COME HOME - COME TO VILLA MIA From the Greek for 'One' - there is only one, and now you too can share the privacy and exclusivity afforded by this exquisite luxurious single-storey architect designed home, located in luscious gardens and enjoying stunning panoramic views over olive groves towards the White Mountains and the sea. This unique Cretan home, constructed and equipped to the highest specification, features a swimming pool that wraps around the villa and really has the WOW! factor. As we were told by another property owner 'this is too good to rent out' - but we do! We have focused over 20 years of experience of staying in other people's villas to inform our design, and now offer you a villa constructed and equipped to the highest standards, suitable all year round for families ...COME HOME - COME TO VILLA MIA From the Greek for 'One' - there is only one, and now you too can share the privacy and exclusivity afforded by this exquisite luxurious single-storey architect designed home, located in luscious gardens and enjoying stunning panoramic views over olive groves towards the White Mountains and the sea.

We have focused over 20 years of experience of staying in other people's villas to inform our design, and now offer you a villa constructed and equipped to the highest standards, suitable all year round for families and parties of all ages, and sleeping up to 6 plus an infant. Our aim is to deliver first class accommodation for the independent traveller at affordable prices. Solar-powered (eco-friendly) heating system installed in our mosaic-tiled pool. This raises the water temperature at no cost to yourselves or the environment and makes it even more pleasant to swim, particularly at the start and end of the season when sunshine is plentiful but the ambient temperature slightly lower than in the middle of summer. Unlimited broadband internet access. Single level accommodation throughout, level access to gardens and pool, extensive patio and seating areas, both open and shaded (stairs only to roof terrace) - but the views are stunning from everywhere ! Extra facilities for disabled guests include modified bathroom, grab rails, shower chair and raised toilet seat - please ask for details.

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...
Getting around
Car hire is recommended - but not 100% required. The villa is 45 minutes drive from the nearest airport at Chania and just 7 minutes drive from the nearest beach.
