This was one of the easiest & laziest holidays we have had, having rented multiple private properties for the last 20+ years. The pool is perfect and the garden feels very private, but the property is within 10 mins walk either uphill or downhill to the nearby village and town (with an abundance of good quality restaurants to choose from, a lovely beach and water sports). We have never used a hire car LESS than we did on this holiday! The property itself is very comfortable - good size rooms, very spacious and clean, and Peter & Julie are incredibly discreet but on hand for any guidance / advice (and are just lovely!). I would definitely recommend this property and I am sure we will be back. Thank you Peter and Julie - you have a lovely villa!
We have just returned from a thoroughly relaxing holiday spent at Villa Mistiko.
The accommodation provided us with everything we needed. A very attractive garden and spacious pool area. The location was perfect with a short walk into Almyrida providing views of the bay on your way down. Plenty of choice of tavernas and bars and a lovely beach.Julie and Peter were welcoming hosts but not intrusive in any way. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday.
Villa is exactly as advertised and very Private and Comfortable.Peter and Julie the Owners made us welcome but did not disturb our Privacy.
Quiet Villa with nice Pool and Grounds an easy walk from Beach and Restaurants.
Trip Advisor make contacting the Owner prior to paying the Total amount quite difficult when all we wanted was an address and directions but that is Trip Advisors process..
We were very pleased with our relaxing holiday. We stayed for a week with our two toddlers and one set of grandparents. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. Large French doors overlook the 1.3 m deep pool. The kids loved splashing in and out of the wet rim of the pool. The garden area near the pool was astroturf, so in good condition despite the sun loungers available for relaxing by the pool. The second garden area slightly away from the pool was meticulously maintained lawn, perfect for games of tag!
The kitchen area was sufficient for cooking. There was a dining table in the main living room and outside on the covered veranda.
Peter and Julie were friendly hosts, bringing us some extra toys to play with the kids.
Almyrida is a nice village. The steps down to the village give some great views across the bay and to the mountains beyond. Elia & Thyme restaurant was our favourite for adult dinner out.
Just returned from a really enjoyable week at Villa Mistiko. The owners (living upstairs) made us feel very welcome and gave us all the help and information we needed, without being at all intrusive. The villa had everything we needed - and we especially enjoyed the lovely pool and spacious private patio and gardens. The only very minor criticism was the very intermittent wifi signal. The little resort of Almyrida is a short walk down the hill (but not very accessible on foot for the elderly or infirm, which luckily we're not!) There were plenty of restaurants and bars to keep us happy for the week. The beautiful town of Chania is about a 40 minute drive away and well worth a day exploring. Also recommended are walks down the Samaria Gorge (for the fit - minibus pickups from the middle of Almyrida)and Imbros Gorge (for the less fit - you can drive yourself there). All in all a fab week - big thanks to Peter and Julie.
