Villa Amvrosia - 259

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Armeni, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Villa Amvrosia, Armeni, Crete

The newest Villa by the young owners of our very popular Villa Galania, Villa Amvrosia is a boutique style Villa with an up to date finish more in keeping with the sophisticated Cote dAzur than a Villa on the edge of a small, albeit charming, village in Western Crete and it is this very incongruity which makes it, for us at Freelance, who have a liking for the quirky,totally irresistible.

The hillside accommodation ranges over 3 floors with a *heated Jacuzzi pool on the lower level making an extravagant addition to the beautifully tiled L shaped swimming pool set into a deck at tree top level; which rather like the house that Jack built is also at ground floor level of the Villa. Beautifully furnished, the open plan living area, on the raised first floor, warmed out of season by an inset glass fronted fire...

The villa location is stunning and the directions given could not be more helpful. You must follow the directions though, down to "go left at the big tree" as SAT NAV won't be of use. The villa is stunning and secluded, the outside area is...More

About the neighborhood
Armeni, Crete
Something of a foodies paradise, the village of Armeni is notable for its large shady plain trees lining the main street where you will find a choice of simple cafenions and three excellent tavernas. There is also a small mini -market and amazingly, a well stocked delicatessen with wonderful local cheeses, yoghurt and charcuterie as well as a large choice of frozen fish! Of a morning, fresh bread is delivered to the cafenion on the small triangular central square, you'll see what we mean!
Getting around
Nearby Kalives (approx 5min drive) 18 km east of Chania and strung along the edge of Souda Bay, Kalives is still very much a Greek village that has taken tourism in its stride and the bustling main street reflects the status quo with local shops, mini markets, tavernas and cafes happily doing business with all and sundry.
