Located on the outskirts of your traditional Cretan village of Aspro, and near to the blue flag beaches of Almyrida, Sophia’s Home is an example of a normal luxury villa in Crete.
In a elevated position the villa affords spectacular views over Souda Bay, the most important natural harbor in the Mediterrannean.Three of the bed roomed villa features a garden with fruit trees and grape vines, its own private infinity pool, shaded patios and a large roof sun terrace. The accommodation has anything you could need including full air conditioning, fitted kitchen together with all the appliances you may want. You will find a large corner unit in the lounge along with a collection of books, games as well as a DVD collection.
Considering rental prices start at 595 Euro per week (to the villa not per person) the level of luxury and privacy per individual is far greater than you will get from a hotel. It will be possible to chill and de-stress much quicker in your villa as the feeling of peace, quiet, privacy and tranquility is in some other league to the bustle, noise, lack of privacy and space associated with hotel.
Don’t feel that by hiring dalyan rentals you will get no backup, you may relax knowing that there is a team of English speaking professionals a few minutes from the villa to offer any assistance required. These folks are of a degree of competence that may be way above any standard, alcohol fueled and hungover travel rep.
You could make the option between dinning out at the very inexpensive local tavernas or perhaps try cooking or barbecuing a number of the locally grown food.
There are several luxury villas near to the seaside town of Almyrida, although nearly all are close enough just to walk to Almyrida we will however recommend getting a car to get the most out of the location, you da1yan always leave the car in the villa in the event you fancy a stroll. Local attractions include shopping and ancient sites at Chania and Rethymno along with many beautiful beaches to explore.
In case you have time other sites are the island of Spinalonga ( made famous by Victoria Hislops book “the area”) along with the ancient Minoan ruins of Knossos, Phaistos or Aptera (the Turkish fort on the Aptera ruins site is visible towards the Almyrida area). One unforgettable day is to take the sea cat for any day trip to the island of Santorini the very first site of Atlantis?
