Villa Rosaria

Overview
Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 7 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Gavalochori, Apokoronas, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Villa Rosaria is an absolutely gorgeous and totally private villa set on the outskirts of the pretty village of Gavalohori, and it was featured in a wonderful article on Crete in The Sunday Mail travel supplement on May 18, 2014. The villa has outstanding views of Souda Bay, Aptera Fort, The Akrotiri Peninsula, acres of olive and conifer trees, and the spectacular White Mountains. This location is ideal for anyone who would like to be in a completely private, green countrified setting, whilst only 2 minutes drive from a traditional village, and 4 minutes from the beach and many amenities. The peace and tranquility of the area is truly wonderful. It is only broken by the early morning jingle of bells, as Michaelis, the neighbouring farmer, herds his goats and sheep up onto the eastern hillside to graze.

Set among olive trees, in its own...

About the neighbourhood
Gavalochori is a very traditional village and it has great historical importance in this area. There are buildings still remaining from Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish eras, and artefacts have also been found in the area from Neolithic and Minoan Times. Many of these artefacts are now housed in the Historical and Folklore Museum which is located on one of the village's narrow streets. On the outskirts of the village there is a lovely picnic area beneath a thicket of shady trees next to some Venetian Wells. The village square is still very much the focal point of village life. The main kafenion/taverna is a beautifully renovated stone building which is run by the very friendly Monica Papatheofilo. The food and desserts here are delicious and the prices are low. Sitting under the kafenio... more
