About Almirida and Villa Lauren

Almirida is a 35 minute drive from Chania airport and just 30 minutes from the lovely Venetian fishing port of Chania.  It has all the shops you need for everyday living, and there's a bus service to Chania and nearby villages - as well as a taxi rank and car hire.

Best of all, it has one of the loveliest sandy beaches in northern Crete, with such gentle slope to the sea that you have to walk a long way to be waist deep (perfect for children and nervous swimmers).  What's more, the beach is fringed by little family-owned tavernas!  

Villa Lauren was built in 2002 to a modern Cretan  design.  The house is on three floors.  The spacious open-plan living-dining room and kitchen is on the top floor which has its own balcony overlooking the bay (see right). 

The lower ground floor has a very large double bedroom with large walk-in wardrobe - and a full bathroom.  The middle floor has a double bedroom (with balcony) and a shower room.  There's a third, very large covered balcony which has no view, but can be very useful for airing towels or even as an occasional third 'bedroom'.
