LICENCED BY THE GREEK TOURIST BOARD MHTE 1354-13-0252 There are 2 bedrooms normally available sleeping 4 people, but 2 extra bedrooms can be made available for larger groups so you can sleep up to 8 people. 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 traffic during the day and occasional vehicles at night, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages.

Also nearby, only a 12 minute walk away, is the 1000-year old Greek village of Gavalochori with tavernas & shops. WHEELCHAIR ACCESS: only a few steps up to house, (roll-up ramp available). Downstairs 2nd bathroom (professional commode/shower-seat available) and double bedroom with immediate flat access to patio and outside dining area overlooking the pool.

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...
Getting around
A car hire is recommended, though not strictly necessary. There is a good local taxi service in Almyrida.
