Contemporary and traditional architecture are combined to feature light wooden floors, expanses of glass, modern steel framed pergolas with wood paneling and natural stone walling. Crisp white and smooth greys teamed with accents of stainless steel complete the sleek stylish finish of the minimalist interior. The huge glass doors open on to the grand swimming pool terrace that appear to float over the sea below and beyond. Relax in heavenly luxury and just drift away!

About the property

Seafront Villa, Panoramic Views, Private heated Pools 50m from thebeach

SKplace comprises three modern villas, superbly situated on the tranquil bay of Almyrida, with breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea and magnificent panoramic views of the White Mountains.

Each villa reflects a different architectural approach with either traditional Cretan (Villa Anemos), island style (Villa Ammos) or modern – minimal (Almyra Residence) characteristics. From the peace and serenity of the private grounds, a gentle stroll leads to the sandy beach and pretty cove, lined with romantic waterside tavernas. The location is ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside, ancient archaeological sites and the historical yet modern town of Chania with its beautiful Venetian harbour. Each villa has its own peaceful setting of mature gardens and a private swimming pool -heated on request-overlooking the sea. Impressive glass doors open onto balconies and terraces with spectacular views. The high quality accommodation features 'Dux' Swedish bedding, deluxe outdoor furniture and all modern conveniences including electronic control systems for Satellite TV, music and air-conditioning/heating. We also offer a 5 star hospitality service for an unforgettable holiday experience.

Parking area for 6 cars (2 allocated per villa). Automatic night lighting. Remote control entrance gates and 24/7 Security.

About Katerina Tsigaloglou

Pavlos and Katerina Papadaki

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 Kostantinos 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.

Luxuary Living - In Crete

  • 5 of 5

Before I get over flowey with the overwhelming positives, it should be noted the pictures are of 3 different villas, you get one, and therefore I would check which pool etc. you are getting.

Almyra View is by far the best - biggest pool, biggest outside space and a spa inside complete with steam room.

Daily maid service, provided toiletries, 5 types of towel (inc. beach and pool) dressing gowns, slippers, food delivery, daily bakery service - this feels more like a relaxed hotel than a Villa. You have as much or as little services as you want, but most are free (only the chef, food delivery, butler, massage are a small premium)

The villas are not overlooked, even by each other, and Almyra was light modern and luxurious. The daily bakery van was excellent, and the quality brilliant. 1 Euro for a loaf of bread of Croissant / Pie is excellent.

The pool has a very deep end but large shallow area.

The villa has shaded areas for all bar about 2 hours a day around sunset.

The kitchen has all the amenities, music can be piped into every room.

Beds were comfy.

TVs in every room should you fance taking your eyes off the stunning view!

Less than 5 minute slow walk to Almyrida, so far enough away that you aren't in Almyrida, but close enough to walk to dinner if you want to.

BBQ is Weber, so excellent quality.

I honestly cant fault the whole experience.
