Holiday Rental House
REGULATED AND APPROVED BY THE GREEK TOURIST BOARD MHTE 1354-13-0251. Managed by 'Saint Basil Olive Grove - Rentavillacrete' Ideal for a large group or 2 families on holiday together, the house sleeps up to 8 in 4 double/twin bedrooms. There is a very large patio outside, ideal for ball games. Yet our prices for early and late season are competitive with smaller apartments - so this home is affordable even for 2 people. The villa shares the Olive Grove with only 4 other villas (also owned by us) but is not overlooked by them so your privacy is protected. Unusually for Crete, there is at least 60 metres between each house, and separated by colour full private gardens. The olive grove is huge (4.5 acres, 17,000 sq metres) and is fully fenced and gated.

The road to Almyrida has only light traffic during the day and occasional vehicles at night, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages. Villa Asteria is designed with comfortable double & twin bedrooms. It has a private swimming pool which is GATED to help with child safety. Located in our St Basil Olive Grove, only 3 minutes drive from the beach at Almirida, on the Apokoronas Peninsular in North West Crete (35 minute drive from Chania Airport). Also nearby, only a 12 minute walk away, is the 1000-year old Greek village of Gavalochori with tavernas & shops. WHEELCHAIR ACCESS: only a few steps up to house, (roll-up ramp available). Downstairs 2nd bathroom (professional commode/shower-seat available) and double bedroom with immediate flat access to patio and outside dining area overlooking the pool.

I come verey two years, late season, and it's just a fantastic place to get away from it all. Very quiet, lovely easy walks, plenty of towns nearby for groceries & restaurants. The owners are incredibly helpful, andd fun with it!

About the neighbourhood
VILLA ASTERIA is situated 2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on 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. We have personally eaten at every restaurant and have never had a poor meal, although perhaps some of the local village wine is a acquired taste! Cooking is invariably home-made Cretan (according to long-hand...
Getting around
We recommend a local car hire company though it is not absolutely neccesary. There is a very good local taxi service.
