About Maja Laksesvela
Hi there! We live in Kolbotn and work in Oslo, the capital of Norway. In the recent years, we have spent most of our vacations in Crete, which has become our second home. In 2006, when we for the first time visited Crete and Almyrida, we totally fell in love with this beautiful village and the surrounding areas with the White Mountains (Lefka Ori), the small island Karga right outside the sandy beaches in Almyrida and the hospitality of the citizens. We decided to buy our own property in this beautiful area. After 10 fantastic years in Crete, we decided to build a new house inside the village of Almyrida. We were lucky to find a nice plot just a few steps from the sandy beach and the center of the village. Now (in 2016) we are ready to share these two fantastic villas, Villa Karga and Villa Nova, with their distinctive architecture and design with you. We are sure you will enjoy your holiday at this wonderful place! Gunnar & Maja Laksesvela owners

Wonderful villa in a lovely location.
The villa was exactly as it appeared on your website. It was in a lovely location, luxurious and spacious, it was also well equipped and spotlessly clean. Natasa was really welcoming and helpful and made our stay more relaxed. I would unreservedly recommend it.
Thank you very much for Your nice review. It makes us very happy that the area and the villa met Your expectations for your vacation. It was a pleasure for us having you as our guests at Villa Nova.

Villa très confortable et décorée avec soin. Entretien irréprochable.
Très bonne situation à deux pas de la plage, des restaurants et des commerces dans un quartier très calme.
Les propriétaires sont disponibles et très sympathiques, tout est fait pour passer des vacances parfaites.
Almyrida est une petite ville balnéaire très agréable avec toutes les commodités et activités nécessaires pour passer de bonnes vacances.
Thank you so much for your fantastic review after your stay at Villa Nova. We are very happy to hear that you were satisfied with the villa and that you enjoyed Almyrida. If you turn back to Crete again, we would be more than happy to welcome you again. Thank you very much.
Villa Nova is situated in the scenic fishing village of Almyrida in Apokoronas region in the island of Crete, in Greece. The area is renowned for its remarkable natural beauty and its breath-taking scenery to the White Mountains and Souda Bay. Situated only 25 km from the town of Chania, 33 km from the Chania airport and 17 km from the port of Souda Bay, the villa offer the perfect base close to the beach for luxury holidays in Crete. Enjoy the most memorable vacations in one of the most enchanting island’s in Greece with your family, friends or your other half.
In the small fishing village, Almyrida you will find cafés, bars, bakeries, butcher shop, pharmacy, grocery stores, jewellery along with a variety of other nice small shops, all of which are open late in the evening during the peak season. There is also car-hire companies and ATMs. Along the beach you will find a number of small, idyllic seaside tavernas, many of which are family-run.
Almyrida also offers (non-motorised) water sports such as wind-surfing, catamaran sailing, kayaking, etc. A diving center provides diving experience for all levels of divers with expert instructors. A guided boat tour with snorkelling along coastline caves is also popular. The area is well suited for hiking, with many footpaths leading to surrounding villages.
Almyrida is an excellent hub for exploring the beautiful district of Apokoronas on foot, bicycle or by car, and visiting the myriad of delightful coastal and mountain villages. Although Almyrida has experienced some expansion in recent years, it has managed to maintain the distinct nature and relaxed atmosphere of a typical Greek village. The beach in Almyrida has been awarded the Blue Flag by the EU for its cleanliness. The sandy beaches are child-friendly, sloping gently to provide long shallows into the azure sea. It is a wonderful site for a delightful day at the beach for young and old alike.
