The Crete region
Western Crete offers a diverse range of interesting places to visit including the spectacular Samaria Gorge.
There are numerous beaches, places or archtectural interest, & innumerable restaurants serving local delicacies to international cuisine.
The Cretans are particularly friendly & welcoming to their British guests.
The Chania / Almyrida area
Chania which is not to be missed for its beautiful back street restaurants, shops, stunning architecture and lively harbour. Once you've been you will have to go back! Kalives (2.8 Km) is great for a local breakfast and has a superb beach & Plaka (1.6Km), provides a tranquil insight into unspoilt Cretian village life.
The villa is just a short walk to the beach which is flat and sandy and slopes very gently into the clear turquoise water, making it ideal and safe for children. Along the beach are a number of restaurants offering diners a wide range of local inexpensive dishes (€6 -7, including wine), as well as a diverse range of international cuisine, whilst enjoying breathtaking views across the beach and bay. The sunsets in this part of Crete are spectacular as the sun falls across Souda Bay.
There are no night clubs in Almirida & the location suits those seeking a more leisurely relaxing & quite holiday.

Chania airport, with UK flights in and out on Tuesdays, is a 35 minute drive away. You can collect a hire car outside the arrival's hall or take a fixed price taxi (€40). Use www.flightline.co.uk & www.economycarhire.co.uk to help with this. Car hire is not essential, but can also be arranged locally in Almyrida.
You can also take the ferry from Athens (Piraeus) to Souda, and then a 20 minute car drive to Almirida.
A hire car is not essential as a fixed price taxi one way costs 40 euros, and is available directly outside the arrivals hall. From Almyrida local buses provide a regular service to Kalives further up the coast, and to Chania. Heraklion airport now has flights 7 day a week from Gatwick & 4 days per week from Manchester, and is a 2 hour direct journey on the National Highway. Therefore we have no specific change-over day.
