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 will meet the owners as they will be waiting for you on arrival to welcome you. They also oversee the cleaner when they come to change the linen & tend to the pool. They are a lovely couple & you will probably get the feel of Cretan hospitality after meeting them. They also want to ensure that you are enjoying yourselves. Almerida, Crete 22 km east of Chania, the pretty little seaside village of Almerida has two gently shelving sandy beaches fringed by sleepy waterside tavernas as well as a small fishing harbour and little rocky coves, with the sea a marvellous melange of colours from deep aquamarine to a pastel turquoise. A decade ago Almirida was just a fishing village and a weekend watering hole for local Greeks from Chania. Times change of course and Almirida has slowly grown into a small resort with a number of villas, apartments and quite a few hotels. Curiously enough though, the Greeks still come at weekends, the fishermen still fish and the waterside tavernas still have a laid back unhurried atmosphere where time is of no consequence and you can sit for hours lingering over a meal. The village now has several mini markets as well as a bakers, an internet cafe and a couple of quite trendy bars. Mountain bikes can be hired locally and on the beach you can rent sun beds. The rolling wooded countryside behind Almirida is some of the most beautiful in Crete and a walkers paradise, especially in April and May when spring flowers carpet the landscape in colourful abandon. If you are looking for exciting nightlife Almerida is definitely not a good choice but for a quiet relaxing holiday by the sea, it certainly takes some beating. Blue Flag International Almirida beach is a Blue Flag Beach Mr and Mrs Robinson - - Jul 2007 'We had a fabulous honeymoon in Almirida which has lovely beaches, tavernas, bars and grocery shops. We loved it and can't wait to go back!' Mrs. Levitt - Villa Nynemia ** - Jun 2006 'Without doubt the best holiday we've EVER had. Freelance were absolutely fantastic, very professional yet extremely friendly too. The Villa is absolutely immaculate a real home from home with everything you could ever need. Fantastic views to wake up to every day and a sunset to take your breath away! Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. The resort of Almirida has just the right mix of cultures and a sandy beach that is perfect. The owners of the villa Pennie and Nektarious were lovely, very nice people, they made us feel very special. What more can I say, it was so good we've already booked for next year.' 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. On arrival you will immediately begin to appreciate the concept of the villa Stairs, both internal and external, lead to the upper floor where the living One link has forged Villa Kallisto with the Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: EOTMHTE1042K10003165601More

We've been regular visitors to Crete for many years: it’s a breathtaking island. But Villa Kallisto is special even by Cretan standards. The seaside town of Almyrida, just a few minutes' drive away, is an absolute pearl, with a long sheltered beach and friendly waterfront...More
