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.

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 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).

Super pool, views and facilities in Cretan village

By K Thurston on 20-Aug-2019

Fantastic villa which enabled us to see village life in Crete. View spectacular and the pool a delight on hot days. All requirements thought of even down to an electric pump to inflate pool lilos! Comfy beds and two bathrooms meant for the 5 of us we could spread out and relax. Housekeeping excellent as is all the information about the villa and surroundings given prior to your visit by the owners. Super tavernas for evening meals just a short walk down the hill and excellent beaches 15 minutes away. Couldn’t recommend more, Villa Mia gave us an amazing two week holiday.

Had a wonderful holiday at the.

By S Bruce on 02-Aug-2019

Had a wonderful holiday at the wonderful Villa Mia, couldn't fault the villa, location perfect, 10 minute stroll to Gavalochori with 4 tavernas all serving delicious food, kids walked to bakery every morning for assortment of fresh pastries and pies! The villa is equipped to a very high standard, the pool and outside area has amazing views and feels very private. Great welcome pack containing lots of goodies, the owners and Yvonne (housekeeper) very helpful, no hesitation in recommending and hopefully will be back next year! Thanks

No hesitation in recommending

By S Clipperton on 06-Nov-2018

This is a lovely villa in a great location for those who want to explore the western part of Crete. The villa is equiped with everything you might have at home plus pool and has great views. The village is lovely with just a 10 minute downhill walk to a couple of great taverna's & local shops. Its not far fron Chania, the airport or the coast. The owners were very helpful and we would definately return.

Highly recommended

By Martin on 01-Oct-2018

Stayed for a week in September. Villa is in a lovely location overlooking the village which has good amenities. It's only a 7 minute walk to the village square which has a few tavernas & general stores plus a bakery. Villa is comfortable & very well equipped. It has amazing outside areas & the pool is particularly nice. The temperature is great & it's very clean. We would highly recommend it.

This property is simply outstanding

By Douglas on 01-Oct-2018

This property is simply outstanding; its creation and development have clearly been a labour of love for its very helpful owners. The situation, on the edge of a well preserved village, out in the country but not too far from the beaches if you want them, is first-rate, and the view from the villa, over olive groves, the sea and the mountains, is splendid. It has a lovely pool with borders of fragrant flowering shrubs. The villa itself is spacious, comfortable, attractively decorated, and amazingly well equipped. Towels and linen are regularly replaced by the excellent housekeeper (though she charges for pool towels, so bring your own).

Beautiful property

By David King on 02-Jan-2018

Stayed here in 2016 and loved it, wanted to try somewhere different in 2017 but struggled to find anywhere of its equal in views, beauty of pool and quality of accommodation. Villa Mia was so well equipped and maintained that we have been spoilt for always! If we returned to Crete we wouldn't hesitate to stay there. The peace looking out over the village from the pool and from the sun loungers whilst enjoying a book will stay in my memory.

There's only one Villa Mia

By Rachel Bourner on 03-Aug-2017

Villa Mia is an exceptionally well equipped villa in the beautiful unspoilt location of Gavalochori, on the North Western coast of Crete. Fixtures and fittings are of a high standard, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, lounge area including home entertainment, air conditioning in the bedrooms and living area. Family bathroom and ensuite shower room off the master bedroom. Spacious, well laid out and very comfortable for 4 adults.
The exterior has been equally done to a very high standard,with a beautiful swimming pool, roof terrace and a number of carefully placed tables to enable you to capture the sun at different times of the day.
The villa is a 5 minute walk from the village of Gavlochori and a 10 minute drive to the resort of Almyrida.
The level of detail provided by the owners prior to travelling is invaluable, especially on the journey from the airport if it's your first visit or indeed, first driving experience in Crete!
We would have absolutely no doubt in recommending this property and location to anyone thinking about visiting Crete.
