountains and the sandy beaches and by night of the superb sunsets. One of our apartments is No 2.. The open plan design of the living room and kitchen affords a lovely feeling of spaciousness and comfort. Patio doors provide access to the covered dining terrace which is just the perfect place to watch the magnificent sunsets over the Bay of Almirida. It has a well fitted kitchen and an inner hall leads to the two air conditioned bedrooms. The one has a double bed with patio door to a covered terrace and the other has two single beds. Also there is a sofa bed in the living room which can sleep one person. Only 3 minutes away, you will find excellent sandy beaches safe for the children and offer good opportunity for swimming, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. You can also hire wind surfers and sailing boats for day trips around the peninsular.
  • Spectacular sea view

    Jarmo2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis is such a great host, very responsive and attentive with her guests. The apartment is beautiful and very clean, was perfect for our vacation in Crete, at walking distance from the beach and local restaurants and shops in Almyrida, also a perfect location for day trips in Crete. The balcony offers amazing views of the gulf, it was our favourite spot to relax looking at the beautiful surroundings and to watch the sunsets! We would definitely love to return there!

    Andreia2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say anything negative about Artemis or her property. Artemis is a thoughtful and communicative host who keeps her properties well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location we stayed in is perfect with a wonderful view across the small bay of Almyrida with beautiful sunsets. It is close enough to the town for easy walking to the beach or shops but just far enough away to not be bothered by any traffic or noise. It’s also very close to Chania and a number of lovely villages. We loved our visit to Crete and will be going again!

    Graham2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment and the view is better than the pictures. Artemis is a great host and Almyrida a lovely place to visit.

    Richard2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • All is perfect, especially the fantastic terrace where surely everyone will spend most of the time. I confirm all the positive comments of other guests. Consider that there is not washing machine and the nearer laundry is not in Almyrida but only in Kalives, the nearby village. The apartment is located at the top of a hill and the road to reach it from the beach is rather steep although short, so it is not advisable for very elderly people or people with handicap if you don't want to take the car every day.

    Giovanni2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis runs the apartments with her sister, Dina and her parents live next door and are always around to help with anything but are not intrusive. Artemis and Dina are lovely ladies and keep the apartments spotless. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back again.

    Liz2017-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing. With excellent views of the water from the large balcony. The Almyrida itself is a nice little seaside resort, with a very good and child-friendly beach and a number of nice restaurants along the beach. The area is scenic and we went for several lovely trips. In the apartment is a brochure with Almyrida walks. We can highly recommend them. Throughout a wonderful place we can warmly recommend

    Merete2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Where can I start! We stayed at apartment number 2. Dina and Artemis both made us extremely welcome, they were always available. There was a complementary bottle of wine for us when we arrived and everything in place for a relaxing holiday and atmosphere. Artemis went through a lot of effort to get me some cider vinegar when they had run out in the health shop. They were both very friendly without being invasive, nothing was too much trouble. The apartment itself was stunning, comfortable beds, clean with lots of space and the beds and towels were changed every two days. The view from the balcony was indeed stunning, I feel it was one of the highlights of the holiday and we sat every night watching the sunset. It was difficult to leave such a peaceful setting! The apartment is away from the road, so its very peaceful at night. The journey into town/beach was minutes away, you could either walk down the road or go down a track, either way it’s a pleasurable walk. There are shops, supermarkets, a bus station and all amenities for tourists. We didn’t have a car but got around by taxi/bus and visited lovely places- Vamos is a stunning village not far away. We also walked into Plaka which is another lovely little village which is 20 minutes walk up the hill.

You are also spoilt for choice if you want to eat out. I had an amazing massage on the beach from a lovely man called Rashmir , very professional and decadent. N.B. Pack a tea towel as Greek accommodations don’t seem to have them.

    Anemos, ideally located on the edge of the pretty fishing village of Almyrida and attractively furnished in shades of sand, sea and sunshine gold belongs to the magnificent SK Place complex of three independent villas each one offering the utmost privacy for a serene and atmospheric stay in enchanting Crete.
    The villa is as welcoming inside as it is striking from the outside. Wooden floors, rich fabrics and warm colors provide the ideal environment for a selection of family-owned antique furniture, while glass-enclosed marble bathrooms add modern refinement. What’s more, for those who want to steam and polish their cares away, the villa offers a steam room for six while the fitness friends who do not wish to break away from their healthy lifestyle habits, can head to the mini gym for a morning practice before taking breakfast on the pergola shaded pool deck. If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful villa, there’s so much to do and see – the town is a great place to spend some time and relax with a cold drink watching the world go by, while if lying on the beach doing very little is your thing, you’ll only have to venture five minutes from your doorstep before soaking up some sunrays.
    Crete is a fascinating blend of history, legend, myths and a thriving folklore. The hospitality of its people with their infectious love of life and enjoyment of simple pleasures is unsurpassed. With the magnificent White Mountains as a backdrop and unspoiled lush green landscape, the Apokoronas region of North West Crete is an area of outstanding natural beauty filled with wildlife, an abundance of wild flowers, herbs, olive trees, citrus groves and a wide range of organically grown fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce is available daily from local markets while restaurants and tavernas offer a choice of international cuisine or traditional home cooked specialties typical of the healthy “Mediterranean Diet”. Almirida is an ideal base for exploring the many picturesque inland villages, dramatic mountain gorges and some of the island’s best beaches and sheltered bays nearby.

The sandy beaches, good weather, beautiful hinterland and the friendliness of Almyrida mean that many visitors return year after year; and some two or three times a year. Here at the Armonia Apartments you can enjoy all the facilities of the village and the comfort of the pleasant apartments and studios. Almirida is an ideal centre for exploring the Apokoronos area of Crete as well as other areas of the island. The area is beautiful and attracts walkers in late winter and spring and again in late summer and autumn. Birdwatchers and botanists are also attracted by the wealth and diversity of the area. But, of course, the beach is the major attraction for visitors during the summer.
    My neighbourhood is in a quite location but so close to all the facilities! It is surrounded by olive groves,wild cretan cactus figs,lemon trees and walnut and avocado trees..
  • Great tour around the town of Negombo. Throughly enjoyed the Fish Market and the Dosa at the end !

  • Basic needs are present, location is ok without pretensions! Everything is going well from the apartment ... and Lilian is very friendly and welcoming .. !!

    Roland2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice experience! Lilian was great at communicating and was very accommodating. The place was quite clean and a cleaning service would come every few days. Very close to the beach and a few nice supermarkets! Wonderful stay, would recommend to anyone :)

    Elly2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect apartment for 1-2 people looking for a relaxing holiday in NW Crete. The place is spotless, with regular cleaning service, there is a nice patio for breakfast and the beach/restaurants are a short walk away. The host Lilian is very friendly and quick to respond to queries.

    Tom2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was the perfect place to stay ! Not very far from many interesting places and also the beach. Lilian was very kind and pleasant to discuss with, she was also very regarding to our needs and comfort. The apartment have everything needed for a peaceful and practical stay and of course you’re not very far (3’ walking) from the center of the village when you can find good food and a nice beach. Really appreciated and recommend this one to every couple that wants to stay in this place for a few days.

    Carlos2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful flat very close toshops, restaurants and walkable distance to the beautiful beach. Very quiet at night and comfortable sleeping arrangements.

    Kennedy2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Communication with Lilian was as smooth as it can be, very fast to answer our messages. The apartment was very clean and it is like in the pictures. Very well equipped against mosquitoes with nets in every window, which allowed us to spend one week of September without using the aircon because we could have the windows opened. Very well located if you plan to drive around the island or spend some time in Almyrida Beach, just 5 minutes walking. Supermarkets and restaurants are located at walking distance, and parking is very easy. We had a wonderful time both at Lilian's, and in Crete!

    Pepe2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lillian's apartments are so beautiful, clean, and a quick walk to the beach and main Almyrida (with amazing restaurants). She setup airport transfers for us, was very quick with communication, and even offers maid service. It was so nice to have our own space to come "home" to every day. Don't look anywhere else, this is the perfect place.

  • This a superb place for a family of 4 or 2 couples, very clean and with great amenities and a wonderful pool garden. The nearby beach (almost 1 km) is nice but the sea gets rough when it is windy. There is a very good food market within walking distance (800 m) but the terrain is pretty stiff for carrying bags. In general you need a car to move around.

  • We’ve stayed in Almyrida before but never in an AirBnb. Giorgos’ home was beautiful - the perfect combination of traditional Greek and modern comfort. It’s within a 2 minute walk of all things necessary - supermarkets, pharmacy, restaurants and of course the beach! The balcony was a gorgeous addition and the well-equipped kitchen allowed us to cook our own meals occasionally. The air conditioning was a lifesaver too. Overall, if you’re looking for a place to stay that’s got everything you want/need on your doorstep but is also lovely enough to spend time inside, then this really fits the bill!

    Becca2019-09-09T00:00:00Z

    Steve2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is great! Modern clean and comfortable. Location is excellent. Host George is very nice and helpful! Thabk you George

    Mpampis2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • George was really hospitable and really kind. We were late for our check in, but he was really polite and we had a warm welcome. The kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and cooking equipment, more than you'd ever need, but fantastic for people looking to self cater. We had no issues with the washing machine once we'd figured out how to work it. There is space for hanging clothes outside the balcony, and these will of course dry quickly, because you're in Crete. The apartment itself is spacious and it's located in a great place, just 1 minute walk away from the beach and restaurants. I highly recommend George as a host!

    Prodromos2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent!!!!! Our stay was wonderful. The village had everything we could possibly want (supermarket, organised beach with sunbeds and free areas, tavernas, cafeterias, pharmacy ,etc). The room is 100 meters from a beautiful beach. The room looked and indeed was very clean and tidy with modern and practically new and unused furniture. It had everything that promissed and more. George was very kind and friendly as also the neighbors that gave us advice for trips and where to eat. I find it impossible to find something negative to say. These vacations for me and my family will always be remembered. Highly recommended. Will come again for sure!!!!

  • We were very happy with our stay at Joan's place. We had a perfect weekend. The house, the nature around and the view are amazing! Joan is a perfect host, she cared a lot and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I would come back any time!

    Julius2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don’t do the view justice. This is an amazing place up in the hills, surrounded by mountains, views of the sea and the beautiful bell sounds of sheep wandering around. Joan and John are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make sure your time spent is relaxing. From the wonderful breakfast of bread and homemade jam, to lovely chats with Joan, you are sure to enjoy your time. Close enough to some restaurants and in great proximity for exploring central and western Crete. Chania is 30minutes a way. All in all, I will say that if you want a bit of a “closer to nature” stay coupled with their lovely hospitality, then Alpha House is the place.

    Jenn2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are very friendly and help in everything, the house is great, with light, very clean large kitchen, gardens, the room is ideal size and has a private bathroom, all very good. I would surely stay there again.

  • Joan is one of the warmest and most caring hosts I have met! Our stay was truly idyllic as she is very caring. If you seek tranquility and a place where you feel at home, Joan's home is the place to go. Thanks again !!

    Gwendoline2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is such a lovely, kind and warm presence and as soon as you meet her, makes you feel like you are at home! She is 68 years old and still have beautiful dreams and willingness about life. I stayed in one of her rooms which was very comfortable and nice decorated with a spacious ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. The balconies were the highlight of this lovely house in the natural environment with amazing view to the White mountains. Highlight was also her delicious breakfast with her homemade bread and jam which she makes with so much love. I felt the area that the house is located very familiar, with nice taverns and local café-bars only 5 minutes drive to Plaka. I was so lucky to find her and share together life stories. I would return back for sure and soon I hope :))

    Angela2019-07-19T00:00:00Z

  • Maria’s holiday home is very modern, comfortable and well equipped. (Loved the rainforest shower and the big patio area.) It was well located, about 10 minute walk to the beach but far enough away from the noise in the evenings. The thoughtful extras were really appreciated. We hope to return at some time in the future.

    Jackie2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very clean and modern. Just like in the pictures! The location is 2 minutes by car from the village, which we really liked. Top value for money. Maria answers really fast and is very eager to help us with a nice carefree holiday! Gladly again :)

  • We had a great time. Maria answered directly and the communication was good. We spontaneously stayed a few hours longer. Everything was great, only recommended! In the evening you can go to Food to the beach in about 10 minutes walk

    Leonie2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a sparkling clean oasis. Its very comfortable, quiet but only a few minutes walk to the beach. It was great to sit out on the patio having a drink looking out to sea as the sun went down, listening to the sounds of the bells tinkling on the goats across the road. Highly recommended.

    John2019-08-25T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you Georgios and Natalia for the extraordinary hospitality. They were happy to help and advise us when we needed it. However, they were also very discreet. The apartment was very comfortable and quiet, equipped with everything you need, also in the kitchen. It's important to us because we like cooking. Outside view of the sea and mountains and a beautiful sunset. Quiet and charming place. Andrzej and Kalina

  • The apartment was very nice, clean and just as pictured with excellent kitchen facilities. Georgios and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is in a quiet residential area a short distance from the centre of Plaka where there are two supermarkets, several tavernas and even a craft beer bar. The beach at Almyrida is 3/4 mile away (only a 15 minute walk although slightly longer coming back as uphill)! It is ideal for families as the sea is very shallow for quite a distance out from the beach. We enjoyed our stay at Georgios’s apartment and would definitely stay there again.

Almirida is a small pretty seaside resort to the east of the bay of Souda. Situated about 24 kilometers or 15 miles west of Chania. The resort boasts an impressive crescent-shaped bay, and a reasonable selection of tavernas, café bars, and shops, which stretch through the village. In the evening, life revolves around the waterfront tavernas and bars. The atmosphere is more low key than many of the more well-known resorts. The nearby village of Kalives can be reached along a pathway 4km away, where you will find a wider variety of tavernas, shops, and a bank. Not so long ago Almirida was a fishing village and a weekend retreat for Greeks visiting from Chania. Over the past few years, Almirida has slowly grown into a small resort with an expanding number of villas, apartments, and quite a few small family run hotels. Despite this change, it has remained popular with Greeks and many still use it for their weekend breaks. Thankfully, for the moment, Almirida has managed to maintain a laid-back, friendly atmosphere. In the village, you will find several mini markets as well as a baker. The wooded countryside behind Almirida is some of the most beautiful in Crete and a walkers paradise, especially in April and May when it's not too hot and the spring flowers are on the show. Mountain bikes can be hired locally. This small seaside village has two gently shelving sandy beaches backed in places with waterside tavernas. Both beaches are safe for children and there are sun beds for rent.

  • We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back again in future. The facilities were great and the pool was lovely (gets bugs etc in it quite quickly but is cleaned fairly regularly). We came by hire car using the google maps co-ordinates provided by the host however this didn't take us to the right place. If you copy and paste the following in to google maps this will take you to the end of the gravel driveway which takes you up to the property - 35°26'49.6"N 24°11'58.3"E The local area is great - plenty of really nice places to eat and the beach is fantastic. About 40 mins drive from Chania so plenty of options on days out etc.

Recommended Excursions 1.Fragokastello Fragokastello is in Sfakia, in the south coast of west Crete 13 kilometers east of the Chora Sfakion and west of Plakias. Fragokastello is a small seaside village with a few houses and enough rooms and apartments. It is known for the namesake Venetian castle which is saved in a very good condition, the beautiful beaches and the Drosoulites, the ghosts that appear in Fragokastello at dawn every May. However, over the centuries the region showed great monuments, but very few survive today.Fragokastello is in a surprisingly flat small plain, behind which the east White Mountains appear with the gorge and the Kallikrates plateau. This region is one of the many surprises that the nature of Crete offers to its visitors. 2. Sougia Sougia is a little seaside village in southern Crete, 70 kilometers south of Chania.Sougia is built at the exit of the Agia Eirini gorge, west of the Agierinioti streambed, and stands out for its big, beautiful beach that never fills up with people and its relaxed casual atmosphere.Sougia became known from the young in age or soul, who spent their vacation in their tents under the trees of the beach. Especially 20 years ago the situation was completely hippie in Sougia, but today it has begun to change. The scenes still appear every summer and the beach in her eastern side continues to attract nudists, but less than before. 3. Samaria Gorge The canyon is the biggest in Europe with 18 km length and the road that we walk in it is 14 km. His width ranges from 150 to 3 meters, at its narrowest point, the Doors. It was proclaimed a national park, in 1962 to protect rare flora and fauna. In 1980 it was awarded by the Council of Europe as one of the most beautiful areas. Due to its wild form, is the only place that the “beast” still lives as the locals call the cretan wild goat. A lot of rare species of birds also live and along the gorge many and rare herbs such as burning bush and wild flowers grow.In the gorge is forbidden: hunting, setting fires, collecting flowers and herbs, and also spending the night. Throughout the length of the route there are guards but also guides with mules that carry with a fare, whoever has a problem. Even in the entrance a symbolic ticket is given, that is refundable, to verify that all the visitors got out of the gorge. In the winter the canyon is impassable and the passage is allowed from early May until October. The course takes 6-8 hours depending on the abilities of the hiker. For the path we must be supplied with suitable hard shoes, (boots), and light food. It is not necessary to carry water with us, because along the gorge, there are streams with crystal, clear waters. But we must have been informed for the last’s boat departure from Agia Roumeli so that we leave for Sfakia. Xiloskalos, at the entrance of the gorge and at an altitude of 1200m , is a narrow path with a wooden handrail for convenience and protection of those who descend to Faraga, as the locals call it. Descending the path, you are slowly dominated by an awe. High mountains on the right and on the left a ravin without end in front of you. Countless shades of green and deep far another tall mountain. 4. Falasarna In the west end of the Chania’s prefecture and in a distance 59 km from the town of Chania is Falasarna. Also that was a port of ancient Polirinia that was independent, cutting her own coins which were depicting on one side the head of a woman and on the other the word FA between a trident. Due to the high security of the port and the impregnable fortress Polirinia became an important commercial and shipping centre. The entrance of the town was by sea. She was built in levels, as evidenced by the walls that have been saved until today. Today the port and the channel are 100 meters away from the sea, because the beach has been lifted. The Falasarna’s beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful of Crete with fine sand and length of 3 km. Her position at the west end helps her have the most beautiful sunset. 5. Elafonisi Elafonisi is near the southwestern side of Crete, 43 kilometeres from Kasteli and 76 from Chania. The road from Chrisoskalitissa continues in a dirt road to Elafonisi, for which there are organized tours from Kasteli and Chania as well as boats from Palaiochora. It has beautiful beaches. 6. Chania The city of Chania and capital of the prefecture stands out for her charm and nobility. It is separated in old and new town. The so-called new town, is a modern urban center, with all the amenities of any big city. Nevertheless the experienced eye of a traveler distinguishes elements of her old nobility. As one walks through the picturesque streets of the old town and observes the architecture building of settlements understands the footsteps of the cultures that marked the country’s history and the culture of people.A stroll in Chania looks like a fairytale. In every corner of the road your appointment with history renews and in every turn a “hero” waits for you and invites you to go on. RECOMMENDED CRETAN FOODS Olive oil Crete has about 60 olive trees per inhabitant so olive oil (the only oil traditionally used in cooking) is one of the staple foods. A family of four will easily use a litre a day if not more. A good restaurant must use good oil, the rest of the cooking comes second. Most people have their own supply of oil or buy from each other but of course you can buy oil in the supermarkets. Buy extra virgin oil, it will often be written in English on the labels. If you are considering buying some really good olive oil to take back with you, it is best to buy from a producer, not because it is cheaper (which it is) but because you can find some really good oil. Where? I am not going to divulge my supply - I think that I have just found the perfect one after years of searching - and have it plundered! If you go around and eat at a place where you find the oil especially tasty, compliment them on their oil and ask nicely if you could buy a little bit of it (a few litres is a little bit). This is, I guess, the best way to strike lucky. Another place where you could look is the covered market in Hania: there are some good oils to be found there and you might be able to get a taste before buying. There are no big price differences between the best oils and poor quality ones and as a rule they cost around 4 Euro per litre. Cheese You will be able to find a reasonable variety of cheeses in the supermarkets but there are only a few types of Cretan cheeses, listed below: Graviera: the name is a loose rendition of the word "gruyere" and it is a little similar. This is the standard hard cheese and being of local production, there are many types and tastes. Taste before buying. Myzitra: a fresh cheese made of ewe's milk. It can also be made of goats milk (in which case it is called "katsikithia") or mixed milk. This is the standard fresh cheese. A good goat's one will taste like these expensive French "chèvre frais" that you can buy in good delis, at a fraction of the price. Anthotiros: from the words "anthos" and "tiros" meaning "flower" and "cheese" it is a very mild, soft spring cheese made when the sheep pastures are still full of flowers. The closest cheese that I could compare it to is mozzarella although it is quite different. Paximadi I list it because it is an unusual staple food but it is not necessarily something that you would want to take back from your holiday as a present to someone: paximadi is the hard dry bread (it is baked, cut in slices and baked again) that peasants take to the fields and soften with a little water and olive oil. It will keep forever. Herbs The first thing that always strikes me whenever I step off the plane on Crete is the smell of herbs, especially thyme, oregano and marjoram. The whole island smells of herbs and is covered in them. Buy a supply before you leave the island, they will be fresh and cheap. A few herbs are also found only on Crete, like "diktamos" or Cretan dittany (which is supposed to have all sorts of medicinal properties). Honey Crete has been an important honey producer for a good few thousand years (it was a main export item to Ancient Egypt) and the honey is very good, especially the thyme honey. You can find honey in all the shops but it is better (and a little cheaper) to buy it loose from a producer. The honey from Omalos is quite famous. Meat Not something that you would take back with you of course, but I would just like to mention that the meat here (at least the local production meat) is supposed to be as good as it was in Northern Europe some decades ago, before industrial animal husbandry became the rule - this is according to an old German butcher who was here on holiday and told me so. Particularly noteworthy of course is lamb and goat's meat although they are not as cheap as one could think. Fish The Mediterranean is very overfished so do not expect masses of cheap fish. There is good fresh fish but it is expensive. Local drinks Ouzo is NOT at all a Cretan drink, so don't bring that back as a Cretan souvenir! The local "hard drink" is called "raki" or "tsikoudia" and is distilled from what is left over from pressing grapes (there must be a name in English for that stuff but I don't know it), so in fact it is the same as the Italian grappa. It is a pretty strong, pretty clean alcohol, meaning that you'll get drunk on it really quick but will feel halfway human the next day. It is a little difficult to buy because it is mainly home-produced. The bottled stuff called 'raki' or Cretan raki" in the supermarkets is pretty awful and no Cretan would touch it. It is also expensive compared to the Euro 3,50 or 4 per liter that you would pay elsewhere. Here again the same rule might apply as when buying olive oil: if you come across something that you like, ask very nicely if you could buy a bottle of it. Cretan wine is mainly home-made and rarely bottled. Traditionally there is no such thing as red or white wine. The wine is a golden brown colour with a fairly high alcohol content (13 - 14%) and more akin to port or sherry. Whether you like it or not is very much a matter of taste and of course a matter of where you drink it. It is cheap and you may be able to buy it by the liter in your local shops or café. Taste before buying because it can be very good or very bad. Fruit and vegetables Although this is changing most of the fruit and vegetable that you will be able to buy is "what grows here when it grows". Something of a strange experience for many of us who have become used to finding everything all year around in the supermarket. It means that the choices can be limited but it also means that what you will buy will be cheap and fresh and certainly not wrapped in plastic! One unusual vegetable commonly eaten here goes by the generic name of "horta" which literally translates as "grass". This covers all sorts of wild (nowadays some of it is cultivated as well) green stuff, generally bitter tasting, boiled until tender and served with a liberal dash of olive oil and a sprinkle of lemon. This is peasant food par excellence: healthy, tasty and free although if you buy it at a shop some of the more interesting types (stamangathi for example) can command substantial prices because of the work involved in its collection and cleaning.

  • We absolutely loved our stay. The town was perfect for a family and the location was perfect. Panagiotis was extremely responsive and helpful. I was a little afraid that we would not have enough room. But, there was plenty of room for 3 adults and two children. I hope to make it back again.

  • The apartment in Almyrida is great. Spacious especially with the wonderful roof terrace. It was perfect for siestas in the hot July afternoons. The access to good quality cafes, bars and Almyrida's safe and very pleasant beach is brilliant. We all liked trying out watersports that can be hired and learnt right next door at UCPA - stand-up paddleboarding and catamaran sailing as well as fun on a pedalo. Buses to Kalyves and Chania mean that a car is not necessary here and there a few a few good shops in the village ('The Pear Tree' is great for fresh veg and fruit). But a car can get you to other lovely spots nearby such as Gavalohori and Vamos. Hope to return some time to meet Panos again, plus some of the other lovely people in the area.

  • The apartment is located in front of Almyrida beach, which is very convenient. You do not even have to put on your shoes to go back to the apartment. The terrace is well equipped and very nice with a beautiful view of the bay. There are many restaurants nearby. Almyrida is a small seaside resort that has to fill up well in summer, but in April the atmosphere was very peaceful. The welcome of Panos was very nice. The cupboards had something to eat on the first morning, which was very convenient as we arrived relatively late. We traveled with 3 children 6months to 6 years and the apartment was perfect for us. In short, we recommend!

    Dounia2018-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Family trip for us, Panos was able to advise us and welcome us with attention. The accommodation correspond to the photos, the facilities are numerous, 2 bathrooms, several pleasant living spaces, including the terrace on the top floor with its sea view. The small village where it is located is rather quiet at this season, if you are looking for a little activity or some places to visit it will be necessary to go there without having to go too far. We are satisfied with our trip and the accommodation of Panos, as well as its availability.

    Alicia2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious apartment just on the beach and in a very safe area and easy, short walk to all shops and bars. Panagiotis was there for all of our questions. Some of the best restaurant which had the best food we ate in all of Greece. Also only a few minute walk from the Archaeology area. The apartment was extremely clean and comfy, and Panagiotis was very easy to be in contact with. Would recommend if staying in Almyrida!!!!!!!!

  • House comfortable and in line with the announcement. Friendly welcome with pleasant touches (fruit, a bottle of wine ...)

    Barbara2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Received clear instructions for transfer and checkin which were much appreciated. We were met in person on checkin where layout and appliances and locale were explained to us. Helpful tips on restaurants. Fresh fruits and a bottle of wine to welcome us were a lovely touch as were the provision of cheeses, water etc in the fridge. Overall a lovely experience. Would highly recommend this property.

Ideal with children, the beach and shops are all within walking distance, very convenient! Our hosts were full of attention when we arrived. The house is very clean and comfortable. A place to recommend !!

  • This has to be the best Airbnb place that I have stayed in The place was perfect. So clean and had everything you could want and was so homely walking in the door We arrived late so had a few things in the fridge for breakfast too It was cleaned halfway though our stay too and put more fresh water in I would go back in a heartbeat and hopefully will next year. The perfect place to stay xx

    Josh2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect accommodation, clean and well equipped. Very local for beach, shops and restaurants. Certainly go back and recommend.

    Pauline2018-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We've had a truly fantastic stay at Vana and George's house. The house is very stylish and extremely clean. The house was also cleaned during our stay including towels and sheets change. The house is in an excellent location, a couple of minutes walk to restaurants and the beach. A lovely bakery us just a few doors up. However it's also very quiet and peaceful. We were very comfortable there. There are are lovely touches for children- toys and books, a child's built in toilet seat (sounds strange thing to write but one of those little things that makes life easier when away with kids!) Vana and George are really great hosts. Communication was always good. There was food in the fridge on arrival meaning we didn't need to shop straight away and this was much appreciated. Vana and George also came to our rescue when my son's little cuddly toy got wrapped up in the bed sheets that had gone to the laundry and rescued it! Thank you! If we are back in Almyrida (likely as we love it there) we'd definitely love to stay again.

    Crete is the biggest of all the Greek Islands, and as a result, has plenty to offer holiday-makers. Its natural landscape alone—with mountains for hiking, valleys lined with olive groves, and numerous beautiful beaches—could keep your vacation agenda filled for a month. Generally, the north coast of Crete experiences mild to hot weather year round, with average highs of 15 °C in the winter and 30 °C in the summer. It is important to note that due to its varying geography Crete is home to a number of differing microclimates.

  • Very nice studio, with access to the garden, perfect for a quiet breakfast! Perfectly located for visiting the Chania area. At least 5 minutes from the beach and shops. We were welcomed. I highly recommend.

  • We stayed two nights in the studio it was very clean and perfect with a baby (with a rollaway bed) everything is well designed and close by car to the two small village nearby I recommend, calm and close to everything

    Justine2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • A really comfortable studio with everything you need. Gianna and Niko were great hosts and as well as raki there was even juice in the fridge. The place was very clean and the kitchen had everything you might need. The location is very strategic for exploring the areas of Chania and Rethymno (a car is necessary). We booked for 2 days and ended up staying 2 more!

    George2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Nikos place with my boyfriend and we had a terrific experience. The place is in a nice location, is super clean and we found everything we needed in the flat for a comfortable staying. Iwanna is a great host, ready to help and she keeps the flat constantly clean. We really appreciate that. Kalives is a great location and close to the sea and you can find everything you need there: from local shops to restaurants to mini markets, cafe and a nice beach. We travelled a lot by car but it was nice to have a comfortable place where to come back in the evening and have a quite dinner by the sea. Super recommended !

    Antonio Placido2017-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect stay at Ιωαννα's place. It was absolutely gorgeous, more so than the pics could portray. She was very welcoming, even providing us with ingredients we were missing to cook and gave us dessert! Very friendly and highly recommended. The place is about 20 min drive from Chania, 30 in traffic, but this was perfect for us as we had a few places we wanted to see in the region. A bus drives by Ιωαννα's place that goes to Samaria gorge for those interested, see the kiosk in Almyrida. The place is hard to find, it is smack in between Kalyves and Almyrida, so don't rely solely on google maps to get you here. She was also helpful guiding us, waiting for us in driveway, but follow the road closest to coast in between these two cities. Thank you Ιωαννα for our best stay in Greece thus far!
