About the neighbourhood
Gavalohori stands at the end of a green and wooded valley leading the 3.5 km to the sea at Almirida. The village is renowned for keeping ancient Cretan traditions alive, including the manufacture of hand made lace, silk, pottery and honey. As a holiday destination it offers a wide range of facilities, English spoken in shops and restaurants and yet retaining the Cretan charm

Beautiful Chania with its Venetian port, is an easy drive, whilst Rethimnon, with its characteristic Turkish minarets and attractive harbour and leather markets, is 25 km along the coast in the other direction. Sandy beaches abound, offering watersports (including scuba), safe family swimming or horseriding.

Just across the road is the lane to the museum and also here is a small taverna which serves amazing food, se...

Crete can be reached by direct charter flights from May to October, and easily on scheduled flights via Athens all year round. The journey time is around 4 hours from the UK.

*EasyJet fly to Athens from Luton and Manchester, and all the major charter companies fly direct to Chania (CHQ), which is less than an hours drive away.
