Property description

Villa Toula

Just a little over a 5 mins drive from the foodie paradise of Armeni and closer to the small hamlet of Agios Pantes and the village of Neo Horio, Villa Toula is a beautiful stone house where Toula's natural talents as a homemaker spill into every corner. Drawing from times being slowly consigned to history, she has created a delightfully romantic Cretan interior with the generous use of embroidered filigree linen curtains, colourful hand-made rugs and lovingly polished furniture.
In the living area, a brightly upholstered Cretan Sofa sits comfortably alongside embroidered cushion seats either side of the inset fireplace. For most of the year the French windows will be thrown open to the little furnished, shady terrace under one of the twin arches that adorn the front of the villa, with lovely garden views. Spanning this open plan area, a wide stone arch separates the high beamed ceiling of the sitting area from the kitchen where old world charm prevails, but far from being a museum piece, every modern convenience can be found amongst the hand built wood cupboards.
The lovely double bedroom has French windows opening onto the second of the covered terrace with flowers growing all around and views across olive groves and onwards to far hillsides. Across the way, in the twin bedroom, a particularly cosy atmosphere has been enhanced by a ‘ladder’ staircase leading to a false mezzanine floor (parents of small children, please note), useful for storing luggage. The two bedrooms share a white tiled shower room.
Toula’s love of nature is conspicuous in the exceptionally pretty garden, which encircles her house. Little box hedges decorate her emerald green lawns and a profusion of roses, jasmine and many other flowers spill out of the flower beds.
A covered barbecue ‘house’ sits under olive trees whilst another gives shade to a stone table and bench, a cool picnic spot by the pool. This swimming pool terrace, accessed via half a dozen steps is a further delight where the sparkling pool is surrounded by stone sun bathing terraces furnished with sunbeds.A short 5 minute drive from a choice of tavernas and just 15 minutes from a choice of sandy beaches means that it is both a peaceful retreat and a good starting point for exploring the island for couples or families.
p.s. If you are looking for really good and off the beaten track tavernas then the nearby village of Fres has some excelent tavernas and we've heard whispers that some very notable personalities head for the tiny taverna at nearby Melidoni to eat.

Armeni, Crete

Something of a foodies paradise, the village of Armeni is notable for its large shady plain trees lining the main street where you will find a choice of simple cafenions and two excellent tavernas. There is also a small mini -market and amazingly, a well stocked delicatessen with wonderful local cheeses, yoghurt and charcuterie as well as a large choice of frozen fish. First thing, fresh bread is delivered to the cafenion on the small triangular central square you'll see what we mean! Plus, a sweet shop has just recently opened which offers a good choice to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Nearby Kalives (approx 10min drive)

18 km east of Chania and strung along the edge of Souda Bay, Kalives is still very much a Greek village that has taken tourism in its stride and the bustling main street reflects the status quo with local shops, mini markets, tavernas and cafes happily doing business with all and sundry.

There's a pretty little river which huge trout are rumoured to inhabit and where small plump ducks encourage children to feed them. Sheltered by the headland just to the east of the village is an excellent sandy beach with convenient cantinas selling cool drinks for sunbathers, whilst pedaloes and water skiing are readily available for the more energetic. Just back from the main thoroughfare in a warren of narrow streets tucked into the hillside, the locals go about their daily life in time honoured fashion and if you venture into the nearby countryside, you will discover numerous tiny villages in idyllic rural settings.

With almost a dozen tavernas, plus a number of small hotels and a choice of cosmopolitan little bars or ethnic cafenions, Kalives has much to recommend it to the visitor and yet happily manages to retain that quintessential Greekness.

Why Almyrida:
This is a perfect little house for couples or families who want to be near the villages & yet have beaches only a short drive away. The villa has a lot of 'home touches' & Toula, makes you feel very welcome.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Superb position of the pool if you are looking for seclusion! Great taverna in Agia Pantes which does home made pizzas in the wood oven. The Village of Armeni also has a superb taverna & yet the beaches of Kalyves & Almirida are great for small children & the lovely long sandy beach of Georgiopolis is superb if you like to have a patch of sand to yourself or use the sunbeds & umbrellas that are dotted along the beach. Take your pick. Access to the National Highway is easy from Villa Toula making travelling to either east or west very easy.
