High quality holiday experience
Everything about this villa was 5 star. Combining The best of staying in a villa and being in a quality hotel with daily housekeeping, pool and gardening staff on hand. The location is quite yet connected. This has to be the best villa we have ever hired.
Superb quality villa/location
We spent 9 nights at Villa Almyra in late October, although at the end of the summer season, we were blessed with good weather and wonderful host and housekeeping. The villa is as good as the images show, incredible vista from the villa looking out to sea and Crete heading west. The outside entertaining area/pool are brilliant as are the facilities and amenities inside the accommodation. Aside from the wonderful accommodation, Katerina really goes the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay and is always on hand with information of where to go and what to see, as well as really good tips on where to eat. We would not hesitate to recommend the villa. It is located about 30 minute drive from Chania and 45 min drive to Rethymno.
We will be back!
We had a wonderful time in Villa Almyra. Idyllic place with views of the sea and a lovely pool. The small resort of Almyrida with all the amenities and seaside restaurants is just down the road. The Villa is a dream for relaxation and Katerina and her team make it a very special place to stay. Thank you so much for all the good ideas and advice.
A perfect retreat
We had a great two weeks in Villa Ammos. Katerina, our host, gave excellent recommendations for trips and restaurants. The villa itself was beautiful and perfect for what we wanted - lovely private pool, extraordinary views and sunsets, great location out of but close to the village with beach, restaurants bars and shops in walking distance. Housekeepers were a model of discreet attentivemness. Highly recommended.
Fantastic Villa in an amazing location
Sea, lovely village and mountains as a backdrop. The perfect location to provide a much needed refuel. Everything is very well catered for and we literally wanted for nothing. Our only regret is that it couldn't have been for longer. We will be most definitely booking again next year.
I hope we will visit you again soon!
We enjoyed a fantastic holiday at Villa Almyra. A beautiful location with lovely sunset views. The villa was incredibly well stocked with all we needed for a family holiday and the welcome foods were a very nice touch. Katerina, Anna and all the team were so kind and welcoming. Lots of good advice and recommendations about how to make the most of our holiday and always very willing to please and so friendly and happy. The service was outstanding - truely above and beyond anything you would expect. It is obviously a labour of love for all involved and the passion shines through.
A luxury villa holiday in a beautiful part of the world
An excellant villa in a stunning location with lots of good restaurants within easy walking distance. The views of the sea and mountains were truly spectacular. All the people we met were friendly and could not do enough for us. We will be returning soon.
Telle la proue d’un navire survolant la mer, la villa est littéralement posée sur l’eau. Dépaysement garanti. Belle construction. Intérieur design. Superbes vues de l’intérieur et de l’extérieur. Plage à 2mn à pied. Ville à 5mn. Les propriétaires sont absolument adorables et fourmillent de bonnes adresses. Un havre de paix et de silence!
Modern luxury with a stunning view
We can fully echo the previews reviews! Katerina is a perfect host. She helps you organizing anything you need. As we arrived late at night, we even found coffee, fresh milk, butter, honey, some bread for the breakfast next day, a cold bottle of white in the fridge to enjoy a late night drink with a view as well as big fresh fruit basket. The daily maid service was fantastic. The view over the ocean and the bay is amazing at any time of the day and at any weather. You enjoy total privacy, too and a very quiet location right by the sea and a 5 min walk to Almyrida with some nice restaurants and a supermarket. Our entire family loved this place! It's pretty sizable and you have lot's of space insight and outside. We can highly recommend it.
Pure Luxury, Stunning Views
The three Villas in the complex are one nicer than the other, very spacious, very luxurious with stunning views over the sea and the bay. Each has a full size pool which is a real joy to swim or to relax in a fantastic view. Katerina the owner is always available to assist with any request, information , suggestion or goodies to enjoy in the house. The landscape is impeccable as well as the maintenance of the place inside and out with beautiful comfortable and expensive furniture. It offers daily maid service taking care of everything with a smile! We had a wonderful time, it was just difficult to leave !!! Hope to be back soon!
Luxury villa, spectacular views
We just returned from a perfect vacation at Almyra Villa in Crete. We had booked online and arrived with some trepidation. We have had mixed experiences with vacation rentals in the past. Immediately, any worries melted away. The villa is beautiful and the setting is breathtaking- the online images are real. Everything is within a short 5-10 minute walk. Although close to everything, the villa is very private and quiet. Katerina is the owner/hostess and keeps the facility and level of service beyond 5 star. She will arrange absolutely everything--car transfers/rental, restaurants (she knows all the best and local places), shopping, tours, boat trips, daily excursions. She is from Crete but has travelled far and brought the best of hospitality and design to this villa. We also enjoyed having our own spa day with steam room, massage and private yoga. We took advantage of it all. We will definitely return next year!
We first visited Villa Anemos, one of the 3 villas run by SK Place in October 2016. This is the first time I have reviewed the same place twice but it thoroughly deserves it after we stayed again with my family but this time in Villa Almyra this Easter. The villa is beautiful with the same amazing views as the other two. It was like our own little home but with the bonus of Katerina, the owner who organized absolutely everything for us-far and away beyond the call of duty-car transfers, car-hire, Easter restaurant booking...anything you needed. We would amble five minutes into the village for lunch where there are excellent friendly tavernas lapped by the sea on the golden sand, retire to the swimming pool and then as dusk fell head back to another favourite haunt. Having a very busy job it was like time stood still. We will return without a doubt. Show less
First class accommodation
A truly luxurious villa. The standard of design, build & outfitting is very good & the location is perfect. The views are unbelievable (white mountains & the sea) & the owner, Katerina, could not be more helpful both before & during the holiday. The bars & restaurants in town are 5 mins walk from the villa & provide plenty of variety. There is plenty to do with walks, kayaking & swimming. Alternatively, just enjoy the views from this beautiful villa.
