Villa Altair is nestled beautifully between the historic villages of Kalyves and Almyrida, just 300 metres from the Mediterranean Sea. Accommodating ten comfortably, there is plenty of space for families and groups to relax by the pool and watch the days fly by.

With a luxury modern interior, Villa Altair caters for all requirements. Its large open plan kitchen and dinning room provides the perfect atmosphere for all gatherings. The kitchen has a large patio door, providing light all-round the day into the villa whilst also giving a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains. The adjacent twin room has direct access to the garden and again takes full advantage of the beautiful views with large patio doors. The living space has an abundance of comfortable seating looking out towards the sea, and even includes a fire and satellite television for cosy evenings.

Upstairs a spacious landing area provides a light airiness to the villa, keeping it cool throughout the day. The master bedroom boasts an en-suite and a private balcony with views of the sea, perfect for a quite breakfast with your loved one. The walk-in wardrobe has more than enough room for luggage, so there is no need to pack light. Also upstairs are the twin and double rooms, each with large wardrobes and a shared balcony to enjoy the view. Finally, a family bathroom with a bath and shower is perfect for a relaxing.

Perhaps the most popular aspect of Villa Altair is its outdoor areas. With a large semi-covered terrace and family table, it is perfect for barbeques and meals with a beautiful view. Its expansive lawn and colourful flowerbeds are perfect for children to run around and explore in safety. However, the raised pool is the jewel in the crown, with surrounding sun loungers, it really is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

What you should know…

  • The closest beach is a stone beach, but sandy beaches can be found within walking distance in Almyrida
  • If you would like to visit the popular town of Chania, we would recommend hiring a car for your trip. Although the bus network in Crete is excellent
  • The closest restaurant is a fifteen minute walk, but the excellent food culture of Chania is well worth the journey in

Villa Altair has a fabulous location near the resort of Almyrida, close to the larger village of Plaka where helpful amenities and picturesque pebbled beaches can be found. Almyrida boasts a wider range of amenities as well as clean, family-friendly sandy beaches. Chania itself is just thirty minutes away by car, with its picturesque Venetian harbour, it really is a must visit. Chania International Airport is conveniently situated just thirty-five minutes away.

With gorges to be walked, ancient sites to be visited, time trodden villages to be discovered, and stunning sandy beaches to be lazed upon, this is the perfect Greek destination for holidaymakers of any age. Plus, food is in abundance. Look out for fresh seafood and traditional Greek moussaka.

The villa is 25km from the beautiful city of Chania. There you’ll find a charming Venetian Harbour and old port, alongside narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants. From Chania, it’s a two-hour drive to the island's capital Heraklion where you can immerse yourself in ancient culture. The vibrant port city is best known for the Palace of Knossos. The archaeological site dates back thousands of years to the Minoan civilisation. Guarding the city’s Venetian port is the 16th-century Koules fortress. A drive around Heraklion will also bring you to traditional villages, Medieval castles, Byzantine monasteries and secluded coves.

How to reach Chania

There are two ways to reach Chania: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane:
Chania Airport (CHQ) is only a 20 minutes ride away from central Chania. During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect Chania city and most of the villas. You can also hire a car from one of the many rental companies at the airport, or alternatively get a taxi to bring you right to your doorstep.

By ferry:
If you choose to do an island-hopping trip and use the ferry as a method of transportation, then the closest port is in Souda, only 8km from the centre of Chania. Only ferries from Piraeus in Athens or Heraklion in Crete. Heraklion port has a wider choice: you can also take a ferry from other Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos or Paros, but you will have to take a longer bus ride to reach your villa. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.
