PRICE IS ACCORDING TO OCCUPANCY and prices shown are for a minimum of 2 guests. There are 4 bedrooms, the house sleeps up to 8.
The villa shares the Olive Grove with only 4 other villas (also owned by us) but is not overlooked by them so your privacy is protected. Unusually for Crete, there is at least 60 metres between each house, and separated by colour full private gardens. The olive grove is huge (4.5 acres, 17,000 sq metres) and is fully fenced and gated. The road to Almyrida has only light...

Secluded spacious villa in a wonderful olive grove. We were on holiday with a group of friends all in separate villas and it was the perfect formula for a fun time, enjoying sunshine breakfasts on the verandah and gathering for activities every day. Views of the hills, lovely pool, local produce to enjoy and short walks to fabulous taverna meals....

Villa Helios lived up to it's name, being well appointed to bask in sunshine during our stay. It's an extremely well set out villa with 4 double bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining/lounge area & cosy kitchen and convivially coped very well with 7 busy adults. The outside space with verandah, own swimming pool, barbecue area etc., is fantastic, and also quiet,...

The villa was absolutely perfect, I can't fault any aspect of it at all. It was really clean, spacious, very comfortable and we felt at home straight away with everything we could possibly need at our disposal such as cooker, washing machine, kettle, iron, microwave, a proper bath, towels etc. The customer service from John and his team has been...

Many thanks for your 5 star review. Taking on board your comment about how you could live there, you might like to see what Crete is like in the winter months when the tourists have gone home, yet there are plenty of tavernas still open, the sun still shines and the sea is still warm enough to swim in right...

About the neighbourhood
VILLA ASTERIA is situated 2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on north west coast. This is to the east of Souda Bay on the Apokoronas peninsular, about 20 kilometres from the city of Chania and its airport.OUR LOCATION is ideal if you want a quiet family holiday with plenty of sun and sea, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages. Nearby ALMIRIDA VILLAGE has around a dozen restaurants and tavernas, mostly along the seafront, so you can enjoy your meal just a few metres from the waves. Variety is everywhere. Nightlife - there are several quite trendy bars open until silly hours, and there is often a disco in Niki bar on a Sunday night. You can also expect impromptu musicians to turn up at an... more

How to get there
Airport: CHANIA: 20.0 km
Ferry: Chania: 20.0 km
The nearest airport is Chania (sometimes written as Hania). This is an easy half-hour drive away, depending on traffic.

Chania airport is your easiest option because there are regular flights on a Tuesday from most UK main & regional airports (except Scotland). Most of the villa rental market in West Crete is geared towards Tuesday - Tuesday bookings because of this. If you can organise your holiday to start on a Tuesday you are more likely to get the availability you prefer.

The alternative airport is Heraklion. Compared to Chania, flights may be slightly cheaper, and there is a wide choice of arrival dates. However, the drive is longer - just over 2 hours - but it is an easy straight road across the island and gives you the opportunity to see more of Crete.

Tuesday flights to Ch...
