We, at Freelance Holidays, manage the properties on behalf of the owners. We will provide you the details of our 24/7 contact person, Diane, who lives on Crete and is there to ensure everything goes smoothly, before & during your stay with us. She will send you a message just before your holiday starts so you will have her details. Should you need anything during your stay, please contact her as she has had nearly 30 years of experience in the hospitality field & knows Crete very well. We provide very good directions which you need to download from the Airbnb Itinerary once you have booked. On these directions it explains where the keys will be & step by step on how to get to the accommodation. Once you arrive, you just let yourself in & start to enjoy your holiday. Freelance Holidays provides a Property Manual inside the accommodation which tells you all about the important things ie. wifi codes, hot water systems, where to take your rubbish & how things generally work in the villa. Plus, there is a very good Freelance Holidays information booklet about Crete in the accommodation for you to use throughout your stay It it you will find further details about places to go, beach maps plus a taverna guide. You may meet the owners when they come to change the linen with the cleaner or when they look after the pool. They are a lovely couple & you will probably get the feel of Cretan hospitality after meeting them. They are there to ensure that you are enjoying yourselves too. 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 two 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. First thing, fresh bread is delivered to the cafenion on the small triangular central square you'll see what we mean! Plus, a sweet shop has just recently opened which offers a good choice to satisfy your sweet tooth. 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. There's a pretty little river which huge trout are rumoured to inhabit and where small plump ducks encourage children to feed them. Sheltered by the headland just to the east of the village is an excellent sandy beach with convenient cantinas selling cool drinks for sunbathers, whilst pedaloes and water skiing are readily available for the more energetic. Just back from the main thoroughfare in a warren of narrow streets tucked into the hillside, the locals go about their daily life in time honoured fashion and if you venture into the nearby countryside, you will discover numerous tiny villages in idyllic rural settings. With almost a dozen tavernas, plus a number of small hotels and a choice of cosmopolitan little bars or ethnic cafenions, Kalives has much to recommend it to the visitor and yet happily manages to retain that quintessential Greekness. The villa and pool is for your private use only as well as the garden. Bed linen & towels are provided as well as pool towels. The cleaner will come in during your stay & change them, depending on how many days you are staying. All of this is included in the price. The hillside Villa 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 fireplace, leads onto a large covered balcony with views of the pool and the dramatic White Mountains where the village of Stilos sits picturesquely on the lower slopes. The kitchen is equipped, as befits a Villa of this quality, with large fridge Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: EOTΜΗΤΕ1042Κ91003008401More
