With uninterrupted views across the olive groves to the village of Gavalohori, and beyond to the sea and mountains, this is an ideal place for a private, quiet, get away from it all holiday for up to 6 people.
For 2020 we have obtained a Health First certificate from the Greek Tourism Ministry which demonstrates that the owners, staff and property meet the local regulations on COVID-19. This has involved a number of adaptations to cleaning regimes and facilities in order to reduce risk, make the place safer for guests and staff alike and ensure that you concentrate instead on the serious business of enjoying yourselves and having a great holiday!
The accommodation is all on a single level with large open plan lounge and dining area with an arch to a spacious kitchen with all the features you could want (and more). There is a master bedroom with king-sized orthopaedic bed and en-suite shower room, a family bedroom with double bed and bunks and a fully tiled bathroom between the two, with sunken corner bath and shower and a separate utility area with washing machine and tumble drier for off-season use.
Outside there is a large shady covered terrace which is ideal for dining and there are stone terraces and gardens all round the property with stone walls arches, trees and shrubs and Greek urns to add to the ambiance as well as ensuring privacy. There is a BBQ, numerous outside tables and chairs and plenty of sunbeds for relaxation.
The mosaic tiled pool uniquely wraps around the building and is heated all year round by energy-efficient solar heating, at no cost to the guests. It is entered by a set of gentle non-slip steps from the terrace by passing through a Cretan stone arch, which reflects wonderfully and at night is delicately lit by LED lighting. There is a pool "robot" ionising system to clean the water with minimal use of chemicals so there is no chlorine smell when in the water and its much kinder on your skin.
The villa is quiet and just above the village, so has superb views, but with all the village facilities just a gentle stroll away.
Inside there is a 40' LCD TV, satellite system, DVD player (and ~50 feature films), and hi-fi system, Wii games console, Bluetooth speaker plus inclusive wi-fi and phone. There is a also a Chromecast device on the TV to allow you to wirelessley send programmes and photos from your phone or tablet, and an Amazon Echo Dot to allow you to stream music to the Hi-Fi system, as well as have fun with Amazon Alexa voice controls!
All bedrooms and the lounge area have inclusive air-con and there are additional fans for comfort.
There is a gated gravel drive with parking for 2 cars and the views from the pool terrace are, though we say it ourselves, quite spectacular. You don't want to miss the sunsets!
Gavalohori village is located in the quiet north-western part of Crete, just a few minutes drive inland from the coast at Almyrida and is about 45 minutes from the nearest airport at Chania (CHQ), or about 2 hours drive from the island's other international airport at Heraklion (HER).
