Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Almyrida Villa and Cottage is a lovely property which enjoys an elevated position on the top of a hill with absolutely stunning views of Souda Bay, The Akrotiri Peninsula, the White Mountains, and numerous small villages including Plaka, Kambia, Kalives and Kokkino Horio. Despite the “top of the world” location that you may never want to leave, this villa and the adjacent cottage are only a few minutes by foot to the taverna and mini market in the village centre. The villa and completely self-contained cottage always rent as one property in order to ensure privacy. During the low season the villa can be rented at a lower price that does not include use of the cottage, but for larger families the cottage can be rented along with the villa for an additional fee. During high season (July and August) the cottage is always included in the rental price.
This lovely villa is a perfect retreat for relaxing, with the fabulous pool terrace and its infinite sea views being the most prominent feature of the property, and the best place from which to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. The design of the villa has been carefully thought out in order to bring your living area into the outdoors, so that you can fully appreciate the outstanding views at all times. Therefore there are many terraces for both sun and shade, and an ample supply of garden furniture such as tables, chairs, umbrellas and sun-loungers. The pool terrace is surrounded by a low natural stone wall, and railings with a gate which can stop the younger members of the family from accessing the pool without supervision. For “children” both young and old, the English owner has thoughtfully included a Games Room in the garage area, with table tennis, table football and a pool table.
Both the spacious house and the cottage have been simply but comfortably furnished in typically Cretan style, with wooden furniture that has been made locally, and matching wood windows, doors, shutters, and kitchen cabinets. Dotted around the villa are traditional Greek clay pots and lamps on plinths. All modern conveniences have been supplied including a large surround sound TV in the villa, a DVD player, a dishwasher and a washing machine, a BBQ, and air conditioning units in the bedrooms, The a/c units also double up as heaters for the cooler nights early and late season. There is solar powered hot water or a back-up immersion heater.
