Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
As its name suggests, Beachside Villa is set just above the town beach of Kalives. From both of the balconies and the pool terrace there are fabulous views villa. The cream leather sofas, marble table tops, and matching blonde wood furniture and built-in wardrobes give the villa a very light and airy feel. This is enhanced by the villa’s position so close to the water that ensures that it enjoys the cool sea breezes during the hot summer months.of the sandy town beach, the village with its beautiful church, the small fishing harbour, Souda Bay, The Turkish Fort at Aptera, and the Akrotiri Peninusla. Kalives is a very popular village and it is very rare to find such lovely accommodation so close to the beach. There are three private sitting out areas that are perfect for dining “al-fresco” with a choice of sun or shade. Perfect for those of you who do not want to have to drive all the time, Beachside Villa is only 75m from the nearby sandy beach that is lined with trees, tavernas and mini-markets.

The furnishings at Beachside Villa are particularly tasteful and are very comfortable – this is not your average holiday home. Diaphanous curtains with tie-backs, silk cushions, modern floral paintings, and vibrant bed covers are just some of the elegant touches in the

The Crete region
Crete has everything you that could possibly want from a holiday: soaring mountains that are snow capped from November to June, many great walking trails including Europe's deepest gorge, ancient archaeological sites and Minoan palaces, quaint villages, sparkling clear blue seas with tavernas serving freshly caught fish, golden beaches, glorious wild flowers in the Spring, and a variety of delicious foods which are all made from healthy home grown produce.
As incredible as the island is, it is the Cretan people who will make your holiday truly memorable. Descendants of the Minoan's, one of Europe's earliest civilizations, and shaped by centuries of struggle against oppression, the Cretans are as rugged as the mountains, fiercely independent but passionately friendly.
Beachside Villa is located in the heart of The Apokoronas Region just east of the beautiful town of Chania. With its stunning Venetian harbour, quayside bars and restaurants, what better place to relax and watch the world go by. In the narrow streets behind Chania's harbour you will find tavernas, bars, the famous covered market, and many local shops selling handicrafts, textiles, jewellery and hand made ceramics. Visit 'Leather Lane' for outstanding hand made leather bargains.
The climate of Crete is a temperate Mediterranean climate and the weather is characterized by long hot, dry summers and mild winters. The Spring can be warm and sunny during the day but still have cooler evenings and is perfect for walking, birdwatching and looking at the wild flowers. All in all Crete is absolutely perfect for your Villa holiday.
The village of Kalives has long been a popular destination for holiday makers seeking a typically Greek seaside resort that has many amenities, but is far removed from brash tourism. Kalives stretches along 4 kilometres of sandy beaches, and the narrow main street is lined with old white washed houses. Two rivers join the sea at Kalives, and there is a traditional fishing boat harbour at the eastern end of the village. There is an abundance of excellent tavernas and cafes lining the seafront, and there are shops of every description including 3 large supermarkets, 2 bookshops, many gift shops, 5 clothes shops, 3 organic fruit and vegetable shops, 2 chemists, 3 bakeries, 3 butchers and a laundry.
The village is also the home of a number of talented artists, and the only traditional barrel maker who is left in the area (a great place to go for a wine tasting visit).
Three kilometres away in Almyrida, there is a scuba diving centre, a water sports centre which rents out kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans, a scuba diving office, and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding, walking tours, and guided coach excursions.. A few minutes by car from the villa, there are a huge variety of archaeological sites and traditional villages with wonderful tavernas. There is also an interesting selection of small craft centres and museums, including glass blowing in Kokkino Horio, lace makers in Gavalohori, and silk makers in Kalamitsi.
For those of you looking for even more activity, the historic town of Chania is only 25 minutes away by car.
Cooking classes and wine tasting set at a local winery can be taken by those of you who are interested. Guided walks led by experts in mountaineering and/or flora and fauna can also be arranged. For those of you who prefer to venture out on your own, a copy of the guide book "Crete on the Road" by Frankie Miles comes with every villa. The book contains detailed directions to many well known and hidden sites, opening times and prices for all attractions, taverna recommendations, and the only existing map of the National Highway showing the exits and entrances.
