About the Location

The residence is in a very quiet location overlooking the Aegean sea and the White Mountains on Crete’s west coast in Almyrida, 35 minutes east of Chania. Almyrida is an ideal base for exploring the many picturesque inland villages, dramatic mountain gorges and some of the island’s best beaches and sheltered bays nearby. Car hire not essential since village facilities are 10 minutes’ walk. You will need a car only if you want to explore the island. Crete’s airport is in Chania, 22 minutes away. There is a private parking area just outside the villa.

Accommodation Details

The villa is part of SK Place, a complex of 3 independent villas. It has mature gardens and a private swimming pool. There is a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom on the first floor, along with a second bedroom with 2 twin beds, convertible to a kingsize bed, with ensuite bathroom. A baby crib can be added to any of the rooms. The third bedroom with 2 twins, also convertible to a kingsize bed, is on the lower ground floor. A family spa bathroom with a separate WC is on this floor, along with a small gym.

Style Notes

Modern Greek. Natural stone and whitewashed wood combine with subtle tones of yellow, white and blue and fit the island theme of sun, sea and sand. The light and airy interior is cozy and charming. Generous balconies and terraces enjoy far-reaching views over the pool to the sea. There are comfortable couches ideal for lounging under whitewashed pergolas and grand uncluttered spaces. We love the views, the lounge areas and the perfect location, a stroll from a village and a child-friendly beach.

SK Place was a dream inspired by the unspoilt beauty of the land handed down by our grandfathers, the traditional architecture of Crete and the youthful vibrancy of our children. This dream became a reality in 2008 when we built Villa Ammos, Villa Anemos and Almyrida Residence. Pavlos is a qualified architect trained in Milan. His work is based in the town of Chania, where he has run his own design and build practice since 1985. Katerina is a financial accountant and manager working since 1985 with Pavlos in his architectural-construction studio and her passion is interior design. Stella and Kostandinos are our kids and we named SK Place after them because we wished them to know that they too belong to this land of our forefathers.

Crete, Greek Islands

Ruins, rocky outcrops and rural charm

Off the southern coast of mainland Greece, beautiful Crete is the largest of the islands, packed with rural charm, archeological sites and fabulous mountains - a land where shepherds still tend their flocks wearing traditional dress. Blow the kids’ minds at the enormous Samariá Gorge, tantalize them with tales of ancient civilization, and check out the cave where Zeus was said to have been born.
