Villa Amygdalia


Details of the Villa

Villa Amygdalia is set in the hills overlooking Gavalahori with panoramic views of Souda Bay and the Apokoronou peninsula. The Villa has a private location set in a large plot with a backdrop of pine trees and almond bushes from which it gets the Greek name of amygdalia. It is close to the local regional centre of Vamos, a small traditional village with tavernas, small shops, the Agricultural Bank (with cash machine) local bakery and health centre. From the Villa there are scenic walks through the local unspoilt countryside. A rental car is essential with many small Greek villages with excellent Tavernas a few Kilometres away. The Village of Gavalahori is particularly well known for its lace-making cooperative and has all the charm of a local Greek Village. A short drive will take you to the beaches at Kalives, Almirida or Plaka; all of these have sea-front Tavernas serving local fish and local Cretan specialties. There are large sandy beaches and water sports at Kalives and Almirida. Kalives also has a supermarket and a variety of shops where you will be able to stock up on local produce and wine. Facilities at the Villa Amygdalia The Villa Amygdalia is a large three bed roomed Villa completed in 2005, it is built to a very high standard with heavy insulation and the hillside setting remains cool even in the hottest periods.

There is also a covered Veranda on the first floor that overlooks the White Mountains. A welcome pack will be provided, the Villa will be cleaned weekly with a change of bed linen for stays over one week. The local British Villa Manager will be on hand to ensure that your holiday in the Villa meets your expectations. Attractions and Places to Visit If you wish to explore the wonders of Crete from the Villa then the city of Chania is a short drive along the National Highway. Chania is the original capital of Crete and dates back to the Byzantium period. It is a lively city but with no large tourist amenities. The old city on the harbour front is a maze of small streets with shops selling local Cretan products, the tavernas in the old city offer the highest quality Cretan food and wine, some are located in interesting old buildings for example, one notable taverna is a converted Roman bathhouse. A variety of local trips can be arranged including a visit to Samaria Gorge, horse riding and sea excursions. If you wish to explore Crete then a 90 minute drive will take you to Knossos the primary archaeological site of Minoan culture. Alternatively you can drive up into the Mountains which can have snow on their peaks well into June, the culture and tavernas are very traditional and contrast with the sea-side villages. This Villa conforms with the Greek Government EOT Scheme for letting of holiday Villas and the registration Number is 1042K92002983301
