Further comments about the area:

The villa is located on a hillside in the village of Gavalochori in West Crete. Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokoron region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Its location is 25 km east of Chania which takes about 20 minutes drive along the National Road. Gavalochori is an old historical village with approximately 500 residents which has retained its color and way of life. Several family run tavernas offer the visitor tasty dishes of Cretan cuisine. Near the small village square and within walking distance from the villa there is a coffee shop, a bakery, a mini mart, two tavernas and the Folk Art Museum. The surrounding area has several beautiful nature paths for walking or biking which lead either towards the sea or towards the White mountains. The coastal village of Almirida is less than 10 minutes driving distance. In Almirida you may find all basic facilities, such as a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, ATM, gas station and taxi service. It has a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear water and a shallow section particularly suitable for small kids. This Blue Flag rated beach is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and sea sports services. There are several sea side tavernas and bars offering exquisite sea food and night entertainment. The large town of Chania of course offers the visitor a wider range of choices for shopping, dining and night life mostly centered around the old Venetian port. Some interesting monuments in Chania town are the covered Municipal Market, the Venetian fortifications, the Egyptian Lighthouse, the Synagogue, the Fortress of Firkas, the Mosque of Giali Tzamisi, the Arsenals, and the Othrodox Cathedral.

    September 2019 Großartig

    Die Villa entspricht genau der Beschreibung und wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt. Die Räume sind sehr großzügig vor allem die 2 Hauptschlafzimmer. Der Pool ist mit seinen 12x6 Metern eine Wucht. Frau Froso die Verwalterin war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Alles in allem eine schöne Location um den Westteil der Insel zu erkunden und jederzeit zu empfehlen Klaus

    Perfekt sommarvecka

    Huset och bemötandet var över all förväntan. Precis lika härligt som på bilderna! Den lokala lilla orten bjuder på härlig atmosvär, grym restaurang och bageri.

    Gavalohori, Crète

    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette magnifique maison. Endroit très calme, vue splendide. La proximité du joli village de Gavalohori est un plus. Ménage tous les jours, changement de linge tous les 2 jours : top ! Nous aurions apprécié un peu plus de vaisselle pour cuisiner ainsi que couverts et assiettes. Attention, porte du lave vaisselle cassée...
