Reviewed 31 December 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The villa offered us really flexible accommodation, and as each bedroom has its own balcony space, no one felt they had the ‘poor man’s room’. The view out of the front of the villa is stunning with the White Mountains providing a stunning backdrop to the olive groves and hillsides. In terms of amenities, the kitchen is not huge, however...

Management response:

Thank you Alison H for the very good review. We would agree that car hire is advisable, if nothing more than to carry groceries (!) though our daughters and their friends don't drive and usually have a very happy few weeks here each summer and seem to manage well enough. Thanks again!

This is a nice villa, but a major problem for us was the air conditioning. All the units had timers on them so that you could not have AC on for more than 2 hours. This is no good on the very hot nights we had. The villa is advertised as having AC but this is a bit misleading if...

Management response:

Hello Helen and thank you for your comments. However, you didn't mention the powerful ceiling fans in every bedroom and in the living room! These are not on timers, and provide a variable 3-speed cooling downdraft which 95% of our customers are happy with even in the hottest months. We introduced the aircon timers as part of our responsible eco-friendly...

Management response:

We have a 4 1/2 acre olive grove on which we have built 4 four bedroomed villas each with private pool. The villas are 60-80m apart for privacy and we welcome large groups for weddings etc who can rent out all 4 villas for groups up to 32.

Additional amenities & feature info
Villa Asteria sleeps groups in comfort, with parties of up to 8 people each having their own bed - no need for pull out or camp beds in the living room. When comparing our villas to others you see online you should ask the agent/owner the following questions:

1) How far away in metres is the nearest neighbouring house? ... What separates us?

2) Do I have to share a BBQ or pool with another house?

3) Is there easy access between kitchen and outside dining area? ... Or do I have to climb up and down a flight of stairs?

4) Will everyone in my party have a proper bedroom? ... Will some have to sleep on camp beds in the living/dining room?

AND if you are a parent with young children: Is the pool easily visible from the kitchen/living room area? ... Are there any safety gates around the poo...

About the neighbourhood
VILLA ASTERIA is situated 2 km inland of the fishing village of Almirida (sometimes spelt Almyrida) on Crete's north west coast. This is to the east of Souda Bay on the Apokoronas peninsular, about 20 kilometres from the city of Chania and its airport.

OUR LOCATION is ideal if you want a quiet family holiday with plenty of sun and sea, yet you are never far from civilisation and the bustling cafe culture and nightlife of nearby villages.

Nearby ALMIRIDA VILLAGE has around a dozen restaurants and tavernas, mostly along the seafront, so you can enjoy your meal just a few metres from the waves. We have personally eaten at every restaurant and have never had a poor meal, although perhaps some of the local village wine is a acquired taste! Cooking is invariably home-made Cretan (accordi...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: CHANIA: 20.0 km
Ferry: Chania: 20.0 km
The nearest airport is Chania (sometimes written as Hania). This is an easy half-hour drive away, depending on traffic.

Chania airport is your easiest option because there are regular flights on a Tuesday from most UK main & regional airports (except Scotland). Most of the villa rental market in West Crete is geared towards Tuesday - Tuesday bookings because of this. If you can organise your holiday to start on a Tuesday you are more likely to get the availability you prefer.

The alternative airport is Heraklion. Compared to Chania, flights may be slightly cheaper, and there is a wide choice of arrival dates. However, the drive is longer - just over 2 hours - but it is an easy straight road across the island and gives you the opportunity to see more of Crete.

Tuesday flights to Ch...
