Rustic on the outside, rural-chic on the inside, this characteful estate has recently been given a new lease of life as a deluxe private retreat for a group of friends, family or couples. Immense love and care has been lavished on this ancient house and the careful restoration was carried out with full respect to the place's original architecture and spirit.

About this location

The Chania Prefecture region

Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. A well known destination, favored by many all around the world, because of its beautiful landscape consisting of approximately 1,000 kilometer-long coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy magnificent beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea, as well as other natural sightseeing, historical monuments, picturesque rural regions and beautiful modern cities.

The town of Chania where Athermigo villa is situated, provides on top of this a majestic old town, full of history and tradition, with amenities even for the most demanding visitors. One of the strongest elements that make visitors love their stay in Chania and Crete in general, is the great climate.


A place of history, tradition, and natural beauty. Agios Pavlos, Crete, is a picturesque village in the centre of Apokoronas Peninsula, close to the villages of Vamos and

Douliana. Although it is a rural village, Gavalohori has good amenities for visitors, including taverns, cafés, a bakery, a mini market, and various stores. The village is very close to the magnificent beach of Almyrida and other sandy beaches.

The surrounding area, is equally interesting. The nature around the village is wonderful. You can make unforgettable walks in the footpaths around Gavalohori, in scenic landscapes of olive trees, carobs and bushes of herbs, while the historical monuments promise to indulge even the most demanding visitors.
