    Villa Galania, Armeni, Crete *** Featured in Sunday Times Europe`s 100 Sexiest Summer Villas ***

    Set on a small hill above the village of Armeni but only 800 metres from the village square, Villa Galania is ideally placed to enjoy the rural idyll whilst still being within reasonable walking distance of local shops and tavernas and just ten minutes by car from the sandy beaches of Kalives. Parking the car for the first time and then walking up past a small copse of Holme Oak trees where a hammock has been slung and around the corner of the villa, it is easy to imagine you have stepped into a page of Harper's Bazaar or Vogue The pale pastel rose facade of the villa and beautiful pool at one with the serenely peaceful backdrop of rural Crete and the White Mountains which may still have...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Although the villa was only recently completed the young owners have created a very atmospheric period style property with the skillful use of simple local materials. Covered balconies and terraces provide shade and succour from the heat of the sun, whilst the villas stone faced doorways and rough hewn timbered ceilings add an authentic touch of the past.

    Despite the historic Crete flavour, Villa Galania is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the owners really have ticked all the boxes down to the smallest detail.

    Outside around the 9m x 4m pool and adjoining children's pool, there's a huge amount of living space including a smart alfresco cover dining area, a lounge area, a table soccer, plus a rusticated covered barbecue complete with Cretan oven and a small fri...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A dream villa set at the end of a single lane track. Complete solitude if this is what you require but a short drive or walk to the nearest tavernas, local shop and butcher. We hardly left in all the time we were there as the pool was so nice and no disturbances throughout the day. The separate barbecue area was ideal. Everything you require in the kitchen. The owners young lad delivered a bag of oranges one day which was lovely. The perfect villa to unwind, beautiful. more

Villa Galania is luxurious accommodation offering magnificent views of the snow capped hills (we visited in April) and countryside. It is situated 600m from a lovely little village (Armenoi) complete with mini market, bakery (must try their ham and cheese pie) delicatessen and several tavernas. The national highway is only 5 minutes drive away which means it is ideal to explore the Chania and Rethymnon regions. We came to enjoy the beaches (Falassarna), walk the gorges (Imbros) and enjoy the character of Rethymnon and Chania, not to mention the rural feel of places like Argiroupoli (a must). All of theses places are within easy driving distance. We even managed a day trip to Heraklion (Knossos & museum) - 1.5hrs away. The team and Freelance are excellent to deal with and in my view outperform any other agency I have dealt with. You will not be disappointed - in fact, you will not want to leave Villa Galania. more
