Overview

Apokoron Luxury Villas is a collection of five elegant stone built holiday villas with private pools; the villas are among the largest and most luxurious in western Crete.

Each villa features living space of 220m2 to 350m2 with private grounds of 600m2 to 1,000m2 and single or dual private pools with a breathtaking 45km view of the valleys leading to the White Mountains. Shopping and fine dining is only a walk away. The gorgeous beaches of Almirida and Georgoupolis are minutes away by car.

The villas are located on a hillside in the village of Gavalochori in West Crete. Gavalochori is a traditional Cretan village situated in the Apokoron region about 3km inland from the coastal village of Almirida. Its location is 25 km east of Chania which takes about 20 minutes drive along the National Road. Gavalochori is an old historical village with approximately 500 residents which has retained its colour and way of life. Several family run tavernas offer the visitor tasty dishes of Cretan cuisine. Near the small village square and within walking distance from the villa there is a coffee shop, a bakery, a mini mart, two tavernas and the Folk Art Museum.

The surrounding area has several beautiful nature paths for walking or biking which lead either towards the sea or towards the White mountains. The coastal village of Almirida is less than 10 minutes driving distance. In Almirida you may find all basic facilities, such as a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, ATM, gas station and taxi service. It has a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear water and a shallow section particularly suitable for small kids. This Blue Flag rated beach is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and sea sports services. There are several sea side tavernas and bars offering exquisite sea food and night entertainment.

The large town of Chania of course offers the visitor a wider range of choices for shopping, dining and night life mostly centered around the old Venetian port. Some interesting monuments in Chania are the covered Municipal Market, the Venetian fortifications, the Lighthouse, the Fortress of Firkas, the Arsenals, and the Othrodox Cathedral.
