One link has forged Villa Kallisto with the past - translated from ancient Greek, Kallisto means Most Beautiful and each visitor will return home with their own opinion of whether this Villa was named for its architecture, furnishings or views.space profits from its position at the top of the villa for maximum impact of breathtaking panoramic views over Souda Bay and the commanding Crete White Mountains. Moving around, sitting or standing, each intriguingly placed window frames a different snapshot of the magnificent views. On arrival you will immediately begin to appreciate the concept of the villa as, with all three bedrooms on the ground floor, it requires minimal effort to unload your luggage and hang holiday clothes in the spacious wardrobes. Sliding glass doors open from each 'boutique hotel' inspired bedroom onto a patio by the pool area perfect for that first dip. All three spacious bedrooms (two double and one twin) have sleek spa inspired en-suite shower rooms equipped with hydro massage showers.
Stairs, both internal and external, lead to the upper floor where the living area is a light and uncluttered sociable space to enjoy whether cooking, dining or just 'chilling out'. Equipped with flat screen satellite TV, DVD Player and music system and furnished with hand crafted bespoke furniture - suede corner sofa, wood and glass dining table and leather covered dining chairs - the living area simply exudes style. Clean modern lines in the kitchen offer all that you might expect from a Villa of this calibre - large fridge freezer, electric fan oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and capuccino- espresso machine. Three double sliding French windows open onto a wide dual aspect terrace furnished for open air dining and overlooking the 5000sq m of olive groves in which Villa Kallisto is set and the exemplary 11.5m x 5m mineral spa water pool. With its brazen clean lines and uncluttered grey facades making a bold statement of modern architecture Villa Kallisto nevertheless sits surprisingly at ease amongst the olive trees. Far removed from ancient Cretan dwellings, Nectarios and Penny (who also own Villa Nynemia) commissioned their new architect designed Villa to showcase the style and taste of a new age and guests staying here will be lucky enough to discover the ideas behind the design. There is a purpose built barbecue and outside dining furniture near to the swimming pool which has roman steps leading into it and an overall depth of 1.50m All the villas windows are fitted with mosquito screens and electric roll down shutters and there is a washing machine in one of the shower rooms. **As an extra service at Villa Kallisto, for those clients who would prefer to enjoy their beautiful surroundings in the evenings without cooking, Penny has thoughtfully made take away delivery arrangements with one of the tavernas in Almirida, who will deliver your meal in serving dishes to Villa Kallisto (not tin foil dishes) and actually lay the table for you. Crockery etc can be returned the following day,** **NON-SMOKING PROPERTY** EOT PROTOKOLO No. 1288

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 harbor and little rocky coves, with the sea a marvelous melange of colors 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.
