The Crete region
On the outskirts of Chania is Limnopoulis, a large water park. There are many historical sights in the region, both of ancient Greece (such as the Minotaur's Palace just outside Heraklion) and modern Greece ( the World War 2 Allied and German cemeteries).
In this part of Crete there are plenty of sandy beaches to choose from, and miles of breathtaking views to take in for walkers and drivers alike.
The Chania / Almyrida area
Almiryda is well located in beautiful and unspoilt Western Crete. Georgiopoulis, where you can take a peddle boat up the river to see turtles in their natural habitat, is just a short drive. So too is Lake Kournas, a large freshwater lake where you can swim or hire a small boat.
Almiryda beach is just a 3 minute drive. It is a beautiful sandy beach laced with small boats. The sea is clean and safe for children. Watersports are available at the centre alongside the beach.
The Venetian town of Chania, has many excellent restaurants, cafés, art galleries and shops lining the picturesque harbour and in the cobbled back streets. Trips on glass bottomed boats, or horse and carriage are available.
Almiryda 1½km, Chania 25km, the nearby larger village of Kalives is 4km. Plaka (where Zorba the Greek was filmed) is 3km.

Set in beautiful gardens, very peaceful and private with sea view from your bedroom! Fantastically equipped with everything you could want. Only 3 min drive to Almyrida beach which is shallow, sandy and great for kids. Town has lots of choice for eating out, mini markets, car rental and great bakery. We enjoyed visiting the blue lagoon of stavros beach and chania. Will be recommending to family and friends. Thanks to owners for excellent directions and very helpful cleaner and pool man who visits twice a week.
