About the neighborhood
VILLA is situated 2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on Crete's north west coast. This is to the east of Souda Bay on the Apokoronas peninsular, about 20 kilometres from the city of Chania and its airport. OUR LOCATION is ideal if you want a quiet family holiday with plenty of sun and sea, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages. Nearby ALMIRIDA VILLAGE has around a dozen restaurants and tavernas, mostly along the seafront, so you can enjoy your meal just a few metres from the waves.

Cooking is invariably home-made Cretan (according to long-h... more
Getting around
We would recommend a hire car, though this is not strictly necessary, there is a good local taxi service.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: CHANIA: 12.4 mi
Ferry: Chania: 12.4 mi
The nearest airport is Chania (sometimes written as Hania). This is an easy half-hour drive away, depending on traffic. Chania airport is your easiest option because there are regular flights from most UK main regional airports, The alternative airport is Heraklion. Compared to Chania, flights may be slightly cheaper, and there is a wide choice of arrival dates. However, the drive is longer - just over 2 hours - but it is an easy straight road across the island and gives you the opportunity to see more of Crete.
