Ideal villa to rent on its own or with its sister villa Iannis, both set in a large plot with private pools, quiet and secluded but within a 5 minute walk from the sandy beach. An easy level walk to the beach and the villa is very suitable for familes, friends or the older generation look for a more relaxed holiday as its an easy flat walk to the beach. Its located in a peaceful location yet close to tavernas and restaurants and the sandy beach. There is often an onshore wind in Almyrida which makes even the hottest months much more pleasant with a fantastic choice of places to eat and drink.

Stayed at Villa Varvara with our young children and parents for 10 days in May / June 2015. The service we received was excellent - problems (and there were a few) were resolved promptly (except for the DVD player which didn't work and wasn't replaced), the villa was spotlessly clean and cleaned regularly, and the pool was also serviced regularly... more

How to get there
Airport: Chania: 18.6 mi
Ferry: Souda Bay: 15.5 mi
There are 2 airports, Chania and Heraklion. Chania is about a 45 minute drive and Heraklion a 2 hour coastal trip.

There are many airlines flying to the airports with Heraklion having the majority of flights.

Hiring a car is simple in Crete with many good value car hire companies working from both airports. Please ask us should you wish to be advised. If you are staying for just a week and arriving in Chania it is possible that you may not need a car and can travel to the villas by taxi. We do recommend a car for 2 weeks.
