The Crete region

With mountain views, quiet location with friendly English neighbors.

Coldest temperature reaches 12 degrees in February.

For more information please do not hesitate to contact us, we are more than happy to help.

There is a small mini market in the square which is open 7 days a week.

Every morning a bread man will visit & sound his horn to let you know he is here in the square.

There is a very nice local taverna on the corner with varied daily specialities, also very reasonably priced.


The nearby Village of Plaka which has several tavernas & bars as well as a well stocked mini market that stays open late. The Bicorna Hotel just down the lane is a lovely spot for a drink. Sometimes they stage music nights.

The village of Kokkino Xorio has a lovely taverna called 'The Retreat' with a stunning view looking over the resort of Almyrida

Almyrida is a sea-side resort , it has an excellent beach that shelves very gently into the sea making it ideal for children.(except for the small beach near the Almyrida Beach Apts where there are dangerous currents) There are a good selection of tavernas, bars & provision shops.

Kalives, 7 kms away & walkable along the coastal path from Almyrida, offers a wider choice of shops & tavernas plus banks with an ATM. There is also a large Inka supermarket on the outskirts, worth a trip if you're going to cater for yourselves.

Georgioupolis has 2 spacious beaches & a large public swimming pool. There are many more tourist facilities here & the 30 minute drive over the mountains is spectacular.

"Peaceful and close to nature holiday in a small mountain village"

We had great holiday: enjoyed the peaceful and natural village life, beautiful nature aroud. Our 8 and 4 year old children liked to swimm in the pool! Neighbours were nice. Well-equiped village shop and taverna were just by the 5 min walking and "alwais open" with frendly staff.
Villa was very comfortable and clean and we had everything we needed.
It´s a good choice, if You need close to nature holiday and want to experience real Crete athmosphere! Good value for the price.
