    How to get there
    Airport: Chania: 13.7 mi
    Ferry: Souda: 7.5 mi
    Chania airport, with UK flights in and out on Tuesdays, is a 35 minute drive away. You can collect a hire car outside the arrival's hall or take a fixed price taxi (€40). Use www.flightline.co.uk & www.economycarhire.co.uk to help with this. Car hire is not essential, but can also be arranged locally in Almyrida.

    You can also take the ferry from Athens (Piraeus) to Souda, and then a 20 minute car drive to Almirida.

    A hire car is not essential as a fixed price taxi one way costs 40 euros, and is available directly outside the arrivals hall. From Almyrida local buses provide a regular service to Kalives further up the coast, and to Chania. Heraklion airport now has flights 7 day a week from Gatwick & 4 days per week from Manchester, and is a 2 hour direct journey on the Nationa...

Lovely house, clean and well equipped. Nicely decorated. We also had to ask for help to find the place as there are quite a few similar places (also it is number 4 despite being called villa gig 5!!). The house gave us plenty of room for everyone, lovely sofas. Yes the outside table did face the bins so we ate... more

On the upside, the house is modern on the inside, is comfortable and is a short walk to Almyrida, however, its location right on the road with smelly trash dumpsters 30 feet outside the front door are big downsides. There is no appreciable outdoor space to enjoy comfortably (there is terrace outside the second floor bedroom, but that faces the... more

Management response:

I'm concerned this is not a balanced review. Other guests found the map most useful & accurate - please see the reviews for "Villa Gig 3". Also as the review for "Villa Gig 3" & others for "Villa Gig 5" confirm the extent of items provided is extensive, listed on the advert for all guests to read before booking &... more
