Experience the real Crete
"A beautifully presented comfortable villa, preserving a traditional feel with modern features set in the delightful village of Plaka above Almyrida. It was lovely to be able to swim in the pool, choose from 4 different outdoor areas to sit and eat, or wander 2 minutes into Plaka. Here, at the best taverna in the area, family-run ‘Elpis’ produce excellent home cooked dishes using produce from their farm and traditional family recipes. A short drive away great snorkelling coves and small villages to explore..."

Location of Villa Argiro
Almerida & Plaka, Crete

22 km east of Chania, Almerida, this pretty little seaside village has two gently shelving sandy beaches fringed by sleepy waterside tavernas as well as a small fishing harbour and little rocky coves, with the sea a marvellous melange of colours from deep aquamarine to a pastel turquoise, overlooked by the charming village of Plaka.

The Patchetts
Beautiful inside & out
"The villa is beautiful inside and very clean. The pool area is also a very pleasant place to sit on the recliners or at the table to eat. Several tavernas are in Plaka village within 2 minutes' walk from the villa. We drove down and up the hill to the sea front village of Almerida - we couldn't have walked back up the hill in the heat of August! Thank you for a lovely holiday."
Timo
Amazing !
"Amazing villa in a nice village. Our family really enjoyed staying in Villa Argiro!"
Beth
A wonderful Villa
"The Villa Argiro was a wonderful villa to stay in on holiday. We enjoyed the renovated home. It was very modern and clean. The pool was clean and refreshing. The views from the upstairs balcony were beautiful and nice to enjoy the sunset in the evening Each bedroom had A/C that worked great and kept us all cool. We ate at the local restaurants (El Pis was wonderful) and the little grocery store had everything we needed to prepare a few dinners and breakfast. There were a few essential items missing from the kitchen (pasta cutter). We had a great experience at Villa Argiro and would recommend to everyone"
David

We had So many balconies we had always one place Which you can lay down and relax in the beautifull surrounding and hear the Nice sound of the birds. The garden was lovely and had several places So you can Enjoy the sunshine on every moment of the day. Especially in springtime its beautifull. The swimming pool is Also a Great place to relax and Enjoy. The kids loved is to play there! The village Plaka is a small village With So many sweet Greek people. A supermarket which was open all day and they had a lot of Good things. Also there are several Good restaurants and Great coffee. Al on the corner of the house. We hired mountain bikes and explored the Other villages and surrounding around Plaka. The beach was 3 minutes By car or a 8 minute Walk downhill. Beach Almyrida, in a beautifull bay. There we rented canoes. And there is another beach Calyves on 12 minutes By car. which is Nice place With Also restaurants and Some toeristische shops.

Fantastic Villa & location
"What a Fantastic location, this is a hidden gem.The house is tucked away in a lovely little village. So peaceful and relaxing.The pool is ideal for those hot days with the children and local taverns and supermarkets welcoming you to their village! The food is amazing!! "
Barbara
Amazing Villa
"We all had a totally fabulous time. The villa was amazing, and everyone associated with it (Diane, the owners, Gogo the cleaner...) were great. It was a lovely, peaceful, comfortable, and convenient place to spend time with our family. We are very appreciative of everyone's efforts!"
Barbara
Comfortable and luxurious
"We all (six adults and a toddler) loved our stay at Villa Argiro in Plaka. It was very comfortable and luxurious, very clean, had everything we needed, and if we had any questions or challenges they were answered/looked after immediately. We enjoyed meeting the owners, the lovely person who cleaned twice a week, and the pool person/gardener. The location was excellent, being only a couple of minutes to Elpis taverna (delicious food!) and the mini-mart, and a 20 minute walk to the beach, and at the same time was a very quiet and peaceful place. We were able to go on excursions thanks to the helpful Almyrida taxi company who were very friendly and reliable. In Almyrida we would recommend Largos taverna. We had some very nice hikes in the area, lovely to walk by olive groves and orange and lemon trees and goats and spectacular blooms and of course we were constantly oohing and ahing over the breathtaking scenery. We would highly recommend Villa Argiro and would like to thank everyone who helped make our stay so wonderful. We hope to get back again one day.”"
Sarah & Family
Wonderful time at a wonderful Villa
"Thank you so much for our stay we had a wonderful time at a wonderful Villa and we’re very sad to leave. Diane and Georgos were amazing and responded to all our requests! We shall definitely be back!"
Luke & Family
Wonderful Villa in the heart of Plaka
"Wonderful Villa in the heart of Plaka with good array of restaurants and a small market shop which has everything you need. The owner was so helpful and had a nice bottle of wine waiting. The villa was stunning, clean, bright and spacious. Our girls loved the pool and although it was April the weather was warm and we couldn’t get the kids out of the pool or the jacuzzi bath! Lots of good attractions near by from gorge walking to Chania old town. Amazing food!, all in all a great stay!”"
